If you're not working with Ben then you are not witnessing the best possible home buying experience one can have. Ben was not only our fearless diligent agent but, through the process, became a trusted friend and a loyal guide. As we know, home buying is a stressful process, but Ben was a great partner! He was always available anytime we needed him. He connected us to all the relevant parties needed to get the process in order. He always made us feel like we were his only client with the amount of attention and professionalism he brought. He even helped us though some massive indecisiveness we experienced along the way by keeping us on track and reminding us of what we had stated our priorities were from the beginning! He kept us grounded which could be a difficult task to do with so many variables that go into this process. He did a great job speaking candidly and providing his feedback, with the utmost respect. I never had to follow up with Ben, he constantly kept us updated along the way, informed us of what to expect at each phase and led us through it smoothly. As a first time homebuyer, that was comforting to experience. My wife and I have now found our realtor for life with Ben and couldn't be happier with that decision! We felt like a team with him!

My wife and I could not be more pleased with our experience with Ben as our Agent. As a first-time buyer, we had so many questions about the process, the timing, responsibilities, cost, zones, etc. Ben addressed all of our concerns, with detailed and informed answers. Due to our inability to set firm schedules to visit properties, Ben was very flexible and where needed engaged his business partner to assist in showing us properties. When we found the property that we both agreed on, we wanted to ensure that it would qualify for traditional financing (as this was our preferred financing method). Ben did everything to ensure that the property would qualify before we submitted an offer, and after the offer was submitted to counter-offer to close, Ben was on top of things. We never felt like Ben was too busy for us, and always found answers. Actually at one point I asked my wife, “do you think Ben has time for any of his other clients?” as we were talking, emailing, etc. Being a first-time buyer is stressful and Ben made the process so smooth…. we could not be more pleased. He was extremely pro-active, as an example, in the middle of closing my wife and I had a trip to Hawaii to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We considered cancelling our trip because it was at such a critical time, but knowing that our transaction was in Ben's capable hands we went and were so happy we did so, as Ben had everything under control. Ben is very organized and proactive. Ben is an excellent negotiator and because of his attention to detail, we were able to increase the value of our purchase far more than we expected. Ben acted as the liaison with our Bankers, Escrow Company, and the Management Company. Ben ensured that we did not fall behind on our due dates, and prompted us if we needed to follow-up with any of the key deliverables, in a professional manner. Areas for improvement, none! When we have to buy our next property Ben will be the person that we go to. Zip has a real asset in Ben, and we were so lucky to have him help us navigate this tremendous investment! Thanks Ben!

Ben Samimi helped to sell my old home very smoothly and I recently moved into my new home a week ago. Although there are still lots of boxes needed to be unpacked and things needed to be organized, I have to say that again Ben had helped me throughout the purchasing process of the new home, which made me feel at ease. He is a very thorough and detailed person. He stayed on top of everything and kept everyone including sales office, escrow and lender posted of the progress. Even when thing was delayed beyond his control, Ben would communicate to everyone and reach out to others to resolve the issue. He went “Above and Beyond” with his service. Ben is the best realtor I ever have! If you are looking to buy a home or sell your home, contact Ben and you will be very pleased with his service.

During the time as a seller of my home, Ben Samimi has been more than helpful, professional, and thorough with his work as a realtor. Within 3 weeks my home was sold with ease and comfort knowing that I was in good hands with Ben. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone looking for a realtor who is knowledgable and trustworthy in the real estate business. I thank Ben for the job well done!

We are very pleased to hire Ben as our leasing agent. The role of the leasing agent is to advertise and show our property to prospective tenants and to perform a background check.We have to say Ben is amazing! He is always on time and very patient and professional. He puts a lot of effort into advertising our property on many websites. The description of the property is very accurate.He is always available to us by phone or email at any time when we have any questions or concerns. He worked so hard to ensure we have wonderful tenants. He made the rental process very straightforward. He took time and effort to go over every item of the lease with us and tenant. He is a diligent,knowledgeable and honest person.We would highly recommend Ben to anyone who wants to lease or sell their property. Thank you Ben!

Ben was very helpful in getting our unit ready for sale. He is a diligent salesperson, holding an open house at our unit almost every week until we received a firm offer. Since we live in Hawaii, most of the transactions were long distance but Ben continuously communicated with us on what was going on in a timely manner, set us up with docu-sign, and got us a wonderful escrow company to work with.. We are very appreciative that he went "beyond the call" to help us sell our house!

Ben really did an amazing job with my partner and me. Since we both share A type personalities Ben was able to work well with calming both of us down at the most stress fall times in the home buying processes and kept us up to date with every detail that was going on in the process. Ben was able to meet all our needs where previous agents weren't. Ben proved to us that he was knowledgeable of the area where we were purchasing and was able to locate a home for us that met both of our expectations. We really appreciate that Ben would always make time for us and promptly answered any question we had. The best part is that he stayed in constant contact with us even replying to emails right away that were sent either really early in the morning or late at night, which showed us we were always is priority. With out Ben we would not have been able to find a home in this market within 2 months of us first looking. We would definitely keep Ben as a realtor and would recommend him to anyone who is searching for a home. You can never go wrong with choosing Ben.

My family was very fortunate to have met Ben even before hiring him as our agent. We were neighbors and even before we were contemplating on selling our home, you can tell Ben was honest, friendly, caring, and overall a great family man. It was a no brainer to hire Ben as our agent when the time came to sell our house. I have very high standards when hiring someone to provide a service. I didn't hire Ben just cause he was our neighbor, but i hired him because he carried himself with honesty and integrity. In the business of real estate, those two characteristics are the most important elements, cause everything else will follow to finalize your transaction. From the beginning, he told me clearly how much I was going to make on selling my home and never pressured me to make decisions. He was prompt with every question I threw at him, available 24-7, always on time, made sure the buyers and escrow were moving along with the docs, and even went above and beyond his duties by helping us clean our home and helping us locate a rental. This guy is the real deal, he is driven to get results and keeps his promises. Would I hire him again to sell or buy another home, in a heart beat.

Ben is the most responsive, pro-active, thorough agent I have worked with. He was patient and available to show us whatever property we were interested in. We had been looking off and on for 18 months and he was always willing. We made offers on two other properties that went through many negotiations before finally being successful with the third property. He came up with suggestions for properties that fit our requirements. There was never a moment that I did not know where we stood in the offer and closing process. He answered all my questions and searched out the answers if he didn't have them. He provided a summary of the steps in the closing process and the dates by which we needed to complete them. He arranged for the home inspection and we found the inspector he chose to be thorough and knowledgeable. Everything was smooth due to Ben's diligence and we closed 5 days earlier than the original plan. Whether selling or buying, I would recommend Ben without reservation.

Ben was there every step of the way when we purchased our home....we had many questions being a first time buyer as a couple, and he was very informative and guided us all the way. Very honest and real, and always was there for us when we needed him. We recommend him for everyone who needs a perfect place to live.

Ben is a professional realtor. We just came to him for renting a property and ended up by buying a property! He got the best deal in a short period of the time (almost one month) for us. He knows the market very well. His negotiation tricks are fantastic. He has also a friendly and respectful personality. I highly recommend him to work with.

"We met Ben Samimi when we requested to see a house that his office represented. As you may know, there's no shortage of Realtors wanting to represent you as you buy or sell real estate. We chose Ben for his earnest personality and his consistent willingness to perform his job to his best ability. Since then, we have successfully sold two homes and bought a new home (in 3+ months!) with his guidance and expertise. We have referred Ben without hesitation with very positive outcomes. In the future, we would most certainly work with Ben in all real estate dealings." - Bill & Wendy Kimura

As a first-time seller, there was so much I didn't know about how to navigate a successful sale. Mr. Samimi's professionalism and knowledge of the industry was indispensable to me as we approached each decision that was required along the way. His personal investment in addressing my concerns and protecting my interests assured me that I had indeed chosen the right agent to represent me. In fact, his inter-personal skills were instrumental in expertly guiding both parties through the process to everyone's satisfaction. I have the highest respect for Ben, both personally and professionally. He went the extra mile for me - I'm sure he'll go the extra mile for you. He has my utmost confidence and my highest recommendation." - Robin Ferguson

I have been on the "hunt," so to speak, for a new residence. Ben has taken me out to see multiple properties. He's been the consummate professional and ever so patient. I'm probably the pickiest person around, yet he doesn't pressure me into buying. He's young yet wise and mature beyond his years. He's confident and knows his business quite well. Go with a WINNER.

When I decided that it was time to purchase my first property, I knew I needed a real estate agent that would have my back, and be very responsible and knowledgable. I can say, without any hesitation, that Ben has met and exceeded all of my expectations. As I soon realized in this market, properties are going fast, and Ben was on the ball. He would immediately call me when he saw a newly listed property matched what I was looking for. Additionally, he was always available at an instant. I have contacted him sometimes in the very early morning, up to the midnight hour, and I always get him on the phone. When I did get an offer accepted on a property, Ben covered me on all bases. Buying a house, especially for a first time home buyer, is a very serious event in a persons life, and I can honestly say that working with Ben, I was always has a calm and stress-free demeanor because I knew by working with him that he knows what he is doing. Now as I sit here in my new house, writing this review, I want whoever is reading this to know that if you go with Ben Samimi, you too will share my experience, which is going through the huge process of purchasing a home, but it will be done in a way that you always feel comfortable and secure, and when Ben hands you your new keys after the close of escrow, as he did to me last week, you will realize you made the right decision going with Ben Samimi as your real estate agent.

I really loved working with Ben. I would recommend him without hesitation. As a first-time buyer, I was worried about all of the steps that go into such a major decision. Ben was very patient, encouraging and supportive thru the entire process. So much, that it turned out to be a fun experience, rather than a stressful one. We looked at a lot of properties until finding the right one, but there was never any pressure from Ben to go with something we had already seen. He wanted me to be truly happy with the decision I made. And I am :) Ben also has very good people that he works with, for financing, insurance, and the home inspection. I would recommend using those guys too! The only bad thing about the actual purchase of my house is that I don't get to see or talk to Ben as much, but I know we will stay in touch.
