Having grown up in Melbourne’s outer east, Ben has been an active member of the community, attending local schools and playing both football and basketball at a junior level in local competitions. Ben’s knowledge of the local area and involvement in the community has been beneficial in building up a network of contacts and understanding the needs of the local buyers. Spending a few years living and working in London afforded the opportunity to travel as well as build upon his professional skills. With an extensive retail and hospitality background, as well as being a qualified Greenkeeper (golf courses) by trade Ben is keenly aware of the importance of being attentive and customer focused.
Ben’s growing Real Estate knowledge and his focus on communication have proven vital in his success and passion for helping buyers find their perfect home. Ben has a great understanding of what people think and want, and most importantly knows how to communicate effectively. Ben believes he is a people person, and enjoys meeting people from all walks of life.
Having grown up watching his father work in the Real Estate industry, it was a natural progression for Ben to join the industry, and he strives to be the very best that he can be, and a genuine, hardworking member of the local community. Ben is proud to be working for a trusted local company like the Methven Professionals. He recognises that the excellent reputation and company spirit have been earned through many years of hard work and professionalism. Ben spends his leisure time with his wife, Nicola & young daughters, catching up with family and friends, walking his dogs and relaxing.
Every property is different, so its important to choose the most effective method that suits your own home. The way we are marketing is constantly changing, for example we are now embracing the use of video and social media for the majority of new properties coming onto the market. We can accommodate all methods of sale and can even offer a No Sale No Charge package to suit all cases. Most agents are very similar when it comes to marketing, our major point of difference is our 4 office network and our large sales team. In short, our size means we speak to so many more buyers and are more in tune with our market. We know what homes are worth because we sell more of them than any one else in our area and have done so for a very long time. Our success has been built and earned over time and we are always looking forward to how we can improve our team, with constant training and evolving.
Ben and his team have done a fantastic job in selling our home, from the start every thing was handled in a very friendly but professional manner, from the initial meeting with Ben, through the photographer and video operator, team visit open house etc. We don't think it could have been handled any better, the service and communication was and still is first rate, we would definitely have no hesitation in recommending Ben and his fine team.
A Professional Experience!
We are incredibly pleased to have used The Professionals to sell our home. The journey through gaining an appraisal, having the photos taken and the description written, to holding the Inspections and having the offers presented to us and finally selling our house, was a pleasurable experience. Ben Weeks was the perfect agent. His approachable and professional manner has made the process a smooth and easy transaction. We would recommend his expertise and friendly demeanour to anyone wanting to sell their house.
Because of Bens great and professional skills we were thrilled to sell our house in just 8 days, and at the high end of our marketed price. We are moving interstate and Ben has been extremely helpful, patient and AWSOME with each approach to us, he has kept constant contact and helped to make our sale experience problem and stress free, we would be very prepared to recommend Ben and his team to anyone.
