Tom Barnicle has over 13 years experience as a real estate agent. He has direct "hands on" experience flipping single family and multifamily properties as well. This has given Tom a critical eye when showing properties to his clients. Many agents have not done extensive hands on rehabbing and miss issues that then turn up in an inspection. By that time, a buyer is out $500+ dollars in inspection fees, and back to the drawing board looking for a house. When selling, Tom has good ideas of simple things to do, that don't cost a lot of money, to get your house ready to list. Tom has degrees in Horticulture and Plant Science.
We were looking for a home with another company and not having a lot of success. After looking for three months without finding a home I met Ben. Within three days we found the home we were looking for. Ben contacted me on Friday night, we looked at the house on Sunday, made an offer and it was accepted. I don't think I could have asked for better service.

Ben Is the Best anyone can ask for in the Real Estate world. We have Sold and bought a few houses in our
lifetime. Ben was the BEST. Other agents have forgotten how to ask questions of there clients. For us, Ben
asked questions of us, listened to us and asked more questions. Looking at a few houses with another
agent, Ben brought us a Light at the end of our tunnel. Simply, he Listened to us. Ben will be Highly
recommended by us.

I remember hearing the saying "Ken did it again" for another real estate professional here in Omaha.... Well
for me it was "Ben did it again"!!
Ben is extremely professional and did an excellent job selling my home and finding a new home to purchase.
Ben helped to negotiate both transactions with ease. Ben's law background and detailed information about
comparable homes were quite helpful. I am so please with the work he did! Thanks Ben!
