Ben Olsen's Reviews & Ratings

  • Ben listed and sold my home

      Best realtor in town. Experienced in high and low markets. Knowledge in our local area gives buyers and sellers the upper advantage. Highly recommended.

    • As I sit here writing this, my nine year old son is riding his bike around the neighborhood, visiting friends, and my seven year old is bouncing happily on the trampoline out back. I smile to myself as I reminisce on how far we've come from our two bedroom/one bath apartment in Brooklyn. Settling down in the neighborhood and house that we love brings us so much joy and Ben Olsen was integral to getting us here. Ben understood our family's needs from the very first time we spoke over the phone while still in New York City. He assisted with our initial move into a rental home, making the process seamless. His staff provided gracious welcome packages as we arrived into both homes. Ben generously shared his contacts with us and all of his recommendations, down to my sons' pediatrician, were excellent. I can't speak enough to the professionalism and expertise of Ben and his staff. Luckily, we had time on our side and our flexibility served us well. We bought in the winter and Ben was able to broker an off market deal for us - which in hindsight turned out to be of great value. Ben is attuned to the emotional aspect of home buying and was able to guide us through the ups and downs with integrity. We highly recommend his services for home buying and selling and will definitely use him for any of our future needs.
