Present – Realtor Ben in Brevard County
It has always been my dream to live close to the beach. Since my mother in law is the owner of the El Leoncito/Chaparral Restaurants in Titusville, Cocoa and Viera, it was an easy decision for me and my wife to move to Brevard county and closer to our family. Working with my wife’s real estate company Blue Palms Realty, I get to benefit from her experience as a real estate broker as well as her 15+ years of real estate experience, and of course it’s great working with the one I love. Together we’re a great team helping sellers and buyers in Brevard county and the Florida Space Coast.

Born in Berlin, Germany
I was born on April 15th 1985 in Berlin. With a population of 3.5 million people, Berlin is also the capital of Germany.
The Fall of the Berlin Wall
At the age of 4, I already became a small part of history when in 1989 the Berlin wall finally fell. The little boy on the left is me, hammering off pieces of the wall. And as John F. Kennedy once said,”… All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Berlin, and therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words “Ich bin ein Berliner!”
Florida – Love at First Sight
At the age of 6, my parents and I traveled to Florida for the first time. I immediately fell in love with the beautiful beaches, the waves, the american way of life and most of all the happiest place on earth. I’m so grateful for this experience and the opportunity to come visit my new “second home” almost every year thereafter.
A Fairy Tale Wedding
After meeting my wife Cosette while being on vacation here in Florida, it was clear there was only one place on earth where we could get married and luckily my dream came true. It’s such a blessing to have someone who is not only the love of my life but also my best friend.
My Favorite Things To Do
I love all water activities, in particular wake-boarding & wake-skating. On our days off we love going to theme parks, play with our cats or spend some time at the beach. Personally I also enjoy designing websites, such as this one.
