Buckhead Real Estate Agent

Buckhead REALTOR® - Ben Hirsh

Buckhead Realtor Ben Hirsh is passionate about helping families find their dream home in Buckhead. His drive and work ethic fuel his tireless pursuit of excellence. The Atlanta Realtors Association named Ben the #1 Individual Realtor in Atlanta in 2018 and 2019, and he is consistently among the top real estate agents in Buckhead.

Forging his own path – in life and in business – has always been a part of Ben’s DNA. As a child Ben had a love for adventure and dreamed of seeing the world. At the age of 18 he sold his established landscaping company to a competitor and set out to travel the world. His excursions led him to more than 40 countries, trekking to the Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal, floating down the Mekong River in Cambodia in a dugout canoe, diving in the Coral Sea, and driving with a random assortment of backpackers across New Zealand, Australia, and Africa.

When Ben returned from his travels he put this same focus and passion into becoming the best real estate agent in Buckhead. Although Ben is not originally from Buckhead and had no connections to the community, he saw that Buckhead offered outstanding natural beauty and the best lifestyle in the Southeast. He believed that hard work and great marketing could propel him to the top, and it has.

Ben has been named one of the 500 Most Powerful Leaders in Atlanta by Atlanta Magazine for 5 years in a row.
