Real Estate Agent Ashley Sandahl
Born and raised in New England and transplanted to North Carolina, Ashley Sandahl has the perfect combination of northeastern tenacity and southern hospitality. As a second generation Realtor® and Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) she has a special understanding of the needs, considerations, and goals of real estate buyers and sellers ages 55 and older. Since the age of 5, Ashley has been an avid horse owner and rider; her heart, as well as vast experience, lay with the sale of equestrian properties. With all of the horse-related perks that Tryon Horse County and the Carolina Foothills have to offer, it was a no-brainer for her to relocate to this area.
Ashley moved here to WNC in 2015 from Cape Cod, MA on a whim. She was looking for a funky, foodie, dog/horse-friendly mountain town that wasn’t too cold or far from the east coast. The plan was never to stay, but Saluda has since become the small town she always dreamed of. Ashley is now greatly involved in her community in many ways: She recently played the lead role in a play at Mountain page Theatre, she cooks breakfast for the Veterans in Saluda every month at the Saluda Fire Station, she is on the board of Saluda Living In Place (SLIP), she will be volunteering with the YAK (Young Actors Krew) after school program this year, and she has recently started her own 501(c)(3) non-profit called Excuse Us While We Succeed, which is dedicated to helping women entrepreneurs open their own businesses and thrive.
Ashley’s little sidekick, her 4-year-old daughter Nora, is her pride and joy. Before motherhood, Ashley was a keen adventurer and looks forward to days of snowboarding, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, and mountain biking with Nora. Ashley and Nora love to spend their days outside with their black lab, appreciating the beauty of Saluda’s forests and rivers, and being stewards of this beautiful earth.
In real estate, Ashley strives to ensure that the buying or selling process is successful and as stress-free as possible. Ashley Is available day or night to help with all of your real estate needs. She would love to help you buy, sell or invest, downsize, upsize, or retire.
"We put Ashley through her paces with a search that had many twists and turns. But she stuck with us even though we backed out of a couple of deals, and ultimately she helped us find the perfect place. The market here has been nuts, and we weren’t local so Ashley needed to be at the ready anytime something became available that we were interested in, and she was. Ashley was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend her."
"Ashley is a fantastic agent. She immediately responded to my request, went above and beyond and set up searches and showings according to my criteria. She has great knowledge of the area, of real estate business and gave me great references as to real estate lawyers, contractors and services in the area. A+ recommendation!!!"
"Ashley has been great from start to finish! We were not planning on selling our home, however, she reached out to us as the neighborhood we were in is a great area & there was lots of interest. We decided to take the leap & she more than met our expectations. We are so happy with how the sale went & Ashley really went above & beyond to make sure we were taken care of."
"Ashley made our house dreams come true, not only did she find us an amazing location but she helped us tremendously with hiccups that came up along the way. She fought for us when we needed her to, and was just terrific through the process. Would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home in the area."
"Ashley helped me sell my home in the Asheville area. As anyone will know there is a fair amount of panic and unease when selling a home especially if you have never done it before. Ashley helped keep me calm and explained things to me which is important when you don't know much about what you are doing. She put up with calls at odd hours and was always friendly and helpful. She not only made the process easy but made me feel like I had a friend looking out for my best interest. She got me the best price for my home and quickly. Thank you Ashley for all you did!"
