Ben Cohen’s primary motivation as a loan originator is to help people’s dreams of homeownership come true. “For most people, purchasing a home is the single largest financial decision of their life,” he says. “I enjoy being a part of something that affects people’s lives so positively and profoundly. I want my clients to be comfortable with their particular loan product, so I attempt to lay out all of their options.”

By being honest, open and transparent throughout the loan process, Cohen is able to help his clients feel comfortable every step of the way, boosting his referral business. He also strives to continually build new relationships while staying connected with prior clients and referral partners.

“When called upon to achieve the impossible and save deals that other lenders could not close, I have consistently come through,” Cohen says. “Quite simply, my goal is to continue to offer the best customer service with the lowest rates and lowest costs possible to my clients.”
