"Great service from Chris at Benchmark. Very responsive and answered questions about the loan and closing process promptly. Some were answered before I even knew to ask them.

This was my first VA loan and everything went very smoothly and there were no problems at all in the process. Would highly recommend Chris and would not hesitate to use him again."

"Chris Moore was very professional and a pleasure to work with. He helped to make the process of home buying for my husband and myself much easier than I ever thought it would be. He was very courteous throughout the process and was always prompt in getting back to me whenever I had any concerns or questions. He will even go the extra mile to help whenever he can.

Benchmark Mortgage should be very proud of having such a professional and courteous employee representing the company. I know that I will recommend Benchmark because of my pleasant experience with Chris."

"I used Chris for my first house I ever wanted to buy. I was new to the Dallas area and knew nothing about the area or buying a house. Chris made me feel very comfortable from the time I called him and it definitely eased anxiety that I should have had under my circumstances. He always answers call, does what he says, and he made time to show up at my closing! Highly recommend!"

"From the first conversation until closing, Kevin was amazing. He went above and beyond to ensure that our loan was processed and ready prior to closing with no issues. His professionalism and knowledge about VA loans is what comforted me and my wife that we were in good hands.

This was our fourth home buying experience and by far the best, because we chose Benchmark as our lender. Thanks again for making our dream home experience a great one!"

"Chris Moore is outstanding and such a pleasure to deal with.  He did a fantastic job helping me and my husband purchase a home. As you know, purchasing a home can be very stressful.  He made the process much easier than I ever would have expected.  Chris was very courteous throughout the process and was always prompt in getting back to me whenever I had any questions or concerns.  He is a wonderful representative of Benchmark, and the company should be very proud to have him as one of their employees.  I will definitely recommend Benchmark to others because of my pleasant experience with Chris."

"Chris (and his wonderful processor Becky) handled the financing of our new home recently.  Exactly 21 days after my first call to Chris we were "cleared to close".  Both Chris and Becky were very knowledgeable about the VA loan process.  The transaction was so smooth and the communication was excellent.  Every question was answered promptly and every concern was addressed.  We closed ahead of schedule with no surprises.

I highly recommend Chris Moore as a loan officer and Benchmark as a company."

"With a mortgage lender you want someone who can communicate. Herb has been an excellent communicator, always answers my phone calls (even after hours), and even makes sure to send necessary documents to my Realtor as needed. That has been a life saver.

I've been house shopping for a while and put in a few contracts. Each time Herb has been very quick to create preapproval letters as needed for my realtor to include with my offer. He has typically gotten the paperwork to us in an hour or less!

I'd highly recommend Herb to anyone house shopping. He takes the headache out of a lot of this and makes buying a home just a little less stressful."

"Herb Ziev is one of the best lenders I have ever worked with. In this busy Dallas market we need constant communication with the lender and Herb has always been there for me and my clients. My clients can’t sing his praises enough.

He closes on time (most of the time he is ready to close a week before the closing date), he answers all my clients questions and addresses all their concerns thoroughly, and I know that in a multiple offer situation Herb will go above and beyond to ensure my clients’ offers stand above any of the others when it comes to financing.

I would highly recommend Herb Ziev to anybody looking for a lender!”

"Herb really helped me with the recent refinance of my house. He kept me apprised of the current interest rates, and when they reached a point that it made sense for me to refinance, he walked me through the whole process. He was flexible in working with my crazy work schedule.

Everything was handled promptly and professionally. It was a pleasure working with him. I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or refinance their house."

"Herb was recommended to us by our real estate agent when we purchased a home in Dallas in December 2009/January 2010. Herb recommended financing that we hadn’t considered, which was of great advantage to us. He was available by telephone and up to speed on the process throughout. He personally attended the closing and made sure that everything was handled correctly.

Between me and my husband, we have purchased six to eight homes in various locations around the country and have never had such good service."
