"I have worked with several lenders during my nine years in the real estate business.  None have been more professional and have thought "outside of the box" more to earn my and my clients trust and business than Ashley McKenzie-Sharpe. I call her "The Magic Woman" because she is relentless in searching for ways to help the client realize their dream of owning a home.  Where she excels above other lenders is in her customer service and communication skills.  And it is very comforting that Fairway always closes their loans on time.  Selfishly, I use Ashley because Ashley makes me look good!"  

I moved to North Carolina from New York three years ago and rented. I wanted to get to know the area before purchasing a home. My Realtor, Kevin Miner came off a referral from a relative in New York. Kevin then referred me to Ashley Mackenzie-Sharp with Fairway Mortgage. I was extremely skeptical and refused to talk to her. I went to a different financial institution which was the worst mistake of my life – You can’t fix stupid.

Reluctantly I took Kevin’s advice and called Ashley. I have a real estate background. My current profession includes mortgage fraud (I come in contact with a lot of people over a multitude of states doing my job that lie to me on a regular basis); but I never told Ashley or Kevin (until the closing) b/c I wanted to see how professional, honest and knowledgeable they were.

The first time I met with Ashley Mackenzie-Sharpe the first thing I noticed was her bubbly attitude and she had eyes that bedazzled (I believe eyes are the window to the soul). She also had an honesty that shined straight from her core; and at that point I knew whether I sat in person with her or communicated in other forms that I was in good hands.

Buying a home is probably the most valuable and expensive purchase any one of us will ever make in our lifetime. Ashley is very knowledgeable in her profession and very genuine. She kept me updated every step of the way. My attitude could make a Priest want to be committed yet she dealt with me in the most professional manner. She dealt with my warped sense of humor, my anal retentive attitude and my skepticism always with a warmth that comes from a person who does their job because they like what they do and are good at what they do.

I know Ashley went out of her way to make sure my home buying experience was stress-free. Being a great Loan Officer is awesome in of itself but there has to be a connection beyond that and I would refer anyone to her. I don’t sugar coat so if you want a great buying experience there is not better people to choose then Ashley Mackenzie-Sharpe with Fairway Mortgage and Kevin Miner with ReMax.

Dear Ashley

Definitely I will recommend you guys.

“As a first time home buyer I was completely clueless, scared, and excited. This is considered to be one of the most stressful things you will go through in life and it was nice to have people who understood and could walk you through the process with ease. Everything Ashley (Sr. Loan Officer) and Jennifer (Assistant) said would happen, happened. They were both there from start to finish answering any of my questions, and calming my anxiety as a first time buyer in a timely manner.  They exceeded all expectations and I truly appreciated their positive energy and upbeat spirits.

Have a Great Day!!!!”

“Everyone at Fairway Mortgage was very friendly and accommodating. I spent right at one year trying to find and purchase my first home. I am pretty sure everything that could go wrong when purchasing a home happened to me; hence the reason it took me a year. However, with that being said, I was very fortunate to have Ashley and Jennifer helping me along the way. They were very knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the process. They were always keeping me motivated and reminding me it would all be worth it in the end. I would definitely recommend Ashley and Jennifer from Fairway Mortgage to anyone interested in buying a home.

            Thanks again to everyone at Fairway for not giving up on me!

                        Kristina – 23 years old, and a happy homeowner !!!!”


“Dear Fairway Mortgage Team (Ashley McKenzie-Sharpe, Jennifer Kaydas),

           I’d like to take this brief opportunity to thank you both for taking  a personal, as well as professional interest in assisting me with my recent loan.  Throughout your professional guidance and communication, (whether it was via e-mails, telephone calls, or step by step instructions on how to fill out paperwork). You both successfully made everything possible for me to acquire my recent purchase (A Townhouse).  For that, I say….”Thank You” and “May God continue to bless the both of you”…………….Greg Milton”


“I want to thank you for your help.  I had only weeks to find out definitive answers to getting loans for two houses.   With the stress of relocating and not knowingwhere I was going to be next you all were able to expedite the process through a myriad of obstacles that face the banking industry today and frustrate all involved.  I know that this was only possible as you were quick to answer calls and to inform me of what we needed next - late in the evening and early in the morning when most people were getting ready for their next day or relaxing.  If the rest of the country had this work ethic there would notbe an economical crisis!  I hope that your personal touch, attention to details and hard work pays off- It most certainly did for me!

“My wife and I first met Ashley McKenzie-Sharpe a few years ago when we refinanced our home.  We were impressed with how professional and how personable she was. 

Now that we are in the process of purchasing a new home, there was no question that we would ask for Ashley's assistance once again.

Again, we are thrilled with Ashley, Jennifer, and the entire team!  We feel that they have been so good to us, going above and beyond the call of duty.

They have made what could have been a difficult process, simple and easy to understand.  They are quick to respond to any questions that we have had during this process.

We highly recommend Fairway Mortgage!
Jerry and Sharon Myers”
