Tell Us Your Story

This is our 2nd time working with Ben.

He is the best! He is extremely knowledgeable, forthright, understanding and has a lot of great advice to offer. He definitely keeps you calm and focused in the storm of buying and/selling. His years of expertise, sharpness and intelligence reassure you that he’s not leading you astray or into a regretful decision. Would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!


We had the unfortunate event of having our kitchen ceiling ending up on our kitchen floor, after a pipe burst in our home.

We were out of town and Ben found the issue the morning after the incident. He helped turn off the water source and helped with logistics getting the clean up crews to work. I appreciated his patience and assistance throughout the insurance claim; and once the claim and work was complete, we had a buyer right away. Closing was never easier, and I had complete faith in Ben at all times.

Ben was extremely helpful in getting my wife and I through the process of finding a great home.

He has a great knowledge of the Grand Rapids area and has extensive knowledge on the differences in structure between different styles and ages of homes. He also had great advice when it came to possible modification of the homes we saw. He had prompt responses to all of our questions and was there every step of the way from showings to closing!

My husband and I just finished the process of purchasing our first home with Ben as our realtor, and he was outstanding.

He was prompt with any and all questions. As well as polite, patient, and took his time to detail the entire process of buying a home. He has built an excellent circle of individuals he can recommend for various services. We would not hesitate to recommend Ben to a friend, and would certainly use him in the future!

Working with Ben was the best possible experience we could have ever had with finding a house.

He listened to what we wanted and made appropriate suggestions to us. Every house we looked at he made sure that it was a good fit, not just based on our criteria, but also based on the structure of the house, the cleanliness, the internals, etc. He is EXTREMELY knowledgeable about houses, their era, why things were built a certain way, and what to look out for. I would recommend Ben to anybody and everybody looking to find a house, because he won't just get you in a house, he will get you in a house you will be thrilled with.
