Background & Experience:
Ben and his longtime friend, Skip Corn, formed one of the first full-service commercial real estate companies in Spartanburg, Corn/Hines Investments in l986. After Lynn Spencer and Ben joined forces in 1993, Spencer/Hines Properties exploded with the changing upstate of South Carolina and allowed Spencer/Hines to capitalize on a dynamic market with a substantial market share of Commercial Real Estate. Ben is sought after with his knowledge, expertise and integrity by clients.
As a member of many boards and organizations, the Team at Spencer/Hines utilizes Coompassion as one of its CORE Values. Giving back to the community has always been a part of Spencer/Hines vision. As a christian, Ben's favorite verse is Romans 15:13: "May the God of all hope fill you with joy and peace as you trust in Him." Teamwork, Excellence, and Integrity round out the CORE Values.
Please contact Ben on his private, direct line at (864) 542-4777 and allow him to help you in your commercial real estate needs.
