Diane Lestor and her team were such a pleasure to work with – they made my wife and I feel so comfortable with the process and walked with us every step of the way. Being first-time homebuyers, there were a lot of unknowns. Diane calmly answered all of our questions, responded to our late-night texts, and even got back to us on her vacation. She had our back the whole time, which gave us so much peace of mind. I would personally recommend Diane and her team to anyone and cannot give her enough praise for helping us get our first home.

Diane was extremely helpful through the ENTIRE process of buying our new home. She went above and beyond just providing us with a great mortgage! She was there to answer all our questions and was extremely quick to answer them. There were times I called asking if I could be doing something because they made the process so easy for us it was effortless on our part! Buying a home is stressful, but with Diane Lestor on your side, you can sit back and enjoy the life transition without a worry!

Fairway went above and beyond to help me get the house of my dreams. I could never thank them enough for all the hard work they put in. The entire team was always available, even late hours, to answer my questions and help me every step of the way. Even when I didn’t think it was going to happen they were so encouraging and made the process that much less stressful for me. Thank you again Diane, Rita, and everyone at Fairway!!!

I had so many hiccups on the buyers end of the closing of my house. Diane and Rita from Fairway Mortgage helped on the purchase of my new house, but also went above and beyond with helping on issues we had on the sale of our home. I would recommend Fairway Mortgage to everybody!
