It all started when…
When an 11-year career in the medical field came to a head, Ashley Stroh relied on her familiarity with the real estate industry to lead her in the right direction. She was at a point in her medical career when she had to look into pursuing the clinical side of the field rather than administrative. She decided to go a completely different route keeping her family’s multi-generational real estate involvement in mind. Her decision to get her license paid off when she joined our Grandview team in September of last year.
Ashley is striving to create her personal brand to sell herself as a commodity that her clients invest their time and trust in during one of life’s most important purchases. Her involvement in Columbus has made her a resource for clients to stay up-to-date about what’s happening in the city. Her focus as a new agent is in the Short North and Grandview area. She resides in the heart of Short North with her husband and German Shorthaired Pointer, Echo. Her passion for real estate is as strong as her love for rescuing dogs and helping connect them with loving families. Let Ashley be your resource for all things Columbus!
Why Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Professional Realty?
“I knew from the time I became licensed that figuring out what brokerage I would associate my name with was crucial. I knew I didn't want to be an agent that frequently hops around. While taking classes I set up a lot of interviews trying to find the right fit for me. I was impressed with everything BHHS Pro had to offer. This brokerage holds itself to the highest standard possible.”
What sets you apart from other agents?
“I am very unique in that I have a strong involvement with the LGBTQ community in Columbus. The urban scene in Columbus has always sparked my interest and drew me into eventually living here. I have a lot of friends in the community and I want to be a resource for them in all their real estate needs.”
What is one thing you believe every house must have?
“Every house must have a gathering space. Whether that be the kitchen or the family room, a place to gravitate towards while hosting a few friends or family is very important in a home.”
How do you maintain a work-life balance?
“I try to be as involved in the community as possible outside of work. Whether I’m at a charity event or going out to dinner I try to keep myself busy with events that are not work related so I can find time to enjoy my loved one’s company.”
What advice do you have for buyers and sellers in the market?
“It’s very important for buyers and sellers to listen to professionals. Don’t try to go through the process on your own. This is not only our job, but it’s what we love to do!”
