Always a pleasure working with you Dave. Logan was great about keeping us updated every step of the way.

From day one I knew I had contacted the perfect person to take care of me. Logan was relentless in his work to not only complete my loan, but to make sure it was the best possible fit for my situation. Even when issues came up that I honestly figured meant doom for making this possible. Even though Logan was my primary contact person Dave seemed to always be available to assistant help solve anything that came up. To the point that it was very evident that I had a true team getting things done for me. The honesty, knowledge, and commitment that I witnessed and got to experience are truly rare in today’s world.

Dave and Logan were extremely awesome!!! We had one loan company deny us because they couldn’t understand why we would sell our house for so much and then buy a new home for lesser price. So I suggested to my wife let’s give Dave Shepard a call and let him see what he could do for us. He was totally awesome! He even went as far as getting a three way phone call with that other loan company and my wife to see what had happened. He and and Logan went immediately to work for us and they had our loaned approved in record time. I can’t say enough good things about Dave and Logan and Academy Mortgage Corporation. Thank you all for all you did for us.
