Ben is very easy to work with, and works with you to develop the information you need to make a decision.

Although we always do a lot of digging for ourselves (with regard to schools, traffic, and crime -- you should too!), Ben made calls to the city and county to get information on zoning, permits, and future development that helped us evaluate the properties we were interested in. Nice!

Ben also has contacts within the community to help you price different services you may need to improve the property you want, so that you can better understand the costs.

We would absolutely refer Ben to a friend, acquaintance, or stranger! He helped us so much, we are first time home buyers and he took the time to walk us through everything we needed to know without overwhelming us. We trusted him from the first meeting. He provided extremely valuable feedback and advice and we believe he is the reason we were able to land our first house with a near perfect buying experience (the market is competitive right now for buyers! make sure you have an educated agent like Ben on your team!). Not only was Ben extremely knowledgeable, but he was also extremely easy to communicate with and he was always available (even at the worst times). We cannot thank Ben enough for everything he has done, we look forward to working with him again in the future.

Ben is everything a real estate agent should be: patient, available, forthright, informed, and just plain nice. He took time to learn our interests and goals. Because we like as much information as we can get, he spent time explaining the ins and outs of specific homes and also the home buying process. As first time home buyers, we couldn't have felt better taken care of. We are in love with our new home and it's thanks to Ben's help that we were able to get an offer accepted in a crazy, crazy market.

Ben is the BEST Real Estate Agent we've ever had the pleasure of working with. He is so thoughtful in knowing what you want and he tries very hard to get it for you, as well as in your price point. He really cares about his clients!!!

I would work with Ben again in a heartbeat. He and his team were great. They were supportive, helpful, responsive and a lot of fun to work with. My house went on the market quickly and sold even quicker. I couldn't ask for a better experience.

Ben has been a pleasure to work with through the entire process of purchasing a home, which was our first home purchase. He has always been quick to respond, even when he did not have the answer. We have a limited budget and needed specific attributes and location because we have a special needs child. Ben never showed us a property outside of our budget or area. He never pushed us to a higher priced property, even though the mortgage company was willing to loan us more than we could realistically spend.

He was available when we asked and went out of his way to help. For example, our key transfer date was during a snow storm and we were stuck in our old apartment. Ben made sure to pick up the keys and bring them to us. Ben also made sure to be available when our work and child care schedules allowed us to view properties and have our phone conversations.

His recommendations for inspection, cleaners, mortgage officer, and everyone else we asked help were all excellent people to work with and did a great job.

Going through this process of purchasing a home seemed smooth and easy as possible. My wife and I both have Ben to thank for making it easy, pleasurable, and we ended in a place that fit exactly what we wanted.

Ben was so amazing to work with! He took the time to get to know us, ask us questions, and learn our likes and dislikes. In fact he got to know us so well, we trusted him to go look at houses for us while we were both out of state. We even put an offer in on a house sight unseen, trusting Ben's judgment. AND that's the house that we are now living in and absolutely LOVING IT! We can't say enough good things about our experience working with Ben! Professional, responsive, kind, knowledgeable... the list goes on.

Ben helped in both the selling of our previous home and the buying of our new home. We highly recommend him! We interviewed three different realtors before deciding on Ben and we never regretted our choice. He has a calm and caring personality, he listens and tries to truly understand your goals in buying and selling a house, he responds to emails and phone calls extremely quickly, and he never tries to push you into an offer that your really don't want. On top of that, he has a lot of personal knowledge about housing construction which gives him the ability to give a very good "pre-inspection" of a home as you are looking. This really saved us from putting in offers on houses that would likely have had hidden issues that might not have surfaced until a home inspection. And, since the buying of our home, Ben has kept in touch with us and been very helpful with providing advice as the unforeseen issues that always come with buying a house come up.

Ben is the only person I trust with my real estate purchases. He is always honest and takes the time to check on all possible property issues. He truly wants to see his clients happy with their decisions.
