Successful Home Buying Stories

A Safe Space to Call Home

Blake Keziah helped Ryran and Heather W. who were trying to find a safe place to call home. This family had been to other lenders and turned away before they found Blake. After he was able to approve them, they went searching with Sally Sharber. They wanted to find somewhere that they could have their kids safely enjoy the neighborhood. Finally they landed a contract on a house next to their school! Thank you to Sally Sharber with RE/MAX Coastal Associates, Allison Evans with Howard Hanna, and G Elvin Small for helping close this transaction.

"Blake was always there when we had any questions. I would highly recommend him and his team. Thank you for helping me and my family get our first house."
-Ryran W.

Second Time's the Charm

Blair Crews helped Paige and Michael T. get into a home they love. After the first home Paige and Michael fell in love with didn’t work out they were devastated, their realtor then referred Paige and Michael to Blair, and he helped get them into a new home that they loved even more. Thank you to  Amy Porter with Modern Mountain Real Estate, Hazy Oberski with WNC Realty Group, and Goosmann Rose Colvard & Cramer for helping close this transaction.

"Blair was absolutely incredible. We are first time homebuyers and he made the entire process so easy and we felt comfortable from the beginning. He took the time to go line by line on documents if I had questions and would respond back to me within a few minutes if needed as well. I truly felt like he was on our side and had our best interest at heart."
-Paige and Michael T.

History at Home

Laura Lail helped Bethany C. who fell in love with a home built in the 1800s, but she was worried about financing. She needed to pull funds from retirement and had to qualify on her own. The sellers also fell in love with Beth and at closing passed down a book that had followed the history for the home and it’s owners.  Sherry Hollingsworth with Tarheel Realty II, Sandra Mims with EXP Realty LLC, and Benbow, Davidson, and Martin helped close this transaction!

"Laura is incredible to work with. She was on top of everything from my loan application to final closing. She was quick to repspont to any question or concern I had, and with great communication she made the process vvery straightforward for me. Cannot thank her enough!"
-Bethany C.

Home for a Family

Jeff Reeves helped Stephen and Madeline D. who started their home search when they learned they would need more space in about 9 months!  Jeff and his team prepared a pre-approval for Stephen so all parties knew he was a qualified buyer. Their realtor, Debbie Higgs found an amazing home for them in the Concord area near the soon to be grandparents. Deanna Breuer and the Fairway Team went to work as soon as we received their offer to purchase. Deanna and the Fairway Team had a Clear to Close in 8 days! Thank you to Debbie Higgs with Allen Tate, DeAnne Haney with Re/Max, and Hankin-Pack for helping close this transaction!

"Jeff is so great and will keep in touch with you at all times to ensure a smooth closing!"
-Stephen D.

First-Time Buying

Dominic Elia worked with Cari and Sagar who were moving from Illinois to purchase their first home, a beautiful new build in Wake Forest, NC.  They planned on using builder financing until Fairway stepped in with a better rate and lower closing cost.  Closing was originally scheduled for 3/31/21, but kept on getting pushed back with little communication from the builder.  Having already sold their home in Illinois, the buyers were becoming increasingly frustrated, and stressed that they wouldn’t have a place to live until they could close.  Kim Waters of Remax was instrumental in staying on top of the builder and the county to get the loan issued.  Long story short- thanks to Kim’s diligence we received the LO in time, closed the loan, and the happy couple are now enjoying their new home! Thanks to Kim Waters  with Re/Max, LGI Homes, and Woodson Sayers Lawther Short Parrott & Abramson LLP for helping close this transaction!

"Dominic made us very comfortable with the approach and ensured we were covered from the beginning and ensured he shared all the nitty gritty’s. Overall he has been an excellent help with someone who is buying for the first time"
