“The team at Benchmark Mortgage was so helpful throughout our entire home-purchase process! My husband and I are first time home-buyers, and we felt like all of our questions and concerns were addressed when we came to Benchmark. We worked with Rodger and Melanie Horton, and they constantly went the extra mile to make sure we understood everything and were informed every step of the way. We feel like we not only got a good rate on our loan, but that we got a superb level of service that we wouldn’t have found elsewhere.”

“What can I say about Rodger and Melanie other then they are one of the best in the business. Our story: We were moving into our new construction home and had financing completed with a different bank. (I honestly thought Rodger was still on the commercial side so didn’t use him first like I should have the whole time) However on July 23nd that lender told me our appraisal would be coming in late and I would be homeless from anywhere to 2-3 weeks. So I called Rodger in a panic on that date. He got the financing and close date done from July 23rd when I called to give him the application and closed at the title company on aug 19th. 26 days to close on a jumbo loan. He matched my rate, no questions asked and him and Melanie went right to work for lunch family. I couldn’t of asked for anything better from them. Not only are they good at their job but also really good people who we are lucky to have in the Permian basin. Thanks Rodger and Melanie ”

“I can’t say much more about the team at Benchmark Mortage other than they are the best ever at what they do. Rodger and his team are flawless from day one all the way through closing. We had a bad experience with another lender who was not honest and forthcoming and we almost lost our home because of this but once we switched to Benchmark the loan was completed in record time. Melanie was very responsive, always had a quick response to any questions or concerns I had with kindness and patience. They treated me like I was family and made me feel at home every time I called or visited. This is a company you want to do business with, they have a passion for what they do and make this complicated process simple. I will always refer them to friends and family. Rodger Horton, I’m so glad to have meet you, thank you from me and my family. God bless you.”
