It’s all about service at Academy Mortgage, and our company has been meeting the needs of homebuyers across the United States since 1988. I joined Academy because of its strong reputation for integrity-based mortgage lending, its unwavering commitment to responsible lending practices, and for its broad portfolio of mortgage solutions and tools.

Since joining Academy, I have helped many individuals and families attain the dream of homeownership. 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.

We experienced a seemless transaction from Start to finish.

—Lottie Ringle

Honestly, I can't complain. The process was smooth from the Start, Clayton and Anna were super quick and efficient in their communication. If I had questions, they were always answered timely and honestly. I am very grateful for this experience.

—Benjamin Hyneck

The best thing was being able to get everything done via email and online. This helped a lot and saved traveling and time!

—Rachael Skubick

—Christine Parker

As mentioned above, but some additional communication on timing/steps/what to expect for the new time buyers like my wife and I (previous homes were done through builders, so experience was a bit different with the purchase and loan process)

—Todd Miller

Clayton Kendrick was my loan partner and he did an exceptional job. My client started out with a different lender who left him hanging. He found a house on a Sunday and she was not available and I suggested he call Clayton. Clayton was on vacation but still took the call and was able to pre approve him so we could write an offer.

—Kim Roberts Gustafson

Clayton Kendrick is very professional and quick to answer all of my questions. I will use him from here on out!

—Candace Ruma
