About Olan Carder
Olan takes each referral as a sacred trust. If you are looking to buy a home or refinance, you need honest answers and experience you can count on to get your loan closed on time and under budget. Olan has that knowledge and expertise, and he is committed to being responsive, honest and helpful throughout the process. He loves to educate his clients about the best mortgage products for their needs and how the mortgage can be more the just a loan. Thoughtful planning can transform the mortgage into a tool to help a client achieve their short and long term financial goals!
Olan and his wife are both Charlotte natives. They have 2 wonderful children and most of their family live in North or South Carolina. There is nowhere Olan would rather be than the NC Mountains. When he is not working on mortgages you will probably find him on the golf course or cheering on his favorite college basketball team, the UNC Tarheels!

Olan has a very unique story. He graduated from high school a year early and went to Bible college with a hope to serve at his church. Olan worked at his church in youth ministry and missions for several years before and during his first years in the mortgage industry. When a highly successful loan officer asked Olan if he wanted to give mortgages a try, he jumped on the opportunity and the rest is history! He has now been working in the industry for over 15 years. Most people are surprised at Olan’s passion for what he does… to him, assisting people with their home financing is FUN!

I had tried for four months to secure a closing using a different mortgage company and had problems after problems. Nothing moved fast no matter how important the issue was. I was very close to losing the house my wife and I wanted to buy because of the length of time being taken to get to closing. Eventually I decided to call Olan Carder at Fairway and it was the best decision I could have made. Within a week I had a clear to close and the entire time Olan and his assistant kept me informed of everything that was going on. I never had to search them out to find out where we were, they either called or emailed me to let me know exactly where we were in the process and what they needed from me to make things move more smoothly. I could not appreciate them more. I would not own the home I wanted if it were not for Fairway Mortgage.
Alisha and I spent the weekend moving in to our new house and trying to get settled…
…I wanted to take a break before I take off for Egypt to that you all for all of your hard work and dedication. As a Soldier, it is a very satisfying feeling to have a place to call ‘home’ and each one of you were integral in making that possible. You were a pleasure to work with and made Alisha and I feel like you had our best interest at heart. Thank you.
