    My Client Testimonials

    My wife and I really enjoyed working with Ben. He wasn't pushy and let us set the pace of our search. He always went out of his way to get any additional information we needed about a property and was always available to meet and/or write an offer at anytime (which is nice in a competitive market). The website he uses to track potential properties and send alerts really makes the buying process simple and you don't waste a lot of time on houses that don't fit your criteria. The house we purchased needed sprucing up before we moved in and Ben worked with us on finding and showing the property to many quality contractors to do the work (which he wasn't required to do). We can definitely say without a doubt that Ben will take care of you!
    Ben has helped me buy two houses and sell 1. Both times have been great experiences. Ben is very knowledgeable of the market and knows his stuff when it comes to negotiations. God knows I was not the easiest client (very picky) but he stuck with us through thick and thin to help us find the perfect house. Couldn't reccomend Ben's services anymore!
    My husband and I were moving to Richmond and only had one weekend free that we could use to find a house.. Ben not only provided us with ample amounts of houses to review on a web site he set up for us, he also arranged viewing of every house we wanted to see and in the time frame that worked for us. He was extremely dedicated and made sure we saw every listing that peaked our interest. Additionally, Ben provided expert opinion about the different neighborhoods of Richmond so that my husband and I could find a place that would work for our family even though we had never been to Richmond before. He then guided us through the home buying process helping us every step of the way as it was our first time. He was very patient in explaining the different parts of the contract and helping us to understand all the steps that lead up to closing. We even had some difficulties arise with our mortgage lender and he was there to give advice. In the end I felt that he was very honest and I was confident in the home we selected with the informative input from Ben. I've heard horror stories about peoples' experiences in buying their first home but with Ben it was a breeze. With him we found a perfect first home for our family and got everything we wanted out of the deal. We are very happy with our experience and would highly recommend working with Ben. If we need to buy another house we will definitely work with him again.
    I've worked with Ben on the purchase of two different houses; one in 2008 and one in 2014. Ben made our home buying experience enjoyable by helping us locate the right house at the right price without having to comb through thousands of listings. After describing what we were looking for, he was able to make helpful suggestions to help us narrow our search and focus on houses that would fit our needs. His knowledge of the local markets was very beneficial and he was able to answer all of our questions about the various neighborhoods, school systems, etc. He's very knowledgeable in the various aspects of real estate transactions and guided us through the process every step of the way. He advised us on price and negotiated hard to get us the deal we wanted. I would highly recommend him.
    My wife and I have worked with Ben on several properties we have purchased in the Richmond and Middle Peninsula area over the past 8 years. ! He has made all transactions very easy and straight forward. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced agent in the Richmond market. He is our go to guy!!
    We used Ben to help us relocate from out of state in the summer of 2014. With careers, children and limited scouting trips available to us, it was extremely important that we expedited our time wisely when it came to viewing potential homes. Ben was able to schedule a showing for every house we had on our list (40) while we were in town for a three day weekend. When we finally found a home that was perfect for us, Ben did an excellent job of negotiating, it was clear he was working for our interests. We received a very high level of service an responsiveness. Ben was professional, likable and very good at his job. After being in our home for a few months, Ben has followed up a couple of times to see if there was anything else that needed attention. I will certainly use Ben in the future and feel very comfortable recommending his services.
    Ben was an excellent realtor for us, extremely responsive and willing to go out to show us houses any time, often on short notice. His experience as a contractor and handyman was useful as well, as he was able to quickly identify and point out potential flaws or problems in a house, or offer suggestions for fixing up or improving a room. He is very knowledgeable about the local market, and was a huge help for us throughout the entire process of buying our first home.
    I have purchased two homes with Ben and hope to purchase more with his help. He is knows the area and the industry well. He handles himself very professionally and explains the process very thoroughly. I love the fact that he checks in from time to time. He has given me no reason to look for help from another agent. Keep up the good work Ben!
    Helped me and my wife sell our house and purchase a new one. Was always available and and made process painless. Very knowledgable about the area. Will continue to use in the future and will recommend to anyone looking to sell or buy a house.
    Ben was absolutely amazing to work with! We were first time home buyers at the time and Ben was more then helpful walking us through the process step by step. No matter the time of day, he was always responsive and happy to help. I could not imagine a better home buying experience and we look forward to working with Ben in the future!
    My wife and I were extremely lucky to have had Ben as our Realtor. As first time home-buyers, we weren't super familiar with the process. In our first meeting, Ben explained everything from beginning to end to make sure we were comfortable. He listened to everything we wanted and as we began looking at houses was able to point out things that we never would have thought of or noticed. He was super responsive and patient with us, and in the end we purchased a home that we never dreamed we'd find. Ben is the best and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.
    Ben was great! He advised us well on how to prepare the house to sell and he helped price the house just right to get it under contract within 2 weeks! When looking at homes he was very good at pointing out the pluses and minuses. When we did find a great house, he helped to negotiate a great price for us too!
    Ben definitely brought his "A" game to the table with the listing and selling of my house as well as the process of assisting me in finding my new perfect location and home for my future. I was extremely impressed with his flexibility in schedule to accommodate me as well as his patience in the process of searching for a new place. He is very knowledgeable about many different locations/counties in and surrounding Richmond. He stood beside me through every step of the way which made my process of selling and buying less traumatizing and more exciting for me.Not only did I accomplished my goal of selling/buying, but I have made a new friend along the way; Ben will call me from time to time just to say Hi.
    Ben was a great agent to me. His time researching what I was looking for in a home, was to the "T". His knowledge and expertise helped me through a frustrating mortgage application. His understanding of the situation, along with his assistance in fighting the "stress" from the beginning to the signing was a tremendous help. He is HIGHLY recommended for the tedious days of "house hunting" ! Tks. Ben .....

    The Best Field Trips on the Internet (Part 1)

    For most of us, Spring Break this year didn't feel very Spring Break-y. For many of us, travel restrictions, stay-at-home orders, venue closures, and school cancellations have made this year's week off feel like anything but a holiday. Fortunately, there are plenty of fun destinations to be found on the Internet for both kids and adults. From zoos to parks to aquariums, here are some recommendations for animal watching that don't involve hours of travel, searching for clean bathrooms, or expen...

    Stuck Inside? Take Virtual Hikes!

    It's finally spring—the weather is warming up, flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and it's a great time for families to be outside. Unfortunately, in the midst of the current health crisis, some of the usual spots for group outings are off-limits: playgrounds, some parks, picnic shelters, etc. Kids are home from school for the umpteenth day, and many parents are now working from home and struggling to find activities for their children beyond the work that schools have provided. Plus, when...
