    The Dan & Sherene Story….

    It’s a privilege to work; it’s a blessing to have a friend. And when you get to work with a friend, it’s a very rare honor indeed! Such has it been for us, now nearing 15 years of business partnership and friendship…

    Through these years, the challenges of the home lending landscape have been formidable… “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” as our friend Chuck Dickens might say. And yet, we remained United in Purpose and Passion and Persistence, striving to provide the best home loan experience on the Planet for our Clients and Partners (we will have to expand our team mission statement if they colonize and start to build homes on Mars!).

    We spent all but 3 months of our careers fiercely loyal to one manager, the same man who hired and trained us. Together, we followed him and relied on his business acumen to navigate the industry changes as we went from Broker à Banker à Hybrid, eventually spending the majority of our careers as direct lenders with Cherry Creek Mortgage Company in Roseville, CA.

    Though it was heart-wrenching decision to leave the company and the people of Cherry Creek Mortgage, we had yearnings… To take a risk, To step out of our comfort zone and grow both professionally and personally, To see what other models for lending excellence were out there, To find like-hearted people with new ideas and new strategies to serve, To boldly go where no man has gone before. Sorry wait, that last one is from Star Trek, please disregard.

    Although we made a very brief pit-stop with another company along the way, we finally found it all at Fairway Mortgage!

    We’re expanding our service area with offices in Rocklin and Folsom, making ourselves easily accessible to meet face-to-face with anyone in Placer, Sacramento, and El Dorado counties.

    We’re expanding our product offerings to feature Jumbo loan programs for Doctors and HERO loan programs for Teachers, Fire Fighters, Officers of the Law, Registered Nurses, and other noble professionals who serve our communities.

    We’re expanding our options for down payment assistance and First Time Buyer loan programs.
