Karen Parry

Karen Parry  |  Mortgage Loan Originator  |  NMLS #388918  |  LO #30152

Karen was raised in Northern Michigan & relocated to Naples, Florida in late 1984. She began her career in Financial Services in 1997 by entering the field of Mortgage Lending. Frustrated with how other companies were run & feeling that clients' needs were not always the priority, she opened her own Mortgage Brokerage business, Benchmark Home Mortgage, in 1999. Along with her business partner over the next 7 years, her business grew to 5 offices in Naples, Fort Myers & Germany & 40 employees. In 2006 she was expecting her second child & made what turned out to be a very good decision to sell her share of the company to her then two business partners. She continued to work with them until 2009. She took a few years thereafter to explore another branch of Financial Services, insurance. However, she never really felt at home in that arena.  
Therefore, when the opportunity to join Best Interest Mortgage in 2014 appeared, she jumped at the chance. It was appealing to her, especially because their mission statement put simply is:
“We Keep Your Best Interest In Mind!” 

Best Interest Mortgage, coincidentally, was also established in 1999. She chose it due to the fact that it is a brokerage business as opposed to a lender.  
As a Mortgage Brokerage Business they work with various lenders & are not confined to just one.  This gives them the ability to search for the lender that best fits the client’s needs.  
They do Conventional, FHA, VA, Jumbo, Construction, USDA, Foreign National, Purchase, Refinance & Specialty/Niche products.  They have Fixed & ARM rates available. Their processing is done in-house, hence they deliver hands on, superior service. 

Karen, her husband Bill & their two children, Emilie (16) & Jackson (12) live in Naples. They enjoy camping, sailing, power boating, kayaking, biking & travelling.  
She is very involved in her children’s schools & her church.
