It’s all about service at Academy Mortgage, and our company has been meeting the needs of homebuyers across the United States since 1988. 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.

Since joining Academy, I have helped many individuals and families attain the dream of homeownership. Whether you want to buy a new home or refinance an existing mortgage, I will provide a customized solution for you at competitive rates. No brokering, no middleman, no hassle, no surprises.

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 will be in control of your loan file from start to finish, and I will be up—to—date on the status of your loan at all times. I understand the importance of maintaining continuous communication throughout the loan process and commit to providing you accurate, timely, and honest mortgage advice.

I invite you to put us to the test. Let me show you how simple and easy securing a mortgage can be.

Our loan experience was positive throughout the process. The people we worked with were always very positive and provided excellent customer service. We had to work most of the process remotely from another state and the instructions were always clear and to the point. We are pleased with the Academy experience!!

Samantha is awesome! She made sure I always knew where things were and what we were waiting for, she was very responsive and always responded quickly to any questions, she provided all the information needed, and even stepped up to provide clear instructions when the title company failed to do so. I always felt like I was in the loop and was being taken care of well. Samantha provided excellent service and there really is nothing I could complain about!
