About Ben Floyd
Ben is a native of Coastal VA and has had the pleasure of growing multiple successful businesses right here in HRVA. He currently lives the dream of being married to his best friend/business partner (our wonderful OWN agent @michellefoxfloyd) and is the father to three amazing kiddos. In between adventuring with his family, he spends his free time producing and recording music.
Ben’s favorite thing about Coastal VA is the unique variety it offers between a thriving beach town vibe, a family-friendly suburban lifestyle, and if you need to unplug, you can find a countryside nearby to slow down the pace. Having these options so close to each other makes it one of the most accessible places to live. If Ben had to pick a favorite, it would be venturing out to a local brunch spot and ending up down at the oceanfront for the day.
Growing up around generational entrepreneurs, Ben saw the value in helping people, and the reward of building a relationship with clients. When it was time for Ben to choose college or business, he chose a sales role in the insurance industry at the age of 20 and never looked back. Through his insurance practice, he built multiple partnerships in Real Estate and Lending and learned an extensive amount regarding the process of buying/selling a home. When he met his wife, her impressive knowledge about real estate, including investments, really brought his passion to life. Ben loves that you can be a part of the process to make someone’s dream of homeownership come true and he doesn’t think it gets much better than being a miracle worker.
So Why OWN? Ben joined OWN after experiencing the culture of the brokerage as a whole. After attending events, it was evident that the character and accountability is what sets OWN apart from any other firm. It provided the peace of mind that he could learn from experts who truly wanted to help and felt like family at the same time.
