Renovation Lending Manager


The Academy mortgage team was great to work with and I really liked the updates. Just the right amount of information to keep me on top of the deal. I have other lenders that I recommend, but now I can add Brian and his team to my list!Kimberly Bradbury - June 2016
As a first time home buyer the 203k Loan Process was very involved and at sometimes overwhelming but between Brian Nowakowski and Anne Niederberger I was in good hands. They were both very responsive and helpful throughout the process as we found solutions to the various hurdles throughout the loan process. I would also highly recommend George Lopez (HUD Consultant) to anyone with a 203K loan in the future as I am confident that the end result would not have been the same without his knowledge and expertise.

"I started out the transaction a bit skeptical because the property that I had listed was under contract for the 2nd time. The first buyer did not get funding on a 203k loan. This time, I was going to stay in touch with the lender EVERY step of the way. And, that is exactly what I did. I called Brian Nowakowski at least weekly throughout the transaction, sometimes several times a week. He almost always answered the phone and if he did not, I would receive a call back that same day. I would question him about each and every step of the mortgage approval process and he easily answered my questions and assured me that they were working towards the settlement day. While we did have one 2-week extension, he explained to me exactly what each step would entail and how many days for each step. Although still a little skeptical along the way, in the end, he came through AND I was IMPRESSED! Thank you, Brian"Lorraine Treger 4/14/13

I recommend Academy and Brian to my buyers because he is honest and experienced; if he says a buyer can qualify for a loan, I trust he and his team will do everything they can to process that loan on time and meet the buyer's expectations. Jennifer
Academy mortgage was simply outstanding. Excellent, very professional, & responsive staff. Answered all questions and pushed timely information. Worked to get lowest rate which we were completely satisfied.William Epley-June 2014
I have been a realtor for the past 10 years and knew that Brian would be my go to when I bought a home as he has always provided stellar service to my clients and of course he succeeded in doing the same for me. I will continue to send clients his way.Jennifer Yateman-September 2014
I really enjoyed working with Brian and Anne. They were incredibly amicable, responsive and attentive. Brian in particular was very educated on different loan products and really tuned in to what would be the best option for me.Charlene Sallgren-July 2015
I came to Academy on a recommendation by a friend. The whole process was enjoyable and easy. I will keep them in mind for any future needs.Kenneth Ottey - January 2015
Academy Mortgage was one of only a few companies with experience and expertise in the HomeStyle loan process, which made them a great fit for us. There were 1 or 2 hiccups along the way that ultimately delayed our closing by a few days, but other than that we were very pleased and Brian was overall very responsive to our questions.Meghan Will - March 2016
Brian and his team went above and beyond to help me and my family get into our house. There were some struggles and some miscommunication between myself and some of Brian's team. Brian handled those issues with swift and accurate professionalism, taking time out of his busy schedule to personally meet with me when it was convenient for me and explain exactly what was going on and why. I cant say enough good about Brian and his team at Academy Mortgage. When it comes time to buy my next house I know I will be going directly to Brian and Academy Mortgage. Erich Caudell
