Meet YourBranch ManagerGuy A Benjamin

Guy Benjamin began his mortgage career in 1987. His expertise and experience in real estate finance has established him as one of the Bay Area's leading experts in the field of real estate finance. Guy started his mortgage career as a loan officer and quickly moved up in the ranks and became a partner with his previous mortgage company. Guy's leadership in the company' sales and marketing efforts helped establish them as a prominent lender in the mortgage marketplace. Guy decided to leave that company in 2007 to head up another bank's Bay Area Reverse Mortgage Team. In 2012 as the housing crisis was winding down, Guy made a decision to return to his roots as a mortgage loan originator so he could return to his passion of educating and assisting borrowers. He uses his expertise to assist borrowers in all aspects of the mortgage process. His philosophy is to be an educator first, with a strong conviction that if the consumer is armed with the best information available they can make better decisions as it relates to the financing of their home. Whether it is a young couple starting out with their first home or an elderly couple seeking income from their home with a reverse mortgage, Guy applies his unique approach to guide them through the complexities of the process. Guy was honored to receive the Affiliate of the Year award from the Solano Association of Realtors in 2014. Guy's expertise has been called on over the years to serve on numerous boards, be a featured speaker at National Mortgage organization conventions, and to write a weekly Real Estate column for the Benicia Herald. During his down time Guy enjoys racing on sailing yachts and just about anything that brings him near the water. Guy is married to Heidi, has one adult daughter, Aushlee and an absolutely adorable grandson Pierce.
