Ashley J. Michael
As a Pacific Northwest native, Arizona has always been a popular destination for holiday getaways, second homes, and retirement, but over the course of the past two years, Arizona real estate has seen a major shift in growth, fruitful investment opportunities of all kinds, and more approachable solutions for those looking for a better quality of life in all age demographics.
As one of Seattle’s top real estate professionals for the past 18+ years, Ashley J. Hayes Michael, is known as “UrbanAsh” for her exceptional knowledge and experience in living and investing within the city. She is currently the Managing Broker (Washington State) and Principal Broker (Oregon State) of a talented team of agents at Pointe3 Real Estate, as well as a Leasing Specialist and Chief Operating Officer at Seattle Rental Group.
Ashley personally jumped into the Arizona real estate market in 2020 by purchasing her first short-term rental property at the base of Camelback Mountain and, in December 2021, purchasing another home in Biltmore Heights. Seeking a hyperlocal firm that shared the same high touch and like-minded approach to expertly servicing their client’s needs, she proudly joined The Brokery, coining herself as “DesertAsh.” She couldn’t be more excited to be expanding her service offerings to further assist her existing clients’ needs in Washington/Oregon, as well as taking on new clients in Arizona.
Since the beginning of her career, Ashley has helped countless clients find their dream homes or investment properties and thoroughly enjoys the process of listing, marketing, and selling homes and condominiums alike. Her guidance has been sought out by numerous families, as well as business leaders, entrepreneurs, professional athletes, and employees from the country’s largest companies, including Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Starbucks, Boeing, and Amazon.
Ashley maintains a 5-star Zillow rating as a Premier Agent, and has received the Five Star Professional Award for the last 10 consecutive years for her high production and industry-leading service. Ashley is also a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, widely regarded for her expertise, and has been featured as a home buyer and broker on the HGTV series House Hunters Seattle. She is proud to be a member of several exclusive broker-only strategy groups and also serves on her HOA Architectural Control Committee as Chairman.
Looking to the future, Ashley is already making plans to help her clients succeed in both Seattle and the Valley of the Sun – there is so much the two markets have in common, and yet, they are very different. Working with someone who understands and strategizes from both perspectives will put you in the best position for your next move in real estate.
