Born and raised in Orlando, FL, Ashlee graduated from Florida State University, earning her Bachelor’s degree in Merchandising. Enthralled with the retail space and sales, she began her career, post grad, in Buying and Planning; first with Macy’s in Atlanta, GA, then with JCPenney in Dallas, TX. Longing to be back on the east coast amongst family and friends, she accepted a position working for Belk in Charlotte in 2012. Held various positions over her 5 years there, and ended her 12 year Corporate Retail career in 2017, making the change to Real Estate and she hasn’t looked back.
No stranger to the home buying process and the art of relocation, Ashlee was 23 when she purchased her first condo, and has owned a home in every city she has lived. She has always had a keen interest in real estate, and passionately relates to the joy and experience of home ownership. Having moved around quite a bit, she understands the needs to anticipate when undergoing relocation, enabling her buyers to feel confident when the time comes to make their offer. She has sold in popular Charlotte neighborhoods such as SouthPark, Myers Park, Cotswold, Elizabeth, Plaza Midwood, as well as, South and Southwest Charlotte areas.
Her key to brokerage success is building relationships with her clients, learning about their individual needs and wants, ensuring they experience a transaction they feel great about. She currently resides in the Palisades, Southwest Charlotte, and when she’s not selling real estate you can find her walking her rescue lab, Sadie, enjoying the outdoors, or spending quality time with her family and nephews, Jace and Hayes.
“Ashlee was awesome. She knew the area (South Charlotte) and advised us on pricing the property to sell quickly (and to make it so there would not be any problems when it came time for the appraisal). She aggressively represented our interests throughout the process and found us a new home in a short amount of time after our buyers wanted a quick close over the holidays.” - Spencer Hoisington (Home Owner)
“I will recommend Ashlee continuously due to her honesty, knowledge of real estate sales, hard work to see that my property sold in a Speedy manner and left no stone unturned to see it was a good deal all around!” - Paula Withrow (Home Owner)
“Prior to beginning the home-buying process, we were dreading the search for a real estate agent. After stumbling across our now home online, we went to an open house and were so happy to meet Ashlee! She was warm, friendly, and so knowledgeable about the Charlotte real estate market. The next day, we asked Ashlee to be our agent, and placed an offer on the house. She answered all of our questions, offered helpful advice, and updated us on the next steps throughout the process. We highly recommend Ashlee to anyone looking for a first, or new home!” - Sarah Beth and Cody Munson (Client)
“Ashlee Durrance was wonderful to work with and made the home-buying experience not only less intimidating but more enjoyable than we could have ever hoped! She kept us in the loop via friendly emails even when we took a break from house-searching for a few months, and picked right back up with us when we were ready again. She led us right to our dream house and helped us imagine its potential, so when we finally had a housewarming party after a few upgrades, we know Ashlee had to be there - and she was! She is kind, knowledgeable, and feels like a friend from the beginning. Ashlee is everything you’d look for in a realtor. Thanks so much for everything, Ashlee!” - Carolyn Genay, William Snyder (Home Owner)
“Ashlee was extremely well prepared and organized. She had visited each location the day prior and was incredibly insightful throughout the process. Her hard work and knowledge made for a very successful visit to Charlotte and helped me find exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend Ashlee to anyone looking for a new home or rental in the Charlotte, NC area. She was a true professional and a genuine person.” - Stephen D. (Sr. Consultant, Navigant)
“I met Ashlee fall of 2018 when she came to my house to meet her future dog, Sadie. We connected instantly and before the meeting was over she was my realtor for our upcoming move. She did an awesome job, always helpful, friendly, and we always had a fun time looking at houses. I will be more than happy to recommend her to anyone that is in the market. Thanks Ashlee!” - Kelly Cupples (Home Owner)
