I graduated from Temple University and began my mortgage career in Atlanta, Georgia at the pinnacle of that city's growth.  I've lived in Asheville for almost 12 years and I've loved every minute of it!

I have been an originator for close to 20 years now, and what really amazes me is the number of home buyers who do not know about the smart use of money and the tax advantages not maximized in the Real Estate negotiation process. This knowledge must be imparted prior to the negotiation of the contract–not as an afterthought!

This enlightenment resulted in the development of my 'Smart Money Mortgage' whereby we 'profile' the client in advance of the contract negotiations and work with their agent to help negotiate the best use of their current asset base and financial assets –whatever they may be.

As the Branch Manager at Fairway Independent Mortgage here in Asheville, my personal motto is simply, "100% of the Truth, 100% of the time".   Fairway has funded billions of dollars in home loans across the United States, but I know that the only thing that really matters is what I can do for YOU!

Closed purchase loan. Marshall, NC

As I wrap up an exciting day during which I closed on a home that puts me one step closer to fulfilling some of my long-held dreams, I realize how fortunate I have been to have David Kanis, of Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation on my side.

I recently moved from California, and as a self-employed person moving across the country, it can be difficult to secure funding for a mortgage. But David 's obvious expertise and knowledge gave me confidence right away that he would provide a solution. And he did.

David was always on top of the details, way ahead of me in the process and was respectful of my time and my goals. (His memory is phenomenal!) This home purchase experience was such a smooth one, that I can only hope that others take advantage of his guidance and experience.

We had to work quickly and efficiently on investment property. David and his entire team cared for our loan as much as we did. Everything went smoothly and we closed exactly when WE wanted to. I cannot thank them enough for their great service.

David and his team made the financing process easy and stress free. I was updated every step of the way which gave me piece of mind. I'm generally leary about recommending professional services to friends and coworkers, but feel confident with Fairway!
