“The staff at Benchmark Mortgage were very helpful when we purchased our home from the Owner in October 2015. We did not have a realtor working with us so it was a little confusing with all the new requirements for loans. Hilda and Kelly helped us through this process with patience and answered clearly every one of our questions. The entire Staff is friendly and approachable I will continue to and have recommended them to others. They are a wonderful Team. Thank you for making this process less confusing and for your exceptional service.”
