Our deals typically take place in the US southeast, but we’d rather not limit ourselves geographically. One constant is we always, without fail, put extensive boots on the ground at the properties we’re considering.
CEO & Founder
Apartmentbuys, LLC founder, Earnest Harbin, has spent his entire professional career focused on Real Estate which has shaped the company’s investment philosophy and attracted him to real estate investing as a viable investment partner that is trustworthy and dependable. A lifelong resident of Georgia, since he was 21-years-old he has been involved with construction and real estate investing. Initially he worked on framing crews, then owned and operated a successful painting company, then worked his way into small fix-and-flips, new home construction, and eventually multifamily investing.
Earnest launched his career in flipping single family homes and progressed into custom home building, with a combined total of roughly 100 homes, where he managed the renovation, ground-up construction, marketing, and sale of properties valued at $150K to $500K. He went on to build his first 75-unit multifamily apartment complex, owning and operating the business for two years prior to its eventual profitable disposition. Since that time, he has transacted property units totaling over 420 doors with value in excess of $20,000,000
Mr. Harbin accomplished all this with no outside investment of any kind but from hard work, tenacity, blood, sweat, and tears!
After divesting of his last hugely profitable multifamily investment in 2015, he took a brief hiatus from investing. He is now pivoting from independent investing to partnering with outside investors via joint ventures and syndication. With his new brand, Apartmentbuys, LLC, he seeks to incorporate others into his goal of building a long-term, scalable model of solid returns for himself and investors by taking advantage of access to capital that is simply unattainable through traditional banks and lenders.
Driving this work is his philosophy and mission to beautify his local surroundings, elevate the quality of life for the community and its residents, and provide above average returns for his investors and partners.
Mr. Harbin has set out to create a culture and philosophy to help others experience the American Dream with a concept called “Rebuild America” with Apartmentbuys, LLC–a value-oriented approach to buying and operating income property.
