Marx-Bensdorf, Realtors has been serving the Memphis real estate community since 1868. We have developed a sustainable model that demonstrates an appreciation for the client’s sense of urgency without compromising the long view. Our experience is more valuable now than it has been at any other time in our history, and our Memphis realtors are here to serve you.
At Marx-Bensdorf, being different has been a critical component of our success for 150+ years. Founded in 1868 by Max Marx and Herman Bensdorf, two Jewish immigrants from Germany, we have a long history of diverse owners, staff, agents, and clients. We have had the pleasure of employing and serving people from varying backgrounds regardless of age, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, political affiliation, and/or socioeconomic status.
Today, we continue to foster a work environment that celebrates differences. In fact, diversity is at the core of our daily lives. We proudly and carefully abide by Federal Fair Housing Laws and the Tennessee REALTORS® Code for Equal Housing Opportunity. Additionally, we aim to embody the diversity and inclusion goals set forth by the National Association of REALTORS®, whose objective is to “help fulfill the dream of home and property ownership in America.”
We aim for the highest levels of inclusivity in all of our relationships including firm ownership, our agents, staff, partnerships, affiliations, and clientele.
Less than 100 years before our firm existed, our nation’s founding fathers penned the following thoughts on diversity — words that still ring true today:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” -The Declaration of Independence
We recognize that today’s buyers and sellers are real estate savvy. They bring more to the table than they used to. Buyers and sellers are plugged into news and current affairs even to the extent of participating in and shaping the news. They understand how to use the resources available online to determine which home they are interested in buying. They know how to shop for real estate. They get comparables, they ask great questions, and they are connected with other people. We call that smart. We're honored to work with our smart clients, throughout purchases and generations.
Marx-Bensdorf, Realtors has five underlying tenets that support our philosophy and approach to doing business. Each serves as an inspiration to our associates and connects us with our clients and community. We call them "messages." It allows us to personalize our interaction with one another and you to meet your unique set of expectations.
Our clients are increasingly tech-savvy and so are we. Our investments in technology have not been for technology's sake but to improve our ability to serve buyers and sellers.
