Meet Jimmy Benson

Jimmy grew up in RVA, graduated from Radford University with a degree in Finance, and began his real estate career here in 1993. His parents started their own brokerage in 1975, so you may say it’s in his blood. After 30 plus years in the business himself, Jimmy takes a straightforward approach, advising clients of what they need to hear, not what they want to hear. He also holds a Class A Contractor’s license and has extensive knowledge of investing and property management. Jimmy and his team have consistently and consecutively been recognized with the firm’s top honor – The Ruby Award - for remaining in the top ten teams by units sold and sales volume. The Jimmy Benson Team believes our clients should make informed, not pressured decisions, which is why we offer straight-forward honest advice and representation, interpreting the market for you, allowing you to make wise decisions to achieve your goals. Backed by 30 plus years of experience and knowledge of the industry, we pride ourselves on delivering results and exceptional service by providing a personalized experience for each client. Jimmy is the proud father of five – three boys and two girls, ranging in age from fifteen to twenty-four, three of which are in college! He is continually active in their schools, his church, and this community. Jimmy is a thrill seeker who loves skiing, running, getting his hands dirty, renovation and design, and most things outdoors. His passion for helping others with real estate, or otherwise, is evident from your first connection!

We thank you for considering The Jimmy Benson Team and would be honored if given the opportunity to help!

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.
