Lance Akins

Mortgage Loan Originator


A native of North Carolina, I was born in Greensboro but spent my young adult years in Chicago where I met my wife. Back in 2015 she was hired by PPD (now Thermo Fischer) and we were lucky to be relocated to Wilmington. At first, I missed the big city. But that quickly faded as I came to love sandy weekends on the beach with my daughters and the close relationships that are only possible in a town as friendly as Wilmington. When not helping families with home mortgages, I enjoy spending time with my gorgeous wife and two daughters. I love volunteering at my church, dogs, cooking, and fishing.
When I was young, I wanted be Batman when I grew up. And like most people with superhero aspirations, I channeled my desire to help those around me into a career of service. First, in the restaurant industry where I worked a variety of management positions, then as an assistant clergyman of my local church here in Wilmington.
In 2017 I was lucky enough to be introduced to the mortgage industry and became a loan officer. I quickly realized that I could make a HUGE difference in people’s lives by helping them reach their financial goals. Without meaning to, I finally did become that superhero I dreamed about when I was little. But instead of fighting crime, I fight for my clients and help them get the best loan for their family. Just think of me as the Batman of Mortgages!
And just as Batman is a little different from your other superheroes, I’m different from other loan officers. I provide a Total Cost Analysis to review all aspects of a mortgage program to determine the best option for your family to increase your net worth over 5-7 years. My clients and Realtor partners always get superhero service, proactive communication, honesty and integrity.
If you are looking to buy a home or refinance your current loan, I can make it easy for you. Call me directly at 312-399-0679 or reach out through LinkedIn.
