Benny is known for his ability to keep his clients happy, informed and pleasantly sane during the potentially rigorous process of selling and buying real estate. He gets the deal done and gets it done as quickly and smoothly as possible. "I have been through the process myself many times and know how important it is to have someone knowledgeable in your corner to guide you every step of the way.and having a sense of humor helps."
For the past 23 years, Benny made his living as a professional stand up comedian under the name D.C. Benny. He toured worldwide, appeared in many national commercial campaigns, feature films, and television shows and was known as one of the first non African American performers to get a standing ovation on Showtime At The Apollo. >br> While working as an entertainer, Benny developed his real estate skills when he and his wife purchased, renovated and sold homes in Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, and Carroll Gardens. He found that what can be a daunting process for most, came naturally to him, and decided to apply all he learned on his own to building a career in real estate.
To better service his clients, Benny partnered up with his friend Luis Martinez, a seasoned professional who was embarking on a ground-up development project in the red-hot Gowanus area. The combined result is a formidable team who goes above and beyond for their clients, are fun to work with, and are meticulous about how they handle each and every property.
When Benny is not selling real estate, he helps his wife with her bath and body company (www.ricabody.com), works on his Carroll Gardens brownstone, takes walks with his dog Grits, and still performs on the weekends at comedy clubs in Manhattan (www.dcbenny.com).
