At Fairway, we strongly believe that the way we do things is just as important as what we do. Every employee is guided by our Core Values, which form the foundation on which we work and conduct ourselves. These values are not descriptions of the work we do as a company or the strategies we employ to accomplish our mission; they underlie our work, how we interact with each other, and guide us in determining how to best serve our customers, employees, and local communities.

A Few of Our Happy Clients


Hands down, Shelley Sessions!!! She made a complicated situation go as smooth as possible. She worked at thinking of all scenarios that could come up and had us work those by providing any documents needed that could be asked for ahead of time. Great forward thinking and we are very appreciative of that. Thank you for all your work!

As a self employed individual, documenting my financial information was challenging. Karen was not the first broker that I contacted, but she was the first broker to say she could help me. Karen worked hard to get me qualified and got me a great rate on top of that.

Christopher P
Charlotte, NC

So grateful that Jane and Tom helped me through the Loan process. They made everything so easy on my end and helped me close in record time. I had complete trust with them every step of the way and am so thankful I switched to FAIRWAY I would never have received the rate I got nor finished in three weeks with no errors or set backs. They made the process stress free! Very grateful! Thank you!

Prompt attention, and constant communication throughout the process. Jeff was even texting me prior to the closing with an offer to assist/answer any questions that might come up during closing. Then a follow up after closing to make sure that everything went smoothly. Jeff and Carolyn have been a great support for us as we have used them on multiple transactions.

Melanie is super diligent! She found us the best deal at the best time and made sure it provided everything we were looking for. She is an excellent communicator and has great follow up.

Stephen S

Kerry was super informative and was never pushy. She worked with us and even when competitors gave better offers, she always worked with us to have a counter offer. She was always available and seemed very honest (main reason why we went with her)!
