Professional Experience

Ben Marcus joined the CBRE Oakland office in 2003 focusing on investment sales of multifamily and retail properties along the I-80/880 Corridor. Ben’s thorough understanding the leasing, operations and financial aspects of multi-housing and retail properties, along with his diligent work ethic and “deal creation” philosophy, bring benefits to each client he represents.

As a landlord and investor himself, Ben brings each client relationship extensive personal and professional knowledge of the East Bay real estate market. His extensive network of contacts – cultivated over years of active and aggressive sales in the region – means that he can reach potential buyers and sellers quickly and efficiently. Ben’s in-depth knowledge of lenders, brokers and contractors, as well as real estate transaction from start to finish, is what underscores his personal commitment to each and every client.

A Berkeley native, an alumnus of the University of California, Berkeley, and a licensed attorney, Ben employs for each and every client the full spectrum of marketing, personal outreach and communications strategies on every sale. It is this consistency and performance that earned Ben the CBRE Oakland office "Rookie of the Year" award in 2003 and consistent success thereafter.
