benjamin smail omaha realtor reviews

I’m so humbled to work with such wonderful clients. Here’s my report card of their experiences working with me:

Ben helped my husband and I buy our first home together and sell the home I already owned.

Ben listened to our buying needs/wants and considered those in suggesting homes we might view, answered questions promptly, and was flexible with our demanding work/school schedules. When we were ready to make an offer, he was outstanding at providing the education we needed (husband was a first-time buyer; I am not). Buying our first home together was so smooth, many thanks to Ben!

Ben also helped us put together a reasonable timeline and listing price for the Benson-area home I needed to sell, which included a pre-inspection and staging. Our home listed on time and sold in one evening for above asking price. Further negotiations were trying at times, and Ben was professional in his communication with us and with the buyer’s agent.

I would recommend Ben time and time again. He’s great on his own, and his team adds an additional layer of comfort and flexibility.

It’s pretty rare that I write reviews but Ben was phenomenal and I had to brag about him. I purchased my first home this year. After hearing my friends rave about their amazing home buying experience with Ben, I knew he was the realtor for me.

Poor Ben was bombarded with questions but still made sure to get back to me ASAP without judgement (sorry again for all the newbie questions). He guided me through tours while teaching me the correct questions to ask and what to look out for when buying a home. He was nothing but honest with me from the start and that was EXACTLY what I needed. There was not a step in the process that I did not know about. He had my best interest in mind at ALL times.

I can’t thank Ben enough for making the home buying process so easy. If I am ever in the market to buy/sell my home Ben is the first person I would call. You are the best Ben!

P.S. I didn’t forget about Aubrey (his business partner). She is equally as awesome. Team Ben and Aubrey for the win. You both have my vote. If you want a team that will be honest with you from the start, patient, and that will you put you at ease throughout the entire buying process they are the ones you want to call!

Ben began my providing us with a frame of reference for the market and the home-buying process which helped us set realistic expectations for our search. As first time home-buyers, we proceeded to ignore everything we had learned, and very quickly got excited about a number of homes, certain that each one was our dream home.

Ben brought an unfathomable amount of patience to the process; for each home, he listened to our musings, sent us disclosure statements and comparable properties, accommodated our long distance home search by coordinating home tours with our families, and provided us with a perspective that made us so much more confident each step of the way. Once the offer was made and sale agreed, Ben continued to act as a trusted advisor as he helped us navigate the surprising amount of activity that happens after the sale is agreed. Ben’s commitment to serving his clients well and his network of trusted resources made buying our first home a great experience.

Ben did a wonderful job helping us sell our house. He helped us to set a good asking price, taking into account the considerable renovation work that we had done. Ben really went above and beyond; his social media and traditional media marketing strategy resulted in us literally having a line of prospective buyers waiting for the doors to open for our open house. Once the buyers were inside, Ben’s staging efforts really paid off. By the end of day one we had two offers at the asking price and one offer above the asking price. For perspective, the asking price we chose was significantly higher than both the previous sale prices as well as the county tax assessment value.

We had a few hiccups during the closing process, but Ben helped us navigate through them and we succeeded in closing on the original closing date.

I would recommend Ben and his team to absolutely anyone. The guy rocks and he gets things done.

Ben was wonderful to work with. We were selling my mother-in-laws house who just moved into a senior living facility and was very attached to her home of over 30 years. Ben was able to comfort her and made sure she understood the process, the good and the needed to be addressed aspects of her home, how and why he came to the asking price (spot on by the way) and treated her and her home with respect as like it was his own family.

He recommended people to help us in the areas we did not want to work on ourselves. Ben went over the home inspection with all of us and what items should, could and need not to be addressed prior to listing. I was able to reach Ben no matter what day or time it was and I never felt I was inconveniencing him. The house had over 60 showings in 2 days and sold for cash $16,500 over asking price. My daughter also had Ben find her a home in Omaha last year and she had nothing but great things to say about him. I have and will highly recommend Ben to anyone buying or selling a home.

I will always recommend Ben! He was patient when I didn’t know exactly what I wanted in a house. We looked at some to help me decide and continued when none of them were the perfect match. Ben is knowledgeable, from his experience and passion to learn about everything, he pointed out things that I wouldn’t have thought to pay attention to. You can search for a house with the right look and feel, he will find out the facts and details. One more thing that makes Ben Smail a fantastic realtor is he is accessible. He is available by phone, email, or text. He responds quickly or will tell you a time frame for when he can respond better. I have a busy schedule to work around and he accommodated that. He is your realtor!
