Gary Balch Jr., Production Partner
Gary Balch and Jason Lawrence with Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation look forward to helping you with your next home purchase! Gary is based in Louisville, Kentucky where he has been in the finance industry since 2014, after graduating from the University of Kentucky with a degree in Mathematical Economics. Gary has lived in Louisville for most of his life, acquiring useful knowledge in the preapproval process and helping his clients find their dream home.
Following a few years with Chase Bank, Gary decided to join Jason Lawrence’s team with Fairway after enjoying such a wonderful experience with his first home purchase. Gary's experience has helped shape his focus on the borrower — anticipating their questions, needs and concerns. Service and customer experience will always be Gary's primary concern when helping customers navigate the uneasy (and often unknown) waters of purchasing a new home!
Even with over $21 billion in funded volume and finishing fifth in retail purchase volume for 2017, Fairway gives the mortgage experience a hometown feel — much different than the feeling of being just a number with the big banks. Fairway is a nationally recognized company, but you have probably never seen an advertisement from Fairway. With Fairway's business model, no advertisements are necessary! Fairway focuses on taking care of Realtors and clients so carefully that they want to continue recommending Fairway for mortgage needs. Maintaining a referral-based business means that with every application Fairway takes, the company hopes to provide you with such optimal service that you want to share about your experience with your family and friends.
When Gary is not helping clients, he will be found with his wife, Melissa, and their sweet daughter. Together, Gary and Melissa own a wedding photography business that gives Gary a fun, creative outlet. He's also involved with Fellowship Church of Louisville, which is their second family.
