There wasn’t even a doubt in our minds nor did we ever question who we were going to use as our VA Lender. Sheri from Benchmark took care of us on our first home purchase, so we knew the second would be just as easy. Any question we had, day or night was answered to the quickest capability via text, call or email.

As a veteran, I’ve personally witnessed my brothers and sisters in arms being underserved. That’s not what we experienced with Sheri. From day one we were welcomed and walked through the lending process. And during closing, in the presence of Sheri and our realtor, the closing department showed high praise for Benchmark.

The thing that stood out the most was Sheri’s responsiveness and genuine empathy. While I know we were not her only clients at the time, she made us feel as if we were. She was prompt, easy to talk to, and it was apparent she is an expert in the field. We had a complicated application with multiple homes and Sheri found us the best and most financially sound Package.

We never look back wondering if there would have been an easier way without Sheri.

Choosing Benchmark came at the recommendation of my realtor. Sheri and her team did not disappoint. Every question or concern was answered promptly and honestly. My preappoval and home selection was all done while I was deployed. When I came home I had a family emergency and Benchmark had a notary come to my location to finished the closing. They are the kind of company where everyone knows who you are. The easiest and most efficient process I’ve done which is mind-boggling since buying a home is such a large purchase. Military or not Benchmark is a stellar company with honest people.

I Eugene Cartwright II, would like to thank Aaron Rue and everyone at Benchmark who helped my wife and myself with the process for getting us in our new home. I applied for my VA loan and Aaron really helped throughout the process. I would encourage any Veteran that’s looking to purchase a home, to talk to Aaron Rue and the wonderful people at Benchmark. I served in the Air Force in Desert Storm and proud to say that as a Veteran I am thankful and grateful for Aaron and the way I was treated. I was able to qualify for $0 down and $0 at closing through the VA program. My wife and myself are proud home owners and it’s all thanks to Aaron Rue @ Benchmark.

Bret was extremely helpful in not only getting things done on time, but also ensuring that I understood what all was going on as a first-time buyer. I appreciated his work ethic and willingness to take a couple extra steps to make sure my loan went through. If I ever buy another home in the Wichita area I will definitely be going back to Bret and Benchmark Mortgage.- J. Tilley U.S. Air force

From the first conversation until closing, Kevin was amazing.  He went above and beyond to ensure that our loan was processed and ready prior to closing with no issues.  His professionalism and knowledge about VA loans is what comforted my wife and I that we were in good hands.  This was our forth home buying experience and by far the best, once we chose Benchmark as our lender.  Thanks again for making our dream home experience a great one!

We were looking to make a new start in Tennessee! When we found Becky Rockwell with Benchmark, we found a treasure in the mortgage world! We decided to use my VA loan on the third and final house! What a great experience! With Becky at helm, Rachel and Christie made the whole experience seamless! The purchase went off smoothly! If we could, we will recommend anyone to use Becky Rockwell for your mortgage needs! Thank you ladies for all the hard work!

Alex Wall has gone above and beyond to help me with my home loan that I purchased few years back. Even though it has been years since I purchased my home he still checks in and sees how the house is going. Benchmark Mortgage is really great company to get a loan through because they will sit and talk to you about any questions you may have. They give you advice on your loans and purchases. As a veteran, they gave me quite the discounts and helped me achieve the monthly premium that I wanting.

You can not go wrong with using Benchmark Mortgage as a lender.

Over the years, my wife and I have used Bret Frerichs as our Mortgage Professional to purchase multiple properties. Bret and his staff have the professionalism and knowledge that you will not find just anywhere. Bret has always had a dedication and drive to give back to the active military and veterans that have sacrificed so much for this great country. I always refer potential clients to Bret F. just as I will only deal with him myself. Thanks again for everything!

I reached out to Selena Ward with Benchmark Mortgage Jan of 2018. That was the third time I have used my VA home loan. I have to say that Selena and her team made this time around the smoothest and easiest. Everyone knows that the VA loan is not the most streamlined Mortgage program even though it is a great program for us that have served our country through the military. Selena has made it her personal mission to learn the VA loan process so that it runs as smooth as possible. I could not be more impressed with her expertise on the system and willingness to walk me and my wife through it. No matter how many times we asked the same question over and over. Being a State Farm Agent, I have gotten to know a good number of realtors, and many of them have expressed their frustration with the VA loan process. Even to the point that they are reluctant to work with people who are going to use the loan for purchasing a house. They just have not worked with lenders who know it well enough and in the middle of getting the home closed it falls through. Selena Ward is the answer to this problem! I was never worried about the process. If I had questions, they were answered almost immediately, and I was always in the loop. Even the Title company made comments on how surprisingly smooth the process was. I want to thank Selena and her team for their dedication to veterans and the VA loan program that most veterans use. I am very proud to know there are people like her who support veterans every day.
