Honesty. Integrity. Very helpful without being pushy. Hal went above and beyond to hammer out details. The property that I eventually purchased had encroachment issues involving fences. Hal had the encroachment issue resolved in time for the real estate closing date.

Hal, was very pleasant to work with, always looking out for our needs. Savannah was unknown to us so we really needed to find something & had only a short amount of time. We spent a lot of time going all over the town, trying a good fit for us. My husband is handicapped, so that made it a little harder. He helped us fix, plumbing, appliances & even watered plants. Even smaller details like changed door knobs, lite bulbs. Helped to find workers to help with carpet, make hand the shower handicapped.

I can't imagine a more hands on realtor. Hal was with us every step of the way, always making sure that work was done properly to get our house ready to go on the market since we were out of state. He even painted our front door for us! I think he was just as excited as we were when the house sold.

Meg is such an amazing realtor! She helped us to buy our first home. She is kind, patient, looks out for your best interests, and really listens to what you are looking for in a home. You will not find someone who goes any further above and beyond than she does. She truly didn't become just a realtor to us, but a friend and someone who we looked forward getting to go and spend time with when we were looking at homes. We cannot recommend her enough!

Meg is an amazing realtor who helped us so much in our process of becoming homeowners. She took the time to plan our viewing days perfectly by lining up houses, that met all of our criteria, so we weren’t bouncing all around town. She knows the area very well and we greatly appreciated her advice.

Jeff and his office provided never ending patience on the listing and sale of our large home in Port Wentworth. They applied extensive efforts to drive buyers to our professionally run open houses. Jeff and his office are very knowledable of all the ins and outs of the real estate documents and procedures. Their knowledge and great attitude made this sale much easier for us.

Relocating and house hunting with a large family is not easy. We were so pleased with Jeff Welch and the team at Benchmark. Jeff was incredibly responsive and thoughtful in regards to our family's needs and availability to look at homes. Additionally, as a native of Savannah, his knowledge of the area, neighborhoods and history of Savannah was a key factor in helping us to choose our home. With multiple children ranging in ages from 2 to 13, he was always sure to not only show us homes that would meet our family's wide range of needs, but what various neighborhoods/areas had to offer for our family. He took a great deal of time learning what our family wanted and made our satisfaction in our purchase a top priority. We were beyond thrilled with Jeff Welch and the Benchmark team and highly recommend them for anyone looking to buy a home in Savannah.

Jeff was so incredibly helpful during our long home-buying process. He was patient, informative, kind, and imminently flexible. He answered a myriad of questions and provided insightful analysis. He was never pushy or anxious and always acted in our best interest. And as a life-long Savannah resident, his knowledge of the Savannah market was always apparent. I highly recommend him to all!

My wife and I looked to Jeff for his knowledge and expertise in the Savannah real estate market when we were looking for a home as our family was expanding. He was interested in our needs and was responsive to all of our questions. He met with us on our schedule and made sure we understood what needed to be done on our end to get into our home. Jeff showed a genuine concern for helping us find the right home at the right price. I recommend Jeff without reservation to anyone in need of a real estate agent.

Jeff Welch was our realtor several years ago and was so patient when we were so picky. He showed us many, many homes until we found the right one. In the process he was so knowledgeable about potential problems or repairs with the homes we looked at and was able to give us a a realistic picture of the costs of the repairs. It really helped us make a well informed decision. We will continue to use Jeff for any future home purchases because he is trustworthy and reliable. Thanks Jeff!

We live in the Midwest and have made annual visits to Savannah over the past 18 years. The beauty of this area and all it has to offer has given us an interest in the possibility of purchasing a 2nd home there - for personal use or as a rental property. We love working with Jeff! Born and raised in Savannah, he has an all-comprehensive knowledge of Savannah and the surrounding islands. He has driven us through the many neighborhoods, from outlying areas to the historical downtown, and shown us properties ranging from high-end to those needing extensive renovations. His area knowledge, attention to detail, renovation expertise, passion for his profession and professionalism is unmatched.

Jeff was outstanding in his work to sell our house and in finding us the perfect place we were looking for. I had complete trust in all of our communications and interactions during the process of both selling our previous home and the process of buying our new home. He was with us throughout and did an outstanding job of communicating with my wife and I as the process progressed. The entire process happened so fast and seamless and I know that was primarily due to his efforts. I always felt like Jeff had our best interest in mind. He was our advocate the entire time.
I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking to sell your home or buy a new one or both at the same time.

My wife and I have been looking to buy a second home in Savannah. After providing Jeff a detailed wish list, he has shown us many workable options fitting that criteria. Unfortunately, our "financial situation" has not yet allowed us to execute a purchase. Throughout this whole process, Jeff has been patient. We are supremely confident he will find us the right home to meet our needs - he is extremely knowledgeable and truly responsive.

Jeff fully deserves the '5 star ratings' that I have given him in the above categories! He is an absolute expert on Savannah and I find him to be an expert in knowing the ins-and-outs of a real estate transaction. In sum, Jeff is the consummate professional and we trust his judgment explicitly.

Jeff really took his time with us to help insure we found the best home for us and got the most from the sale of the house we were leaving. He wanted what was best for us not just to get a sale for himself. He helped us through a rather complicated property situation in which we had to get two lots combined into one lot before we could finalize the deal. He worked really well with the other agent and introduced to some very helpful and professional loan professionals along the way. We are truly thankful for all of his help!

Jeff has helped our family both buy and sell homes in Savannah and was great to work with! When we sold a home, he was helpful to inform us of what comparable houses in our area were selling for to help determine fair market value for our home. He also made suggestions about what we needed to do (and not do) to our home before putting it on the market. As buyers, he was both patient and enthusiastic and made sure we knew how list prices compared w the market value for the area.

Jeff's attention to detail was invaluable in everything from his listening to what we were looking for to his preparation for our actual buying experience. All happened just as he had prepared us it would. We never felt rushed in the process. He is gifted in viewing properties and how they would be lived in which helped us formulate not only what we wanted in our own home but ultimately what we purchased!
