Ben Kanoy  |  Operations Director

A native of North Carolina, Ben earned his B.S. from Clemson University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. After graduation, Ben brought his educational background to DC in 2006 where, until 2009 he performed tax and accounting services for countless real estate professionals in DC, MD, and VA. While he embodied a love for accounting, Ben longed to be on the other side of the desk. He desired to be a part of the positive real estate experiences his clients told him about during their appointments.

In 2009, Ben left the accounting world and became a licensed real estate agent and joined the Atlantic Coast Connection. Working with buyers and sellers, Ben has flourished and brought a unique brand and vision to the team.

At present, Ben lives in NW DC, but there isn't a corner of the city he can't tell you almost everything about. Be it Capital Hill, Dupont Circle, Logan Circle, The Palisades, Georgetown, Hillcrest Heights, U Street, Adams Morgan, and all places in between, Ben has made it his mission to know everything there is to know about living in DC and he will successfully guide any client to the right home in the right neighborhood.
