Ashleigh Vasi hadn’t anticipated a career in real estate, but after a positive experience buying her home, her agent encouraged her to try her hand at the business. While she was hesitant at first, Ashleigh’s ambitions ultimately won out, and she took her agent’s suggestion with the hopes that it’d open up new professional horizons as a working mom. Once she earned her licensed in December 2011, Ashleigh worked solo and on a team to build the repertoire of skills and understanding she’d apply to her work alongside clients. Seven years later, Ashleigh has established a reputation for highly communicative service that hones in on the individual and their unique needs.
Today, Ashleigh serves the greater Cleveland area from her base in Strongsville, Ohio. There, she spearheads her work solo and has earned roughly 90% of her business based on repeat and referral clientele within her sphere. To keep business booming, Ashleigh cites responsiveness and accessibility as leading tenets of her professional philosophy. “Communication is key,” she says. “I consistently follow-up with clients and answer every call or text, even if it’s just to say I’ll have to touch base once a meeting is complete.” Likewise, Ashleigh keeps in touch long after the closing table by building client relationships founded on trust and good will. She hosts client appreciation events yearly and often buys tables at charitable events to connect with clients over a worthy cause. What’s more, she’s systematic in crafting a five-year outreach plan for clients, and stays in touch regularly through social media, by text, and via monthly mailers. Considering her dedicated approach to staying top-of-mind with her ever-growing network, it’s clear Ashleigh has built her enterprise on quality service and relationships that last.
To market listings, Ashleigh takes a forward-thinking approach that blends the best practices of digital and traditional marketing. She begins with a pre-listing walkthrough to assess a home’s particular strengths and weaknesses—finding opportunities to declutter, patch up, or reimagine her clients’ spaces. Then, she turns to high quality professional photography, drone images, and 3D floor videos to create an immersive experience for viewers online. Postcards and print media accompany all listings to drum up local exposure, while targeted ads on social media source ideal buyers in short order. While her seven years in the industry have yielded a consistent track record of success, Ashleigh most enjoys the chance to pair with clients and flex her creative problem-solving skills. “I love helping people,” she says. “I especially enjoy the chance to work with excited first-time homebuyers. I also have a passion for marketing, so I really enjoy the challenges of the listing side of the process, as well. All in all, I love the chance to be my own boss and the limitless possibility of the industry.”
To give back to her greater Cleveland community, Ashleigh works with local schools to sponsor various student sports, clubs, and organizations. This includes sponsorship of the local boys’ baseball team and the JROTC program. Every year, she also fundraises for a scholarship bestowed on a chosen student at Elyria High School in honor of her late cousin. The scholarship compels students to draft essays on the cause and effects of reckless teen driving, raising awareness of a public safety issue while supporting a local student’s college dreams. Ashleigh also serves as the 2018 Secretary for the Women’s Council of Realtors NEO, and served on the board of the National Association of Realtors Young Professional Network in 2016. In her remaining free hours, she most enjoys time spent with her family and loved ones, and relishes the chance to travel to two favorite destinations: Myrtle Beach for its idyllic coastline, and Arizona’s Red Rocks area for its epic hiking adventures.
Looking ahead, Ashleigh has plans to continue doubling her business year-over-year, with the hopes of earning her license in Arizona to expand her business and fulfill her love for the Southwest region. For now, she’ll continue bringing her patented service to Cleveland’s aspiring homeowners, further solidifying her reputation as an agent assuredly on the rise. Now, with seven sterling years of experience in her arsenal and an ambitious eye on the road ahead, the future is without bounds for Ashleigh Vasi.
