Over her career, Ashley has focused on agricultural property and has experience with a multitude of property types including dry and irrigated cropland, rural residential properties, permanent plantings such as vineyards, orchards, and blueberries, as well as more complex agricultural properties such as wineries, fertilizer plants, and commodity storage warehouses to name a few.
In addition to her appraisal career, she taught farm and ranch appraisal at Oregon State University in 2013 and has continued to expand her knowledge base of production agricultural real property, with a focus on the vineyard and winery industry. The extensive training and coursework has completed, such as introduction to viticulture, introduction to winemaking, and winery design and processing, combined with over ten years of experience with agricultural real property, gives her a unique skill set that will benefit both buyers and sellers.

She has a strong work ethic, is a natural communicator, and enjoys all aspects of working with people. She values her faith, her family, and holds honesty and integrity to the highest regard.
She currently resides in Southwest Medford with her husband, two daughters, yellow lab, rescued cat, and two crazy goats on their 20 acres they call “Hilltop Farms.” She is an entrepreneur and has founded and ran multiple small businesses in which relationships with her customers are at the core. She enjoys living in rural southern Oregon, and in her free time enjoys traveling with her family, including camping and visiting national parks or taking their CJ-8 Scrambler out on the trails.
Dear Robert, I think you are one of the nicest people on the planet, and for sure the best realtor. Thank you for all your hard work, great advice, patience, and for sticking in there with me. You really went "above and beyond". The world is a better place with people like you in it and I feel really lucky to have crossed paths with you"

"We appreciated Tim's hard work. We had 2 different real estate companies prior to meeting you, over the time of a couple years they each brought us 1 prospective buyer. You in turn brought us numerous prospective buyers along with several offers, with a final close in under 2 years. We feel that you had a knowledge of where and how to market our business so it was marketed in the right places and to the right people. As you well know when the sale was finalized it was at our asking price with little or no haggling.
We appreciate the fact that you were available 7 days a week, and willing to show the business even on a Sunday with very little notice. Tim Thank you once again.

"We were referred to Jason a few years ago. We were looking for our dream rural property, however, competition was high and inventory was low. Jason found us a great starter home until the right property came along. He continued to keep looking for us; one day we received a phone call that he “thinks he found the one.” We drove out to that day, and we immediately knew Jason was right ~ This was the dream property we had been waiting for! Jason stayed on top of every detail, and we can't thank him enough for listening to all of our needs and wants and finding the perfect property for our family. His attention to detail, care for his customers, integrity, understanding of the market, and work ethic shined every step of the way!"
