Personal Profile

As a premier real estate agent in Jacksonville, I'm here to provide you with all the resources and information you need to buy or sell real estate. Please use the search box in the upper right corner to search for homes! I work with buyers and sellers in Jacksonville, Hubert, Swansboro, Richlands, Sneads Ferry and the surrounding areas and I've had extensive training in the latest real estate marketing strategies. I'm confident that I can offer you knowledge and tools most other agents can't. Contact me so I can keep you updated on the latest real estate activities in our community and answer any questions you may have.I have been married to my wife, Karen for over 30 years and we have two grown children. Both of them are married and one has moved out of state. I recently became a Grandpa to a very beautiful little girl, Noa. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from North Carolina Wesleyan College and served in the Morehead City Police Department for 12 years before moving to Jacksonville. In 1995, I opened The Shepherd's Shoppe, Christian Book Store. Through the book store, I served retail customers in Jacksonville for ten years. In 2005, I discovered the joy of helping people buy a home. I sold The Shepherd's Shoppe and have since placed my full efforts in building a Real Estate business. In 2010, I sold over 7 MILLION dollars worth of property earning the Masters Diamond Award from Century 21. In order to better serve my customers, I have earned designations as a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR) and a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE). Professionally I served as President(2013) of the Jacksonville Board of Realtors. Throughout my professional career the one common thread has always been service before self. Whether serving in the Police Department, founding a local book store, or serving the real estate needs of our community, I have always loved helping others.

    This is our second time to utilize the services of Royce with real estate transactions and have been very pleased with his performance. This time, he helped us sell our house in a timely manner during a quickly changing market. He is definitely an expert in his field and made the process very smooth. We would definitely utilize him in the future with any other real estate transactions.

    Royce is a good friend and one of the most trusted people I know. I know him to be hard working and dedicated to helping others. You will not find a better person who cares for your needs and works harder toward your goals. The results speak for themselves, house sold second day listed and Royce guided us through closing. Thanks for all you have done for our family! I have known Royce for many years and consider him as family. I trusted him to deposit my check and he is one of the few people I know that I would trust that way. He has my full trust and confidence. A home being the greatest financial investment most families make means you want to be represented by the best. I knew that I was getting the best when I chose Royce.

    He did an excellent job.

    As a real estate investor in Onslow County I have relied on Royce Bennett for about 15 years with multiple real estate projects. He has never let me down and he has given me some great advice that helped me be successful. One time he even talked me out of buying a property which cost him a commission but kept me from making a bad investment decision. For my most recent sale he found the perfect buyer to be on the other side of a win-win contract. He smoothed out all the bumps in the road and we closed 6 weeks after the listing went live. He and his team did a great job for us. We plan to use his expertise and service again real soon. Many times I have referred home buyers and sellers to Royce, and I will continue to do so.
  • Buyer review
    He really went above and beyond. Was very quick with sending contracts, made himself available any time I wanted to see a property, and made me feel like he really cared about helping me find what I want. He came highly recommended by quite a few people and did not disappoint. Very knowledgeable of the area, as well. Very satisfied with the service I received.
  • Buyer review
    I have bought and sold several dozen properties over the years, and I've never had a better broker experience than that which I've had with Royce Bennett. Tireless, attentive, available, and professional, Royce is world-class. He sets the gold standard for customer service.
