Ben’s Resume Summary
Ben Beesley is a second generation native of the Monterey community and has been a part of the Carmel community for over 40 years, when he started attending school at Junipero Serra. Not only does he manage a successful real estate business in Carmel and surrounding communities, he also helps bring the community together though his efforts with various Non Profits in the community and supporting the Carmel Chamber of Commerce events and membership. Over the years, he has been able to see Carmel grow from a quaint artistic village, home to Ben and his friends and family, to a world wide destination for its prestigious art district, superior wine tasting rooms, succulent restaurants, primary homes to many as well as second homes, small town feel, and of course a spectacular coastline surrounded by world class golf courses, and so much more.
As a practitioner of real estate in Carmel, California since 2002, Ben Beesley brings a wealth of experience with him; as him and his team have helped hundreds of clients buy and sell their homes. Voted “The Best REALTOR® in Monterey County for 2011” by the readers of the Monterey County Weekly and “The Best REALTOR®/Brokerage Firm in Carmel California” for the “Awards of Excellence 2013” by the Carmel Chamber of Commerce, Ben and his team specialize in helping buy and sell homes in Carmel. Short sales, investment opportunities, second homes, and luxury estates are all something that he has extensive experience in.
Ben’s business model is different by design; he has a passion for people and helping any way he can. Because of this, he has built his business on personal touches, win-win deals and positive results. He utilizes the latest technologies, market research and business strategies to exceed his client’s expectations. More importantly, Ben prides himself on listening and that means he is able to find the motivations and as a result, the solutions that are tailored to his client’s real estate goals. Ben’s philosophy is that a home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls, it is about how his client’s feel when they walk through the front door and how they can instantly envision their life unfolding there. A home is more than “real estate”, its about his client’s life and dreams.
In additions to his Real Estate Career, Beesley has travelled with Up with People, Sales Manager with The Portola Plaza (When it was The Doubletree Hotel where Ben headed up the CARE Committee), Past Director of Alumni Relations for Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo (his alma mater) and Loyola Marymont.
