Mitch Sargent

Mitch was born and raised in Sandy Utah!  Mitch’s father has been in the mortgage lending industry for thirty years and introduced him to the business.  Before joining Fairway and working with The Sharla Ellis Dream Team, Mitch owned and operated an award-winning mobile car detailing business.  We are so grateful to have Mitch on our Team!  He is personable and caring and loves working with borrowers and helping them realize their dreams of homeownership.

Mitch loves to fly fish, hunt, camp, work out and being around his family.  His “grilling” and “meat- smoking” skills come in handy for this!  Important parts of his family are two dogs - a chocolate lab named Brewsky and a mixed mutt named Pennie.  Speaking of family, Mike very recently became engaged to Ms. Alyssa George!  Mitch met his bride-to-be while fly fishing and was brave enough to approach her.  Wedding date is “TBD” thanks to COVID-19!
