Ben Komro strives to create happy and confident homebuyers.
Ben Komro’s favorite thing about working in local real estate is also one of the simplest parts of the business – he just likes helping people.
“Seeing the smile on someone’s face when they purchase a new property is definitely priceless. Some transactions may not be as easy as others, but no matter what, the smile at the end makes everything worthwhile.”
“A couple of years ago,” he remembers, “I worked with the sweetest lady who was selling her home of 50+ years. She built the home with her late husband and they raised their children in it. She had so many memories in that home ... it wasn’t easy for her to sell. During the entire process she made me feel as if I was part of her family, and on the day of closing she wouldn’t let me leave without taking a photo with her in front of the sold sign.”
Days like this are why Ben is passionate about selling houses and other property throughout the Chippewa Valley. Working with RE/MAX Real Estate Group, he usually covers properties within 75 minutes of Eau Claire, but will travel further when needed. He works with local buyers and sellers on all kinds of property. He can help people find any kind of home – from their first to their third – but he also specializes in vacant land for homebuilding and recreation, as well as commercial real estate for either purchase or lease.
An Eau Claire native familiar with the local landscape, Ben says the current real estate market has slowed somewhat, as it always does as winter sets in. “If you are still looking at buying into the winter months, there can be great potential for negotiating a deal,” he advises.
Ben believes the Chippewa Valley is a great place to buy a home because of the wide selection of styles, sizes, and prices, and because of the area’s reasonable cost of living. But that’s not all. “The Chippewa Valley has experienced a great deal of growth over the last five years,” he says. “Because of the arts and music festivals, great schools, and terrific health care, I believe our community will continue to grow and the demand for housing in the area will safeguard your investment for years to come.”
When working with his clients, Ben encourages lots of questions. He says there’s really is no such thing as a stupid question when buying a home. He believes clients who fully understand the process will end up the happiest with their final decisions. It all comes back to helping people. Ben loves getting to know his clients so he can better meet their needs, and he’s motivated to make their experience enjoyable.
