Ben Lovatt of Re/Max Hallmark Chay Realty

Ben Lovatt Realtor Barrie
I started working in real estate when I was 23 years old. I was newly graduated from University with a Bachelor of Commerce Degree, with an enthusiasm to get into the world and make my mark. My mom, Christine, had started working in real estate when I left for University. It was her who mentioned I should consider giving it a try, at least while I was looking for a job.
 I began the online courses during my last semester of school and soon after I was licensed to assist in buying and selling homes in Ontario. I didn’t have a home, had never owned one nor did I know many people who did…but that didn’t bother me.
I was not worried about my ability to learn the ins and outs of the marketplace.I knew I had patience & the motivation to help people find the perfect place to lay down their roots.
I have now been in the real estate market for a number of years, working with incredible Re/Max agents & making sure I give all of my clients my best. I’ve worked with first time buyers (my favourites), families upgrading to larger homes, families downsizing, and of course investors looking for a sweet opportunity. I’ve worked as far north as Sunridge, south to Hamilton, and in all in between. Barrie is my home, however, and I know & enjoy working in this area the best.
 I don’t ever want to be thought of as a “typical” real estate agent. I take pride in being myself. When you choose to work with me you get my full attention. I have no secretaries or assistants. You will deal with me directly from day one and on…because once we have done business together you’re part of the team for life!
I can’t wait to get you home!

Testimonials

…Ben made the whole process-from searching to purchasing- easy…

When we began our search for our first home, my Wife and I both had very different ideas of what our "perfect home" should include. Ben took the most important features from each of our lists and found the perfect home! He made the whole process-from searching to purchasing- easy. We never once felt overwhelmed working with Ben. I recommend him highly to anyone who is looking to buy or sell!

…Ben found us a home with ALL of our must-have’s…

My Husband and I contacted Ben when we were ready to purchase our first home. Both he and I were excited and nervous to make such a large purchase, but Ben explained the whole process to us every step of the way. He was always ready to answer any of our questions and gave us all the information we needed regarding each and every property we saw. He took his time to explain the pro's and con's of each listing as they related to us, and was able to find us a home that hit every single mark on our list of "Must-Have's". Thank you, Ben!

…Ben is an absolute pleasure to do business with…

Ben took extensive time in guiding us through the entire process of buying real estate, as first time home buyers our knowledge of the process was minimal. Ben offered extensive support in finding proper banking and the right lawyers. He provided professional knowledge of the real estate market, fast and accurate information about the most recent listings, and he also gave his own honest advice.

We felt very comfortable trusting Bens opinion and recommendations. He gave us adequate time to process information without pressing. He took the initiative to show us different areas and possibilities. We were originally looking for our home in a particular neighbourhood that had very limited listings, but Ben was able to show us a neighbourhood that we weren't familiar with, which evidently worked out better for us. I love my house and the neighbourhood we reside in, it is approaching a year since we bought. Ben still keeps in touch frequently. He continues to update me on current pricing within real estate in our area.

From the onset he was personable, professional, knowledgable and an absolute pleasure to do business with, on top of everything our asking price was achieved. I definitely would not hesitate to recommend Ben for the sale of our property, and will absolutely be using him for the sale of my next.

Thank you Ben for the amazing real estate experience!

…I’ve never once felt like my questions have been too novice or too frequent…

Just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for your patience and persistence. Buying a home for the first time can be a little daunting, even more so when you are looking for a place to live in as well as an investment to make a monthly return on. I appreciate the time you've spent explaining the process and the foresight you've been able to provide. I also appreciate you going the extra mile and digging up information that would help with the investment side  of the transaction. I've never once felt like my questions have been too novice or too frequent. You've been a pleasure to work with.

…We have recommended Ben to many first time home buyers, and will continue to do so…

 We had a great first time home buying experience with Ben! My husband and I had given Ben a price point, as well as a few things that we would like in our first home. He explained the home buying process to us, and made it very stress free. Ben showed us 3 homes. We fell in love with one of them, and had the papers signed, sealed and delivered one week later! Ben has continued to make sure that we are comfortable in our home. He provided us with utility insurance, as well as several thoughtful timmies cards in the mail. It has been 2 years since we bought our dream home, and Ben is still checking in on us! We have recommended Ben to many first time home buyers, and will continue to do so!

…Ben consistently provided us with sound advice…

We made the decision to start looking for a new home right after our wedding, which happened to be in the middle of the real estate boom of 2016/2017. Ben consistently provided us with sound advice when screening ads, visiting homes, and preparing offers in a hugely competitive market. We could not have navigated such a complicated time without his unconditional support! We would highly recommend him to any new buyers/sellers for his clear, concise, and thorough service. Thank-you Ben!

…Ben was nothing but professional, helpful, open minded & very easy to work with…

I purchased my first home with Ben four years ago and he was nothing but professional, helpful, open minded, very easy to work/communicate with. I sold that house with Ben a little over two years later and the house was only on the market for a week. I proceeded to purchase another house using Ben and again nothing but flawless service on his part. I quickly renovated and sold this house earlier this year and again the house barely lasted a day on the market. I would and do recommend working with Ben. I look forward to working with him again on my next real estate endeavour.
