I have been a mortgage professional for over 20 years. I have the expert knowledge in Conventional, FHA, VA, USDA Rural Housing, and other mortgage loan programs. My office in Chandler, Arizona has our own full-time underwriters, doc drawers, and funders to ensure we continue our goal to NEVER miss a closing. We ARE the bank as we lend our own money, which keeps our team involved throughout the loan process.

It is imperative that you INTERVIEW anyone you are consulting for assistance in the buying or refinancing process: How long have you been in the business? Are they a bank or broker? Do they have a local underwriter and funder in their office? Also, you should be able to get an interest rate quote in the first 5 MINUTES you speak to someone. Lastly, when mortgage shopping make sure to get quotes from your prospective lenders within the same hour of each other. With the volatile market, rates change daily, so be prepared for that.

Rest assured, the SpearsTeam will work hard to provide you with the most professional service available and make this a smooth and stress-free process. I am always available for questions, referrals, or anything you just want to check on!

Chris Berg and his staff are always provide excellent customer service. We always knew what stage our loan was at, they provided truthful information up front, and always returned our calls and emails within a 24 hour period. This is our second time using Chris, and if needed, will come back to him again.

All of our questions were answered and we closed on time.

The Jason spears team worked diligently to help us in our time of need. They were prompt, communicative, and knowledgable.

Eddie was on top of our loan process and was very informative on any questions we had. With Eddies and the team at Academy Mortgages help we were able to close earlier then anticipated. We thank you and have already began recommending Academy Mortgage to others.
