Preferred Partners


My name is Alexa Ward, Loan Officer on The Rick Ward Lending Team at Benchmark. I have spent most of my life in Colorado Springs and am blessed to call Colorado home! I take pride in upholding 5 Star Service to everyone I meet and have the pleasure to serve.

I work for my Father, Rick Ward, who is a US Army Veteran and is no stranger to the competitiveness it takes in earning your business. As they say, the apple doesn’t fall far from The tree. I am a former Women’s College Basketball player, who enjoys a sense of Team, which is what I plan to deliver with each and every transaction.

I love to travel the world and experience different cultures! I have a travel bug that’s for sure, and want to check every continent off my bucket list! You can usually find me working or reading a book in a local coffee shop, or hanging out in a hole in the wall listening to live music. I would be honored to call myself YOUR Lender!
