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.

Academy Mortgage Loan Officer Specialist, Tamera Cooper. She is very knowledgeable and sharp. She listens and has a willingness to help. She takes the stress out of those somewhat stressfull moments during the loan process. Thanks Tamera.

—Cindy Jones

Tamara Cooper is ABSOLUTELY the best lender ever! I highly recommend her to everyone

—Michelle Jordan

Our loan officer was nice, but I feel that when errors were made she did not take responsibility for her part that she played in those errors. As a person who is not in this kind of financing I don't know the answers and I depend on my financial officer to know and guide me in the best way possible. I feel when that did not happen the blame was put on me rather than her understanding her errors and how she can improve in the future.

—Casey Davenport
