“I connected my clients to Sheri as we working to sell their existing home and buy a new home for them. From day one Sheri was on top of all the details, explaining complicated information in an understandable and clear style. This was a complicated closing due to the timing and the financing needed for the next home. Sheri worked to make it seamless as we had coordinated closings on the same day. In addition, she was able to move us through the process sooner than expected. She made my experience and my clients experience stellar from beginning to end. I highly recommend Sheri McKim for your mortgage needs!”

“I have nothing but praise for Sheri who was highly recommended by my realtor. My phone calls and emails were answered professionally, proficiently and promptly. I always knew Sheri was working to get me the best interest rate and terms available. Thank you, Sheri and Richard, for your diligence and hard work.”

“If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Exceptional service from Sheri & her team! She’s very knowledgeable, efficient & professional! I just purchased my first home & I wouldn’t use any other lender! Thank you so much for a very stress free process!! I will refer you and your team!”

“Two experiences with Benchmark Mortgage and Sheri McKim have made me a fan.

First, a friend was having problems with her original lender. I suggested refinancing. She applied with an online lender. Nothing with the online lender was quick. They were frustratingly slow, didn’t keep her informed or worse, gave her misinformation. Her return phone calls went unanswered. The final terms were unacceptable. So I suggested my friend try Benchmark. She was reluctant, fearing a repeat of her experience with the online lender, but she finally did call Sheri. What a wonderful change! Sheri McKim listened to my friend’s concerns and offered a real solution. The Benchmark interest rate was better than the online lender’s, the application and approval process smooth and efficient. And Sheri always promptly returned phone calls and answered emails. Benchmark solved my friend’s mortgage problems!

Second, with interest rates going down, I asked Sheri if Benchmark could benefit me. She said yes. My refinance was quick and easy. I found Sheri and her staff member, Richard, both informative, friendly, and responsive. Always responding to phone calls or emails within a day and normally within an hour. And my new interest rate is two points better than I was paying.”

We wanted to thank you for working with us and getting everything going on our Re-fi with our new mortgage, it really helped us out. Working with you was a pleasure and your team at Benchmark Mortgage handled all our dealings with great care and professionalism. And we have already signed up for the BI-saver program which will pay an extra payment each month and save us thousands in interest.”

“Sheri is one of the most knowledgeable and thorough mortgage professionals I have ever worked with. She understands the entire process which gives her the ability to anticipate and eliminate problems proactively throughout the entire mortgage process. If she can’t get the deal approved, nobody can. I would highly recommend Sheri as your mortgage “go-to” person.”

– Douglas Curtis , Realtor , Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS

“Being first time home buyers, we were nervous about making sure we had everything we needed for the mortgage process. Sheri Mckim and Benchmark Mortgage made the process as easy as possible answering our questions both day and night. She was EXTREMELY flexible and kept us very informed from the time we received our quote to signing the final papers, I don’t think it could have gone smoother. Thank you for all your hard work, we truly appreciate it!”

– Aaron & Alana D.

“I bought my home in Dec. 2010. Knowing Sheri already, from working with her on a professional level, I sought her out for my loan. Sheri is very upfront with the process and fee disclosure. I had no surprises throughout the process and closed in the time that was specified. Sheri is very hard working, honest and professional. I would recommend Sheri to anyone without hesitation.”

– Krystal W.

“Excellent communication and professionalism at every step of the process.”

“We met Sheri about 2 years ago when we bought our dream home, she was highly recommended by our realtor. The sellers were desperate to move fast and asked for a quick close. We closed 12 days after putting in the offer. At the time I don’t think I realized what a great performance that was, but a year later, we needed a second home loan. Enticed by a $1,600 seller credit when using their preferred lender, I decided to go with the “preferred lender” instead of Sheri and her team at Benchmark Mortgage. Fast forward 2 months and 2 contract amendments later, each of them postponing the closing date, it turned out that, since the sellers were also paying the closing costs, I could only take $150 of that credit, before maxing out on how much the seller could pay in total. That’s what I call a “lose-lose situation”. I’m sorry I didn’t use Sheri, it won’t happen again!”

– Florin M.

“Sheri is a true professional and great person. Sheri, her crew and Benchmark Mortgage just refinanced our home loan and shaved years off our existing loan. She took us from 15 years down to 10 years without raising our payment. I don’t think we could have done it without her.
Thank you for getting me the best rate ever. Retirement, here we come!
February 8, 2015, Ken was Sheri’s client”

“Thank you Sheri, you were our life-saver this time last year as you found us the best mortgage rate available. We are happy with our new home and nice neighbors and have watched the market escalate over the year. Think our timing was perfect for us since we only move every 30 years. We hope to be here for quite a while but possibly not 30 years in time to pay off our mortgage!!

Again our thanks.”

– Roz and Ray

“You and your team has been a blessing to us. You and your company will forever play a part in our financial lives. We will be more than happy to give you and your company a very positive review.”

– Claude and Ella A.

“Thank you all so much for a wonderful 1st home buying experience. From beginning to end you have exceeded our expectations! We thank God for your kind professionalism, prompt correspondence and for having our best interest in mind with every course of action. Our referrals are solely yours!

Blessing and Health,”

– The Linneys
