Welcome!

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.

From the beginning to the end, I appreciated my experience with Academy Mortgage. Both Michael & Mike, the loan officer & loan officer assistant, responded to my emails & phone calls for updates & any inquiries I had. That is very appreciated during a real estate transaction since everything is time sensitive.

—Beckett Aguirre

Mike deserves all he gets. He is a performer and will do his best for all of his clients, as well as keeping the person who referred him in the "Loop." Mike comes to our meetings here at Century 21 every other Thursday. He was here when I had one of my clients upset because of the closing costs that a loan officer were expanded. I asked Mike what can be done and within minutes, Mike had a few scenarios drawn up for me to present to my clients. My clients were also upset about callbacks from the loan officer they were currently dealing with. Overall, Mike proved himself to be outstanding and overall "Reachable" for any questions my clients had about their loan. It was a pleasure working with him.

Everyone at Academy was very professional, prompt getting back to us and a pleasure to work with......

—Douglas Andriole

Mike and his team were the most professional, organized, friendly and we had a flawless transaction. I will be using this team again.

—Joseph Burnside

Mike is able to simplify the lending process navigating the ever-changing rules of lending. This is not an easy task. But he can speak to a buyer and put it all together in a matter of minutes. Mike has the ability to save everyone time and money by suggesting the proper course of action to fit the needs to the goal and achieve the best end result.

—Lynn Carlton

Michael Eberhardt was excellent, he constantly communicated with me to make certain I was aware of what was going on. Of course, there was an "issue" with this real estate transaction, (which is a true test of your ability to take care of business). Again, Michael was in constant communication with me & he even "contributed" to the cause to make this deal happen. This was my first transaction with Michael...I have his name in my phone book now!

Great experience, everything went very smoothly from start to finish. When we would hit a roadblock or setback Mike would somehow find a way around it and we kept plugging away til we closed. Would definitely recommend Mike and this company to anyone looking for a mortgage lender. I will be back for more properties in the future.

—William Corey

I had 2 transactions within 2 weeks with 2 different lenders. Both using the Home in 5 with seller concessions. Mikes team had almost half the closing costs of the other lender. That's very cool! Thanks!

Thank you so much Mike and his team at the Academy.

—Fabian Martinez Rico

Mike is great. He is helping me on several transactions and works hard at getting everything done. I will DEFINITELY keep using Mike. Also, know he just opened a new branch, but he still finds the time to get everything done for me and my clients. It's a pleasure to know Mike and to use his services. Mike comes to our meetings here at Century 21 every other Thursday. He was here when I had one of my clients upset because of the closing costs that a loan officer were expanded. I asked Mike what can be done and within minutes, Mike had a few scenarios drawn up for me to present to my clients.
