The Benefits of Working with a Local Lender

  • Aug 29, 2019
Local Lender

The current trend in the mortgage industry is for banks and lenders to consolidate operations and service offsite. All processing may be handled in one location, all underwriting in another, etc. This can delay loan approval, put your loan at risk of getting lost in the shuffle, and be all-around frustrating.

Academy Mortgage has the advantage of being a direct lender, which means we can deliver to our customers the following benefits:

We get to know you.

A cold-call or online lender knows nothing about your situation or needs. We take the time to get to know you, listen to your goals, and personalize our approach to meet your objectives. 

We’ll be in control of your loan file from start to finish.

Our local branch is equipped to complete the entire loan process in-house—all loan processing, underwriting, and funding. We'll keep you up to date on the status of your loan at all times.

We’ll close your loan as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Our hands-on approach helps us ensure that you’ll have an on-time, hassle-free closing.

We’re easily accessible to answer your questions.

We’re available to assist you whenever and wherever it’s convenient for you, either through a scheduled appointment or by phone, text, or email. You can rest assured you'll receive accurate, timely, and honest mortgage advice.

We know your market.

Our teams are experienced and knowledgeable not only in loan origination but in recognizing the nuances unique to your area. We all live and have purchased homes here, too! We’ll work with you and your real estate agent or home builder as a team to deepen our understanding of the local market.

We care about this community.

Bringing homeownership to our neighbors and friends through our mortgage solutions solidifies our communities and revitalizes our neighborhoods. But we also believe we have a responsibility to give back to the communities who support us by actively participating in local service projects, sponsorships, and area associations.

Academy provides you with local support in ways larger organizations can’t. Drop by your local Academy Branch anytime!

Academy Mortgage is one of the top independent purchase lenders in the country as ranked in the 2018 CoreLogic Marketrac Report.
