“We got introduced to Ben Lee through a colleague of my husband’s, who I think his wording was ‘You have to work with Ben, he is the only person you can work with in LA.’... then we emailed and met him and clicked immediately. It’s really nice to work with someone that you trust because that’s something you really need when you are looking for a home, especially if you are a first time homebuyer! The Ben Lee Team has been really informative, really responsive and direct.
It is kind of nice when you are working with someone who is a part of the community that you are going to be a part of, it makes you feel like he really knows what he is talking about.
Working with the Ben Lee team has exceeded our expectations, mainly in the kindness and care that we have received and just the positivity. We expected to be really stressed out and just worried the whole time. However, it has been a really seamless and stress-free process.
Working with Ben he is really sweet and kind but he can be aggressive when he needs to be, which is something that you need when you are working with a real estate agent.We have full confidence in that if there is a moment that if we need someone to really stand up for us in terms of working with a seller, we know that we’ve found someone that can do that in the most respectful way possible.”
- Elizabeth B., Buyer in Cheviot Hills
"We seem to be outgrowing the size of our own home, so we were looking at opportunities to expand our home, whether that be that we move or stay here and rebuild. Ben is one of the most kindest and honest people we know in the real estate industry. So we knew from the very beginning we would always use Ben. My husband and I were thinking about whether we would remodel because this house has become a little bit small for us. As we were talking about remodelling, we spoke with Ben about whether there would be any other opportunities in our price range to be able to stay in the neighborhood and upgrade our house. Sure enough, Ben showed us a fabulous opportunity in a house that's not too far from us and it caused us to really rethink going through the whole process of rebuilding. We quickly jumped on the opportunity that Ben showed us, which then allwoed us to sell the current house that we live in as well through Ben.
So Ben really helped us to think through what we could afford and where we had opportunity to stretch and where we could add value to buy a home that we wanted. We have actually found our dream home because of Ben and it is not something we ever thought we could have done in our wildest dreams. It was Ben and the team that really helped us to figure out that we could get this home and anticipate to live there for the rest of our lives. We found Ben and his team to be gracious, generous, kind and accomodating for our very busy schedules. They are smart and savvy in the work that they do.
Also Ben and his team priced our house in a way that allowed us to have multiple all cash offers, which in this market where homes fall in and out of escrow all the time, allowed us to go through the process very quickly and easily. They have been a true pleasure to work with."
- Deidre, Buyer & Seller in Beverlywood
“Ben and his team are consummate professionals that will find you that needle in the haystack, perfect home. Buying my home was with Ben was such a great experience that I also asked Ben to sell my condo. He made it so easy; we had multiple offers and were in escrow after only 2 days. I’m a commercial real estate lawyer, but I found Ben’s experience as a real estate lawyer so valuable, it’s amazing to have someone on your side with that knowledge. It was also great working with Ben’s team. Kelly and Elizabeth are amazing, they’re so responsive and always available, and Lilli does a great job setting the marketing agenda for the property. When buying or selling real estate, you cannot do better than to go with Ben Lee Properties.”
- Seth W, Buyer in Cheviot Hills and Seller in Century City
“Ben's the whole package- he's super smart, he knows the market inside and out, and he's a heck of a negotiator. Let me put it this way: ‘lock him up so he's on your side.....not theirs!’"
- R. Feifer, Buyer and Seller in Cheviot Hills
“We had Ben over and struck up a friendship immediately. He’s so professional, friendly, and knowledgeable, plus Elizabeth and Kelly were so helpful-- we knew we had the best team to help us sell our house. This was the best experience we’ve had with any professional service. I would recommend Ben to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Ben and his team are amazing and we owe everything to you guys.”
- Jack and Kathy B., Sellers in Beverlywood
“Our experience working with Ben was nothing but positive. As first-time homebuyers, we had a lot to learn. Ben listened closely to our criteria and consistently adapted his search based on our feedback. He was proactive yet patient, aggressive yet easy-going. And he knew the marketplace inside and out. As a result, Ben found us the perfect condo in Santa Monica. Ben is a great realtor, but he's also a great guy!”
- Ken & Becca, Buyers in Santa Monica
“Ben and his team were highly dedicated to selling our home and making the transaction smooth and painless. His marketing efforts were stellar, he is a true expert in Cheviot Hills and surrounding areas, and his legal background is a huge bonus navigating the intricacies of a real estate transaction that may be over the head of the average agent. We had multiple offers and back-up offers after the first open and we closed quickly, I am convinced Ben’s ability to deal with all parties involved, from the buyers to the bank were instrumental in the success of the transaction.”
- Ellen and Caro, Sellers in Cheviot Hills
“Ben Lee was my realtor and I wanted to share my experience of having Ben and his fine team help me sell my custom home and help me close the deal on my new home. Ben is the best realtor that I have worked with. He not only sold my home at the right price but he was also critical in helping me purchase my next home as well. Ben and his group made a difficult job seem easy. They did a brilliant job in the marketing of my custom 2-year old home with great ads and fantastic pictures on the web, and in the View section of the paper. We all have choices in picking people that we work with. As my father said to me when I was 20, people do business with people they like and it is also good to work with the best professionals, as they know what they are doing. Ben and all of his team really know their business and I can give them no higher recommendation.”
- Bob B., Seller in Cheviot and Buyer in Playa del Rey
“Ben Lee is one of the premier real estate brokers in Los Angeles. He handled the sale of my house in expert fashion. He is a former attorney and a very skilled and firm negotiator. More importantly, he is decent, honest, and has excellent people skills. I would highly recommend him to anybody looking to either purchase or sell their property. He's the best of the best.”
- Steven, Seller in Beverlywood
“As first time home buyers, we really appreciated Ben's knowledge of the process and willingness to explain (often multiple times) at each step of the way. Ben's relationships in Cheviot Hills, and goodwill generated to date, proved invaluable to getting our deal done.”
- Julie and Russell, Buyers in Cheviot Hills
“I worked directly with Ben and his team and was very impressed with Ben’s ability to represent both sides with his keen sense of what’s fair. He’s straightforward and efficient. Both the Seller and us, the Buyers, were so pleased and would highly recommend him. I think he’s a great guy.”
- Andy L., Buyer in Cheviot Hills
"When I started looking for homes, I found a realtor online, but all the offers we put in were getting rejected… then I called Ben. He and his team worked intensively with me, showing me many homes until we found the one that was perfect for me, and now we are closing escrow so soon! Thanks to Ben and Elizabeth’s tenacity, we got it!”
- Nino S., Buyer in Los Angeles
"My wife and I have lived in the same house for 42 years, and we made a decision after quite some thought that we wanted to move. Ben's name came up and it was almost 'love at first sight'. He was just an unbelieveable gentleman. He didn't push, didn't press and wasn't agressive. Beyond that, they went out of their way, they couldn't have been more helpful! It was like a family relationship, they were great. They just worked their tails of trying to find a place for us, which was difficult considering all that we were looking for in our new home. I've never met anyone in my life, beyond real estate, that has impressed me as much as the professionalism of the Ben Lee Team."
