Ashley was really easy to reach and work with for my first time home buying process. She provided a lot of valuable information and advice while viewing homes (was able to quickly schedule appointments) and making offers. She also continues to help with my general real estate questions. Would definitely work with her again!
Ashley Dolan is the best! She is very knowledgeable and reliable. She effectively walked us through the whole home selling process. Ashley was always in contact with us providing us with step by step guidelines. She is super friendly and I would definitely recommend her to my friends.
Ashley helped a friend of mine find his home really quickly, and I contacted her hoping for the same. She totally delivered, and in a couple of weeks we had entered in a mutual agreement to purchase our home. Incredible. Thanks Ashley!

This was our second home purchase with Ashley. We chose to work with her a second time because of her expertise, intuition, dedication and phenomenal ability get the deal done in such a competitive market even when our offer wasn’t as strong as others. She was able to quickly identify our needs even when we struggled to express them. She’s patient and flexible and helped us navigate this competitive market, advising us of risks and helping us build a competitive offer that could go toe-to-toe with all cash offers. Ashley’s husband John “Adam” also helped us in our search. The two of them make an amazing team! I’m so glad that we had the chance to work with them. Adam, knew exactly what to say to lift or spirits when we were feeling discouraged and gave us the encouragement and courage we needed. In summary, I would highly recommend Ashley and Adam to anyone, whether it be their first home or an investment, and I look forward to working with her again.

Ashley went above and beyond in so many ways! I was continually amazed at how much she did to work with us as a couple and meet us individually. Weekend phone calls, evening open houses, and presenting our offer in person to give us a foot forward were all ways she absolutely impressed me and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for or selling a home, especially to veterans!
-Ruth S., Seattle
Super job in finding our home. She is always very professional. I would recommend her to friends and family.

Ashley did a great job as my real estate agent. She did not sugar coat anything and was straight forward and quickly to the point at all times, which I appreciated greatly. She was very punctual and very good at meeting me all over the city and at all times of the day to find a house that was perfct for me, which we did.
-Mike Gruzynski, Shoreline
Ashley Dolan was extremely helpful in bringing me up to speed on the current market trends and approaches used by sellers in pricing to sell versus bidding competition. She directed me to the properties that best met my needs for space and commute as well as general quality of life.
-Robert Dillingham, Seattle
Ashley is a bright, intelligent, focused young woman who presented herself with knowledge of real estate, a positive attitude, progressive thinking, and is a very nice person. I made my choice of Ashley following our first conversation. Through the entire process from the commitment to selling my house to the "Closing", Ashley and her husband, Adam, were supportive and helpfull which reduced my stress and kept me calm and positive.
I could not have picked a better broker to sell my home. I have talked to family and friends about how "great" Ashley is, and would recommend Ashley Dolan to everyone needing her services. Great job!!!
Ashley Dolan's husband, Adam, is also a broker with Berkshire Hathaway. They make an impressive team, and individually, their performances were excellent!

Ashley was great to work with. She is incredibly knowledgable and made us feel at ease with the entire process. From our first question to the day we closed on our home with the 3rd highest offer, I knew that Ashley had our best interest in mind and would advocate for the house we truly wanted. Iwould absolutely recommend Ashley and have!

My husband and I met Ashley Dolan at an open house. We were very new to real estate and were looking at homes to get ideas about locations and features-getting our toes wet. She struck up a very pleasant and informative conversation with us and invited us to attend a home-buying class at heroffice to go over the ins and outs of the process. My husband and I are both veterans and were looking at using a VA Home Loan, which adds a little more complexity to the operation. Ashley knows the process inside and out and how to explain it to newbies. She is very proactive in making sure NO detail is overlooked. She even checked up on the bank and the VA inspectors to make sure things were moving forward with the loan. When problems arose with home inspections, she worked toward solving them and/or advised us when we should let something go & why. She also gave us some tips that saved us from potentially bad situations. She helped keep us motivated when things seemed slow/tedious/bleak. Most importantly, she listened to us and NEVER tried to push us out of our comfort zone, either with a house itself or with the financials. I have heard scary stories from friends, family, and co-workers about how stressful buying a house can be, but Ashley made the process MUCH easier! She gives great advice and we ended up purchasing a wonderful home thanks to her efforts. Agents want to sell houses, but this broker wants to make certain you get what you're paying for and, most importantly, that you love what you get.

Ashley is a friend, a colleague and my nominee for "Best R.E. Agent in Seattle". She listed my townhouse just before Christmas, 2015 and worked diligently and intelligently to market it, to follow up once a sale was agreed, and to assure the completion of the contract on time to the satisfaction of all involved parties. She was tireless in her singleminded representation of my interests throughout the process.
Ashley went above and beyond her responsibilities as an agent by pitching in to assist me in packing up and clearing the house of the staging and of the final furnishings in order to assure that the new owners could take possession on a tight schedule when I became ill. I cannot recommend Ashley highly enough as an agent on either the listing or the selling side, and I would be happy to discuss the quality of her service with anyone who is considering using her.

Ashley Dolan exhibits outstanding work ethic and was attentive to all our needs as buyers unfamiliar with the West Seattle market. She truly embodies the meaning of customer service and not once did we feel pressured to make a decision we were not comfortable with. Ashley went above and beyond tohelp us find the right home. We greatly appreciated her willingness to be thorough, detailed and patient throughout the process. She was quick and determined to always go to bat on our behalf. It was truly a pleasure to work with Ashley and I would recommend her and Berkshire Hathaway to first-time or experienced homebuyers

As a new home buyer, Ashley helped us understand every step of the process. We really don't think we would have had such a smooth closing without her.
- Alicia & Nate - Seattle, WA
We highly recommend Ashely Dolan as a realtor! When it was time to sell our starter home we simply thought that any realtor would be fine. Wow, were we wrong! Our experience trying to sell our home was so discouraging. And after having several offers removed post-inspection we decided we needed to find someone new to work with.
In stepped Ashley. Her understanding and practice of "full-service" realty was exactly what we needed. She had tremendous knowledge and the professional skills to help us navigate what we needed to do to get our older home back on the market. She utilized her contacts to help us with the necessary repairs and she was the one to coordinate all the appointments and work.
Every step of the way she communicated very clearly and thoroughly with us and she was kind and respectful of our needs as a family. We never felt like we were a "small" client. Ashley put so much time and energy into selling our home. And throughout the process she was gently encouraging us, which was no small thing considering we had been so discouraged in our previous attempts to sell.
We sold our home for over asking-price with multiple offers thanks to Ashley's expertise.
We cannot say enough wonderful things about her work. It is great to work with someone who has the professional skills and wisdom to buy/sell a home and the people skills to treat others well and with respect in the process. We will certainly use Ashley when we buy a home or need to sell again!

Ashley is awesome! She is more than I'd ever expected in an agent that "appears" to be as young as she does. Her presence is calming and sincere and her ethics and honesty not only inspired our confidence but complimented our personalities as well. She also helped us not only through the sale of an older home that had some "issues" and helped us sell it with full disclosure and ethically while still getting us a price that we (and the buyers) were happy with. She also did a lot of hand-holding (truly above and beyond the call of duty) during a few crucial times during the process.
- JoAnn & Donald - Seattle, WA
JP and I came to rely on Ashley's input, especially, whenever we looked at open houses. If we were on the fence about something, we knew she would have an opinion that would help us. She has a very good quality in that she can give an honest opinion about something, without seeming judgmental or critical in a bad way or making us feel like we had asked stupid questions. I honestly don’t think we would have bought the house we did, if she didn’t “approve”!
When we were finally ready to make an offer, we were 100% confident we were going to get the best deal.
It’s VERY clear that real estate is a passion for Ashley. It isn’t just a job to pay the bills. She obviously loves what she does. We always talk about if we have to move to another state that we will need to fly Ashley out to house-hunt with us, because I don’t think we will find someone as good as her!

Ashley walked us through the process of buying our first house. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. She gave us the space and time to find the right place and then answered all the questions we had about the entire process. Everything went perfectly and she made the home buying process practically stress free.

I bought my first home with Ashley at the age of 28 on a nonprofit salary and with decent credit and savings. Other agents made me know that this was all I was worth to them, but Ashley always treated me as if I was a client whose deal was going to make her a million bucks, because she genuinely cares about her clients
Ashley is one of the most intelligent and caring people I know, which are especially great qualities to have in anyone, but my good friend introduced me to her after he knew I was having trouble with my existing agent. Ashley worked with where I was financially and personally. There's no one else I would have had to help me close on a home. Actually, I am not sure anyone else would have have the patience or tenacity to do so. We had hiccups with financing and she made sure to negotiate to get me what I want and close on a complexdeal near downtown Oakland. I am incredibly satisfied by Ashley's performance and her wealth of experience, and I would recommend her to any of my close friends or family

When it came time for my wife and I to buy our new home, Ashley was the perfect blend of patience, professionalism, and perseverance. We dipped our toe in the market with an initial property and then took some time getting all of our ducks in a row - Ashley stuck with us and was happy to go at our pace, showing us only things that fit our needs and that she thought would be a good match for us. She was also able to point us towards a variety of other professionals when we need references, ranging from pest inspectors and roofers to counseling agencies and mortgage consultants. Our escrow ended up taking longer than we anticipated, due to a squirrely lender that I found, and Ashley was able to keep the lender on track, negotiate seller concessions, and fight for us as her clients, even as Ashley herself was packing and preparing her own move.
