Ratings & Reviews

I did a previous review for Valerie. My narrative describing her wit, charm and knowledge of real estate sales and a caring lifestyle, quest for justice, and active help for homeless veterans still stand. Her clarity on personal responsibility still stand. She is a woman with a feminine heart that confronts macho attitudes that are hurtful. There is one item different from my last review. Valerie's negotiation skills are off the chart. She is five stars twice over in that area. I know because I am owner of a house that I got for a third less than I was thinking about paying. Thank you Valerie. You are the best.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Merle Hay, Urbandale, IA 50322

She helped me out and showed me couple listings online. She also educated me on different kind of mortgages and what would be best to get. She did a great job and she is friendly. I had to back out on finding a home but I will contact her when I'm ready to purchase.

Valerie is a realtor who looks out for your best interest first and is very proactive. She is an awesome marketer and is extremely creative. We have had Valerie as our realtor two times and will continue to work with her in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Bondurant, IA.

Valerie was extremely knowlegable about every aspect of the buying process, after looking at only a few homes she was able to discern what exactly our taste preferences for a home were. My questions were always answered in a timely manner no matter the time of day. She knew how to push for things that benefit her clients, in our case she was able to talk the seller into paying for a radon system. Over all we were very satisfied with Valerie's services and would highly reccomend her to anyone looking for a home.

Showed home in 2013 in Camp Dodge, Johnston, IA 50131.

Valerie is genuinely interested in helping find the perfect house for me and has actually made the home search process enjoyable. She is a very good listener and will never pressure you into anything you are uncomfortable with. She is a hard worker and fantastic to work with - I recommend Valerie to anyone needing a realtor.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Waveland Park, Des Moines, IA.

Valerie Ashley said she would help us close on just the right house for us… and she did. This was the first time we used a realtor and we couldn’t have been more pleased. She listened carefully to us, showed us many beautiful homes within our specifications, and was diligent, patient, and always accommodating. She explained fully the complex details of considering and buying a home; protecting our interests all through the process. Home buying can be a stressful process but Valerie Ashley was very supportive; at the same time she made it FUN. Most important, she helped us buy the home we wanted. We are grateful for her professionalism, integrity, the results, and especially her sense of humor. We are so very glad she was our realtor. Krys and Gary Lange

Showed home in 2013 in Western Village Mobile Home Park, West Des Moines, IA 50265.

She is very attentive. I never have to wait for a response. She is really interested in finding me the best house for ME. Never feel pressured. She only wants to sell me a house that is exactly what I want. She has been very flexible with the timings of showings. I have always felt that I could call her day and night and she would respond. She has made me feel like she is only interested in my needs. She really wants me to have an emotional connection to the places she shows me. I am picky and she has never once seems annoyed by it. She reschedules without a word when problems come up with my schedule. She is really a great person to work with

Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Waukee, IA.

Valerie is great in all of these categories. She has worked hard in helping me find and purchase my first home. She puts the interests of her clients ahead of anything else and makes sure you are comfortable with any decision you need to make. She is very thorough with her work in making sure you are informed with everything you need to know and goes the extra mile to make sure you are happy with your decisions at the end of the day. On top of all that, she is a very enthusiastic person and very easy to get along with. I would recommend having her as your Realtor any day.
