I’m Wane Workman, a producing Branch Manager at the Salt Lake City Center Branch with Academy Mortgage. I feel fortunate and blessed to have been originating home loans for 19 years. I joined Academy Mortgage in 2008 and have been a President's Club Top Producing Loan Officer for 11 out of 13 years.

I realize that purchasing or refinancing a home is one of the largest financial investments most people will make in their entire life. Your questions about the right mortgage loan for you are important to mem My goal is to educate you and ensure you are given the opportunity to obtain the right mortgage for your unique and specific financial needs. Most consumers are "sold" a mortgage rather than receiving quality mortgage planning assistance or advice.

I realize you have options when selecting your mortgage company and loan officer. Here are a handful of reasons why I hope you will consider me for your mortgage lending needs:

•I thoroughly enjoy helping people realize the dream of sustainable homeownership. There is nothing more fulfilling than watching the happiness of families and first-time homebuyers as they secure a new home. This desire to help people get into homes led me to this career and keeps me excited to go to work every day.

•I realize the benefits of homeownership in our community. I was born and raised throughout Utah and currently live in Bountiful with my wife and three children. Bringing homeownership to my neighbors and friends solidifies our communities and revitalizes our neighborhoods.

•I know this business. My particular areas of expertise are Conventional, FHA, USDA, VA, and Jumbo Loans. I graduated from the University of Utah with a bachelor’s degree in finance. With my experience and Academy’s broad array of mortgage solutions to choose from, I will make every effort to find the right loan program and pricing for your situation.

•I will be in control of your loan file from start to finish. Our Salt Lake City Center Branch is equipped to complete the entire loan process in-house—all loan processing, underwriting, closings, and funding are handled in our local office. As a result, we have a proven track record of closing loans as quickly and efficiently as possible, and I will keep you in the loop from start to finish.

•I will quickly, accurately, and honestly, answer your questions. I understand the importance of maintaining continuous communication throughout the loan process and commit to providing you accurate, timely, and relevant mortgage advice.

•I love being affiliated with Academy Mortgage. Academy is an integrity-based mortgage banker. We do what we say we will do. Our company is also respected nationwide for its unwavering commitment to responsible lending practices. It is of utmost importance to me that I protect my borrowers and safeguard their financial wellness for many years to come.

These are just a few of the reasons why I invite you to contact me today to see how I can meet your mortgage lending needs. I am available to assist you whenever it is convenient for you.

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

Working with Wane and Academy was a breeze. I always looked forward to the email videos. The videos really helped me understand exactly what was happening during every step of the process.

—Braden Thompson

I could not speak more highly of this company Wane Workman and all of the people that worked on my loan. It was fast simple and even without a realtor they helped me understand the entire process. No matter the question Wane answered quickly and simply. I would use Academy again in a heart beat.

—Jacob Hardy

Wane was able to help us when we needed it most and was honest and kept his word. Results were quicker than any one I've ever used before. Thank you so much!

—Shane Esplin

Being a first time home buyer I had many questions on how everything worked and academy mortgage and my agent, Wane Workman, provided answers to all my questions quickly and with Understanding. He got me the current average rate that I could get even though I had limited credit history.

—Jared Sealy

Great customer service. My questions were answered promptly and courteously. The whole transaction was handled with great efficiency and professionalism.

—Stacey Morgan

I had tried other mortgage lenders but others just didn't measure up. They wouldn't get back to me, they wouldn't listen to my opinion or give me advice like Wane did. He was great. He was helpful and very responsive. He even agreed to come in and answer his phone on days that he wasn't at work. I had another lender offer a lower interest rate but I felt like Wane was more honest and ethical with the way he handled business.

—Justin Yates

Our son-in-law first recommended us to Wane. He is a realtor and knows who does a good job in helping people get loans. Wane helped us get a loan on a short sale that was a nightmare. We were afraid we were going to have to walk away, but somehow he did it! He has done a refinance and a new home purchase since then. We sure hope we retire before he does!

—Benjamin Morin

Wane Workman was excellent to work with! He and his team were prompt, professional and efficient. I shopped around for the right company to get a mortgage, and I definitely made the right choice with Academy Mortgage. I would highly recommend Wane and Academy Mortgage to anyone looking for a mortgage.

—Rose Cain

Best service I have ever had.. for anything! Wane's level of service felt as if I were his only client! He knows his trade and works for your needs! Not to mention that he is incredibly fast and works at your speed, gladly answering any and all questions you have along the way! I couldn't recommend him enough!

—Steven Davis

Wane Workman takes care of my clients. Once he begins working with them, I no longer worry about his honesty or professionalism. We always close on time, or early. He is very responsive and keeps all participates updated. I recommend him to all of my clients.


Our loan was a hard one and you guys stuck with us and worked through it! It was great to have someone so knowledgeable to help get us in the right direction to be able to purchase a home. Thanks, Timothy Nunes

—Timothy Nunes

Wane is amazing! I know that when he tells me something, I can trust him. He is so knowledgeable and treats everyone like they are important, regardless of their price point. I am very grateful to have him as part of my team, and to be part of his!

—Shelby Palmer- Equity Real Estate

Wane Workman was amazing to work with. He worked from home, during the holidays, and was always professional, yet extremely friendly during our conversations. We appreciated being able to use text, email, and phone calls to take care of 100% of our work with him. My favorite thing about working with Wane, was that he covered our appraisal and credit check up front, then he was reimbursed when we closed. That was a huge risk for him to take! I had back surgery during this whole process, and being during the holidays, it was very convenient for us to not have to worry about the appraisal and credit report fee's. Thank you Wane for everything you did!!! Sandy Hoover is the best realtor out there, and her referral to you, was of course, THE BEST!!!

—Camisha Gollaher

Wane is the best! Thank you so much.

—Bryan Palmer- Equity Real Estate

Wane Workman and his team are some of the best home loan teams we have ever worked with. Wane is always accessible and responsive. He and his team are very professional, informative, and responsive to our clients and always keep us informed throughout the transaction. He listened to our expectations at our first interview with he and his team and he has met and/or exceeded those expectations. They are the best!!

—Sandy Hoover- Golden Spike Realty

I was driving on I 15 in rural Utah when I saw Wane Workman's billboard. I had failed to get a mortgage with another lender so I thought I would give Wane a shot. It took Wane less than a month to get us into our house. Thanks Wane! Regards, Matthew Brewer

—Matthew Brewer

Wane and Sheri are super nice to work with! They get back to you fast and keep you informed throughout the whole process.

This was my second time working with Wane Workman, and just like the first time it was easy and I didn't have any worries. Wane is excellent to work with.

—Joshua Ward

I gave my testimonial on the first page of this survey. As I have worked a long time with Wane workman,and have closed many transactions with him, I have NEVER had a "last minute" surprise. You know, the kind where the terms, or the bottom line changes, or anything that creates anxiety at the closing table. He always keeps my buyers informed clear up to the last day! He is my favorite mortgage officer! Thanks Wane!

Working with Wane was a privilege. The entire process was very smooth and painless. We had a very short time to get the loan processed for closing and Wane met and exceeded the time frame. The loan was ready several days before closing. The communication was easy and efficient. No mistakes were made at any point. 100% recommend Wane and Academy Mortgage. Thank you for your help.

I absolutely LOVE working with Wane and his team! I put 2 homes under contract on the same day. The buyers on this transaction, and one with another lender. This transaction closed 2 weeks ago and the other one is still another week out. I am so grateful for their hard work and the best part is that my clients are happy!

—Shelby Palmer- Equity Real Estate

I was very impressed with how quick and efficient the whole process was. Once I got my paperwork done (which was the only slowdown in the whole process) it seemed like we were being told that we were ready to close!!! We were walked through every step that we needed and it was very easy to get it done when we had tried a couple of times previously going through our banks who just gave us the runaround!!!

—Jonathan Hirschi

In the future we will always bring our business to Academy! Tawni Curtis

I do not feel able to provide names at this time as I may leave someone off and everyone we worked with on the Workman Team was top quality and extremely professional.

If we ever have need again we will be back. Thank you for such a good experience.

My client and I had a great experience. Loan closed ahead of schedule and we were kept updated as to loan status throughout the process.


As first-time homebuyers we have had a lot of questions, and Wane and his team have all been wonderful to work with. We were referred to him and Academy Mortgage by a family member and also by our realtor and we're so grateful for their input. Wane has been excellent to work with, he is efficient and knowledgeable, easy to get a hold of. We have also done nearly everything electronically, so even though we live 90 miles away from their office, it's still been like we're working with someone local. We definitely recommend working with Wane to first-time homebuyers.

I appreciated the automated videos furthering my education and understanding of the loan process. Sincerely, William Cleverly

—William Cleverly

Wane Workman is the epitome of professionalism and competence in the lending industry. Although he is an extremely busy and successful Academy Mortgage Branch Manager, and has a excellent team supporting him, he never delegated his relationship with me (as the Realtor in the transaction), nor that of my clients (the most important people in the transaction). I cannot tell you how unique this business model is in the real estate world. I greatly appreciate Wane's ethic and will refer him again, to my future clients.
