  • Joel Saylor - Houston, Texas

    Jim is great to work with. We recently bought a home in Houston and Jim was able to get financing for us when others could not. We bought from out of state and Jim was enormously helpful in describing what to expect and walking us through the process. Jim was always on top of the status of our application and purchase. He is extremely responsive. Calls or questions were usually answered the same day. I highly recommend Jim

  • Landtitle USA - Houston, Texas

    Yesterday was my first experience with Fairway Mortgage, in particular, James Ward. I am an Escrow Officer at LandtitleUSA, specializing in builder accounts. I often work with repeat mortgage companies and know the drill all too well. It was very refreshing, to say the least, to have the banker at closing. Giving the home buyer that additional support at the closing table is a task that has been pushed to the wayside. Mr. Ward was there to answer any questions. The funding process was expedited and I was able to issue checks at the closing table. I look forward to working with Fairway in the future and highly recommend this company!

  • Daphne Isom; Houston, Texas

    We have been wanting to purchase a home for many years. We had so many unknown answers to an endless number of questions. James, was extremely helpful & willing to go the extra mile for us. He made the mortgage aspect of our home buying experience enjoyable.

  • John Dungan; Houston, Texas

    My refinance experience was much less stressful because of James. He thoroughly explained the process and what was needed. He was always available to answer questions and promptly returned calls. His level of customer service exceeded my expectations and that of banks that I had initially asked about refinancing with before finding that their review could take months and also seeing horror stories online about the banks losing information, repeating requests, and delaying closing. My closing with Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation was convenient, easy, and painless. I am very satisfied and will eagerly refer anyone wanting to refinance to James.

  • Courtney Katz - Realtor; Keller Williams Realty (Metro); Houston, Texas

    James is a highly professional and competent mortgage lender. I had the pleasure of working with James when he assisted my client (who was a first time home buyer) procure a loan for his home purchase. First time home buyers ask a lot of questions and need to be guided throughout the buying process and Jim was able to do this with ease. Jim was incredibly thoughtful and even attended the closing.

    I highly recommend him to anyone looking to get a loan for a home purchase.

  • Daniel McEntee; Associate Vinson & Elkins; Houston, Texas

    When our pre-approval was lost and our original mortgage lender could not find us another loan due to our unusual circumstances, James stepped in to save the day. He delivered great results, was an expert about what needed to be done, and was amazingly fast, managing to secure us a loan on a very tight time frame (we were already under contract). James also provided his services at an incredibly reasonable rate (we know - we worked with several agents). James is also a friendly person to work with, and he made the application process much more pleasant than it had previously been for us. The next time we need to obtain another loan, we will definitely use him again, and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a home loan
