Ratings & Reviews

A true professional that stands out in an overcrowded field. Michelle has several unique qualities, founded in a strong background of interior design and construction, that lead us to rank her above her peers. Our particular sale was smooth due in large part to her experience and expertise. Specific examples at each stage of the selling process include: honesty in the "contemplation stage of selling" to evaluate the property objectively but with sensitivity to the property as a home, in the pre-listing stage she is uniquely suited to provide advice and guidance on home repairs and staging, in the listing phase she has a strong relationship with her realtor peers as well as an eye for advertising that ensures frequent traffic, and in the negotiation phase she is honest, fair, and realistic in her guidance. In short, you cannot go wrong with Michelle Ashley.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Cedar Park, Philadelphia, PA.

Michelle is a highly skilled real estate professional and a caring people person. She is a good listener and is able to help you manage what can be a highly emotional experience as you deal with the ups and downs of the process. She takes the time to get to know you so that she can guarantee you find a home that you'll be thrilled with. She's bold and assertive while able to effectively communicate with people from various backgrounds.

She goes the extra mile by being extremely detail oriented and excels at negotiating during what can be a stressful process. When you need a pep talk and reminders that it will work out, she will do that. When you need to be reminded to step up, she will also do that. She works hard and will definitely help you find a home that is a great fit! I will recommend her to all my friends!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 in Poplar-Ludlow-Yorktowne, Philadelphia, PA.

I have known Michelle Ashley for years and she is the hardest working agent I have ever met. She also has the highest ethical standards of any agent I have met. In short she cares about her job to a fault. For Michelle work is personal and she is driven to get the job done right. I would trust Michelle in any kind of business deal. She sweats the details and unlike most agents she is also a highly trained design professional who is constantly called upon by large developers to provide all the finishes, fixtures and the like for their huge projects. She is an expert in rehabbing properties and can answer any "what if" questions regarding changing anything about your property to sell or buy. Just hire her as she is a joy to work with and very highly respected in the community. One of the best!  More Less
