Phyllis Cheong and Pattie Wainright-Hosti have joined Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, one of the nation’s largest mortgage banks, as senior loan officers serving the greater Savannah area and the entire state of Georgia. Based in Sun Prairie, Wis., Fairway is a full-service mortgage bank that provides a wide range of residential mortgage loans, including conventional financing, VA loans, FHA loans, reverse mortgages and more. The company was ranked the 11th largest mortgage bank in the nation by Origination News in 2011 and has exceeded $6 billion in loan volume in 2012, a 66 percent increase from the previous year.
Cheong and Wainright-Hosti have over 31 combined years of mortgage industry experience. Prior to joining Fairway Independent Mortgage, they worked together as loan officers for SunTrust Mortgage, Inc. in Savannah. Cheong and Wainright-Hosti have proven to be invaluable resources to local homebuyers and homeowners looking to buy or refinance a home.
“We’ve been fortunate to work with some of the best and brightest professionals in the mortgage industry. Cheong and Wainright-Hosti are no exceptions, as demonstrated by their accomplishments and dedication to serving homebuyers in the Savannah area,” said Steve Jacobson, CEO of Fairway Independent Mortgage. “We are thrilled to welcome them to the Fairway family and believe they will serve a valuable role in our company for years to come.”
“It is our great pleasure to join an amazing organization such as Fairway Independent Mortgage and be able to continue to help borrowers in Savannah with their home mortgage and refinancing needs,” said Cheong.
“When we decided to make a career change, we did a lot of homework to ensure we selected a mortgage bank with national strength that still allowed us to offer personal service,” continued Wainright-Hosti. “Fairway Independent Mortgage was the perfect fit.”
