I’m Carmen Babb, a top-producing Loan Officer for Academy Mortgage. I have worked in the mortgage origination business since 1997 and joined Academy in 2020. Over my career as a Loan Officer, I have closed millions of dollars of loan transactions, and my particular areas of expertise are first time homebuyers, renovation loans, and helping potential homebuyers plan and prepare to buy a home in the future. With my experience and Academy’s broad array of mortgage solutions to choose from, I will help you find the right loan program and pricing for your situation.

Our Branch Office in Salem, Oregon is 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, and I will keep you 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.

A strong supporter of our communities, I participate in volunteer work with Boys & Girls Club and several local schools.

I was born and raised in Salem, Oregon and currently there still today, along with my husband, Dave, and our daughter, Reagan, and our son, Nolan.
I am a graduate of George Fox University. I enjoy travel, kayaking, and quality time with family.
