Ben’s career in real estate has seen him specialise in the marketing and sale of both luxury and lifestyle properties. He understands selling high value homes in this exclusive segment of the market can often be a longer process, requiring an unwavering commitment from the agent.

Becoming an expert on every property he sells is a must. When purchasing premium properties, buyers expect a certain level of service and information from the agent; Ben’s commitment to this sees happy, well informed buyers move forward with absolute confidence.

Ben’s passion for real estate stems from a desire to work with, and indeed guide people through one of the biggest decisions of their lives. Building lasting and meaningful relationships with both Vendors and Purchasers, Ben prides himself on a personable, calm and genuine approach to selling property.

With an extensive background in engineering, information technology and more recently, project management in the financial sector for ANZ, Ben has spent his career problem solving. Through the years he has taken pleasure in building relationships with colleagues, clients and customers and as a result, has excellent interpersonal relationship skills.


I just can't think how anyone could possibly have done a better job than Ben and Flora. It was wonderful.

The service we have received from Ben Hawan has exceeded our expectations. He has been personable, professional and prompt. His guidance, planning and excellent communication skills resulted in a seamless process, and most importantly, produced a... buyer.

Ben’s I.T knowledge and marketing skills covered both local and international buyers which created a very broad interest that ultimately got us our target sale.

Ben’s communication skills were excellent, he was on call 24/7 a...nd came back to us as soon as we left a message. He was very helpful advising us on his presentation ideas for  preparing our home and farm for viewing of our open homes.

His professionalism had our interests first and foremost in regards to every aspect regarding potential viewings and consulting on all aspects with home and farm. We felt very confident leaving Ben with our keys and dog in our absence.

We have no hesitation recommending Ben as anyone’s real estate agent at any level, which already have.

My wife and I recently purchased a lifestyle property through Ben Hawan, we couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Ben was very professional and accommodating for both the vendor and the purchaser. Ben was helpful in explaining what... we needed to do and putting us in touch with the right people. He was always available to answer any questions we had and contacted people to find solutions. If we were to sell our property or be looking for another we wouldn’t hesitate to contact Ben first

Ben always kept his word, got back to us promptly and never pushed too hard. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a lifetyle property.

Ummacannon - Buyer

We were surprised when Ben walked down our long drive, our property is at the end if a road, down a very steep hill. Nobody walks down our drive. We found out later he had walked down the hill from the “private road” sign and walked b...ack up. We were planning on putting our property on the market in the next few months, so his timing was good. His friendly but highly professional approach was impressive from the get – go. We had had some other agents out giving appraisals, but Ben offered far more. We weren’t disappointed, Ben gave us a “to do list” to prepare the property, he even helped with the weed eating. A big job mid-summer, we agreed a marketing start date for the intensive four week campaign. We were impressed with the wide coverage of the campaign. Ben was in touch often, kept us fully informed all the way through, we couldn’t have asked for more. Any questions were answered promptly. Within seven weeks we had an unconditional offer that we were very pleased with. The settlement period was quite long but Ben stayed involved and keeping us informed all the way. You couldn’t ask for a nicer, better mannered agent. Ben gets results without being pushy, he was a pleasure to work with.
