What People are Saying

I refer all of my clients exclusively to Marie

I have known Marie Bjornson for the past few years in my capacity as a real estate agent. I have referred many clients to her and vice-versa.
I have been in this business for over 30 years, and have never had a lender stand out as Marie has.
I mainly work with investor clients. I refer all of my clients exclusively to Marie, as I am so confident in her ability to come through. Marie always goes out of her way to think outside the box to help clients meet their financing needs, where they would not have otherwise been able to. She not only fits them into great loan programs and communicates well, but has gone over and above for clients in multiple ways. Marie analyzes the clients’ needs, and easily builds trust with them, in the capacity as a consultant. She recently started a landlord coaching niche for our current and past clients, that she brought me into. This has expanded both of our businesses.
I feel Marie’s motivation, integrity, and resourcefulness makes her successful at whatever she puts her mind to.

From a Realtor

Good Morning and Happy Sunday!
I wanted to share with you a story.
I had a client who had found a house they really wanted to buy and so we proceeded to put a offer in on the home, the client was pre-approved with a lender so everything look good and ready to go.
Now lets jump ahead client gets inspection, lender orders appraisal everything is done on everyone Else’s end except for the lender…
The client, myself and the listing agent put in several calls, text and emails and the lender still kept saying they are working on it.
One extension goes by, second extension goes by,  the lender asked client for some documents that they had sent her 6 times and had the documentation to prove it.
Now mind you this was not a short sale, not a foreclosure just a good old fashion resale (yeah we all appreciate those)  Lol so as you can imagine the seller is ready to pull out because they had been waiting patiently for two months trying to work with the buyer.
On top of this the lender was related to the client by marriage oh what a scenario this was becoming!
Finally I suggested to the seller to call Marie Bjornson of Fairway Mortgage who I work with on the all of my deals unless client has another lender but Marie was really about to wow me!
Seriously guys Marie got the docs and in a week and half from start to finish the client was signing closing docs!
I can’t express enough how on top of it this lady is!  She is very professional, is always readily available, keeps you updated on the status, her communication is excellent and to add to it one of the nicest persons I have worked with.
She is really at the head of the Mortgage game which we all know can be our clients worse enemies.
Even if you have a lender who you work with try her just once and you will really see the difference between her and others just a true diamond in the rough and just a real joy to work with.
