When buying or selling a home, you want a local real estate agent who knows the area and offers a wealth of experience as your advocate and guide. Meet one of our newer Windermere Bainbridge agents: Ben Hoover. We’re delighted to feature him in our Q&A. We know his interesting professional background and genuine desire to help others achieve their real estate goals makes him an excellent addition to our office.
What drew you to real estate?
My interest in real estate started at a young age with a subscription to Architectural Digest and a job cleaning construction sites as a kid. For years, my primary interests have included the building process, interior and landscape design, and finding and securing unique opportunities – all with the goal to create loving, well-cared-for spaces. I joined the Windermere Team to leverage my experience and interests to help others meet their real estate goals and needs.
What unique professional experiences or skills do you possess that enhance your abilities as a Realtor?
I started in commercial real estate in 1995. That specific experience combined with professional construction and corporate management experiences developed my negotiation skills, analytical abilities to solve problems and grit to develop win-win solutions.
What personality traits do you think are important in this profession?
Listening skills, patience, tenacity, integrity, and a strong work ethic.
Which areas do you serve and what do you love about them?
I focus primarily on Bainbridge Island and the North Kitsap Peninsula. The nature and pace of this region offer a beautiful lifestyle for all ages.

How are you involved in the community?
Following a lengthy residential remodel, I am excited to become more active in the community. I look forward to being of assistance to the Bainbridge Island Parks & Trails Foundation and Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.
What made you decide to work with Windermere?
When we moved to Bainbridge in 2020, we had a very positive experience working with Bill Hunt and Susan Grosten on our home purchase. When I decided to revisit my interest in real estate, I already knew I wanted to join the Windermere Bainbridge Island team.
Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
I feel so fortunate to live on Bainbridge Island and join the community. It’s fun meeting people, serving clients, and learning from colleagues.
