About Ben Stephen

Raising the Bar in Southwest Michigan Real Estate since 2017

-Benjamin J. Stephen



Since Starting in real estate in 2017 I have had the priviledge of helping over 100+ clients with their real estate needs.  As a high-performing single agent I continue to bring my creativity, passion and market expertise to every client I serve.  I pride myself on offering unrivaled marketing and negotiating services for all who choose to work with me. 

My journey to real estate was a bit unconventional, but formed me into who I am today.  Prior to real estate I spent six years working in the aviation industry as a flight instructor as well as a military contractor flying defense drones overseas.  In November of 2016, my wife Jessica and I were blessed with a baby boy named Lucas, while we where living in California.  Shortly after Lucas was born, I had to travel to Africa for my first deployment for a government contracting position.  I left my new baby boy and my wife in the States and I headed to Africa in support of my country, to make a living for my family, and to seek adventure.  While I was deployed for a total of six months, working alongside the US military, I found out a lot about myself and dug deep within to find more meaning in my life.  Once I realized the deployment lifestyle wasn’t for me, I focused almost my entire deployment day on self improvement, developing my faith, reading lots of books including the Bible and to my real estate study curriculum to pass the Michigan state test.  My journey across the world helped me to realize that my life energy and focus needs to be on my faith, family, my community and the good people that make up Southwest Michigan. 

I am now back in my hometown of St. Joseph living with my wife and two boys.  As a St. Joseph native, I am thrilled to be able to show so many people the beauty of Southwest Michigan.  When I'm not with my family or working, I enjoy spending my time on Lake Michigan kiteboarding at all of the local beaches up and down the coast.  

I am bringing my loyalty, integrity and fresh energy to the real estate industry and to the people I serve.  My life experiences and Gods grace have changed me and I'm looking at the world with fresh eyes, a new heart, and a clear mind.  I am honored to be serving the people of Southwest Michigan with one of the most important transactions of their lives, their home.


Please do not hesitate to call or email me to discuss your real estate needs. I would love to hear from you!  Please check out my Facebook page to get to know me and my family as well!
