Broker / Owner

Larissa Benson

Inspiring Confidence

As Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Legends, Larissa delivers a real purpose-driven impact to the members of
her team. “There are challenges that come with being a Broker. But there are great rewards, too. Those come for
the Broker by seeing agents succeed. You see them reaching goals, find joy, and improve their quality of
life,” Larissa says. “Watching people become more purpose driven and achieve positive results makes me happy.”
As she grew and came of age, Larissa attended the University of Georgia, where she earned a degree in
Marketing, with a minor in French. After graduation, she started her career working for a sports
marketing company. “I thought I wanted to be in corporate America. I lived in Gainesville and working in Atlanta and was
commuting back and forth.,” she says. “It didn’t take long for me to see what corporate life really was
like, and I learned it wasn’t for me.”

Family Foundations

Away from work, Larissa treasures time with her family, including her husband, Drew, and their three
children — 12-year-old, Charlie, 9-year-old, Jack and 5-year-old, Grayson. In her free time, Larissa looks
forward to attending her children’s sports and school activities. At home, she enjoys the mini-farm that
she and her family call home … complete with a variety of animals, including three dogs, two mini pigs
and seven chickens. Giving back is a central part of Larissa. She has been involved with Children’s Miracle
Network for almost 20 years, donating a portion of every closing to the organization. Another favorite group
for Larissa is Kiwanis Kids and its holiday gift-giving event. The entire office “adopts” children in the community
purchasing Holiday gifts for them.

Signs of Success

Today, RE/MAX Legends has 70 Agents. But when it comes to numbers, there’s one that Larissa is
especially proud of. “I’m very proud of the fact that our agents are very successful. In fact, over half of our agents make over
$100,000 a year,” she says. “We are purpose driven and not profit driven. We give people the tools to
be successful. It’s our mission to develop, support and inspire our agents.”
