In a landmark real estate transaction to kick off 2024, Buckhead real estate broker Ben Hirsh has sold a home on Knollwood Drive in Tuxedo Park for $9.5 million. The all-cash deal closed on January 17th in a private transaction in which Hirsh represented both the buyer and seller. This off-market sale tops the highest sale of 2023 (which was also brokered by Hirsh), and is a testament to his ability to handle high-value, luxurious properties discreetly and efficiently.
The sellers, Andy and Lindsey Capps, are no strangers to big real estate deals. Andy is the CEO and Co-Founder of Buckhead-based RESICAP, a large real estate development and services firm that develops and manages thousands of build-to-rent homes throughout the country. When reached for comment they said: “Ben has been our agent for years and we have been nothing but impressed. His deep knowledge of the Buckhead market is tremendous and his extensive connections make him the ideal agent to work with. He managed our most recent off-market sale with complete professionalism and exceeded our expectations yet again.”
A unique estate
The home is situated on 1.8 acres and has over 10,000 square feet of living space. The Capps worked with William T Baker to design the home, and Shaba Derazi completed construction for them in 2019. Lindsey worked closely with Dana Lynch Design on the interior, and the result was a masterpiece. Luxe Magazine had the following to say about the home when they featured it on the cover in 2022: “Infusing a contemporary aesthetic into a traditional home takes skill, vision and a substantial helping of resolve. Fortunately, one Atlanta couple was steadfast in their desire to create a family-friendly residence whose clean lines wouldn’t feel out of place alongside its stately Buckhead neighbors.”
The new owners has a growing family and a successful B2B business headquartered in Buckhead: “We had such an enjoyable experience working with Ben to find us our forever family home. This was our second time working with Ben over several years and he made the entire process as seamless as possible. He listened to our needs and was able to deliver and show several homes to us, walking us through each one, and spending hours helping us narrow down to our top choice. We relied on him heavily for everything- both big and small concerns; he was always there. Not only was he able to find us our dream house, but he did so in the timeline we needed before our baby arrives, and took stress off our shoulders. We could not have better things to say about our experience working with Ben and would recommend him to anyone looking to find their perfect home.”
Hirsh Nears $1 Billion in Career Sales
This sale starts the year off strong for Ben Hirsh, who was once again the #1 individual real estate agent in Atlanta in 2023, with over $135 million in homes sold. He will surpass the $1 Billion mark in career sales early this year. However, his achievements are not just in sales volume: “I get incredible satisfaction from really listening to and serving my clients.” said Hirsh. “These larger than life sales get most of the attention, but I consider myself an expert on all Buckhead real estate, not just the super high end. I treat each of my clients with the respect, dedication and expertise that they deserve and, ultimately, that creates relationships that grow and last for decades. Those relationships are my measure of success.”
