Ben Greenway

    • Ben is a consummate professional. I was new to the area and despite thinking I had a full understanding of the San Diego market Ben was able to teach me new information every time we spoke. He will always look for a win-win scenario which allows him to negotiate flawlessly with other realtors, loan officers and keep the process smooth and transparent. I Definitely walked away from my downtown purchase knowing which agent I'll work with every single time I buy in the area. He's also a great resource whenever I have real estate investment questions!

    • My wife and I had a fantastic time working with Ben Greenway. We have bought two homes with him and sold one. When we were first time home buyers he took the time to meet with us and go through the process so we knew what to do even before we got prequalified. He is a great team to get you through every step of the process. Even after the sale of the house Ben will still check in every now and then. This is great because it reminds you he has a great network or handymen, gardeners, and plumbers at great rates. We have really enjoyed Ben's expertise, and looking forward to working with him in the future.

    • Ben sold my condo in less than 24 hours for over our asking price! He came over to my home when we were just thinking about starting the selling process and looked around and gave us ideas of things we needed to fix, and didn't need to fix. He also told us how to clear our home of clutter so it would show better. Ben went above and beyond hiring a professional photographer to take photos so the condo looked very appealing to people viewing online. He was able to talk to the other realtors to make sure we only had serious buyers coming to our home. He also had a sophisticated lock box that tracked which realtor, and what time they came by. This helped give me peace of mind knowing who was coming in and out of my home. Ben and his team was a real pleasure to work with and he has closed houses for 3 of our friends.

    • Finding the right realtor isn't always simple. Ben is an amazing family guy and a hardcore realtor. He helped my husband and I find and buy our home. His attention to detail, patience & enthusiasm, and professional experience won us over. He analyzes all real estate properties in San Diego and gives you a customized list of the best ones for your property. He's an efficient communicator, works hard, and even after completion of the transaction still manages to communicate with us. Good job Ben!

    • As a military family who has bought homes in several states -- Ben is by far our favorite Realtor. From Navigating San Diego's neighborhoods, explaining nuances and commute times, and truly listening to what we wanted and helping guide us to the right location -- priceless. We refer Ben to all of our friends needing an amazing resource and Realtor.

      - Jenn B.
    • It was imperative that we found a trustworthy and responsive agent as we were a military family relocating from the east to west coast. Ben came highly recommended from another family who had utilized his services successfully within their relocation. My family put our full trust in him as we bought our very first home site unseen. In fact, the first time we saw our home (nestled in Temecula right next to it's beautiful wineries) was the day we did the final walk through! Our house is our dream home and everything we imagined. Throughout the process, Ben was available to answer all questions, toured countless homes for us, and negotiated with pure perfection. Overall, Ben was a great advocate for all our home buying needs and, if needed, I would use and recommend him again and again. Also, after the home walk through Ben showed off his local knowledge and took my family to Old Town Temecula to give us a tour of the cities heart and soul. We are thankful to Ben for such a smooth and easy process. Did I mention we signed for our home on time and as expected and were able to move in ON TIME? This was central to my family as with four kids and two dogs...it would have been quite the mess if there had been any holdups. Thank you Ben!!!

    • I worked with Ben to buy my first home. He was excellent. Knew everything I needed to do to qualify for the loan, gave me great and accurate listings and if I had a suggested option, he was on top of it and got us in to see what we wanted to. Also, he has great contacts for repairs, improvements and negotiating items into the sale. I would use him again and highly recommend Ben.

      - Jason N.
    • Ben made the process so easy and guided us every step of the way. He was very patient with us too since we asked to look at least 25 different houses in a short amount of time. I never felt pressured to buy a house I wasn't fully committed on. Ben also went above and beyond when negotiating pricing and loan conditions. We had a couple hick ups with our VA loan and Ben went to bat to straighten things out. I'd definitely use Ben again.

    • We were on a short schedule for purchasing our home in California as I had been transferred rather quickly from Southern Wisconsin. Ben set up homes that fit the criteria we gave him. We saw 5-6 homes every time we met with him. After our 3rd house hunting venture we found the perfect home. He was there from the beginning to closing and was so very helpful. Even after we moved in he was always available for any questions or recommendations we had. We will never use anyone but Ben Greenway for any future home purchases.

    • Ben helped me during the entire homebuying process!! I am a Veteran and he helped me find a new Mortgage company to fund my loan when the first backed out almost last minute!! He was always available to answer questions and to ease my fears when I thought it would not work out!!!

      - nirsecnk
    • Ben is a great person to work with. He is friendly and very easy to talk with. He is great at answering our questions and he always returns phone calls; even late at night. He's knowledgeable in the real estate business and works hard. Ben even took us to look at 12 properties in one day.

      - Sara K.
    • I contacted Ben Greenway Realtor via an add on the internet and he called me. Asked me in detail what is my price range ,what I am interested and where. He send me a listing to choose and when I did he investigated the properties thoroughly before showing me the property. I knew all the details first hand. We looked at many properties until he showed me a property that is not listed as yet. I liked it. Then he advices me my options on the offer. Upon my decision , Ben and I discussed my loan and title company options. When the offer was accepted we proceed with our plans. I was very comfortable discussing what I wanted and what I can afford with Ben Greenway. With Ben Greenway's input my decision was easier. Buying a property is the most expensive purchase most people will ever do, with a lot of stress. My home close escrow in an unbelievable 9 days. He is a great person to work with and no pressure for you to buy. Ben told me the best part of the transaction is handing over the keys to the new owner. Very self satisfying he told me. It's a pleasure to work with Ben Greenway. I would recommend him in a heart beat. I wish I had known him when I sold my house in Spring Valley in 2014.

    • Ben recently represented us in the purchase of our new home in San Diego. His experience in reading the market, the seller and the situation helped us save $21,000. I was fully prepared to go full price but listened to Bens counsel and was thoroughly impressed with the outcome. His creed of treating each sale and purchase as if it were his own truly showed through. His assistance and expertise didnt end with the sale. He watched over every detail of the close, assisted in locating competent, reasonably priced subcontractors for the minor repairs required and never gave the impression he was only in it for the sale. He seems to truly love his job. We feel very fortunate to have found Ben and will definitely be sending our kids his way when theyre ready and able to buy.

      - Johansen
    • I used Ben as my realtor when I purchased my home in 2014. He was a referral from my daughter. I was very impressed how he handled my daughter's transactions when she purchased her home. I did talk to other realtors but Ben stood out with his knowledge of the real estate process, the San Diego area, his experience, and enthusiasm to find me the right home. Ben listened to my needs and wants and sent me listings that met those. Some realtors try to upsell you to spend more or push their listings. Not Ben, he really cares about his clients. I looked at many houses with Ben. I appreciated his expertise in knowing what to look for so I didn't get stuck with a money pit. He pointed out defects and items needing repair so I fully understood what I was buying. I finally found the right property and Ben was able to negotiate the price and even get me money for repairs. I was delighted the seller accepted my offer. I love my home and have Ben to thank. Ben has his clients best efforts at heart. He is an honest and upbeat individual. I will definitely use him again if I decide to sell or purchase another property.

    • My husband and I found that working with Ben was an awesome experience from start to finish. He was personable, extremely patient, and prompt. His knowledge of the real estate market was spot on. He never once made us feel he was looking for a sale, rather, his primary interest was to help us find our dream home within our budget. I am a very impulsive person and when I would text or e-mail Ben, as I so needed to see a property immediately, he always returned my messages quickly and we viewed an endless number of properties. Then I found the property of our dreams. I knew within minutes it was the one!! I recall being anxious that we would face a bidding war. Ben assisted us in offering a price that was still under the asking price but just high enough to hopefully not lose out to a higher bid. We scored and it has been a year and a half and every day I love my property even more. Ben continues to keep in touch with us as he has became like family. I like to keep current on property values and continue to keep my eye on the market. He also sends us frequent messages from happy customers who refer great services like plumbers, electricians, handymen, etc. Ben is without a doubt your go to agent!!

      - Karen K.
    • Ben was an incredible help with my first home buying experience. He helped me Feel confident with the process from start to finish. He knew the neighborhoods and helped me find exactly what I was looking for. I am so thankful for his experience. Because of Ben I am now a proud owner of what has become a great investment property. Ben also has such an incredible network of people to for things like plumbing and handyman. I liked him so much I had him help my mother and one of my friends purchase homes as well!!

      - Erin M.
    • Ben was amazing, knowledgeable and very helpful in my endeavor to purchase a home. He made a very stressful time much less stressful. He worked within my financial means and was in communication with me all steps of the way. I felt very comfortable working with him and just knew he would have my back. He was honest and transparent, no sugar coating which I appreciate very much. Ben was very responsive and always took my call or would get back to me as soon as possible. It was a pleasure to work with Ben and I would definitely have him help me again if I decide to purchase another home.

      - Cate A.
    • Ben is the guy you want helping you purchase your home. Ben helped my wife and I purchase our first home. He went above and beyond to help with all of the details and made sure to answer all of our questions along the way. I have recommended Ben to help a friend of mine purchase their first home and they shared the same positive experience.

      - David
    • Ben not only helped us buy our home but also helped us with the difficult process of selling out home. He made the process easy from the start. My ex husband and I purchased our home sight unseen (in person) while we were stationed in Japan. Ben went to the build site multiple times (over an hour away from him home) and took videos and photos to update us on the progress. He helped us every way possible. He made purchasing a home, not only easy but enjoyable. Unfortunately divorce was in our cards and we were forced to sale our home. Ben helped us get the home ready for sale, letting us know how to optimize profit and even helped us to get where we needed to be to make the sale happen. He has been very hands on and involved which meant a lot to us. He his kind and totally more concerned about the client then his check in the end. That's why I will never purchase or sell through anyone other then Ben! He has become more then just a real estate agent. He is apart of our family!

      - Liz C.
    • Ben was extremely patient and very helpful in getting me into my first home. He took the time to find out my needs and help narrow down my search to find the perfect home. Ben was able to easily explain the purchasing process and guide me through the negotiations. Ben will absolutely be my go to agent for my next purchase.

      - Brett D.
    • Ben is an honest realstate agent. When i purchased my first home, he made the process very easy, and upfront. All that i expected came to reality, and im still residing 5 year later. Ben is honest, very trustworthy. Best Agent

      - Zalalem F
    • I was buying my first home - I was looking for a beach condo - and Ben was the perfect agent! He was so knowledgeable and personable and available - he made me feel so special and taken care of. He made the whole process easy and even fun! And I found the perfect place in Solana Beach. I am very grateful to Ben and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a seamless, enjoyable experience where they are treated like a VIP!

      - Sam C
    • Buying a home is always quite a process, but having an experienced agent can make the difference between unnecessary stress and seamlessness. If you find yourself in need of a qualified real estate agent, I recommend giving Ben a call. To underscore his commitment to his clients, I will give an example how Ben went above and beyond: I moved from one area to another much further away (about a two hour drive with no traffic), and the rental truck was loaded up, but there was no guarantee that someone would be there to give me the keys when we arrived. The city had not yet "recorded" my house and we were frantically trying to get a hold of someone to ensure that our trip would not be in vain. Well, Ben ended up escalating the situation to the Vice President, I believe, and we ended up having another agent stay to hand us the keys upon our arrival. If not for that phone call, we may well have wasted a trip up there. On a more personal note, Ben and I have known each other since 1998, and I am happy to say that he is a true friend. Thanks for your help!

    • Ben was an amazing real estate agent throughout my entire process, both buying my house and then selling it. Ben had amazing knowledge of the area and was very professional and also fun to travel around the city with looking for homes. Ben was extremely responsive to all of my needs and would help me out with whatever I needed at the drop of a hat. The sale of my house was very complicated and Ben was very knowledgable in every odd question I had and he stuck with me through some difficulties and went above and beyond, way above and beyond, to help me sell my house. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone looking to buy or sell a property!

      - Shawn B.
    • Ben let's the house sell itself. He wants to help you get into the place you want and not sell you on anything you may be unsure about. He also has the experience to spot any hidden or potential problems. He is friendly and we very much appreciated his help with buying our first home.

      - Eric A.
    • Ben is my go to guy on everything real estate. He is very professional, extremely knowledgable and also much fun! He is honest, quick to respond and very organized. We were looking for a home in CA, while living in New York. He helped us narrow our search and made the entire process completely seamless. Now, we are looking for a larger home and I would not work for anyone else. He responds quickly and gets answers for things I have not even thought to ask yet. He knows exactly what I'm looking for, even when I don't, and I trust him completely. I highly recommend Ben and feel lucky to have him looking out for us!

      - Mike C.
    • My husband and I decided to buy our first home. Since we were inexperienced and had no idea about the process, we decided to find someone who can help us, not only to buy a home, but to also inform us about the areas that we were looking at. Ben Greenway did this perfectly. Not only is Ben Greenway a great agent, he is patient, polite, funny, and most of all made the home buying process very smooth for us. We have been living at our house for over 4 years and couldn't be any happier. We love the house and the area.

    • I bought a home from him in Carlsbad he treated me as he would someone in his family. He was extremely helpful, patient and very organized when it came to the paperwork and of things. He always made me feel like I was his first priority.

      - Caroline G
    • Being a first time home buyer, I didn't quite know what I was getting myself into. Ben made it such an easy process and was always available to show homes. I told him what I wanted and in what area. Ben then advised me with his great market knowledge and real estate experience. I knew I made the right purchase with the confidence that he instilled. It was scary buying a home for the first time, but I feel that I could do it again with Ben at my side.

      - Zillow Reviewer
    • This guy wasn't even mad when I texted him at midnight. A house was listed that I absolutely had to jump on, so I hit him up. He was excited and he helped me get that exact house. He was very patient with me and even helped me out for 8 months to find the perfect home. Even now after I have been in my home for 4 months, he still calls to make sure everything is alright. Great personality and made sure I understood everything. When I got all my escrow paperwork I was slightly overwhelmed, but Ben was completely cool with meeting up somewhere to go thru it with me. Great experience and I have and will always refer people to Ben.

      - Mike F.
    • Ben was attentive and determined to meet some very high standards for my first home. I relied on Ben's knowledge to guide me through the short-sale process and he delivered expertly. Will I call on him again for my real estate needs? You betcha!

      - Chris W
    • Ben was recommended to me by a coworker after my previous agent just kept giving me reasons excuses and zero results . I called Ben one Thursday afternoon and that same weekend he had me viewing properties and working with his contacts to get my loan qualification.He is extremely dinamic, has a very knowledgeable team behind him that get things done and is available at all times.Our home purchase process was very extensive, at no point did he make me feel pressured or that any of my questions or requests were silly, he educated me and took me to see any home me and my wife wanted to see.We finally found the right home and his negotiations saved us at least an additional $10,000 I strongly recommend him, he knows, can and gets it done.

    • As an Active-Duty Navy first-time buyer, I had no idea where to start. I found Ben through an internet search. He was very honest and beneficial to me and my family every step of the way. Because I was looking for a home in San Diego and lived in Northern California, Ben set up a personalized searched that emailed me homes to look at on a regular basis. Once I transferred to USS Peleliu (LHA-5) at Navy Base San Diego, Ben showed me and my wife many, many homes. Once we found the new home we want to buy, which was in Temecula and not in San Diego, Ben helped us negotiate with the builder to pay all the closing fees and get many upgrades. Ben is honest, a family man and a loyal friend. I highly recommend that every Active-Duty service member, Veteran or outstanding American choose Ben as their Real Estate agent!
