Marty Preston, Branch Manager of Benchmark, truly knows what it takes to deliver excellence in every area of his life. A consistent Top Producer and one of the country’s premier mortgage lenders, Marty is also a nationally known speaker and a major force in the national mortgage banking scene.

Preston’s success comes as no surprise to those who know him well. Going the extra mile is standard for him; he has made reliability his promise, and integrity his benchmark. His commitment to putting the interests of his clients at the forefront of every transaction has earned him a loyal base of customer support as well as a strong foundation of referral business within the Real Estate and Financial Services communities.

Marty credits his success, in great part, to the fact that he and his staff of top-flight professionals have developed a system of teamwork. This system is based on honesty, accessibility, attention to detail and extensive knowledge of every facet of the mortgage loan process. His clients know that he and his team will tailor the loan program to meet their specific needs in the most efficient and expedient manner possible. With nearly five decades of lending experience, Marty and his staff are committed to making each client a “Raving Fan.”

Through his team’s “Client for Life” strategy, Marty has the ability to truly add value beyond the closing by assisting clients throughout the life of their loan. In addition to in-house underwriting, state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge customer service, Marty and his team are always there personally to answer questions and make sure every detail is covered.

Marty was raised in Paintsville, Kentucky and graduated from the University of Kentucky where he earned a B.S. in Accounting. In 2004, he became the first Certified Mortgage Planner in the state of Kentucky and is still 1 of less than 20 in the state, 6 of which are within his firm. Although Marty’s life is very active, this dynamic professional still finds time to devote to his community. He often speaks at local universities and civic groups, while still remaining very active in his church. He has previously served as the Executive Vice President of the Kentucky Association of Mortgage Planners and also participates as a volunteer for several key organizations.

Marty is an avid sportsman and loves caddying for his son Jansen who is a Junior World Golf Champion. In spite of his successful career and the many demands on his time, there is no doubt what comes first in Marty Preston’s life: it is his commitment to his family. Time spent with his family is his top priority and one of his favorite pastimes. Marty, Ragan, and their four children reside in the Lexington area.
