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.
I was born and raised on a small farm in South Jordan, Utah. I am married with 3 children, 4 horses, 2 dogs, and 2 cats. I believe I’m unusually service minded and very active in local community and church programs – I enjoy offering this same attitude of service to my clients.
Clients have described me as:
• A trusted Mortgage Consultant with 10 years in the business
• Knowledgeable on all the program options available in Utah
• Great at helping people learn and understand their options
• Able to offer some of the lowest rates and fee’s
• A mortgage consultant who genuinely cares about YOUR mortgage process!
During my career I’ve focused heavily on providing better communication than people generally find in this industry. I believe superior communication up-front in the planning and strategy phase eliminates errors, costly surprises and last minute delays typically found in most banks and many mortgage companies.
Continuing communication throughout the rest of the process brings my clients peace of mind and confidence they’re getting what they want. People tell me my communication focus has made their home-buying or refinancing experience far less stressful then any of their past experiences.
They also tell their friends, family, and others to contact me, which is the highest compliment I can ever receive.
My special thanks to those who let me help them and their friends!
With my family, we are large, and we have two sons with autism. And we felt we had to get out of the big city, for our children's sakes. We went from renting a home in Southern California to renting a five acre home near Moab, Utah. About eleven months later, we found our dream home. I had had some credit issues that I was actively in the process of cleaning up. And, we put an offer in on the dream home that our family currently owns. My realtor was aware of the precarious nature of our finances, and she said If anyone can bring this loan in, it's Brad Mabey. We put the offer in, and Brad and his team went to work. Our family has always needed think outside of the box thinkers and go getters. With our realtor, Anne Fillmore, and our lender guy, Brad Mabey, we had a winning team. There were certainly a couple of times I thought, Well, this is not going to happen. One had to do with the lending limits on the specific county we were purchasing in. Another had to do with the fact that this house was completely off grid, and it was difficult to get the right appraiser on board that could deliver the appraisal value that was needed to secure the loan. I don't know how Brad and Anne ever got it done, but I can tell you that we are in our dream home, it is perfect for us, and I still can't believe we are here, sometimes!! Darla Anderson
