Fairway Core Values

What you can Expect from Fairway

  • We were having issues with another mortgage company when we were introduced to Fairway Independent Mortgage from our Realtor. Not only did they step in and help get us set up with the best option possible for us with the VA loan, we were able to close with ease. When we heard how much they support Wounded Warriors (with myself being one), my wife and I were instantly sold – these guys were an amazing group! Can’t thank Justin Exner and his team enough for putting us in the first home we can call ours!

  • Sabrina has guided me through two loan processes – from initial application through closing. She is professional, knowledgeable, efficient, and very easy to work with. She returns phone calls in a timely manner, and she is always on top of whatever needs to be done in order to get the loan closed on time. I can’t imagine working with anyone better in the mortgage lending business!

  • I would like to take this opportunity to share my experience, with regards to having worked with Mike Schumacher. Mike is very interested in learning who you are as a person; he desires to make a personal connection with you. During the loan application process, he is very involved with providing guidance and advice. I have worked directly with Mike on several home purchases and I have been very impressed with his knowledge and strategy. Mike is available to his clients during evenings and weekends. I strongly recommend Mike, as I am certain he is a top professional in his field.

  • Working with Dawn and her team was really an amazing experience. Fast, reliable, and ever efficient – Dawn was able to get the underwriting complete and my house closed within not only the short time-frame requested, but also all via email while I was overseas in Afghanistan (she definitely put in long hours to be available for the time difference)! Her team really did a fantastic job on the closing. I would definitely use Fairway again and recommend it to anyone looking for excellent customer service with their home buying experience! Thanks!

  • I have worked with Mr. Engel on numerous occassions. My first experience with his knowledge and dedication to his clients came through him representing a firefighter purchasing a property I was listing. I was so impressed with the way he handled every facet of that transaction that I too began working with him. Not only is John an excellent Loan Officer but you would be hard pressed to find a more committed family man and a person more giving to his community and the people who serve it. Truly deserving of five stars!

  • Joanne Hilliard made our home buying process seamless! She is upbeat, attentive, responsive, knowledgeable, and personable. We felt at ease when working with Joanne and knew she had our best interest in mind! Zero delays or headaches, along with a great rate. Thank you, Joanne.

  • We had the pleasure of working with David to purchase our home recently. He was a true professional throughout the process. My wife and I were very particular about knowing as much as possible about our options. David was incredibly patient with us, giving us detailed explanations to all the questions we asked. He provided us with timely updates and made sure we felt comfortable along the way. David kept our Realtor informed throughout the process as well. We went to settlement on time and found the home buying process much less stressful because we were working with someone we could trust. I would strongly recommend David if you are looking to buy or refinance your home.

  • I would refer Brian Ghanbari to anybody and everybody who needs a mortgage help or financing. Dealing with Brian has been the easiest and least stressful experience I’ve ever had. He took care of everything, keeping me informed along the way. Everything was taken care of promptly and accurately. Brian really knows what he’s doing and what he’s talking about, and took the time to explain in detail everything that I didn’t understand, which was quite a bit, being as this was my first home purchase. Thank you, Brian.

    Jimmy L.
  • We recently refinanced our home and needed somebody who could take care of this without a lot of hassles. Justin and his team at Fairway were outstanding! They were able to keep the process going, and although we had a slight delay from when we were supposed to settle, they kept us informed and walked with us right up until the end. And then, as an added convenience, we were able to do the settlement from the comfort of our home. Great experience and we would definitely use them again!

  • There are some people that are good at their jobs, and there some that are really good. Dawn is really good! It has been a pleasure working with her on the purchase of my new home. The formula is pretty simple, you call-she answers or gets back to you in minutes, you email- she replies back, got a question she answers it- in English not in robot banking talk. I wish they could all go this smooth. If you are shopping for real estate, thinking about shopping for real estate Call Dawn first.
