Made the process easy

“Scott was on top of things from day one! I recently used him and securing alone for a new construction home. From lone pre-approval to closing, he stayed in touch with me regularly, laid out step by step what he needed from me and what needed to be done, and answered all my questions promptly. Friendly and easy to work with and even checked in on me personally. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a loan agent.”

A loan officer that actually adds value

“We have worked with many people in the past on multiple closings and Scott is by far the best loan officer we have ever partnered with. His communication was clear, he was patient and quick to answer all of our questions, and he went above and beyond to help us dig into points options and review estimate changes. Moreover, his style is not salesy. Scott added value with every conversation/email from application review to post-close. Whether you are an experienced or first-time homeowner, if you want someone who adds value and operates with transparency instead of just pushing paper, work with Scott.”

First-time home buyer, zero stress with Scott

“I went through Costco's lender program and I'm so lucky to have been paired up with Scott Benson at NBKC. It was my first home buying experience and Scott took all of the stress out of the lending side of things. My realtor had only good things to say about his promptness and attention to detail, and I never felt like he was trying to sell me anything. He calls it straight and he got me a fantastic rate in this crazy market with minimal fees. I enjoyed working with him so much I'd invite him over for a beer if he was ever in town! Cheers and thanks, Scott.”

The best in the business.

“Scott Benson was a blessing to our family. He was detailed, professional, relatable and extremely knowledgeable. There was no email or call that went unanswered. He went above and beyond for us and we couldn’t be more grateful. We can honestly say he was the only one we could count on and trust in the entire home buying process. We will recommend Scott to anyone and everyone we can.”

—Jessica Cool from from Maryville, TN

Best home loan experience so far!

“Scott is the best lender we’ve ever worked with. He’s extremely thorough, doesn’t miss a thing, and every time I asked a question he replied quickly and in great detail. I never wondered what was going on because his communication was impeccable and proactive throughout the whole process. And when our neighbors’ prior lender started doing a couple shady things only 3 weeks before their closing, I referred them to Scott and he stepped in with zero prior knowledge of them or their situation — and STILL met the closing date on time and without a hitch. 100% would/will do anything possible to work with him again in the future!”
