Rick BenoitLoan Originator
Let me help you get the right loan, the right way.
As a licensed mortgage professional for more than 25 years, I have the knowledge, training, and experience to match the perfect mortgage product to your individual financial picture. Trust me to negotiate the rate and terms that best fit your budget, and to expertly navigate all legalities and paperwork involved in the process. It is my privilege and my responsibility to present you with a clear and comfortable path toward the closing table.
Whether you’re a first-time home buyer, looking to trade up or downsize, or wanting to cash in on your current home equity, it is critical that you sit down with a mortgage professional before making your next move. We’ll discuss your long term goals and budget, and make certain you have a clear and definitive picture of what type of home financing product is realistic for you.
After earning my degree in Finance at Illinois State University and an MBA from DePaul University , I started my career as a Mortgage Banker with Fifth Third Bank. The skills I acquired in that position helped me transition seamlessly into the world of Loan Origination. After acquiring my Mortgage Loan Originator license on both state and national levels, I quickly discovered that helping my clients realize their dream of home ownership was more than a career; it became a passion.
Securing a home loan may seem overwhelming - but only if you go it alone. It isn’t my job to simply get you the lowest rate possible. It’s my responsibility to educate you on the best home financing options available to you. Let me provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to make the best decisions for your future.
I was born and raised in Peru, IL, and currently reside in Hinsdale with my girlfriend Lisa and our dog, Darcy. This community has meant so much to me, and in my free time I enjoy spending time with my children, Abby and Nick, playing tennis, golf, listening to live music and reading crime novels.
