    Lisa was awesome. We closed in less than 15 days. The process was seamless and she was amazing with her communication and how we processed our paperwork.

    Lisa Marie and her team were terrific in handling our Mortgage process in a timely and efficient manner. Such a great experience compared to our last Mortage refi with B of A. We will not hesitate to recommend Lisa Marie and Fairway Mortgage!

    Lisa was extremely well with communication. She was always a text, call, or email away and ALWAYS responded right away. It was nice to know that the person facilitating the largest purchase I will make was actively participating in the transaction. Although I’ve never physically met Lisa, I feel like I’ve known her for a long time! She’s se the whole process completely painless and stressless!!

    If I could give Lisa and the staff there 10 stars I would. They were very easy to do business with. They communicated effectively and didn’t waste our time or theirs. They told us what they needed and set appropriate expectations. They went above and beyond by doing the extras to get the deal done! Not only would I refer them, I will look to use them again for my family’s mortgage needs.

  • May 22, 2021

    Lisa stepped in at the eleventh hour and saved my house closing. My original lender was awful and nearly cost me the deal. Lisa assured me she could get it done in our short time frame and she followed through on her promise. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a trustworthy and knowledgeable mortgage lender. Thanks!

  • March 12, 2021

    There was a glitch and all our monthly estimates provided by Lisa/Fairway did not include PMI, HOI, or taxes even though we asked to be sure. We were unprepared for the extra almost $500/mo once we went under contract. That's when the glitch was discovered and we learned that every quote we had gotten while house hunting had been inaccurate. Lisa was able to get us a credit towards closing costs for the error. Lisa did go above and beyond calling listing agent to help us get our house though!!

    Rachel S.
  • March 11, 2021

    Lisa is very easy to talk to. Our questions were answered well and quickly. Once the game plan was agreed to, all went very smoothly.

    Just wanted to thank you both for a wonderful and smooth closing experience. As you know, we initially tried to refinance with our current mortgage company as we figured it would be easier, and it was not a good experience. So glad we chose you guys. We really appreciate the professionalism, responsiveness and care you showed us.

  • January 22, 2021

    I had the opportunity to work with Lisa Marie from Fairway Independent Mortgage. This was our first time buying a home and Lisa Marie made the process so easy. Buying a home and the language of everything was so foreign to us, but she made she she broke everything down to where we understood. She worked so hard to answer my many questions through phone calls, emails and text messages in a very timely manner. She is very knowledgeable and did her best to make sure we were able to get our first home and get the best rates for us. I would recommend Fairway and Lisa Marie to anyone in the market looking for a lender. We are so very thankful!

  • January 20, 2021

    We are first time home owners and all of this was almost like learning a foreign language. Lisa Marie made the process so much easier. She explained everything in terms that we understood. She was very patient, very friendly and did everything that she could to make everything work. She seemed very transparent during this process which i loved because i hate being in the dark about things whether good or bad. Overall she was awesome, knows her job well and had great people skills. 🖤

    This was our second time working with Lisa and our third time with Fairway mortgage. We have always had stellar results from Lisa. With her great communication skills and attention to detail, she explains in detail what she and her company can offer and untangles what can sometimes be a complicated decision, especially when one is considering using a competitor. The end result is that she does come through with the best offer for our needs when compared to others.

    Tom D.

  • December 16, 2020

    Communications initially was lacking. I originally reached out months ago for a refi and did not get a prompt response. It to my responding to a FB post from my realtor to get the ball rolling. However, after that communication was good.

She's an excellent communicator and the process was somehow both efficient and completely transparent. This is the 3rd time I've used Lisa and her team and I'll continue to do so!

    Lisa saved the day and closed in 5 days. Didn’t know her or knew anyone who did. Our first lender dropped the ball and we need to come up with 17k more on top of the 30k we had put down. Long story short. I emailed Lisa with an Hail Mary pass and she fixed everything. She is a miracle worker and by far the angel we needed to get the job done. Love ya JR

    Lisa Marie and her team are amazing. They helped us twice just this year! Most recently she reached out about a conversion to VA since she knew that was our goal. We skipped two months of our mortgage, will be getting cash back from out escrow and we will be saving almost $400 a month on our mortgage. Over the life of our loan we will now save $116,000...all because of Lisa Marie being the BEST IN THE BUSINESS!

    Erick Y.

    Lisa brought a level of involvement to her work that went well beyond what we had experienced in the past with other lenders. She was was not only technically excellent, but gave a personal touch to our interactions to reassure us that she cared about our experience with this part of the home buying process. We would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a mortgage.

    Thomas D.

    Lisa goes far beyond the average lender. Not only technically excellent, but one who cares about her client's experience. It was very reassuring to have Lisa guide us through the maze of requirements during the whole process.

    I switch to Lisa from my bank I have been with for 18 years. Her knowledge and personal attention drew me in, and I was ready to move with her and that was before she took almost a full point off of my rate with my bank. The feeling that your are able to fully trust someone with a home purchase is a tremendous relief. I would go with Lisa again without hesitation.

    Without Lisa Marie, I would have lost the home of my dreams. I work in the restaurant industry and because of that I have different hoops to jump through financially and I work crazy hours. None of that hindered Lisa Marie's ability to deliver! She kept me on task, let me contact her whenever I had a question and she worked with the IRS to help me get last minute paperwork (Literally). Lisa Marie cares about her clients and treats them like family. There's no one better! 5 Stars!

    Lisa was "totally" awesome with communication, explaining the process, being patient with questions, returning phone calls & emails, and her customer service was like nothing I have experienced. I'm going to hire her when my company hits 5 million dollars but I probably won't get the chance because she is so good she will start her own company. God bless you Lisa Shapiro and all that you do. Words can't express how great our experience was in purchasing our new home. Sincerely, John & Desiree.

    During our closing we discovered that the seller had missing paperwork from years ago that delayed our closing. Lisa made sure we stayed calm and informed and encouraged. She helped us to trust the process, and she gave us every confidence that things would work out, which of course they did. Lisa had obviously been there before and her experience in difficult situations allowed us to trust her to get the closing accomplished. Communicative, accessible, perfect. I highly recommend Lisa Shapiro!

Not one time did we feel like our loan was not being taken care of professionally. If we buy in North Carolina again, Lisa Marie will get our business without a doubt!

    Eric E.

    Lisa Marie is a pro. She walked us through our loan in NC while we were in California. With all of the stress of moving, one thing we didn’t worry about was our loan going through. I’ve already referred friends to Lisa Marie and will use her for all of my loans in NC moving forward.

    Well buying a home is great overall but to have a lender that truly cares about you is the most important. Lisa Marie was so caring throughout the whole process. She listened to my needs and made things happen for me without hesitation. I couldn’t have done it without her. With being really young and not having a lot of people their for you , it meant a lot to have a lender that cares and to help guide me in the right direction. She is truly a wonderful person.
