Ben Latimer

Ben commenced his real estate career in 2003 with an agency based in Mosman, Sydney and continued his success in the industry when he relocated to northwest NSW.

Before moving to the Gold Coast in 2014, Ben owned and managed a large agricultural holding for over a decade, which provided him with valuable hands-on knowledge of how to run a multi-million dollar enterprise.

In that time, Ben doubled the productivity of the business and helped to negotiate the successful sale of its two large cattle properties in 2013.

His superior negotiation and communication skills along with his experience in property management, residential and rural sales, livestock and grain marketing, have seen Ben achieve great results with LJ Hooker Southport.

I have bought and sold a number of properties over the years and I have never come across a more genuine, hardworking, honest and professional sales person as Ben. I was very impressed by his communication style, prompt feedback and honesty. Most importantly Ben was able to negotiate a sale price that I was more than happy with. Thank you Ben, you've made what can be a quite stressful time in to a very pleasant and smooth experience.

Dealing with Ben Latimer was professional and stress free. Ben worked quickly and with courtesy at all times to achieve an excellent result for me as a purchaser.

Penelope Mullen

I can honestly say - if you want an agent that will work with you, then go above and beyond for you, Ben is the agent to have. There was nothing Ben would not do to facilitate a smooth purchase. You can only truly judge a person when things are not going quite right, that is when having the right person is worth the most. Ben was definitely the right person, I was very fortunate to have him.

Bobo Alireza

Ben is a down to earth person and very easy to communicate with. He is also very supportive over this stressful period when selling your house. He also isn't jaded by the real estate industry as his background is in farming. I would highly recommend him!

Meah Robertson

One thing we always thought was important in the selling process is the agent needs to be genuine and likeable, because if we think they are genuine and likeable then buyers will hopefully see the same in them. Ben has those qualities in spades. Ben stuck with us, importantly listening to our concerns and expectations, providing counsel when most needed. In the end, we sold our house for exactly what we wanted, and that was down to the relationship he built and fostered during the sales process. I am pretty sure the buyers of our house would give a similar appraisal.

Colin and Rebel - Gold Coast

Handled in a very professional and ethical manner. sold very quickly. less than a week

Wayne Dawson - Gold Coast

Ben is the genuine deal. Honest, considerate, does what he says and when he says and always follows up. My sale was on not an easy one and Ben excelled under trying circumstances to achieve a successful result for me and the buyer. He achieved a fantastic outcome for all and I believe this was because he kept in contact at all times so there was no waiting & wondering or assuming on either side. Over the years I have dealt with many agents and Ben surpasses all by far LJ Hooker Southport seem to be a genuine agency who try to do the best by their clients and I like that they appear to be looking for ways to constantly improve their business I have no hesitation in recommending Ben Latimer as an agent to sell your property. If you require someone who is genuine, honest, open and friendly and who will follow through on what he says then go no further.

Lois Peters - Benowa Waters

I was very impressed with Ben Latimer's performance in facilitating the sale of my Gold Coast property, which was finalised on Friday 20-5-16. Throughout the sale process Ben remained approachable, friendly, polite an knowledgeable. I was especially impressed with his action in persuading the buyers to increase their initial offer, to a price which was mutually acceptable. I accepted Ben’s advice in regard to my initial listing price, and the Sale Contract was signed within c 2 weeks of the property being put on the market. In summary I would have no hesitation in highly recommend Ben Latimer to anyone contemplating entering the Real Estate market.

I am a member of the Benowa Bowls Club and we tend to support those companies who advertise through us. This was the main reason I chose L.J. Hooker and Ben. It proved to be a good choice and Ben did an excellent job.

Ian Astbury - Southport

I've already done this. He's fantastic. from Vivienne Le Cerf. Bowraville

Vivienne Le Cerf - Bowraville

I just wanted to thank you for the excellent and professional job you did in the recent sale of our property. From the outset you showed huge enthusiasm and professionalism, while still infusing the entire transaction with warmth and a "personal" approach. You kept me informed of every detail at every step, and were always scrupulously honest and candid about developments and changes in the market. I wish all real estate agents demonstrated the honesty, charm and scrupulousness that you consistently have shown. It was an absolute pleasure working with you, and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone contemplating the sale or purchase of property.

Vivienne Le Cerf

Ben Latimer was always available to speak to & always tried to do the right thing by us. He was a pleasure to deal with & we would definitely use him again if the need arose.
