“We were purchasing our first home and needed to find a good agent. At first we started out with one that turned out not to be a good fit for us, then we found Ben. Throughout the looking process Ben was excellent. He met us on weekends and was very patient in our search. It turned out the first house that he showed us we wanted to put an offer in on. This house turned out to be a short sale. We were informed that the short sale process was a very slow one and that proved true. 6 months later and we finally got the house. I truly believe it wouldn’t have happened without Ben’s knowledge and expertise. He gave us weekly updates, was in constant communication, and did his very best to expedite the process. Ben is a remarkable real estate agent that puts his clients best interest first. Home buying is stressful so it's important to find a hardworking, honest, and reliable agent which is what you’ll find in Ben.” Realtors our greatest assets are happy clients!

Jeff & Jessica

““I have bought and sold over 25 properties in the past 40 years. Ben is the best agent I have dealt with in all those years. He has the ability to understand very quickly what you are looking for and wastes very little time in identifying the properties that will be of interest. Respectful to all parties in the buy/sell process. Very impressive young man!”



“Ben impressed us from the moment we met him at our first house viewing. He walks into each house and has an amazing understanding of building techniques, property details and possible ideas with which someone can do in any house. He does what seems like hours of research on every home we went to go view. He knew the complete history of each home and what fully what they had to offer before we ever got there. Ben does not try to make every house seem like it is the house you should have, he will point out issues he notices, and areas of concern being sure to make a point of them and let you know. He isn’t just trying to make a sale, he wants you to have a home you will love, and you can tell that is his goal. Throughout the process once we found a home and made an offer, he was fully involved and was the main contact for us. He gave us insight into the industry and how we should go about offering a price that would meet the needs of both parties involved, was fair, and was right for the surrounding area homes. He was always quick to answer your response to any question, and most times within minutes, as if he knew when you were emailing him. That was very impressive to us. We never had to wait and hold our breath for an answer, or when he would respond, we knew it would always be fast. There is nothing more stressful when you are so excited about something. Even if Ben didn’t know anything new since our last inquiry, he still would respond and ease our minds. Ben makes buying a house enjoyable, I have dealt with other realtors, and Ben is like none other. We were never a nuisance to him with all our questions as he taught us the industry and what to expect. He was with us in this journey every step of the way. After our sale, Ben has helped us with great referrals that have helped us get our new home ready for the move in. He is well connected in the industry and has made it easy for us. Thanks Ben, we love our new house!!!”

Travis & Vanessa


Ben was great to work with! He was very familiar with the area that we were looking at and very patient with us while we went through the process of finding our home. He showed us any property we were interested in and found some that we might not otherwise have found/looked into. Throughout the process he was positive and honest and even taught us about some of the aspects of buying a home. We really enjoyed working with him and appreciate all that he did for us.”

Andrew & Katie


“Trish and I want to thank you and all at The Simanton Group for representing us in the listing and sale of our home in Oviedo. Your market knowledge, negotiating skills and marketing tools were perfect in every way and resulted in a quick and seamless sale. We greatly appreciate all you did for us and highly recommend you and your firm to any who desire to sell or purchase a home and wish to have the finest representation available.”



“Ben handled the sale of our home in Winter Park, FL with complete integrity, honesty, and Christian like attitude. We were completely pleased and satisfied with every dealing we had with Ben. Since we live in another state, Ben’s job was a bit more difficult in having to do everything long distance. Ben was patient, kind and answered all questions without hesitation. We would not hesitate to recommend Ben to anyone we know looking for a real estate agent. In fact, when our daughter and son-in-law are ready to find a permanent home, they will be calling on Ben’s expertise for help. Ben is a true professional”

Jim & Sandy Fox


““I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your exceptional service as our realtor. My sister, Nancy, found you on the internet and we took a chance not having met you previously, however we could not be more pleased with your service. You were always available, even after church on Sundays to meet & show us homes. You personally delivered keys to us after the sale and tied other loose ends for us on your own time. Amazingly in this economy, you sold two homes for us and Nancy purchased a new one within a two month span and with such a smooth transition we never had to find interim housing. The videos that you made for the homes almost made us reconsider selling. They looked like model homes by the time you were done. Thank you so much for your professionalism with such a personal touch. We will be highly recommending you to our friends.” ”

Christine & Nancy


“Ben is the ultimate professional and I would recommend him and RE/MAX Optima to anyone looking to sell their home. Ben was not only knowledgeable about the area and market, he was very responsive to any questions or concerns that arose. Ben was very creative and used all the tools and technology to assist in marketing our home to potential buyers. I would not hesitate to use Ben and his agency again.”

Bill & Mayme


“Ben sold two houses for me. He's very knowledgeable in the business of real estate. He doesn't pull any punches and is able to tell you what your house is worth. His appraisals are right on the mark and for me he always negotiated and got the asking price. Ben is very personable and professional.”

“Ben was a tremendous help to us in selling our home. We had moved out of the area so we needed someone that we could trust to oversee the home and the sales process. When issues arose from the buyer side, he was quick to give us options. He truly went above and beyond to get our home sold quickly and at a price that we had hoped for. I would definitely recommend him. From his professionalism to his responsiveness, Ben Simanton was an excellent choice for us.”
