Residential Real Estate Broker (10 years experience)
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in President Park, Renton, WA.
Ben was immediately responsive and always made himself available to show us homes at a moments notice, which was very important in today's market. We were able to tour and buy a house that was 1 day on the market and already had multiple offers. Ben's expertise with pricing and negotiation was very big in the multiple offer situation and was significant in us getting the home with a financed offer without over paying. He was great to work with and has unmatched professionalism, I would recommend Ben to anyone.

Ben Hoefer is an excellent agent! He is very knowledgeable about homes in the Seattle area. Ben also was very patient and explained the entire process to us as first time homebuyers. He went above and beyond while helping us find a house. Once we found a house we loved he continually checked on it for us and helped us negotiate. Ben is very open and honest and not only is a great realtor but also a great friend! I would highly recommend him.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $325K in Phinney Ridge, Seattle, WA.
Ben helped me purchase my first home in Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. Ben made the process very smooth and simple, which I think is important for first-time home buyer. He definitely knows the area well and can provide valuable insight. He also has a thorough knowledge of construction and area building codes, which certainly came in handy in my home search. I would definitely recommend Ben to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $750K in Mercer Island, WA.
Ben is utterly fantastic. He both sold our house (in this bad economy in 1 week for more than we had planned) and found us our next house. Ben is responsive, able to work in multiple markets in different neighborhoods, and really interested in understanding your particular needs without trying to change your mind or push you into spending more than your plan. We cannot recommend Ben highly enough.
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $600K in Newcastle, WA.
Ben Hoefer did a remarkable job listing and selling our home. He suggested steps we could take to present the home in a way that highlighted the positive features, assisted with the staging and presented a marketing plan to make our home stand above others in the area. He executed the marketing plan as promised and was able to sell our home in 2 1/2 weeks in a depressed market, obtaining a favorable selling price for us.
Two years earlier Ben assisted us with selling my mother's condo with the the same approach and result. He is very professional, knowledgable of the market and has great ideas on presentation of the home. He develops a marketing plan specific to the home that includes professional photography for use in the web listing and fliers. Ben made it possible for us to retire and move to the sunshine. We have recommended him to several friends who have had the same experience.
