About BJ Ward:
My name is B.J. Ward and I’m the Broker/Owner of Comfort Real Estate Services, Inc.
I’ve lived in the gorgeous coastal region of Ventura County my entire life and have yet to come to grips with how fortunate I am to live in this community and experience the quality of life that we are able to experience on a daily basis. This is Paradise!
I graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2003. In 2004 I obtained my broker license and in January of 2005 I decided to open Comfort Real Estate Services, Inc. In our initial year of business we closed nearly $10 million in real estate sales and we’ve been going strong ever since.
In 2009 I was selected as one of REALTOR® Magazine’s “30 under 30”. The magazine chooses just 30 agents, owners or managers under the age of 30 across the nation to feature for their achievements in the real estate field. This honor is a complete testament to the loyalty of my clients and the quality of agents that make up the Comfort team.
In 2010 I was selected to serve on the Ventura County Coastal Association of Realtors (VCCAR) board of directors. In 2011 I became a director with the California Association of Realtors (CAR). Also in 2011 I was selected as the VCCAR Broker/Owner of the Year. Volunteerism and giving back are hugely important to me and the Comfort team.
As the years go on Comfort Real Estate Services, Inc. will continue to grow. We will also continue to strengthen our foothold in the local market. However, the core values on which we base our business will never change and will surely not be compromised. When you work with a Comfort Real Estate consultant you will be represented fairly, honestly and with your best interest at heart. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and our company.
“My wife and I had been looking at properties on our own for months before we met BJ at one of the houses he had listed. We quickly felt that BJ and his company would be great to work with.
Overtime we learned about BJ and what was behind our first impression. He is a local family man, with strong family ties to the area. He graduated from the same local high school as my parents, is university educated and is a talented athlete who led his team to the NCAA Basketball Tournament. It is no surprise that the dedication which led to his earlier success comes to work with him every day which means great things for his customers.
BJ never discouraged out ongoing research of the market, never pushed us, but was always there to assist and guide us through the process. I’m pretty sure that with all our back and forth and indecisions, we are among the most demanding of clients any company could have and Comfort Res provided just what we needed to make the right decision.
BJ and his team worked with us over numerous months as we searched and searched for the perfect home. This one’s to small, the one’s too expensive, let just stay in our current house, can we really afford this? This one has a beautiful yard but this one is in the right location. I would have gotten tired of me, but BJ was always there with a smile to guide us through the maze of our own thoughts and to help us make sense of the myriad choices available to us.
In the end, not only did they find the right home for us, they made it possible for us to keep and rent our existing home, finding just the right tenants who have worked out great.
So, despite my extreme indecision and extremely cautious financial nature, BJ and his team stood by us and truly helped us through this major decision.
They really put the Comfort in Comfort Real Estate Services.
Finally even with all the resources available to buyers and seller these days, we discovered with certainty that there is no substitute for having a knowledgeable caring team working for you, When we finally found that perfect house time was critical and BJ and his team fought to drive our deal through. We now have the room we need for our family and we live in a beautiful neighborhood.
We love our new home! Thank you BJ and Comfort Real Estate Services.” – Jenifer and Greg Yenny
