Ben Ottmar


As a lifelong resident of Pacific Grove and the Monterey Peninsula I am honored to be working and raising my family in the same small town I grew up loving. I have been a licensed Realtor® since 2006 and have a sharp knowledge of Monterey Peninsula home inventory and a local network of professional connections to get deals closed smoothly and on time. I am driven by my 4 core values: Integrity, Service, Trust and Commitment. I have partnered with Bay Homes and Estates because they are a brokerage that is fully in line with these core values. I believe that buying or selling a home should be both a professional and personal experience and a Realtor®/client relationship is one that can last a lifetime. Contact me for information about current inventory or a market analysis of your property and experience how I can help bring your real estate dreams home.

In my spare time if i'm not traveling with my family you will often find me at the beach either surfing or fishing.

What Clients Are Saying

Ben Ottmar represented my wife and I for both the purchase of a home in Carmel Valley as well as the sale of another.  Throughout both transactions, working with Ben was a genuine pleasure and our overall experience could not have been better.

When my wife and I were initially interested in viewing local properties the likelihood of actually buying a home felt minimal at best. We were, therefore, reluctant towards recruiting an agent as we didn't want to waste anyone's time. We did eventually reach out to Ben and despite our admissions he would in all likelihood be accommodating our curiosities and nothing more, he agreed anyway. Ben took the time to show us several places and, as these things happen, we stumbled upon our dream property and put in a bid. Over the next few months Ben truly went above and beyond as our representative: Whether it was addressing standard procedure or handling quite atypical matters, Ben shouldered everything while allowing my wife and I complete independence in determining what contingencies and dollar figure we were comfortable with. "I'll do whatever you want," was something Ben told us often. He did indeed.

After purchasing our new home it was time to sell our previous residence and hiring Ben for the job was a no-brainer. Just like before, Ben shouldered everything. With the help of his broker, (James Frangella, who was also wonderful) Ben put together a sales package we were proud of. His attention to detail and work ethic were evident in the quality of his presentations online as well as on paper. Perched up a steep driveway, we knew our house would be a difficult sale but Ben's persistence in hosting open houses as well as his general resourcefulness paid off and we sold our house at near asking price.

I wouldn't hesitate recommending Ben to anyone I know. He and his broker, James, are true professionals, experienced, honest and genuinely good people. You would be hard pressed to find better representation.
