Following more than two decades in the hospitality industry, Ben Myers brings a strong record of success and a wealth of customer service experience to his real estate career. In fact, he credits one of his early mentors for a bit of advice that has guided him throughout his professional life: Speaking about the restaurant industry where the food is usually the focus, a boss once reminded him that at the end of the day, “It’s a people business.” Bringing this same attitude to both his buyers and sellers, Ben knows that his success is based upon helping people achieve their goals.
Ben also understands that successful relationships require absolute integrity and the ability to listen and communicate effectively. From his years in the restaurant business, he also brings sharp negotiating skills, the confidence to thrive under pressure, and the ability to deliver results even under challenging circumstances. He is a loyal partner – consistently advocating on behalf of his clients and always striving to provide a seamless and stress-free experience.
Inspired to pursue a real estate career after his own very positive, home-buying experiences, Ben is determined to give his clients the same level of complete satisfaction that he enjoyed. He loves having the opportunity to work with so many different people and is honored to play a role in such a momentous event in his clients’ lives – whether that’s buying or selling their home.
When he’s not working, Ben is an accomplished cook and baker, an avid reader, and a proud member of the Scottish Terrier Club of Chicago. After having lived in various Chicago neighborhoods from Andersonville to Uptown and Edgewater, he and his husband recently moved into a new home in Skokie where he is happily applying his expertise and passion for landscape and interior design.
