  • Benny listed and sold my home

      Buying/selling a home is a huge deal. It takes a special kind of person to care enough, to take the time to do whatever it takes to ensure their customer's delight! There is absolutely no one we would trust to do business with but Benny Charles. He exhibits the best professionalism and kindness. He has a mastery for the current market and is honest in providing the most accurate information and what's necessary to sell or purchase a home. He spent countless hours researching comps, lining up interior decorators for staging and hiring the best photographer/video tech - all at his own expense of course. There's no 9-5 with Benny. He's always available. We've known Benny for nine years now, done several transactions with him, and consider him and his family a part of ours. He's truly the best realtor!

        I highly recommend using Benny as your realtor. Not only did he sell our home for asking price, but he also helped us buy our dream home. Benny’s Professionalism, knowledge and honesty made our selling and buying a very quick transition Thank you Benny!

      • Benny listed and sold my home

          Benny is outstanding! He is knowledgeable, very experienced, and most importantly he will sell your house. He has a team of professionals who will give great advice and help on staging the home as well as what may need repairing to get the best offer. His photographer did an amazing job representing our home’s best features. Benny’s relaxed, courteous and friendly demeanor instilled confidence in us and assured us that he was the best agent among others that we interviewed. He enabled us to sell our home very shortly after listing in an area that is considered to be a slow market. We highly, highly recommend Benny Charles

        • Benny listed and sold my home

            WOW!!!! Benny was honest to the core! He told me the honest truth even if it wasn't the news I wanted to hear. He was by far the most professional and passionate realtor we have ever met. He absolutely loves his job and it shows. We interviewed other agents before Benny and they all said the same old stuff. Then we interviewed Benny and he was head and shoulders above them all. He knew/knows the market better than all the other agents. We were suppose to interview two more after him but after talking with Benny we quickly called the other agents and told them not to come over. Benny guaranteed us the home would sell within 16 days and it sold in 4 after his mega open house. Benny is a true realtor and now my agent for life

          • Benny listed and sold my home

              I met Benny when I was interviewing 4 other agents (many listed here on Zillow) when I was selling my high end home. When other agents learned I was interviewing multiple agents, they all increased the sales price. Of course, that sounded wonderful as I was eager to sell and get top dollar. Benny's selling price was approximately 300k less than others. Benny had explained that he knew the market well and also brought videos of competition in the area. I was impressed! Benny also said he would NOT accept my listing at the other agents' prices because he would be setting me up to fail. Benny encouraged me to list with another agent. He also explained that once the price dropped with the other agent that I could end my contract and hire him! At that time, I decided to use another agent with hopes of getting a higher asking price. Unfortunately after only a few weeks, my listing agent recommended I lower the price 300k! I called Benny and he sold my home in 14 days. Benny was truthful and honest even when it wasn't what I wanted to hear. I highly recommend Benny to sell any home.

                Buying a house is hard... You are moving your whole life and when selling another house you are looking for someone to trust that will handle one of the largest assets you'll ever have. Benny Charles was the person we thought knew us the best and was able to help us navigate this time with expertise, calm, responsiveness getting us exactly what we wanted. He was able to get us the price for the house we were selling and the price for the new house we wanted. I can't recommend him enough. If you are looking to sell or buy use Benny at C to Sea Realty!

              • Benny listed and sold my home

                  Benny is responsive and always available. He helped us sell our former home and find our happy new home. His expertise and experience in every angle of the real estate business helped us close quickly on both transactions. He is a top notch agent.

                • Benny listed and sold my home

                    Benny went above and beyond for us when we sold our home a few months ago and bought a new home. He gave us such great advice for us to prepare for our open house we sold it that first weekend! We love our new home and Benny negotiated a great purchase price that we could not resist! Don’t plan on moving again, but if so would not use anyone other than Benny

                  • Benny listed and sold my home

                      We met Benny through mutual friends not even looking for a realtor at the time. When the time came that we were thinking of selling our home and buying a new one we thought we'd give Benny a call to pick his brain. He is very professional and prompt, he came right over to assess our property and give us some numbers to crunch and comparables, the usual. What really made us feel at ease with Benny was his gentle yet go getter attitude. We were really gearing toward selling and buying with in a short time, which isn't that common and we ended up closing both sales with in 24 hours of each other. It was smooth and very little stress and we can't thank Benny enough for all his help

                    • Benny listed and sold my home

                        Great person and agent. Worked hard to help us find our home. He was ready to take us to see houses, even if it was last minute. Helped us get connected with a lender who was trustworthy.
