Ben is a model for a great real estate agent! Over this last year he helped us sell our home, then find a new home. He sold our home with multiple offers within 1 week after put it on the market. He took it over from our previous agent who was unable to sell it over the previous 6 months. Ben took the very patient approach of doing a detailed market analysis, bringing in a professional stager to make the home more appealing, giving us time to respond to feedback from stager. The end result was a little more time to put the home on the market, but selling the home within 1 week. In addition, he took the responsibility of responding to buyers needs or visits to the home during escrow. When looking for a home, he took the approach of getting a good feeling for the home we were looking for. Instead of taking us to see numerous homes, he instead did his research to identify potential homes for us. When we did find the right home he used his keen negotiation skills to close the deal quickly. During both escrow periods, he was accessible, and responsive, taking full ownership of ensuring smooth escrow periods, and finding simple ways to overcome hurdles as they might have appeared. Ben earned our highest recommendation, and he is our only stop should we ever enter the market again!
