Print Agent Bio

If there’s a better feeling than helping people, I still haven’t found it. Being your go-to trusted resource in navigating the ins and outs of home buying and selling means the world to me, because there’s nothing more important than a person’s home. With honesty, integrity, and compassion, I can’t wait to help you in your next chapter.


Beyond years of knowledge and experience in the Portland market, I bring with me a team of housing experts ready to help you navigate every moving piece of the process. My goal? Make it seamless and make it stress-free, achieving the best possible outcome for my clients. Making that happen means bringing together skills I’ve honed in Real Estate and wine sales management—a blend of negotiation tactics, strong communication, and an ability to stay even-keeled during even the most stressful situations.

 

Above all, I understand how big home buying and selling can be. The kind of big that you plan for years in advance. The kind that turns a normal conversation into a stressful one, and makes to rethink your decisions entirely. But I believe it can be the right kind of big, too. Like the feeling that comes when you hold your new keys for the first time, or the indescribable joy in knowing that great, big, beautiful house is yours. No one will work harder for you than I will to make one of life’s biggest moments a positive one.

I found Ashley to be very quick-witted, very bright, extremely knowledgeable about the real estate process and was able to answer most questions on the spot. And if unable to answer immediately, she always followed through with an answer after consult to find the info. All other professionals expressed she was easy to work with. She maintained constant vigilance on pricing comparison of property values all the way to the last 2 weeks when she felt the house and the market would support an additional rise in the asking price when going live. I met Ashley when attending an open house for my next door neighbor. I discussed needing to sell my house, and discussed an equal pull on myself to not sell. I saw 4 other realtors over recent years and was not enthused. I was ready to give up and sell it as-is before even trying to start. I had been in the house for over 30 years and was attached to it despite needing to sell for retirement and other financial reasons. I say I was attached to the house, but it was more of an entrenchment! I was overwhelmed with the amount of work necessary to repair and upgrade my house for sale. Ashley is saint-like with her patience, and is one of the most positive people I have ever met. She has vision and imagination. She relentlessly retorted positively to my cynicism and made persistent suggestions of tasks to make the house appealing to a new buyer. I kept resisting with almost every suggestion until realizing she was right and I would then ultimately proceed with the task. She patiently kept suggesting items one at a time to keep me from being overwhelmed to a point of dysfunction. It took a while before I stopped resisting and just began total trust in Ashley. At that point finally, if she suggested something, I just asked “what color?” She connected me with a vast source of contractors ranging in price and quality to help me ready my house. She was able to get appointments with contractors at the height of the summer contractor season. She made appointments for estimates when I was too busy working on the house and when contractors were too busy to come, they came anyway for Ashley. And she often met contractors at the house to ensure they were guided to what work was desired. She gently prodded me to take on tasks I could do myself, and she did the research to locate those products necessary for the task — the product type, where to get it, the correct color, everything! She was able to find a contractor who did kitchen and bath upgrades as an alternative to replacement at greater expense. This was not only a great savings, but everybody who saw the work of the kitchen/bath upgrade repairs was “wowed”. She expressed as much excitement as I felt to see the house take shape when she periodically came by to connect with me or contractor’s progress. She made the whole process flow — everything from legal real estate issues to kitchen counter repairs. I was able to list for about $80k higher than I originally intended. And by the time we were on the market, I wanted to stay because it looked so nice. Ashley also made the closing go very smoothly, very professionally, and very innocuously. She maintains her connection after the sale. I recommend Ashley highly to all I meet.

My wife and I moved to Oregon and spent over 9 months looking at homes to buy in the Portland area. We met Ashley at an open house and quickly knew almost immediately that she was the agent we wanted. She quickly understood our needs in a home and adapted to our- shall I say- peculiarities in the way we approached the process. She was responsive to a fault and always made us feel that she was ready to move at a moments notice, displaying a lot of patience with us over the lengthy process. I have already recommended her to friends, will continue to do so, and she is my go-to for our next real-estate transaction.

— Mark P.

We lucked out meeting Ashley at an open house before we were really looking for homes. It was my first time buying a home and Ashley was super helpful; very responsive and never pushy. She did a great job guiding us through the process and we feel really good about results of our negotiation. We're very thankful to have had her as our agent!

— Jeb H.

Ashley went above and beyond her duties as a realtor by getting us contractor bids on all home inspection discrepancies, especially since we were remote. We did not have a realtor and were just assigned to Ashley...it could not have been any better. Ashley is a very pleasant person to do business with.

— Carole J.

Ashley Bronson is truly such an amazing real estate agent. She helped us navigate the difficulties of selling and buying in Portland's mercurial market. We sold our house for above asking in under a week and she helped us to find the perfect home for our needs and budget. She was always available for questions or ideas and really listened to what we were looking for. We cannot recommend her enough - if you are looking for someone who is smart about the real estate market and sensitive to her client's needs, Ashley is the real estate agent for you!

— Rebecca L.

This past spring we were looking for a house in our daughter's neighborhood when we met Ashley at an open house nearby. Because our search area was pretty small we were able to quickly zero in on the right house for us. Ashley showed us the house on short notice and guided us through the offer, inspection, negotiation, and closing processes so that we were able to move into our house in short order. Ashley is a very competent realtor, taking the time to introduce herself and her company and making sure that everything is done correctly and on time. She is very pleasant and congenial. We highly recommend her.

— Mat and Linda M.

This was our first home-buying experience, and we felt very anxious going into this process. Once we met Ashley, this quickly changed. Her friendliness and professionalism gave us the confidence we needed to find the right house for us. Her knowledge about the local neighborhoods and current trends helped tremendously. Most importantly, she always made time for us, and was there to make things go smoothly every step of the way. We highly recommend her services, especially for first-time buyers who might otherwise feel alone in this process.

— Jesse K.

It’s about quality over quantity. At Hasson, we take tremendous pride in associating only with agents who epitomize the service, communication and professionalism that our company is known for. The agents and the company are dependent upon each other to achieve the greatest success.
