Bryan and his team were amazing to work with. As a real estate professional you need a good lender behind every transaction and that is what I have found working with Bryan and his team! They send out LSU's every Tuesday to keep everyone current on where the loan process stands in the transaction. They were always there to answer the phone and everyone on the team is extremely knowledgeable about the process. They are easy to get a hold of, willing to pick up the phone on the weekends, and are extremely organized. I HIGHLY recommend Bryan and his team at Academy Mortgage for any of your mortgage needs! You will NOT be disappointed!

Great job Bryan and The Canar Group on a great transaction!!!

—Bernadette Pineda

— Anna Carl - Realtor

Bryan Canar and Henry Maya came as a recommendation after already having someone else in mind, and for very good reasons. Not only were all my questions answered immediately, Bryan helped me with all the questions I didn't ask. Many options were laid out, and this process was a lot easier than in previous purchases. If asked that I would recommend him, I would simply say, I already have!

—Michael J. Moore

Bryan Canar, Henry Maya, and Zach Nelson did a phenomenal job on this file, as always! They are my go-to team and Academy is my preferred lender all the way! Thank you for all your hard work closing this transaction smoothly and efficiently... right on time! You guys ROCK!! Keep up the great work!!!

—Katie Canar

Bryan is very clear and precise. Follow through is excellent and he always meets or exceeds my expectations. My client was very disappointed when they had to cancel their contract on a home because their lender declined them a couple of days before closing. Bryan took over the file and determined that they would never have been approved. He worked with them over the next two months and got their credit score up. Now they have closed on an even better home.

—Louisa Ward - Realtor

All things better then loan officers hands down... Great with clients, updates, professional, on time, class act all the way around, good rates and great communication with all parties... Great asset to Academy Mortgage and to my business. Bryan and the Canar Team are excellent and offer superior service all the way around. Bryan picked up the ball on this transaction.. It was falling apart and we transferred the transaction over to Bryan and somehow he still closed it on time and my buyer was very happy with Bryan and me for referring Bryan.

—Jeff Fields - Realtor

Bryan at Academy not only met expectations but exceeded them. I needed some things that required a lot of work on his part and I never had to worry about getting it done. Of course he and his team delivered flawlessly! I know Bryan is very busy but he treats you as if your his only client and with highest priority. Very personable and at the same time very professional!

—Debbie Jennings - Realtor

Bryan is extremely attentive to my buyers needs.

—Victoria Romero - Realtor

First of all i want to say they are a top notch team they always keep you inform of whats going on with your loan and explain it where its easily to understand the terms....

—Daniel G Quezada

Fast response. Integrity and professionalism.

—Maggie Dias

Pretty amazing experience with Bryan Canar- he was able to get me through all the additional hassles of the loan process that self employed buyers face. He was able to do this even as I was just filing my 2nd full year tax return being self employed. The underwriting went way smoother than I had assumed, but that was due to the fact that Bryan obviously knows the ins and outs of what he does; he was able to anticipate all the documentation and questions that underwriters would require. Even better, I was unaware of the FHA MIP rate change in January. He was on top of the news and delayed starting the process so that my loan would qualify for the lower rate. This heads-up play ended up saving me over $100/month. I rarely have an experience that is outstanding enough to share with others, but I'll definitely be referring Bryan to anyone I know in the housing market.

—Scott Carpenter

I worked with Bryan Canar as my Loan Officer, and Henry Maya as his assistant (The Canar Group). They were on top of my transaction from start to finish. Every detail was taken care of with much consideration and in a timely manner. They went above and beyond to ensure that everything went smoothly with all parties involved. I greatly appreciate their hard work, and would highly recommend them to anyone!

—Katie Canar - Realtor

The Canar Group always does a phenomenal job with my clients! In this particular case, we were able to get this first-time home buyer into his new home in only 36 days... He was very pleased! Thank you to Bryan, Henry, Zach, and Yesenia for making this happen!

—Katie Canar

Having a bi-lingual team with Spanish-speaking clients is terrific - with the complexities of today's lending regulations, knowing that clients are well-informed and understand is critical to success.

—Bret Ceren

My experience at academy mortgage was unforgettable everyone was unbelievable because they were all the best people I have ever been with.

—Roberto Castillo

Brian pre-qualified my client and immediately sent me a copy of her pre-qual letter. We went through an entire deal that fell out after appraisal. We found another home and Brian was able to keep the same COE time. AMAZING RESULT. Brian also reached out to the sellers side and made sure they were in the loop the entire time. It got a little hairy at the end at escrow being crunched for time, but Bryan personally picked up the documents to make sure it funded on time.

—Kevin Wilson - Realtor

Smooth , exelent

—Miguel Johnston

It was a pleasure working with the Canar Group as always. Thank you for making the loan process smooth and seamless as usual!

—Katie Canar

Both Bryan Canar and Zach Nelson were absolutely phenomenal. I was talking to multipe mortgage companies leading up to switching over to Academy Mortgage and the main reason I did switch was because those other companies would tell me 1 thing and then a day or 2 later, it was something different. From the very get-go, Bryan told me exactly what was needed...what I could qualify for...and what to expect so there were no surprises throughout the loan process. Zach helped out a ton and he was my main point of contact for all the financial paperwork and making sure we kept our timeline moving smoothly. Every home buyer is worried enough about adding on a new house into their lives in regards to payments and new responsibilities. They don't need a mortgage company that makes them even more scared/stressed when un-needed "surprises" pop up in the process. These surprises never happened with Bryan and Zach, and that is why I have already referred multiple people to them for their own home loan that they're in the pr

—Jason Fields

Everyone was on the ball and helped make the whole process of buying a house as smooth as possible. We felt very prepared for each step and are extremely happy!

—Christoff Orr

This was another very smooth transaction thanks to The Canar Group! This one closed in only 39 days, even after the appraisal came in low and caused a set back doing an appraisal reconsideration, which luckily worked! Our team still managed to close 3 days earlier than the contracted date, and this first-time home buyer was very happy about that!

—Katie Canar

You guys always have your i's dotted and your t's crossed. Your team is always amazing and gets things done on time or earlier.

—Debbie Jennings

Very helpful they help me with a lot of stuff and paperwork I will recommend this company to everyone

—William cerda
