"She was AMAZING!..."  

She looked after my interests and took wonderful care of me thru the whole process.  Explained everything clearly as we went thru the closing process.  I recommend her without reservation.

"We could not have been more ..."

We could not have been more pleased with Ashley's professionalism throughout the entire process of selling our cooperative apartment in Norfolk.  Since all of the above sections are given the highest rating, I would only add that my favorite part about working with Ashley was her approachable personality.  She never had an overly "salesperson" way of communicating with me which was really appreciated.  I will enthusiastically refer Ashley to anybody I know who is buying or selling in Tidewater.


"...Outstanding job..."

Ashley was amazing selling my Dad's old home! It sold in a day and closed in nine days! Outstanding job, well done by Ashley!

"...Would work with Ashley again anytime..."

Ashley listed and sold my home of 16 years. Ashley was responsive, has a large network of service providers who were helpful, and had great insight into pricing strategy. Ashley provides all the information that you need but let's you dictate the process on everything from pricing to contract negotiations. Would work with Ashley again anytime.

"...She really took care of us..."

Ashley took over after a very bad experience with a different agent. She really took care of us and looked out for our best interest. She paid attention to details and was a great coach when I started to panic. I highly recommend her to anyone who is selling their house for the first time, she walks with you every step of the way.

"...worked tirelessly througout the entire process..."

As out-of-town buyers we relied on Ashley's local expertise, honesty, and responsiveness. She exceeded all expectations. Ashley helped us navigate the unpredictably of the market with skill and grace. During our property search she listened to our feedback and ensured that we were up to date on available listings to give us the best chance at putting in an offer. Ashley worked tirelessly throughout the entire process to ensure a smooth transaction and let no detail go unnoticed. We have purchased many homes before, but our experience with Ashley has by far been the best.

"... She responsive and patient..."

Ashley worked with us for several months during the crazy market of the pandemic from fall of 2020 to early 2021. She was responsive and patient with all of our questions as we learned the ropes of homebuying in a new state and under unusual conditions. Ashley quickly learned our preferences, got us viewings quickly when a property came on the market, warned us of pitfalls and helped us every step of the way. She knows the city, and is clearly known and respected in the community, working well with other realtors. And she continues to provide us referrals to contractors when we need them. Ashley was recommended to us and we will recommend her to others.

"... She coordinated the entire process from prepping the house to the final sale."

Ashely was fabulous! We moved to Oahu and had two houses to sell on the mainland. She coordinated the entire process from prepping the house to the final sale. I can't imagine a better Agent in the business. We loved her and she made the entire process easy and worry free.

"...Highly recommend..."

Professional! Ashley is extremely organized and well prepared. She provided a very detailed and in-depth market analysis. She kept checking for new comps every few days until listing date to make sure our listing price was spot on. She also has a great rapport with other agents and made the whole process super easy from start to finish.

"...Addressed all of our concerns..." 

When my wife and I were contemplating jumping into the market this spring, we had numerous questions since we had been in our beautiful home so long. Ashley addressed all of our concerns and dealt with us in a professional manner. As things grew somewhat chaotic, she had a calming effect on her two clients; she helped allay our doubts and guided us through the process expertly. Thanks, Ashley!

"...she had a keen eye for details and took every opportunity to help me..."

Worked with Ashley when moving into town from Florida. Right away I could sense she had a keen eye for details and took every opportunity to help me through the process of purchasing my new home in the Coastal Virginia area. Her local expertise really paid dividends in aiding my search. She was readily available for any and all questions, perhaps even after hours when she didn't need to be. Looking forward to working with her again and would highly recommend her to any folks moving to the area!

Jeffrey L.

"...the whole proces went smoothly from start to finish and beyond..."

Ashley did an amazing job helping us to find the perfect new home. Since she is a Hampton Roads native, she knows the area extremely well. The whole process went smoothly start to finish and beyond. Ashley's experience, attention to detail, responsiveness and positive attitude were the reason why. We would definitely recommend her and look forward to working with her again in the future.

"...She was both a staunch advocate for our concerns, while always listening and not pushing us to do anything we weren't ready for." 

Ashley did a great job of respecting the nuances of a situation where I was the purchaser and my partner was going to be added to the deed.  She met us at the spur of the moment when our dream home came on the market, and was a great sounding board as we negotiated the emotions and concerns of figuring out if this was truly the home we wanted.  It definitely was, and we love it.  She was both a staunch advocate for our concerns, while always listening and not pushing us to do anything we weren't ready for.  We would 100% recommend her to friends and family.

"...made the process as simple as possible"

Ashley was incredible in assisting me to purchase my new home. As a first-time homebuyer, she made the process as simple as possible. She treated me as a family member and for that I am so grateful.

"...with us every step of the way"

Ashley was a great real estate agent, especially with it being our first home! She answered all questions, explained everything thoroughly & was with us every step of the way.

" .... 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 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.

"......Very detail-oriented, excellent communicator, and pays very close attention to what your priorities are."

Ashley is absolutely amazing to work with! She helped us both find our dream home and sell our current home. She is very detail-oriented, an excellent communicator, and pays very close attention to what your priorities are. We were very picky buyers and she supported us every step of the way.   When buying our new home, she was an excellent negotiator on our behalf. And, when we went to sell our old home, she was fantastic at staging and marketing our home. She takes great pride in the pictures she takes of your house, which can make all the difference in how fast it sells - we had an offer in 4 days! I cannot recommend Ashley enough!! Give her a call, you won't regret it!

“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!

"......caring, extremely professional agent who will work hard for you to reach your desired goals"

I have never seen a more knowledgeable, organized, responsive, and caring agent than Ashley. She was there for us from beginning to end and we never felt a moment of concern . She went above and beyond the typical real estate agent's duties and spent many hours working for and talking to us concerning the sale of our mom's home. When we ran into challenges, she worked through them with us. She was always easy to contact and was always upbeat. I would recommend Ashley to anyone who wants a caring, extremely professional agent who will work hard for you to reach your desired goals! She's the best ! 

Kathy P.

"....worked hard to meet our wants within our budget"

Ashley was wonderful! She was patient with us and worked hard to meet our wants within our budget. She was honest with us throughout and when it came time for negotiations she expertly led us through the process. I can’t thank her enough!

Tom and Sara K.

".....sell in the minimum time possible while still maximizing my sales price"

Ashley is AMAZING! I owe her a debt of gratitude for helping me sell my townhouse. She helped me get everything to where it needed to be to sell in the minimum time possible while still maximizing my sales price. She is positive, helpful, and super organized. She even accommodated me with FaceTime calls while I was traveling overseas so that we could keep the process moving. I cannot recommend Ashley highly enough. She is FANTASTIC and really took care of every detail. Thank you Ashley!

" to sell our home for full price in two days with her help"

Ashley helped us to sell our first home. She was friendly, easy to work with, professional and knowledgeable. We were able to sell our home for full price in two days with her help. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else.

".....She works hard for her clients and is 100% involved in the entire process."

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 prefect 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

"......helped me write a contract that was accepted."

Ashley was a great help and asset to me in buying my new home. She worked hard to find the perfect place for me to call my own. She was available when I wanted to look at places and helped me write a contract that was accepted. Thanks again, Ashley!

Susan B.

"......goes above and beyond for her clients"

Ashley sold my house in two months, after it had sat on the market for more than six months with almost no interest. She is knowledgeable and professional and goes above and beyond for her clients. I will absolutely use her again and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a top-notch agent.

“….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 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.

"......From our first phone call I could tell she was going to be great to work with..."

When I started looking for a home, I was referred to Ashley from a friend. From our first phone call I could tell she was going to be great to work with - and that could not have been more true! She guided me throughout the process and helped me to make smart decisions. She was so supportive  throughout the entire process and was always there to answer any questions and give suggestions. She has an expansive network of professionals in the industry - mortgage lenders, home inspectors, etc, and can always give the best recommendations. Ashley will definitely be who I call when I'm ready to buy/sell again!

“….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!

Cathy L.

“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.

Roy & Bev G.


 “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!

Kim M.

” When we buy again it will be through Ashley Swindell.”

Ashley was awesome! From start to finish, Ashley was there for us, looking out for us, always had our best interest first and our experience could not have been better. Ashley made it easy! I completely recommend Ashley and have! When we buy again it will be through Ashley Swindell.

"......always puts the interests of her clients above all else"

We have known Ashley for many years as we tried to maneuver through a less than ideal market. Several years ago, she suggested we rent out our condo instead of selling it since she knew we would take a huge hit at the closing table. This is one of the many ways that shows Ashley always puts the interests of her clients above all else. Recently, we went back to Ashley to sell this condo. While we consider ourselves relatively real estate savvy, her guidance was indispensable during the entire end-to-end process, especially when dealing with the condo association. Since we were not living in the area anymore and with hectic schedules, it was imperative for us to have a Realtor that is very organized, responsive, and detail-oriented, and we found that with Ashley.

Jenny and Matt G.

 “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.

Gordon J.

“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!!
