Priscilla Benkowski builds genuine connections with her customers and helps them prepare for home ownership. Joining Guaranteed Rate as a producing branch manager after 22 years in the banking and mortgage industry, she leads a team of loan officers while herself originating and serving clients in need of home financing.
“One word to describe me is ‘passionate,’” says Benkowski. “When I first got into sales over 30 years ago, I read a book by my favorite author, Zig Zigler, called ‘See you at the top.’ Zig says, ‘You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.’ Those words have been my driving force in all that I do.”
With over two decades of management experience, Benkowski is a nurturing leader. She sees her job as removing obstacles that her associates face. Abiding by her mantra to “deliver good news fast and bad news faster,” Benkowski prides herself on offering effective and authentic communication. “You must keep the customer central to all you do,” she declares. “Be it their first home or their retirement castle, they deserve an honest and consultative approach.
Benkowski’s claim to fame is having lived on four continents and being able to speak three languages. She has been part of various nonprofit organizations, including Child Advocates and the Bellaire Chamber of Commerce. She looks forward to building a strong and diverse team that can serve the communities in which she and her team live. “Every year is always the best year of my life, and I expect nothing less of 2021,” she affirms.
