John Seville Testimonial from Brent Goodale – Michigan Mortgage Consultant

“We are repeat customers of John’s. He is honest & really does want to help us make the best decision for our financial future. Highly recommended. I would not recommend or use anyone else.”

– Rachel O.

“It’s nice to know that there are people who want to see our family happy. Benchmark Mortgage worked very hard to see us get our dream home. The mortgage loan process can be a daunting process, but the people at Benchmark made it easier by explaining exactly what is going on, and why. They absolutely didn’t give up on a very important part of our lives. I would highly recommend Benchmark Mortgage to anyone who would like superior customer service while buying a home.

A big thank you from the Moore family!”

– the Moore Family

“John and his team of professionals were great to work with. At the initial meeting with John everything was explained thoroughly. Questions that came up later were answered promptly, and there were no surprises at the end. All in all a great experience, I would definitely recommend their service.”

– Sara B.

“John’s help with our mortgage was outstanding. From the time my wife and I were considering purchasing the house, John was very quick in providing my pre-approval letter so the whole offering and negotiation stage went smoothly and quickly. Since this purchase was a beach house/second home, there was another offer on the table which ended up falling through due to financing reasons. This was not the case with us. John made himself available to our realtor and proactively reached out to him to make sure the deal was going smoothly and the appraisal would be executed. Since this sale was one of many in the chain of events that needed to take place, timing was of essence. John made sure he stayed on top of the overall process and helped to make sure we met an accelerated timeline. John was always in communications with me and my realtor.

I would highly recommend John for either a new purchase or a re-fi (he also helped us with our re-fi not too long ago). Purchasing a house can be a stressful time, but John made the whole process easy. Thank you.”

“Dear John and Angela,

Ron and I would like to thank you for all your time and effort to making it possible to get our home.

We are so happy to be in a home again.


– Ron and Janine L.

“Dear John & Angela,

I just wanted to let you know that it was a pleasure working with both of you! This “crazy” process with Kristin’s house could have been a lot worse if both of you had not been so professional, helpful and patient. You helped to keep us calm & explained things that needed clarification.

Kristin is happier than I have seen her in a long time and that makes me happy. Thanks for being a part of that. Repairs & remodeling have already begun on her home. We appreciate your help.


– Joe & Deb L.

“John and Angela,

I just wanted to send a quick thank you for everything.  The custom wine bottle is such a neat idea and a very thoughtful gift.  Thank you for all of your help through the closing process and all of the future help I know you’ll provide!

I would highly recommend your team to anyone I know looking for a mortgage lender!”

 – Rachel B.

“I have known John professionally for a number of years and I had referred my own daughter and her husband his way a few years ago. Well came time for me and my wife I talked with John and I knew he would take care of everything. He and his assistant Angela were very efficient directing every part of the process. I was very impressed and would refer John anytime with full confidence that the experience would be as good as mine was. You folks have a treasure there.”

– Ed T.

“Had a very good experience. Very quick!”

– Kenneth C., Marco Island, FL

“Everything was perfect! I’ll definitely recommend you to others.”

– John P. & Sarah J.

“Dear John:
My wife and I would like to extend our thanks to you and your team for a great partnership. As you can imagine, getting a new mortgage for our relocation was certainly not something that most people enjoy.

Our goal was to find a company that could instill trust and guide us through the process as we embarked on relocating from Ohio. From our very first meeting, my wife and I were at ease and felt like your team would be great to work with.

You did not disappoint… the financing process, while seen as a burden to most, was quite seamless as we were kept up to date from start to finish.
You have certainly built a great organization in Grand Rapids and we would highly recommend your company and team to others.

– Kevin & Heather G.

“John has been great to work with. In our current market getting a home loan to go through has become more and more difficult for many of my clients. John’s expertise is exceptional and he knows how to get the job done. I have found that even for the more difficult (creative oriented) types of financing; if there’s a way – John will find it and get it done. He is efficient and very professional. I highly recommend him and his staff.”

– Sue P.

“John’s attention to detail and expert advice has made the financing of my last 2 home purchase very smooth and simple. I strongly recommend John to anyone looking for a mortgage in the wonderful current economy.”

– James S.

“John is a top notch professional in the dynamic mortgage industry. His attention to detail, personalized service and industry knowledge make him a valuable resource. I would definitely recommend John to anyone looking for guidance or direction for their home mortgage”

– Greg E.

“John, My Sincere thanks to you and your team. I so appreciate everything you’ve all done to get me through the process to buy my home! I will surely share my great experience with others about the great people at Benchmark.”

– Mary Jane D. …and kids:)

“This company was truly amazing, and we have already told others. THANK YOU SO MUCH!”

– Anonymous Buyer

John-Just wanted to say thanks again for walking me through all of this. You guys made something big and scary very easy for me. I’ll make sure to send people your way when I get the chance. You guys were great.

– Nick

John and his office staff are extremely efficient and were a pleasure to work with! I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase real estate.
