As first-time home buyers, my wife and I were daunted by the process - the hunting, the logistics, the financing... Enter Ashlee, who successfully guided us through it all! Simply put, Ashlee was great to work with. Her local knowledge is extensive; she answered the million questions we had. She helped us find the right location for our purposes. One thing that particularly impressed me about Ashlee is how quickly she latched onto the types of homes we like. We picked about 6 to see on our first excursion with Ashlee, and after just a few minutes of conversation, she said, "You'll love this one." Her comment surprised me because she was describing the house that appealed to me least (based on Zillow pictures at least). But when we saw the house in person - wow. Needless to say, it's the house we bought, and Ashlee had us pegged right from the start.
That's incredible intuition, and when that's combined with vast knowledge and a helpful personality, you've got a winning realtor.
