Client Testimonials

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.
Steve & Chris

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.
Tim & Sarah

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. You will not find a harder working agent in Seattle than Ben Kakimoto.
