I love coming to the office! I love what I do! My TEAM and I are very blessed to help great clients everyday with the opportunity to purchase, build or refinance their homes in all of Utah or Idaho. We take pride in handling each loan quickly, competently, and with the meticulous attention and integrity it deserves. My goal is to help you achieve financial goals that will benefit you for years to come. When you are considering building, purchasing, or refinancing a home, the company you choose can make a difference – because it’s not just a mortgage. To us, a home is a place where dreams are born and memories are made.

Academy Mortgage has been meeting the needs of homebuyers since 1988. I love working here because of its strong reputation for integrity-based mortgage lending, its unwavering commitment to responsible lending practices, and 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, closing, and funding are handled locally. As a result we have a proven track record of closing loans as quickly and efficiently as possible.

I look forward to assisting you with the step-by-step process to owning that perfect home. Please feel free to call me with any questions you may have.

I appreciate and value the confidence and friendship from each and every client. “Because people are more valuable than money.”

For the most part I loved our experience with Academy Mortgage except for having to extend our closing date out a week. I don't know whose fault it was but Trudi did everything she could to make it right and got us same day funding so that pretty much made up for it. I would recommend Trudi to anyone looking to buy a home.

Our experience in refinancing our home was nothing less than outstanding. From the moment we first contacted Academy to the day of closing, we felt like we mattered. There was constant communication, explanations and care of our well being. Raulon Vantassell was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. With his encouragement and suggestions, we were able to close in a little over a month from start to finish. Trudi Hatch was also very helpful and helped move the process along. We were glad for the videos that explained exactly what would happen. We would highly recommend Academy Mortgage for anyone looking to purchase or refinance a home.
