Real Estate Professional
Ben Rego has been entrenched in the real estate industry ever since he was a child, with both grandfathers and parents having successful careers in the business. In his younger years, Ben spent countless summer holidays learning the nuances of the different areas of the business and ultimately had his ambitious mindset on what he wanted to do with his life from a very young age.
Ben graduated with honors from James Madison University in May of 2011, as an honorary member of the 2011 Class of the Sigma Iota Rho Honor Society for International Studies. Subsequently, he moved to Boston where he worked for four years with the Gibson Sotheby's International Realty's Marketing Team as their International Client Associate. After gaining invaluable experience in the role and having also spent time assisting some of the top famed brokers nationwide from Beth Dickerson, George Ballantyne and Julie Harrison, Ben moved back to Bermuda. He took over the position of Marketing Coordinator at Rego Sotheby's International Realty while also being a licensed agent. Ben held this position for 18 months and revolutionized the firm's online presence, marketing philosophy, and even guided the company through the launch of multiple new websites.
While having his license on the island for years prior to moving home, Ben officially transitioned into the sales department thereafter and has thrived ever since by specializing in what he calls ‘Patience, Positivity, Persistence’. More recently in 2021, he was promoted to the Sales Agent Manager of the team after his many years of exceptional commitment to the company and noteworthy achievements across the industry. Ben has won awards such as Rego Sotheby’s International Realty’s Top Selling Agent, Top Rental Agent, Top Listing Agent, and Top Gross Commissioned Agent in the consecutive years of 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021. He has also earned the honour as being voted by the public of Bermuda as the ‘Best Realtor’ in 2021 as well as again in 2022 in the ‘Best of Bermuda Awards'. Ben uses highly organized client tracking methods, timely responsiveness and attentiveness during communication, cutting-edge marketing tactics, broad reach networking, and prompt negotiating skills, which are all at the core of his business. It is, however, the close relationships that he has made and grown with throughout the years that make getting up for work every day a passionately exciting journey toward helping his clients achieve their real estate goals.
Ben personifies a cutting-edge professional, displaying wide-ranging expertise in sales processes and tactics. From guiding first-time homebuyers to a successful Closing to having an in-depth knowledge of the evolving luxury sector of the market in Tucker's Town and beyond, Ben has represented sales at all price points to properties listed upwards of over $10 Million. In 2021, he also co-launched the island’s first and only Real Estate Podcast, known as ‘Keys to the Rock’. This monthly program interviews other key players in the various businesses that impact real estate, and the show can be seen on a variety of platforms and adds further valuable video content, information to the public, and added exposure for Ben’s listings. Ultimately, it is his honest, personable manner and energetic big city experience that keeps Ben as passionate and motivated as ever, striving to always be innovative and constantly available at any time for his clients and their real estate goals.
