In 1985, Benyam bought his first investment property and began a successful career as a commercial and residential Realtor. Joining Fox and Carskadon that year he build his firm in the rich Palo Alto market.

He is able to marshal incredible energy toward his goals and sustain this standard to the finish, unifying the team around the core vision and purpose.
