Client Reviews and Testimonials
Below are client reviews and testimonials of current and past clients I worked for both as buyers and sellers. These reviews can also be found on websites like Trulia and Zillow.
We thought everything would go smoothly when we decided to look for a bigger home and we never expected to have any trouble with buying and selling a home. But when things got unexpectedly tough, we were so grateful to have an experienced realtor in Ashley. She knew exactly what to do, who to contact, etc. and she took all our worries away. Ashley is probably the hardest working realtor in the business! She started working with us in February by doing a walk through of our home and then giving us a to do list to get our home on the market and increase the probability of obtaining the highest offers. We did what she said and we received $11k over asking. Our house sold within a few days of listing, too! Ashley always made us feel like her only client, which I know was just an illusion. The house we purchased was a difficult transaction due to various reasons, but Ashley helped us get through all the problems with the lender and sellers so we could successfully close escrow. It was a frustrating process and we were so grateful to have her expertise and her calm demeanor to help us navigate the process. At the end of escrow, the sellers not only refused to leave, but they removed items from the home that should have stayed. It was such a relief to know that Ashley can be tough when the going gets there. She was so calm, sweet and attentive, but when we reached an unfortunate rough patch, Ashley was on it! She was not afraid to have the touch conversations and to protect our interests. We ended up in such a stressful situation, but Ashley took care of everything and made sure that the rules/laws were followed. She took charge and represented us perfectly. She also kept things from escalating and just stuck to the laws that were in our favor. We had the sellers out of the home very quickly and the missing items were returned within a couple hours of her taking action. Even our kids and our dog LOVE Ashley! We will always consider her part of our family and we actually miss talking to her everyday. You can’t go wrong having Ashley represent you
Ashley is great! When we met her for first time she had researched our home very thoroughly. She had a solid presentation and we were impressed with her sales approach. She had in-depth knowledge of current market trends in our area and priced our home effectively. But most importantly, we felt very comfortable with her personality. She is very bright and has a sunny disposition. She is very likable. She was not pushy, but consistent and efficient with her communication with us. Ashley put together a great package to display our home online, all with a caring touch. She helped us stage and produced wonderful photos of our home. She made it very easy and a fun, pleasant experience. She strategized our listing date for optimum exposure and then once listed she coordinated all the showings meticulously. We did not feel overburdened at all. It was all very smooth. We received offers in just a few days of showings. Ashley was very conscientious in how she presented these offers to us. She represented us well and we received above asking price for our home. But once we accepted offer she was very helpful through escrow and “held our hand” when needed. We are happy we worked with her and would again in the future
First time when I saw Ashley’s condo it was on a listing, I called her to make an appointment and told her I would like you to list my house too. She was very friendly, she worked with us to see exactly what we where looking for. She list my home Negotiate with the seller. Did Open House. My House took four to five weeks the most.It was SOLD. We purchased the condo. I would recommend her to anyone. Bravo Ashley

Sold a Multi Family Home in 2015 for approximately $775K in Monrovia, CA.
When I first contacted Ashley she responded the next day for first meeting. I would have to say I was impressed with her enthusiasm in her energy level. Don’t let her young age fool you, in this day and age of selling property you need that type of energy that she has and backed up with her experience. Put the two together and I was sold on the first meeting with her. Entering the rest of the sale process she was right on top of everything letting me know what I should do and how to inform the tenants what was going on.
The escrow company she works with was right on top of things too. Quite frankly the units sold much faster than I thought they would. So be ready to sell when you get a hold of Ashley!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $440K in Covina, CA.
Before we found Ashley Howie our various dealings with realtors who we approached in addition to those who approached us had been, in the simplest of terms, “fruitless”. In all, we can now confidently say that these were very unproductive and frankly unnerving experiences. There were realtors who had attempted to compel us to pump more of our limited funds into our home to ease the “burden” of marketing the property for us as well as those who simply lacked the ability to listen and understand our circumstances so as to hopefully modify their selling approach to suit our needs. Honestly, it was the differences in Ashley’s approach, personality and work demeanor that initially drew us as sellers to her, it was the qualities which she possessed that allowed us to put our faith in her marketing ability and thus choose her as the first, last, and only representative of our property. In writing this review I am so happy to say that my trust was not in vain. We sold our house within four days of the initial listing and although these might have been some of the most turbulent days in my life as there seemed to be an unending procession of prospective buyers at my door I am glad that Ashley was there to help guide me through this stormy time in my life. I cannot begin to express my gratitude to her for everything that she has done for me. Thank you, Ashley.

Ashley is a great Realtor to work with. My house was not on the market long before it sold. Ashley, is very respectful for my situation and honest with me about everything.

I’ve been looking at homes in the San Gabriel Valley and found the experience totally overwhelming until I got in touch with Ashley. She’s friendly, straightforward and pragmatic. She gets the area, understands the market and was able to give me results within my budget.
The homes she displayed were gorgeous. Great layout, knew the history of each place from top to bottom. Made me feel instantly comfortable, and we are currently negotiating. I look forward to moving in soon, I feel like I’m buying from family here.
