It’s all about service at Academy Mortgage, and our company has been meeting the needs of homebuyers 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 homeownership. 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.

I had the pleasure of working with Ashley, and she made the entire process so simple and easy! She always took time to explain everything in detail, so I fully understood what was going on. I also work odd hours, and Ashley was still able to reach out, when it was convenient for me.


Purchasing a home is not something you do often and in some cases can be stressful. Academy Mortgage staff made the process less stressful with their knowledgeable staff and friendly approach.


Ashley was amazing to work with and we really appreciate her support during this process!


The Orozco Team was great to work with. The communication was always timely. On time closings and keeping tabs on the status of my transactions are important to me, so that I can keep my clients happy & updated, and Ashley always passed along updates and responded to inquiries quickly. I would recommend them to my clients as a reliable, local resource for loan options.
