Robert has been a good friend for many years. When I finally decided to move my family and I back into the San Antonio area, Robert was the first person I reached out to. Not only did he put me in contact with the best Realtors, but he personally handled all the details of my mortgage while starting a new job. His follow up and communication were way above par and I recommend his services!

—Neil P

Robert Rees and team were outstanding! Will recommend and use his services again in any future purchases!

—Shannon Klump

Robert and his team are a great group of people that work really hard to help the client understand the process of purchasing a loan. Great communication from the beginning to the end of the process.

—Leticia Perez

Robert was great from the beginning of the loan process to the end. The loan documentation was completed a week before the close date. There were no surprises because of the excellent communication between Robert and his team

—Eric Barr

Robert has gone above and beyond in assisting my clients with their home purchases. He is professional, compassionate and just as excited as my clients are through the whole process.

—CC McCarter

When Robert said he would do everything possible to get my loan closed on short notice long distance, he far exceeded his words. Wish the furniture had arrived as nicely as the loan process. Highest recommendation for Robert Rees and Academy, wonderful experience!

—Nancy Lee

I was introduced to Robert Rees by one of my clients as their preferred lender. After working with Robert, I can see why they chose him. He is in constant communication with everyone involved in the transaction making it go smoothly and ALWAYS on time! Robert is a man of his word!

A month and a half ago I was told I had to evacuate my rental house because the owner wanted to move back. I was devastated and felt hopeless trying to find another rental. Rental after rental just upset me because I couldn't find what I was looking for in my price range. Then my agent mentioned buying vs renting. I thought there was no way I could close on a house by the end of June in order to move out by July 1st. That's when I spoke to Robert Reese. He assured me he could make it happen. Not only did Robert get me out earlier than expected, he also got me a grant for all of my closing costs. Being a single mother I didn't want to have to pay a lot of up front costs and luckily for me Robert made that happen. He informed me every week, sometimes daily, on where my loan process was at the moment. He also called me to reassure me that everything was going well and he didn't see any issues. I've heard so many horror stories about buyi ng a house but I must have won the lottery when I met Robert. He made the impossible happen for me! Thank you very much! I have already recommended Academy Mortgage to my friends who are looking to buy a home soon. Thanks for such an easy and smooth buying process!

—Nicole Krueger

Robert Reese helped me so much I am forever grateful for him, he is very thorough, great service, friendly, honest and extremely knowledgeable! He is just all around an awesome person working with him was one of the best decisions , I truly felt that I had a friend who was looking out for me and my best interest through the process of purchasing my first home. Thank you Robert Reese!!

—Georgette Romero

As my first home buying experience I don't think the bar could be set much higher than it was using Robert Rees and Academy Mortgage. Everything was done before I expected it done, and I felt comfortable through the whole process.

—Evan McCullen

Robert genuinely cares about the clients. He consistently communicated with the buyers and realtor.

I had the BEST First Time Home Buyer experience with Robert Rees - Academy Mortgage! I looked into purchasing a house back in January with Quicken Loans, and they just gave me the run around for weeks and weeks, and so I contacted Robert, he is so engaged in his work that he will go up and beyond to help people out! Before Robert even knew me, he was so persistent (which is good) for me to send over all my paperwork so he could start the process. I received more out of Robert in 2-3 days than I did 2 months with Quicken Loans. Robert and his crew (Lisa) work amazing together. We emailed on a Daily basis, and kept me up to date on everything happening. If I could, I would go buy another house just to have Robert and his crew help me again, they took the stress levels down for me as a first time home buyer. I felt so much at ease! So I recommend and encourage anyone out there who is looking to buy a house in Texas to please contact Robert Rees - Academy Mortgage in San Antonio! He will do his absolute best to get what you want and deserve!!!! Thank you Robert and his crew for everything you all have done to make my dreams come true!!!

How would I describe Robert Rees at Academy Mortgage San Antonio? A miracle worker! After being declined by our bank of many years TWO DAYS before closing, our realtor recommended we give Robert a call, saying he had "done amazing things" before with some of her previous clients. Boy was she right! In three weeks time Robert took us step by step from being declined to closing on the home of our dreams! He convinced all sellers involved that we were worth the risk and that he was confident in our worthiness of a home loan. He held our hand through the whole process and was always available to us. We were tickled when he called us "team" and appreciated his sense of humor and his confidence! We highly recommend Robert Rees for any mortgage loan needs. Thanks again, Robert!

Thank you Academy Mortgage. This is my second time purchasing a home but the first dealing with Academy Mortgage and I have to say Robert and his team provided my family with the best customer service and the highest level of professionalism I have ever experienced!! Your services are highly recommended by me to anyone looking to purchase a home. I can honestly say I had 100% confidence and a smile on my face from pre-approval to close thanks to Robert! I can't thank you guys enough.

—Corey L

Working with Robert Rees and his team was a pleasure, and everything was always done very professional.

—Burlon Richey

Robert went above and beyond in getting our mortgage processed and getting us closed on time. When our original mortgage lender dropped the ball on our mortgage, we turned to Robert for help. We were scheduled to close in less than 3 weeks and not only did Robert get everything taken care of in time, he was in constant contact letting us know exactly where everything was at any given time. We wish we would have started this process with Robert in the first place, but are more than happy that we were able to finish the deal with Robert's help. Our Realtor was also very impressed by Robert's communication and attention to detail. Thanks Robert!

With the changes in the mortgage process since the last time we purchased a home, the process of qualifying, underwriting and closing looked like an insurmountable task. Robert and the Academy team broke the process down into manageable steps and walked us through the entire process from application to closing. Robert gave us 'homework assignments' to complete early in the process to gather tax returns, 1099's, bank statements, and all other relevant financial documentation that would be crucial for underwriting our loan well before we even made an offer on our new home. In addition, Robert was in constant communication with our realtor, Title Company, Relocation Company, and corporate HR contact to gather any needed documentation and ensure they were providing needed information in a timely fashion. Our closing went off without a hitch due to Robert being in communication with the Title Company Escrow Officer during closing. Closing was quick and painless.

—Desmond Rees

We met Robert 3 years ago and recently reconnected with him for our mortgage needs. We went back to Robert because he deals with us personally and made us feel like we could buy a home.

—Ely Rodriguez
