About Ben Derauf

Ben is a real estate professional known for his market knowledge and his unmatched devotion to clients. He earns the respect of his clients by working tirelessly on their behalf and by always offering them candid advice building a true feeling of advocacy.


Ben grew up in rural Minnesota learning family values and a staunch work ethic as he apprenticed as a General Contractor.  He eventually pursued his undergraduate degree from the University of North Dakota, followed by his MBA from University of Illinois (completed this summer).  His Midwest upbringing gives him an effective combination of “Minnesota Nice” charm and South Florida determination. He likes to win (for his clients) but does so with a calm demeanor and a smile.


Ben previously held an executive career in the hospitality industry managing many high-end and reputable golf facilities and country clubs throughout South Florida.  This experience created first class service standards, a vast network of relationships, and knowledge of the elite Florida real estate market.


In Ben’s free time, he considers himself a hobby enthusiast involving himself in countless activities including golf, hockey, woodworking, home remodeling, hiking, camping, and inshore/offshore fishing.  The best part of his day though, is coming home to his adoring four-year-old daughter, Lakelynn, and loving wife, Brittany.  This makes him an avid Disney visitor and Frozenfan.


As a Realtor, Ben’s first priority is to make his clients happy.  He listens to his clients wants and needs and strives to ensure that the home buying or selling process is fun, easy and stress-free. His clients know that he’s available whenever they need him.


Let Ben help make your homeownership dreams come true.
