made us feel like VIP

“After working with realtors in locations from the west coast to the east coast of the USA to Australia to the Hawaiian Islands, for over twenty years of selling and buying houses, I have never been impressed with a realtor as I was with Ben. I originally called him after researching his background and was hopeful, but I never expected to receive the quality of work he put into being our realtor. After learning about what our needs and desires were for the perfect home, he put together an extensive as possible list in our desired area of all possible houses and showed them all to us. He commented pros and cons of each house honestly and provided maps. He provided print out packets for us with all this info for reference. He gave us all the time we needed to look, phone conversations, FaceTime and made us feel like VIP. He got to know us so he could help us better. He spent a lot of time and put in many hours with all the nuances of our complicated property of choice. Ben gave us insight into the area that we would have never known unless we had lived there ourselves. He is extremely organized, hardworking, thoughtful, knowledgeable, gracious, trustworthy and gives considerable attention to detail. He is easy going and conscientious. To sum it up, I consider him to be a perfect realtor!” -Home Buyer in 2019 in Kilauea, HI

Remarkable Elevated Bar of Sophistication

Wow, what you both do to support in the process of real estate transactions is a remarkably elevated bar of sophistication. I surmise you two are already known on the island to be in the top stratums of this business and if you don’t already “own the island” in this regard, I expect you will continue to hold to the top as long as you determine to keep making real estate transactions your business!”  -Rex Beasley, Engineer & President at FutureSpace Corp

team’s attention to detail was great

“Ben and his team effectively managed our entire purchasing process without us visiting the island to participate.... a testament to their capabilities. His knowledge of the market is excellent allowing us to choose the best possible home within our budget. He was able to guide our decision making, carefully blending our requests with his local knowledge to ensure we made the most sensible decisions. His guidance through some complex financial negotiations were practical and beneficial, allowing us to move the purchase to a favorable conclusion. The team’s attention to detail was great, allowing us to complete the process from afar, and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Ben and his team as consummate responsible professionals and great people.” -Bought a condo in 2019 in Princeville, HI

the perfect home for us on Kauai

“We were so fortunate to have found Ben to help us find the perfect home for us on Kauai. His knowledge and experience was invaluable as was his background with the planning commission and zoning. Thanks to Ben we found the perfect property in the perfect location for our family. Overall, he made our experience so easy and enjoyable every step of the way from our first tour of the island to the closing of our home. We highly recommend him as a highly skilled realtor and first-class person to anyone looking to purchase property in Hawaii.” -Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Kilauea, HI

extensive local knowledge

“Ben had extensive local knowledge on a street by street basis. Our search took more than a year and Ben remained responsive, helpful and positive throughout the entire process. His negotiating skills helped us close the deal. It was a pleasure to work with him!” -Bought a Vacant Land lot in 2018 in Kilauea, HI

SOLD: Hanalei Bay Beachfront Property

“Ben and Tiffany - as I look back at 2012, you two were a big part of what made it such an amazing year for me. You quickly and effectively sold my two Hanalei properties, both of which I had attempted to sell privately prior to listing with you. As you know, my beachfront lots were in escrow with a private buyer (who also had no agent representation), but that escrow was cancelled abruptly after extending for 9 long months… so I was left with no buyer and no sale.

After that experience, I interviewed you both and gave you the listing. You were both so easy to work with - not the typical "high pressure" salespeople - and you saw to every detail, from preparing the listing to intricate contract negotiations. The end result was a strong, all-cash offer on the table within days of listing, which really showed your ability to find the right buyer for an upper-end property on Hanalei Bay. In short, you both added a ton of experience, knowledge, and value to the process. So a Big Mahalo once again.” -Jan Elizabeth


Happy Sellers In Poipu

“Ben - we did it! Thanks to you and the whole team at Hawaii Life for the successful and amazingly fast sale of our home in Poipu, Kauai. I remember when we first met, after I'd seen the Hawaii Life website, and your confidence that the house would sell a lot faster than one might expect. Considering how difficult the market was in 2010 for the $2.0 mil+ category, I definitely credit the combination of the great customized website for our property + the excellent counseling and advice to me + the outstanding representation at the house to work with the prospective buyers as THE REASONS why we were able to get to the closing table before the end of the year. The fact that we had three legitimate offers within 4 months when most of the market was dead says a lot. We had many comments about how professional and effective the website was, and I can honestly say that the combined insight of the whole team working on the house not only pushed the sale forward but was, from the seller's perspective a very good experience.

What your combined efforts did, in my opinion, was generate very positive buzz about the house that translated into buying urgency -- that was the key. Add to that the fact that all the interactions necessary to massage a deal into form were done with experience, insight, and finesse and therein lies your unique competitive advantage! Our wishes for a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year, and thanks again for helping us sell our home so quickly in such challenging times!”  -Michael St. Lawrence, Bestselling Author of If You’re Not Out Selling, You’re Being Out Sold

Seasoned Investors

“As a real estate investor for 21 years, I have worked with dozens of realtors. Tiffany Spencer is at the top.

enthusiastic and fun to work with

“Tiffany Spencer is simply the best RE agent we have ever worked with. She knows every part of the Island and represents her clients with the highest integrity. She is enthusiastic and fun to work with. When we bought our home she followed up on every detail and we would highly recommend her to both buyers and sellers.” -Tom and Debi Fairbanks



“Ben was wholly the reason why we were able to close on our North Shore property. His negotiation skills and local knowledge secured the deal for us. Ben's communication and attention to detail allowed us to obtain our Hawaiian dream!” -Bought a home in 2013 in Wailua Homesteads, Kilauea, HI


Two agents working together = powerful advantages

“Ben Welborn and his real-estate partner Tiffany Spencer did an excellent job of listing and selling our home in 2017. I was particularly impressed by their teamwork and expertise. Two real estate agents working together for you can have powerful advantages, Ben's and Tiffany's skill sets mutually  balance, and communication is seamless. Ben is tech savvy and oversees their web presence, such as using Dropbox to keep all your property's relevant documents updated and accessible. Overall, my wife and I were amazed at how smoothly and successfully they completed the sale. We recommend them in the highest possible terms.” -Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Kapaa, HI


knowledgable of zoning and permitting

“Ben is a true professional that I have recommended many times to friends and colleagues. He has represented me in three transactions and the experience has been very positive. Ben provides more than just representation; his knowledge of zoning and permitting is extremely valuable. He's also very personable and fun to work with.” -Winston Welborn


A Breath of Fresh Air

“Tiffany was a breath of fresh air. She was always there when I needed her and was battling with us to find the right place for the right price. I loved how she had our best interest in mind throughout the entire process. She also knows her market so well (really important in Kauai) that we worked  really well together. Couldn't recommend her enough honestly and I've worked with quite a few agents over the years.” -Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Princeville, HI


Honest and Trustworthy

“Ben was incredibly helpful during the purchase of our very first property. He offered great suggestions before, during and after the purchase and even led us to an AMAZING architect who designed our dream home. As first time home buyers/builders it was nice to work with someone who we felt we could trust and look to for honest advice.” -K. Zietz


very quick to respond

“Ben Welborn was very professional throughout the entire process or our real estate transaction. He was very quick to respond to all of our questions. I have already recommended him to others. He made a very complex international move much easier for us. He is also very knowledgeable about land use and zoning in Hawaii and is a definite asset for anyone considering a detailed real estate sale or purchase.” -Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Kilauea, HI


'A' Team

“'A' Team – GoodListeners / HighCharacter / Committed / Available / Responsive / Energetic / Tireless / Dedicated. My wife & I met BenWelborn/TiffanySpencer by chance on a visit to Kauai walking into Hawaii Life in Princeville. We fell in love with the area and access to North Shore activities, and were  interested in learning about lot/land purchases and what opportunities were available. A lot would allow us to build something of our own, rather than the "cookie-cutter" tract homes in Southern CA. Ben/Tiffany listened to us and spent time with us to offer advice and answer many questions. Over the course of the next year, Ben/Tiffany would take our calls and return calls answering any questions we had. Availability & responsiveness was top-notch, regardless of the purchase price. Transaction was seamless. Ben/Tiffany offered numerous contacts (lot loan, landscaping, tree-trimming, etc.) due to local knowledge. And continued support after (review conceptual drawings) due to interest in design/architecture/community.” -R. Manship


Bought our dream home

“Ben helped me find our home in Kauai in 2009. We had been looking for 4 years together and he'd never pushed me on anything. When 2009 hit, he knew exactly what was on the market, how to make a great offer and how to negotiate from there.  We ended up buying our dream house at a great price and have never looked back. I've recommended Ben to a number of my friends who have all been happy with the service he's provided.” -Bought a Single Family home in 2009 in Kilauea, HI



simply unparalleled

“Exceptional broker, exceptional person! From the very beginning, I explained to Ben in detail the kind of property I was hoping to find. I told him that much of what I was looking for was a lifelong dream, and that I realized it may not exist, but that I was hoping he could help me to find something close to it. In short, this man made my dream come true, and more. You are lucky if you have the opportunity to work with him. He is simply unparalleled. A Huge Mahalo to you, Ben! We are forever grateful.” -Bought a home in 2019 in Kilauea, HI

A Seamless Experience

“We appreciated Tiffany’s savvy, creativity, guidance, and hard work during the process of selling our home. What could have been a tough and emotional undertaking ended up being a seamless and positive experience. For any real estate dealings in Hawaii we would jump at the chance to work with Tiffany Spencer again.” -Laird Hamilton & Gabby Reece


made the house buying process easy and fast

“From the first phone call to closing on our Hawaiian home, Ben and his partner Tiffany made the house buying process easy and fast. Their superior knowledge of the island, unsurpassed experience, and excellent customer service guided us through this stressful purchasing process. Ben was always available and gave honest and sound real estate advise. Tiffany went out of her way helping us find a dog friendly rental property while we were waiting for our house to close. I highly recommend working with Ben and Tiffany on any Kauai property sales.” -Bought a Single-Family home in 2019 in Kapaa, HI

Happy Buyer, New to Kauai

“I was new to Kauai and really wanted to work with someone who was professional, trustworthy and had super integrity. I did a lot of homework, and Ben's name came up over and over. I can't tell you how fortunate it's been to have him help me find my dream home...for a dream price!

Have you ever worked with half-hearted, lazy, fee-focused agents that you suspect are pushing you to spend your money as quickly as possible? Ben Welborn is the exact 180-degree opposite. He always had my best interests front and center, was incredibly hardworking, detail-oriented, a great negotiator, and knows the market cold. I've worked with many realtors in the past, on both coasts of the mainland. Without a doubt, Ben's the best of the best!-Wendy Zachary

follow up is incredible and it continues post-sale

“We came to Ben with a wildly challenging wish list. His lifetime on Kauai and deep knowledge of the neighborhoods as well as the people were incredibly valuable to us. Ben took the time to get to know us - he is a great listener. When we found the home we wanted, Ben and I worked together to secure it at a price that was a win-win for all. Ben also brought in experts in every area necessary to make sure our home was sound from top to bottom. During every single step in the process, Ben went way above and beyond the call for us. His follow up is incredible and it continues post-sale. He is by far the best agent we have ever known and it's not even close.” -Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Kapaa, HI

Stress Free Transaction

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Tiffany Spencer. She is the consummate Realtor. She made what is normally a very stressful, arduous task an easy & enjoyable event for us. We have completed numerous real estate transactions and have never encountered a Realtor who has worked as hard, or who has gone the extra mile the way she did. She is absolutely amazing. We can’t thank her enough for helping to make our dream a reality. We highly recommend Tiffany to anyone.”  -Warren & Sharon Muise


fun, kind, courteous and funny

“Our family has been investing in resort-located real estate for thirteen years, in four different locations. Ben Welborn is among the strongest brokers I have ever worked with. Our north shore transaction involved the need for a view protection easement, introductions to neighbors and a local architect and builder, and price negotiations with a seller who was overly emotional at times. Throughout the process, Ben maintained a sense of humor, there was no stress, and he was fun, kind, courteous and funny throughout the process. He is also comfortable allowing a strong-willed buyer to reject properties quickly that are not a fit, but willing to tell me "this one you need to look at" when I was dismissive, and it turned out, he was often right. We will use Ben again on our sale and our next north shore purchase.” -Bought a home in 2018 in Kilauea, HI

marketing and communication skills are second to none

“Having a personal relationship with many fine realtors on Kauai it was difficult to make a decision on who to list with. In a highly competitive market Tiffany excels in many ways. Tiffany is friend from 2002 and is the true embodiment of Aloha Spirit. When it came time to list it was Tiffany all the way. My house would be a difficult sale due to the fact that it was formerly a long-term rental and had some deferred maintenance issues to deal with. Tiffany’s marketing and communication skills are second to none. The offers soon started rolling in but due to condition of the house, it fell out of escrow three times. Tiffany stuck it out and through her professionalism we finally found the right buyer for the house.”  -Sold a home in 2018 in Princeville, HI

Confidence & Experience

“Ben has been a reliable confidant in my many purchases of investment grade real estate on Kauai. I would readily recommend him to anyone seeking real estate representation. He is seasoned beyond his years.” -Mike Hurtt


Professional Endorsement

“It is always a pleasure working with Ben Welborn, his full understanding of the real estate market gives his clients a broad view of what to expect. He handles his clients with utmost respect, professionalism and kindness and makes their experience a joyful one.” -Lisa Ledesma, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage

excelled with responsive communication

“My experience with Ben Welborn, was absolutely perfect! He has a wealth of knowledge of the real estate market on Kauai. He excelled with responsive communication, and guidance when performing my due diligence for a potential remodel on my property. I would highly recommend Ben Welborn, for any of your real estate needs!” -Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Kilauea, HI

Thorough & Enthusiastic

“Tiffany Spencer is a fantastic real estate agent. She is not only enthusiastic, she knows the market completely and she knows how to get you into the right home. When we bought our home she followed up on every detail to make sure everything was perfect. She is simply the best.” -Tom and Debi Fairbanks. CEO VECA Electric & Technologies


Local Knowledge & Incredible Work Ethic

“Tiffany is a great asset to have on your side in any Kauai real estate transaction. She's well connected, has intimate knowledge of the marketplace and has an incredible work ethic. She is also very detail oriented and always willing to roll up her sleeves to address/surmount every issue that might arise from beginning to end of a transaction. On top of it all, she's a sincere and positive person, with whom it's always a pleasure to deal. We’d highly recommend her.” -Jason Sloane & Embeth Davidtz


Valuable Market Knowledge

“Ben has been a pleasure to work with. He knows the market place well and continues to provide timely advice as market conditions change.” -Alex Kaplinsky, Managing Partner, Solution Set


above all real estate professionals

“Ben Welborn has worked with me on a couple of real estate transactions in Hawaii. I have real estate holdings in 4 other States and I have to say I would put Ben Welborn above all real estate professionals I have worked with. His knowledge, his attention to detail, his attention to us is unmatched in my experience. We had faced some very challenging situations involving multiple governmental agencies and Ben was there every step of the way, providing us with advice, guidance and all the information we needed to complete the transaction. I would highly recommend Ben Welborn to anyone looking to purchase real estate in Hawaii.” -Bought a home in 2013 in Kalihiwai, Kilauea, HI


thoughtful and caring

If you want a local person who is thoughtful and caring then look no further. You won’t find a more knowledgeable person of the island with the best spots for finding a home. I recommend Tiffany to anyone and everyone without hesitation. I have complete confidence in her ability to negotiate on your behalf. She helped me to both purchase and sell a property in Princeville that only she had access to and could accommodate due to her unique experience.”  -Bought and sold a home in 2005 in Wailua Homesteads, Kilauea, HI


First time Buying land and building a home

“My husband, Jason and I were looking to purchase our first home. After working with another realtor without much luck we approached Ben Welborn for help and advise. He generously outlined several options, including purchasing land and building a home. We decided to take his advice and began looking for land. Ben was our realtor, and got us an incredible deal on our dream property. He guided us throughout the purchase, planning and construction process, representing us and helping us all along the way. Buying land and building a home was the best financial decision we ever made and we could not have done it without Ben. We are forever grateful for the time, attention to detail, tenacity and thoroughness he brought to the entire process. We would recommend him to anyone who is looking to purchase a home or land on Kaua`i.” -Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Princeville, HI


smooth and easy transaction

“Tiffany Spencer sold my family home in Hanalei. She made what could have been a very transaction smooth and easy. She is awesome and I would recommend her to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home in Hanalei.” -Caridyn Colburn


Smart and Hardworking

“I am a pretty tough case on Agents. I've done quite a few transactions over the years and Ben is smart, hard working, and a real Kauai expert. I was working with another agent on island prior and the difference was massive. With a unique localized market like Kauai, you really need someone who  knows the business and environment. He does. Use him.” -Travis Lyman


Our vacation rental has been a huge success

“We contacted Ben Welborn from our home in California because we wanted to buy a place in Kauai as well because it has called to us for many many years. We trusted Ben's knowledge of the local Kauai market and his knowledge of Vacation Rentals because we were buying for ourselves but also to rent our home out when we are not on the island. Some areas of Kauai don't allow TVR's and he was helpful in discerning those areas to us. Ben was so fun to drive around with and explore the different options we had to buy. He took us on little side trips to see special areas of Kauai and share his person stories of life on the island. We did end up finding a place with Benny and he made our escrow a breeze and filled us in on all the slightly different details in Kauai real estate deals. We love our home and are currently working with Ben on searching out another gem like the one we found. Our vacation rental has been a huge success and we are so grateful for Ben Welborn in helping us achieve our island dreams.” -Ema Schulz


a deep understanding and knowledge of Kauai

“I have known Ben for many years, both personally and professionally. He has contracted many sales and purchases for me over the years. Being raised on Kauai provides an advantage to all his clients by giving a deep understanding and knowledge of Kauai and the neighboring islands. Ben is extremely thorough and detail oriented. He is trust-worthy, loyal and honest. I would highly recommend Ben Welborn as your agent.” -Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Hanalei, HI


utmost level of professionalism

I have worked with Ben as both a client and as an architect. In both capacities, Ben has always maintained the utmost level of professionalism. As he helped me find a property of my own, it was great having Ben in my corner in negotiating the sale and guiding me through the purchase process.” -J. Kegle


Happy to help

“I have been working with Ben since 2009. We have done three transactions. He is as honest and detailed as any realtor I have ever worked with. But it didn't then there. Whenever I have needed advice or information that  pertained to a property, a home or even getting to know the community he was very helpful and happy to do it. I have recommended to others and they have all been happy. I would definitely recommend him again!” -Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2009 in Anahola, HI


Knows details of Land Use

“Ben was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with our purchase. He is professional and knows the details of land use in the area which is very important.”  -Skylar Peak


far reaching connections

Ben worked diligently to help sell my house. His local knowledge, far reaching connections and attention to detail and follow through make him an awesome agent.” -Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Hanalei, HI


In the Know about Kauai's North Shore

“Ben was so helpful during our first home purchase. He's very familiar with the community and all the specific details around each area of the North Shore where we had been interested in purchasing. After discussing our options we decided to go with a lot purchase in Princeville. It was a quick process. Ben made sure everything was squared away quickly and professionally! He went out of his way to recommend an architect who went above and beyond creating our dream home. We broke ground last month and are looking forward to the completion of our new home this winter. Highly recommend Ben!” -K. Fulp
