16 May Fairway Dedicated Service Award
Four Fairway of the Carolinas team members recently received a Dedicated Service Award in recognition of 10 years of service with Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation.
Congratulations to Tom Tousignant, Hannah Heaslet, Carolyn Blondin and Rick Melville. We are grateful for their dedication, perseverance and commitment to serving others. The impact they each have on our region is immeasurable.
Over the past decade, Fairway of the Carolinas has changed dramatically. When senior vice president Tom Tousignant opened a branch in Charlotte, his team included only one other loan officer and a processor. Times are much different now.
“Today, we have over 80 great employees on the team and served over 1,800 people in 2017,” Tom said. “Each new hire and each loan we close is an opportunity to help people do better in life and brings joy and a sense of accomplishment each day.”
Hannah Heaslet, the operations manager for Branch 855 in Charlotte, summed up her experience at Fairway.
“It has been amazing and fun to watch Fairway grow over the years (both our branch and the company),” she said. “There are so many people here who truly care about taking care of clients and getting them into their homes. It’s wonderful to watch people’s dreams of homeownership come true. I am truly honored to be a part Branch 855.”
Rick Melville is amazed by how fast the time has gone by.
“Holy cats, that was quick!” he said.
Carolyn Blondin has been in the mortgage industry for 20 years, and she completely agrees with Rick. She has stayed in the field because she enjoys helping people, which she’s been able to do in two ways.
“As a loan officer, I have been able to educate our clients on the different mortgage options available to them so they can buy the house they want and make it an enjoyable process,” she said. “And, as a trainer, I have been able to help our Mortgage Planners and operations team at 855 grow in the different aspects of their jobs so they feel confident in their abilities.”
As Fairway continues to grow and expand, we are excited to see continued success for the Fairway of the Carolinas region. We put our best foot forward every day to better serve homebuyers in the Carolinas as well as provide them with the best resources available.
