Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Customer Relations! I have had several loans with Fairwinds, and this latest experience was extraordinary. I was treated as if they truly cared about helping me to secure a loan from beginning to the end.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value but did your researc I've had good experiences with Fairwinds. My last loan experience was pretty good but, as a newbie to that particular type of loan, I found their education of the process lackluster. Yes, you should do your own research, but I had to do additional research and ask for a different product as I felt they were focused on giving me something that they wanted as opposed to what better suited my needs. Once I clarified and asked in specific terms for what I wanted, they were great at changing course. Final takeaway, do your research and know the products before you apply.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best deal in town Fairwinds was a pleasure to deal with for my home equity line of credit. They were methodical and straightforward. Fairwinds offered a better rate a better options then the four other banking establishments I inquired with. I like them so much I left my old bank and moved everything over to Fairwinds. Thanks guys
