Jimmy Benson
Associate Broker
5808 Grove Avenue, Richmond, Virginia 23226
I am a native of Richmond and had parents who started in real estate over 40 years ago here in town. After 27 years in the business myself, I take a straightforward approach to tell my clients what they need to hear not what they want to hear. I am married to an amazing woman who has supported me in my career and growth, as a broker and husband. We are high school sweethearts and have 5 children: (boy, girl, boy, girl, boy). We are very active in their schools, our church, and our community. I love to have fun with the family, am a thrill seeker who loves skiing, golf, and most things outdoors. I offer full-service real estate sales with a personal touch.

Very Easy and Straighforward

We were very happy with our experience selling our condo with your team - very easy and straightforward. If we can forward our experience to others, we will.

Realtor and Advisor

Jimmy helped me purchase my last two homes. I recently moved and he was instrumental in helping manage the process with the builder. His expertise and knowledge not just of real estate but with contacts for repairs, cleaning and overall advice is extremely valuable. I am so grateful for having Jimmy as a realtor and advisor.

Highly Recommend Jimmy!

Mr. Benson was the real estate agent who was instrumental in selling my daughter's house and mine. Mr. Benson succeeded where other real estate agents failed. Throughout the process— from listing to sale— I was most impressed by Mr. Benson’s knowledge of the Mechanicsville market, and how best to list these two properties. I will always recommend Mr. Benson whenever asked by buyers or sellers.

Jimmy has assisted us in the purchase of several rental properties and did so in a very professional manner.He goes well beyond what is expected from an agent and makes the process stress free. We recommend Jimmy highly.

Jimmy has professional knowledge of the real estate market!

Our daughter's mortgage lender recommended Jimmy to us as we had little knowledge of where we'd like to relocate on the west side of Richmond. Due to COVID, we thought this would hamper our search. On the contrary, Jimmy was there for us. Once we found our dream, retirement home the details, advice, and input of Jimmy made for smooth sailing and a closing within 30 days. We really appreciated Jimmy's attention to detail, the personal time he spent with us, as well as his professional knowledge of the real estate market. Thanks so much.

Professionalism, Responsiveness

I’ve worked with Jimmy minimally 7 times, his knowledge, and his responsiveness is truly astounding. He’s genuine and warm, respected tremendously and people understand he means business. He follows his process and is very consistent. From my first home in my mid twenties, scared out of my mind of a $900 mortgage... to personal success that’s allowed me to afford a bit more luxury... he’s been at my side for every purchase. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Exceeded Expectations

Jimmy has helped us sell our primary residence quickly and for more than the asking price. He has also helped up purchase a new house for our primary residence as well as a number of rental properties. Jimmy always exceeds our expectations when it comes to timely communication, detail, and local knowledge. Highly recommend Jimmy!

Highly Recommend

Jimmy and his team were amazing when it came time to sell our home. He spent time with us to select the correct listing price and gave us great suggestions to make the home show well. As a result it sold in just 8 days!! Then his associate Rick Jeffreys showed us homes for sale for the next month as they were selling so fast. I will recommend and always use Jimmy and his team for buying or selling a home. So should you!

Always Professional and Honest

Jimmy has been the best realtor in the sale of our two homes; one ten years ago and recently in the sale of our home in December 2020 - closing January 2021. Always professional and honest!
