Current Role

  • Company Name: Academy Mortgage Corporation

Since 1988 Academy Mortgage (NMLS #3113) has provided exceptional service and the best solutions and tools to help individuals and families achieve successful homeownership. Our company is recognized and respected nationwide for our unwavering commitment to responsible lending, especially in today’s rapidly changing economy. We are one of the top independent purchase lenders in the country as ranked in the 2018 CoreLogic Marketrac Report (published January 2019).

As more banks and lenders consolidate operations and service offsite, we have the distinct advantage of being a direct lender–all loan processing, underwriting, closings, and funding are handled locally. As a result, loans close in a matter of days rather than months. Academy Mortgage is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah; has over 250 branches across the country; and is licensed to process loans in 49 states and Washington DC.
