Florida native Benjiman Hillman, born in Brevard County, has three overriding goals in life: to serve his customers enthusiastically, raise his son and daughter and to look good and feel good while doing it.
Hillman graduated from high school and attended college in South Carolina majoring in business management before taking a job with a major U.S. restaurant chain. He was quickly promoted to management, and in 1996 he was named the chain's youngest area director.
He moved to Arkansas, where he opened two restaurants as sole owner before joining the Peabody Hotel corporation as a food and beverage manager in Little Rock.
Walt Disney World recruited him for a management position at the five-star Grand Floridian Resort in Orlando, but a real estate career beckoned. In 2004, Hillman earned his real estate license.
"I've worked with several professional PGA, NFL, and NBA players along with business and community leaders throughout the Windermere and downtown Orlando areas," Hillman says.
His personal commitment was perhaps best captured on the back of one of Hillman's former business cards: "My goal is to represent my Clients in all of their Real Estate needs and to make Client Satisfaction my number one priority."
Hillman enjoys church activities, playing golf (with a solid 6 handicap), setting an example for youth, working out, and fashion.
