Having lived in Mildura my whole life, I moved to Geelong for a brief period of time where I started my real estate career. The decision to move back was never a hard one as I love what Mildura has to offer year round and I am grateful that my wife Diana and I are able to raise our two boys Jude and Tommy in such a family friendly environment.
To me, family and friends are everything and I love nothing more than spending time with them whenever possible. I love to go to the gym and while the days of my long curly blonde hair are behind me, I do enjoy letting my hair down once in a while.
I proudly became a Director of Collie & Tierney in 2013, something I have worked so hard for throughout my career to achieve and I have loved every moment of it. I pride myself in providing the best quality service to all of my clients and with my experience in high end properties throughout Sunraysia the results speak for themselves. I believe my vast knowledge of the real estate industry, having worked in property management, commercial management, conveyancing and sales as well as working outside of the region has given me priceless knowledge and an advantage to be able to provide a diverse service to all of my clients.
"Ben’s service was A+++. I have dealt with many real estate agent’s in the past and Ben was the first agent to actually value my time and made feel like I was his highest priority when I am sure he would have been busy with other properties and clients. He was always friendly and helpful and the communication from Ben was fantastic!"
"Both Jennie and myself had an understanding and help from our first meeting. Nothing was too much trouble, always kept in touch. Never having done anything like this Ben explained everything that we could understand and gave us piece of mind and confidence and sold the property in a week, excellent! We would both not hesitate in naming Ben Ridley as a caring, honest and down to earth person to handle any real estate matters. Can't speak highly enough of him. Thank you"
"Ben was a great help when selling my house. He was honest and had a very positive attitude towards his job. I would recommend Ben to anyone wanting to buy or sell their home. He made the process less stressful for me due to his professionalism."
"Ben arranged inspection times to suit the buyers and was always punctual when meeting them. Ben followed up on any queries relating to the property. At all times Ben was cheerful and we enjoyed dealing with him."
"I was very impressed with the experience. Everything was very professional and I loved that I was constantly kept in the loop throughout the process, at no stage was I left guessing what was going on."
