My name is Erich Stonewall and I am a Senior Mortgage Loan Officer and Branch Manager with Academy Mortgage Corporation.
I am a native of Rockford and have lived here most of my life. I served in the United States Army for 4 years as an Electronics Technician. I began working as a Mortgage Loan Officer in the mortgage industry 19 years ago. I am a proud member of the Rockford Chamber of Commerce, Business Network International, Rockford Independent Networking Group and also have served as Director for Promised Land Employment Services.

I have found that working with people to secure a mortgage loan so that they are able to purchase the home of their dreams is a very rewarding career and I could not think of anything else that I would rather be doing! I pride myself on the relationships that I develop based on honesty, integrity, knowledge and an extremely high level of customer service.

Whatever your level of home buying experience may be, I look forward to helping you manage the process with confidence!
