Scott Whitlock moved to Napa, CA at the tender age of three and has always felt at home in Wine Country. A graduate of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Scott married and moved back to Napa to purchase a home and raise his five children (four boys and one girl). After college he pursued a career in the wine industry before becoming a Loan Officer. As a disabled veteran, he makes it a priority to specialize in VA loans and working with the military community. With over 10 years of experience, he stays current on a wide variety of programs including FHA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Jumbo loans. As a proud father of five, he understands the importance of taking care of family and finding the right loan for the customer.
“A big reason I decided to go into the loan industry was based on my first home-buying experience. My wife and I were young, and we had no idea how complicated it was to purchase a home. We had to rely and trust upon the expertise of those who had been in the industry. When you purchase a home, it’s not like a car, you are invested for much longer and the decisions you make ultimately have greater consequences. After we purchased our first home, I wanted to help others achieve that same dream, and so I took the necessary steps to get to where I am today.”
With his extensive experience, Scott understands the importance of having the right program for the customer purchasing a home. While there are a number of other lenders available, there are none who work as hard as the Fairway team.
“Fairway is the best at what they do, and they offer extremely competitive rates. The camaraderie and teamwork is unprecedented. This allows for faster closing and a more streamlined approach to lending. A lot of what we do is educating the customer so that they can make an informed decision regarding their future. I have worked for a few large companies before starting with Fairway, and I can honestly say that no one works harder than we do. We truly care about the customer and that is very apparent when you talk to anyone who works here.”
Scott prides himself on integrity and will do what is best for the individual and not necessarily for himself. He is compassionate towards people as he is passionate about the loan industry and is dedicated to providing the best customer service available.
