You Never Know Who You'll Meet In The Rain: A Transplanted Washington State REALTOR and Her Navy Pilot

The Benjamin Team: Bob & Carolin Benjamin, Gold Canyon, AZActive Rain bloggers Bob & Carolin Benjamin are full time REALTORS in a beautiful corner of northern Pinal County, Arizona called Gold Canyon

Where is Gold Canyon, Arizona?

Located just 40 minutes east of Sky Harbor airport (the one made famous by Paul Harvey to millions of snow-birds,) Gold Canyon is nestled near the west face of the Superstition Mountains. 

Bordered by Arizona State Trust lands and blessed with major freeway access, it's easily accessible.  "Seasonal settlers" from snowy northern states in the USA, and from as far away as Canada and Europe call Gold Canyon home for part of each year.

What the Benjamin Team Brings to the Table

You can read more about Bob & Carolin Benjamin on their Active Rain blog.  I'm just going to tell you that neither member of this duo is your everyday real estate agent!

Bob Benjamin served our country as a combat Navy pilot during the Vietnam era, flying the Grumman A-6 Intruder off the carrier deck of the USS Enterprise.

Gold Canyon Ledger: Carolin BenjaminWhen I read this about Bob, I thought "I can relate to this guy.  His experience and training tell me that he knows how to focus on the task at hand.  He understands mission.  He'll respect my deadlines."  ...and as a lender, I appreciate Bob's MBA in Finance.  So do his clients!

After the Navy, Bob made a career as an executive in the Tourism Industry with Alaska's Princess Cruise Lines.  I like that!  In a destination state like Arizona, wouldn't you want a REALTOR who understands tourism and is able to draw on his experience to market your home the way Princess Cruises markets its Alaska tours?  I know I would!

Carolin Benjamin, a REALTOR in Washington State for ten years prior to moving to Arizona, has 18 years of real estate experience.  In this difficult real estate market, I look for, and rely on experienced professionals to help me make the right decision for myself and my familyThat's Carolin!

Prior to real estate, Carolin was an executive for Mattel Toys.  She's a business writer, and serves today on the Editorial staff of the Gold Canyon Ledger, an Arizona news magazine.

One last thing you should know about Gold Canyon ~ it has a magnificent golf course!
