I have been in the business of lending for 9 years. I have never been more fortunate than I am now to work for a company as professional as Academy Mortgage. My career goal is to give every family I work with the opportunity to achieve the dream of sustainable homeownership. Academy Mortgage has given me the tools to accomplish these goals. With my hard work and persistence, every homeowner I meet (future or present), will have the opportunity to put their family in the home of their dreams. I look forward to hearing from you!

Very pleased with Academy services. Our experience with them was the best we have received so far in dealing with Mortgage Companies.

—Brandy Clifford

This is the second time we have used Jason and Chris. They are amazing in every way! They always explain the process to me and make it easy to understand . They exceed my expectations in every way. I would never use anyone else! I will always be a loyal Academy Mortgage customer because of Chris Berg and Jadon Spears.

—Kellie Farnsworth

Chris provided excellent service and demonstrated a working knowledge of the mortgage industry. Chris and his staff, plus Pam at the title company, got the recording of the documents and funding on the morning of the day we needed to take possession. A great example of the team experience.

—Bernard Jones

So far, things are great. It's all coming together without a hassle. I would be very happy to spread the word about Academy Mortgage and the care of financial wizardry that is needed in purchasing a home. Overall, I am pleasantly pleased.

—Patricia Macrae

This is my second house that I have purchased and working with Chris and all the guys and gals over at academy have made the stressful process of buying a home a lot less stressful. They were always willing to go the extra mile and get myself and my family into our dream home. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is in the market.

—Jeremy Gordon

Great job Chris and team

—Josh Parker

To the Chris, Jason, and the entire Jason Spears team: It was more than a pleasure working with all of you! Your customer service was impeccable and your combined expertise unmatched; you helped my family to cross the finish line and we are forever grateful! Sincerely, The Burtons

—Alicia Burton

Chris was a great help to us. When everyone else told us no due to our unique situation, Chris stepped up to the challenge and made it happen for us!

—Jayne Stenseth

We had such a tremendous experience getting our USDA loan for our new home through Chris Berg and team at Academy Mortgage. It was smooth, consistent and relieved so much stress from us during what is a very aggravating process. They constantly worked to get us, and were quick to reply back to us - even during off hours. Chris was with us during every step of the way, and we are so grateful for that. We will always go through Chris Berg in the future. We can't thank you enough for getting us into our dream home!

—Cory Baber

This is the second time I have worked with Academy Mortgage. During both experiences I have found the loan staff to be friendly, knowledgeable, and driven to provide excellent service.

—Victor Hudy

Chris Berg was excellent. We were always kept informed on the progress and the steps were always clearly explained. The whole process was effortless!

—Jeffery Thomas

Chris once again did a fantastic job for us!!! This is our second experience with Academy Mortgage. Chris helped us purchase our home 2 years ago and now he helped us do a refinance from an FHA loan to a Conventional 15 year loan. He did a great job and we would highly recommend him. He kept us informed every step of the way and the loan closed within a month of starting the process. He made everything simple and he was a pleasure to work with.

—Rick Maifield

Chris was great with answering all of my questions and ensuring that I had the best product available for my lending needs. Information was sent to me quickly and was easy to understand.
