About me

Jay Byars

Principled. Consistent. Skilled.

The mortgage market has seen some pretty tumultuous times over the last few years. High rates of foreclosures, bank failures, corporate bailouts, choking government regulations... all of these have combined to sort out the strong from the weak in mortgage advisors. What these events have also done is to place enormous pressure on borrowers to have every i dotted and t crossed in their applications, financial documents, and any credit history. It has placed a burden on many that seems overwhelming at times. That is where the value of working with a strong advisor and team really pays dividends for our borrowers. 

Over the last 11 years, I have built an office that is grounded on one key trait: character. Everything else we do is driven by this. We believe in service, value, integrity, vision, and competence. I have seen many who have come and gone over the years, many who are more concerned about making money over building a relationship. That is not my philosophy. We value our clients. They are our friends and we want to continue to earn their business by treating them as family. 

Speaking of family, I am blessed to have a great one. Amber and my girls Katie Jo and Georgia keep me busy and motivated. They have been an integral part of my life and bring me much joy. When I deal with a client, I always think how I would want people to treat my family in the same situation and work accordingly.

I have been the owner/manager of Good Faith Mortgage since 2001 in Charleston. We are very excited to have teamed up with ResMac, Inc. to be able to offer our clients the best of both worlds that is afforded by having more resources for our clients yet staying small and flexible to keep our personal touch. I am also fortunate enough to be elected to Dorchester County Council and enjoy serving the public good in this role to help make our community a better place. 

My team of professionals are some of the most respected around. Give us a chance to earn your business and I am sure you will agree. We take each client's needs to heart and work to find the best solution for you. So if you want to deal with a straight-talker, and avoid the pitfalls of a fast-talker, give us a call. You will be glad you did. 

I look forward to working with you very soon.
