I am a native of small-town Iowa and enjoyed a very close-knit and caring community growing up. However, in 1998 my sense of adventure called me to relocate and explore all that Colorado has to offer. I soon met my wife, Ali, a native of Colorado Springs, and in 2004 we moved to Northern Colorado with our young family. My nonprofit career provided me with an opportunity to serve the University of Northern Colorado and Larimer Humane Society, where I worked alongside some of the most dedicated staff and volunteers in the country to deliver the quality-of-life services that we enjoy in NOCO every day. Our family has blossomed in Greeley and Fort Collins over the years and I feel the same sense of community pride and connectedness that I experienced in my youth. It’s because of the people here that we call Northern Colorado “home.” I love to invest in the community and currently enjoy chasing our three boys to their school, sports, and music events. We also enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, skiing, and playing ball whenever we can.

  • To get you where you want to go - on time.
  • To help put you in the strongest negotiating position possible.
  • To address your "pain points" and make the process of buying or selling a home a rewarding and enjoyable experience. 


I understand that a home is much more than bricks and mortar; a home is a place to connect with the ones who matter the most to us, a place to relax and recharge, and an environment that ultimately has a huge impact on our quality of life. Moving and making such a transition requires the utmost care, professionalism, and purpose.

I promise to take the time to really listen to your needs, provide you with any information necessary to help you make decisions, provide you with some structure for the process, and allow you to dictate those decisions. 

It's never too early to start planning. Regardless of the transitional stage you may be in, I would be happy to have a simple conversation that will support you as you explore your next move or investment opportunity.


From the moment Ben stepped into our lives, he hit the ground running and did not stop. The day we decided to start looking, he had houses lined up and ready to go see. Then there were countless nights that Ben stayed up putting the final details into getting us the house we wanted. There were some atypical complications that arose with our purchase. I am 100% sure Ben took the brunt of all the hardships to help ease our minds and make this process easier on us. Even long after business has been completed, Ben is still around! Frankly, the entire group at Windermere was fantastic and we look foward to continued business and friendship with Ben. -Brianna Rodriguez, Evans

Ben was a helpful and detailled agent. As an out of state buyer, I had a lot of questions and needed support in viewing homes remotely. He was always ready to make it happen. I would recommend Ben for anyone buying or selling a home in the area. He knows the neighbhorhoods and can point you in the right direction. -Vickie A., Fort Collins

Ben helped us buy a home in an extremely aggressive market, and he had ideas and strategies that gave us an edge in negotiations. Ben studied our neighborhood and know what to look for to help us make effective offers. He was kind and professional throughout the process, and he went the extra mile to help us navigate the loan and appraisal process. Ben is a skilled realtor that we would recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Northern Colorado. Thanks, Ben! -Todd and Carolyn K., Fort Collins

Ben did amazing work for our family on our recent home purchase. He was kind, knowledgeable, personable, and a joy to work with. Ben took time to explain the process, answer any and all questions we had, walked us through the final contract and got us to closing. I highly recommend working with Ben and his team. -Ryan R., Greeley

Ben was amazing throughout the entire process. From our first phone call, he was very thorough and dedicated a significant amount of time in walking me through the steps of a first time homebuyer. He was also extremely detailed in walking me through the entire contract. The market was quite competitive when I was looking to purchase, so we had to act extremely fast on any home that I was interested in. Ben was always highly responsive and willing to drive over an hour away to check out homes on very short notice. We would chat over the phone daily as we looked at listings, and Ben was able to book viewings of the home for us within 24 hours of the home being listed as well as turn contracts on a very short timeline, which is what you need in a highly competitive market. Ben really knows what to look for in a home and made sure I made the right purchase based on my wish list. Additionally, from contract to closing, Ben ensured that I knew all the steps along the way along with important deadlines. His communication, attention to detail, and passion really made this a much easier process than I had anticipated. You can easily tell that Ben enjoys his job and takes a great deal of pride in his work and his clients. I would highly recommend Ben for anyone, espcially first-time buyers. I am very thankful that I had the opportunity to work with him, and I hope to work with him in the future! Thanks, Ben! -Jordan F., Westminster

Ben was invaluable in helping us through the entire process. He definitely went the extra mile for us and never pressured us one way or the other. He is very knowledgeable about the area and any possible pitfalls in the process. I cannot recommend Ben Barnhart enough. He is totally customer service dedicated. He is the bomb!!! -Jay Spracklen, Drake

Finding a home during a pandemic was different, Ben made it easier It was a pleasure to work with Ben he is professional and patient. If he didn’t know an answer to a question, he’d find out and get back to me promptly. Found a home in location and style I wanted.   -Norma C., Fort Collins

Ben was exactly the realtor we needed since we were moving to Fort Collins and needed a lot of help to understand the town and neighborhoods but more importantly, he was personable and took the time to get to know us and our needs for a new home. Despite challenges of the global pandemic, which became a major obstacle at two weeks into our search, Ben worked very hard, was flexible and was always prepared to ensure our home search continued. Throughout the entire process, Ben was always communicating with us, had great follow-up and a great attitude. We were confident that he had our best interests in mind. and he ultimately helped us find a home in the neighborhood that was just right for us. -Orion & Barbara W., Fort Collins
