A 1st CHOICE Opportunity Awaits at Academy Mortgage

Academy Mortgage invites performance- and purchase-driven Loan Officers to join in our mission to be the 1st CHOICE home loan lender in the industry.

We are a purchase-focused, relationship-building, and customer-experience company with a unique corporate culture. As a large company, we are financially strong and able to provide you with a vast number of origination, sales, marketing, compliance, and other resources and tools. Yet we still maintain the agility, flexibility, and sense of family you would expect of a small company.

As family, we take care of our Loan Officers at Academy and we care about your success. Every system and process is designed to support you in building your business and achieving your goals.

Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what a few of our producers have to say about working with Academy.


James Nesbit, Tumswater, WA

“I’ve been in the business for 20 years and have gone through four different company acquisitions, most recently Academy Mortgage’s acquisition of Republic Mortgage Home Loans' assets. Change is hard, and I was nervous about the move, but I can honestly say that my transition to Academy was the smoothest by far.

“I chose to work at Republic Mortgage because I wanted to be affiliated with a smaller lender that allowed for your own decision-making. Despite being a larger company, I have found this flexibility at Academy, as well as lots of support from management, marketing, and operations. We have 30% more programs and products at Academy than we did at Republic, and the pricing is extremely competitive for my marketplace. I have also picked up referral partners simply because of the unique technology at Academy.

“As a result of the systems that Academy offers, I surpassed my production for all of one year in just seven months at Academy. If you are looking to build your business, Academy has the platforms to ensure you will succeed.”


Charadie Finkle, Colorado Springs, CO

“Academy Mortgage truly stands behind its values. The Academy Team has proven to me time and time again that when promises are made, they are kept. It has amazed me that at a company this size, I have a voice. I have found that even though they don’t always agree with me, the Executive Team still provides support and empowers my vision. I could not have grown my business from Rookie of the Year in 2012 to Top 1% Mortgage Originator in 2015 without Academy. My success is a direct result of ‘low-maintenance for the Loan Officer’ marketing tools and a united, sales-minded operations staff.”


Sam Rosenblatt, Glen Burnie, MD

“Academy Mortgage provides me with local operations, in-house processing, common-sense underwriting, and hassle-free appraisal management. Even though Academy is a large, national firm, it has the flexibility to adapt, allowing me to operate in a way that benefits me, my customers, and the company as a whole. Work is no longer a fire drill. My loans close quickly and on time. This enables me to enjoy my growing family.”


Deb Lapierre, Gilbert, AZ

“Being a part of Academy Mortgage has been life-changing, both personally and professionally. From the top executive leadership to local management, there is a sense of family and that your personal and professional well-being matters. As an organization, we care about one another, the clients who we serve, the communities that we live in, and the business relationships that rely on our services. I’m proud to be part of Academy and the important work that we do.”
