Shane Kidwell is a full-time branch manager and mortgage advisor for Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation who loves to help people. He graduated from the University of Washington and continues to make the Seattle area his home with his beautiful wife and dog Lola.
Prior to getting into lending, Shane was a full-time fireman working at the busiest station on the West Coast. You will quickly find out that his life as a fireman bleeds into everything he does. From open, direct communication to proactively preparing his clients for success, it’s a part of who Shane is. He prefers to work really fast!
He will never turn down a good cup of coffee and loves educating people on wise long-term financial decisions. Shane believes that making it right and being honest (at all times) is better than making an extra dollar.
