First time buyer, the team instilled trust from day one.

Timothy and his team were nothing short of phenomenal to work with. As someone who is self-employed, there are many more obstacles to landing a mortgage than someone on a traditional W2 — this is something we learned out of the gate.
They responded on a Saturday and had us a full pre-approval written up and ready to go with our offer by Sunday. His team was particularly helpful in working through the final documentation requests, etc. during the escrow and closing process with the underwriter. Everything went off without a hitch. They took the incredibly stressful experience and buying a home and made it manageable, answered every question we had thoroughly, and helped teach us a great deal about buying a home along the way.
I would recommend Timothy and his team to anyone looking for a painless experience in buying their home, whether it is the first time or the tenth time. Don't look anywhere else.

1st Time Homebuyer's Experience

This was my first time buying a home and it came at a time of incredible market competition. I had been pre-approved elsewhere but they wouldn't even give me my pre-approval in writing. The Potempa team was rather persistent with continuing contact with me which I found to be standard with mortgage lenders. That being said, in the end I was thankful for their desire to earn my business. The team was easy to work with and was very helpful. I had to have adjustments made to my pre-approval letter at least 4 times probably more, and I always received them timely, allowing me to make competitive offers. Every closed on time perfectly and the product offerings were positive as they allowed me to still secure my home despite not having 20% down. Overall, couldn't have asked for more from this lender. Thank you for everything!

Best experience for First Time Homebuyers

Both my husband and I are truly fortunate to have come across the Potempa Team! The entire process & experience was EVERYTHING we needed and we’re looking for. As first time home buyers, we had 21 questions that were ALWAYS answered above & beyond, day or night, text messages, emails or phone calls. Literally a hand to hold onto and walk us through the entire process step-by-step! Highly recommended and would absolutely work with again & again! Thank you Team Potempa, we are very happy to have had your help purchasing our 1st home!

Trusted partner providing guidance and expertise in closing!

I want to thank the entire Fairway Team in helping me find the resources to secure a new home in one of the most competitive markets in the country! Tim Potempa as a leader, and his loan officer Jim Stephens were continuously engaged, supportive and provided guidance during my search for over a year! Not only did they provide pre-qualifying letters, they used this process as an incremental step to understand me so that they could advocate on my behalf, and simplify the closing process. Through a few attempts of the bidding process, both Tim and Jim were very responsive 24x7 in helping customizing offers, and communicating directly to selling agents to secure trust and ensure a high level of confidence for the sellers to select my bid. I feel very fortunate to have the Fairway team as a trusted partner!
