Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation – Indiana is now headquartered in Fishers

Fishers is now home to Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation. This full-service mortgage banker is consolidating its operations from three previous Indiana hubs into a new, state-of-the-art building at 8911 Technology Drive.

Founded in 1996, Fairway provides mortgage financing for individuals and families buying or refinancing their homes. Over the last several years, Fairway Indiana has experienced exponential growth. Three main hubs sprung up throughout Indianapolis and Fishers to accommodate the growing number of employees, with 15 other satellite locations throughout the state.

“We had discussed the possibility of combining the offices, but wanted and needed to find a space that could fit us all and have room for our planned continued growth,” says Senior Vice President and Area Manager Eric McMillan. “Timing was also important, and the location made sense. We wanted a space big enough so any teammate could work out of the same space whenever they wanted. Our leases also all were up within four months of each other. We were very fortunate when our developer, Shelby Bowen, president of REBAR Development, presented us with the location in downtown Fishers. Throughout the process, we knew that we had found our home.”

Breaking ground in April 2022, Fairway Indiana moved into its new space in December 2023. Senior Vice President and Area Manager Barry Lux says the choice of Fishers as the location for their Indiana headquarters was not just for its vibrant downtown Nickel Plate District and business-friendly administration, but was also a testament to Fairway’s unwavering commitment to supporting the local community, government and businesses.

“Our central employees are thrilled to call Fishers home, and there is no better place to work than downtown Fishers,” Lux says. “We are incredibly excited to be located on the Nickel Plate Trail, which will provide excellent exposure for Fairway. Moreover, it will give our employees access to one of the public gems on the north side. The trail and all the amenities close by offer an excellent workplace opportunity that Fairway employees will cherish for many years to come.”

The building, spanning almost 15,000 square feet, is a testament to the company’s commitment to community and collaboration. It features a garage door that opens to the trail, multiple conference rooms, traditional-style offices, numerous co-working spaces, a kitchen area, a reception area, and outdoor greens for employees to gather. The first floor boasts accordion-style glass panels, allowing extra room and the option to section off space.

The designers, mindful of current workplace trends, have incorporated co-working spaces for a collaborative work environment. Jeffrey Arthur, vice president of sales, shares that the building was designed with its proximity to the Nickel Plate Trail in mind.

“It’s my understanding that our building was designed to interact with the trail itself,” Arthur says. “All four sides of our building were designed to be viewed. The garage door opens to the trail. We will also have an art piece that will grace the side of the building. Local artist Luke Crawley designed the art piece. If the city sees fit, they can change the artwork periodically to showcase other local artists.”

Fairway held a grand-opening ceremony for the new building in April, with Mayor Scott Fadness in attendance for the ribbon cutting. The event was open to the community, with food trucks, giveaways, and fun for Fishers residents and Fairway employees. Senior Vice President and Area Manager Austin Larr says the event celebrated many years of planning to build the new location.

“We worked closely with the mayor’s office to make the space and the grand-opening ceremony happen,” Larr says. “We’re so grateful and thankful to have around 200 of our employees, friends and community members attend our grand-opening celebration. We’re so happy to finally be in the new building and working together to produce positive outcomes for our clients.”

Fairway prides itself on having a heart for serving others. Fairway has two not-for-profit organizations: Fairway Cares and American Warrior Initiative (AWI). The Fairway Cares mission is to send hope, courage, strength and love to teammates, clients and family through care packages. The goal is to support individuals and families battling critical illness, physical trauma or the loss of a loved one.

AWI was created in 2012, and its mission is to educate and inspire the real estate industry on how to be equipped to handle the home purchasing needs of active-duty and former military clients. There are different give-back initiatives at AWI, including providing veterans in need with service dogs. Fairway has placed over 330 service dogs in the lives and hearts of our veterans and their families.
