Ben Schafer | BIOPartner/Auctioneer/Broker
Ben Schafer is the 5th generation of Schafer’s residing in Noble County. With deep roots such as that, Ben is fully engrained within all aspects of South East Ohio. His passion for work has allowed him to serve not only Noble County, but the entire Southeastern Ohio Region. Having “hands-on” experience, growing up in the business, and being reared on a working farm – makes Ben uniquely qualified in rural Ohio.
Ben has been involved in thousands of real estate transactions in his 20 years in the business, ranging from small rental properties or estates to gas and oil trades exceeding tens of millions of dollars. This broad brush of experience coupled with being an auctioneer, a real estate broker and operating an ever growing property management firm in South East Ohio has given Ben extraordinary boots on the ground training. Some of his greatest training has come from his father and grandfather. The mission statement for Ben Schafer Realty is a quote from Vincent Schafer, “Take care of the people, and the people will take care of you.”
Property management has become another segment of Ben’s business. Being an investor himself, he has hands on experience delivering value to the owner/tenant relationship. Understanding market trends in income investment properties is crucial to an investor’s return on investment and Ben will help by providing a long term strategy. Ben understands the importance of giving back to the community and region where he works and lives. He donates his professional expertise to the youth of both Noble and Guernsey County serving as an auctioneer. Ben also does several other benefits auction annually, whether for an individual in need – or an organization, trying to make a difference. Ben has served on many boards in his young age – currently Ben is a trustee for the Noble County Community Improvement Corporation and also serves as a member of the Noble County Regional Planning Commission. In the past he has been a Board of Director for the Noble County Chamber of Commerce and has
served as a member of St. Mary’s Church of the Immaculate Conception parish council.
Ben lives at home with his wife, Angela and two daughters, Elle and Claire. When Ben isn’t busy he enjoys spending time with friends and family – just taking it easy. Ben look forwards to helping “YOU” out in your next real estate endeavor – whatever is – you won’t be disappointed.
