I grew up in Sun Valley, Idaho (Hailey actually) and have been privileged to live in many different places around the world since then. I spent ten years in France, three years in Scotland, and fifteen years in Israel. Now, after travelling the world for twenty-five years, I’m thrilled to finally be back in the beautiful state of Idaho.
Prior to my career in real estate, I worked as an Old Testament professor/scholar and published articles and books on a variety of topics related to the Hebrew language, ancient Near Eastern history, and historical geography. My background in education taught me how to communicate clearly, conduct thorough independent research, find creative solutions, and pay close attention to detail. All these skills, I believe, are extremely helpful in the real estate industry.
I love working with people, and as a real estate agent I am committed to clear and thorough communication with my clients, listening to their needs, working with precision and professional integrity, and ultimately make the buying and selling process an enjoyable experience.

We were first time home buyers and new to the area. We wanted someone we could trust, who would be available every step of the way, and was an expert realtor in the Treasure Valley. If these are qualities you value in a realtor, Benj is your guy! He went above and beyond to ensure the home buying process was smooth, enjoyable, and everything we had hoped it would be. In the end we got a beautiful home in our price point in an INSANE market. Benj is a trustworthy, responsive, and knowledgeable realtor who we would recommend to our friends and family searching for a home. ~ M. & S. Narlock (June 2021)
Benj was a huge blessing in our first-time home-buying experience. He walked us through the process, arranged to see over 20 houses with us throughout the whole Treasure Valley, offered guidance and insight in each offer that we made in a super competitive market. He was really available, patient, kind and gave us honest feedback about the properties we saw. He was never pushy or tried to convince us to like a home that we didn't. He kept our list of must/nice to haves in mind and even went to a few open houses for us while we were on FaceTime. We are so grateful that he was our Realtor and highly recommend him! ~Alice & Trevor Wojtkiewicz (July 2021)
Benj was nothing but a pleasure to work with. We were living in another state when he helped us get our home and he went and checked out so many houses for us. He is very knowledgeable of the business and the area and if we ever decide to move we won’t even consider anyone else, thanks Benj! ~Joey & Cassie Cordova (July 2021)
