Testimonials

Ben represented me in buying a condo in a market with a very low inventory where condos were moving quickly out of the market, 1-3 days. What I like the most is his promptness in responding to my emails, calls, requests for viewing, making an offer, changing the offer... whatever was needed. He is flexible, fast, and excellent to work with: viewings were scheduled in a matter of hours if necessary due to the hot market. At the same time he was not pushing me to make a decision. He was 100% dedicated.

Ben was always there whenever we asked him to be. As first time home buyers, with complicated viewing availability due to travel and work schedules, Ben was incredibly flexible and made the process an enjoyable one. He always listened - whether it was the first property we looked at or the twenty-fifth. We never felt pressured, but Ben was quick to let us know about new properties and the status of properties we had viewed and expressed interest in. We would highly recommend Ben if you are looking for an insightful and low pressure agent.

Ben is a consummate professional and could not have been more friendly, knowledgeable about the Seattle condo market and sales process, and ready with invaluable judgment and insights. He was really the key to getting a good transaction done in record time with minimal headaches. He is easy and fun to work with and I only wish I had more condos to sell with him.

From the moment we contacted him for his assistance selling our condo to after dropping off the keys to the house he helped negotiate for us, Ben was an utmost professional. He responds to questions and suggestions immediately and was available whenever we had questions. Ben was instrumental to the success of our rather seamless sale and purchase. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him in the future.

Ben was a Realtor par excellance! He had a particular challenge in working with me across country. I found several properties on Zillow and contacted Ben. He immediately responded and zeroed in on a number which fit my requirements prior to coming out to shop in Seattle. He found the one that my heart went out to prior to my shopping expeditions which gave me a chance to gather opinions from people I cared about. I looked at all the properties but the comparison deepened the determination. Ben's cheer leading and gentle humor kept me on track during the difficult real estate time of fall, 2013. With hard work, competence, and good spirits, this tale obviously had a happy ending.
