“Absolutely top notch! I just closed on a house yesterday with them and they were extremely helpful through the entire process! As a first time buyer I had dumb questions and they were so patient with me through the process. They were really fast compared to other offerings and gave me a great rate. I felt like I was part of their family and could ask them for anything pertaining to my buying process and loan. If I had issues, I could call them or text and always got a prompt response. Keith and Logan were super helpful and worked out any issues I had, I owe you guys a beer! Ritz Carlton of Lenders!”

“The Martini group was incredibly helpful throughout all steps of the home buying process. Their communication is top-notch, making it extremely clear what the homebuyer needs to be doing in order to keep the process moving.
They were highly responsive to all my questions and even helped me better understand how a multitude of factors can impact a person’s final rate.
In the end, I would say I’m highly impressed with the Martini Mortgage group and would happily recommend them to anyone.”
– blander from Raleigh, NC | via Zillow
“We were able to get approved quickly. They were reassuring when I was afraid we wouldn’t close because of Carona and got it done. Very smooth process.”
– Elizabeth Nuckles from Goldsboro, NC | via Zillow
“Having just closed on our dream home a mere 900 miles away from our current residence, I can’t begin to say enough great things about Logan and Brad from the Martini Group/Benchmark. With this being the third home I’ve purchased and 5th mortgage process including re-fis, I’ve had a good taste for the variety of lenders, customer service agents, ease of applications and document transfers, and stress at the closing table. Needless to say the group at Benchmark/Martini made this THE smoothest home buying processes I’ve ever experienced, and absolutely stress-free despite closing in the middle of a nationwide financial fiasco and global pandemic. Thank you to everyone involved, and to those reading I really can’t stress enough how fantastic this team is to work with… they will get you to the closing table on time with complete transparency and support!”
– Ryan McKee from Wake Forest, NC | via Zillow
“Kevin and his team are great at what they do and fun to work with too! They got us a great rate, took care of everything and made the process of getting a loan for our home purchase so easy!”
– Kristina S.
“Kevin and his staff went above and beyond to make sure we get in the house that we now call home. I would recommend Benchmark Mortgage (Kevin) to any of my friends and family.”
– Robert hewitt from Raeford, NC | via Zillow
“The online application process was the easiest I had ever experienced. Kevin and Logan and their team of loan experts made it very stress-free for me and I just appreciate that so much! Kevin’s videos to explain each step of the loan process was very helpful, too. I definitely recommend them to anyone!”
– updcam8 from Cary, NC | via Zillow
“Kevin was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. He thoroughly explained every single step that we were progressing through and provided in depth insight to allow us to make the proper decisions for us. He was always very responsive and made a 3 week close seem like a breeze.”
– Matthew Tunucci from Raleigh, NC | via Zillow
“Great experience with the Martini crew this month moving from initial communication to close in a bit less than three weeks with absolutely no stress. Everyone I interacted with knew exactly what they were doing (and what I was supposed to do) and used our time efficiently – they knew the goal, timeline, and requirements. Will recommend to friends and family.”
– Jonathan Alston from Raleigh, NC | via Zillow
“Working with Kevin and Brad was simply amazing. They were extremely helpful and made the entire loan process very simple. They answered all of my questions immediately and everything went smoothly. This is a very knowledgeable and efficient group and I am so glad we went with them !”
– hgrant6892 from Wendell, NC | via Zillow
“Kevin and his team were great. My wife and I had worked with Kevin in the past to purchase our home in 2019. When rates dropped, Kevin helped us refinance. These guys are great. Kevin is very knowledgeable regarding mortgages and wants the best for his clients. Keep up the good work!”
– Chris&SarahL from Apex, NC | via Zillow
“Kevin and team were incredible. I had worked with Kevin months in advance to ensure when the time came, Martini could help us close in what was likely to be a 2-week window. When the time came, I found a house and needed to close ASAP. Kevin and team made it happen… faster than my realtor thought possible. Everyone doubted it, but they got it done. Aside from speed, Kevin and team were extremely personable, did not lead me down the wrong path once, and gave me great advice for other matters (he’s a local expert). Would highly recommend!”
– Michael Carli from Apex, NC | via Zillow
“I am blown away by his knowledge of the mortgage business. He puts his clients first. Answers your phone calls. I had no idea what the mortgage process was. I had waited for 30 years to use my VA loan. He made that happen. Thank you.”
– A. Longman from Bunnlevel, NC | via Zillow
“What seemed like an impossible window of time from offer to closing was made possible by the hard work and experience of Kevin, Logan, Katie and Brad and Benchmark.
I appreciated the team effort and making the process as painless as possible.
Happy to be in my new home to start off the new year!”
– Scott Calise from Durham, NC | via Zillow
“Worked with Kevin and his team Dec 2019. 1st contact was Dec 4th closed loan on Dec 23. Process was smooth, painless and zero surprises. Would urge anyone in the market to purchase a home or refinance to contact Kevin. You won’t regret it.”
– john24995 from Raleigh, NC | via Zillow
“Working with the Martini group was a delight! They took the time to explain everything to us (first time home buyers) and I never got the feeling that we were asking too many questions. They really went above and beyond to make our home buying experience go smoothly. I can’t recommend them enough!”
– Molly S from Raleigh, NC | via Zillow
“Kevin and his team are top-notch. They’re easy to reach, happy to work with your special circumstances, and work hard to get you the best rate. The loan process is simple, mostly online and painless. Our rate was so much better than average that the closing attorney had to look twice and ask us if that really was the interest rate for our loan. Great job Martini Mortgage Group!”
– kylegenebrown from Apex, NC | via Zillow
“I honestly could not be happier with the loan process! Kevin was there every step of the way to help answer my questions and provide guidance. He made what could be a stressful situation so easy and I enjoyed talking with him every step of the way. So pleased!!”
– Elspeth H. |
“We had a bit of complicated sale and purchase but Kevin found multiple solutions to get us into the home of our dreams. I recommend going with the Martini Mortgage group over any “in-house” team your realtor recommends.”
– Fanella Bowie from Wake Forest, NC | via Zillow
“The Martini Mortgage group was fantastic, and made buying my first home way easier than I could have imagined! I would (and will!) 100% recommend them to anyone looking at buying.”
– Sam Plummer from Raleigh, NC | via Zillow
“Awesome!!! experience was very pleasant. He is friendly and knowledgeable. His staff are also supportive and professional. I highly recommend his service.”
– fkhouri from Raleigh, NC | via Zillow
“We worked with Kevin and his team to finance a new home – and this was BY FAR – the easiest lending process we have been through! Kevin, his team – Brad, etc. – always pick up the phone, answered ALL of the questions that we had, kept us up to date on the process, etc. The software that they use to track the documents, etc. is an extremely easy platform to manage, very intuitive, etc.
I cannot say enough about the customer service of Kevin and his team. I would highly recommend his services to my loved ones, close friends, and anyone who is looking to have an excellent lending experience!”
– kspencer29 from Raleigh, NC | via Zillow
“Mr. Martini was very helpful and knowledgeable. Between him and his team they communicated everything very well along the whole process. Will use again.”
– Zachary ward from Raleigh, NC | via Zillow
“I was referred to Kevin and his team through my realtor and from the first interaction I knew that he would be the loan officer I would go with. Kevin and his team are always on point. From timely phone calls to emails, they always kept us abreast on all the completed steps and next steps that we needed to do. They worked super hard to get my closing done in LESS than 30 days.. YEP i said it… LESS than 30 Days! they are true rock stars… I have done through two closings over the years and this is by FARRRRR the best one that i have ever had. They educate you, the walk with you, they make it so easy to get the ball rolling and get you in your home! thank you Gentlemen for all your hard work!”
– cebonilla08 from Clayton, NC | via Zillow
“Working with the Martini group was one of the easiest parts of buying our new home. I have worked with other lenders and this company is by FAR the kindest, most professional people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They made this process seamless. I would recommend them over and over again. We were able to close in 15 days. I can’t thank them enough.”
– Mellisa Pendleton from Clayton, NC | via Zillow
“This is my second time working with Kevin and I highly recommend. He is quick to respond, very detailed and gets the job done in a timely manner. I will continue to use Kevin for any of my needs and I highly recommend him to friends and family!”
– Megan D |
“Kevin and his team were outstanding. Having not bought a home in twenty years the Martini group made the process virtually painless. Kevin took the time to answer all of my questions and offer me options to make the best choice in buying a home. It was especially tough trying to move from another state 4 hours away, Kevin always made time to take my call.”
– stratotanker459 from Clayton, NC | via Zillow
“I’m a first time home buyer and Kevin and his team made this entire process easier and more stress-free than I ever would have imagined. Everything was always explained in a way that was easy to understand, even for someone who has never bought a home before. Highly recommended.”
– mmyers58 from Zebulon, NC | via Zillow
“The lender was able to close my loan even though I an average credit score. Im surprised things happened so fast. The lender was there to answer all my questions. I would use this lending company again. Thanks again for making my dreams come true.”
– dgaddy596 from Fuquay Varina, NC | via Zillow
“I had a great experience with Kevin and team. They take the business seriously and were there for me throughout the process. Mortgage lending is usually a little overwhelming, but Kevin’s got it down to a science with explaining next steps, what’s needed, and personal videos that you can watch that help guide you through and remind you if you’re forgetting something. I couldn’t have asked for a better process or lender. I called Kevin out of the blue and he was energetic and passionate from the beginning, I knew I wouldn’t need to call anyone else. I even asked how he differentiated himself from others and it was focused on his practice and value add versus putting other groups down, which I appreciated. Highly recommend him.”
– Corey C. |
“Where do I start!!! Kevin is one of the best and most knowledgeable people Karin and I have ever dealt with in regards to a mortgage. Where large name mortgage institutions have many people involved, which can cause confusion, Kevin was my key contact, with assistance from his mortgage team. The mortgage process was easy, smooth, and fast. There was never confusion on what was expected of myself with Kevin. He was direct in his responses to my questions and accurate, and was always available for those questions. We can not say enough about Kevin. And would highly recommend people to use him. Thank you. Karin and Clyde”
– Clyde G. |
“This recent transaction is the 2nd I have had the pleasure of working with Kevin , Alex and the whole team. I highly recommend them. The first transaction Kevin and his team went above an beyond to help my son get his first home at 25 years old. That transaction lead my wife and I to call Kevin again when we wanted to purchase a new home. From the initial consult to the closing Kevin and his team use the latest technology to make the entire process more stream lined and convenient. From Secured E-signatures to secure document uploads, Videos and Pod cast. Not only was my loan completed without an issue , it closed on time! Kevin takes his passion for what he loves and has made an outstanding business. He has set the bar , Go talk to Kevin and you will see what I mean.”
– Raymond S.
“Unbelievable Service! Kevin does a great job of laying out all the possible options for your loan, he will go through each option in detail and let you determine what works best for you. He will then be your partner through the entire process, he responds immediately to any requests your real estate agent / attorney have almost immediately. I have purchased 8 houses, 3 with Kevin’s help. I have never found anyone who even compares. GREAT JOB!”
– Chris E.
“Kevin and Alex are the best! They made my first home buying process better than expected. The moment I started to feel discouraged Alex lifted my spirits and immediately gave me a motivational boost. They were so helpful and I truly felt important to them. I appreciate all their time and effort in doing the very best to help me.”
– Iris R.
“My family has used Kevin’s team twice now for new home purchases. In my view no one is more knowledgeable, professional, and dependable than Kevin. He led us every step of the way from preapproval to closing, and we always felt like we had someone in our corner working for us. His team sent us easy-to-understand video links that walk you through loan scenarios and documents relating to your transaction. In the end, my wife and I felt like we not only had a great real estate lending experience but also a better understanding of how this transaction fits into our financial picture. I would recommend Kevin and his team to anyone.”
– Jon S.
“Kevin Martini is very personal and awesome at getting you the best mortgage possible. Kevin guaranteed he could close a mortgage for us in 30 days so we put him to the test. Kevin and his team far surpassed our expectations, and completed everything way ahead of schedule with a week to spare. The Martini team made the mortgage process pain free, easy, and extremely informative to first time home buyers. I would recommend Kevin Martini to anyone search for a home mortgage. You will be in great hands and will get exceptional service.”
– Kirsten D.
Testimonials from Zillow
“I started a VA loan with another lender who “specialized” in those types of loans, on the day of our closing I received an email 5 hours prior that stated they needed more information. It turned out that they had really dropped the ball in underwriting our loan and also hadn’t attempted to renew our Certificate of Eligibility after the sale of our home (which had sold a month before). Multiple calls, emails and texts to the lender went unanswered- we were completely confused by what was happening. I spoke to our builder and they recommended Kevin and his team, I met with him the next day. Kevin is friendly, knowledgeable and a consummate professional. He and his team were courteous and thorough, I knew immediately that my family and I were in good hands. Needless to say, we closed on our new home two weeks later. THAT’S RIGHT- 2 WEEKS!!!
After what we had been through, it seemed like Kevin and his team were angels sent straight from heaven to help us. I can never express my gratitude enough to the Martini Group!”
“I just completed my fourth loan with Kevin Martini. He has completed each transaction with speed and professionalism that is unbeatable. Kevin is passionate about helping his clients understand their options, and he thinks outside the box to solve unique circumstances.”
“I cannot speak highly enough about my experience with Kevin! I have been through a few home purchases and mortgage professionals and Kevin was above and beyond the best. (I *thought* the others were good until I met Kevin!) What makes Kevin different, from my experience?
(1) Incredibly knowledgeable and consultative based on your individual situation. He worked through several different options with me to show me what my choices are and how that would impact cash flow in other areas of life. It really felt like I was dealing with a financial planner rather than a mortgage professional.
(2) I honestly felt like his only client. He took a personal interest in making sure I understood all of my options and was super responsive to any questions I had.
(3) He’s actually FUN to work with!! He has a great personality and turns the daunting task of mortgage approvals into an enjoyable one!
(4) He did not push me into any options. He presented different scenarios based on my situation and gave recommendations, but I truly felt he was working FOR me and had my best interest in mind every step of the way.
Overall, I feel so lucky that someone recommended Kevin to me and that I had the opportunity to work with him for a seamless mortgage process! I will continue to recommend him!”
“Kevin is awesome, he guided us through the process and helped us understand it. First he explained me the financing process and how to get it, after that all the paper work I needed and why and finally he was there when we closed. He made it really simple for us, we’re very happy with our new home”
“Kevin Martini is truly a professional. My husband and I were extremely impressed with Kevin’s knowledge on Mortgage. He worked hard to make sure that the loan would be approved within a short time period. Thanks to him we have a new home now. Thanks for the extra mile you went. We LOVE our new home.”
“Kevin Martini was very helpful with my loan application process. He worked hard to make sure that the loan would be approved within the tight time frame that we had prior to closing. He gave me some very sound personal finance advice for free. He was always there to pick up the phone and answer my emails no matter the time of day. It was truly a pleasure working with Kevin and I highly recommend him.”

“Kevin and his team are amazing. They helped me close on a loan in less than 3 weeks, got me a competitive rate without any hassle. If you need a mortgage loan his team is the only way to go!”
“Kevin was almost always immediately available when I’d call with a question; if he didn’t answer, he called me back right away. Kevin is very knowledgeable and was always able to explain details of my loan without hesitation. His team was also able to accommodate us on our very fast (21 days!) closing. Thanks in large part to Kevin’s team, we’re moving into our dream house next week!”
“I have lived all over the country and overseas and have moved many times. My husband and I were extremely impressed with Kevin’s knowledge not only of Mortgages, but the whole Home purchasing process when we relocated to North Carolina from New York. His sense of Humor AND professionalism made our closing the most fun out of all of them and we LOVE our home. He is a go-to person in our community and I look forward to working with him again. Can we say 6 stars?”
“I have worked with other mortgage brokers in the past, but Kevin was recommended to me. With Kevin, in our very first conversation, he was very clear and concise on what was needed to buy my next home. Throughout the process, he answered all of many questions. He even attended my closing and made the dreary process of signing documentation fun. I would recommend Kevin to anyone who wants a knowledgeable no nonsense resource.”
“If there is one lender anywhere that deserves a genuinely steller review – it must be Kevin Martini. This single individual along with the incredible team behind him went above and beyond even what the most optimistic and positive person could ever expect. I feel extremely fortunate to have found Kevin Martini as he truly sets the standard – PERIOD!
Your search for a lender just ended here!”
