Faber Real Estate Team

    • When buying or selling a property, I use Ben Faber and the Faber Team as I consistently receive the best reliability and prompt responsiveness to simple and complicated transaction details. Every property is different and provides for all involved to step up - or not. Ben ALWAYS steps up and brings his best energy and knowledge of every RE transaction.

    • Very professional and helpful. Know how to make a deal and negotiate. On-time. Always follow up on an issue. Secure and close a deal better than expected. He helps me to closed many deals in the past. I am continuing to work with him to buy more properties

      - Seller in Marin County
    • Ben Faber Did excellent work, he is very knowledgeable and professional. He kept me well informed of serious buyers and the number of those that viewed the property. He provided me with constantly updated with the concierge and the remodeling work. He has good negotiating skills and got me the sale price that I was happy with. He helped facilitate the loan for the remodeling work and walked me through the loan process and secure the funding.

      - Xavier P., Seller in Marin County
    • The best team sold my house in days amazing and very helpful... I do recommend them he and his team go out of their way to make things simple and fast the best person I've used

      - Christian Gudino, Seller in Marin County
    • Ben is a true professional. He is knowledgeable, prompt, savvy, and engaging. My family was able to successfully lease an apartment quickly for a fair rate through Ben and are very happy with his services.

      - George Haris, Buyer in Marin County
    • We moved to Oakland in January of 2020 from Minnesota, planning to live in an apartment for a year, and then find a home in the east bay within 15 minutes of Central Oakland. But to our dismay and disappointment, there was nothing I would remotely consider appropriate for my wife that did not entail a couple of years of headaches and a lot of remodeling. I contacted Ben to help us find something we could live in and live with. He did a great job helping us clarify what we were actually looking for and got us into this great place in Point Richmond--an absolute hidden gem with a great view of San Francisco bay. It is hard to express in words how much we love this place. He got us this home well below our max budget and we closed within a short time with no hiccups. Again thanks to Ben, Linda, and Angela for making this happen.

      - danpaul222, Buyer in San Francisco bay
    • Ben Faber is highly recommended! Excellent results, wonderful patience, clear communication, and the right approach to sales. I worked with Ben twice and would love to do so again.

      - Stanislav Shalunov, Seller in Marin County
    • Ben was a pleasure to work with. He was patient, provided expertise ~ definitely hope to work with him again for subsequent rental needs. A large Thank you to him, and the team!

      - dawn brandenburg, Buyer in Marin County
    • We love Ben - patient, super responsive, and really a great partner to us from start to finish of a very long (3-month search)! He has super-local knowledge of the bay area and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home.

      - lesley016, Buyer in Bay Area
    • Ben is a one-of-a-kind agent. He is great at laying the options on the table and looking at them subjectively to make sure the purchase and investment are sound and advantageous. He has worked with my partner and me tirelessly to secure investment properties that make sense and not just try to push us into a sale. I really have enjoyed his full-service, honest, upfront style. He has also jumped on some very short timelines and had his associates meet me at the showings when he was unavailable so that we could stay in front of the competition. All around A+ service and I couldn't recommend Ben and his team enough!

      - jonmfgrabham, Seller in Marin County
    • Ben was recommended to us by a family friend and he immediately got in touch to find properties off the marketplace that matched our needs. After visiting the home that was the best match, Ben worked quickly with us and the seller to negotiate a fair price. Ben also coordinated the communication between our mortgage broker and also found us a home insurance broker. The process was streamlined and made it easy for first-time home buyers like us. I would recommend Ben to anyone looking to purchase in Marin.

      - Anh Diep, Buyer in Marin County
    • I highly recommend Ben and the Faber Team!!!!As a first-time homebuyer, there was a lot I didnt know about the process. Ben took the time to explain everything, layout all the options, and provide clear rationale and advice on how to proceed. He is incredibly responsive to emails (seemingly always available to shoot me back a quick response) and provided guidance on what where we could negotiate. And they are just wonderful people to interact withfriendly and good-humored. Im grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Ben and will definitely work with him and his team again in the future.

      - Johanna Abend, Buyer in Marin County
    • First of all, Ben and his team are an absolute pleasure to work with!Ben, Angela, and Linda are knowledgeable, honest, hardworking, and dedicated to providing the best service. I especially like the fact that they have a genuine, informative, and calm approach while being unbelievably responsive and supportive.Ben and his team helped me find an investment property. Their extensive knowledge of the area helped me identify a great property very quickly, and their relationships with local professionals made a quick escrow possible.I am grateful to have found them and plan to continue to work with them for many years to come. I am sure they will be a wonderful resource to those looking to buy a house for the first time, looking to upgrade or downsize their existing home, as well as for those looking for a good investment property or need an agent to help them get top dollars for their property.Highly recommend them!

      - gachego, Seller in Marin County
    • Ben took over my condo listing and immediately proved himself to be head and shoulders above other realtors I have worked with. From his fab teammate Angela improving our staging to Ben's clearly justified pricing guidance and negotiation recommendations through the selling and closing process, I felt I had a real partner and champion on my side. Ben and Angela spent more time helping us through our first sale than I ever could have imagined, and were incredibly responsive to our requests and needs. I would highly recommend team Faber and look forward to engaging with them for our next transaction.

      - Jesse Gundersheim, Seller in Marin County
    • Ben's team is great, They Helped me get home and they were very knowledgeable, I'm very please with him and his Team.We found the right home and great location, near the school and a nice neighborhood.

      - smlandscapellc, Buyer in Marin County
    • Ben knows the Marin area as well as any agent (he grew up here!). We had a difficult set of criteria in what we needed in a house as well as a limited budget. The process took a while, but Ben was steady and patient throughout it all. For all of our offers (we put in 5 and got a house on the 5th!), Ben guided and positioned us well so that we were comfortable with what we committed to while also giving us a chance in the market. It is an incredibly tough market and having Ben help us through it, we have happily settled in a great house for us!And, the best part, it's not just Ben. His whole team is fantastic. They provided great support so that we could get up to see places when we needed to. After we purchased, they have been incredibly helpful in getting us set up with assistance in upgrades to the home and general maintenance work so we are not left out without any ideas for help. I highly recommend working with Ben. It's not just a relationship for buying a house, but they truly help you get and maintain a home.

      - ryan w cobb, Buyer in Marin County
    • Ben and his team were extremely professional and helpful. I had very sensitive reasons for selling my property and they were empathetic and yet helped keep me on task. It was the best experience I can imagine and they assisted me every step of the way.I would emphatically refer them to anyone that wants to buy or sell a property or get very solid advice about how to go about it. It took me a while to get it in process, they were patient and thoughtful and were always available at any time to address my needs and concerns.#1 choice without a doubt.

      - Kim Florez, Seller in Marin County
    • Ben, spent the time that was required to help me find and secure my first home. He was always available when I had a question. He helped answer questions I had about buying a home. He was very timely and professional when it came to his service. I highly recommend Ben and his team.

      - david18686, Buyer in Marin County
    • Could not have chosen a better agent to work with. Great knowledge of the local market, always available by phone, and great guidance on offer strategy. Thanks, Ben!

      - jakeaco, Seller/Buyer in Marin County
    • Ben and the Faber team worked tirelessly to meet our needs (even as those needs changed). We walked through a number of homes within and outside of our budget so Ben could best understand and guide our desires. Would certainly recommend his services to friends.

      - mgdort, Buyer in Marin County
    • Very responsive and helpful in guiding us through the process of purchasing a home prior to selling our existing home. He did such a good job that we decided to have him represent us in selling our existing home which is currently on the market.

      - jbbushman, Buyer in Marin County
    • Ben helped us look for a house in a tough, competitive market. We went from looking to close in a matter of one months time. Ben gave us a great analysis of homes we considered purchasing. He maximized our time out there by setting up as many showings as possible for the time we had available. Coming into Marin from Palo Alto, meant a lot to us. Linda, his mother, also showed us houses and she is a gem. She carefully asked questions and offered input.

      - Nicola Rueckheim, Buyer in Marin County
    • Ben contributed time and energy to our search for a new home. His availability and communication were key to finding the right spot. You can expect to receive several new properties to review each week, walk-throughs whenever needed, and an effort to hone in on what features are most important. In some ways, he is like an optometrist asking Do you prefer this one or this one? until he knows precisely what you are hoping for. He showed knowledge and helpfulness throughout the home-buying process.

      - BERLEMAN, Buyer in Marin County
    • Super intelligent, extremely knowledgeable, fully committed, tirelessly hard-working. The other members of his real estate team are also the greatest. No wonder he is a top producer!

      - toomuchlevy, Seller/Buyer in Marin County

I'm a client who expects a very high level of service and Ben has always delivered.

    • We've been working with Ben and his team for the past five years. He's helped us both buy and sell a home. We've recommended him to friends and can recommend him to you too.Beyond being highly competent professionals, Ben and his team are just really nice people.Ben has always had the basics down pat: he's punctual & always available. Beyond this Ben has excelled in helping us through two negotiations and arrival at outcomes we were very pleased with. While we were searching for a home he kept us apprised of pre-market homes that might be a good fit for us as he developed a keen understanding of our unique tastes and priorities.During the sale of our home, Ben's team was stupendous in advising what changes to make and on the overall preparation of the property. This contribution upped the final sale price significantly in our view.Over the years we've used many contractors recommended by Ben & team -- all of them were excellent and we'd work with any of them again in the future. Ben has a very high standard of service for his own team and only recommends contractors who he feels can also live up to his high standards.We're looking forward to working with Ben on our next home sale/purchase...

After sharing our updated criteria for our first home and the news that we were expecting a baby, Ben brought us the absolute perfect off-market opportunity for our growing family.As a lifelong resident of Marin, Ben has a deep understanding of the California housing market and its ins and outs. Ben was very accommodating of our busy schedules and always responsive to our questions. He has assembled a top-notch team (Angela, Linda, and Emily) to help buyers and sellers at any stage navigate the process. We are incredibly grateful for the recommendations his team made within their vendor network to help us make some high-end ROI updates to our new home BEFORE moving day!A new home purchase is one of the most important investments.
