Ben walked me through every step of the 203(k) buying process.

Couldn't have been a better experience. Very knowledgeable and went of his way to ensure that I had the information I needed to get through the chaos that is 203(k).

Honestly, there are too many benefits to working with Ben that I cannot list them all in a review.

Ben is persistent, driven, considerate and his follow up is amazing. With the assistance of Ben and all of the resources that come with his real estate agent guidance, we were able to sell a home and buy a home during a pandemic. Ben was always providing us the encouragement we needed to stay the course and provided us sound advice on good buying decisions. My wife Lindsay and I cannot thank Ben enough for his service and Ben has become more than an agent, he has become a friend. No better person to work with to find your next home or sell a tough home. Also no better person to take your call late at night with questions on a home the night before an answer is needed. Thanks again Ben and I cannot recommend him any higher. You will not be disappointed.

Luke and our journey began when we were attempting to find a rental property to vacate our current one.

We were renting in a high-rise downtown that had already seen multiple Covid-19 cases - just riding up and down the elevators brought on anxiety. This was not an optimal place for someone with Asthma. Now enters Luke, we started down the road of looking at rental after rental. For about 2 weeks, this was the new normal - look, attempt to lease, contract already in progress, move on. We were desperate to exit our current location and that brought on a new thought, "Why don't we attempt to purchase?". Luke threw on his realtor cap and we began the house hunting adventure. There were certain areas we were interested in and did I mention we were on a time constraint of 30 days (current rental was lease was ending in 30 days). For over 3 weeks we saw Luke on a day to day basis. The house search was just starting when we stumbled upon a gem. This being the first time buying a house, there was an exuberant amount to learn. Luke guided providing direction and advice around every corner of the journey. We closed on our house a day after my birthday. It was a proud moment we shared and credited Luke in helping us accomplish.

David is very knowledgeable and shares this knowledge to help any buyer make the best decision for their purchase.

I used David to advise, negotiate and purchase a 4 unit income property. I am continuing to use him as I search for additional income property.

We just purchased our first home with Ben’s help and it would not have been the same without him!

He is prompt, patient and knowledgeable. Worked with us for months to search the market and focus on our needs/wants. Several times he advised us to walk away for reasons we would have completely missed. When we found the right property he negotiated an incredible deal and guided us through every step of the process. Ben is a true professional who realizes that happy clients are repeat clients. Remember Ben, his phone is Always On!

Ben was available anytime, any day to answer our calls.

I have been fortunate enough to have done multiple real estate transactions and Ben as my realtor has always eased my concerns with his honest opinions on the property, and even some of the remodeling.

He seems to work 24/7 because no matter how late at night or early in the morning, he is right there to take your call and ready to bring his A game. I would recommend Ben Coughnour on any real estate deals you you need to make.

Seth M

Ben is a close friend as well as my realtor and he was a pleasure to work with for the purchase of my first home.

We saw about 10 homes together, officially made an offer on one, and the seller came back the next day and accepted it. We closed very quickly (<30 days) thanks to Ben's initiative, timeliness, and responsiveness. Ben is honest and candid, which was much appreciated during the search and can be difficult to find in this day and age. I would highly recommend Ben and I am fully confident in his abilities and expertise as a realtor.

He did an excellent job of presenting our house to buyers via social media. The photos of the home were professional. I highly recommend him if you are selling a home.

Ben was instrumental in buying my very first home and all of the fun adventures that comes with.

He's a savvy negotiator, timely to appointments and messages, and no nonsense. I send everyone I know that's buying or selling a house his way.

Ben was the most helpful, thorough, punctual, patient agents I have ever had down to the closest estimated dollar in closing costs.

We've worked with David through the purchase of first home, then 3 years later in the sale of that home and purchase of our new home.

David has proven himself to be dependable, knowledgeable, and a strong partner to have in your corner who knows the ins-and-outs of the the industry.

We would highly recommend David and will calling him first when the time comes to move again.
