Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Modesto, CA.

Ben acted as our listing agent and sold our home, dealing with a great many contingencies, working to help the buyers who had no agent of their own. In the middle of selling our house we came across a home we wanted to buy, and within an hour Ben met us at the new location and had negotiated the purchase of the new home. He was always responsive, dealt with any issues with patience and a positive perspective. A positive experience as both a listing agent, a selling agent, and a buying agent all in a period of two months. Highly recommend

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $900K in Modesto, CA.

Ben knew exactly the type of home we were looking for and guided us through a complex short sale home buying process. He was great to work with every step of the way and extremely knowledgeable of every aspect of buying a home, right down to recommending great service providers for insurance, title agent, inspectors, etc. We wouldn't have the home of our dreams without Ben B.!

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Modesto, CA.

Ben conducted a short sale on our home. He told us from the beginning that a short sale market can be very slow moving and can prove to be trying experience wise on homeowners. That being said, as slow as we anticipated the sale to occur, Ben was always there, checking in by phone call, email or text. He was creative in locating potential buyers and continually checked in with us to keep us informed and up to date. Even when we feared we had lost contact with a potential buyer, Ben was on the move to re-establish contact. That buyer was relocated thanks to Ben, and low and behold the offer was accepted. So with Ben at the helm and giving our former home to the hands of the Lord, the sale went through. If I had to do it all over again, Ben would definitely be our first realtor of choice, hands down, no doubt.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Modesto, CA.

We came to Ben to help us purchase a second home. Based on our previous experience we thought we would have to do a lot of the leg work, but Ben did a great job understanding what we were looking for and helping us eliminate homes from our list based on that knowledge. We were in a very difficult situation and ad to get a home very quickly. Ben was quick to respond to any of our requests and never made us feel as if we were burdening him with our requests. During this stressful time, Ben was the even keel we needed in order to make the right decision. Ben would be the first person I would recommend to anyone looking to buy a first home, an investment property, or for advice on short sales or foreclosures.
