    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 also am a very proud Grandpa to one beautiful little girl and two wonderful little boys. 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.

    My Client Testimonials

    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. ~ David Goodwin. Fredericksburg, Virginia.
    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. ~ Abraham Shavin, Jacksonville, N.C.

    Royce's involvement in and dedication to the community is why I contacted him initially.

    Royce Bennet was easy to work with and very accommodating with our work schedules. He informed us of any changes along the way and basically kept the stresses of buying a new home to a minimum. If we ever decided to go through this process again, Royce and Century 21 will be our first pick. ~ Brandon Arias Beulaville NC
    I hired Royce Bennett to be my real estate agent because I had observed his manner and his attention to detail previously. I have known Royce from Rotary for many years, and I knew his work ethic, professionalism, and drive to achieve the highest results would mean positive results for selling my property. Royce's strength is his ability to communicate and work effectively with all people. He has a very positive presence that leads to open and effective communication. I like the way "he tells it like it is!" Royce was extremely effective listing our property. He succinctly captured the positive points of our property and accented them to draw interest. He provided very sound advice about the entire process, from pricing to closing, to me and my wife. I believe he lived up to the Rotary Four Way Test by ensuring both the buyer and seller were winners in the deal. Royce was always quick and accurate in responding to my questions. I greatly valued his advice and recommendations. Royce has built a strong team of professionals behind him. His assistant was wonderful! Royce's assistant took very effective pictures of the house to accent its attractiveness. Her presentation of the house surely helped us sell the house and obtain continuous interest in the sale. I couldn't be more satisfied with the sale. My house sold for list price which indicated excellent price determination and guidance by Royce. His guidance and council on what things to repair or replace was extremely helpful and made a significant difference. Thanks to Royce, I firmly believe the sale of my property was a win-win for both myself, the seller, and the new buyer. That is a great achievement! ~ William Darner, Jacksonville, North Carolina
    Royce offered advice, contacted us immediately as information needed updating and navigated through the interesting circumstances surrounding the sake of the property. Always available and made the process easy. Royce went above and beyond what was expected to get our house sold to include working with contractors to fix things. We were an out of the area sale but Royce kept up with communication, making it feel as if we were right there in town. ~ Roxan McNamee, Arlington VA
    See above comments ~ Sherry Foxx Jacksonville

    Royce and the staff at Champion were always professional and happy to help with our transaction. It was not a typical transaction and required more attention to detail than usual; Royce knew exactly what we needed and how to handle our special situation. Royce was readily available for all our questions and there for anything we needed to get our deal closed. I cannot thank Royce and his team enough for helping us on our new adventure! ~ Flowers on the Move
    I would highly recommend Royce to anyone, whether I knew them or not. Royce was there with us for every detail. He always answered his phone, responded to texts and was proactive in keeping us updated on things, which was very important to us. With all of that and his personal attention to the sale, we had dozens of showings and the eventual buyer within a month of listing. He's a great guy. ~ Jake M., Jacksonville, NC

    Royce Bennett made himself available to our family during our search for the perfect home and was willing to go above and beyond, working around our schedules even on holidays and weekends.

    We have bought numerous properties through Royce and have now sold one property and Royce's knowledge and professionalism has served us well. Royce made the various transactions painless and almost effortless for us, we are amazed at his willingness to go "EXTRA MILE" consistently. Century 21 Champion Real Estate could not ask for a better Ambassador then our Agent and Great Friend Royce Bennett We knew that our property was just one of many properties for sale But Royce Bennett assured us he would make every effort to get our property sold. Royce made good on that promise and I feel I owe Royce an apology because I did not think the property would sell that fast even after having had Royce assist up with our other Real Estate transactions. I will never again doubt Royce's ability to get the job done!!! As far as we are concerned Century 21 Champion Real Estate led by Royce Bennett is the "HANDS DOWN" "A TEAM" in the Jacksonville and surrounding areas Real Estate Market!!! ~ Rich & Lynn Gordineer Richlands NC

    Royce had presented historical average data for time-on-market for homes similar to mine -- 10.8 months. However, mine sold in eleven days. That speaks for itself. ~ Barb C, Charlotte NC
    Mr. Royce Bennett was a very nice man. Mr. Royce was able to show us multiple listings in our weekend visit to see the area. He also sent us listings months in advance, to help us in our selection of what we wanted and the market in the area. Once we picked a home Royce was very honest in all aspects, including his role as a dual agent, as we picked a home from their listings. Royce became a part of our family not just our realtor. From the viewpoint of being a first time buyer Mr. Royce made the experience easy and memorable. I would recommend him to everyone. ~ Ellen Johnson North Carolina
