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.

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

I have had such a wonderful experience- It has felt like Greg was apart of my family going through this process with me and making everything fall into my place for me and my family. He went above and beyond, helping us fix our credit along the way to stopping by to see the house after we closed. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Greg and the Academy Team.

Thank you. I wanted to commend Greg [Lira]. I have never seen someone more efficient, more determined to get my business and provide council. He called me late on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I have never had a business deal started on that day, and he made me feel completely confident that he would get this deal done by years end. You have a magnificent employee and a good hard working man who made me feel I was the most important person he was dealing with.
