Meet Carole

Let me introduce myself, Hi I'm Carole Benson,

I enjoy meeting new clients and helping to find just the right home for them. It is easy to sell clients a home here because I believe so strongly in the many positive qualities that Cedar Rapids has to offer.

In addition to my realtor?s license, I have also earned my broker?s license, so you can rest assured that I am properly trained, and have a thorough working knowledge of Cedar Rapids and its home market. Although, I've been doing relocation for several years, I've recently become a Certified Relocation Specialist in Prudential Destination Services, Marketing Assistance and Relocation Inventory. These relocation certifications show my commitment to provide the best service to my clients and customers. I have tracked my sales for the past few years and I am pleased to say that ninety-five percent of my business comes from satisfied client referrals.

I can assure you that I will do my utmost to make your transition to Cedar Rapids a pleasant and enjoyable one. My clients often say to me that I must enjoy what I?m doing because it shows. I also believe that my responsibilities to you do not end at the time of the real estate closing; instead, the client/realtor relationship continues as Ruhl&Ruhl REALTORS and I offer the finest customer service available and we follow through with any assistance that you find necessary.

I am willing to provide tours, assist with home buying/selling needs, research the financial market for the most competitive rates, and assist you in obtaining a suitable mortgage. I find that relocation can be very stressful for clients so it is my primary concern to see that your move and home acquisition will be as stress-free as possible.

I have been married to my husband, Darwin, for 51 years and he still continues to be my best friend (and I must say can make a delicious omelette).  I am blessed to have two sons and three grandchildren.  I love spending time with my grandkids and laughing at their antics.  As someone who has lived and raised a family in Cedar Rapids for forty years, I am sold on this community and the surrounding areas, and my job as a REALTOR is, quite literally, to sell others on my community. Let me share with you why Cedar Rapids is a wonderful place to live.  Let me show you around my city.
