About Us – Benson Wang
Hard Work, Determination, & Passion – These are the Pillars of Success that Benson Wang Encourages Students to Rely On at His Unique Real Estate School
Unlike some people who grew up in a giant luxurious house, drove a fancy Ferrari and completed their doctors or masters degree, Benson was a very unattractive individual. He started from living in a basement, driving a used Toyota, and barely completed his two-year diploma at a normal college. At the time Benson started his real estate career, he did it from scratch and had nearly no resources.
It takes a certain person to make it in the real estate industry because of its competitive dog-eat-dog nature but some people are meant to work in real estate, even if they don’t know it yet. Benson Wang first began his path to becoming a real estate agent as well as an educator of the industry in 2005 while working as a graphic business manager.
In 2007, Benson Wang changed careers and became a signage consultant and in 2008 he was one of the sales directors to a famous home product wholesaler.It wasn’t until 2010 that Benson Wang actually became a real estate for RE/MAX, Sutton Group West Coast Realty in 2011 and New Coast Realty in December 2012. In 2013, he was ranked in the Top 5 Producers among over 150 licensed agents in New Coast Realty. In 2014, Benson was named to be the vice president of New Coast Realty.
Today, although Benson is not rich, he no longer lives in a basement. He proudly owns multiple properties in less than four years working in the real estate industry.
One of the reasons why Benson Wang has become such a great teacher at his real estate school is that he is one of the few real estate agents who possesses a real estate trading, a rental property management, and a broker (associate broker or managing broker), and mortgage brokage in British Columbia, and residential builder pre-icensing certificates
Benson still actively practices real estate, so he knows the news, trends and newest regulations in the real estate industry.
In 2013, Benson Wang also passed the rental property management exam with a 90% on his first attempt so he is also familiar with the day-to-day role of a rental property manager and offers a fast track program to help UBC students who are interested in branching into that specialty area of real estate.
Benson Wang also holds several distinguished awards and memberships in real estate. In 2011 he was recognized by the Real Estate Board as a valuable team member of the medallion club and as an ASA® Accredited Senior Agent in both 2011 and 2012. In 2012, Benson Wang also passed the exam, met the requirements of the completed deal amount, and acquired yet another professional designation as an ABR® (Accredited Buyer Representative). In 2013, he was also ranked as the Top 5th Producer among over 150 licensed agents in New Coast Realty.
Since opening up his tutorial school in 2011, Benson Wang has helped over hundreds of students pass their real estate, mortgage, and property management exams while instilling in them valuable lifelong lessons about the real estate world. Benson Wang’s reputation is well known in Richmond, Vancouver, Coquitlam, and Burnaby neighbourhoods, especially within the Chinese community as he offers some of his mortgage and real estate courses in Mandarin.
Benson Wang has extensive sales background from a graphic business manager since 2005 to a signage consultant since 2007, and was one of the sales directors for a famous home product wholesaler in 2008. He became a real estate agent with RE/MAX Master in 2010, and changed to Sutton Group West Coast Realty in 2011 until he joined New Coast Realty in December 2012.

He has received Sutton Platinum Award in 2011 and has been recognized as an ASA® Accredited Senior Agent in 2011 and 2012. In 2012, he also passed the exam, met the requirements of the completed deal amount and acquired another professional designation ABR® (Accredited Buyer Representative). He has also passed the rental property management pre-licensing exam with 90% at his first attempt in the beginning of 2013.
