About Ben Nelson
I live in Aumsville, Oregon with my wife, Jessica and three children. I was able to play professional football for 13 years as a Wide Receiver in the NFL (Minnesota Vikings) and AFL. This gave me the opportunity to travel the US, meet a lot of great people who have made a huge impact on my life. I have always said, being a football player was not who I was, it was what I did. Transitioning into Mortgage Lending was natural for me because of my mathematics/statistics degree, my ability to work very well with people from all walks of life, and using my relentless work ethic to out-service other lenders in the industry. I have been in the top 1% of Mortgage Originators for purchase volume in the United States in '17, '18, & '19. I am so blessed to have the family that I have, and feel very fortunate to be a Mortgage Loan Originator with Academy Mortgage in Salem, Oregon.
