With 25 years of helping clients finance their real estate needs, my most important job during the mortgage planning process is to insure you’re confident as you make choices about the many financing options available and feel comfortable with how these choices will affect your overall financial strategy. It would be my pleasure to help you with the financial information you’ll need when it’s time to buy or sell, invest, build or refinance.

Experience to help: I’ve always loved real estate and live in the Tacoma/Steilacoom area. My wife and I purchased our first home in 1979 (experienced, not old) raising our three sons and two “westies” here. I enjoy kayaking Puget Sound, walking (not golfing) Chambers Bay, cycling and swimming and working out at the “Y”. We love to take advantage of the great waterfront dining opportunities in Gig Harbor and Seattle as well.

I have frequently earned “Top Producer” designations over my career, including 2012 & 2014, Circle of Excellence awards, Outstanding Achievement in production awards, and the “Top Seattle Mortgage Professionals” awards for 2011 through 2014. More importantly my clients consistently give me the highest marks for customer service as we complete their projects.

The best staff: Our lending team at the Tacoma Home Loan Center is unsurpassed. Our best resource is the amazing people that assist me in completing your project. Our branch has always been one of the top branches in the company and handles all details of your loan request… from application to closing.

It is my personal philosophy that meeting and exceeding the needs and expectations of my clients is a privilege. I take great pride in serving my clients with the same professional care and attention that I would want for my own family.

In many years as a broker, I have worked with countless loan officers, but never on better than Bill Hannon. Though my office has a very seasoned and professional in-house loan officer, I always opt to work with Bill instead.

Bill was able to keep everything on track to close as originally planned despite extensive repairs delaying the process. Additionally, he was always responsive and supportive when I had a concern. Couldn't have been done better.

It was a pleasure working with Bill Hannon and his team at Academy Mortgage. The experience of buying our first home was stress free and enjoyable—in large part because of Bill’s knowledge, disposition, and accessibility. Bill felt like a friend who could be called or emailed about ANY questions, whenever necessary. Bill was also very affable and transparent.

Matt and Bill did a great job. Being a first time home buyer the process is fun, exciting, stressful and terrifying all at the same time. their communication and professionalism made the process a lot easier. I constantly called Matt with questions and concerns and he always answered his phone or got back to me right away. They walked me through the process, told me exactly what I needed to do, and were always there to support me every step of the way. I will be recommending them to friends and family and using them for any financing needs I have in the future!
