It’s all about service at Academy Mortgage, and our company has been meeting the needs of home-buyers across the United States since 1988. I joined Academy because of its strong reputation for integrity-based mortgage lending, its unwavering commitment to responsible lending practices, and for its broad portfolio of mortgage solutions and tools.

Since joining Academy, I have helped many individuals and families attain the dream of home-ownership. Whether you want to buy a new home or refinance an existing mortgage, I will provide a customized solution for you at competitive rates. No brokering, no middleman, no hassle, no surprises.

Academy is a direct lender, which means that my Branch and Regional Offices are equipped to complete the entire loan process in-house—all loan processing, underwriting, closings, and funding are handled locally. As a result, we have a proven track record of closing loans as quickly and efficiently as possible.

I will be in control of your loan file from start to finish, and I will be up-to-date on the status of your loan at all times. I understand the importance of maintaining continuous communication throughout the loan process and commit to providing you accurate, timely, and honest mortgage advice.

I invite you to put us to the test. Let me show you how simple and easy securing a mortgage can be.

Alex and his team made this a very easy process for our fist time buying a home. They were always available to answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend Academy Mortgage .

Very easy and smooth experience

—Jason Raths

Alex was excellent to work with!! He makes sure he has all the documents needed from any client to make sure we always close on time. Working with Alex and Academy was hassle free and took the stress out of the lending process.

Alex Kirkland was very easy to work with and always very polite. He was thorough in his knowledge of the loan products available to me and was very quick to answer emails and phone calls. I never felt like I was left hanging at all. Alex...he's good people.

—Robert Birosh

We really appreciated how on top of everything Alex was. Any questions we had he'd get back to us really quick with an answer or that he was working on finding the answer. Alex was really informative and telling us where we were in our loan process in keeping us up-to-date at all times.

We refinanced our home with Academy Mortgage for the second time. The original purchase was also done with Academy. That says a lots. We are the classic repeat customer. When one is provided excellent service with people who are knowledgeable, responsive to the tasks needed to get though underwriting and with sticktoitiveness you work with them time and again. We endorse Academy Mortgage to friends and anyone that needs to finance their original purchase or refinance.

—Rudy Concepcion

I had never heard of Academy Mortgage until my home loan was transferred to them. Since then I have refinanced twice and have nothing but good experiences. My most recent refi with Alex Kirkland was very quick and easy. He answered all my questions timely and thoroughly. I would definitely recommend Academy Mortgage for your home loan!

—Kimberly Baker

Academy did a great job of walking me through the process step by step. They laid out everything I should expect and need during the home buying process. The team went above and beyond answering e-mails over the weekend so I make timely decisions. Academy was a great help to me in the home buying process.

—Michael Galli

Everyone I worked with was extremely professional and helpful. My very first home buying experience was absolutely amazing.

—Allison Laureanti

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.
