Integrity is the cornerstone of my business. I believe a mortgage should be about building relationships and helping my customers achieve their home financing goals, not just a transaction. As an Academy Mortgage Loan Officer, I take a consultative approach to the home loan process by customizing each home financing solution to help customers achieve their home financial goals. I have surrounded myself with a wealth of talent that will ensure your loan gets the attention necessary to close in this historic and difficult mortgage environment.
I moved to Utah in 1989 from the beautiful state of Vermont where I attended the University of Vermont and graduated from the school of business in 1988. I fell in love with the outdoor activities that Utah presented and knew this was the place I wanted to live and raise my family. I have since helped hundreds of families create a home in what I feel is one of the best places to live and play in the United States. My team and I look forward to the opportunity to assist you in creating a place to call home.

We have worked with Pete and Academy Motgage for multiple properties. It has always been a great experience and we would recommend them to anyone needing a mortgage!
Pete does it again! 2nd montage with him and absolutely blown away by his thoroughness and dedication to ensure a comfortable and easy process.
The only thing that I would have preferred to see differently was the first time homebuyer online course that we were required to take. That information wasn’t sent to us until less than a week before closing. The information was really good and would have been much more helpful when we were first applying for home loans instead of preparing to close on a home.
Pete was great and everyone on the team was helpful with the document scavenger hunt that is getting a mortgage.
Amazing. Pete took such great care to ensure that my client had all questions answered in a timely manner. He took his customer service above and beyond what was expected.

We worked with Pete Jacob for approximately 3 months beginning in late 2011 and coming to a close in February of 2012. Pete was integral in guiding my wife and I through a complex process leading up to the successful purchase of our new home. He provided information that was insightful and delivered with confidence and clarity. He is someone I have, and will, refer to any one in the market for a mortgage or refinance. Please consider this a resounding endorsement of Mr. Jacob.
—Chris and Amy
I had a very smooth and pleasant experience. Pete is very thorough and organized. I highly recommend him and will definitely come back for my next loan.
—Bamidele Faboyede, Client
Pete and Robyn were both very upfront and honest. I never felt in the dark about the status of my loan. Both were very friendly and understanding. Would recommend them both to anyone who asks.
Thanks for everything you did!
—William J Tugaw
During my home buying process I was referred to Pete Jacob with Academy Mortgage from my real-estate agent. This was absolutely THE BEST advice my agent gave me throughout the entire process. Pete was incredibly informative and helpful. A true professional. Absolutely 10/10 service. I will be sending all mortgage referrals to Pete Jacobs after this experience. Thank you for all of your support and for your time. You are very much appreciated.
—Nathanial Shultz, Client
Being new to Utah we were nervous about the buying process and what we needed to get through the process. Pete and his team were great. They made the process very easy to understand. Communication was great and extremely timely. I will always recommend Academy Mortgage as they prove to be a trustworthy company.
—Ryan Hobbs, Client
Pete Jacob and Robyn Kent were in constant communication with my client and myself. Pete helped brainstorm ideas that helped with negotiations on our client's behalf. Robyn kept me informed and updated even late into the evening hours. Pete and Robyn were always available to take my call and my client's call.
Pete was very helpful in finding ways to make my refi work.
—Cathy Van Dyke, Client
Pete Jacob has been an amazing asset for us and likely for your company over the years. He was able to get us into a lower rate than before and for low costs.
—Thomas Martens, Client
Pete and Robyn were great to work and did everything perfectly
—Jeremy Haslam, Client
Pete was excellent to work with and consistently went above expectation.
Pete and his team were able to make things happen for my client in about 20 days. This was important for us to hit our aggressive timetable. My clients were very happy with the results and service and so was I.

Pete Jacob was amazing! Seemless experience.
Pete Donna and Ady were fantastic to work with. Everything went smoothly and I always felt like things were being taken care of. Pete and his team are top notch.
—Kimberly Petersen, Client
Pete Jacob and his entire team have helped me with the loan process multiple times. Each time they were attentive to my needs, communicated in a timely and professional manner. Pete went out of his way to make sure I understood the process and that I was comfortable with the terms of the loan. I would highly recommend Pete Jacob and Academy mortgage to anyone in the market for a home loan.
Pete and Steve made the whole experience seem less. Could not have asked for a better experience. All my friends would be highly encouraged by my wife and I to go with Pete!
Pete was great. He was always available to help us answer our questions and got back with us promptly.
—Michelle Fordham, Client
Absolutely love working with Pete and his team
I had to do a homeowners course and I wish I would have known about it earlier in the process. By the time I completed the course a lot of the information was not helpful because I had already completed the majority of the home buying process.
Pete was great to work with, he answered my many questions and gave me options to set me up for the future. He cared more about making sure I was comfortable rather than just making the sale to go with Acadamy.
I worked with Pete Jacobs and he was great and easy to work with, always there to answer any questions I had and got back to me everytime he said he would. It was a great experience and would recommend him for any future loan needs to my family and friends.
—Erika Munoz, Client
We loved working with Pete and Academy Mortgage. He was very helpful, kind, and answered all of our questions thoroughly. He pre-approved us quickly and met all of our deadlines.
—Devin Moray, Client
Buying a home can be a terrifying experience, but with Pete's guidance and reassurance I felt confident in my decision. His execution of the process was free of the horror stories and hang ups I usually hear when others relate the story of financing/purchasing a home.
—Morgan Shepher, Client
Everyone was great and made the process very easy
—Justin Cote, Client
It was so nice they put up with me at my worst and always reassured me and communicated
—Adam Westbroek, Client
Pete and Robyn were great to work with! This was my first home purchase and they explained everything in great detail, were very responsive, and overall a great team to work with. Couldn't imagine a better experience!
Met the closing date set by the new home construction company that wanted us to use their in-house lender. Regular updates from Pete - Awesome!
—Chase Heninger, Client
Love working wit Pete Jacob.
Pete was very helpful, he walked me through the whole process and answered every question I had in great depth. I really appreciated someone who knew so much and took the time to explain everything I needed/ wanted to know more about to me.
—Kathleen Millar, Client
Great people. Pete Jacob highly effective and kept in constant touch. He helped to keep us calm during what would have otherwise been a stressful period.
Pete and Robyn went above and beyond. Robyn was willing to get our approval letter ready last minute in order to get our offer in on our house. Pete helped us fix an error on our credit report. The team was willing to move up our closing.
—Tyler Andrus, Client
We were looking for a good company/person to help us refinance our mortgage in late 2012. We discovered Pete Jacob that not only helped us refinance at the best rate available, but became a good friend during the process! Even after closing our refinance, Pete continues to keep us informed and update on all current financial and mortgage information available. We recommend Pete's friendly, professional personality, expert mortgage advice to all our friends and even those we just meet! Thanks to Pete, our future financial picture is bright and we look forward to a very happy retirement party! Pete, thanks for all you did for and with us and that winning smile is always there to remind us of your commitment to outstanding friendly service.
—Les & Therry
Everyone did an amazing job in all aspects of the mortgage process.
Pete did great and gave me lots of great advise with my current and previous loan situation .
—Jared Caldiero, Client
There were a few issue at the 11th hour that were out of his control. He managed the issues and we closed.
It was so great and absolutely no stress experience to work with Pete. Every thing moved so smoothly from day 1 until closing. I will always come back to work with Pete again in the future. I highly recommended academy Mortgage.
Pete is amazing. He went above and beyond for us. I would recommend him to anoyone!
Very easy and smooth. They helped us get everything needed to fund our purchase.
—Spencer Shumway, Client
Pete made himself available on a short notice during the weekend to walk us through the paperwork and provide us with pre-approval. He was available at all time, be it personally or one of the employees from his office. Pete was very patient in explaining the process and answering our questions. We were able to close on the property within the agreed upon deadlines. Even after closing, Pete is available to answer any questions we may have.
Our experience was very smooth. The people at Academy are responsive, knowledgeable and willing to assist any way possible.
Pete was great to work with throughout the loan process. From the first steps until closing he was extremely helpful and professional. He really went above and beyond helping my wife and me get a loan, and with making the loan process as easy and painless as possible.
This is my second time working with Pete Jacobs. The first time was excellent and this time was even better. The process was seamless and painless. It would be an honor to work with him, and his team, again in the future.
Pete is a straight shooter and does what he says he is going to do. Doesn't make claims that he can't keep just to get business but takes the conservative approach so that he can exceed he his clients expectations every time. Honest, Fast & Fair.
—Greg Hancock, Realtor

The knowledge and expertise greatly exceeded my expectations. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the home buying process was!
—Jay - Borrower
You’re the best.
Pete was GREAT!!!! He worked with us for over a year getting our credit inline to buy our first house. Everyone we worked with was very prompt with returning emails and phone calls and never left any questions unanswered. Would definitely recommend Academy to anyone even thinking about buying a house.
—Christopher Meisner, Client
Pete was willing to shoot for a 3ish week close. In the end the house ended up taking much longer than that to finish but he was the only one willing to get it done in the time frame I had. Pete was always prompt to respond to emails, and was usually available to talk to in person.
—Andrew Gray, Client
Pete and Robyn make an excellent team! Great communication, honest feedback and prompt responses.
Pete was great and worked with me to understand buying points and interest rate cost benefit analysis
Pete and his team was awesome to work with. All responded quickly to all my questions and concerns.
—Devalene Otukolo, Client
Pete was a tremendous help making the refinancing process painless.
—Jennifer McNatt, Client
Pete Jacob is a true professional and it is always a pleasure working with him. We wouldn’t even think of going anywhere else!
Pete was an exceptional loan officer, who took the time to ensure we understood all the steps we would be taking through out the process. He also made sure we got the loan we were hoping to get, at a great interest rate. Not only was he great to work with due to his skills as a loan officer, but he was also very personable and made sure to spend the time to know us personally. I would recommend Pete to anyone I know that is looking to buy a home as well as use him again in the future when we decide to move again.
—Daniel Woehl, Client
Academy is on top of the process from start to finish! Easy, reliable, and efficient!
Pete Jacob made this transaction possible with his creative solutions and relationships in the industry. We had very tough headwinds breaking into a difficult market, and Pete set us up for success, and worked hard to get the deal go through. We're thrilled and will be recommending Pete to friends.
—Daniel Bogardus, Client
Great experience. Thank you!
Pete, Steve and the team worked hard to make sure we got a great deal and that everything moved smoothly through the entire process.
Pete was amazing. Always available to answer any questions I had.
—Chris Mueller, Client
Pete is always thorough and pleasant to work with. He created a flawless transition both on my first home purchase 9 years ago and our second home purchase that we just closed on. Our title company said that “ this is some of the lowest closing costs they have seen on a home purchase this large.” I appreciate he and Robyn’s time and effort towards helping us with our next step in life.
—Kelcie Babcock, Client
It's hard for me to say that Academy Mortgage won my business, because it was really Pete that won my business. Pete was extremely easy to work with, answered any question I had, kept me informed and made sure I got the best financing to meet my needs. Pete's team that supported him was also top notch. Prior to this transaction, I had a real estate purchase transaction that fell through with another provider. I voiced these concerns with Pete and he instilled confidence with me throughout the entire process. This was invaluable to me. I would (and already have) recommend Pete in a heartbeat to anyone needing financing for a home. He can help you regardless of where you are in the home buying process. Thanks for everything, Pete!
—Wendy Stein, Client
Pete and Steve were very thorough in their explanation of the home buying process. For a first time homebuyer, I am amazed at how smoothly everything went.
My experience with Pete Jacob was a very positive one--from start to finish. He is well organized, totally professional, and extremely customer-service oriented. I felt confident he was giving our mutual clients advice they could rely on. I very much appreciated the fact that he kept me informed on a step-by-step basis throughout the entire transaction, and I am looking forward to opportunities to work with him in the future!
—Kerry Jones, Realtor
Pete was essential to us receiving our house. If it wasn't for him, I don't think we would have won the bid and even if we did it would have been extremely difficult to close without his vast knowledge and expertise. If I ever plan to sell and buy another home I will definitely use Pete every time.
—Aliree Ragan, Client
Pete and Robyn were there every step of the way and always willing to answer my questions as this was my first home purchase. It was smooth, there were very matter-of-fact with all the paperwork I needed to provide and didn't pull any fast ones out of the hat. Open and thorough communication. And they were excited for me and helpful with every piece of the process.
Pete and his team were the most amazing mortgage people I have ever known. They did absolutely everything in their power to get me into my beautiful new home. I needed this home desperately for my granddaughter ( she lives with me) and they understood how important this was and made it happen. I will be eternally grateful to Academy and especially Pete for all the care, devotion and time they spent working their magic. Anna and I could not be happier. We love our home. Thank you a million times over!!
—Nancy Stratton, Client
Pete and Steve were wonderful! We have worked with them in the past and were 100% satisfied. We have and will always call Pete first for any mortgage needs we have.
Our service from Academy exceeded our expectations, and we would return for future services.
—Christopher Weesner, Client
Pete, Robyn, and the rest of the team were excellent to work with. Great communication throughout the entirety of the process. Would definitely recommend and use again.
Thank you, Pete and Steve for everything. I felt so supported during such a stressful time of purchasing my first house. Pete took the time to walk through every piece of paperwork I needed to sign, and made sure I understood everything throughout the entire process. I can’t express how grateful I am to have had Pete and Steve’s guidance throughout this process.
