“Just closed on a condo in LA thanks to the help of Clay and his team!!! Throughout the whole process he was always reachable with any questions I had and a joy to work with. His team was also on top of it and helpful! Thanks Clay and team for everything! So happy you were a part of the biggest decision of my life to date!”

“Clay was fantastic. He really listened to our needs and helped us get our dream home! He is very accessible and kept us “in the know” throughout the whole process. We had a great experience and would recommend him to anyone and everyone else!”

Brandon M. 5/4/18 (yelp.com)

“BI am so appreciative of Clay and his team. I was definitely not an easy first time home buyer, and Clay was very patient and so helpful when it came time to explaining the process. He broke down the different options, and helped calm me down when I was worried about things. Even months after my purchase closed, he is always willing to help out and answer my questions. Thank you Clay and Benchmark for all your hard work. I am loving my new condo!”

“Being self-employed, getting qualified for a mortgage can be a challenge. Clay and his staff have twice accommodated me promptly and painlessly. Clay is my go-to guy for home mortgages, either for my primary residence or for income property.”

Mickey R. 3/29/18 (yelp.com)

“Wow, we just closed on our FIRST home and Clay walked us through every detail and made our process as smooth as it could possibly be! I’ve always heard stories of how stressful and horrible the home purchasing process is, which was always my fear, but Clay made our experience the exact opposite. He and the team were very kind in always answering all of our questions. They were efficient in making sure they got back to us in a timely manner and if we needed to talk to Clay during non office hours, he made the time to do so.
If you are looking for a Mortgage Broker, please reach out to Clay and the team at Benchmark. I promise you will be glad you did!!”

Crystal V. 2/5/18 (yelp.com)

“’m not sure our experience purchasing a home could have been better with Clay and his team. They were extremely helpful, had very fast (if not immediate) response rates to all of our questions, and most of all they were PATIENT. Clay and his team went to great lengths to answer all of our questions and better yet, they anticipated the questions we didn’t even know to ask. Even now several months after we have closed, Clay and his team have gone above and beyond to help us with questions we have about home ownership. We will definitely be coming back to his office when we’re ready for our next home purchase (and likely, it will be sooner than that…with more basic home ownership/financial questions!)

Thank you to the whole Benchmark team!”

“Just bought a condo and Clay was awesome. He was quick, efficient, easily accessible, and very personable. Would recommend him to friends without a doubt”

Colin M. 1/2/18 (yelp.com)

“Clay and his team were extremely helpful throughout the entire process! As first time homebuyers, we came in with a lot of questions and at times concerns, but Clay took his time to address every detail and make the process understandable and enjoyable! We were so informed and ahead that we finished paperwork and underwriting weeks before the close of escrow. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Benchmark Mortgage!!”

Paul K. 12/6/17 (yelp.com)

“Clay’s team was excellent in every way of getting our loan done in a very timely manner… very very pleasant to work with…Would recommend highly to anyone!”

Leslie S. 12/2/17

“Making our first home purchase was a very scary prospect and we felt like we were going in blind. Clay’s team guided us through every step of the process, never hesitating to explain the basics (over and over again!) and answering every one of our questions completely and with total professionalism and kindness. Buying a home is a nerve-wracking experience, but Clay’s office made the experience as comfortable and expedient as possible. We are very grateful!”

Iris F. 11/1/17

“I know we had a different kind of mortgage experience with us being out of the country at signing time but I feel I wasn’t understood how things are here being out on an island. I also would have found it easier to sign all the escrow docs if little tags had been used to make sure we signed in all the places signatures were needed. I felt pushed and pressured at times too.”

Cynthia P. 11/1/17

“Team was very professional even on a outside the box transaction.”

Omar S. 11/2/17

“Team scrambled to get things handled when my buyer delayed on doing what she needed on their end. Team always kept me up to speed.”

Susan B., Realtor 3/1/17

Kathy A. 2/5/17

“The team at benchmark did an excellent job and made the refinancing process very easy.”

Steven K. 2/1/17

“Clay handled a small loan for an investment property of mine . I have a complex company structure which took a lot of underwriting for such a small loan. Clay and his team went beyond expectation and delivered the goods. I can highly recommend Benchmark Mortgage.”

Mark T. 11/2/16

“Excellent service and quicker than expected completion. Definitely would use again for refinancing or financing.”

Glen A. 10/2/16

“Clay and his team were extremely responsive throughout the entire transaction. From the initial pre-approval of my client all the way through close of escrow, they stayed on top of everything and made my job as the REALTOR® easier.”

Aaron Johnston,Realtor – Website 8/1/16

“The entire team at Benchmark did an exceptional job. Everything done in timely manner and everyone had excellent customer service skills. Clay always kept in touch with me every step of the way. Thanks for everything.”

Simone P. 4/6/16

“This is the second time I am using Benchmark Mortgage services and being helped by Clay and his team. As usual they delivered and enabled me to close yet again in an amazing short time while giving me great rate and services. A+ team!”

Sandrine J. M. 4/1/16

“I was in a circumstance where I had to refinance, even though it wasn’t at the ideal time for me. I initially went to my bank (one of the larger players), figuring that given their size and product offerings I’d get the best deal with them. Everything seemed like it was going well at first until I found out I’d have to come up with a significant amount of money up front and would end up with a slightly higher monthly payment. Fortunately around that time, I was introduced to Clay through a friend, and he was a Godsend! He explained options to me that I didn’t know where available and carefully explained the pros and cons of the options. Bottom line I ended up with a slightly lower payment but would be getting a nice chunk of money back as well that I can use to pay down some higher interest debt! Clay is friendly, kept the process running smoothly with frequent (but not annoyingly frequent) updates, and within a little over a month it was settled. I can’t recommend him highly enough. ”

“We were very satisfied with the Benchmark Team!  Clay Robison and his team were superb!!  Everything said came true..  Clay made It as easy as 1..2..3!!!   It was very easy to communicate with everyone on the team and we would highly recommend Benchmark Mortgage to anyone and everyone!!”

Leslie S. (yelp.com)

“Clay and his team have been on top of it thru the entire process. I got a great rate and they enabled me to make a winning bid by letting me promise a faster closing date of escrow than other bidder. He was very communicative and easy to reach. Overall, I am very satisfied with his services. ”
