Jim McMahan Welcomes You to Benchmark

Welcome to Benchmark,

Benchmark is a remarkable community of mortgage professionals. At Benchmark, we have a clearly defined set of core values that we live out and practice every day. Having carefully selected each team member one person at a time, and with an average of over a decade of individual experience, we have assembled what we believe is the best team in the mortgage industry today. Not only does our team go the extra mile to serve our branches, loan officers, and support teams, we also stand ready to deliver an exceptional experience that is second to none for our customers. Please reach out and let us know if we can help you take advantage of the Benchmark opportunity today.

Jim McMahan | President

Relationships come before everything else at Benchmark. You can see this philosophy in our current branches and our growth plan of focusing on fewer of the right branches over large scale growth.

Benchmark was founded on a very specific set of Core Values as a way to differentiate ourselves from other mortgage companies in the market. These 5 values have served us well and will continue to guide our corporate decisions, shape our culture and serve as a filter when we are considering to align with a partner or branch.

Jim McMahan, President of Benchmark Mortgage

Buying Still Cheaper Than Renting

November 3, 2016

Even in light of rising home prices, Trulia‘s October 2016 “Rent vs. Buy Report” successfully argues that owning your home with a conventional 30-year fixed rate mortgage costs less than renting in major US metros, even in high priced areas like Honolulu, HI (which sees 17.4% cost reduction over renting). The highest difference was 53.2% in Miami, FL … Read more
