Ben and his team are on top of things and provided prompt and through service. Automatic updates and dealing with the details were especially appreciated. They are a relationship group and I look forward to our next deal — Jim .B.
I've had the privilege of working with Ben as a homebuyer while searching for a townhouse in Seattle. Having worked as a land broker for developers, Ben knows and have worked with quite a few builders himself. His unique experience lends a lot of refreshing insights to the townhouse search, and his generosity with his knowledge meant that I gained a great deal of helpful info that a typical buyer's agent may not be able to provide.
In tangible gains, Ben negotiated aggressively and helped get me the townhouse I wanted a fair bit below list price, as well as a chunk of extra credits for blinds from the seller. Most importantly, he located through his connections a mortgage lender who had secured a rate lock. This got me an interest rate a full 0.5% below post-election market rates - a significant amount of savings that I would have missed out on without Ben's help. After closing on the house, he helped follow up with the builders on pending repairs, even got a thoughtful gift to congratulate me on closing on the house.
On a personal level, Ben was extremely patient throughout this entire process. I insisted on viewing literally every townhouse on the market, and Ben obliged without complaint for months. He is also a ton of fun to be around - great sense of humor, always honest with his opinions, and always had some awesome snacks on hand to survive the long hours of house hunting.
Highly recommend Ben for his work in the Seattle market, and many thanks for everything he has helped me accomplish!
“Everything we wanted and more.”
Ben is an extremely hard working agent. He has very good knowledge of the Seattle market. He gave me good advice when it came to the things to look for when purchasing homes. He helped me search for open market homes/ short sales and foreclosures. He showed me homes that spanned a long period of time. He not only showed me homes that are right for me but also looked at them from an investment perspective. — Aditya
My spouse and I worked with Ben on our first home. He was patient despite the fact that we were picky. He wasn't a "pushy salesperson". He had a good understanding of what we wanted even if we weren't always able to articulate it. — John
“Stellar, professional service.”
.Ben is an incredibly helpful agent. While not only listening to what we required (an extensive list of needs), he also thinks outside of exact needs for other possibilities. By no stretch pushy, he is always attentive and willing to assist when necessary.— Eddie
“2 thumbs way up!”
Ben was responsive to my needs and was tireless in looking for condos for me. Living of town, I relied on Ben to look for listings, email them and find the "jewels" that would meet my needs. I was impressed with his ability to listen and understand almost immediately what I was looking for--his knowledge of the neighborhoods, market and trends was impressive and very important to me. I highly recommend Ben--you can't go wrong with his skills and passion for Seattle real estate! — David W.
