About Ben
Trusted Advisor, Skilled Negotiator, & Expert Facilitator
Faber Real Estate Team | The Key to Your Dreams®

Ben Faber is a Realtor® who knows his stats—a practice that started right from a childhood spent obsessively collecting, analyzing, and pricing baseball cards. Now he applies his naturally analytic mind to the Marin market to identify trends, patterns, and changing demographics, a practice that keeps him consistently a step ahead, with $550M+ in sales (BAREIS MLS). His mantra is to always deliver more value than expected, and interpreting the numbers is only one part of it.

As the founding agent of the Faber Real Estate Team, Ben leads a team dedicated to, quite simply, doing the best thing for each buyer, seller, or investor—every single time. Under his leadership, the team offers sellers a concierge service, drafting and managing a custom market preparation plan for each home that maximizes its value; for buyers and investors, the team draws from its knowledge of off-market listings that often require out-of-the-box dealmaking, quick thinking and of course, a deep understanding of demographics and data. Ben believes in higher standards, quality control, and excellent marketing that makes use of the latest digital tools, and applies those fundamental actions to every transaction he handles.

Born in San Francisco, raised in Larkspur, and educated at UC Santa Barbara, Ben brings a native’s expertise to his role. He’s a proactive problem-solver and a skilled dealmaker who treats every transaction as if it’s his own, passionate about homes, and committed to leveraging his intimate market knowledge for the benefit of his clients. And he’s a Marin homeowner and investor himself, with hands-on knowledge of renovation, design, and architecture, all of which make him an extremely valuable advisor. He knows every inch of Marin, loves the lifestyle—and loves to share those insights, too.

Client Testimonials
We first worked with Ben while buying our first house in 2014 and were so impressed with his thorough and professional work, that we immediately thought about him when the time came to sell it. As a buyer agent, he actively sought and suggested houses to view to meet our unusual criteria, and once we chose to make an offer, guided us through the process and helped to understand reports, loan arrangements, and so on. As a seller agent, he understood our specific priorities, he and his team did a fantastic job of prepping the house for listing within a month, kept the process organized, created amazing marketing materials, and kept us well-informed and at the same time not too overwhelmed and distracted throughout the process. The house was sold 10 weeks after we made the decision and called Ben to put it on the market. - Buyer and Seller

Ben was able to list, market, and sell my home in less than 30 days from the date we looked at offers. The 100 old home needed a specific type of buyer (not for the faint of heart.) Through his marketing, we found that buyer and the house sold for the full asking price! The process was painless and having bought and sold a lot of homes over the years I know first hand this is often not the case. He has since helped my son purchase his first home in Marin, not an easy task for first-time buyers! - Seller

Ben Faber is the top of the top! I have done multiple transactions with him over the course of 5+ years (since 2014!), and have referred many neighbors and family to him as well. He is incredibly hard-working, highly-skilled, and is one of the best negotiators I have met in real estate. Frankly, I feel it has been a privilege to have worked with Benjamin over the years, and could not have had the same level of success without his partnership. Despite taking a bit of a breather from the market at the moment, folks regularly ask me for advice about real estate and I am always glad to refer them to such a solid agent. -Buyer and Seller 

A lot of energy, enthusiasm, knowledge, and proactive response for all your needs from start to finish in selling or buying your house. He always goes out of his way to make your dream come true. - Buyer and Seller 

I’ve worked with Ben on multiple buy/sell transactions. He is professional, dedicated, and determined to strike the best deal possible. 10/10 will continue to work with him. - Buyer and Seller

Ben was great to work with. He was very thorough during the whole process, helping prep the home, holding open houses, negotiating, and anything else that came up. His communication is very direct and transparent, and very quick to get you any info as soon as it is available. Very much a pleasure to work with. - Seller

Ben helped us to buy our home in Fairfax and we had a great experience working with him. He was very committed and responsive. Ben kept us informed on every step in the process. He followed up when needed and replied to all the emails we sent within a couple of hours on any day. I really enjoyed working with Ben and his team and would recommend Ben to anyone who is buying a house. - Buyer 

I had a very short time in which to find a home. After meeting with me and determining my housing preferences, Ben immediately started the search. He contacted me daily with updates and within a short time, I had a new home. Ben was personable and attentive, he responded promptly to emails, text messages, and phone calls. Ben presented me with options, complete with Pros & Cons, and never pressured me or tried to influence me in any way. He also has a great personality which makes it really easy to work with him. I highly recommend Ben and look forward to working with him again in the future. - Renter 

Ben sold a property I held for 30 years. He exceeded my own best-case sale price by a wide margin and I always looked forward to and was happy to take his calls. It was one of the most enjoyable, effective and rewarding business transactions I've had in my 35+ year career. I interviewed and received proposals from 4 of Marin's top 25 agents. Ben clearly stood out. He drove an hour to meet me in person and to discuss current market conditions and selling scenarios. He spent a significant amount of time with me subsequently co-creating a strategy to get top dollar for my place. He respected my needs and I felt supported, like a trusted partner, never pressured or pushed, and he delivered on all his commitments throughout the process. In my opinion, there are a few key quality attributes missing from the star review above: Strategy expertise, Earns trust/confidence and Efficiency. - Seller
