Who We Are
Top talent driving innovation in real estate
The Ben Kinney Team strives to perfect the systems and strategies that get more homes sold for the most amount of money in the least amount of time.
We tap into our team’s unparalleled knowledge of the local real estate market, real estate tech tools, and aggressive marketing and search engine strategies to help sellers achieve the best possible success in pricing, showing and marketing their properties.
What Sets Us Apart
At Ben Kinney Companies, we have a defining culture of doing much more than just selling real estate. As a Keller Willams affiliated organization, we share the KW culture of serving each other, our communities and our planet. Our mission, vision, values and culture differentiate us as industry innovators and leaders.
Delivering the dream of home ownership everywhere.
All branches of the Ben Kinney Companies have this same goal, because owning real estate provides security, safety and opportunity for individuals. The technology we build helps real estate agents become more efficient at their job and find more customers to deliver on that mission. Our training prepares agents to be even better by utilizing exceptional techniques and systems, and the Ben Kinney Teams constantly help families find and sell homes.
Dominate markets, make millionaires and give millions.
We want to win at what we do, and we do all we can to help our customers, agents and employees build wealth. We love to work with people who are passionate about working hard and also giving back to their communities in a big way.
Our values are what everyone who works at Ben Kinney Companies strives for each day, and they are applicable to any companies we work with. These values are also the metric we use to decide to invest or get in business with others. We believe our team’s success is determined by our ability to maintain our HEALTH, which is defined by our core values:
Faith. Family. Business.
Our family of companies supports a commitment to faith and family before business, and supports each individual’s spiritual choice. We believe the messages contained in the Scriptures that represent our core values are shared among all individuals, regardless of their spiritual beliefs.
