Client Testimonials

Ben recently helped me purchase a property. I am a first time home owner, and going into the purchase process, I was expecting to have to spend countless hours looking for the right property and then purchasing that property. Ben's expertise and knowledge of the downtown Minneapolis area made finding properties a breeze and then the purchase offer and close process were completely stress free as Ben took care of all of the details for me. What set Ben apart in his performance relative to other realtors I spoke to was that Ben has a strong, united team that handles everything from property location, home showings, mortgage recommendations, etc - no stone was left unturned by Ben and his team. Strong recommendation to Ben Ganje.

Ben was such a pleasure to work with. He helped my boyfriend and I make our first home purchase, which could have been a very stressful process had Ben not been so great. After over a year at looking at properties, we finally put in our offer. Ben helped us negotiate a great price and we are so happy in our new place. Never once, even after many texts and emails, did Ben not hold himself in the most professional and upbeat manner. I don't see myself working with any other realtor in the future.

We were so lucky to find Ben, especially since we were relocating to Minneapolis and had so little knowledge of the Twin Cities.  He took the time to understand what we were looking for, and he helped us find the best options on a very tight schedule.  We thoroughly enjoyed all of our interactions, and we appreciated the depth of his knowledge and his positive attitude--which saw us through some initial disappointments in a real estate market that moves much more quickly than where we were coming from.  He also took the time to research a property we were initially interested in, and to give us the information we needed in order to make a wise and informed decision.  Relocating to the Twin Cities just wouldn't have been so much fun--or had such a successful outcome--without Ben.  He was instrumental, too, in referring us to a local mortgage broker who was just as professional and informed.  We're so grateful for all the help he gave us, and we can recommend him with enthusiasm to anyone.  His particular expertise is in more central, upscale properties.

Ben's enthusiasm and knowledge of local real estate is second to none.  Highly recommended to help in buying or selling.  He has a great marketing presence online as well as connections in the real world.  He's always friendly and excited about helping his clients.

We went through a number of agents before Ben Ganje was able to sell our home.  He brought a plan together that involved updating, staging and marketing our home to get the traffic we needed for an offer to materialize.  Ben clearly exceeded our expectations and we would proudly refer his name out to anyone looking to sell their home in the Twin Cities.

There is a book called Freakonomics. For those of you who haven't read it, part of the book states that the real estate market is inefficient because real estate agents just want you to buy or sell a place to get the commission, and they don't really care about 10k here or there to the buyer or seller. The authors of that book must not have met Ben. I have recently bought a place with Ben and I have no doubt that not only did he work hard to save me every penny (with my interests as his number one concern), but he also got me into exactly the right place. I would not buy or sell in the downtown or lakes area without Ben. He knows the market extremely well -- he can tell you (usually off the top of his head) why a certain location, or even building, is good or bad, and almost always based on his experience and not something that could be found out otherwise. He is also extremely responsive and will give you honest answers. In fact, there were a couple of times that I was ready to buy a place and Ben stopped me by explaining that it was not right because x, y and z. Of course he turned out to be correct and with a little patience we found the right place. I would highly recommend Ben for anyone looking at real estate. He is by far the best I have ever dealt with.

This team is the best in the Twin Cities, hands down. They are by far the most educated about the marketplace and are also an extremely genuine and fun team to work with. I will use Ben and his team for life!

I first met Ben when I was moving into my condo over 6 years ago.  While I didn't know him when I purchased my unit, I knew he was the right realtor to use when it came time to sell it.  Ben was able to quickly sell my condo for a fair price while I was relocating.  He runs a very professional office and he and his staff are courteous, attentive, and thorough.
