Deb and her team took over a loan from Chase bank at the end of November that Chase could not close because of a bad appraisal. She ordered a new appraisal immediately, and got them into their home before Christmas. My clients were thrilled. It was a Christmas miracle. Thank you SO much!

—Libby Loftin - Realtor

As a very particular Real Estate Agent I strive in offering only the best service to my clients. Thus will only give a referral to a lender if in fact we would personally use them & they too offer great service. Deborah Lapierre offers great service & I am very pleased to give her information out to my clients. Thanks Deborah for all you do!

Everyone overall did a superb job! Deborah Lapierre was our Angel sent by God to guide us through this process and made a believer out of me that dreams do come true. Her very calm and reassuring demeanor got us through a few stressful days. Her team was just magnificent. Very professional and kept us informed. I've never seen such hard working women. Sincerely this family thank you and will forever be greatful. We love you!

—Ira McCray

Fourth house we've purchased. With the previous 3, the mortgage, underwriting, and title experience were pressure-filled, complicated, depressing, and felt incredibly invasive. With Academy and this mortgage, the entire process was easy, quick, and painless. We would recommend Academy in a New York minute!

—Scott Moore

Customer service from a Realtors prospective. I can usually count on Deborah to be there when I need something handled.

—Don Hanson - Realtor

Nothing what-so-ever. Deborah was absolutely AMAZING in her interactions and communications with me. I could not have been more pleased with my experience. From the moment that I first communicated with Deborah, I could not have been more pleased. She responded to my email at 9:30 PM and asked that I give her a call when I have a chance and I responded that I was still up and she called me and we spoke for almost an hour about what my options were in purchasing a home. Deborah communicated with me even while she was on vacation and her mother was ill. She was extremely responsive to every email and phone call that I sent and even as I think back on my interaction with Deborah and Academy Mortgage, it brings a smile to my face. Purchasing my home was effortless with Deborah.

—Margarete Nasir

We were very happy with our experience! We were provided with fast-friendly service and never had a problem getting our questions answered in a timely manner. Buying our home was actually a fun experience because of the prompt and informative service we received through Academy Mortgage and our Realtor.

—Jerald Hansen

Expertise in the area and her compassionate nature towards all of her customers, both internal and external alike.

—Nancy Chavez - Realtor

I had a great experience working with Deborah and her team. They truly went above and beyond while helping me secure financing for my home. They were always available to answer any and all of my questions and kept me well aware of the progress of my loan. I would highly recommend Academy Mortgage to my friends and family.

—Mario Moreno

I really appreciate getting frequent updates and the personal contact that Deb has provided.

—Desiree Marshall - Realtor

Deborah Lapierre and Robin Sandoval were very professional and thorough. They knew exactly what I needed to submit before sending my file to the underwriter. They were both available whenever I had any questions and supported me through the process. Getting financing for a new home is much more stressful than I imagined, but I was able to get through it with their help. Once my file was sent to the underwriter, she only needed 2 more items from me - nothing major. I feel very fortunate to have had Deb and Robin assigned to me.

—Deborah Stiner

Deb has amazing communication and problem solving skills. She is one of a kind and in a class of her own as a loan officer. Deb was able to close our $500,000+ deal in 14 days. We asked for a 15 day COE and she beat that by one day. She is so smart and resourceful. I really appreciate her loyalty and brilliance!!

—Georgi Stratton

I was a first time home buyer and Deb made my experience very easy and seemed dedicated to making the process run smoothly. She took extra time to explain things to me and always answered my questions when I didn't understand part of the process. I felt like she was available to me 24-7 which made things very convenient and I appreciated that a lot. I was able to close in less than a month which I expected to be much more stressful than it was.

—Jessica Jungers
