A Denver native, Benedict "Ben" Maez started his professional career in the automotive industry prior to getting into residential lending. In those early years the experiences he gained and the obstacles he successfully overcame, laid the groundwork for Ben's future successes. It was during this time that Ben learned many of the core lessons he still carries with him today. After spending more than 5 years in the automotive world as a top producer in a multitude of roles, he decided it was time to make a change in his career path. After careful thought and extensive due diligence, Ben shifted his focus to the finance arena where he became residential mortgage loan originator, currently licensed in three different states including Colorado.
Shortly thereafter, it wasn't long before he started to understand what a profound impact his job had on people's lives. With this realization came the drive and motivation to become an expert in his field. Only being average was unacceptable to him. As a result he began to look at the industry as a whole and identify areas that needed the most improvement. Today, you will find Ben going above and beyond to ensure his clients are not only well educated and informed, but because he takes the time with each client to understand their specific circumstances so he can provide them with the best solutions for them.
Ben Maez is an entrepreneur and a visionary. Even more important than that, Ben is a leader. He possesses a unique ability to train and motivate his peers and those around him in a way that very few can. In 2012 he took those skills to a new level when he graduated from the Hispanic Leadership Development Program. The program was developed by Metro State University and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Denver, which Ben continues to be an active member of and serve on its various committees.
Ben humbly understands the fact that had it not been for the help and mentorship of certain individuals throughout his life, he would not be where he is today. This is why he has dedicated much time an effort into giving back to his community. In addition to volunteering regularly at The Goodwill Industries of Denver, he is also a mentor to high school students through the Colorado Youth at Risk program.
