Our clients love the La Cantera Team!

Mark was very helpful and knowledgeable about our mortgage loan! Grateful to have had Mark work on the approval process for my husband and I. He was always on top of our loan and gave us all the necessary tools and education to help us make the right choice.

I don’t usually leave a lot of reviews. I felt that I had to this time. Everyone talks about how difficult and stressful the process of buying a house can be. Mark Jones and the entire Academy Mortgage Corporation made it the most helpful and stress-free process.

The Mark Jones team is probably the best around. We had two lenders say no because my wife and I already had a house in a different city. That didn’t stop the Mark Jones team. They eased the process of buying home. There was still some hiccups along the way but they always reassured us and took care of everything.
