Louise Thaxton (NMLS 6996) is a producing branch manager for Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation (NMLS 2289), with satellite offices across Louisiana and Florida. She has been in the mortgage business for 16 years, 13 of those years with Fairway, where she has ranked #1 for units closed for the last four years. She has been a keynote speaker at several industry events, is an avid blogger and a regular contributor to industry publications. She serves as co-Chairman of the Military Affairs Committee of Vernon Parish, Louisiana, and is actively involved in active duty and veteran’s affairs in the communities in which she serves.
Louise is the National Director of the Military Mortgage Specialist within Fairway, a designation which she created and administers. The objective of this designation is to provide a platform whereby loan professionals can be thoroughly trained, equipped and certified to handle with excellence the mortgage loan needs of active duty and former military clients.
For the last several years, Louise has ranked nationally within the top 15 loan officers for VA loans in the group of Top Originators for Scotsman Guide. Because the majority of her clients are military clients, Louise and her team have developed a passion for “Serving Those Who Serve.” But not just with their mortgage needs. Each quarter, they send care packages to their clients or their families in Iraq and Afghanistan and have helped with several wounded warrior projects.
She has made it her mission to educate and inform the mortgage industry, the real estate industry and the public of the potential financial harm which can come to military clients who are a targeted group of individuals. There are individuals and companies armed with predatory financial practices, utilizing aggressive marketing tactics, who target servicemen and women as they return from war. Louise calls these predators “Wolves” and she has vowed to not only stand as a watchdog between the warriors and the wolves, but also to encourage others to do the same.
She is an Ambassador of the “Boot Campaign” a grass roots movement to give back to wounded warriors when they come home.
Louise has also co-authored a book with Stephen Covey and Patricia Fripp, “Success Simplified” and is currently working on her next book, “Battle for the Land of Purple”.
