In Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, a local Fairway branch and the American Warrior Initiative (AWI) honored a veteran with a service dog. A residential housing “Boot Camp” was held in collaboration with the event to train real estate professionals and mortgage planners on how to handle the home purchase needs of active duty and military veterans with excellence.
The honoree at the event was David Roberts. Roberts is a local veteran suffering from PTSD. AWI and Fairway honored Roberts by giving him a service dog that will help him throughout his daily life. Mortgage Planner Brian Nichols was so excited to be part of this great event. He said:
“The AWI CE was such a great event. I love working for a company that continually serves the community and, specifically, our veterans. AWI showcases many ways Realtors, loan officers, and everyone in the home buying process can serve our veteran community, making the home buying process a smooth and memorable experience. It was very informative and gave insight on what needs we might be able to meet for our VA borrowers. I can’t wait for the next event.”
Founded by Louise Thaxton and Sean Parnell, the American Warrior Initiative is a non-profit organization, sponsored by Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, which seeks to ease the transition for U.S. veterans between military and civilian life.
I am proud to work for a company that does so much to honor those who sacrifice for our country. If I can help answer any questions about VA loans or any other home loan options, give me a call.
