  • August 2, 2020

    Kim was wonderful in helping me to secure a mortgage. She notified me with any changes that came about. I would recommend her to everyone. Kim’s staff was excellent as well. They kept me informed what was going on during the whole mortgage process.

    Robert G.
  • July 24, 2020

    We were disappointed in the lack of communication. When we did get in touch with Kim she was great on the phone. A few times we received responses to our emails that were intended for different people, and we also did not get updates along the process without us first reaching out. The week before closing we did not hear anything, nor did we hear anything the week after closing.

    Kim Venable was very professional and worked quickly in getting me a mortgage loan. She always returned my calls and she explained everything in detail. This is the second home that Kim has helped me buy and I would trust her again to get the job done. The entire team was excellent and it was a pleasure doing business with Fairway Mortgage.

    For our first time purchasing a home, we really felt that we were being taken care of and lead down the right direction. Kim was very personable, open and honest through the whole process and was always there to field any questions. Her and the fairway team were always on top of it.

    Derric F.
  • June 3, 2020

    Kim was great. Our first Zoom chat was a bit surprising because the first screen we saw was the financial profile of the couple right before us (!) I'm glad we didn't know them. The other people handling our loan did not give us confidence and assurance. It didn't seem like they were talking with each other. The information they provided was unclear, and sometimes just wrong. And I shouldn't have to ask for a secure web link to upload sensitive documents.

    Marc D.
  • May 19, 2020

    Fast and Easy overall. Only one little moment of doubt but that had as much to do with timing as anything regarding payoff.

    Spencer S.
  • May 18, 2020

    Kim had our best interests in mind when discussing and figuring out options for refinancing.

  • March 6, 2020

    Kim and her team were really great and really patient with me 🙂 This was my first time doing a refinance and they answered all my questions and made sure I understood every step of the process. Other lenders made me feel like I was just a number. We had a small mixup on closing day (not anyone's fault) but the issue was fixed extremely fast and the team was very responsive! Would definitely recommend Kim to friends and family and will use her next time I refinance or purchase.

    Kim has been great! I needed to resign some docs at the law office. Kim called to remind me. I said I was going there but stuck in traffic. Kim called law office to tell them I was running late! No big deal in one way. But. It was a huge deal to me!!! Thanks, Kim. You're awesome!!!
