—Celina Castro

Just an issue with the closing disclosure at the end. While we did receive it on time, the actual CD presented during signing was different than that was presented 3 days earlier. This is frustrating as the changes were not communicated and I felt the whole purpose of a CD was pointless if it was to be changed w/ out our awareness at signing.

—James Guan

The team of Craig, Liz and Janet exceeded our expectations as far as communication and closing quickly. A stress free process for a somewhat more complicated loan, as far as rentals, and a subordination. Thank You.....

The process was great! Liz was quick to respond and stayed in contact with important updates.

—Celina Castro

Overall this was a good experience as a first time home buyer. There were times when communication between the various people working on our loan seemed to be missing and there were multiple requests from different people for the same documents I had already sent. There's a lot to keep organized but I was surprised by the number of repeat requests.

—Frank Devine

Liz Bushman was awesome... Was like sitting down with someone we already knew... Easy to talk to

—Craig Wiener

As a real estate broker I have discovered that this industry tends to rely on the efforts of others ie, mortgage, escrow etc. Working in concert to present the finished product to the buyer can be difficult at best. It has been my pleasure to discover Academy Mortgage and it’s branch manager Ms.Liz Bushman who endeavors towards zero defects in all that she does. Not only have I found a first rate lender and a great friend but one who has an outstanding understanding of the concept of customer relations. Liz is as unique as she is rare. It can be guaranteed that Liz and her team at Academy Mortgage endeavors towards perfection with an eye towards what’s best for the client. Liz gets it done right the first time. I would highly recommend Liz Bushman for all your financial needs. You will be glad you did.

— Nikki Hoar

I give a perfect 10 to Academy Mortgage especially to Liz Bushman and Amanda Aviles who helped my from start to finished. They made everything so smooth throughout the course of my home buying and kept the communications open and transparent. I would use AMC in the future if I need another loan. And I will also recommend AMC to my friend and families. Thank you LIz and Amanda

Liz was amazing. My other Homes For Heroes loan officer that I was paired up with, did not fulfill my expectations. Upon getting my loan officers switched, Homes For Heroes told me I will be working with Liz. I knew from that moment everything I worried about would go away. I have many years in mortgage banking experience so my expectations are really high. From the moment we spoke, I knew I was with the right person. She is sweet, honest, efficient and was always there for me when I needed her. My clients are happy, I am happy and I have already informed her that I will refer all my business to her. She is amazing and a true asset to your company. Thank you Liz!

—Rena Mughadam

Every time I call they have the right answer

—Cesar Posada

As first time homebuyers, we couldn't have asked for a better team to guide us along the way. The customer service received from Liz from the onset was beyond what we could have expected and what mattered most to us. Getting in touch with Liz was such a breeze and not only did she answer every question, she educated us which means so much more - and so quickly! The lines of communication and turn around times were excellent. We completely trust Liz and Academy and will refer our family and friends to no one else!

—Tiffany Perez

Overall we received excellent assistance all around! Great communication, quick responses, and on top of it.

—Luis Roger Galvez-Montes De Oca
