Ben Hirsh is passionate about helping families find their dream home in Buckhead. His drive and work ethic have been constants throughout his life, propelling him constantly in the pursuit of excellence. The Atlanta Realtors Association has named Ben as the #1 individual Realtor in Atlanta based on 2018 sales volume of over $79 million. This is the highest sales volume of any individual agent in the 70 year history of the ARA.
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, so at the age of 18 he sold his established landscaping company to a competitor and set out on nearly 2 years of traveling across the globe. 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 hitchhikers 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. Notably, Ben was not from Buckhead and had no connections to the community, he simply saw that Buckhead offered the best lifestyle in the Southeast and outstanding natural beauty. He believed that hard work and ingenuity could propel him to the top, and it has.
He was soon named as one of Realtor Magazine’s 30 Under 30 Top Real Estate Agents in North America, interviewed on NPR, Bloomberg News, CNBC, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta Business Chronicle, and has been featured on the cover of Realtor Magazine. Ben was recently named one of the 500 Most Powerful Leaders in Atlanta by Atlanta Magazine and is the #1 individual Realtor in Atlanta based on sales volume, according to the Atlanta Realtors Association.
