The Benchmark Way.

It’s not just how we do business: It’s our way of life. 

For over 15 years, Benchmark has been setting the industry standard. We have taken a different approach to the changes and challenges we face in our industry. You may find our approach to serving you refreshing: we are dynamic, yet focused. While others may give the impression that you are seen as just another transaction, we are committed to creating a long-term relationship with you and your family. We set the benchmark with our ethical standard.

Headquartered near Dallas TX, our network of mortgage professionals work with thousands of extremely satisfied clients just like you every month. We are dedicated to finding the right loans to help you better manage your personal mortgage needs. In short, we aspire to be your lender for life.

Our Core Values

Five guiding principles.

We owe our amazing success to a sound business model and ethical standard based on our Benchmark Core Values. We pride ourselves on providing personal service, competitive rates, and efficient loan processing. Benchmark was founded on the principle of customer centricity with service that exceeds expectations. Our tried and true philosophy has earned us a little recognition:

  • Inc 500 Fastest Growing Companies for 2004
  • Entrepreneur Magazine’s “HOT 500 List of the Fastest Growing Companies in America” in 2007
  • Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies for 2008
  • The prestigious Dallas 100 list for 2013

We have originated tens of thousands of loans since we began in 1999, and we are proud of the fact that we’ve achieved our amazing growth without incurring debt. We are financially solid. We offer more than 250 unique loan programs, making it easy to choose the best fit for your personal situation. If you have ever leveraged our team to purchase or refinance your home, you have experienced the power of these values in action first hand.

We Give Back

Being a good citizen is more than not being a bad one.

We do more than get you the best mortgage possible, whether you are a new home buyer, refinancing, or whatever your situation. We give back. It’s a big part of our ethical standard.

The group we  have focused our giving on is our US veterans. We hold fundraisers every year, either as a corporation, or through our branches, to help improve the lives of individual veterans.

Benchmark Community

We may be a community of mortgage professionals.. but life is more than mortgages.

While our clients come first, we know that empowerment leads to paying it forward. Our people are very important to us, and we make a big effort to make sure they are appreciated. This is what we call Community. Community can overlap in other areas of the way we do things, like giving back, or giving awards based on core values. Our Community page is a collection of photo albums for the various trips, events, and celebrations we use to build up our team, and to foster a vibrant culture of professional client support.
