To succeed in the mortgage industry, Ben Cohen knows there is no one-size-fits-all approach.
“My approach remains consultative,” remarks Cohen, managing director and senior vice president of lending at Guaranteed Rate. “I try to look at every mortgage with fresh eyes and give every client the best mortgage plan to meet their financial goals.”
Cohen’s approach includes being the best advisor to his clients and remaining accessible when they need him. “I always stay up to date on the latest loan products and platforms to make sure I am best advising my clients,” he shares. “I also take accountability seriously. I’m responsive 24/7/365 — my clients know they can pick up the phone and call or text me anytime.”
To Cohen, speed is one of his most valuable qualities. “I am always looking to help improve the process and utilize Guaranteed Rate’s technology to give my clients efficient and productive loan experiences,” he says. “Making the mortgage process seamless from start to finish has always been a primary goal. In addition, I am also always open to mentoring newcomers to the mortgage industry.”
Cohen’s success is driven by his true investment in helping people achieve home ownership. “I advise every client as I would a family member,” he explains. “I truly love to help people realize their dreams of homeownership, and I am so humbled to be able to help so many people accomplish their goals.”
Believing in the importance of giving back to local communities, Cohen declares, “As we grow our business, I will continue to give back and help make a difference in my community in the northwest suburbs and throughout the Chicago area.” Along with his wife and three sons, he participates in charitable initiatives such as, Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Jewish United Fund, Humble Design, the Guaranteed Rate Foundation and community food drives.
