Thank you for all your help in selling our cottage in Tobermory. This was not an easy task for you or us, considering the fact that we were living in British Columbia at the time. You & your team were extremely patient, helpful & resourceful in working out all the small details involved in a long distance transaction.

Thanks again,
Larry & Carol

Growing up in Red Bay and returning to the area after post-secondary education, Ashley is familiar with what makes the Bruce Peninsula unique, and shows her passion for the area in her work.

Ashley received her Bachelors Degree in Interior Design, graduating with honours from Conestoga College. During this time, Ashley studied the Ontario Building Code, zoning by-laws and construction methods, and developed practical negotiating skills; knowledge which translates perfectly into the real estate industry. Ashley has received several awards for academic proficiency and skillful design solutions. During her spare time, she participated in design competitions and pursued several volunteer projects.

Interior design is all about listening to your clients and understanding what they need, then translating this need into a reality. This is what Ashley strives to do in real estate as well. Searching for a home or property is a journey, and Ashley cannot wait to help you embark on that journey!
