Ben grew up and was raised in Southwest Missouri. Since early childhood, he was taught how to show respect and care for those around him and to have a strong work ethic. After graduation from high school he attended and graduated from College of the Ozarks. While attending “Hard Work U”, Ben learned even more so the value and need for honesty, integrity, and hard work. Having fallen in love with the Springfield/Branson area, Ben chose to make this area his permanent home. He is now very much a family man having been married for a little over twelve years and has two beautiful daughters. Ben has put his education to good use through different jobs in sales, management, and even small business ownership. Ben currently works for the number one real estate company in Southwest Missouri. Murney Associates is a top 100 company in the nation and has over 35% of the market share in Southwest Missouri with national and international reach.

When not working, he loves to travel, spend time with family, and catch as many Springfield/St. Louis Cardinal games that he can. Having found an amazing career in Real Estate Sales, Ben would love to put his education and background to good use in helping you either buy, sell, or invest in real estate. Ben believes in family values and knows that when it comes to buying and selling a home it speaks volumes. Whether you are looking for your first family home, a house that you can raise your family in, or just need to downsize; then give Ben a call and let him take care of your family.
