Ben is a senior finance student at SDSU. Originally from San Jose, CA, Ben decided to move to San Diego in 2015 to complete community college and transfer to SDSU. He was originally introduced to and became interested in residential real estate through family friends but has since taken an interest in commercial real estate due to his fascination with business. Ben has taken three different roles in real estate internships over the last two years, including everything from acquisitions to marketing and more recently assisting a tenant rep broker at San Diego’s CBRE. His ultimate goal is to enter the development world but is equally interested in consulting companies in an advisory role. He has had his real estate license since August 2018 and is a member of NAIOP’s San Diego chapter. Ben grew up playing baseball, football, and hockey, and now enjoys staying active through beach volleyball, hiking, and camping. He is passionate about creativity, values the ability to question what we know, and is constantly striving to learn.
