Welcome!

I have learned that buying the house of your dreams in not all about its size or color. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door and it’s about the way you envision your life there. Your home is more than just real estate and a mortgage loan. It's about your life, your dreams and the memories you will make.

As a mortgage lender, I understand how important this decision is for you and your family. In fact, purchasing or refinancing your home is one of the largest financial investments you will make in your lifetime. You need someone you can trust, who is a proven professional and who understands your individual needs.

You will have many questions such as: “What type of mortgage loan will best meet my needs? What down payment options and grants are available? Will buying a home allow me to still live a comfortable lifestyle?” I am confident I can answer your questions and help you find the best mortgage that meets your individual needs. My commitment to you is to focus your unique situation and provide you with tailored mortgage that meet the needs of you and your family.

I am excited to work for Academy Mortgage where I feel it's truly about service. I joined Academy because of its strong reputation for integrity-based mortgage lending and its unwavering commitment to responsible lending practice.

I've worked in the mortgage industry since 1998 and I have originated mortgages for two of Utah's largest credit unions and the largest residential mortgage lender in the world. Since joining Academy, I have helped many individuals and families attain the dream of home ownership. 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.

Chris went above and beyond to make this deal happen!! My client is extremely thankful that he took my suggestion to use Chris Macpherson. I truly believe this deal would not have closed if we had used any other loan officer. Thanks a million!

Chris MacPherson.

—Heather Nelson

We were selling and buying at the same time and while we came across multiple obstacles with our buyer, their lender and realtor, Chris and Academy Mortgage did everything they could (and more) to make sure our purchase was on time so that when our sale finally went through we got the keys earlier than we should. Chris went out of his way to talk to the lender for our buyer to see how he could assist in a transaction that didn't involve him just to make things easier on us and our closing process

Our agent Chris MacPherson kept us well informed during the whole loan process. He got us the best possible loan for our budget.

Some of the reasons I have referred Chris MacPherson is, he is very honest and good at staying in communication. He educates people so they can make the right decision for themselves. For example if people's objective is to not just get in to a mortgage but pay it off early he will meet with them and go over things that can help them be more disciplined with their finances and help them achieve their goal even if it means a smaller loan amount and less money in his pocket as a loan officer. Chris MacPherson has always done a great job. My clients continually say they are happy with his service and would highly recommend him to their family and friends.

Chris MacPherson was our loan officer and was always very helpful. Anytime I had any questions he was always willing to freely answer any phone calls or emails. He was very informative and assuring.

We really appreciate the commitment to us and helping us find the right place, always keeping us up to date throughout the whole process. Thank you so much for helping us finally find our own place.

Chris is the first person I turn to and recommend my buyers to turn to when they have any questions in regards to the lending side of a real estate transaction. He is excellent at educating us in simple terms and is willing to look at other options that will be best for the buyer. I really appreciate that the underwriter is in-house and that every transaction I have closed with them has been on time.

: Chris was awesome to work with. He always kept us informed and always made sure we were prepared for the next step. I have heard of so many other people who have had to get paper work at the very last minute before they could close on their homes. But, Chris made sure we had any extra paperwork. He asked us to gather extra paperwork just in case we were asked for it. We ended up not needing it because Chris already had that paperwork. We will definitely be referring our friends to him when they are looking for homes. I really enjoyed working with Academy Mortgage. I felt like we also made a friend which is always a plus!

—Jonathan Scott Simpson

Chris was a great agent. I could tell that he really wanted to help me out and get me the best deal, of which I am grateful for.

I first tried to refinance with my existing mortgage company but after 2 1/2 months, 3 different people in 3 different states still no refi. My main loan officer was only available by email, no phone. I called Chris and 3 hours later he called me to say we were off and running. He was always available for questions and updates, with videos. Thank you Chris
