He is very adept at analyzing the pro's and con's of each particular property and he takes pride in giving his clients a very honest opinion. "I, very carefully assess and communicate what expenses my clients would encounter in the short term and throughout their period of ownership and the bigger picture I am always analyzing is resale value down the road." Ben also takes the time to consider the lifestyle investment his clients are making. "For some, it is school driven and for others it is driven by recreation and nearby amenities, for others it is proximity to work and for many it is a combination of the above. First and foremost, I want my clients investing their money in a quality home but I also want them happy with where they are living day to day."
