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.

Welcome to Academy Mortgage

Jonelle Knipe was excellent in her communication and follow through.

—Ladine Marquardt

Jonelle Knipe's availability mixed with her experience and knowledge of the process makes for a wonderful partnership with all parties involved.

—Annette Hadaway

Jonelle Knipe is amazing. She went above and beyond and very well could be the key reason that the seller accepted our bid over other (probably more attractive) bids. She was in communication with the real estate agents, was incredibly fast with her assistance, and was a joy to work with. For context, I'd been working with another broker for five weeks who still couldn't provide us with what we required until after Memorial Day. Trouble was that we had to get our bid in ON Memorial Day. Jonelle stepped in the morning of Memorial Day, at the recommendation of our real estate agent, and out of nowhere, delivered. We're very grateful.

—Paul Saydak

Jonelle and her team were knowledgeable, friendly and made themselves available any time I needed.

—William Stewart

Jonelle is fantastic. Getting a mortgage is a complicated process and she has a gift for explaining the process clearly without glossing over important details or getting bogged down in trivial details. She is to the point without being brusque. She communicates with me and my husband as individuals on the same team rather than one entity.

—Christina Borland

Jonelle was amazing to work with! I was very nervous and scared when I first reached out. She was wonderful and kind and took the time to really explain each step. I cant THANK her enough!

It had been over 20 years since I had been through the loan process. Jonelle Knipe went above and beyond what I expected. She was very responsive to my questions and requests.
