About Erin

Erin is half of the Benford Team, which first worked for Windermere Silicon Valley Properties, followed by six years at Alain Pinel Realtors, and has now worked in the Willow Glen office of Sereno Group Real Estate since it opened in 2012. She and her son, Jeffrey Benford, are very happy to be with the community-oriented Sereno Group.

Their partnership has been a good combination. Erin has compatible degrees in English and Education from Sonoma State University and the University of San Francisco, a Certificate in Marketing from San Jose State University, the National Association of Realtors CRS designation, Certified Residential Specialist, and has experience with distressed properties. Jeffrey has a degree in Economics from the University of Southern California, has earned his real estate broker’s license, has experience with distressed properties, and has a certification as a property manager.

Together they work with buyers, sellers, and residential real estate investors in Silicon Valley, and through their national professional and referral organizations, send clients beyond the county and state lines. Their experience is varied, including, but not limited to, helping people who are buying their first home, selling to move up or size down, buying or selling residential investment property, selling or buying short sales or foreclosed property, selling trust estates, etc.

With Erin’s broad marketing experience, and a focus on customer service and education, plus Jeffrey’s knowledge and appreciation of market statistics and negotiating, the Benford Team is dedicated to helping clients in all aspects of their real estate needs, from condos to castles.

Erin and Jeffrey are very active in the Silicon Valley community, networking with business professionals.  They are also both active with the Santa Clara County chapter of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, plus support Sunday Friends (a working alternative to ending poverty), and CAA, the College of Adaptive Arts for adults with differing abilities.

With their extensive background and experience, the team comes fully prepared to use their high energy, enthusiasm, perseverance, and attention to detail, to help all clients with their needs.
