Salt Lake City, April 12, 2016—Academy Mortgage has been recognized as Best of State in Utah for Mortgage Banking.

The Best of State Award honors Utah companies for their overall excellence, quality products and services, creative business approaches and strategies, and efforts to improve the quality of life in their community and state and to make the world a better place.
