Fairway is a full-service mortgage lender, headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin and Carrollton, Texas, employing nearly 10,000 people and operating more than 500 branches nationwide.

The company has 27 offices in the Atlanta metro area, employing 266 people. It funded more than $71 billion in home loans in 2021, a record for an organization that has said it aspires to soon become one of the nation’s largest mortgage lenders.

Company executives say Fairway’s focus, from CEO Jacobson to descendants, is faith, family and work, in that order.

“It’s not about the loans we give; it’s about the hearts we change and the people we help,” said Jacobson, who founded the company 26 years ago. “We aim to provide great customer service, promptness and support by being kind, humble and giving 100% every day.”

The company has set up its own charity, Fairway Cares, which provides care packages and assistance to people who have lost a loved one, faced serious illness or suffered physical trauma. A second charity created by its employees, the American Warrior Initiative, provided financial assistance and 101 service dogs to injured veterans in 2021.

Atlanta’s oldest private residential real estate company lives by a motto that reads in part, “We won’t sacrifice reputation for growth.” We will not sacrifice quality for quantity. We do what it takes.

The company, which has 278 employees in the metro and locations in Buckhead, Intown and East Cobb, had revenue of $1.4 billion in the latest available year.

Its motto aligns with what Patrick Wood, Senior Vice President and Chief Broker, said he believes sets Dorsey Alston apart from other local real estate companies.

“Dorsey Alston’s goal is not about growth or the bottom line. It’s about, and always has been, about providing the best possible life for our agents and staff,” Wood said.

Each member of the team has a different definition of success, and “we spend a lot of time listening to them to find out their definition,” he said. “Then we do everything we can to help them achieve that success. We believe that the growth and success of our business is a direct result of the happiness and success of our agents and staff.

Since the start of the pandemic, the company has been able to resume weekly in-person sales meetings and training classes while offering its virtual “shelter in place” option.

Wood said the virtual option has increased attendance and participation, and is expected to continue.

“However, the biggest effect, as we recover from the pandemic together, is a renewed appreciation of how much we love and appreciate each other,” he said. “We are even more grateful for the special people and culture of Dorsey Alston.”

The company was the first real estate company in the market to offer a health insurance option to its agents, all of whom are independent contractors.

Since opening its first clinic in Farmington Hills, Michigan in 2001, Team Rehabilitation Services has expanded in its home state and added clinics in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and La Georgia.

The clinics, which offer physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy services, made $144 million in revenue in the last year for which figures were available.

The company employs 1,600 therapists and staff nationwide, including 153 in Georgia. But, according to physical therapist and CEO Scott Delcomyn, what sets the organization apart is how it works.

“Each of our clinics is independently owned and operated, which allows for a small-business, family-like atmosphere, despite the size of our overall organization,” Delcomyn said.

Although some administrative staff have moved to a mix of working from home and in the office.

But because the company is a medical care provider, most staff still come to its clinics “to provide high-quality care for our patients,” Delcomyn said. “We continue to wear masks in our clinics and do our best to provide a safe and healthy place for our patients to get better.”

Delcomyn said the company has worked hard to keep employees informed of the latest information on COVID-19 and access to vaccines, and has made counselors and free access to mental health care available, Delcomyn said.
