My husband and I were so blessed and fortunate to have had Ben Ewing as our realtor. We contacted him via Zillow in February to schedule a showing of a house we had been interested in. Unfortunately, the house was already under contract, but Ben met with us to go over what we were looking for in a house and to determine our budget. From there, he scheduled multiple showings for us for a two month period and was very patient with us being first time home buyers. He is very knowledgeable in the real estate process and multiple loan options, as well as the local area. Ben was also able to point us in the right direction in terms of a lender and possible construction companies in the area for home renovations. In April, we ultimately found our home and recently closed! These last 6 months could have been incredibly more stressful with the house, planning a wedding (my husband and I were married in June), and both of us working full time jobs, but Ben and his wife, Ashley, were there with us every step of the way; explaining homeowner's insurance, talking us through the process, reassuring when the lender took longer with the bid, and listening as we discussed our hopes, dreams, and fears about becoming homeowners. With any other realtor, I don't think my husband and I would have been able to find the house of our dreams and make it through the last 6 months. We are incredibly grateful to have met the Ewings and would highly recommend Ben to anyone looking for a realtor in the Benzie/Grand Traverse area! Less ... More

Hi Ben! Should have gotten to this sooner... House is a treat, so far so good! Thinking back on the process I'm still a little confused (the two fours might just reflect my OWN lingering confusion...) but you and Brian got me through it and I couldn't be more grateful. As a first time home buyer and being ignorant of pretty much anything related to real estate, plus working the hours I do, I am glad I ultimately put my trust in you. I never would have found the place without you and it's a keeper. Wishing you a Happy New Year and hoping your hard work, patience and professionalism wins you some more happy customers! Thanks, Thomas Votruba Less ... More

Helped me find tenant for rental
Ben has been very helpful in handling our rental unit. We are local residents only a small part of the year, and we depend on him to handle lease negotiations and other details in preparing our property for new renters. We would definitely recommend Ben , conscientious and willing to go the extra mile.

Ben went out of his way and way above what most people give to their paying clients.....and I was the mom of a friend, ...not even a client yet....He met me at the listing and had several other spots to show me. He was fair and honest to both parties involved when looking at a home that was not on the market yet. I trust Ben and would recommend him to others......Debra Fast Reed

I used Ben as my buyer's agent. He was absolutely amazing! Ben responded to me promptly whenever I contacted him. His negotiating skills are excellent! He is very professional in his work. It was a relief to know that Ben had my best interests at hand and went above and beyond what a Realtor is required to do to make sure those interests were protected. I have already recommended him to those I know and will continue to do so. Ben truly is a top notch Realtor!

I beagan working witg Ben in May, 2013 after surfing houses and requesting info on a particular listing, I live downstate and wanted a place in Benzie County for a get away. He called within in ten minutes to introduce himself and get a feel for what my needs and wants were. From there, we met to look at many properties over the next few months. We made a few offers that did not work out on a couple houses and during those processes, Ben gave me great advise and had a real command of the how to determine my offers. He kept me appraised of new listings and this led to a benzie County purchase Nov 7. Ben it very trustworthy I have come to find and honest; something that is really rare these days. He is open minded and easy going to work with and will go to bat during negotiations. I would suggest if you have the desire to engage a realtor that will work for you and never try to pressure you into doing something you do not want to do, Ben should be your agent. I will work with him again when I need a realtor in Northern MI. Rob Dempsey Plymouth/Benzonia MI Less ... More

We were looking for a property we could use as an investment and he was very responsive and found us the perfect location, one we hadn't even considered in our own searches. Ben was great to work with and we look forward to working with him again in the future.

Ben was both very knowledgeable and attentive as he guided me in the purchase of my first home. He informed me of some financing programs and grants that I was not even aware of, and always returned my texts or emails right away. His negotiation skills are also top-notch, and I was able to make an offer on my house that was a lot lower than what I expected the seller to accept. I highly recommend him to both first-time buyers and those who may be looking for a second or vacation home.

Ben is very helpful in the search for a home! He knows a lot about the area and has great communication skills. We have known him for almost a year and have only met with him twice in person!! We live out of the area and most of our preliminary work took place over the internet. Ben provided listings to sort through even before we were able to look in person. He also provided contacts for insurance quotes, financing, and local craftsman to provide the finishing touches.

Helped me buy home
This was my first time buying a house, and I wanted to find an agent who would be patient and not pushy. Ben was fantastic. I don't think I could have had an easier experience. He listened to exactly what I wanted, and I ended up making an offer on the second house I saw. Not only that, he advised me through each step of the purchasing process, and everything took less than two weeks. I can't recommend him enough.

Mr. Ewing was very helpful while I was buying a house. I bought my property while in another state essentially. He made that possible. He was very quick, and the process was very simple. I was able to trust him to handle the buy for me. He knew what needed to be done and was able to work well with the seller on my behalf. I would definitely recommend him to any of my friends or family looking to buy a house.

Ben is an excellent realtor with great knowledge of the current market. He was always very professional and went above and beyond the typical duties of a realtor. Ben was able to help us navigate through the purchase of a very difficult foreclosure process all the while keeping our best interest as the main focus. I would definitely use Ben again and personally recommend him.

Long-term management of a property
I have been an attorney for 25 years and have used Mr. Ewing's real estate services and knowlege both professionally and personally. He is fabulous. He is extremely knowledgeable, has an absolutely winning personality, and is as honest as the day is long. I would never consider using anyone else for real estate transactions and advice.

Mr Ewing exceeded my expectations. He negotiated a very complicated and large land contract. I felt very comfortable with him throughout the entire process. My spouse also enjoyed learning about the local area from Ben. He did a great job of listening to our needs and helping to match properties we were looking for. I feel like we got a great deal on the house we are buying!! I really don't think another realtor would have made this happen. We feel like we made a new friend, but also felt like we had an exceptional real estate representative. I would trust Ben with any real estate transaction!! Less ... More
