Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Easy HELOC process Decided to look into a HELOC for a source of funds to upgrade my investment home. Glad I did with Fairwinds. The process was fast, easy, affordable and I had my credit line ready to go in a matter of weeks. Same great service as with my first mortgage, CD's and other accounts with Fairwinds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Team! The Home Equity Loan team was very easy to work with and super friendly and customer focused. We had a a complication during the process. Our processor was accommodating and helped us resolve behind the scenes. We were appreciative of not making a big deal out of a required change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fairly painless. Simple process. Most of the paperwork was done online. Did have to go in for closing. Was surprised by the score they used did not match the standard FICO score. Appreciate the online paperwork very much.
