Jon was very reachable at all times, this was the easiest and best mortgage experience I have ever experienced.

—Thomas Sanders

Jon was very efficient and so helpful in taking us through the loan process. All questions were answered very quickly and in a thorough way that was easy to understand. We were kept informed each step of the way always knowing what was coming next, with plenty of a heads up to gather and sign the required documents. The closing attorney commented on the accuracy of the paperwork and that all the final numbers were in order. We were glad that there were no surprises in our final closing costs, they were exactly what Jon had said they would be. Will definitely use Academy Mortgage for our next mortgage loan. Thanks very much!

—Daniel Howes

Jon and his team were great! Whenever I needed clarification on something or needed simple questions answered, Jon or one of his team members would promptly respond addressing exactly what I asked about - There was no "See our website for more information" or "Please reference my previous email or attached document" type responses. The service they provide is complimented by their efficiency, professionalism, courtesy and an overall customer satisfaction approach. I would recommend Jon and Academy mortgage.

—Thomas Jack

—Tamera Clements

Quick response and processing, made it very clear what they needed from me.

—Richard Cole

My entire process from going under contract on the home to having my loan approved in time for closing took less than a month. The team even went out of their way when I requested to close a week earlier than originally asked. This group gets things done. Everyone involved was incredibly efficient and a pleasure to work with.

—Jason Lawya

Jon did a great job for us. Every time we had a question, he was ready with an answer. His knowledge of the process continually allayed any fears we had, and helped reassure us that things were moving along.

—Robert Rover

Jon and his team were very proactive and responsive to our situation. While he did not mislead us into believing that we could ultimately qualify and close our home loan, his positive attitude and persistence made a huge difference. He never once told us it was "hopeless" as we'd heard from other companies. Furthermore, when it looked like our process was in trouble and closing had been delayed, he worked very diligently to keep on schedule and on track, which he was able to do. We very much appreciate the way that they made us feel as though closing our loan was the most important thing that they had to accomplish for the day.

I have known Jon Maguire for approximately 10 years and he goes above an beyond in educating clients on what to expect. He keeps the agent involved so they'll which direction to take with their clients.I had a closing on 4/6/15 the Stokes weren't familiar with the loan process. Jon sent videos via email to them and told them what to expect. I informed them as well. His service was invaluable. Jon respected us as his clients when the other agent was unethical asking questions that she shouldn't have, and didn't release any confidential information. He has always been someone that I could rely on when referring customers for loan pre-approval.

—Megan Chen

I have been working with ACADEMY for years. At first, I wasn't ready to really purchase a home, but over time, Jon advise to be patient, work on my credit and when I was ready, he would review my status and guide me to getting a home loan when the time was right. Jon Maguire and his staff were very helpful, patient, informative and consistent from day one. Once I was pre-approved, Jon and his team explained to me the next necessary steps to ensure a smooth closing when I found the house I wanted to purchase. Working with Kelly Wilmot was truly a blessing. She knew exactly what was needed, answered all my questions and concerns and was very helpful and knowledgeable with the loan process. Her patience is truly what made the process so much easier. The Jon Maguire Team offered the BEST customer service and held my hand all the way to the closing table. Academy offered small videos during each phase of the loan approval which kept me updated and informed and I enjoyed receiving them in between calls and emails from Jon, Kelly and Jeanie. The Academy Team made me feel connected and I felt at ease working with everyone there.
