Circle of Excellence Sales Award for 2010


Ben is a 2010 RI Board of Realtors Circle of Excellence Sales Award Winner. He holds Real Estate licenses in RI & MA.  A well traveled Rhode Island native, Ben has seen many dimensions of the industry. He became a CT Licensed Real Estate Broker in 1986, a candidate for CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) and held securities licenses in order to trade Syndicated Real Estate Instruments. His real estate focus was institutional investment properties, interfacing with large REITs, transacting Apartment Communities, Shopping Centers and Office Complexes, mostly in New England. He left New Haven in 1995 to live in San Francisco CA, where his career shifted its focus to information technology . He returned to the East in 1999 to work on the executive team for Covansys a half billion dollar IT consultancy. Between 1999 and 2001 he rekindled his real estate career and began purchasing investment real estate from Joy Riley as a client of Westcott Properties. Between 1999 and 2007 Ben bought refit and sold more than 60 properties in Rhode Island, Florida, Puerto Rico and Costa Rica. Ben’s most notable work took place on Providence’s East Side where he painstakingly blended modern amenities into the rework of a number of architectural classics. After a short sabbatical and some time working in Europe he returned to RI. In 2009 Ben was invited to join The Westcott Team. He spent the rest of 2009 getting his real estate legs back and reconnecting with many of his old friends in the business. He is a quick study, a sound counselor and loyal confidant to his clients. In 2012 his intention is to scale up the traction he has gained by adding new clients and implementing innovative market driven applications able to navigate what can only be described as turbulence and uncertainty.
