Recommend Ben to anyone looking to relocate or invest in the Northern Idaho market!

As an out-of-state investor with limited knowledge of the area, I relied on the expertise of my agent and his staff to steer us in the right direction. Ben Geanetta was extremely helpful to coordinate property showings and advise on the areas and properties that would fit best within the criteria I gave him. After a few weeks of trekking across Northern Idaho and looking at numerous potential properties, we identified the perfect location for us and Ben went right to work negotiating the best deal he could. We are very pleased with the outcome and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ben to anyone looking to relocate or invest in the Northern Idaho market! Thanks, Ben! – Brought you by www.RealSatisfied.com/Benjamin-Geanetta

Hardworking, eager to please, and a great communicator

Benjamin is an awesome realtor and an outstanding person! I’d recommend him to anyone! Definitely hardworking, eager to please, and a great communicator. Always returned my calls and answered emails timely. We worked with Benjamin for a year and a half to find the right property. Benjamin definitely gave a lot of time, energy, and a fair amount of patience…well actually a lot of patience. Loved the fact that we were able to work as a team in finding properties. I can honestly say working with Ben was fantastic and the best part, we developed a friendship with him and his family. Thanks Ben and cheers!
If you want the best realtor Northern Idaho has to offer, simple decision, Ben is your guy and don’t be surprised if you make a new friend along the way. – RealSatisfied.com

Great attention to detail

Ben was working hard for us and understood our needs. I was very happy with Ben and will recomend him to anyone who’s looking to purchase a home. Ben is a professional with great attention to detail. He works hard for his clients to achieve their goals. Ben not only found us a great deal he went back after an excepted offer and got our purchase price reduced by $7500.00 . Once our deal closed and we took possession of the property the seller left the house extremely dirty. Ben hired a cleaning crew out of his own pocket. Our experience with Ben was great .” Realsatisfied.com

Daniel Smith

Down to earth and on top of everything

Ben went out of his way to scout properties for me as an out of town client. He was very patient even though it took writing 3 different offers to get the right property for my needs. His communication skills are excellent and he makes the stressful process of buying house easeful and pleasant. I would definitely use Ben again for any future purchases or sales in the Sandpoint, ID area.

We finally found “the one”

I am a small woman who traveled from out of state alone to find property in my home state of Idaho. I’m so glad that Jiwan was the first agent to respond to my email inquiry and the only one who took me seriously since I was inquiring from Florida. I made four trips to look at property with him and all were comfortable and enjoyable and we finally found “the one” – Century21.com

Extremely knowledgeable in the Sandpoint general area

Jiwan Ripley proved to be extremely knowledgeable in the Sandpoint general area. Asked the right questions and found us a house that we wanted. He also did things that you would not normally expect a real estate agent to do such as picking up the mail and packages and putting them inside the house while we moved to the area. -Century21.com

It was a long process for us to find our home since we were looking for something in particular. Once found our home, Jiwan Ripley was right there with us and helped us to jump thru all the loops that we needed to jump in order to make our purchase. He went above and beyond in the call duty! Always approachable with every step of the process, informing us with changes, needed items, stalls, and just about anything that was thrown our way, he was always the first to take the hit! Truly a keeper!! Jiwan Ripley is an amazing realtor! Reliable, outstanding communication, caring and excellent listening skills as to what our needs and wants were.

Helpful, Knowledgeable, Professional

Ben and ourselves may have gotten paired randomly via Zillow, but his professionalism and willingness to work with clients at our income level was paramount to our home purchasing success. Not every Realtor is willing to work with young First-Time Homebuyers. Ben was very helpful and knowledgeable with all of the different types of property in Bonner County. Land, Town Lots, and Condos up on Schweitzer. We looked at every option and he helped us get there. My wife and I were absolute beginners at home buying when we met Ben back in March, and we had a lot of basic questions. We definitely did not have the knowledge necessary to purchase a home back then and Ben was very helpful in teaching and navigating us through the process. We wouldn’t have been able to purchase the home that we did without Ben’s promptness and flexibility, due to the short duration of time that starter homes are on the market here. We can’t thank Ben enough! Realsatisfied.com

I wish there was a “Better than Excellent” category

We started looking in 2015 and Jiwan was incredibly quick to respond, yet he wasn’t pushy. This, along with his genuine personality and confidence, were what sold us on him. We’re so glad to have him on our side! We went through considering a lot of properties. Jiwan’s experience and knowledge of what we were looking for helped to knock out a lot of possible wasted time. He got to know us, then was able to direct us well. I wish there was a “better than excellent” category that we could pick for him. We not only loved our experience with him, we also referred my parents to him, as well! Our family asked if we had made any friends in Sandpoint, and we were able to say that our Real Estate agent was our first friend here. 🙂 – Century21.com

Jiwan’s knowledge of the local area helped us understand what to look for, the pros and cons of each micro-area and how seasonality might affect our choices. I cannot imagine our search would have been as successful without Jiwan’s help and guidance. We are extremely satisfied with Jiwan and recommend him to any of our friends who might need his services -Century21.com
