“We have purchased five homes in our adult lives. Each experience has been about the same. The mortgage agent would look at our finances and credit rating, then tell us what our new mortgage interest rate would be for our new home. This time the same thing was occurring, they dictate to you what you get. I don’t know what inspired us more, the lack of communication or bad interest rates, but we decided to shop around. Both our real estate agent and financial manager independently mentioned Bill Clayton as our mortgage agent. We contacted Bill to discuss the opportunity for using him as our mortgage agent. Immediately the treatment was different. Instead of us fitting into his schedule, he worked around our schedules. We had a parking place right up front near the business office with our name posted. During our first meeting Bill ask about us. What were our goals and were either of us VAs. This was before asking for financial information. We explained our desire to prepare for retirement in 4 years in Florida. The first step was downsizing and paying off debt. Bill explained how mortgages worked, but also looked out for us when dealing with upfront costs to ensure we were not wasting money since we would be moving in 4 years. We looked at different options. Then we talked about how much to put down. This is when he recommended a VA mortgage. We discussed the pros and cons of a VA mortgage. After our first home mortgage, we have always put 20% down. Since Bill knew we wanted to pay down our debt as part of our goals, he showed us ways to incorporate that goal into our mortgage options. This excited us because he continued to look at our total financial situation not just can we pay for the the mortgage. We ended up with a fantastic rate, low points, 10% down and the ability to pay two bills. This strategy saved us over $2,000 a month. I can’t tell you what this did to forward our financial plan for retiring in 4 years. Our experience with Bill Clayton has reset the bar on what we expect out of a mortgage agent. Thank you is not enough!”

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the whole home buying experience. Bill Clayton and his team got us the home we truly wanted and made the process smooth, very fast and made sure we were informed every step of the way!. We started off with another lender and ultimately ended up switching to Benchmark and was so glad we did! Our situation had many obstacles and was probably considered a challenge but Bill delivered! If you are in doubt about whether or not you can even get a loan please give Benchmark the opportunity to help you and you will be so glad you did as we are!! Thank you all so much!!”
