Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Woodlawn neighborhood, Portland, OR.
I would absolutely recommend Ben to anyone I know. We had an unusual situation, and no idea what we were doing, but Ben was immediately responsive and incredibly supportive. He wants you to get what you want, and was good at asking the right questions to figure out exactly what you want. He worked well with our seller, negotiated fairly, and still got us a great deal in a house that we love. We were very pleased with the experience.
