During this time, she was able to learn about Chicago’s different neighborhoods and surrounding suburbs. She helped her clients build equity in their homes and loved creating their ideal backyard. From pulling building permits to reading surveys, Ashley feels knowledgeable about many aspects of construction.

We are so pleased that we had Ashley and Jason sell our University Commons condo! The fact they both live there--Jason is right up on the fourth floor and Ashley lives in a first floor unit just like ours, in an adjacent building--was the key factor. Ashley did a great job selling the virtues of first floor living, while Jason was helpful analyzing the comparable units before listing and then negotiating our offer. They also recommended a fabulous attorney to handle the closing. This unit became an investment property for us over the last several years, so we are thrilled to have it off our hands, thanks to Ashley and Jason!
Ashley was wonderful to work with, I highly recommend engaging her as your realtor. Ashley is truthful, reliable, practical and focused on ensuring that you find a home that suits your needs and is within your budget. She assisted me with a purchase of a condo near the UIC. Initially she assisted my daughter with filtering out properties I would like, and when she took me to the showing, she had familiarized herself with my requirements also. She was knowledgeable about the area and researched any questions about which she lacked information. She was responsive, respectful and extremely patient. My daughter most appreciated her for not being pushy to make a sale, and being diligent. By her own admission, my daughter has advised that she often ran late to showings but Ashley was punctual, and when my daughter was late in responding to emails, Ashley was patient and followed up gently to obtain the required response to keep the search active. She did a terrific job and I would engage her realty services again should the need arise. Keep it up, Ashley.
Both Jason and his partner Ashley assisted us with our University Village condo purchase and we were very pleased with their level of detail, especially when it came to negotiating, the inspection items, and their response times. Their knowledge of the business, and this complex in particular, were of great benefit to us...and they have been very helpful after the sale!
