    Matt was very communicative and always returned messages in a timely fashion and took into account that buyers in this remote purchase were in time zones up to 6 hours apart. He was also very easy to deal with and was upbeat and friendly. His processor Charity was also responsive and nice to work with. Overall a good experience.

    Matt was on top of everything in order to get us a timely and smooth closing. He checked in almost daily and when he wasn't in touch, his assistant (Charity) took over. He even attended our closing (first time we've ever seen this type of service). His passion for excellence is to be commended. Thank you, Matt and our team for the best mortgage experience we have ever had (and we've had many!).

    Matthew went way beyond any expectations to assist us with our loan. He helped us work through a mountain of problems to include credit problems as well as problems in dealing with a difficult seller. All during a national crisis that had most business shut down! Our loan would not have happened without Matthew O'Connor!!! Thanks Matt!!!

    Matthew was great to work with. Above all, the constant availability for communication was outstanding. As a Realtor, we believe open communication between clients and pros (lenders, Realtors, lawyers, inspectors etc) is very important to a smooth and successful transaction. Matthew and his team exceeded expectations. Looking forward to working with Matthew and Fairway in the future.

    Fairway was a great company to work with. I'm a truck driver, and that poses it's own challenges. Matt O'Connor and Fairway met the challenge head own and got it done. Great company to have on your side. Thank you again Matthew O'Connor and the Fairway team.

He also kept the lines of communication open with status updates, and was either available or promptly returned my call every time I contacted him.
