HEY,
LET’S MAKE
YOUR NEXT MOVE
AN AWESOME
ONE.

Considering a move?

Your home buying & selling experience is a big deal.
Instead of stressing about details, as my client, you’ll spend your energy on the fun, exciting stuff, like deciding where your next adventure begins. I gladly take care of the complex, tricky, and tedious parts of buying or selling your home to make it easy, simple, understandable –and even a wee bit of fun for you!

Are you dreaming of buying a home?

When all of your daydreams are filled with visions of buying a home, it’s a great time to start preparing. Whether you want to buy in 30 days or 30 months, I’ll help you find your home at your pace.

Considering selling your house?

It’s such a great time to sell! Why sell with me? Because my goal is to hand you as big of a check as possible at closing. This means hard work, great marketing, negotiations and a solid understanding of the market.

Why work with Ben?

Accessible & responsive
Call me, I’m responsive. We’ll be in communication at every turn. I mean really, can we be talking too much? Nope. Can’t.
Heart of a teacher
It’s important that you are armed with all of the knowledge possible when making big decisions. My past experience as a teacher has prepared me to educate my clients about the buying and selling process, market updates, Omaha area neighborhoods and everything in between.
Your house at your pace
I’ve heard that I have the patience of a tree. I’m comfortable with your preferred pace. I’m patient with your decisions and patient with your questions. All your questions are good questions. I do my best to answer the usual questions up front, but I encourage my clients to ask whatever comes to mind.
Thorough with your best interest in mind
When you see your dream house, you may miss some important deficiencies and end up with a lemon. My laser-focused eyes are working overtime to make sure you get what you want and avoid potential problems.
Market insights
Buyers: I negotiate your deal to get your favorite house, for the best price. The market is competitive for buyers. I’ve been able to win bidding wars without having the highest bid. It’s all about knowing what sellers want.
Sellers:
I know what buyers want. I’ll market your home to make it the most desirable for those buyers and negotiate the deal to get as much as possible into your closing check. You’ll hug me later.
A super team
I work with one of the best Realtors in Omaha, Aubrey Hess. We’ve helped hundreds of clients buy and sell homes together. We’ve also just added another awesome agent to our team, Jamie Afanasiev. When you hire me, you work with me, but you also get triple the expertise of an efficient team.
STATS:
Don’t be afraid to ask potential Realtors about their stats. These are just a few of my numbers to show you how I’ve been performing. (Updated Nov. 2016)
Average home listing days on market
Average list price vs. sales price
  • Omaha metro average list price vs. sale price 98% 98%
  • My average list price vs. sale price 100.5% 100.5%

Who do I like to work with?

I only have 990 waking minutes each day to do all the things I love. I get to spend two-thirds of that time helping the coolest-of-the-cool, become-friends-for-life type of people buy and sell their homes. I enjoy working with people of all experience levels and backgrounds. I connect most with inquisitive, new home buyers or sellers that are eager for help, curious about the process, and have lots of questions (remember… heart of a teacher!) I love to help my clients make educated decisions.

why work with ben smail?
We didn’t know where to start, what to do, or even really what to look for in a house. Ben sat with us and went through the entire process with us before we even committed to looking for houses. When we left his office that day, we felt empowered and knew we had the right agent immediately. –Cassidy S.
