David Haley is the best in the business! David and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with! David is one of the rare few who will take the time to explain every loan option to you. He looks out for you not only in the present, but how the loan will work for you in the future and showed us things that no other broker did!!

David’s expertise saved us money, he was watching the market closely and had us lock our rate earlier than we initially planned. The next day the rates went up! David and his team always responded to us and our agents with great speed and professionalism. If your looking for someone who will always have your back, then David Haley is your man!!!

David and his team are very easy to work with, and are very responsive to emails and phone calls. This is the second time we’ve worked with him, the first for our mortgage and the second for a refinance. I appreciated their consistent follow up and follow through, the whole staff is very friendly, and David is always willing to take the time to explain things when you have questions. They made the process as easy as possible. (As seen on Zillow)

David and his staff are the most professional and diligent group that I have had the privilege of doing business with. David thoroughly explained our loan options [other mortgage people didn’t] so we could pick what would work best for us financial. David also watched the market very carefully and locked our rate just before the rates went up!!

If you want a true professional in your corner, David is your man!!!

The process of attaining a home mortgage can be onerous at best, David Haley helped guide us through the rules and regulations to a satisfactory outcome. He was responsive to our needs and when we had concerns, David addressed them immediately resulting in a fuller appreciation of their process than I would have and a better overall experience than if it had been smooth sailing all the way.

David and his team’s response to our concerns made all the difference; good people on a good team all about customer service and experience. I appreciate that he went the extra mile to meet our tight deadline.

David Haley is one of the hardest working men I know. He is always available 7 days a week and any hour of the day and has the patience of a Saint. He is thorough answering on all questions asked and makes sure you understand everything we have talked about. His assistant Jan is also amazing. She has always gotten back to every phone message or email we sent. The efficiency and closing of our loan was immediate and my husband and I couldn’t be more pleased.

I have known Dave for many years not only as a friend but also as my mortgage broker. You and your team have always gone above and beyond our expectations and it is clearly seen how much you love what you do. I have and will continue to recommend Mr. Haley and his team every time I know of a friend or relative who needs any help in regards to purchasing or refinancing a home. I can’t thank you enough Dave for ALL you have done for us! You clearly are the best as a friend and broker. Thank You Dave, Jan and Fairway Mortgage!!
