Ben Burkett

Branch Manager/Loan Originator | NMLS# 269591

Meet Ben, an enthusiastic and experienced Loan Originator whose contagious positivity and mortgage expertise make a lasting impression on his clients. Ben is passionate about providing a client experience that exceeds even the highest expectations. He understands how exciting and nerve-wracking buying a home is, so he ensures that his clients’ experiences are seamless and stress-free. Ben’s dedicated, reliable, and customer-oriented team will put you first, and keep you updated on your loan every step of the way. Ben’s team is reachable day and night, weekday or weekend, and considers it a privilege to be available to you whenever you need them. Ben provides you with the personal touch that only a small, tight-knit team can, with the financial backing and resources of NFM Lending, a national corporation.

When he’s not busy helping his clients achieve their financial goals, Ben enjoys spending quality time with his wife of over 20 years, Catherine, and their beautiful daughter, Catie. He is an unabashed “gymnastics dad,” who takes pride in his daughter’s athleticism and enjoys cheering for her at competitions. Ben is an active member of River Road Church Baptist, the VCU Business Alumni Society, and the Dominion Club.

Ben’s desire to help others is what led him to start a career in mortgage 20 years ago, and he hasn’t looked back since! In an industry with extreme highs and lows, Ben has continually stayed ahead of the pack. He is routinely ranked in the top 1% of mortgage originators in the country and is consistently one of NFM Lending’s top 30 highest-producing Loan Originators. He is proud to say that the majority of his current clients are referred to him by past clients — proof of his ability to provide a truly first-in-class experience.

In his spare time, Ben enjoys attending sporting events, going for rides in his JEEP with his golden retriever Cooley, and doing anything active outdoors with his family.

Ben looks forward to helping you with your mortgage financing needs.
