Our Clients Love Us

“Could not have been happier with Ben and his team, from the listing process to the closing everything was seamless. Not only did he sell our house in 3 weeks, they sold it over list! Highly recommended – thank you!”

– Nick Tomlinson

“Ben is hands down the best agent we have ever had. He sold us our current house three years ago when he was with a different company. We followed him to his new company, and he is now selling the house and helping us buy a farm. Ben is extremely knowledgeable of the area from growing up here and has always put his clients best interest first. We have been searching for a farm for two years with him and he has stuck by our side and has jump through many obstacles we encountered and our insecurities. He has become a friend and we could never express our upmost gratitude for everything he has done for us with any word or review. Our family and the friends we have recommended for him as their agent had similar experiences and we will never search for any other agent in any future purchases. We highly recommend Ben.”

– Emily Pecic 

“Ben and Dana were awesome in our buying and selling process. They make it easy to make the right decisions because of their knowledge of the market. They provided great advice based on market data and their experience. They are also outstanding people to talk to and work with! We will never use anyone else.”

– Mason Novess

“Ben was the absolute right choice! Our house sold in 5 days at full price and Ben made the process stress-free for us. He’s exceptionally professional, communicative, and knowledgeable. Highly highly recommend!

– Michael Nordmann

“Ben was an invaluable resource for me & my wife throughout our (first) home purchase. Our goal was to find a quality house, in a good location, close to family, in a safe neighborhood, and (of course) in an affordable price-range. After walking through over 35 properties, we found exactly what we were looking for! I wasn’t exactly sure what value a professional like Ben would bring to the table, or if we even needed to hire a realtor, but after such a positive experience, I can’t imagine doing it without him. He was able to show us every (listed) house we wanted to walk through, and brought some additional ideas to the table to maximize our time & effort(s). Whether you know exactly what you’re looking for, or are exploring potential opportunities, we’d highly recommend partnering with Ben as a local resource. He is knowledgeable, professional, and very patient throughout the discovery process.”

– Jeffrey Hollenbeck 

“Dana is probably the best decision you can make in real estate, if you want to sell high and/or buy low. She is extremely knowledgeable about the greater Lansing area and within her profession. Additionally, maybe more importantly, she is a pleasure to work with and has a vast professional network she uses to your great advantage.”
