Hardly a day goes by that we do not discuss how lucky we were to have had Ben Greenway as our real estate agent who helped us find our La Mesa home. Ben was helpful in targeting San Diego neighborhoods that offered properties that met our requirements but were still listed within our price range. Ben arranged his personal schedule to be available for the property inspection and he was available to answer questions regarding the timely submission of documents. After the sale Ben didn’t just walk away looking for other clients. He became our friend and a great friend indeed.

Ben Greenway at Ben Franklin Properties bent over backwards for us when we bought our first home. He and his team made everything easy for us, even when it came to signing docs. My wife and I are really busy with school and work that we didn’t always have time to make phone calls. Ben Franklin Properties allowed us to view, sign and print everything online. I would absolutely recommend them.~Nicholas B.
Made it a seamless and pain free process. Supposed to be one of the most stressful times in your life…not with Ben. Take the worry out of buying a house and know someone looking out for your best interest is helping you. Go with Ben Franklin Properties, they are upfront with you every step of the way and you will not regret the decision.~Aaron B.
Ben Greenway was FANTASTIC! He is the type of realtor who goes above and beyond for his client. We were buying a home in Temecula and even though he typically stays in the San Diego area (about an hour south of Temecula), he took us on with no problem. We bought from a distance (lived in Maine at the time) and he kept us up-to-date on new properties, went to check them out for us, and provided a smooth process in home buying. He is well known and has many connections in the surrounding areas, so we ended up getting a better mortgage because of his many connections. My husband and I did a VA loan as we are military and there were no hiccups in the process. We arrived in Temecula and he made sure everything was taken care of for us ahead of time, so all we had to do was the final walk thru and get the keys. I cannot recommend Ben Greenway highly enough!!!! Go with Ben- you will not be sorry : )~Jennifer H.
Ben was great when I was looking for a house. He listened to my needs, was not pushy and above all was very honest with his insights when we saw different properties. I will recommend Ben to all my friends looking for new places. he is a stand out person that you can trust. Also, his team is very competent and able to answer any questions that you may have during the home buying process. Ben was recommended to me by one of my friends and it was the best advice I took.~Alex T.
I was so scared to buy my first condo, but you held my hand throughout the whole transaction. You made me feel very comfortable and helped me understand each step of the process. It really meant a lot to have an agent that was willing to go the extra mile. It is so fun to be able to check the homeowner box on applications!!~Shannon B.
I have been doing loans a long time, and there are always so many issues that come up in a transaction. For my own transaction, Ben Franklin Properties helped me find the best rates for my investment property loan. The whole thing was seamless. I know there must have been issues, but I guess BFP solved them all without making it a hassle for me. Thanks!!~Tony B.
When I bought my first condo, it was nothing but headaches through the whole transaction. But when I used Ben Franklin Properties to sell my condo and buy my house, they made it so easy. They were even able to close both deals on the same day – the whole things seemed so problem-free!~Aaron P.
Ben recently represented us in the purchase of our new home in San Diego. His experience in reading the market, the seller and the situation helped us save $21,000. I was fully prepared to go full price but listened to Ben’s counsel and was thoroughly impressed with the outcome. His creed of treating each sale and purchase as if it were his own truly showed through.
His assistance and expertise didn’t end with the sale. He watched over every detail of the close, assisted in locating competent, reasonably priced subcontractors for the minor repairs required and never gave the impression he was only in it for the sale. He seems to truly love his job.
We feel very fortunate to have found Ben and will definitely be sending our kids his way when they’re ready and able to buy.
My husband and I bought our home in April of 2011. Ben was amazing! As first time home owners we came into this process knowing nothing except how much we wanted to spend. Ben worked with our schedule and showed us homes that fit within our budget. He was organized and honest!!! We walked into some of the houses and he pointed out the Pros & Cons of each home. We felt comfortable working with him and trusted his input. Most of all we felt like he was on our side working to benefit our needs/wants. We found our dream home and with Ben’s help we bought it!!! Ben is amazing and we hope to work with him when we are ready to buy home #2.
My husband and I bought our very first home from Ben (won’t be our last!) back in April of 2011. He made it SOOO easy. As first time home owners, we went in having absolutely no idea what to expect. Ben was up front about everything – there were NO surprises!! Heard so many horror stories about buying a home… and we didn’t have ANY issues. Best thing about Ben was he was completely honest about each home we visited… never tried to push us to buy anything and gave us all the info we needed. He really treated the processes as if he was going to buy – giving us his opinion on what he thought of each house (pros and cons). We learned SO much!! Now, we have our DREAM San Diego home and life couldn’t be better.~Jenn B.
Karina was wonderful. Thorough and responsive, she made sure she found as many properties as possible, given my confined parameters. She worked with title companies and loan officers to make sure everything went smoothly and didn’t quit on me even after 10 months of ongoing searching. That to me says she is dedicated to her craft. I would recommend her to anyone, and already have to some friends and family!~Pam D.
When my fiance and I were in the market to buy a home, we turned to Karina Greenway at Ben Franklin Properties. Her husband Ben runs the business full time and everyone on their team is fantastic. As a first time home buyer, I’ve heard the process was hard, but I had the best time “shopping” with Karina! It was so easy to schedule time with her to view properties and she took me all over San Diego. Even though I might have been tired, she kept me going. They were very patient and understanding and stuck with us until we found the right place. We were able to close ahead of schedule and they even provided a great reference for a mortgage broker.We’ll be ready for our next place in a year or two, and will definitely be using Ben Franklin again as our realtor.~Kimberly G.
My husband and I used Ben at Ben Franklin Properties to buy our home. I had already been through the home buying process with my first home, so I kind of knew what to expect. However, Ben made the process much easier than my first realtor did! It took us about 9 months to finally find something we both liked, but Ben was patient the whole time and always willing to take us to look at properties….even when his schedule was tight. He is very knowledgable and provided my husband and I with the proper guidance needed to make one of the biggest decisions of your life!~Gina S.
