Honesty, integrity, and commitment are philosophies that guide my career in the mortgage industry. I take pride in looking out for every one of my clients and helping them achieve their goals. Having come from a real estate family and working in mortgages for 14 years, I know the ins-and-outs of the home purchase process and the stress that it can cause. That is why I am dedicated to effectively guiding my clients on their path to successful home ownership. When you’ve got the right loan officer and team behind you, the process is not only easy, but also enjoyable. 
CJ grew up in Sandy, Utah, and currently calls Murray home. He has earned numerous awards and recognition for his high production and customer satisfaction scores. When not in the office, you can probably find him out on the Great Salt Lake on his sailboat or snowboarding with his family at Solitude. He and his wife have four children, and he loves spending time outdoors with his family and friends.

CJ did a great job keeping me in the loop from start to finish. I appreciated his excellent customer service and his hard work to push my loan through.

CJ Wilkinson. He was absolutely amazing to work with. He spent so much time talking to me on the phone and over email answering my many questions and making me feel comfortable about the whole process. He was so quick to get back with me anytime I emailed him and he always made sure that I understood what was going on and what to expect next. I just can't say enough good things about CJ and how awesome he was to work with. I would absolutely recommend CJ and Academy to all my friends and family. Thank you!!

I had a great experience. We gave them a short time frame to get the loan done, and in the middle of that time there was a holiday. Everyone worked really hard, and got it done so fast efficiently. It was great!
