We can't say enough about how knowledgeable, friendly & thorough Nick and his team are. We would recommend them, without any reservation, to anyone needing a new mortgage or wanting to refinance. It was clear from the first telephone conversation with Nick that he was committed to getting us the RIGHT mortgage at the best rate available. They kept us apprised of the status of our mortgage every step of the way and they responded in a timely manner to every question that we had. At the closing table both our real estate agent, and the sellers' agent commented, more than once, on what how impressed they were with the staff at Benchmark. It was an excellent experience start to finish and we are more than happy that we chose Nick as our mortgage broker.  MoreLess

As the Realtor representing buyers who were financing through Nick, I found his "get it done" approach very refreshing. He was proactive on every aspect and initiated communication whenever there was even the possibility of a question. But most of all I really liked his attitude. He WANTED this deal to work, and I felt like he made it personal. Too often in my profession we feel like lenders are creating obstacle courses which only result in a closing if we pass each "test". Nick made it happen.  MoreLess
