For nearly two decades, Ben Cohen has proudly helped his clients achieve their homeownership dreams, landing him at the top of the industry. He understands the significance of buying a home, which is why he cherishes the opportunity to empower home buyers to confidently make life’s biggest purchase. With a simple, efficient process, his goal is to deliver superior customer service to both his clients and referral partners through every step of the mortgage journey.
“I take a consultative approach,” says Cohen. “There is no one-size-fits-all solution. I give every client the best mortgage plan that fits their financial goals.”
Building relationships with his clients and referral partners is one of his favorite aspects of working in mortgage lending. His clients are diverse: first-time homebuyers, move-up buyers, refinancers, investors and corporate clients, while he also provides employee benefit programs for several large corporations with offices located across the country.
His dedication to delivering a top-notch mortgage experience has helped him earn some incredible honors. Cohen was recognized among the top 10 loan originators in the country by Mortgage Executive magazine from 2017 through 2019. He was voted Best Loan Officer in Illinois in 2017 by the Illinois Mortgage Bankers Association and #1 in Illinois in 2018 from National Mortgage News. He ranked No. 5 on the National Mortgage News 2018 Top Producers list, funding nearly $300 million, and was ranked No. 9 on Scotsman Guide’s Top Originators 2017 list and No. 5 for total loan volume in the U.S. for 2018. He is also a member of Guaranteed Rate’s Chairman’s Circle and President’s Club.
In his free time, Cohen is passionate about giving back. He supports various charities, including Make-A-Wish ® Foundation, the Jewish United Fund, the Guaranteed Rate Foundation and community food drives. He also enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife and three children.
