Fairway to host ‘Military Mortgage Boot Camps’ nationwide

by Ryan Smith22 Apr 2014
Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation is launching a “Military Mortgage Boot Camp” tour to train housing professionals to better serve the financing needs of veterans.

The tour kicks off today in Grapevine, Texas. The company will conduct Military Mortgage Specialist training for mortgage professionals and Certified Military Residential Specialist training for real estate agents. Attendees will learn about Veterans Administration mortgage programs and receive training that will give them the skills to help active-duty service members and veterans obtain home financing.

“There remains a tremendous need in our industry for real solutions to the housing challenges our military men and women face," said Louise Thaxton, director of Fairway’s Military Mortgage Division. “Time and time again, we’re learning that education is key. Our veterans face unique hurdles to homeownership, and we know the training we provide helps housing professionals become better equipped to help our military heroes.”

At the Grapevine event, Fairway will also present the keys to a mortgage-free home to Army Sgt. James E. Saylor, a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan and a Purple Heart recipient.

“Sergeant Saylor is a true American hero,” Thaxton said. “Fairway is thankful to him and all military veterans who have served our country.”
