"My husband and I bought a short sale home. With all of the changes in the market, we needed someone who was trustworthy as well as knowledgeable about the mortgage business. Duke was outstanding in his worth ethic, diligence and ability to think outside the box on extremely short notice. If it had not been for his business savy in this area, I doubt if we would have hung in there until the deal was closed. I recommend him highly to anyone who needs a no-nonsense, ethical guy. He'll finance your house like it was his own. Thanks again Duke!!!"

"My husband and I recently purchased a new home, and Duke assisted us in brokering the loan. He worked hard to search for the best rates out there and made sure to keep our costs at a minimum. He partnered with us through the entire process, and was even present when we signed our closing documents at the title agency. We highly recommend Duke as your loan consultant."

Tips for a Simple Loan Approval

If you encounter a special situation, it is best to mention it to us right away so we can help you determine the best way to achieve your goals.




10 Steps to Homeownership

From pre-approval to closing, Academy will help you along the road to homeownership. You can count on us for responsible, honest, and ethical service in every step of the process.

  1. Loan pre-approval. Pre-approval allows you to search for a home that you can afford based on your credit, income, and assets. An application and supporting financial documents must be submitted to your Loan Officer, including pay stubs, tax returns, and account statements.
  2. Home search Once pre-approved, start shopping with your real estate agent! When you decide on the right home for you, the terms of sale are negotiated and your agent presents your offer to the seller.
  3. Formal loan application and product selection. After the seller accepts your offer, formally apply for home financing and select the ideal loan product to meet your needs.
  4. Appraisal and home inspection. As your application is being processed, an appraisal is ordered to identify any discrepancies between the sale price and appraised value. Properties are also inspected for water and termite damage and other safety hazards.
  5. Processor’s and underwriter’s review. A loan processor reviews the entire loan file and sends all pertinent information to an underwriter who makes the final decision to approve the loan.
  6. Final loan approval. If you have a good credit score and debt-to-income ratio, your loan will likely be approved. Keep in mind that there may be financial conditions or property conditions that need to be met before final loan approval.
  7. Closing. Final loan and escrow documents are prepared and signed by you (the buyer) and the seller.
  8. Funding. A wire or check for the amount of the loan is sent to the title company.
  9. Close of escrow. Documents that transfer titles are recorded with the county.
  10. Confirmation of recording. The title company authorizes the escrow company (or closing agent) to draft a check to the seller.

Ultimately the final step . . . MOVE INTO YOUR NEW HOME!



For many, the benefits of buying a home outweigh the advantages of renting. With mortgage interest rates at historic lows and rents on the rise, now is an affordable time to finance a mortgage with a fixed monthly payment lower than rent.

If you plan to stay in your home for more than six years, buying a home could save you thousands of dollars over renting. And don’t forget about the noisy neighbors upstairs.

The Benefits of BUYING

Mortgage loan interest is deducted from your state and federal income taxes and a portion of your property taxes may also be deducted.

Fixed mortgage payments (principal and interest) will not change during the loan term whereas rent payments may increase annually.

Owning a home long term allows equity to build and thus your home investment to grow.

The Benefits of RENTING

Renting may be the preferred option for those planning or needing to make a move in less than six years.

Renters are often able to rely on landlords and property managers to pay for and make necessary home repairs.

Some utility expenses may be included in monthly rent payments.
