" .... cite countless examples of her wisdom and professionalism"

Ashley Swindell is the consummate professional real estate agent. Her obvious experience, skill, and wisdom gained from 21 years in the profession helped us immeasurably as it took more than a year for us to find a home in a particular neighborhood where very few homes go on the market. She was patient and provided us with comprehensive market analysis and other information we needed. and spent countless hours in research. When we finally decided to submit an offer on a home being sold "as is", her advice and the protections to us that she included in the contract helped us to obtain a lovely home at a reasonable price though it is in need of quite a lot of deferred maintenance. Features she provided in our offer minimized our risk in case unacceptable problems were discovered during the inspection process. She provided assurance during a long arduous process but helped protect our interest at every step. She has incredible attention to detail which also served to protect our interest. She developed a good rapport with the seller's agent who I imagine learned quite a bit from working with her. Her personality is outgoing, warm, and she is a joy to work with. I can cite countless examples of her wisdom and professionalism. We are so happy in our new home in this neighborhood we love.

“….offering advice that resulted in an offer within 24 hours of listing.”

Ashley Swindell provided excellent service resulting in the sale of my house and the subsequent purchase of a new house. She was especially helpful in staging and offering advice that resulted in an offer within 24 hours of listing. Additionally, Ashley was instrumental in helping me throughout the process of locating, selecting, and negotiating the purchase of a new home – from the first model visit until closing (and beyond). She was especially helpful during the process of decision making regarding obtaining and using a reverse mortgage. All interactions were professional, timely, and handled competently.

“…she goes the extra mile & is a pleasure to work with. “

– Ashley Swindell is a fantastic Realtor to work with! She works hard for her clients and is 100% involved in the entire process. We were new to the area and Ashley took the time to teach us the various towns and found us the perfect neighborhood. Ashley made sure to communicate everything with us and holds her ground when necessary with other agents. We would highly recommend Ashley for your home buying or selling needs, she goes the extra mile and is a pleasure to work with. We would work with her again in a heartbeat!

 “She is professional, responsive and creative.”

Ashley has handled the sale of two houses for me in the past three years. She is professional, responsive and creative. I was out of town much of the time during these transactions but knew that I could depend on her attention to detail and sound judgment. Before any showing, she would go to the property turn on the lights, sweep the steps and always ensure that the house looked warm and inviting. She found workmen to repair everything that needed to be done and was on the premises to supervise and secure the property. Her listing websites were fantastic. She is a talented photographer and her beautiful pictures drew much attention to both listings. When selling my lakefront property, she went out of her way to go to the far side of the lake to take a photograph from that angle. It really enhanced the view and showed the scope of the lot that could never have been seen in the usual shots taken of homes. In the other home that seemed somewhat dated by 1980’s style and fixtures, she had it staged with beautiful contemporary furnishings that drew a younger demographic and showed the home’s real potential. Ashley is everything one could want in an agent.

“….She answered all of our questions completely and accurately. “

Ashley knew exactly what we were looking for, was not at all pushy and answered all our questions completely and accurately. She connected us with vendors who helped in the process and we still love our home!

“Her calming and optimistic influence were very helpful during this major upheaval..” 

Ashley was respectful and courteous to us at all times during this lengthy process. Her photographic skills in showcasing our property were outstanding. Her calming and optimistic influence were very helpful during this major upheaval in our lives – that of leaving a house after 26 years and relocating to a condominium, which was a new experience for us. She was kind, totally respectful, and helpful to prospective buyers.

 “She made an extremely hard and stressful process…EASY! “

What can I say about Ashley? Well, she is articulate, extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of the area and the real estate industry…and patient! As we were relocating from NoVa, where life is fast-paced and incredibly busy, Ashley easily kept up with us (and we are not easy to keep up with!!!). There was not a single phone call or email that was met with resistance. We had to find a house with only 2-weekend visits…all while I was staying with my Dad in a hospital. She gave up her entire weekend and a lot of her evenings, to help us and show us house after house. She is patient, kind, and most of all…made an extremely hard and stressful process…EASY! I can honestly say that when it is time for us to move again – Ashley is our girl!

 “Use Ashley Swindell with confidence.”

Ashley was INCREDIBLE. She showed us houses meeting our criteria at all hours of the day and evening, when we called, she was there. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and personable. The consummate professional in every regard. She is on speed dial for our next home purchase. Use Ashley Swindell with confidence.

“Thank you Ashley! You’re the best!”

My move to Norfolk from San Diego was a hasty series of challenges and decisions, and I needed to find a home. Ashley and I started several months out, refining my preferences and abilities in the current market, but after losing out on two different bids my window was closing. Ashley remained incredibly positive about my prospects, acting as a fantastic source of timely information and she bent over backward to ensure that I was going to find that home of my dreams. It’s my first home! It should be a home that I’m proud of, and a home that suits me uniquely and no one understood that better than Ashley. I purchased a gorgeous home on the northern tip of Larchmont in an idyllic neighborhood site unseen because of what she was able to do for me. I almost hesitate to say it was sight unseen because of the myriad photos, youtube videos, property assessments, comps and market data that Ashley provided. It was truly amazing. She’s responsive, she’s incredibly diligent, and she genuinely knows Norfolk after having grown up here. I’m still blown away by what she orchestrated for my fiance and me. Thank you, Ashley! You’re the best!

“Absolutely recommend her for anyone looking for a Realtor.”

Ashley is an incredibly reliable, helpful, trustworthy realtor who worked her hardest to get us our new house. There were many issues and concerns with our process because the house we wanted was a foreclosure, but Ashley really knew what she was doing. We couldn’t be happier with her work, and absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

“We owe it to her in making this venture not only successful but also fun.”

I am writing this letter on behalf of my family to show our appreciation and gratitude for Ms. Ashley Swindell of Nancy Chandler Associates. Ashley was not only a very well informed Realtor but more importantly, she had the demeanor and attitude that suited our quest to purchase a condominium at Virginia Beach perfectly. This purchase was a venture to own a beach property as a secondary residence by two opinionated families with four strong-willed individuals. Ashley was the right person for this job. Her patience, sense of humor, and clear understanding of what we were looking for were the ideal attributes we needed to complete our quest. We owe it to her in making this venture not only successful but also fun.

“….Now that’s customer service!” 

I called Ashley about a house I saw through her website, she quickly made an appointment to see it that evening – we had an offer (and a new home) in 24 hours!! We met her at her office at 11:30 pm at night to sign the final contract! Now, that is customer service!!
