A lifelong Chicagoland native, Benji grew up on the southwest side and now calls Albany Park home. Benji loves living in the city and believes there is truly something for everyone here, and he enjoys being a part of his clients' search for their dream home. Always fueled by his entrepreneurial spirit, Benji owned several small businesses throughout the city, ranging from a thriving video and collectible shop to restaurants and bars. His career in real estate started quite young—as a child, he helped his father, a popular real estate broker, enter listings and hand out flyers, later parlaying this into a booming career in real estate photography for his family's company. Real estate is in his DNA, and he credits his father's support of his passion for real estate for helping him grow in the industry.
Working behind the scenes helped Benji hone his real estate expertise, affording his clients' unique insight and understanding into the buying and selling process. Having worked in the service industry in some way since he was a teenager, Benji understands the importance of superior service. He strives to provide his clients with the highest standard of customer service. He understands that buying or selling a home can be an emotional time in his clients' lives, and he works tirelessly to provide a stress-free process from start to finish. Benji believes that open communication is the key to a successful transaction; his clients routinely applaud his no-nonsense approach, ensuring his clients' goals are always met.
Benji is known as the pinball king, and spends his free time trying to top his high score. He has a deep-rooted love of education and growth and is currently learning American Sign Language (ASL) to better serve his community. Having traveled the world, Benji knows that Chicago has it all—except mountains, unfortunately—and enjoys going on the hunt for the next great food adventure or cool new experience. He's incredibly proud of what he's achieved during his life but credits his marriage as being his greatest accomplishment.
