Born and raised among a family of Realtors, Ben Strock has Real Estate in his blood. Growing up in Los Altos, Ben worked for his father, a real estate broker and owner of Strock Realty and Financial in Palo Alto. A graduate of the University of Oregon with a B.S. in Business-Economics and a concentration in banking and finance, Ben was a licensed agent at the time of his graduation in 2001. Ben quickly earned his place among Santa Cruz County's most respected agents, earning the trust of both his contemporaries and clients. With extensive knowledge of construction, finance, design, and the escrow process, Ben brings a distinct perspective that sets him apart from his peers. His negotiating skills, creativity, and honesty make him a valuable asset for any transaction.
After years spent gaining local knowledge and an excellent reputation, Ben opened Strock Real Estate in Aptos in 2007. His mission is simple: provide the very best for his clients through hard work, dedication and integrity. Whether you are buying, selling, or simply looking for some honest advice, Ben is here to help.
As a long-time resident and business owner in Aptos, Ben cares deeply about his community. A member of the Seacliff Improvement Association, passionate advocate for the community, and member of various charitable organizations, you will often find Ben walking through the neighborhood with his wife, young son and dog.
Ben has continually been ranked among the top agents in the area and was the top agent by sales volume in Santa Cruz County in 2016. Most important to Ben, however, are the relationships he forms with his clients, considering every client "a client for life."
