As a licensed producing branch manager, with over 30 years experience, you can rest assured you're working with the right mortgage officer. If you're a first time home buyer wondering where to start, you've come to the right place. Our list of first time home-buyer programs include FHA, USDA's Rural Housing, VA, VHFA (Vermont Housing) including their assist option offering up to $5,000 in assistance to home buyers that qualify. We also have Fannie Mae's Homeready program, and of course the traditional conventional loan with Private Mortgage Insurance. Academy offers a wide array of PMI options that may lower your monthly payment. For those looking to buy up, buy down, purchase a second home, or an investment property, Academy has the programs and I have experience to navigate the process smoothly. You'll get honest answers and straightforward information to help you make an informed decision.

Jeff and Laurie were both great. They helped us through a rocky situation that another lender put us in and we closed on our dream home with no issues.

—Benjamin Greene

I was introduced to Jeff from a co-worker who knows him. From the minute we talked, Jeff made the process seamless with constant communication and follow-up. Not having done a mortgage for a number of years, there were no surprises and my expectations were greatly exceeded. I will recommend Jeff and Academy Mortgage to everyone I come in contact with who is looking for a mortgage.

—Christopher Turley

I've worked with a couple different lenders from this company and have begun working with Jeff Myers more frequently lately. I have the utmost confidence in him or anyone else who brings on to his team/company because he serves agents and clients just like I serve mine. It's tough to find reliable people in this business and for that I'm grateful to have one I can send my buyers to and know they're in the best hands possible.

—Mike Shannon

There were some problems with signing the preliminary documents because Marilyn did not have and email address so her signatures used my email address and that did not work for the first round of documents, but did work for the final online approval.

—Paul Hyde

Jeff was responsive and thorough. As first time home buyers, he guided us through every step of the process.

—Savannah DeMar

During a very stressful time in my life Jeff had a very calming effect on me. We sold our own home and had stay with friends/family for a month before the closing on our new home. One Friday night I was very stressed out about the "numbers" --Jeff went into the office on Saturday morning and called me by noon with a solution and clarity for me. Working with Jeff, was like working with someone on "my own team" and I felt safe and I always trusted what he said. He is amazing to work with and I would recommend him to anyone!

—Andrew Bolduc

From the start all the way through completion and beyond Jeff was awesome. with my very limited knowledge and experience with loans or anything legal at that matter i needed a lot of help. Jeff patiently and effectively walked me through every step of the process and took the time to go through every document and bring it down to my level. Jeff was very approachable and i knew i could ask him anything and he would treat the question with importance and respect no matter how small it seemed to me. Simply my experience could not have been any better. 10/10. Additionally Jeff has made himself available to walk through the mortgage payments making sure i don't miss deadlines and understand the process. Very Happy.

—David Comstock

My son purchased a house about a year ago,he told us how well he was treated. The communication we received was prompt clear and helpful. Great experience, we were walked through the whole process with patients and information delivered clean , concise and timely.

—Lenita Wells

Academy Mortgage handled my financing when we bought our house in May 2014, and I was impressed with their service at that time. Jeff sought me out less than a year later to let me know that the PMI rates had dropped, and that this would be an excellent time to refinance. Had he not reached out when he did we may have lost our opportunity to refinance into a substantially lower payment, and for that I am very grateful. Jeff was very helpful in informing us of the various options for a refinance, he was very helpful and responsive throughout, and the staff at Academy was professional and excellent. Thank you all!

—Nicole Killoran

I mainly worked with Jeff Meyers and my my experience with him was amazing. He provided Prompt responses, showed extreme confidence, sat down with me and explained everything in detail, as well as provided some additional information for me as a first time home owner. He worked extremely hard for me and over coming some obstacles in the way of obtaining a mortgage loan. The whole home buying process can be stressful and scary, however Jeff made this experience for me as easy as possible, guiding me every step of the way and again giving me advise that I greatly appreciated. I would strongly recommend Academy Mortgage to my friends and family, especially Jeff, he was absolutely wonderful.

—Jamie Martell

We worked with Jeff Myers, whom was very helpful for us through each step of the way in the process of applying for our loan. When I first encountered Jeff, he was the only broker to return my call in regards to our mortgage pre-qualification application when no one else would as I was under a very tight deadline to put things in motion - Jeff called me back within an hour while he was on vacation, on a mountain in Montana! He has been excellent to work with. As well as Laurie st. Gelias who was very helpful alongside Jeff, in helping us remain on track for closing. Academy Mortgage has been a great team to work with!

—Chris Younce

I found all the paperwork a bit daunting really and Jeff Myers was simply the best at demystifying the concepts, jargon, and the time line for the closing. After all was said, signed and done, I'm a very happy homeowner thanks to Jeff.

—Richard Fetterman

Jeff is an absolute professional. And more than that, he is innovative and tailors the loan to fit your needs. His deep experience means he can work quickly and anticipate concerns long before they arise.

—Stephen Hingtgen

We had a difficult closing due to a few setbacks and Academy's staff really stepped up to help us resolve and move past those issues. It was a great help having them on our side and I would recommend them to others.

Mechelle and Jeff made the process very easy. It was a pleasure working with a professional team.

—Earl Locke

All my interactions with Jeff have been very positive. I really get the feeling that he is looking out for our best interests. He is a pleasure to work with!


Academy Mortgage made the home buying process easy for us. They only brought us in when they needed documentation or information and kept us out of all the work that goes on in the background which we appreciated. Laurie was super helpful keeping us informed on the timeline and when we would need documentation by. Thanks to her proactive communication and quick responses, we were able to deliver everything on time and closed on schedule.

—Kendra Richer

Jeff was great - very responsive to questions, and a wealth of information.

—Jennifer Peterson

Jeff Myers did an excellent job presenting the pros and cons of multiple home refinance options. The loan application thru closing process was very clear and well executed. The turn-around time from first contact with Jeff to closing was impressive. No bureaucratic delays. The back end processor, Laurie St. Gelais, was very clear on the follow on documentation needed and did an outstanding job orchestrating the closing to make sure everything was in place and moving along. I will highly recommend Academy Mortgage and Jeff Myer's team locally. I will definitely do future business also.
