With a background in marketing, advertising, design and sales, Ben Bodelson always knew real estate would be his final destination for work. “I left a job, took some time off, was presented an opportunity to work in real estate and took it,” Bodelson says. “Real estate has always been a passion of mine, and the timing worked out for where I was headed next. Real estate isn’t just something I do — it’s total immersion, from purchasing, selling and investing to design and marketing.”
A decade later, Bodelson has a terrific track record with buyers and sellers, as well as investors with whom he works. His clients appreciate his endless enthusiasm and passion for the product, 24/7 access and service, and excellent negotiation skills. Bodelson’s clients also like that he pushes the boundaries of what they’re looking for, coming up with new ideas and alternative solutions for their real estate needs. “I am very proactive with my clients and contact them when I see something they should check out,” he says. “I consider myself to be a wealth builder and asset manager for them.”
Having lived in Chicago since 1988 in various neighborhoods and types of places, Bodelson has a keen understanding of how locations have changed and grown, and what opportunities are there for clients. He has worked throughout the city, from Rogers Park to Hyde Park, and from the lakefront to Humboldt Park and Garfield Park, as well as in suburbs such as Hinsdale, Lemont, Evanston, Glenview and Naperville. Bodelson has also been recognized as a top producer by the Chicago Association of Realtors and in various publications.
