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.
Great advisor, good communications and understanding the needs of our family
My experience with Benji was fantastic. I was very worried about selling my property while living in another state. He went above and beyond. He not only helped get my place looking good after my tenants moved, but helped chase down paperwork and signatures from a very challenging condo association and title company. My wife and I were so grateful for his efforts.
The team of Glen and Benji was excellent to work with. They helped us refine our search and were patient and insightful as we looked at properties until finding the right one for us. They accommodated on short notice our availability and schedules, and were competent negotiators. Their communication was always prompt and professional. We were very pleased with everything regarding their team and this real estate transaction process.
