Highly likely to recommend | 5.0 Report a problem 10/15/2016 - seattlepalmer Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Los Angeles, CA. Local knowledge Process expertise Responsiveness Negotiation skills Ben's business skills are superb, but his patience and kindness, while guiding me through the sale of our family home since 1945's post-WW2 trauma in rebuilding our lives, after the death of my mother and only sibling, were unexpected. "How's my marketing?" he joked, when the Monday after he listed the property the prior Friday, yielded five offers all above the listed price and a sale that same week. All of this Ben did in California, while I remained two states away. He has my highest recommendation in every category. I had and have absolute confidence in his judgment, advice and ability to do the best for even a small value property like mine.

Seller, Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Los Angeles, CA
We needed to sell an apartment building from afar and we were clueless, we needed a dependable realtor, we received Bens contact information from a source we could trust, we called, setup the sale, sold for a very viable price. Bens group waded through unscrupulous individuals handled problems in our way and other tasks that would have been impossible from long distance. Ben and staff took care of business and closed on the deal. Pleased as can be!!! Highly recommend Ben Salem!

Seller, Property managed a Multi Family home in Whittier, CA.
Ben is one in a million! When preparing to sell my condo in Brentwood, I interviewed numerous realtors. It was clear after speaking with Ben that he had a superior grasp of all the different factors affecting the Los Angeles real estate market and even the sublties between the various neighborhoods therein. He helped me weigh those factors to get the highest price for my condo. He and his team went above and beyond helping me get the space ready by painting and staging the unit (he even arranged for movers and furniture), which secured a higher sale price than I expected. He conducted numerous open houses which resulted offers pouring in and was a zealous negotiator throughout the entire process. Even though my condo was likely a small sale for him, Ben gave me 100% of his time and effort. I highly recommend Ben to anyone looking to sell their home.
