He has been licensed since 2007 and joined Joe Manausa Real Estate in 2013. A graduate of Florida State University, Ben entered the field of real estate as a “second career” after 27 successful years in the hotel business.
He chose to return to Tallahassee because he loves the beauty of the landscape, the southern hospitality and the rich and diverse culture of the city.
Ben has a strong customer service background and extensive business experience. He has also been an investor of real estate and has bought and sold his own personal residences as well as rental properties in both good times and bad. These experiences have helped him to understand both the buyer’s and seller’s perspective and will benefit you when you choose him to represent you as your real estate professional.
