I am proud to call San Antonio home, and even more honored to be a REALTOR® in Military City USA. My father served our country in the Unites States Army. My husband works in medical technology for the Defense Health Agency at historic Fort Sam Houston. So, when it came time for our family to put down roots, San Antonio was an easy decision.
After years traveling internationally as a Creative Director for such notables as Tommy Bahama and Levis, I settled in San Antonio with my family, including our adorable Boston Terrier. The rich, diverse culture of our city is what makes it so special, and the small-town atmosphere is what makes it home. I’d truly love the opportunity to assist you in finding the right property for you to call home.
A Bachelors of Applied Science in Multimedia and degrees in Design afforded me a successful career in the fashion and home industries. My background is in design, sales, marketing and customer service. This encompassed development for retail location planning, products, interior design, advertising campaigns and client relations. My passion is working with people to achieve their greatest expectations. I am dedicated and organized, and I can be entrusted to manage the multifaceted aspects of real estate. Allow me to create a customized plan to sell or purchase a home with a process that will accomplish your goals. I am very familiar with San Antonio, the Hill Country and surrounding areas. So, whether you are moving here, considering an investment property, leasing or relocating out of town, let me be your real estate guide.
I live by the values of service, integrity, professionalism, and commitment, and will ensure that every detail of your real estate process will be administered with the utmost care.

I had the good fortune to meet Jean at an open house she was babysitting for another realtor. What a fortunate bit of good luck for me. Since that meeting 4 years ago she has sold 7 homes for me! She is the definition of a real professional detail-oriented, spot on with the comps and her ability to help with color combinations is the cherry on top. Her past background with design and color coordination helped me get the highest price ever in my neighborhood on 2 occasions! No small task. When we get a property under contract I always ask her whats the other side like meaning is the other agent a pro or incompetent. Her advise is sound and she has great instincts. My only complaint is I think she works too hard but not such a bad thing if she is on your team!! – Marc Zadik
Best Agent I have ever used. – Martha G. Borth
Jean Marie is the most professional and compassionate Realtor we have ever worked with. She made the home buying process seamless. She is absolutely incredible! – Justin Taylor
Jean-Marie Benz was absolutely an amazing realtor and helped us through every single step of our home buying experience. She went above and beyond for my family and me through our whole home buying experience. She not only met all of our needs and expectations, she exceeded them. If you have the opportunity to have her as your realtor, take it! I am active duty military and my family and I got last minute orders to San Antonio Texas, so I was in a hurry to find a home fast. I called JBGoodwin and got connected to Jean-Marie right from the start she was super caring about me and my family's needs. I told her my budget and she stayed within those parameters and didn't try to push me to buy a more expensive house. Long story short she was great to work with and actually found a home for my family and I that was in our budget and exceeded all my expectations. And when it came to closing she fought tooth and nail and got us some really great incentives which we wouldn't have gotten if it wasn't for her. Like I said before you won't go wrong with Jean-Marie Benz her customer service is unmatched. – Jeffrey Jordan
Jean-Marie rocks! She worked it and worked it bringing it over the finish line. – Douglas
Selling your home can be a very stressful time and so you want someone that is very reliable. Without any doubt in my mind, that person is Jean Marie Benz. As an agent, she knew what her duties and responsibilities were and guided us through in the process of selling our home. We followed her direction and our home was sold within 14 days in a neighborhood that usually takes much longer. She is so knowledgeable and trustworthy that she is now our realtor guiding us through the building of our home. We will never use anyone else and have recommended her to everyone we know. I was so impressed with her that she is not a 5 star ----she is a 10 star. – Marth Borth
Jean is very professional and thorough. She gave me great confidence throughout the process. – Jan K. Glenn
Jean Marie is the kindest, most knowledgeable agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is thorough and persistent and was always on top of the tiniest detail that came along. Absolutely wonderful!
– Maria Linkenhoger
Jean Marie is an exceptional realtor. She went above and beyond; continually for this. – john Shaffer
