Benjamin Steward joins Coldwell Banker in Lewes

November 16, 2013

The agents and staff of Coldwell Banker Resort Realty welcomed sales agent Benjamin Steward to its Lewes location. Steward has been a licensed realtor since 1991 in the Washington, D.C., and northern Virginia areas. He has enjoyed great success marketing homes, and matching buyers and sellers for more than 20 years, reaching lifetime membership in his firm’s Founder’s Gold Club as a top producer.

Born and raised in Connecticut, Steward received his bachelor’s degree in economics from Lawrence University, Appleton, Wis. Making Washington, D.C., his home for more than 30 years, he renovated and lived in more than 10 homes in some of the most vibrant and progressive neighborhoods of downtown D.C. Having vacationed in the Delaware coastal communities throughout his professional life, Steward moved to Milton in 2011, beginning his second career in Delaware in 2013.

"It's gratifying to find that through our own passions and ambitions, we build a lifetime of opportunities, skills and experiences to develop ourselves into what we have to offer to others," Steward said. "I've been in sales and marketing all my life; I’ve always been involved with planning, negotiations, creating partnerships, and maintaining professional relationships; I’ve been a restaurateur, chef, caterer, amateur architect and home restorator throughout my professional life in Washington, D.C. And this is perfect for real estate here in Delaware!"

"Ben's attention to detail, sense of responsibility, creativity and his ability to be in the moment are all great assets in a sales agent, necessary all throughout the transaction process," said Dolores Desmond, broker of record and sales manager of the Lewes office. "He listens well, is responsive, perceptive and always decisive, and this is what it takes to have a smooth transaction in today's complex market."

Steward is also an active member of the training and coaching programs of the national real estate educator and trainer Tom Ferry of Palm Desert, Calif.
