    Kortnee was very easy to work with and kept me updated throughout the process. I was working out of town and Kortnee and her team was good with me emailing photos of documents from my phone. Made life a lot easier.

    Kortnee is great. I enjoyed working with her. She is full of compassion and she has a caring spirit. She ensured my family and I were in a home in a timely manner. She made our transition to Yuma from Arkansas a wonderful experience.

    Kortnee was without a doubt the best choice for us, she was able to deliver everything she promised and more! We were approved originally for an FHA loan, which we were ok with, but through hard work she was able to change, at the last minute, to a conventional loan, and that saved us thousands.I would absolutelly recommend Kortnee to anyone looking for buying a house.

    After 2 years of talking to different mortgage lenders, and getting nowhere...I was blessed to have been referred to Kortnee at Academy Mortgage! I am forever grateful to Kortnee and her team for making my dream of owning a home again possible. Kortnee is a very knowledgeable, and caring person who really gives of her time to help her clients. I have referred others to her and they are also pleased. I highly recommend the experts at Academy Mortgage! Thank you Kortnee!!!

    Kortnee is the BEST! My wife and I were totally impressed with the responsiveness, professionalism and outstanding overall experience while working with Kortnee and Academy Mortgage. Although we were pre-approved for a loan through a different lending agency. Our realtor recommended Kortnee to make our home buying experience better and less complicated, she was right on. We were completely satisfied with the impressive service and helpfulness. She is extremely knowledgable, dedicated and completely aware of our situation. She knew what we needed to do to make the buying process and necessary paperwork go flawlessly. In todays market and loan complexities, it was a welcome relief knowing someone like Kortnee knew what she was doing. We highly recommend her for your mortgage needs. She and her staff are GREAT! Thanks Kortness you're Outstanding!

    A couple years ago my wife and I were looking at investment properties. When we found a home that we wanted our realtor suggested that we go see Kortnee Garcia at Academy Mortgage. It was a pleasure to work with Kortnee. She is highly professional and eager to educate her clients on ways to make the process for qualifying for a loan simple. During our qualification period, Kortnee shared with us that interest rates were about to increase and that she wanted to lock us in at the lower rate. When we got to the office, everything was laid out ready to go. It was obvious that Kortnee had her act together and respected our time. In the event that Robin and I purchase another home, we will be calling Kortnee Garcia.Allen and Robin Christensen

    My experience with Kortnee Garcia was truly amazing! I had originally started with another loan officer who wasn't very helpful. My sister and I were both going through the exciting process of purchasing our first house at the same time (in different cities) and we would keep each other updated from day one. My sister's experience with Kortnee was very smooth, while mine with the first loan officer i was working with wasn't. Of course being the first house i had purchased i was clueless about most of the process. I wasn't getting the helpful/beneficial information from my loan officer that my sister was getting from Kortnee so I decided to go to Kortnee for help. She then became the loan officer that made it all better! Going to her was one of the best decisions i made. All my unanswered questions were finally answered and I became much more comfortable when it came to the decision-making process since I was more knowledgeable on how my decision could impact the biggest purchase I've ever made. As you can imagine, i had a lot of questions! Kortnee was very informative when answering any questions that i had and would bring up any topic relevant to my questions that i was able to use to my advantage. She did more than just answered my questions, she educated me on the pros and cons of my "potential" decisions. Purchasing my house has been the biggest decision I've made and couldn't have found a better team to work with!

    It is my pleasure to write a review for Kortnee Garcia, Loan Officer at Academy Mortgage. Where do I begin? Kortnee is the hardest most ethical, knowledgeable, hard working through, detailed and connected Loan Officer I have had the opportunity to work with. After receiving a pre-approval from another mortgage company in the local area, we contracted with a local builder to build our dream home. At approximately 60 days from closing the other company was unable final and fund the loan. We were devastated and angry with the other company for first issuing a letter of approval and for allowing us to invest a very large amount of out of pocket cash into this home only to have them retract there offer. It was under these circumstances that we were referred to Kortnee Garcia. I remember the day very well I was in total shock at the potential lose of our dream home as well as all the funds from out of pocket we had already spent to build this house. Kortnee spent a great deal of time with me on the phone that Sunday afternoon reviewing what had transpired. She was very detailed and extremely knowledgeable going over every detail. She advised me that she would be able to help us with securing our loan. We set an appointment for Monday morning early and began the process of securing a Mortgage for our home. She received incredible support from the company she works for"Academy Mortgage" as well as all the staff at her local office to put this Mortgage together in record time! And if that was not enough she even was able to write the loan at a more favorable interest rate than the previous company had quoted. I will never ever work with anyone else when it comes to home financing and neither should you!!

    My husband and I worked with Kortnee for our refinance. We were more than happy with how easy it was! Kortnee and her assistant were more than helpful and knowledgeable. It was a fast, stress free and fun transaction! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or refinance their home!
