What sets me apart from my competition is not only my knowledge and expertise in mortgage lending but my personal touch. I will work with you one-on-one from starting your loan application in the beginning to reviewing your settlement documents at the closing table along side you. I am always looking to exceed my customers expectations. I believe that choosing the right mortgage for your home loan is as important as you choosing the right home for your family. I treat my customers the way that I would want and expect to be treated which is with honesty, integrity, and respect.

At Academy Mortgage we are able to offer very competitive pricing, amazing customer service, and we offer a wide variety of loan programs such as:


FHA 203K


Conventional Loans

Jumbo Loans

Foreign National Loans

USDA Loans

If your credit is good or not so good we will find a loan program that best fits your financing needs. The expertise and professionalism of our staff at Academy Mortgage sets us apart from the competition. We are dedicated to insuring our customers satisfaction throughout the entire loan process. Your home loan will begin and end in our local office and Erick will be there by your side to answer any questions you may have.

So, if you are looking to buy a new primary residence, second home or investment property give Erick a call today and allow him help you with your financing needs.

I enjoyed working with Academy Mortgage. They provided professional and expert services. Erick was always available by phone or email when I needed him. All my questions were always answered on a timely manner. The staff was very courteous and knowledgeable. The best part of my experience with Academy Mortgage was the closing. They got me on the closing table on the day that I wanted with no hassle. Erick even surprisingly showed up at closing. This was my third house purchase and absolutely the best working with this company. Thanks for all your hard work. Keep it up:)

Eric and his team are awesome! They really made this process aa smooth as possible. Thank you Eric, Kerri and Bianca!

—Jean Fleurimond

Excellent experience. Everyone at Academy was professional and knowledgeable. My loan package was actually complete one week prior to the contractual closing date. I would definitely use Erick and his team again.

—Rosemarie Mulholland

There were three things that were of extreme importance to us when we first started this process: timing, communication and transparency. You exceeded our expectations in each category. You told us you could get our loan approved by month's end (3 weeks) and sure enough it was approved. Overall, we both could not be more satisfied with the level of service we received from you. We really believe that you care about your customer, have a "whatever it takes" attitude and we would have no hesitation in recommending your services to our friends and family. Thank you so much.

In all my trials and errors of searching to the perfect lending partner I have found a gold mine with Erick. He is friendly and personable from day one with all my clients. Throughout any home purchase journey he is quick to get back to us about any and all questions.

Overall, I was very satisfied with the professionalism of all of the individuals that were involved in my first time home buying experience. All parties were great with their communication, no matter what the question, or time. I appreciate the information that was broken down for me in a way I could understand and retain. I hope to do business again in the future! Thank you!

Very professional

—Steven Peters

The home buying process has been two years in the making for my wife and I, and it will finally come to a conclusion on May 30, 2014. This has been a long and tedious process that has been made very simple due to the patience and professionalism of Erick Cantele and Academy Mortgage. Erick was with us throughout the duration of our search. He gave us sound advice on every home that we saw and made an offer on, was always a phone call away, and answered every question that my wife and I had as first time home buyers. There is absolutely no way that we would have been able to come to a sound decision if it were not for Erick and his team’s assistance. We are truly grateful to him and Academy Mortgage for the help they gave us. There is not a better person or company to work with!

—Matt Starr

Overall it was AMAZING. Everyone was wonderful, and patient with all my questions!!

—Michelle Cullen

Staff was very pleasant and communicated often. We realized that it was too far for us to come down to Boca Raton. That would be a big reason for not wanting to do that again.

—Frederick Fine/Gloria Fine

Testimonial: Erick and his team were very professional, approachable, and helpful. Erick and his team made this journey go smoothly taking us step by step helping us achieve our dream. Academy Mortgage/ Erick Cantele went above and beyond in achieving our goal. Thank you.

—Orlando Sotomayor

I have to say that this entire process from start to finish has been excellent. From your responsiveness , to sense of urgency, Danielle and I have been extremely pleased. Your knowledge of the business and ability to explain each situation (and step) has also significantly contributed to making this a very pleasant experience. All of this , in addition to receiving a good loan with very reasonable associated costs. Thank you again, we both look forward to closing on Thursday in addition to working with you again in the future.

—Alfred Ruglio

Erick and his Team are examples of professionals in the Mortgage Business. They communicate well, provide information proactively, and work diligently to deliver all that is promised. My favorite memory of the transaction was when I somewhat jokingly requested for Erick to “Bring his A-game” after having just recently been introduced to one another. He responded by simply saying “That’s all I have”, which ultimately in my opinion turned out to be true. I recommend Erick and his Team to anyone seeking a pleasant Mortgage Experience.

—Kyle Roney

Thank you for all that you have done during the loan process. It was truly a pleasure working with Academy mortgage and the people who encompass that growing business.

Thank you again because I know this would not have been possible without this company.

Erick and his team have been very diligent throughout this entire process and succeeded in obtaining a mortgage commitment sooner than we thought possible. They made an experience that had become very stressful during our original encounter with our bank into an experience we were able to get through with little or no stress. We cannot thank Erick Cantele and his team enough for helping us reach our destination.

—Marion Fitzsimmons

Erick has been the true professional throughout the entire process and I look forward to working with him again in the very near future. I would not hesitate for a moment to introduce him to my buyers!

Erick and his team at Academy Mortgage were immensely helpful, patient and accessible throughout our home-buying process. He was recommended to us by our mothers who felt he would prove to be a great guide for us as first-time home buyers. She was definitely correct and we are happy to recommend his service for anyone in need of a home loan. Ashley T.and Y. Gordon
