Scott was amazing in [helping] us buying our first home. We were on a tight deadline and he helped us get everything in order for closing in 30 days! He is the best in the business and I would work with him over and over again. He answered the phone late at night. Thank you Scott for everything!

Scott was a wonderful advisor for my husband and I when we were going through the home buying process. Scott was quick to respond to any questions we had and he really had our best interests in mind with the financial aspects of purchasing a home. I highly recommend working with Scott for any of your financial needs.

I lead a very busy life between work and home and I have very little working knowledge of home purchasing and financing. Based on this, I relied heavily on Scott for his expertise and his guidance. It proved to be very beneficial from an economic standpoint as well as a piece of mind during this entire process. Scott went way above and beyond as it relates to simply the financial aspects of my home purchase. In addition, he continues to be extremely helpful and responsive to any questions or issues that may arise still to this day. I definitely look at Scott as a huge resource for me as it relates to home purchasing and financing as opposed to someone who simply pushes a loan in front of me and asks for my signature. He is a huge asset for Fairway.

I work with Scott as a practicing Realtor and he always came through for my clients. When it was time for my wife and I to buy a new property, we turned to Scott. It was a transaction with a fair amount of complexity. Not only did Scott come through for us, but he made the whole process transparent and seem simple. I continue to refer clients to Scott.

Scott was very helpful and knowledgeable with the real estate market and financing our home purchase in the Madison, WI, area. He proactively helped us refinance several months after our closing to ensure our interest rate was the lowest it could be. We would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home or refinance their home in Dane county.

We have done both a mortgage and a refinance with Scott Harrod. He was extremely helpful – explained all the steps as we went through the process, easy to work with, quick and efficient. There were no glitches or surprises at the end. Best of all, he was able to offer us great rates! Both my husband and I would highly recommend Scott.

Scott was nothing shy of outstanding when we were looking to re-fi our Dane county home in May of 2011. But, when we really needed some help with financing our “Dream Lake Home” up North, we tried and tried to use the “local lenders” up by our lake home. No help at all. We called Scott and in 35 days –35 days! – we were closed and enjoying our new dream. Scott and his team of professionals really went [above] and beyond to help us in our hour of need!
– Jim C.


Scott did an outstanding job meeting my new home financing needs. He took the time to understand exactly what I was looking for, then found several options and clearly explained the merits of each. The best part was the interest rate and closing cost was the best of all the vendors I quoted. Scott was very responsive and professional throughout the entire process. He has earned my entire mortgage banking business going forward. 5-star service 100%.

This past winter/spring, my husband and I were in the middle of a fairly difficult transaction, which involved the sale of some land owned by our farm partnership. Since we lived on the main farm, we also had to search for and purchase a new home and move our household goods, farm equipment, tools and 30 years’ worth of miscellaneous items. It was a time of high emotions, mixed feelings, huge financial decisions. Decisions with timing complications. Decisions that were made difficult by other people’s actions that were out of our control. Decisions with lasting implications at every turn. We needed a lender who understood farm property and we were surprised to discover that wasn’t easy to find in the Madison area. Several places that we tried didn’t even want to talk to us once they knew our situation involved farm property. Our Realtor suggested that we contact Fairway and we were so glad he did. Scott Harrod was a HUGE help! He had options for us, he listened to our complicating factors, and offered solutions we had not thought of . . . and most importantly he was accessible to us! (And not always at the most convenient times.) Scott was a trusted partner in this transaction. He is the kind of employee that establishes very loyal customers for Fairway. You will be so glad to work with him that you will recommend him to others. I already have recommended him to a friend and they closed a loan with him also.

We had a somewhat complicated situation closing a refinance for a land contract. Scott calmly and thoroughly took care of us and secured our mortgage at a great rate. He and his team were easily available all the time to answer our seemingly endless array of questions. Scott would communicate next steps with us regularly and provide updates about where our mortgage was in the process. We felt like Scott was part of the family after our dealings with him. He and his team are friendly and professional at all times. We cannot say enough great things about him and the service he provides. Scott is the only mortgage person I will work with now or refer others too. Fantastic!

[I’ve had] several mortgages over the years on both owner-occupied as well as income properties. We were always treated very fairly and honestly. The requirements are stated clearly up front and he goes through everything with you so you have a good understanding of what is going on and why. There were never any surprises, everything has been as stated included very minimal or in some cases no closing costs. You can’t go wrong with Scott!

We first worked with Scott Harrod while buying a new house in Sun Prairie three years ago. We ended up moving two years later to Verona and did not hesitate to work with him again. We had some difficulties during our second move due to a problem finishing our taxes. We were concerned this would delay getting our loan and that we’d lose out on our house. Scott helped work through these issues and everything worked out well in in the end. He also accompanied us to our closing and was available to answer all of our questions.
