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.

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.

Team Benchmark is cheering on our very own Branch Manager Benchmark - Nick Ellis NMLS#10490 as he runs the Boston Marathon this morning in honor of the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation.

Nick's team has already raised over $13,000 for this incredible cause. Nick shared with us why he does it:

"I can only imagine what it takes for our Special Operators to be able endure the sacrifices they make to help keep us safe. They endure hardships we can’t imagine while staying out of the spotlight. That’s why this is so important to me.

This organization is run by Glen’s closest friends and family and they keep his memory alive by giving their time and efforts helping those like Glen. If you wish to follow me during the world’s most coveted marathon, you can catch Bib #26921 cross the finish line approximately 3:15pm Eastern time on Patriot’s Day"

Today is National Vietnam War Veterans Day, which was established by law in 2017 to honor and thank U.S. Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifices.

Please join us in thanking a Vietnam Veteran today and remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice. We had the honor of helping Art, a U.S. Army Veteran who served three tours in Vietnam. Benchmark salutes you!"Sometimes being a combat disabled veteran, even some of the simple things can get very confusing. The Benchmark Team set me at ease right away and listened to what I needed. They gave me more than one option and then helped me with the right decision for me and my family. As a veteran with three tours of boots on the ground in Vietnam, I would like to reach out to ALL my fellow veterans, those past and those present, if you are buying or refinancing a home - do yourself a favor and TALK with the awesome folks at Benchmark. Take it from me, a fellow veteran."

Marc was with first U.S. Navy Seal to lose his life in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Join us in honoring this American hero and keeping his mother Debbie in our prayers.Join us in remembering Marc Lee, the first U.S. Navy Seal to lose his life in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

In Marc's last letter home, he shared "However what I do over here is only a small percent of what keeps our country great. I think the truth to our greatness is each other. Purity, morals and kindness, passed down to each generation through example. So to all my family and friends, do me a favor and pass on the kindness, the love, the precious gift of human life to each other so that when your children come into contact with a great conflict that we are now faced with here in Iraq, that they are people of humanity, of pure motives, of compassion."

Marc's mom Debbie continues his legacy through America's Mighty Warriors, which honors the sacrifices of our troops and the fallen and their families by providing programs that improve quality of life, resiliency and recovery.
