He is willing to work with clients over the long haul to correct negative credit issues and advise them on what to do and when to do it. One of the recent closings had been slowly moving ahead for at least 3 years and another for almost the same period of time. The client always felt that Ray was their loan officer because he maintained contact and showed inordinate patience with their situations. Thanks.
Ray and his team were very helpful made it simple and we would and will recommend them to everyone.

When I referred my soon to be Son in Law to Ray Ochoa I could not have been more impressed. Ray was Professional in all aspects of the transaction. Ray made Albert feel like he was a person not a child or a number. For that I will refer everyone to Ray and Derek at Academy Mortgage.
My wife and I had lost our home four years ago and we did not think we.would be able to purchase a home again but academy mortgage helped and advised us on how to rebuild our credit and got us the right loan. Thank You again Ray Ochoa and The Academy Mortgage Team
There was no worry about getting approved for the loan or on the day I wished to close. I will be recommending this company to others I know moving to the area.
I am only as good as the people that surround me. I have chosen Ray Ochoa and Academy Mortgage as my primary lender. They have never let me down and my clients have made a new friend.
