Licensee/Selling Principal, Ray White Shellharbour Oak Flats Group
Local knowledge is a vital ingredient in the real estate industry. Ben calls the Shellharbour region home having spent virtually all his life living in the area. He attended school locally and completed his higher school certificate at Warilla high in 2000. Ben and his family now reside in Barrack Point. Ben’s passion for the real estate industry started from a very young age and he only ever had one career path in mind. Ben holds his real estate license which is held by a very limited number of real estate agents in the area after concluding his real estate studies by correspondence at TAFE. Ben is also an accredited auctioneer and has called several property auctions with great success since gaining that qualification in 2014.
With more than ten years’ experience behind him Ben has listed and sold property between Wollongong and Kiama. Ben’s record sale currently sits at $1.82 million for a beachfront property in Shellharbour; however he simply enjoys helping move clients towards where they want to be. Buying or selling, whatever the price range. When given the opportunity to relax, Ben enjoys watching and playing many sports. He is involved in the local sporting community playing cricket, squash & rugby league. Ben is an impressive young man mature beyond his years.
He is able to see the long term benefits of his hard work while he is very focused on success. In 2006 Ben became a partner in the Shellharbour Village office, and then in 2010 he and his fellow directors purchased the already established Oak Flats/ Albion Park Rail office giving them a larger core service area and an extensive property management portfolio. Ben’s passion and enthusiasm for selling property as well as his approachable personality & professionalism make him the ideal person to deal with for any of your real estate needs.
Ben has been very efficient and very professional in our dealings with him both in the purchase of our new property and in the pending sale and settlement of our current property. His helpful and friendly manner has made the process of buying and selling our properties a very smooth process.

Ben was very professional in the way he went about talking to us and explaining each step in the sale of the house and he was very positive in securing the best price for us.

We found Ben Cohen was very professional in helping us buy our house on the beach. However it was the sale of our existing home that he was great we only had two viewing open days before Ben got us a price that we were happy with. When we moved into our new house there were a few problems to be sorted and the Ray White team got onto the builder and had the problems sorted ASAP. Our experience with Ben and the Shellharbour team was such that we would without hesitation recommend them to our friends.
Rick & Pat Norris - Shell Cove & Shellharbour
I was very happy with the way that Ben dealt with the sale of my house. He gave me immediate feedback after open house times or when he had shown people through. He gave up valuable family time to bring prospective buyers to the house even when he had planned to have the day off. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any one who is contemplating selling their home Regards Anne Murdoch

I have dealt with Ben on several occasions in regards to property in Shellharbour. He always conducts himself in a professional manner, and I trust that he has consideration for both parties interests while negotiating a sale.

Ben Cohen was a great agent to deal with throughout the purchasing process of our new home. His professionalism, knowledge and friendly approach are to be commended. Ben took time to explain procedures each step of the way and even took time to put us in contact with other services that proved to be invaluable. Thanks for a service of the highest quality!!

I would simply like to say that I greatly appreciated the effort you put into selling my parents house at Barrack Point. Personally, I think you achieved a very good outcome in a relatively difficult market. For me, up until the time you were appointed as the agent, the whole experience had for various reasons, been quite stressful. When you took over the agency for the house I immediately felt far more at ease and given the fact that I had to return to Cairns, it was important to have absolute confidence in your work. I think your professionalism was readily apparent in the assessments you made, in the way in which you kept me informed and in the manner in which you offered advice when required. I know it couldn't have been easy for you given that I had to discuss every issue with the rest of the family, but I did appreciate that fact that I could put my/our concerns to you and you always responded honestly and with integrity. So thank you very very much, Ben. You have been marvellous agent to work with and I would most certainly recommend your services to anyone. I wish you and your business every success.

Ben ensured that the sale of my property went very smoothly. Despite living on the other side of the country Ben always kept me in the loop with any updates as the sale progressed. I received a great price and great support from Ben and the Ray White team. I would have no hesitation in using Ben Cohen or Ray White with future property purchases or sales.
Mr S Sablowski - Barrack Heights
Thanks Ben for being up front and honest with the whole process of listing and selling our property. And for getting the job done quicker than expected.
Mr J Italia - Lake Illawarra
Ben wasn't pushy like we have experienced with other real estate agents. If we sell again we will most likely use Ray White and your level of advertising is superior - better coverage.

Ben kept us informed of every step. Lots of people were brought through the home from day 1. Great internet presentation, a good job done by Ben.
