Welcome!

Natalie is a 3rd generation Fort Collins Native, may have been destined to the mortgage business by taking that first loan processing position shortly after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of New Mexico. Natalie’s Mother and Mother-in-Law were both 25+ year Mortgage Loan Officer veterans and she learned very early on that hard work, attention to detail, and providing your clients with excellent customer service were all keys to a successful loan transaction.

Natalie started from the ground up in the mortgage industry, first as a Loan Processor; then as a Mortgage Originator for a national new construction builder for 9 years where she was licensed in 13 states; to working in a prominent national Bank as the sole mortgage provider in one of the busiest branches in Colorado.

Natalie’s determination, extensive experience and well rounded knowledge of mortgage lending have helped her earn tremendous accolades since 2000. “Employee of the year, President’s Club, Top Gun and National Achiever” are all designations that Natalie has received for her exemplary skills as a Mortgage Loan Officer and her commitment to customer service.

A Message from Natalie:
My primary responsibility as your Loan Officer is to make sure that you are prepared for the mortgage process. Preparation includes making loan recommendations that suit your needs now and/or in the future depending on your goals; preparing you with a preapproval vs a prequalification; and ultimately guiding you thru the loan process from start to finish. The early years in my career I spent as a Loan Processor working with underwriters, closers, and appraisers that shaped the conscientious, diligent, and communicative Loan Officer I am today. I understand the full inner workings on a loan from an operations stand point to get a Buyer, Seller, and their Real Estate Agents to the closing table smoothly and efficiently.
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. It’s all about service at Academy Mortgage, and our company has been meeting the needs of homebuyers across the United States since 1988. 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 also understand that time is of the essence when looking to place an offer on a home therefore I make myself available and invite you to contact me after hours and on the weekends.

Academy made this such a positive experience! It could have been SO hard doing everything across the country, but Natalie and her team were AMAZING and took all of the stress and anxiety out of the equation. They did everything they could to accommodate the needs of this transaction even though there were special stipulations with the city and the property. It was really a good experience!

Natalie Thomas, my loan officer, was amazing throughout this process! Her level of knowledge and expertise was such an asset. Due to being self-employed for only a couple of years, I wasn’t sure I could qualify for a loan, but she made it all happen. Friendly, personable, but also so professional. On top of that, we closed early! I never thought I would be excited about this part of the house buying process. I will only use Academy Mortgage in the future!

One of the big reasons I chose Academy in the first place was b/c of how comfortable I felt talking with Natalie about the loan process. I really felt she went above and beyond by responding to texts and emails at all hours of the day, and even going out of her way to get me reimbursed when an added cost popped up from the title company.
