About Jon Tobias
A graduate of the University of Arizona, Jon Tobias started his career in the mortgage industry working behind the scenes. Soon after, he moved on to a position as a Mortgage Originator, so that he could work closely with the Realtor and builder communities. He moved quickly up from there, becoming a manager for a successful builder’s mortgage branch. Over the years, Jon has become an expert in handling a high volume of loan transactions, but he also knows the importance of maintaining a high level of service as well. Coming to Fairway Independent Mortgage was a simple choice for Jon; The company is a Direct FannieMae/Freddie Mac/Ginnie seller has a wide product selection, excellent rates, and a reputation for closing loans quickly. This led him to create the Tobias Team, and now he is the top Originator in the branch, as well as ranked in the Top 100 in 2010 as well 2011, Top 50 in 2012, and Top 24 in 2013, per the Scotsman guide.

Scotsman GuideThe combined skills and over 30 years of experience that make up the Tobias Team has created a group that specializes in creative financing and originating approvable loans. This can be done through the strong base that Fairway Independent Mortgage provides, with in-house processing, underwriting, and funding, all available at their disposal. This creates the ability to close most government and conventional loans in less than three weeks. Because of that, and their commitment to customer service, the Tobias Team has thrived in an otherwise difficult housing market, and has closed loans for customers who were previously unsuccessful with their previous lender, or who weren’t offered acceptable rates. The Tobias Team makes it happen.

Ultimately, what makes this team special is their commitment to what really matters to their borrowers and referral partners: communication, integrity and timeliness. Their goal is to make every transaction as simple and clear for everyone involved, and to accomplish that, they are available seven days a week for their customer’s convenience. When it comes time to get that next loan, think about the team that has thrived when others have fallen, and who can get it done while keeping the customer happy. Give us a try, you’ll be glad you did…
