Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation has announced the opening of its latest branch, d/b/a Seagate Financial, in Plano, Texas to be led by JC Mier. Fairway, with 106 locations nationwide, closed $3.94 billion in loan volume in 2010. The company was founded in 1996 by Steve Jacobson and Dean Anderson, and is headquartered in Sun Prairie, Wisc. with additional corporate offices around the country, including a large facility in Plano Texas. "JC and is a proven leader and a top-notch lender. Joining Fairway will help build his presence. We're extremely excited to have JC, and Seagate Financial as part of our team," said Jacobson, Fairway Independent Mortgage Company founder and chief executive officer. Fairway employs more than 1,000 employees nationwide, and its branches operate autonomously in their day-to-day operations, while still maintaining compliance and providing consistency to their customers. Fairway's corporate offices provide support in the areas of personnel, accounting and quality control. "The thing that impressed me the most about Fairway was their quickness to respond," said Mier. "It's all about their customers and their branches. Fairway's branch support is second to none. Fairway's team is the type of people you want to surround yourself with. My vision is to build and expand Seagate Financial just as the Fairway family has done. And just like Fairway, I am motivated by making a difference in people's lives."
