Chris was honest and transparent. Always responsive. Educated me on how other companies can be deceitful or sloppy resulting in surprise charges at closing. Made the process easy. Small glitch with funds wiring transfer on back end, but quickly corrected.

Chris and team were super knowledgeable, great communicators, and always quick to respond. They made an out-of-state home buying purchase smoother than any in-state purchase I've ever experienced, ironically enough. Great to work with, start to finish.

I can’t praise Chris Shumate and his team enough! This is my 3rd go around in a home buying or refinancing process. From beginning to end I never had to question what I needed to do, what my status was or question if I was moving forward in the best way for my family and I. I appreciate everything about this team and making this transition in life as smooth and worry free as possible.

Chris made the process calming - during difficult times. He really explain everything in detailed for me. I didn't feel rushed and felt comfortable asking additional questions. I'm happy I made the decision to have chosen Fairway and was matched with Chris.
