No one could predict the changes in the 2020 real estate landscape. That’s part of why choosing a determined, reliable REALTOR® is central to any successful listing, homebuying or rental experience. How do you know when you’ve chosen correctly?
For a woman who admits she can talk about anything, the one thing that makes Patricia “Patti” Ashford most enthused is real estate. Ms. Ashford has certainly earned the liking and respect of those she’s homed for the past 13 years, in part due to her adventuresome attitude, her patience and her responsiveness to travel regionally in Broward, Palm Beach and Collier counties, Florida to find people their dream homes. She is as adept to working with out-of-staters and established Floridians looking to rent, buy and sell.
“To me, the perfect day is connecting with customers, going out and finding them their dream home. I believe you must have your customer understand every step of the process, because it’s a lot. We have to be one step ahead of the technology, because we have a lot of savvy new buyers, and the more seasoned set, like me, know the technology.”
One satisfied customer says, “My family has purchased a total of three homes and sold two, all with the guidance of Patti Ashford. Her knowledge of the industry, the market, and financial matters was extremely beneficial to us. We would highly recommend that you contact her for any home buying or selling needs. She is the best at what she does.”
Another ‘happy homeowner’ revealed Patti has assisted him with purchasing, selling and renting several homes. “As I do not live in the state of Florida, it was important that I have a REALTOR® that is knowledgeable, professional, and able to guide me through the various aspects, pros, and cons associated with home ownership. If Patti Ashford is your REALTOR, you are in good hands.”
A New York native, Ms. Ashford started her professional life with a Manhattan publishing company. With coursework in accounting and several bookkeeping positions preceding, she eventually earned a vice president of accounting position for a national franchising company, as well as trainer. Her ability to work deftly with data and people was evident early on.
“That background along with attention to detail and following up tenaciously has helped me tremendously in the home buying/selling process. Ms. Ashford started her real estate career in 2006, primarily transacting rentals, then joining REMAX Preferred in Ft. Lauderdale. In 2016, she enthusiastically joined both Signature Paradise in Boca Raton and Signature’s onsite office at King’s Point, Delray Beach.
Ms. Ashford’s most proud of her accomplishment as a mother and grandmother of her two sons, her daughter and her six grandchildren. She enjoyed traveling with her youngest son while he competed in Olympic Tae Kwon Do until joining the Marine Corp and being deployed to Iraq. His and her husband’s service to our country—her husband receiving the Purple Heart for his service as a Marine during the Vietnam War— makes her excited to educate service members and veterans about VA mortgages, a skill she’s fine-tuned during her years in real estate.
“That is very near and dear to my heart and probably my favorite transaction, helping a veteran and their family buy a home.” Ms. Ashford also enjoys her time reading, walking and spending time with family and her animals.
