I'm an Idaho native, born and raised in rural Caldwell. Helping Idahoans obtain home ownership, and new Idaho residents buy their piece of Idaho, is my passion. I love the state we call Idahome!

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.

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.

Home Mortgage Tools

This calculator computes the payments (principal and interest), based on home price, down payment, and other factors.

How much mortgage might I qualify for?

This calculator computes the finance amount, based on income, expenses, credit rating, and other factors.

How much home can I afford?

This calculator computes the most expensive house you can buy, based on the highest payment you can afford.

How much will I save by increasing my mortgage payment?

Increasing your payment will reduce the principal on your mortgage, the total amount of interest you’ll pay, and the number of payments.
