My name is Kim Magoon Somaini, and I joined Academy in 2018 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.

Academy is a direct lender, which means that my Barre, Vermont Branch and New England 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.

Personally, I am a Barre resident and 20+ year veteran of the mortgage industry, the majority of which at a local Vermont credit union helping countless clients finance their dream homes. My husband and I have 4 children between the two of us, also a daughter-in law and son in-law and 3 grandsons. Our daughter is soon to be expecting our first granddaughter in August and we are very excited!

Joining all of us are an energetic German Shepherd, a donkey named Jerome, and a Fresian horse named Thora. I am a certified dog groomer for fun on my weekends, and was the first ever female president of the Barre Lions Club. Now just a member, I love being involved in my community and my children's lives.

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