My Client Reviews
Ben was one of the best agents we have ever worked with. We have moved here from Canada and Ben made this process easy. Ben answered all of our questions and concerns we had. We would highly recommend him to our family and friends.
Ben is exceptionally talented in what he does, but most importantly he is an amazing human being. His experience and knowledge provide such a huge advantage to you, whether you are a seller or buyer! When we first were considering selling our property, we met with Ben. He came prepared with a binder full of information to help us better understand the comps in the area, the estimated closing costs, and a list of reviews. Not only that, but he made it very clear that he was always going to look after us, even if we decided not to use his services in the sale of our property. Who does all that work with no strings attached!? We knew within the first 10 minutes of meeting Ben that he was going to be our guy. Ben helped us sell our home - $100k over asking with over 10 offers in the first few days! He made sure the process was smooth and hassle-free. Ben knows the right people to work with to ensure things are easy and he has amazing relationships with them! As we were finishing up the sale of one house, we fell in love with a house 70 miles away. You know who was the first person we told? Ben. We continued to work with him and are closing on that house early! Again, he made sure we were always taken care of and that the paperwork was always completed the right way and on time. We could blindly trust Ben with anything, but he never gives you the opportunity because he ALWAYS makes sure you fully understand and agree to everything. Ben has become much more than just an agent, he is a friend. He is a hard-working, family man that will always look out for you. Stop reading, call him now! You will not regret it!
Ben is an agent extraordinaire - an absolute rockstar. This was the second time that Ben has assisted us with the purchase and/or sale of a home and each time he has exceeded our high expectations in every facet of the process. I had the sense the entire time that he engages as if it is his home and we are his family. He is exceptionally detail oriented and was in constant communication, every step of the way, even to share when there was no news to share. Considering how emotionally invested one can become in transactions of this nature, it was incredibly reassuring to feel informed and empowered. In fact, we found that we were not as attentive to the detail this last time knowing that Ben was our champion and advocate. From the very start, with the detailed analysis of the market he provides - both the good news and the less than great news - through the offer process, and closing, absolutely every detail was shepherded with finesse. It was obvious that he was much more professional and knowledgeable than the agents of those viewing our home. Oh, and the sale of our home was $25K over asking price, within a matter of days of listing it, ultimately pushing the market higher in our area. As an additional factor in our sale, we moved across the country before the house was listed, and everything was absolutely seamless for us. We are exceptionally grateful for Ben's meticulous customer service and excellent work.

Ben Samimi is the consummate real estate professional, aka real estate rockstar. There was no question that we would call on Ben to serve as our sellers agent following the exceptional experience we had with him as our buyers agent. On either side of the deal, Ben was our attentive and unrelenting advocate. He managed every step of the process tightly to ensure that we closed quickly and with terms to our advantage. He was incredibly responsive and communicative on the status and pending action items. Also, Ben got us an awesome price for our property. We were initially concerned that the asking price was too much, but Ben came prepared! He shared all of the comps in the area, the differences in the properties (both positive and negative), and the benefits/risks of different price points. Ben was right he brought in multiple offers above asking price! He truly is an amazing realtor. Our sincere thanks to Ben for his exceptional service.

In short, Ben Samimi is an outstanding professional whom I would highly recommend. My husband and I entered the real estate market a bit more quickly than expected seeing a property listed in which we were both intrigued by. I reached out to Ben based upon a referral and his reputation as an exemplary agent, and indeed my high expectations were exceeded. Ben was absolutely meticulous with all of the details, very communicative, and of high integrity. We received regular updates on the status of items, items pending by either the seller or by us, and words of encouragement along the way. He also responded to questions usually within minutes (if not moments). He was honest with us during the negotiation process when our emotions might have got in the way, and clearly laid out all options to provide us the best advantage. During the process, the seller's escrow agent was a smidge slow so Ben helped to keep it moving such that the seller also commended Ben for his diligence and persuasion. The whole process took less than four weeks, from our offer to keys in our hands. Quite amazing, really, and all thanks to Ben. I must say, in addition to his exceptional professionalism, Ben is a real pleasure to work with; he's personable and fun. He's the agent to have on your side - we trust Ben implicitly. Our sincerest gratitude to Ben.
It was a pleasure to work with Ben from beginning to end. His professionalism was above and beyond any expectations. He made sure to keep us informed through the whole process. I would highly recommend him to any seller or buyer who wants to work with someone who knows what he is doing as well as being available to answer all questions that may come up during the process. Ben truly is one-of-a-kind. If you want a dedicated, honest and trustworthy person Ben is the guy for you.
My wife and I were very anxious to find a new property in a location where usually not many properties come onto the market with the floor plan we wanted. We happened upon Ben when we reviewed some sold listings and noticed he was the agent. We tried our luck by calling Ben. Immediately, he was very friendly and appeared very knowledgeable about the market generally and our preferred location. He answered many of our questions, helped us locate an off market listing that met our criteria, and was always very communicative as soon as he had wind of a listing that met our needs. We are now the proud owners of a property that was exactly the plan in the exact community we were hoping to buy.
Ben went above and beyond as our agent! As first-time buyers, we were full of anxiety and dread. If buying a house was anything like buying a car, we knew it was going to be an uphill battle. However, as soon as we met with Ben, our anxiety melted away! Ben was there for every step of the process. He was clear and knowledgeable. It was like he knew what our questions were going to be even before we asked him. What I loved most about working with Ben was just how committed he was. I'm sure he had other clients but you would never know that! He was always there to take our calls if we had questions or concerns. And that dread- gone! I will never work with anyone else in the future.
What can I say, I went into the home buying process, not knowing what to expect. I knew it was complicated, I knew it was confusing, but I didn't know much else. That's where Ben comes in, he not only helped me navigate the home buying process, but he explained each and every step and why it was important. He made himself available to answer questions and address concerns, and truly showed he has my back. When it came time for inspections he had a team of extremely knowledgeable people that made the inspection process quick easy and very informative. It took almost 5 months to find the right house, Ben was patient with me and kept reassuring me that this process takes time and not to settle. This is my first home, but definitely not my last home. I plan on using Ben for all future real estate needs.

My wife and I were beyond blessed to have Coldwell Bank realtor Ben Samimi work with us in selling our home in Porter Ranch, CA. In my experiences in conducting business, we were well pleased and impressed with Bens professionalism from the very first visit. He was well prepared in showing us local listings of our community and past sales for price comparison to make a fair market price for our home. We were further impressed with his knowledge and professionalism and how he conducted his presentation. From that moment, my wife and I knew this was the right person for the selling of our home. Throughout the entire time of the transaction of our home, Ben always kept us up on every detail, either by phone, email and text. We never felt we had to go track him down about any information; he was always there with answers and guidance for us and sometimes, even before we asked. Above all with Ben being a consumate professional, he is genuinely courteous and well mannered. He is always patient and has an even disposition. We were very happy with Ben and I would highly recommend him to anyone selling their home or looking to buy; they will not be disappointed with his knowledge and expertise. Coldwell Realty is very lucky to have such an awesome realtor. Our expectations were exceeded thanks to Ben. I have recommended his service to neighbors who are thinking about selling their home in the near future. 10 stars for sure. All the best and thank you Ben for the process in selling our home. Neil
I never sold a house before and I was nervous . But I met Ben a number of years earlier and liked his attitude. I called him and he completely put me ar ease with his manner, attention to detail, especially knowledge of my neighborhood and helped with pricing, staging of my home, a fantastic video which brought many buyers. My house sold the first weekend at a price much higher than the ask!!! Ben Samimi is the best. I recommend him highest in his field. Edna S Sacks 2/3/2021.
I was very glad to have had Ben Samimi as my realtor. He possesses many positive qualities which made me feel confident about the whole buying process. He is an all around nice and genuine realtor who makes the process as pain free as possible. And his dedication and commitment are unsurpassed. He came highly recommended to me by my sister and brother in law. They were very impressed by him and I couldn't agree more. He is very conscientious and will not disappoint. In addition, he allayed any worries that I had by reassuring me during various steps throughout the process. Ben makes you feel at ease and definitely does not put any pressure on you to make decisions that you aren't comfortable making. Also, he educates you about the buying process while guiding you at the different junctures along the way. He has a very helpful nature and is appreciative of his clients. And they are appreciative of him as well.
Terry & Debroah H.
Ben Samimi did an excellent job in selling our residence in the Aldea community. He has excellent insight and understanding of the local real estate market in the Porter Ranch and Northridge area and was always very professional in dealing with us. Ben had great attention to detail and always responded and communicated to us in a very timely manner, which greatly eased the stress of home selling. His forecasts for various selling costs and project net sale proceeds were quite accurate. We greatly appreciated Ben's hard work and efforts in our behalf in selling our home for the best price and in a very timely manner. We would strongly recommend Ben to anyone needing real estate help in the Porter Ranch area.
Thank you Ben for a great job well done. Ben has accomplished for my family in few short weeks what many previous agents that have failed for us for several years. From the beginning when we first met, he understood exactly what we were looking for and delivered to us as Buyers a great exceptional home that matched 100% of our requirements and on a great deal. His negotiations skills came in handy to get us a deal and we closed escrow in couple short weeks. His extended networking contacts got us moving and settled in quickly as the COVID-19 challenges took place. At the same time we are buying our house, he has put his other hat on and start the plan for us as Sellers now and started planning the steps for the process for selling our old house. He studied the market carefully, came up with an excellent market entry action plan and utilizing the many innovation tools delivered a well balanced marketing package that facilitated virtual showings for many prospective buyers with top notch photos, video and 3D Modelling. He reached out in short time to over 10,000 viewers using the dozens of these photos and the extended video presentation with 3D modelling that facilitated showcasing the house and got us little short of a 100 interested qualified buyers. His exceptional negotiations skills with the various agents got us a great deal with multiple buyers backup offers in a short time. Ben was not afraid of the current market uncertainty & associated challenges due to COVID-19 and even the private showing limitations that came with it. He was always confident that we will sell the house in short time and a great price. Overall, what we loved about Ben is that both transactions that he was always details oriented, meticulous, calculated every step on the way and prepared us for the following moving forward step. His patience and market experience got us bridged through the few moments of anxiety but on top, knowing his extensive experience we knew we were in good hands. The past few months, Ben made the difficult easy. We sold our old house and got settled in our new house with smooth escrow operations and an excellent team that assisted Ben in escrow and title. I highly recommend Ben for all my friends and family and I encourage whomever reading this review to count on Ben for all your future transactions. He is unique and will go the extra mile to deliver beyond your expectations. Again, thanks you Ben for a double job well done twice. You are #1.
Ben was amazing to work with and a true professional while we were selling our house. He went above and beyond with every detail and was in constant communication with us through every step of the process. I am extremely grateful we had Ben as our agent
Ben is the most trustworthy person that I ever met as realtor. Even though he was a seller's agent. I chose him as my agent as well and I don't regret at all. He knows what his doing and he always tried to help me. I recommend him to anybody who wants to buy or sell house. Thank you Ben!
Ben is Amazing!! What can I say...He truly is dedicated to any task at hand. His professional service is radiant through his work ethics. His attention to detail, rapid responses along with his knowledgeable experience is a FORCE to be dealt with. I can't say enough about this young man! I refer him to all of my family and friends whenever someone is in the real estate market. I have used Ben through buying/selling 5 of my properties and I can tell you I have never been disappointed with his service. Ben is the definition of the word SERVICE!!! who goes beyond the call of duty and leaves no stone unturned. I can sleep at night knowing Ben has my real estate needs in his hands.
Previous review from Rodney T.
Ben was referred to me and I can see why> He lived up to everything I heard about him. He treated the sell of my home as his #1 priority. He provided exceptional service. That is hard to fine these days!!
Ben is by far the BEST realtor that my wife and I have had the pleasure to work with. We have worked with several other realtors in the past and did not experience this level of top-notch service.Â Ben came to our initial meeting with lots of helpful information and explained his process in a way that demonstrated his expertise in real estate. He provided recommendations for skilled contractors for a number of repairs, was super responsive and offered us excellent advice in dealing with several issues that arose over the course of the sales process. Â Â We're very grateful for Ben's help. He always follows through, is transparent, honest and passionate about what he does. We will continue to recommend Ben to our friends and colleagues.Â Thanks again for everything Ben!
We used Ben for 2 real estate transactions this year. He did a fantastic job on both transactions. His attention to detail and follow up are unsurpassed. I would highly recommend him to anyone who was looking to buy or sell a house. I gave him a 5 star rating only because a 6th star was not available !!
Ben has exceeded all our expectations throughout our buying process. He has been right by our side from the day we started looking for a house until the day we moved in. I have never felt so well taken care of. Ben is very trustworthy as he is very transparent about everything and also very honest. He provided helpful insight throughout the process so that each time we came to a decision, we felt like we were making the right one. Ben is extremely detailed oriented and will not cut any corners. He made sure we got the maximum benefit at each milestone. He somehow got our offer accepted with it being on the market for only 4 days and convinced the selling party to cancel their open house. He also worked with the lender and escrow to help us close early. He kept everyone involved on their toes. He also kept us well informed telling us at each step what to expect next and when to expect it. His communication is excellent, leaving no ambiguity. He responds in lighting speed regardless of the time of day or night. Most importantly Ben is just a great guy who is awesome at what he does.
I wish there were rooms for more stars. Ben bought the property for me 6 years ago. It doesn't matter if he is your representative as buyer or seller. He is always doing a great job. He was caring about the job like he is selling or buying his own property. I highly recommend him to anybody who is planning to sell or buy a property. Thanks Ben.
Previous review from siavash s.
Ben is a professional realtor. We just came to him for renting a property and ended up by buying a property! He got the best deal in a short period of the time (almost one month) for us. He knows the market very well. His negotiation tricks are fantastic. He has also a friendly and respectful personality. I highly recommend him to work with.
As a first time landlord I had many uncertainties for listing my property. Ben has been a valuable resource from start to finish. I chose Ben because of his intimate knowledge of the local area and a trusted source for many other homeowners in the community. If I had something he couldn't answer, he would have a resource to help me find one. With my situation Ben really helped me out, as I was not local at the time of listing. Ben took the extra mile beyond just a listing agent to coordinate many things on my behalf. He is very professional and dedicated to his clients. I really appreciate all the time Ben spent to make me feel at ease listing for the first time and his responsiveness to all my questions throughout the entire process night and day. I'll definitely continue to work with Ben and recommend his services to others.
I have been in many real estate transactions with Ben over the last 10 years. Ben has always been professional, responsive and trustworthy. I have come to depend on his enthusiasm and dedication in every situation. I know that Ben will deftly smooth the sometimes bumpy road and guide me through a successful real estate transaction. Thank you, Ben!
Previous review from Wendy K.
I have worked with Ben both as a buyer and seller for more than 10 years. I've come to expect and rely on his professionalism, responsiveness and dependability. If Ben says he'll take care of it; HE WILL. And he will do it efficiently. He is always on time and makes you know you are in good hands while he deftly smooths the bumps in the real estate process. Thank you, Ben!
Previous review from Wendy K.
Ben has been my friend and real estate professional for over 10 years. Together we have sold 2 homes and bought 2 homes. We are presently selling my home in Porter Ranch. With all the ins and outs and ups and downs of real estate...I am grateful that Ben Samimi is here to guide, protect, advise and represent me.
Previous review from Wendy K.
"We met Ben Samimi when we requested to see a house that his office represented. As you may know, there's no shortage of Realtors wanting to represent you as you buy or sell real estate. We chose Ben for his earnest personality and his consistent willingness to perform his job to his best ability. Since then, we have successfully sold two homes and bought a new home (in 3+ months!) with his guidance and expertise. We have referred Ben without hesitation with very positive outcomes. In the future, we would most certainly work with Ben in all real estate dealings." - Bill & Wendy Kimura
Andrea & Michael E.
Ben was referred to us by a neighbor and we were very pleased with his level of professionalism, knowledge and dedication. It was a bonus that he lived in the community. He was extremely thorough and was in constant communication regarding the transaction. All of his referrals were top notch too. We highly recommend him!
Raymond & Barbara M.
Even though Ben is a friend, from the first time Ben stepped into our home as our real estate agent, he was always very professional and was always neatly dressed in a white dress shirt and coat. He made us feel important as a client, treated us with respect and professionalism, and never took us for granted because we are friends. He explained in general what had to be done to sell a house. Being our first time in selling a home, we had a lot of questions and he patiently answered every single one of them until we felt comfortable with taking the next step. It's like he read our minds when he brought pictures of homes listed in our neighborhood. He helped us compare the listed homes with ours to make sure our house was priced to sell and it did! Every step of the way he texted us with updates and what he needed from us. He promptly returned our text messages as if his iPhone was glued to his hand! I was surprised how Ben went out of his way to help us. My husband and I are retired and will be relocating out of state where our daughter lives. We are currently living with her until our new house is built. We were reluctant to ask Ben if he would let the cleaning service in and out when they were done. We knew he was very busy and we didn't want to impose. He made it seem like he lived next door for the numerous times and occasions he willingly had to be at the house. Not once did he say he couldnt make it, he was always there for us. We really appreciated his time. We had very poor results with finding a decent cleaning service, then the bulb lit, let's ask Ben! We were very relieved to know we could ask Ben for referrals as we had no idea who to call for some of the things we needed to get done at the house. He always gave us at least two and would get back to us if he had more. After awhile we found ourselves relying on Ben a lot, I guess because he never disappointed us. When he says he's going to do something, he does it! As I told Ben more than once, it was such a pleasant experience selling our home and it was because of him. We were so relaxed and comfortable throughout the process knowing we were in good hands. Thank you so much Ben!
This was my first time ever selling a house, so I really didn't know what to expect. From my first call to Ben, until even after my house closed, Ben was professional and helpful with any questions I had. I was always comfortable with each stage in the process due to Ben's excellent communication skills. He explained to me all of the various aspects that needed to be done when selling a house, and always had everything prepared and ready to go when it needed to be. I couldn't be happier with the result, ended up getting over asking for my house, and very smooth escrow process, and no problems! I will definitely use Ben for any future real estate transactions and will be referring him to my friends and family, that's how good he was!
Previous review from Daniel S.
When I decided that it was time to purchase my first property, I knew I needed a real estate agent that would have my back, and be very responsible and knowledgable. I can say, without any hesitation, that Ben has met and exceeded all of my expectations. As I soon realized in this market, properties are going fast, and Ben was on the ball. He would immediately call me when he saw a newly listed property matched what I was looking for. Additionally, he was always available at an instant. I have contacted him sometimes in the very early morning, up to the midnight hour, and I always get him on the phone. When I did get an offer accepted on a property, Ben covered me on all bases. Buying a house, especially for a first time home buyer, is a very serious event in a persons life, and I can honestly say that working with Ben, I was always has a calm and stress-free demeanor because I knew by working with him that he knows what he is doing. Now as I sit here in my new house, writing this review, I want whoever is reading this to know that if you go with Ben Samimi, you too will share my experience, which is going through the huge process of purchasing a home, but it will be done in a way that you always feel comfortable and secure, and when Ben hands you your new keys after the close of escrow, as he did to me last week, you will realize you made the right decision going with Ben Samimi as your real estate agent.
Justin & Johanna A.
Ben has set the standard incredibly high for realtor expectations. Our experience working with him from initial introduction through close of escrow was everything every realtor/client relation should strive to be. His consummate professionalism and attention to detail is what enables his local expertise. His data-supported pricepoint projections were spot on. Additionally. he is involved in community development meetings, the local elementary school as well as many other touchpoints throughout Porter Ranch. Ben does not only sell your home, he sells the community. We became increasingly more comfortable going through the process since he was able to anticipate needs while remaining extremely responsive, transparent and dedicated - updating us at every turn while preparing us for the next. I think what ultimately sets him apart is his ability to consistently make you feel like you're his only client. I only go out of my way to write reviews if my experience was either extremely negative or above and beyond expectations. We are not only happy with our decision to work with Ben, but are sincerely grateful that we had the opportunity to work with Ben. Thank you!
Ben Samimi is a great real estate agent. He made the process of selling our townhouse quick and painless...in fact we got a full price office the first day it was listed! I attribute much of this to Ben's knowledge of our community and his sales skills. Ben walked us through everything step-by-step so it was understandable and was our advocate the whole time. I will definitely go back to Ben if/when we sell our new house. I highly recumbent working with Ben Samimi!
Ben is the Best realtor! He will make you feel like you are his only client.Every question we had,Ben was quick with providing us with the answers we needed, and always made sure that our best interest were represented.He made the process of buying a home effortless.We wouldn`t use any other realtor to represent us.
Previous review from Theresa L.
WOW,where do I start.Ben is an amazing realtor.I had a great experience looking for and purchasing a home with Ben`s help .After a brief meeting to find out everything I wanted in a home,and the area I desired.He quickly made sure that I was given every home listed.He followed up with me daily in veiwing homes,so that I wouldn`t miss the opportunity to get the home of my dreams,which I found!! In addition,Ben was extremely helpful with all of the people working on my loan , with escrow, and all of the inspections and appointments necessary to close quick and easy.I would recommend Ben to every family and friend that I know!!
If you want to work with someone who is friendly, covers all the bases, is instantly available, always patient,and moves the transaction along as soon as an action is required, then you want Ben. This is the second property we have worked on with Ben as the buyer's agent and I would recommend him completely. Even though I thought I knew what kind of property we were looking for, he made several suggestions and in the end we changed focus from a single story fixer house to a single story condo in good condition. Ben is thoughtful and listens to your needs and concerns. He will show homes at a moment's notice and provide comps when you meet. In a rapidly moving market, you need someone like Ben who has a sense of urgency and provides creative options. Don't ask him a question unless you want him to immediately make calls, find the answers, and call you back. We had a very short escrow and were in contact with Ben almost daily. You have the feeling of being his only and very important customer even though he has more than just us. Whether you are buying or selling, you cannot do better than to be represented by Ben!! It was a pleasure being able to work with him again.
Previous review from Bobbi V.
Ben is the most responsive, pro-active, thorough agent I have worked with. He was patient and available to show us whatever property we were interested in. We had been looking off and on for 18 months and he was always willing. We made offers on two other properties that went through many negotiations before finally being successful with the third property. He came up with suggestions for properties that fit our requirements. There was never a moment that I did not know where we stood in the offer and closing process. He answered all my questions and searched out the answers if he didn't have them. He provided a summary of the steps in the closing process and the dates by which we needed to complete them. He arranged for the home inspection and we found the inspector he chose to be thorough and knowledgeable. Everything was smooth due to Ben's diligence and we closed 5 days earlier than the original plan. Whether selling or buying, I would recommend Ben without reservation.
Through each step in the buying process as my husband and I purchased our first home, Ben was very helpful, thorough, and professional in every matter. He treats his clients like how he would treat his own family which is very genuine in that nature that ensures you that you will be in good hands. I would highly recommend him to any one seeking a Realtor that is attentive and caring to ones needs.
Home buyer in Bell Canyon
My husband and I just finished purchasing our second home with Ben. We were looking for a forever home so this was not an easy or quick decision - we crossed several homes off our list before finding the one. We were pretty set on the area that we wanted to live in so it could have been months before the right property showed up on the market. With that being said, Ben was very patient with us and understood it may take a while. He made the process of this huge decision very easy for us and we never felt hurried or under pressure to make up our minds. He showed up to every meeting and house appointment on time. We couldnt recommend him enough - If you are looking for a hands on, knowledgeable and kind Realtor who will make you feel secure throughout the stressful home buying transaction process, Ben is your guy! With Ben you will get exclusive and undivided attention. He is always available and extremely quick to respond to any questions and concerns, never too busy or in a hurry. He spends as much time with you as you need to discuss an issue or to make a decision. We eventually ended up with a beautiful house, and Ben's knowledge and expertise during escrow ended up saving us even more money during the negotiation process. Through this process, it easily showed that Ben has his clients interest as his main priority, and I will continue to recommend him to all of my friends and family who are looking to purchase a home.
Townhome buyer in Tarzana
As a first time home owner, Ben was the PERFECT real estate agent. He patiently answered all of our questions, explained everything in a manner that was easy to understand, and went well above and beyond tending to our every need. If you have a question, you can rest assured that Ben will answer a text with lightening speed. My wife and I both have very busy schedules, and Ben did everything in his power to accommodate us - I.E. meeting us at houses on the weekends, answering phone calls late at night, and even being at the house for inspections when we couldn't be. He also always knows someone who is great at their job and really economical (like cleaners, painters, etc.). Buying a home is never easy, but with Ben it really is. His demeanor keeps you calm, happy, and stress free. He really is there to represent you, and you never feel like he's got any other intentions. We are going to miss working with Ben so closely, and hope to keep in touch with him. Ben is a great real estate agent and an even better person. He deserves the highest recommendation possible. He helped us buy our first home, and I know he'll help us buy our next one as well.
Home seller in Northridge
Ben Samimi was recommended by a close and trusted friend, who is STILL a very close and trusted friend. Ben was an absolute professional in working to sell our rental house in Northridge. He kept us informed every step of the way with regular updates via phone, email, text and personal visits to our home. Ben was always available, what seemed to be 24/7. Ben assisted with connecting me to other professionals to paint and make some minor repairs in preparing the rental property for sale. He had a professional photographer take pictures and posted on the Internet. The house was sold within 10 days. We will use Ben when we sell our personal residence. Ben Samimi is an exceptional professional that I highly recommend, who I can now also call my friend.
Home buyer in Simi Valley
Ben was absolutely awesome! My wife and i were so new to the process and were so scared but Ben was so kind to sit down and walk us through the whole home sale process. He was there at anytime of the day or night to answer any question we had. We received daily updates on new home's so we were able to stay ahead of the curve and we were able to get the house of our dreams thanks to Ben. The time and dedication Ben showed was absolutely amazing. I know that we weren't his only clients but he made us feel like we were the whole process. As most people know communication is a key during a home buying process and Ben excelled in that field. Emails, text messages, phone calls; no matter what we were able to always speak with him. he replied to questions within minutes. Ben blew our mind with his professionalism and his knowledge. The best part of the whole process is we didn't just gain a real estate agent we gained a new friend. Thanks Ben for everything, we couldn't have done this without you!
Selling your house can be such a stressful and confusing time in your life so having an experienced agent to help guide you through the process is critical. Ben is the realtor you will want on your side! He is an outstanding agent that performed even better than our expectations starting from the first meeting. Ben did his homework before our meeting and researched comp's to give us advice on our listing price - it was exactly the number my husband and I had in our minds. Ben hired the best photographer, it made our renovations and pool just pop in pictures! The flyers and virtual tour were outstanding! Ben checked every website to be sure our house was listed and provided weekly reports on hits, which showed me he is thorough and diligent. Ben is extremely hard working agent! He starts his day bright and early, responded to our emails/texts/calls promptly, and even sent messages late at night. It's clear to us that he puts in many hours to be the top notch agent and it shows in his performance. He had many Open Houses, which helped us get two offers on our house! We had to move out of state before we sold our house, Ben helped us with random things like turning my A/C on so the house would feel cool for the buyers coming to view our house, or even adding chlorine in our pool when the pool guy was on vacation. In other words, he goes above and beyond to help his clients in any way to help you sell your home. I highly recommend Ben Samimi as a Realtor for selling or buying your next home. He displays all of the strengths needed to be a successful agent, you won't be sorry if you hire him. I'm just sorry I left CA and he can't help us in the future! :-)

Selling a home is a life changing event and Ben Samimi is an exceptional realtor who guided us through the entire process and his transparency put us at ease each step of the way. His professionalism is unmatched as he is very responsive in addressing any concerns and exceeded all of our expectations. On our end, it was a very smooth process and it is a testament to how Ben works. He was always available by phone, text, or email. He even offered to help us move. He explained every step of the selling process to ensure that we understood what was being asked of us. He always provided adequate time for preparation of any open house, inspection, or appraisal. Furthermore, Ben was flexible with his time and accommodating with our busy schedules. Ben is a genuinely down to earth guy who pays attention to his clients and ensures their satisfaction. We highly recommend Ben to anyone who is selling their home.

Exceptional service and professionalism by Ben!! He was very sincere, and helpful in the process of selling our townhouse, and buying a single family residence. He spent hours on end, diligently answering our questions expeditiously, either in person, by phone, text message, or email. He provided objective data regarding how many homes have sold, how long they stayed on the market, and information on comps in the area. Ben made the process incredibly easy by having professional photographs taken and giving us staging tips during our open house. His hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off!! Our listing looked amazing, and put other townhouses in our community to shame. We immediately had a buyer as soon as the home was listed, who offered more than the listing price! He walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. He was also flexible with timing and availability when we requested to visit properties on the weekends, and weekdays as well. We would see anywhere from 5-7 homes in one day. With every single listing, he provided insight and his honest opinion of our chances in getting the home in this high demand market. This helped us make an informated decision as to whether to make an offer, or not. Of the 30+ homes that we saw, we only wrote 2 offers and the second one was accepted, due to Bens outstanding work. He knows how to make your offer competitive and that is a major factor when buying a home. In all, Ben is an excellent real estate agent and is someone I would definitely recommend to everyone without hesitation. He's a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. Words cannot express how grateful we are to have him as our real estate agent. We cannot thank him enough!!

Ben Samimi is beyond AMAZING! This was our first time purchasing a home and he made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He constantly followed up on every item and helped us stay on track until we closed escrow. We worked with him for about 4 months during which he showed us some great homes. He was very patient with us and didnt force us into buying a house that we didnt like. Furthermore, Ben is exceptionally knowledgeable and made himself available when we had any questions. He went the extra mile to get us the home we loved and we are extremely grateful for all the help he provided us.

I and my wife are completely happy with Ben. He stayed on top of everything in selling/buying our property. He works day and night, friendly, trustworthy... what else should I say? I will definitely recommend him, and I'll have him for myself when we move again.
Previous review from Yong K.
Ben is super nice guy, answers question anytime, day and night (especially since we were neighbors) I believe he is trustworthy, honest, and diligent. He uses internet/sns methode properly, so the property gets exposed more and quicker. I will definitely recommend him to anyone.
Home seller in Reseda
Ben has been an Amazing Realtor through out the purchase of a home and selling our home. We have bought and sold with him and wish we could take him with us for our current home purchase out of state. He is always professional and keeps you inform throughout the entire process. Its rare that you find a realtor that can deal with Two Buys and Sellers that have A type personalities and still find the happy medium between the two. What makes things even better about Ben is he never forgets important dates in your life like (Your Own Birthday) that you may have forgotten about due to all the paperwork and process with the sale of a Home. THANKS BEN. Whats most important about working with Ben is he treats you as a friend (The kind you can do business with) and always makes it a point to look out for your best interest and respond to all your questions in a timely manner. He is Knowledgable, trustworthy, dedicated and professional in all he says and does. I would recommend him to anyone and tell them they would be a fool not to work with him.
Previous review from Kenny B.
Ben really did an amazing job with my partner and me. Since we both share A type personalities Ben was able to work well with calming both of us down at the most stress fall times in the home buying processes and kept us up to date with every detail that was going on in the process. Ben was able to meet all our needs where previous agents weren't. Ben proved to us that he was knowledgeable of the area where we were purchasing and was able to locate a home for us that met both of our expectations. We really appreciate that Ben would always make time for us and promptly answered any question we had. The best part is that he stayed in constant contact with us even replying to emails right away that were sent either really early in the morning or late at night, which showed us we were always is priority. With out Ben we would not have been able to find a home in this market within 2 months of us first looking. We would definitely keep Ben as a realtor and would recommend him to anyone who is searching for a home. You can never go wrong with choosing Ben.

A year back we hired Ben as our agent for renting out our townhouse in Porter Ranch. This year we decided to sell it so we hired him again as our listing agent. Because we have already relocated, we couldn't be on-site during the whole selling process. Ben took care of everything including working with painting company, electrician, floor tile repair contractor, Dish Network retailer (for removing dish receiver). He even ran to stores to buy parts and materials for repairs. The whole process is very smooth and we are very happy with having Ben as our agent!
Previous review from Yang X.
We are very pleased to hire Ben as our leasing agent. The role of the leasing agent is to advertise and show our property to prospective tenants and to perform a background check.We have to say Ben is amazing! He is always on time and very patient and professional. He puts a lot of effort into advertising our property on many websites. The description of the property is very accurate.He is always available to us by phone or email at any time when we have any questions or concerns. He worked so hard to ensure we have wonderful tenants. He made the rental process very straightforward. He took time and effort to go over every item of the lease with us and tenant. He is a diligent,knowledgeable and honest person.We would highly recommend Ben to anyone who wants to lease or sell their property. Thank you Ben!

Previous review from Christina G.
Ben was very knowledgeable and responsive. We did run into one problem which I recommend everyone who is selling a home look into right away: get the appraisal done asap! Everything depends on this, including buying your next home, so don't delay getting the appraiser in.

Moving is never easy. Add to that a long distance relocation, plus a tight time frame and your in for a wild ride. I met Ben in our neighborhood a few years back and knew immediately should we ever decide to sale, he would be our first and only choice. I'm happy to say we made a great call in working with Ben. Very knowledgeable, always well prepared, almost instant responses to questions via email and conviently text. Even though miles away, I never felt that I was left wanting or asking for status or updates. I honestly cannot imagine how complex and incredibly stressful the sale would have been without Ben's presence, help and his willingness to go out of his way to assist. Most importantly he cared about our happiness and how he could take whatever possible off our plate. Thank you Ben we couldn't have done it without you!
Townhome buyer in Northridge
Ben helped us purchase our home and it was a very pleasant experience. He listened to our wants and needs and found us what we were looking for. He was patient as we made decisions and never pressured us into anything. He is very knowledgeable about the market and the homebuying process. He was quick to respond to any question or request. Most importantly, he is trustworthy and I would not hesitate to work with him again or recommend him to friends and family.
Townhome buyer in Sylmar
IT WAS A BLESSING HAVING BEN SAMIMI REPRESENTING MY HUSBAND AND I. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT THE LORD PUT HIM IN OUR PATH. BEN WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEBABLE, VERY PROFESSIONAL, VERY DEDICATED, HE WAS PROMT TO RESPOND. HE WAS ALWAYS AVAILABLE, MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE VERY LITTLE COMPUTER SKILLS AND BEN WAS VERY PATIENT TO GUIDE US STEP BY STEP THROUHG ALL THE PAPER WORK.. I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT BEN IS A BLESSING, IF WE HAD TO DO THIS ALL OVER AGAIN I WOULD NOT HESSITATE I WOULD HAVE BEN SAMIMI REPRESENT US AGAIN... YO SE EN MI CORAZON QUE BEN SAMIMI FUEN UN ANGEL QUE EL SENOR CRUZO EN NUESTRO CAMINO PARA NUEATRA REPRESENTACION, ES UN HOMBRE CON BASTANTE PROFESIONALISMO, CONOCIMIENTO, DEDICACION, RESPONSABLE Y DEFINITIVAMENTE SABE COMO TRATAR AL SER HUMANO, BEN NOS HIZO SENTIR A MI ESPOSO Y AMI COMO SI FUERAMOS UN MIEMBRO DE LA FAMILIA. BEN SAMIMI ES UNA BENDICION.
We could not ask for a better buyer's agent than Ben. As novice home buyers, they process was daunting for us, but Ben guided us through patiently and helped us with every step. We always felt that he had our best interests at heart, and his easy going demeanor made him a pleasure to work with. Yet, when the time came to negotiate for the house we wanted, he was aggressive about advocating for us. We were really lucky to work with an expert like Ben. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him highly to anyone looking for a home in the area.

Home buyer in Chatsworth
If you're not working with Ben then you are not witnessing the best possible home buying experience one can have. Ben was not only our fearless diligent agent but, through the process, became a trusted friend and a loyal guide. As we know, home buying is a stressful process, but Ben was a great partner! He was always available anytime we needed him. He connected us to all the relevant parties needed to get the process in order. He always made us feel like we were his only client with the amount of attention and professionalism he brought. He even helped us though some massive indecisiveness we experienced along the way by keeping us on track and reminding us of what we had stated our priorities were from the beginning! He kept us grounded which could be a difficult task to do with so many variables that go into this process. He did a great job speaking candidly and providing his feedback, with the utmost respect. I never had to follow up with Ben, he constantly kept us updated along the way, informed us of what to expect at each phase and led us through it smoothly. As a first time homebuyer, that was comforting to experience. My wife and I have now found our realtor for life with Ben and couldn't be happier with that decision! We felt like a team with him!
Condo buyer in Van Nuys
My wife and I could not be more pleased with our experience with Ben as our Agent. As a first-time buyer, we had so many questions about the process, the timing, responsibilities, cost, zones, etc. Ben addressed all of our concerns, with detailed and informed answers. Due to our inability to set firm schedules to visit properties, Ben was very flexible and where needed engaged his business partner to assist in showing us properties. When we found the property that we both agreed on, we wanted to ensure that it would qualify for traditional financing (as this was our preferred financing method). Ben did everything to ensure that the property would qualify before we submitted an offer, and after the offer was submitted to counter-offer to close, Ben was on top of things. We never felt like Ben was too busy for us, and always found answers. Actually at one point I asked my wife, do you think Ben has time for any of his other clients? as we were talking, emailing, etc. Being a first-time buyer is stressful and Ben made the process so smooth . we could not be more pleased. He was extremely pro-active, as an example, in the middle of closing my wife and I had a trip to Hawaii to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We considered cancelling our trip because it was at such a critical time, but knowing that our transaction was in Ben's capable hands we went and were so happy we did so, as Ben had everything under control. Ben is very organized and proactive. Ben is an excellent negotiator and because of his attention to detail, we were able to increase the value of our purchase far more than we expected. Ben acted as the liaison with our Bankers, Escrow Company, and the Management Company. Ben ensured that we did not fall behind on our due dates, and prompted us if we needed to follow-up with any of the key deliverables, in a professional manner. Areas for improvement, none! When we have to buy our next property Ben will be the person that we go to. Zip has a real asset in Ben, and we were so lucky to have him help us navigate this tremendous investment! Thanks Ben!

Ben Samimi helped to sell my old home very smoothly and I recently moved into my new home a week ago. Although there are still lots of boxes needed to be unpacked and things needed to be organized, I have to say that again Ben had helped me throughout the purchasing process of the new home, which made me feel at ease. He is a very thorough and detailed person. He stayed on top of everything and kept everyone including sales office, escrow and lender posted of the progress. Even when thing was delayed beyond his control, Ben would communicate to everyone and reach out to others to resolve the issue. He went Above and Beyond with his service. Ben is the best realtor I ever have! If you are looking to buy a home or sell your home, contact Ben and you will be very pleased with his service.
Previous review from Lisa N.
During the time as a seller of my home, Ben Samimi has been more than helpful, professional, and thorough with his work as a realtor. Within 3 weeks my home was sold with ease and comfort knowing that I was in good hands with Ben. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone looking for a realtor who is knowledgable and trustworthy in the real estate business. I thank Ben for the job well done!
Townhome seller in Northridge
Ben was very helpful in getting our unit ready for sale. He is a diligent salesperson, holding an open house at our unit almost every week until we received a firm offer. Since we live in Hawaii, most of the transactions were long distance but Ben continuously communicated with us on what was going on in a timely manner, set us up with docu-sign, and got us a wonderful escrow company to work with.. We are very appreciative that he went "beyond the call" to help us sell our house!
Home seller in Northridge
My family was very fortunate to have met Ben even before hiring him as our agent. We were neighbors and even before we were contemplating on selling our home, you can tell Ben was honest, friendly, caring, and overall a great family man. It was a no brainer to hire Ben as our agent when the time came to sell our house. I have very high standards when hiring someone to provide a service. I didn't hire Ben just cause he was our neighbor, but i hired him because he carried himself with honesty and integrity. In the business of real estate, those two characteristics are the most important elements, cause everything else will follow to finalize your transaction. From the beginning, he told me clearly how much I was going to make on selling my home and never pressured me to make decisions. He was prompt with every question I threw at him, available 24-7, always on time, made sure the buyers and escrow were moving along with the docs, and even went above and beyond his duties by helping us clean our home and helping us locate a rental. This guy is the real deal, he is driven to get results and keeps his promises. Would I hire him again to sell or buy another home, in a heart beat.

Ben exceeded all my expectations in selling our property. It was a difficult situation but he was professional, trustworthy and on top of every detail. I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling your property. It was a pleasure to do business with Ben Samimi.

Home buyer in Burbank
Ben was there every step of the way when we purchased our home....we had many questions being a first time buyer as a couple, and he was very informative and guided us all the way. Very honest and real, and always was there for us when we needed him. We recommend him for everyone who needs a perfect place to live.
As a first-time seller, there was so much I didn't know about how to navigate a successful sale. Mr. Samimi's professionalism and knowledge of the industry was indispensable to me as we approached each decision that was required along the way. His personal investment in addressing my concerns and protecting my interests assured me that I had indeed chosen the right agent to represent me. In fact, his inter-personal skills were instrumental in expertly guiding both parties through the process to everyone's satisfaction. I have the highest respect for Ben, both personally and professionally. He went the extra mile for me - I'm sure he'll go the extra mile for you. He has my utmost confidence and my highest recommendation." - Robin Ferguson
I have been on the "hunt," so to speak, for a new residence. Ben has taken me out to see multiple properties. He's been the consummate professional and ever so patient. I'm probably the pickiest person around, yet he doesn't pressure me into buying. He's young yet wise and mature beyond his years. He's confident and knows his business quite well. Go with a WINNER.

ben helped us in the most patient and professional way. Ask him anything and he is happy to explain to you in detail about whatever real estate lingo you don't get haha.. He was sufficient and always organized and punctual. Can't wait to call him again to find the next piece of real estate ;) thanks ben you're awes!!
Home buyer in Winnetka
I really loved working with Ben. I would recommend him without hesitation. As a first-time buyer, I was worried about all of the steps that go into such a major decision. Ben was very patient, encouraging and supportive thru the entire process. So much, that it turned out to be a fun experience, rather than a stressful one. We looked at a lot of properties until finding the right one, but there was never any pressure from Ben to go with something we had already seen. He wanted me to be truly happy with the decision I made. And I am :) Ben also has very good people that he works with, for financing, insurance, and the home inspection. I would recommend using those guys too! The only bad thing about the actual purchase of my house is that I don't get to see or talk to Ben as much, but I know we will stay in touch.
