Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Baltimore, MD.

Five months have passed since Ashley sold our home in Towson, Md and the debt that we owe her has been difficult to express, and obviously overdue. I have traveled the world for business and interacted with professionals at the highest level, but never have I encountered a professional whose skill set so ideally matched their profession. Logically, if we accept that it's at least possible to be the best in a given field then it's fair to wonder who that would for realtors. I would suggest that Ashley Richardson, of Long and Foster is that person. If I list some of the ways she's unique and superior I might be providing other Realtors inside information, but really it wouldn't matter. Some might even be smart enough to do what she does, but then they'd have to be willing to sacrifice all their free time, work for their clients 24-7, send emails at 1am, handle a hundred personal touches, personally, promise a great deal and then deliver on every promise. Even though everyone wants to be successful, very, very few people in my experience are willing to work hard enough to be the best. Ashely is also highly intelligent, a superb communicator and marketer and so plugged into the community she lives and works in that there is no problem that can arise (and there were plenty of hurdles in our deal) she hasn't dealt with before, or anticipated. Whatever the issue, she knows someone who can fix your plumbing, clean the mold from your attic, re-certify your termite inspection, vent your roof, re-mediate your radon...and they will absolutely take her calls and show up. Usually the next day, regardless of what it is. You want that kind of clout, influence and class on your side. Ashley sold 70 houses last year. 70. That's about a house every 5 days. She's up front about that, but without a trace of arrogance. You therefore understand that you're not her only client, but in practice, she'll make you feel like you're the most important. She always stays in touch, even when the action is slow she doesn't hide out. Instead she keeps your spirits up. shares her marketing plans, evaluates your space throughout the process and offers her insights and advice. TAKE ASHLEY'S advice. Every once in a great while we get to interact with someone with a superior intellect and on those happy occasions, you really can share the load of countless decisions and feel like you are getting the best advice. All this commentary is highly subjective, I know. But here's something more tangible to support my praise: We listed our house with a different agent initially. Very nice person, and someone who seemed to be big in the neighborhood. Three weeks passed and we had NO idea why buyers weren't responding to our house. We were no wiser and we were running out of time. We got the information we needed after the first couple saw our house once Ashley had listed it. How was this possible? Ashley had gotten their Realtor on the phone WHILE THEY WERE STILL IN THE CAR and she literally interrogated them, in a nice way, about their thoughts on our house. She interviewed them (and EVERYONE else who saw the house) through their realtor. She'd ask the question, the realtor would put down the phone, get the couple's response and tell Ashley. Who does that? Not I previous realtor, I can tell you that. Ashley's marketing approach, the quality of her materials and the admirable resources of her long-time staff are unique. Bare in mind that our previous realtor was very strong in the neighborhood but the difference in the quality of material, substance of content and the well-thought-out rationale behind her approach were like night and day. I know this is a very long review, but it's also the last one I'll ever be in the position to write in which I can unequivocally say: Ashley Richardson is the best, lights out, end of story. List with her, follow her advice and you will sell your house and move on with your life. Finally, it was a pleasure to work with such a fine ethical person.

Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2011.

Ashley listed our house for sale and showed us numerous houses to buy. Ashley is the epitome of a professional real estate agent. She has extensive knowledge of the Baltimore residential real estate market, and understands the broad range of issues that should be considered in buying or selling a house. She has keen negotiating skills. She is diplomatic, reliable, has high ethical standards and is easy to get along with.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $450K in Baltimore, MD.

We chose well when we chose Ashley to help us relocate to Towson from the West Coast. Her expert local knowledge was essential for us. We were in constant communication for months as we sifted through potential homes, schools and communities. She sent extra video and photos from open houses. She met and toured homes with one of our friends to assess if properties were worth our limited time when we flew out to house hunt. When we did fly out, we looked at 15 properties over 2 days. We found a great house we love and we got a great price. Even after we purchased, Ashley helped out with recommending painters and flooring guys. Ashley is smart and professional, thoughtful and funny, a true pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend her to anyone.

After working with Ashley it was hard to think of working with anyone else. She has a great marketing strategy and has demonstrated an incredible attention to detail that exceeded our expectations.

I would recommend Ashley's assistance with selling your home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $450K in Baltimore, MD.

Great service . . . . helped us to stage and sell our house in Towson in 2009 and purchase a condo in Mays Chapel . . . settled on the same day, then rented back our house for ten days which greatly simplified the move. Made the home inspection and financing process go smoothly. Took over our Zillow site and added great pictures.
