Cynthia D. bought a home in Gainesville

We decided to move to Gainesville and with Ben Phillips' help we found the properties we were looking for. He was instrumental in creating a smooth transition while we were in the moving process and he provided help from finding contractors to finding the lawyer to manage the purchase. We highly recommend Ben for all your real estate needs. He is very reliable and a great human being. We LOVE Ben.

Shane R. bought a home in Gainesville

I just bought a house using Ben and his team. He located a few houses inside the parameters I mentioned and even brought a few to me that he personally thought I may like. I wasted no time with him and ended up buying a perfect house on which he negotiated a price under the appraisal value. Very satisfied!

Raven K. bought a home in Alachua

Ben made the home buying process easy and efficient. He always had our best interest in mind. He helped us negotiate offer terms with the owners to come up with something they would agree to instead of just giving up. He also helped us come up with an appropriate figure to get a credit for the items the home inspector had found that needed to be fixed. Raven K.

Chrissy C. bought a home in Gainesville

Ben was just terrific! We were making an out of state purchase and had very limited time to look at homes and make a decision. Ben listened carefully to what we needed and put together a list of homes in our price range that could meet our needs. He was extremely well organized, always got back to us quickly, was available when we needed him, and was very knowledgeable about the Gainesville area. His recommendations for inspectors, etc. were spot-on. We really appreciated that he didnt try to push us towards higher-priced properties, and his opinions about the pros and cons of each property made a lot of sense. The whole transaction went very smoothly and quickly. We highly recommend Ben Phillips! Chrissy C. ~ Folsom, CA

Jaquolyn O. sold a home in Gainesville

Selling a home in an area you are not familiar with is not an easy task. After meeting with Ben though, we knew we had nothing to worry about. He knows the area, knew his facts, priced the property right, and SOLD it for us in just a couple of weeks. Could not of asked for someone more professional! We would definitely recommend him to family and friends to get the job done. Jacquolyn O. ~ Nokomis, FL

Linda S. bought a home in Gainesville

Ben provided exceptional service when I recently purchased my business office. My goal was to find a space that was in the Thornbrooke area of Gainesville. I knew it would be difficult to find a space that matched my requirements. Ben found the perfect space and called me the day it went on the market. He also recommended and arranged for a carpenter, painter and flooring professionals to meet me so I would have a complete idea of what the cost would be to purchase and renovate. All within my budget. Ben kept on top of the required inspections and personally assisted/attended each meeting. The whole transaction went smoothly, timely and as stress-free as possible. Property is expensive, errors cost money, working with Ben I had absolutely no problems or issues. Throughout the transaction he listened to my concerns and was thorough when explaining options. I highly recommend working with Ben Phillips. Linda S., Owner, Center Point Consulting
