Ben started his real estate career in 2008 as a residential leasing agent in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. Within 18 months he was promoted to the role of Property Manager and entrusted with the management of over 280 properties. After that agency was sold he moved on to work for a highly regarded, family run agency in Balmain. It was there he developed a taste for commercial property management, taking on a handful of commercial properties within his residential portfolio.
In 2012 Ben decided he needed a new challenge and that commercial property management was where to find it. Fortunately, he came across an opening within LJ Hooker Commercial Canberra and decided it was time to return to his roots. Ben grew up on a rural property near Cooma and spent his high-school years at Canberra Grammar, so it was an easy decision to make and he hasn’t looked back since.
Ben’s experience in residential real estate was invaluable for developing his skills in problem solving, conflict resolution and communication. Very much a people person, he strives to go above and beyond for his clients and is a firm believer that there is a solution to every problem, no matter how big or daunting it may seem at the time.
