2011-2014 Portland Monthly FIVE Star Award Winner


Buying or selling a home can be either a stressful experience or an amazing one. To make it an amazing experience, I believe you should have not only a trusted realtor, but a friend who shares the same character and principles as you. While each agent defines success differently, my success is based on lifelong client relationships and referrals.
 
I grew up in the Eugene area where I was raised to value great work ethics, personal integrity, professionalism and friendliness. I was extremely lucky to have had such a wonderful childhood full of important lessons and direction. By having cousins and grandparents a filbert orchard away, I realized the significance of family life and simplicity. I was also an avid soccer, tennis, and volleyball player. Through my athletic achievements, I was taught teamwork and dedication. Education was always a priority in my family as well, and even after my scholastic years, I'm still trying to learn something new whether it's in my field or not.

My father is a General Contractor and growing up on his job sites made me comfortable and knowledgeable around residential building. After high school, I started college with the intent to acquire my teaching license. I planned to teach during the school year and build a home during summer vacations. Of course plans change and after graduating from Portland State with my Bachelor of Arts, I opened a tanning salon in John's Landing (Portland) instead of going to graduate school.

Since 2006, my family and I have operated a successful tanning and airbrush business. I believe we surpassed the normal 1-2 year mark of failed businesses because of our commitment to our clients. Our consumer's reviews have led us to obtain Best of Citysearch 2007-2011, 2013, 5 Time Best of Portland 2008-2012, Portland's Premier Airbrush tanning of 2009-2011, Talk of the Town 2009-2011, Yelp 2008-2010, AND bask was placed in one of the top 250 tanning salons in the nation for 2009! By having systems in place, ACTUALLY CARING about our client's skin and wellbeing, by consistently maintaining an impeccable facility, and boasting a reputable airbrush service, we have helped our little baby grow into a thriving, competitive business.

Significantly, I carry these same skills into my real estate career. While it takes a village to raise a child, this also pertains to making my client's dreams of owning a house come true. I have a valuable team of mortgage lenders, a residential and commercial real estate lawyer, designer/stager, builder(s), photographer(s), and everything in between. When I need them, they are there to help guide towards our final objective.

I just love houses, their "uniqueness" and the opportunities that owning them provides. Real estate has given me the opportunity to pursue my personal passion. Call or email me anytime for personal, professional and friendly help, or advice, on any of your real-estate needs.


I look forward to hearing from you,

-Ashley

      Showed home in 2012 in Glen Echo, Gladstone, OR 97027.
      Ashely was very detailed in what we were looking for in a home. We needed something specific, and she showed us alot of homes. We placed a bid on a house and it didnt appraise for the amount, and the sellers wouldn't come down, so back to the drawing board we went. We looked for a couple of months. We were about to settle and she nudge us to look at one more home before we made an offer on the one we were going to settle for. Well I'm glad we listen to her, because the house she wanted us to look at happened to be the one! She never gave up on helping us find our forever home.  MoreLess

      Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in West Linn, OR.
      I highly recommend Ashley as your real state agent, she has an excellent knowledge and expertise of the area, if you need something she always has a resource to solve any problem you might have. She really listen to your needs and translate them to the negotiation table, always looking for your satisfaction. She sold our mother's house 2 weeks after putting the house on the market. It was a wonderful experience for me and my family to work with Ashley. She easily gets 10 stars. Thank you Ash for all your hard and great work. Goris's family.  MoreLess

      Showed home in 2014 in Harmony Point, Happy Valley, OR 97086.
      I got Ashley’s name from Zillow. It was luck, not that I picked her from reviews. Ashley is a very special person, not just an ordinary realtor. Once you have her as your realtor, she is 100% on your side. She understands what her customer wants, and always works toward her customer's satisfaction.

      I am a strange person that 99% of realtors will not have patience to work with me. I am very picky and never be able to settle down with anything. A young guy realtor from Vancouver (l searched Vancouver WA before), simply blew me away by saying that I wasted his time. But with Ashley, since last April, we have looked at more than 50 houses, and also missed many good opportunities because of my chasing perfection. Ashley never was mad at me. Some houses I undervalued which I regretted, but Ashley never argued with me. She just smiled, "well, we just keep looking then." I have to point it out, she contributed her time and gas to go out on trips with me, but I did not get to buy the properties that she showed, not just 10 times, not even 20 times, but more than 50 times and all year round. I remember last winter, the weather was so cold that she was shivering in the cold wind while showing me some properties, and helping me write an offer. Although I finally did not win the chance to buy the property, to be honest, I appreciate her personality so much, and often feel ashamed that I cannot do anything better to repay her. Such a nice personality really takes a long time to grow. Ashley grew up in a builder’s family. She herself is also very knowledgeable in construction. She just recently completed building a street of dream house mostly managed by herself. She has advised me not to buy some properties because of poor quality or even because of views of apartments. She has a good taste and gives inputs. That’s so different from money hunger harsh rush quick pusher real estate agents nowadays. Compare to them, Ashley’s personality is more classic. Anyone who can be Ashley's customer is a blessing, and definitely not something you can get elsewhere as you wish. Ashley is a unique professional and sweet person that you will love to work with, and never forget even after the business is over. Working with her, you not only will be happy buying a good property you want, but also be pleased in the search process with Ashley. And most importantly, you get an excellent service from such a nice and knowledgeable agent. If I ever need to buy or sell real estate properties again in Oregon, I will love to have Ashley be my agent only.
