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.

Brenda was great. We even referred a friend who was looking to refinance their home. We tried going through wells fargo for our mortgage before this and it was a nightmare. Academy Mortgage and Brenda went above and beyond.

I worked with Brenda Heller out of the Kalispell, MT office. I I really like the fact that she was and is always available to talk to and has the answers to any questions I may have had or she would find them for me. She had patience with me as I had no phone service between selling and buying my old home to new home. She would Text me on any needs she may of had to complete the Loan Service, and I would get ahold of her once in Cell Service. All in all it was a very easy process, I started the process in one State and was easy to transfer to another. Basiclly from Idaho to Montana. I will highly recommend Academy Mortgage to anyone who is need of a Home Loan
