It is with complete enthusiasm that my wife and I recommend Benjamin Clark and Homebuyer Representation, Inc. for anyone's home buying effort!
With an impending retirement from the US Air Force, but not before one final deployment, Ellen and I had a small window of opportunity to buy a home in Salt Lake. Currently residing in Ohio, we knew the search would be complicated by our distance, and the limited amount of time available "on the ground" to look at all reasonable properties and ultimately close. We needed an ally.
Scouring the internet, I learned about "Exclusive Buyer's Agents" and read multiple recommendations for Benjamin Clark. After a deliberate two-way interview (he wanted to know as much of me as I did of him), we felt comfortable that Ben could deliver both what we wanted and what we needed. Our situation was not simple: we had approximately one week in Utah to see 50-60 reasonable properties, decide, and hopefully have an offer accepted. Once convinced that we had the resolve to successfully complete such and ambitious plan, Ben devoted his full expertise.
Via text, internet, and phone, Ben guided us long distance through our housing criteria and updated us daily on housing matches in our preferred areas. As the in-place week approached, Ben locked down our "top 54" and arranged a beautifully orchestrated travel route to hit approximately 25 houses on each of the first two days. With each stop, he expertly pointed out pros and cons regarding the house, lot, and area. We never felt rushed and always felt like we were his only clients. While out on showings, he was quick to point out For Sale By Owner and other seemingly applicable houses that had not shown up on the MLS. Ben was unfazed by our endless requests and frequent add-ons. After nearly 60 showings in 2 days, we spent days 3 and 4 revisiting our top contenders and completing last minute add-ons. Ellen and I made our decision and Ben immediately set out discovering comp sales to guide our offer. I was floored with his initial recommended offering -- way too low! In my incredulousness, and with full confidence, I let him know what I was willing to pay. He stood his researched ground, even though it would lessen his commission. When the sellers countered, it was right at my "preferred price". Had I of been with any other agent, the deal would have closed ... and I would have left $25,000.00 on the table! But Ben, now concentrating on the seller's agent and utilizing his impressive ninja negotiation skills, recommended a minimal offer increase, still far below their counter. I was nervous. Ben was calm. And Ben was right!
Our week in Utah over, Ben arranged for all follow up on inspections and activities and kept us up to date every step of the way. He shopped mortgage lenders for the lowest rate and fees and he found yet additional savings. His dedication to service and attention to detail is best described as if he's buying his own home!
I'm not sure if anyone truly enjoys the house buying experience. But I do know Ben will make the entire process as smooth, controlled, and anxiety-free as possible. He is trustworthy, patient, and knowledgeable. His energy is boundless while his focus is locked onto your needs. He won't rush you, and he won't waste your time. He's ready with guidance and advice but is acutely tuned to your needs and desires.
Ben is the guy you want on your side when looking for a home!
