Learn About The American Warrior Initiative

Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation takes pride in our superior customer care and our efforts to find the best loan at the best rate for our clients. What many people do not know is Fairways dedication to give back to the community. Through a partnership with The American Warrior Initiative (AWI), Fairway is able to make giving back and making a difference in the community part of the fundamentals of our organization.

Sean Parnell and Louise Thaxton founded AWI in April of 2012 with a mission to serve those who have served us and continue to protect the American Dream. Sean is a Retired Army Infantry Captain with the elite 10th Mountain Division and veteran of 485 days of fierce fighting along the Afghan-Pakistan border, and Louise is producing branch manager for Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation.

The mission of the American Warrior Initiative is to educate, encourage and inspire Americans to give back to our military. AWI’s partnership with Fairway allows them to educate real estate and mortgage professionals on handling the home purchase needs of active duty and military veterans with excellence.

United States active military and veterans have fought and given so much to protect the American Dream, but unfortunately they are often targeted by shady businesses and have been cheated, scammed or overbilled. By learning how to be a better partner to them during the home buying process, we can become a watchdog for the warrior by pursuing excellence in serving the home purchase needs of military clients.

There are many things that AWI offers to mortgage and real estate professionals. AWI brings boot camps throughout the county where real estate agents have the opportunity to receive continuing education credits. AWI also offers the Military Mortgage Specialist™ Designation, which is exclusive to Fairway Mortgage Planners. Through this designation, mortgage loan professionals, loan processors, closers, loan assistants, and branch managers, can be thoroughly trained and equipped to handle with excellence the mortgage loan needs of our active and former military clients.
