My family has been in the real estate business for 30+ years in this area, and I am proud to say I am a life long North Idaho resident as well.  This exposure to our local real estate community provides me with insights into our growing neighborhoods and cities.  I graduated from the University of Idaho with a degree in finance and relocated home to begin my career.  

Mountain West Bank’s products and reputation combined with my experience and education motivate me to provide the best possible service for my customers because I understand and love this community. 

I will work for you to give you the best and most positive experience when you purchase your home.  Whether you are a first time home buyer, an experienced homeowner who wishes to refinance, or an investor, I can help you succeed in the real estate market place.

"Lauren Benz was an absolute pleasure to work with! She is very responsive, knowledgeable and professional. We will use Mtn West again on our construction/permanent loan due to the experience we had with Lauren. We will also move our personal banking from Wells Fargo to Mtn West when we relocate to Idaho based on our great experience with Lauren."
