Hello, my name is Ashley! I was raised in the tiny southwest Washington town of Bay Center. The oldest of four children, I have been looking out for the interest of others since childhood.
Before becoming a real estate agent, I spent fifteen years in the bridal business. I liken those experiences to helping friends. I enjoyed getting to know my customers - not just what they were looking for - but who they were. Working closely together, I would help them pick out and try on gowns until they found "the one". Helping brides-to-be find that perfect dress, the one that made them feel beautiful, and completed their dream wedding was the most satisfying part of that career. This passion and commitment to making dreams come true are traits that I bring to the real estate business.
In 2015, I bought my first home, and the experience didn’t live up to my expectations. The agent completed all the necessary paperwork, but that was about it. I was left to my own devices to find homes I was interested in and do much of the research on my own. There was no excitement or relationship built, and the process took valuable time away from my already busy schedule. This experience planted the real estate seed in my mind; I wanted to give others the experience I’d hoped to have and make the home buying and selling process, not just stress-free - but enjoyable.
When deciding to make a career change, real estate was the clear choice. Helping clients in the home buying experience and guiding them through the process in a way that is exciting and fun, is something I take pride in. Buying or selling a home is an important part of your life. I believe this shouldn’t be a stressful experience, but an exciting one and I strive to make it so. I look forward to working with you!
