My experience was great. I have already recommended Academy to 3 different people.

—Stephen Lifferth

Brian was excellent in helping us with the purchase of our home. He was friendly and outgoing and cared about us as people...,not just about the house. He had great suggestions and helped us get the things we wanted at a lower payment then other institutions were able to do. Thank you for you help Brian's!

—Leonard Call

Brian is simply THE BEST. How he is able to get a loan done in such a short period of time (when other mortgage companies struggle) is a mystery to me! He's amazing! (Let's not forget to mention Andie! She's awesome too!)

—Tina Gerber

We were very pleased with Brian & his team, kept us well informed with the process along the way,definitely use them again great experience !

—Darald Miller

I had a great experience with Brian. He contacted relatively fast after I filled out some interest forms. Brian also helped me find a great realtor that I clicked with quickly.

—Taryn Culverwell

I really liked the periodic videos to show where we were at in the process. This was our first real home-buying experience so we were unfamiliar with what to expect.

—Kyle Stenson

I had a great experience with everyone here. I cant think of going through anyone different.

—Kimberlie Whitesell

Brian Crist, is incredible. Hands down the best mortgage officer I have ever worked with. He went above and beyond my expectations, over communicated the process and what he was doing and was always looking for ways to save me money and make my home buying process seamless.

—Stirling Ruuth

Brian Crist was awesome to work with. More than willing to take our calls and thoroughly discuss the process and our options.

—Von Nelson

The financial end of things always make me nervous, Academy Mortgage really took that away, and make it really painless and stress free. They were super great to work with and explained things to me so I could understand.

—Danelle Larsen

Brian went above and beyond for us. He really did. I saw my dream home listed on Mothers Day (Sunday) called up my realator who informed me we had to be preopproved to view the home. Our realator then contacted Brian who then worked on mother’s day to help us get pre opproved for the next day(and by the next day I mean the next morning!). He worked magic for us.

—Juanique Roney

Brian was very professional. He communicated with me through out the whole process. Whenever I had questions he was quick to answer. If I was not able to get in contact with him his staff was quick with replying. It was a pleasure to work with him and I would refer him to all my friends and family.

—Patty Syvannarath

Brian helped us with our refinance about a year ago so we knew we wanted him to help us with our new home loan. He’s fast, efficient, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We love working with Brian.

—Cara Briscoe

Brian Crist's experience is obvious as he lead us through the home buying/selling experience. To be honest, I had put off selling my home because I feared the cliche "sales" experience.

—Shahara Crist

Brian Crist was always very friendly and got back to me ASAP

—Jared Peterson

Truly amazing crew that connected with me and made my experience personal and simple. I felt like integrity was involved throughout the entire process and was confident with the knowledge shared.

—Bradey Wilde

Brian Crist is a miracle worker and pulled off the greatest loan package the world has ever known. I am so grateful for how hard he worked and his advocacy on our behalf. A loan officer with even an ounce less personal commitment to our success would have given up early on in the process, but Brian fought through and made it happen.

—Tristin Roney

Something that seems like it should be easy always amazes me how much work is required. Brian was a great partner to get us where we needed to be. Thanks!

—Richard Wahlin

We started communicating with Brian Crist during a visit to a home we had just viewed. Even though we were not going to purchase that home Brian started gathering information about us so that he could properly assess our situation and to provide us all of the options possible. When we did select a home Brian was right there to provide views of various financing options. Brian continued to provide great customer service and represented your financial institution very well. We really appreciated his very respectful treatment of us. It's been a pleasure doing business with him and your company!!

—Dave Pettingill

The entire process was awesome. Good job

—Richard Pierce

Brian Crist was great. I would go with him again and have already referred family to him.
