Why Cam Benson?
I have devoted my career to real estate. Having grown up and raised a family in the Chicago area, I am familiar with all the neighborhoods. As a seasoned professional who has witnessed the ups and downs in the market, I have the ability to close deals during the toughest times. I am skilled at creative lending and doing what needs to be done to achieve my clients' real estate objectives.
I have always been dedicated to the industry and my clients because I truly love what I do. I understand that the process of buying or selling a home can be difficult and emotional, and I am always available to help clients through the process. I believe that buying a home is an investment, but is also a place where a family will be living. With empathy and know-how, I help clients separate the emotions to help them make an informed choice in the next step of their lives.

Clients are saying:
"I am wholly confident that my husband and I have a new home as a result of the services of Cam Benson. When we found the house that we wanted, Cam was able to get us the first showing. Within a day, the house had four offers. With Cam's help, we submitted an incredibly competitive and creative offer. We would never have thought about structuring the offer the way we did without Cam's help. We quickly learned that we were the highest bid, and she was promptly at our door making sure we signed everything we needed. It was our first home purchase, and Cam held our hand the entire way providing necessary feedback and insight. Her experience in the industry as well as knowledge of the neighborhood proved invaluable. Not only would I use Cam again in a heartbeat, I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new property. Simply put, we honestly felt like we were working with the best."
"Cam is a chip off her mother who sold us our home 46 years ago and her daughter Jill is an excellent side kick."
"Cam and Jill were a fabulous team. Thanks to Jill we found our forever home. We would recommend Cam and Jill to any potential home buyers"
"There were many 'surprise' issues that came up during the inspection. Jill & Cam were both right there to help me resolve them in ways that were both fair to me as the seller and fair to the buyer. I was able to reach either one of them whenever I had questions or concerns. If I had to leave a voice mail, I would always get a prompt call back. Jill & Cam made me feel like I had known them for years. The trust and confidence I have in both of them is of the highest level."
"We chose Cam to represent us even though we had a real estate agent in the family because we felt her experience and knowledge of the area would facilitate our sale. It took us a year, but Cam was always there, full of positive energy, guiding us in a truly honest and professional manner."
