I've lived in Idaho since 1994, and enjoy all things outdoors. Fly fishing, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, and back country skiing are the things I love to do the most. McCall and Boise are the hubs from which I begin most of my adventures. What I love about being a Loan Officer is helping people to achieve the American Dream. Whether it is buying that 1st home, a vacation home, or an investment property, my goal is always to do the best I can to provide high quality service and the best rates available. I have also been involved in educating the real estate professionals for over 20 years. I specialize in FHA, VA, RD, IHFA and Conventional residential real estate financing.

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

Mike is fabulous. He was so easy to work with, a great communicator, and extremely thorough! From a financing standpoint our home buying experience could not have been easier. Thank you so much, Mike!

—Rachel Holeman

Very fast and quick service, exactly what we wanted. I've worked with other Lenders before, and I felt that I was doing all the work myself. With Academy Mortgage, I really felt like they were one step ahead of me, which is ideal for purchasing my home.

Acadamy Mortgage was very diligent in their work. I remember one night they were up around midnight trying to get work done due to a certain date the house needed to be closed by. Mike Mclean was very personable and was willing to answer questions at any time for my cobuyer and me.

—Pearson Morgan

A comprehensive list (outside of emails) of all the documents potentially needed and a general time frame for when they are needed would be useful.

—Olivia Poland

As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and weren’t super educated about the process. Mike was so patient and gracious through the whole process. We never felt dumb or intimidated, he clearly explained everything to us and was always quick to answer our questions and help us understand new developments. Can not express our gratitude enough!

—John Hosmer
