Business Description
We are a small, homegrown real estate agency that is passionate about helping people find a home they adore. Our story began more than a decade ago when one of our founders realized serving buyers only was the best path for him and his team.

Today our team continues that single-minded focus with excellent results and a stellar reputation. Learn who we are as agents and people to determine why we are the best fit for your needs.

Like many successful businesses, The Buyer's Agent started as a response to the market and a way to differentiate this real estate firm from others in the marketplace. In 1998, Jon Corbin was fresh out of college working for his grandfather's real estate firm - what they mostly did was build and list their own properties. Jon helped that business grow, but he quickly saw they could not afford to keep up with the big companies in the area.

He soon realized two things; the best solution was not to get bigger, but to find a niche, to try something that no one was doing at that time in the Asheville market. He also recognized that his values and personality were best suited to serve buyers only - the traditional business model of representing both sellers and buyers simply didn't work for him.

He presented the idea to his grandfather, but it didn't fly - his grandfather could not see how letting 50% of the market go could help his business grow. Jon persisted, eventually deciding that he would try it on his own. He created Asheville Home Buyers Services with three fraternity brothers, working out of an office his grandfather provided.

The business grew in spite of the fact that other real estate firms thought they were crazy!

Within two years, Jon discovered an exclusive Buyers Agency franchise in Memphis, TN. He purchased the franchise, complete with the infrastructure he needed. In a short time his firm became one of the top franchises in the system. In 2005 he left the franchise to start his own agency, keeping the name.

By thinking smart and focusing on core values, The Buyer's Agent continues to thrive. The housing market is improving and the lessons learned continue to help Jon focus on what's important: serving clients with impeccable service and single focus.
