Derek Tubbs

Derek Tubbs has been in the mortgage business for 7 years and 10 total years in finance with 3 of those years along Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp. Lending is in Derek’s blood, his father has been in the mortgage business on the underwriting side as a National Underwriting Manager for multiple large-named companies. He has written and implemented a lot of the policies, guidelines and metrics that we still use in today’s underwriting world.

In 2012 and 2013, Derek personally funded over $64 Million Dollars in mortgages. Of these loans, 90% of them were turned down by other loan officers and lenders because the loan was deemed “too hard to work or structure”. By the age of 31, Derek funded over $150 Million Dollars in business alone, something his father is very proud of.

2016 shaped up to be a very successful year funding 151 loans for just under $32 Million Dollars in volume and found himself to be ranked in the top 1% of producing loan officers nationally out of any Mortgage Company. This year, Derek has already surpassed those milestones and plans to finish 2017 very strong with a record year in closings.

Derek loves a challenge and was born to do this work. He prides himself on his knowledge of the mortgage industry and constantly educating himself with new and updated guidelines to apply towards real life situations in the ever-changing mortgage world.
