Agent of the Month: Ben Gibson
Everyone meet Ben Gibson...
Our Agent of the Month is Ben Gibson who is the listing agent for the beautiful property on 222 South Jasmine in the Crestmoor area of Denver. Ben grew up in Colorado Springs with his parents and older brother and sister. After graduating from Air Academy High School and then University of Northern Colorado, Ben decided it was time to follow his passion for golf. He spent time in Florida and Ohio working at high end private clubs. After meeting Mike McGetrick in Florida, Ben had the opportunity to come home and help open Colorado Golf Club in Parker. While at Colorado Golf Club, Ben was fortunate to meet his amazing wife, Lauren. After leaving the golf industry, Ben decided it was time to go after another passion, real estate. He joined the VanWestenberg team in 2013, one of the most successful teams in the state. With a knack for helping clients buy and sell homes and his background in customer service, Ben has found his passion.

What are your thoughts on the current Colorado real estate market and where do you see it going in the upcoming months?
The real estate market is challenging for both buyers and sellers. Yes, even for sellers. Homes are getting contracts quickly, but that's only the beginning of the transaction. Sellers are facing buyers that paid top dollar, sometimes over asking price. Those same buyers expect the seller to give them a perfect house, which isn't always possible. On the buy side, people are having to make quick decisions about putting in offers. Many times that offer has to be above asking in order to compete. There is a more than normal "fall out" rate because of the current market conditions. This challenging market in the Denver area will continue until there is a huge increase in the number of homes for sale. Just like other commodities, when the supply is low, the demand is high. Throw in low interest rates and Denver's market will continue to see prices increase and homes going under contract quickly.
How do you find inspiration to grind and work hard?
Inspiration to work hard is never far from Ben's heart. Coming home to see his 2 and 4 year old girls gives him all the inspiration he needs.
Tell us about 222 S. Jasmine and what makes it so special?
As with all great real estate properties, it starts with location, location, location. Crestmoor is one of Denver's most sought after neighborhoods from the private pool to parks and restaurants right around the corner. The rod iron fence and gate gives the house great curb appeal and a distinctive look. Once inside you can see the quality everywhere you look. From the wine cellar to the home theater, this house has it all. Four en suites upstairs gives everyone their own retreat. The finished basement offers a spot for anyone wanting to entertain or just unwind with a theater and room for a pool table, along with a workout space. 222 South Jasmine is refined and elegant while still being having the warmth buyers are looking for.
Favorite place or neighborhood to buy and sell houses?
