I worked out of town and Ben was there every step of the way to make sure things were on track, to viewings, offers and etc. Being a first time buyer was scarce, and assurance from Ben, I knew it was going to be okay. I am pleased with the home I've purchased. Thanks Ben!


Ben was a great agent to work with as we were selling our house while living out of state. He was very effective and timely with his communication and helped our sale go smoothly. He was always honest and told us the truth. We learned through inspection that our house had some damage from Hurricaine Harvey that we were unaware of, and Ben was great at helping us find and line up the workers that we needed to repair our house. He was available to be at the house when we needed him to be and was great at communicating all the steps of the home selling process. Thanks, Ben!

Paul Manafort, who is now serving a prison sentence, and Kathleen Paul ManafortManafort, his wife, lost the condo to foreclosure earlier this year.
Federal Saving Bank now owns the condo. FSB is the Chicago-area bank that was brought up during Paul Manafort’s trial in 2018 for bank and tax fraud. In May, Stephen Calk, the bank’s former CEO, pleaded not guilty after being charged by prosecutors with providing mortgages for Manafort in exchange for a potential high-ranking job in the Trump administration.

Paul ManafortThis condo will always have a piece of history tied to it. What will that do for its value, only time will tell? What I can say is the condo appears to be somewhat unimpressive, especially when you compare it to Paul Manaforts ex-boss, Donald Trump’s tastes. The condo does boast nice views of the Potomac River through its’ over-sized windows.
The narrow kitchen displays cherry cabinets and quartz counter-tops. The kitchen also contains a sub-zero refrigerator and Wolf cook-top.
While standing at the kitchen sink, Manafort could look out into the living room, giving this condo the open concept.

The home office is decorated with a wall of cherry custom cabinets and bookcases. Manaforts’ home office was searched extensively by the agents of the FBI looking for evidence tying Manafort to Russia.
The master bedroom suite has a large open roomy feel to it with a beautiful chandelier and oversized windows. I am sure Manafort impressed his family and friends by the views from his private balcony off the master bedroom. The double-walk-in closets I sure would be suitable for any successful business person. A glass-enclosed steam shower awaits in the master bathroom, giving a sense of luxury.
The condominium building itself, has a heated pool and gym as well as a dog washing station, porter, and a concierge.

Paul Manafort Under House Arrest Here

Manfort spent his time under house arrest at this condo before the judge sentenced him to jail. The prosecutors were able to show evidence of witness tampering. While Manafort was under house arrest and confined to The Oronoco, Paul Manafort sent an apology to his neighbors blaming Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the press for his unfortunate situation. One can’t help but wonder how he felt living in his multi-million dollar prison. Though I am sure it was far better than his current living conditions.
