Carl Spiteri was absolutely fantastic. We would highly recommend him and the Benchmark Mortgage team for all financial needs. Thank you Carl, we loved your work and appreciated your time with our mortgage requirments.

-Gretchen G., December 3, 2018 

Carl and his team are great; we’ve purchased a home and refinanced through him and each transaction went smoothly and closed on time. My only regret is that we didn’t obtain our loan with Carl for our first home!

-Stephanie R., March 25, 2018, , Yelp.com

The service was great! All of our questions were answered thoroughly and the process was relatively easy. Carl and team were very nice and informational through the whole process.

-Mattison T., March 7, 2018

Your service was fast and efficient. You and your team answered all of the questions we had which helped make our experience go smoothly.

-Sean T., March 7, 2018

Financing our new home could not have been easier. Carl, Dorie, Nina, and the Benchmark team made us feel well taken care of, and put us at ease every step of the way.

-Sandra Y., March 5, 2018

Benchmark Mortgage made our first home-buying experience quick and efficient. Within minutes of talking to Carl, we had an idea of how much we would be approved for and were able to start searching for the perfect home. The whole team at Benchmark kept us informed at each step of the process, answering any questions we had along the way. Thank you to the entire Benchmark Mortgage staff. We love our new home.

We just closed on our loan working with Carl and his team at Benchmark. Although this wasn’t our first home purchase, it might as well have been since it’s been 25+ years since we last purchased.Needless to say, things have changed and the level of documentation was surprising. Working with Carl, Dorie, and Nina was straightforward. We started early, before we had even found our home (and would recommend this approach). With every step of the process we were notified by text and email, showing our progress. If we had a question that the staff could not answer, Carl would return our call even after-hours.They made us feel welcomed, and the loan process personal even though we had to remind ourselves that we certainly weren’t the only people they were working with. We wouldn’t hesitate a minute to recommend Carl and Benchmark for their home purchase.

Carl and his team are amazing! We have had a lot of our clients work with him and they are always so pleased! My family and myself have also had Carl do every one of our purchase loans and refinances!! I highly recommend Carl and his team!

– John S., February 22, 2018, Yelp.com

We worked with Carl and his team at Benchmark in purchasing our first home. They were very accommodating. They helped settle our fears and anxieties on our first mortgage. Very professional.

– Leland F., February 20, 2018, Yelp.com

Carl and his staff were very nice, professional and punctual. Made the overall escrow experience smooth.

– Paul W., February 13, 2018

Carl is wonderful and clearly explained each step of the home buying process along the way.

– Alistair W., February 1, 2018

Very easy and pleasant to work with. Always took the time to answer my questions and went above and beyond to help us close quickly.

– Monique H., February 1, 2018

“They are as they claim, transparent. Walk you through every step of the process, answer the phone, make time for you, act in a professional manner and they really opened our eyes to the process. I had one hiccup in the estimated timing of closing, but they made it right…immediately. Which to me, shows they are the real deal. When purchasing our next property, they’ll be the only call I make…and our tremendous realtor.”

– Diane C.
