“Thank you for helping to make this a wonderful experience! ”

– James

“Thank you for making everything smooth & fast”

– Brian

“Fantastic service from start-to-finish. They began with “education,” which I did not expect but really appreciated. This gave me background to the process and the options. My loan was complicated by the fact that I was moving from another state, selling a home there, using VA, and many other issues inherent in these moving parts. Everything was coordinated quickly and efficiently. Steve Reed is the best. Lorraine Veltri kept everything (including me) organized and on-track. Their whole office moved quickly to meet all of my deadlines. All this, plus the fact that I got a really great rate and excellent terms. I would definitely use Benchmark again in the future. Thanks! ”

“Claire and I just wanted to thank you all for helping us buy our dream house. As retirees, we are still in disbelief that at this stage of our lives we are able to buy a home like the one we found. We were so delighted to be able to work with Steve througout this process and we felt that he was always looking out for our best interests from the very beginning. Also, Jennifer and all the staff have been totally professional, were always prompt in answering our questions, and certainly helped take some of the anxiety out of the process of securing a loan. Your company treated us like respected, valued clients, and this kind of customer relations is rare these days. The little things, like having a reserved parking space at your office each time, offering us coffee and drinks, and the gift at closing did not go unnoticed. I hope you will share our compliments and appreciation with all the staff at Benchmark.

We wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season!

Sincerely and with appreciation,- ”
