The excitement to have a place to call home was huge! we came upon Academy Mortage which was the door to heaven for us. Sure, it was complicated and at times we felt like backing up but the staff there motivated us to proceed and here we are. We are at a place called home.

—Dalio

It was very professional and fast.

Dawn, Russ, and Melinda are an excellent team to having working for you. They were very understanding and went out of their way to explain things to us, even when we were getting frustrated. I felt like they really cared about us getting the home we wanted, and worked hard to get our loan approved.

I have always had good transactions with Academy Mtg and their loan officers. They have always communicated well through out the transaction.

Just keep doing what they're doing. Russell and Dawn Svoboda are amazing and communicate honestly, unlike some other lenders. Honesty, integrity, communication and going that extra step to help the client. My client didn't have a computer so no email. Because one of the buyer's was elderly and not able to get around well, Russ went to their home numerous times to get paperwork signed and to collect information and explain things to them. I've never dealt with a lender that caring and helpful. He was amazing.
