Welcome!

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.

You're in good hands with Academy Mortgage and myself. I have been in the mortgage industry for 19 years now. I am a lifelong resident of Utah County so I am very familiar with the area.

I invite you to put us to the test. Let me show you how simple and easy securing a mortgage can be.

I HAD A FLAWLESS EXPERIENCE WITH ACADEMY MORTGAGE. MY AGENT DON OLSEN WAS A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH AND KEPT ME INFORMED OF EACH STEP OF THE PROCESS SO I DIDN'T HAVE TO WONDER OR WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING. I ONLY HAD TO GO TO THE OFFICE ONCE, THE REST WAS DONE BY PHONE AND EMAIL. THAT WAS VERY CONVENIENT SINCE I HAVE YOUNG ONES AT HOME AND DIDN'T HAVE TO DRAG THEM EVERYWHERE. I WILL DEFINITELY USE ACADEMY MORTGAGE AGAIN FOR ANY NEEDS I MAY HAVE, AND WILL DEFINITELY RECOMMEND TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS. THANK YOU!
