Welcome!

As a Pacific Northwest native, I am proud to have created a successful career based on referrals from nearby friends, family, past clients and business partners. After 18 years in the mortgage industry it is a blessing to work for a company that enables me to provide exceptional service to my clients and promotes a positive, fun place to work.

Academy Mortgage has a proven record for exceeding customer satisfaction, offering a variety of products and funding loans with unique circumstances. These qualities and having a great team of people working with me allow me to focus my attention on communicating with clients, realtors and others involved in a transaction. It is wonderful to work with partners who support me and work towards the same goal, creating clients for life!

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my fiance and son, adventuring outside, traveling, spoiling my nieces and nephews, playing with our three dogs, church activities, fundraising and time with friends and family. I look forward to learning more about your life, interests and home buying or refinance goals! Working with wonderful clients makes all of the hard work so rewarding and is why I love being a mortgage consultant!

Academy is a direct lender, which means that my Branch and Regional Offices are equipped to complete the entire loan process in-house and all loan processing, underwriting, closings, and funding are handled locally. As a result, we have a proven track record of closing loans as quickly and efficiently as possible. This makes the loan process smooth for our clients and also makes you more competitive when competing against other buyers. Call/text me anytime to discuss your home ownership goals and I look forward to assisting you.

I invite you to put us to the test. Let me show you how simple and easy securing a mortgage can be.

Julie & her team did an awesome job keeping the client and the process on track and making sure we closed on time. Thank you!!

—Lisa Fain

Julie and her team were absolutely amazing. They were so helpful through every step of the operation, and we plan on referring everyone we know to her! Throughout the entire homebuying process, she was a step ahead of us, making sure that everything would be going smoothly. Our realtor was thoroughly impressed with her as well, which says a lot to me, because he deals with countless mortgage issues, and for him to tell us how special Julie and her staff are just reinforced to us how lucky we were to have them.
