It’s a Five Star kind of year for a handful mortgage originators with Fairway of the Carolinas. We’re pleased to announce that Fairway of the Carolinas loan officers Jane Estes, Blair Crews, Lisa Marie Shapiro, Kim Venable and Karen Moravus are recipients of the Five Star Award for 2021. This honor recognizes outstanding professionals in the mortgage, real estate and home/auto insurance industries. Market research consultant Five Star Professional identifies candidates for the Five Star Mortgage Professional award through evaluations submitted by homebuyers and real estate agents. 

To receive the award, a mortgage professional must satisfy five objective eligibility criteria centered around providing quality services. Five Star Professional asks recent homebuyers to evaluate mortgage professionals with whom they have worked based on these five criteria. The market research consultant also asks real estate agents as well as escrow and title professionals to submit an evaluation. 

Five Star Professional conducts the award process annually in each market. To be designated a Five Star Mortgage Professional, a mortgage originator must first meet their state’s licensing requirement and be in good standing. The final list of Five Star Mortgage Professionals includes less than 7% of the mortgage professionals in a market.

Here’s what some of our Five Star Award winners said about being part of such an elite club:

Kim Venable

“WOW. I am beyond grateful! THANK YOU to all of our clients, referral partners, Realtors, friends and family for voting for us again this year! This will be the ninth year in a row, and we appreciate you so much. Thank you for allowing our team to serve you and your family with excellence each step of the way.”

Blair Crews

“This is my first time receiving this award, and I am so honored. Knowing this award is based on feedback from all parties I have worked with really means a lot to me. I truly love what I do, and receiving this award just makes me want to work even harder.”

Karen Moravus

“This is my first time being recognized for this award. It’s such an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to help make dreams happen, especially when so many consumers feel like they have no options. What we do is so much bigger than just mortgages. It can be life-changing for people, and it’s our jobs to make it as easy and stress-free as possible during a very overwhelming period in their lives.

“I’m just so grateful that I get to share in this journey with my clients, and I work hard to ensure that my TEAM gives them the best experience we can. This recognition is the perfect acknowledgement that my customers know that I’m working hard for them. It’s so exciting!”
