"Ben was a tremendous partner and quarterback for our relocation to Chicago from SF! We would not have been able to find a place we loved on our timeline without a broker like Ben. He spent the time to understand what our must-have’s and desired criteria were in mid November. Over the course of 3 weeks, he sent us 150+ Properties to review in advance of a super Saturday of showings in December. He drove us around all day to look at 20 properties knowing we could only fly out for a weekend. He then coached us from initial offer to final close, informing us of what we needed to know every step of the way. He earned our trust in our first meeting and we felt we were in the best hands. Work with Ben, you will be very happy with where you end up! We certainly are." - Kyle

"As a first time home buyer, Ben was great! He helped navigate me through the ups and downs of house hunting, was very patient, and extremely knowledgeable, and helped me be realistic about what kind of home I could both afford, and find. He also was great at creating visions of things that "could be" in houses, as he has a background in contracting and renovating as well" - Kirsten

"Ben is as good as it gets! He has now bought two homes for us and sold one - he was able to sell it off-market at a price better than we expected saving us a ton of time and energy. Each transaction was incredibly smooth due to Ben's stellar negotiation skills, attention-to-detail, and phenomenal customer service. I recommend Ben to anyone and everyone!" - Louis

"Ben helped me purchase my first condo and was incredibly helpful throughout the process. We saw 10-12 properties in total over the span of a month or so. He is generally laid back and took the time to understand what exactly I’m looking for, and shared his honest opinion about each condo we saw. He was also very tactical when we started negotiating with the seller’s agent. Would highly recommend Ben, especially for a first home purchase!" - Chang

"Ben is nothing short of exceptional with his process and skill set in real estate. If you're looking for a fun, knowledgable agent who is going to work hard for you, Ben is that guy. We always felt Ben had our best interest at heart and was always transparent, which we appreciate! Thank you Ben for making the process seamless and getting us a great deal on our place!" - Ross
