PROFILE OF A SUCCESSFUL PROFESSIONAL
"HIP HIP HURRAY! This wouldn’t have happened without you. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Thank you for all your kindness."
"We called Gay to sell our home after another realtor from a big name company could not sell it after several months. We were in a bind and needed to sell quickly and that is exactly what Gay did. She had our home sold within weeks and with a good selling price as well. I would recommend Gay for any real estate needs you have. She will work smart and fast for you as she did for us."
Dawn and Tim C.
"Matt was shocked , all he could do was hug me and say "you rock mom". Thanks Gay for helping me get the house!! You Rock!"
"I highly recommend Gay to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a home. This is my fourth transaction with her.” Mike I.
"Gay helped my family and I buy and sell two properties, so there was no question I'd turn to her for help in renting my condo. She's more than an intelligent and professional realtor, she's a really kind person with a great sense of humor. I always recommend her to friends and family as the realtor to work with in Northern Virginia." Sam F.
""Again, thanks for everything. The house sale went very smoothly, which is a testament to your abilities." Perry M.
"Gay Ashley has provided outstanding service. I relocated to Denver very quickly and Gay was instrumental in getting my property in Virginia setup and rented. She greatly relieved the pressure and stress associated with a quick move. Gay kept me fully informed throughout the entire process. I will continue to use Gay to represent my property. Thank you Gay!!!" Ron C.
"Just wanted to say hi and thank you for going "above and beyond" to help us with all the house stuff. YOU ARE GREAT............." Nona and Seth W
"We bought and sold our house with Gay and were very impressed with her. She was always available to answer questions and kept us in the loop. She worked hard to make sure that both transactions went off without a hitch. We were so satisfied with her work, we have directed every one we know to her." Ashley W.
"Gay Ashley is a treasure! As first-time homebuyers and newcomers to Northern Virginia, we were naturally somewhat apprehensive about buying a home. Gay patiently explained the whole process and did an excellent job of finding suitable homes in our price range. She offered insightful observations on all the homes and neighborhoods we visited, and we greatly benefited from her understanding of the nuances of the complicated home buying process. We were extremely impressed with her knowledge and experience as a Realtor and appreciated her delightful people skills. Throughout our entire real estate transaction, we always felt like we had a strong advocate and capable professional representing us. When it was time to relocate from the area, Gay went above and beyond by promptly and graciously providing us with an excellent real estate (agent) contact in Utah, which expedited our house hunting and buying process upon arrival. We highly recommend Gay Ashley and would make no hesitation to tap her extraordinary expertise again in the future!"
--Ken and Lisa Bigley, Lehi, Utah

"Ashley Realty was referred to me by a friend, who normally doesn’t make recommendations unless they are confident in the services provided, they were so right about Ashley Realty. This was my first time attempting to sell a home and I started working with Gay and she was extremely helpful and informative about the process, what to expect and provided countless recommendations to get my home ready to sell. I had done my own research on the internet and talked to numerous people about the key things I needed to do to sell my home, Gay was extremely patient with me and worked through multiple scenarios and ultimately defined the best approach for me and my situation. Just as I listed my home for sell the market started to decline and it became more and more challenging. Once again Gay was very patient with me and gave me excellent advice and recommendations, during this time I had a very high volume of traffic through my home. My home was getting a lot of attention via the internet and people actually walking through my home but as the market continued to decline the serious home buyers were understandably looking for the best bargain. I was fortunate that I was not in a desperate situation and had to sell my home, so I didn’t have to settle for offers I felt were too low for my home. Once again Gay worked with me and evaluated the pros and cons of continuing to try and sell in a tough market or to consider making my home a rental property. After careful evaluation, I decided to convert my home into a rental property to see what was going to happen with the market. Gay was also extremely helpful in guiding me down the process to establish my home as a rental property, to find qualified tenants and a property manager. In the end considering the state of the market, I am extremely pleased with the results and I feel because of Gay I made the best choices for my situation. I will continue to use Ashley Realty in the future and like the friend who referred them to me, I too will refer them because I know they provide quality services." Dave M.
"Just wanted to send a quick note and say thanks so much great job you did. It went unbelievably smooth for me and I was pleased the price we got! We’ll let you know in the next year or so when we plan to put another condo on the market and look again."
"Just a short note to thank you for your assistance in selling our condo in the Vistas development on Bushman Drive.

Bev and I appreciate your friendly and knowledgeable professionalism." Terry and Bev

"Gay Ashley is the most upstanding Realtor I have ever worked with. My complete process was done by phone and e-mail.

If I was ever buying or selling in her area again, she would be my Realtor of choice." Rhonda

If only all sales people could be in tune with the service they provide, as Gay was, we’d all have a happy settlement and new home experience every time.
