Customer Reviews

 

 

"We just purchased a home in Northville.  I cannot say enough good things about our agent, Chris Benedict.  She was wonderful to us.  We were using another agent at another agency and just not receiving results.  My husband met Chris at an Open House and really liked her.  

I phoned Chris the next day and she arranged for us to see homes right away. On our first meeting she showed me 2 homes that I had not seen before with our other agent. After meeting with her I sent Chris a letter saying we had confidence in her to find us a home and were hoping to do so in 3 months. 

We had been home searching for a while and were feeling somewhat discouraged as the Northville Market is very tight to say the least.   She called all the 4 bedroom home owners in our existing neighborhood to see if they were wanting to sell, then put up a notice to the other agents that she had someone "ready to move ASAP." 

It worked.  She found us a house listed with another broker in her office.  It was perfect.  We made an offer (my husband hadn't even seen it yet).  We just closed on the house this past Monday, and are moving in this week.

We are beyond happy.  Chris was wonderful, attentive, and just so great to work with."  Steve and Christina

"Chris was a wonderful Realtor to work with.  She was professional and knowledgeable.  We purchased our house while living out of the country and she was our eyes and ears for the transaction.  She truly did represent us in our home buying experience.  She kept us updated every step of the way and made sure our needs were met.  We couldn't have been happier with her and would recommend her to anyone who needs to buy a home."  Chris and Mandy

Personal Background

Real estate is my second career; I feel incredibly blessed to be able to work in such a fascinating field, and help my many wonderful clients sell and/or find a great home.  Before becoming a Realtor, I was a sales representative in the college textbook industry, mostly with McGraw-Hill Publishing Company.  

My husband Bob and I have lived in the area for the past 15 years, moving here from Linden, MI.  What a great place this has been to raise our family!  We both grew up, went to college and have worked in different parts of the country-me in Ohio, Iowa and Georgia and Bob on the East Coast-and we simply love living here!  Bob manages an engineering group for General Motors.  Our oldest son is a junior at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and our youngest son just started his freshman year at Michigan Tech.  

Community Involvement

I an active member of my local community and church, serving in many capacities over the years. I have volunteered for multiple posititions as my children have moved through the Northville school system, including stints as an event organizer, newsletter publisher, etc. I have been a soccer coach and team manager on and off over the years, both for Northville Soccer Assoc. and my son's club teams. My family and I are quite involved at Hope Lutheran Church in Farmington Hills; I am part of the Stephen Ministry, sing in the choir and serve in other areas. I truly believe it's important to give back to our community and others, and strive to follow that code in my professional and my personal life.

Personal Interests

In my downtime I love to hang out with my family and friends, read, run, travel or play a quick nine holes of golf with my husband.
