With over 40 years of experience in helping buyers, I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing clients and friends! Here is what a few of them had to say about our experience working together.

We purchased our home in June of 2018 in the middle of a hot market. Within two days the home we wanted to purchase had 5 other offers already submitted.

Mark and his team helped me put together an offer that always kept me in first position of all the offers being considered. Mark furnished me a pre-approval letter and also a second letter directly to the sellers and their listing agent to let them be aware of the strength of my file as they considered my offer versus other offers.

In the end we were able to purchase the home, get a great interest rate, and everything went smoothly which allowed us to close on time with no surprises.

Mark Washburn:

Thank you for all your help. The way you anticipated possible problems or questions and found solutions for them before they occurred made a scary situation very workable. We hadn’t bought a home for nearly 40 years and were not knowledgeable about all the procedures involved. You answered all our questions so that we understood what we needed to do. You found programs so that I could sell my old house quickly without upsetting my new mortgage. You then arranged a way to bring down my payment without having to refinance my new loan saving me thousands of dollars and lots of time and stress. We’ve given your name to several of our friends as a resource for their mortgage needs.

Thanks again,

Kevin and Judith

If you are looking at buying a home in Utah, I would highly recommend that you work with Mark Washburn at Utah Mortgage/”Utah Home Owner Benefits” and his team of professionals.  We finished relocating from Iowa to Utah and closed our loan with him in January of 2019.  Mark helped us with every step of the process.  He gave us suggestions on how to sell our Iowa home more quickly and also followed the progress of our new home being built from beginning to end!  He communicated with us so that we never had to worry about what was happening!  Mark and his team went the extra mile to ensure that our loan was done before our deadlines, and he closed our loan exactly on time without any surprises.  He worked with all the parties involved including our agent, our company relocating department, the title companies, and the builder to make sure everything turned out perfectly in the end!  It scares us to think how things would have turned out without his help!!  You will be happily surprised at the amount of work he will do to make sure you are satisfied in the end!  We will recommend him to everyone we know who needs help with loans or homes in any way!M & A Roberts

When it comes to obtaining a mortgage, there is nobody better to have on your side than Mark Washburn. He genuinely cares about you, your family, and your future home. Not only that, but even after the acquisition, cares about your well being. Not only did he help me get into my first home (which by the way, took a year to achieve as it wasn’t a “starter” home by any means) but he also became a really good friend. He knows everyone in the industry, and all the supporting industries that will keep your mortgage healthy and fruitful. Do yourself a favor. If you’re in the market, get in touch with Mark. Even if he wasn’t your first call, I can guarantee he will be your last.

Dear Mark,

Thank you so very much for all you did to make it possible for the kids to buy their house! The process was smooth, easy and very fast! They got a great deal and are thrilled to be in a home.

Eric & Elaine


Thank you so much for  all you did for us throughout this entire process. I don’t know if we could possibly feel more positive about our experience working with you and Eric. You both always made us feel reassured and informed with what was going on. We are so excited about our new home and so happy to be moved in time for the holidays.

We will always keep you both in mind when anyone needs any recommendations for who to contact when moving, etc. You all are both fantastic and we are grateful to have met you both through this process.

You exceeded our expectations throughout this whole process start to finish. You helped in areas you were not responsible for. I will recommend anyone I know to you for lending! I loved that I didn’t get any surprises along the way. You were always straightforward and informative. Thanks for making the lending /funding part of our building /buying experience very easy.

Hi Mark,

I went through you when I bought my first home three years ago. I must say you were the most positive aspect of that first purchase.

Cody King


Thank you so much for helping us get into our first house! We cannot thank you enough for all the extra time you spent especially there at the end. It was truly a pleasure working with you and we would happily recommend you to anyone!

Thanks again!
