Ashley Brinkman

Ashley Brinkman



Like most Austinites, Ashley fell in love with Austin in college and though she left her home state, (TX gal, born and raised!) for a short time to the Midwest to work in an advertising agency, she quickly returned to her favorite city to begin her career in Real Estate.

Ashley's strong work ethic, passion for people, marketing background and service industry experience meets the demands of the Austin real estate market. Ms. Brinkman started her career in property management, leasing and investment sales in the UT area. She then transitioned to Prudential Texas Realty (now Berkshire Hathaway) on one of the top producing teams not only in Texas, but the nation. After her years in residential sales, Ashley accepted a new challenge and took the responsibility of selling and marketing two, 4-Star Austin Energy Green condominium projects in the Central Austin area for a developer and has now found herself at Realty Austin (voted one of Austin's Best Places to work!). While she has an Accredited Buyer's Representative accreditation (ABR) Ashley thinks she is fantastic with "hand holding" first time buyers and walking them through the purchase process, and she has the testimonials to prove it! Her enjoyment for marketing and experience helps Sellers receive maximum exposure as well. Ashley prides herself on being honest. She strives to keep communication open and has a "straight shooter" type of attitude which many people appreciate.

Ashley never wants to stop growing as a person. She thrives from meeting new people, continuing her real estate education, and constantly pushing herself to achieve her real estate (and personal goals). With that she loves to travel and photography is a big hobby of hers. Her mantra just may be "work hard, play harder" as Ashley likes to fully enjoy life. She can be found around Austin quite a bit, jogging Lady Bird Lake or in Northwest hills, playing recreational sports like kickball and softball, volunteering with Big Brother Big Sister and trying new, "hip" restaurants in town.

I highly recommend Ashley Brinkman. She represented me during my recent home purchase. She is personable, responsive, and very knowledgeable. As a first time homebuyer, it was great to have her guide me through the process and answer all of my questions. She definitely made it an easy and enjoyable process.

Ashley Brinkman was great to work with. She knows her business inside and out and was always very personable and fun to work with. She replies to all emails within minutes and would drop everything to meet with us to show us a house right away. We were a little worried about our short closing time for our sale. Ashley generated 6 offers in less than a week and we sold for over asking. I would highly recommend Ashley for anyone wanting to make the process as smooth and painless as possible.

Ashley was not only my realtor but a good friend of mine since the moment I moved to Austin. She did more than just sell me a condo but introduced me to Austin, new places, new friends, cool finds, and open arms. She was readily available at all hours of the day and when asked a question or I needed help she was able to find an answer or make something work. She also had a good search that was fitting to my preferences when looking for places. I would highly recommend her to others! My closing could have been much more of a nightmare, but she was able to be there to see the thing through and make it happen. She was even there with me to sign the final papers--this was so reassuring and treated me to lunch to celebrate:) I now have a new place to call my own, thanks to her and a great friend from this whole experience. Thank you, Ashley Brinkman and Realty Austin, I couldn't have done it without you!

After 3 plus years, my wife and I have a home again and Ashley Brinkman and the whole team at Realty Austin were awesome to work with. The process was straight forward and Ashley and crew kept us on top of everything every step of the way. Thank you Realty Austin... We will be recommending you to anyone and everyone we meet.

Ashley Brinkman exceeded my expectations a Realtor provides. Simply said, she is extremely hard working and extremely knowledgeable about the Austin market. She is very good with technology which allowed me to shop for property from out of town and still get my offer in as if was staying in Austin. Even after the sell she continues to support the transition of my taking control of the property, demonstrating excellent service after the sell. I highly recommend Ashley to anyone shopping for Austin Area property.

My experience with Ashley was great. This is the second time I have used her to purchase a home and I used her many years ago to find a rental property. Since then, I have referred her to numerous friends and they all agree. She works extremely hard to find you the perfect home. She is patient, even when her clients (me) are being difficult and she has lots of wonderful ideas and resources.

I now consider Ashely more than a Relator, but a friend. I believe Realty Austin is VERY lucky to have her as part of the team. She will undoubtedly go far.

My wife and I worked with Ashley Brinkman when we relocated to Austin on short notice earlier this year. Ashley's insight and broad knowledge of the Austin area helped us to determine which neighborhoods best met our criteria, and at the end of the day, Ashley found us the perfect home in our #1 neighborhood! Ashley was always available when we needed her, provided solid advice throughout the home buying process, and helped to make the closing as smooth as ever. I would recommend to anyone. Ashley, we can't thank you enough!

Ashley Brinkman made building my first home an absolute breeze! She's very knowledgeable with the entire process and always available to answer any questions I had. She even took the time to get back to me while she was on vacation out of the country! She joined me at my builders studio appointment so she could give me tips on what was popular in today's market as I wanted to keep resale in mind. That's only a small example of the excellent service you can expect when dealing with Ashley. I look forward to working with her in the future and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. Her passion, knowledge and enthusiasm for what she does really shows... just my opinion but that's the kind of person I like to work with on such a big financial decision.

Ashley was amazing! She helped us all the way through the building process and at closing. She kept in touch while the house was being built and she worked with our builder to ensure everything was done correctly. She helped us to ask the right questions and was always there when I needed advise about our loan. She got us a garage door opener and made us a beautiful wreath and gift basket as a house warming gift. She went over and above our expectations. I will definitely be recommending her to my friends!

My experience working with Ashley was wonderful. She went above and beyond in helping us to find our home. She was patient with us and we were picky. She never pushed us in to a home that wasn’t right for us, and she was always positive, optimistic, and encouraging, telling us that we would know when it was right. We were first time buyers and she did a great job keeping us informed, answering all of our questions, and walking us through the process. We could not have been more happy with her and fully intend to recommend her to our friends and family.

I have known Ashley a long time, and I cannot tell you how impressed I was with her professionalism, knowledge, and experience. It makes me so proud to see what an amazing realtor she has become. Again, great experience, and would not hesitate to work with her again.

Ever since Ashley reached out to me back in November of last year, she has continually given me the comfort and confidence to inquire about different aspects of the home searching process. Not only that, but she was very pro-active in supplying me with relevant and helpful materials about what to expect at each stage of purchasing a home.

What I think I enjoyed most about Ashley, was that there was a period of a few months in which I was out of contact with her because I was saving up money and so on, and after a while she re-established contact with me to ask if there was anything that I needed or wanted to know about the housing market and if I was still interested in purchasing. This gesture really made me feel like she was interested in helping me reach my goal of being a homeowner.

Subsequent to that, anytime I wanted to view a property, she would not hesitate to work around my schedule to show me the home. I'm very involved with my job so the fact that Ashley did not bat an eye about viewing properties later in the evening really meant a lot to me. She was extremely knowledgeable about the homes we visited, what to look for, and commanded a great grasp of making one feel comfortable with home buying.

Once I finally selected the home I desired, Ashley continued to be a wonderful resource and kept me apprised of the important things I needed to collect and take care of in anticipation of closing. I honestly believe her efforts made the process so much easier.

In sum, working with Ashley was an incredible experience. She was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and most of all genuine in all that she did. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend her to anyone who is thinking of becoming a homeowner. I only hope that my words can serve in some way to reflect just how pleasurable it was to have her as my guide.

Some time small word make a big meaning.. To write the comment about Ashley, she is professional, extra ordinary and the big thing she is always available to help her client.

Dennis and I were very impressed with Ashley. She was very professional and provided us with personal service. She answered all our questions in a timely manner. She kept us abreast of the process of buying a home. We found the perfect house and give Ashley credit for helping us find it! The closing went very smoothly. We are anxious to get settled in. We would definitely recommend Ashley to our family and friends. Ashley is was truly a pleasure to work with!

Ashley did a great job for me, as usual. She has been my agent on two different occasions and I think she is fantastic. She was knowledgeable about pricing in my area so we set my asking price a little bit above what I thought we would, but it completely paid off. We received multiple offers at or above the asking price and I ended up getting more than I thought would be possible for my sale. Despite multiple roadblocks popping up during the selling, she kept things on track and was always quick to address issues and my concerns. I would recommend Ashley to anyone because she's really incredible at what she does.

As first time buyers in a very competitive market, Ashley Brinkman made the difference for us! I will not be able to say enough good things about her. She was extremely timely, dependable, helpful, friendly and most important, GREAT at what she does. We had multiple offers to compete with and were not expecting good news but we got the call from Ashley with the best news! I now write this review from my new living room. The Realty Austin team was amazing to work with as well. If you are in the market for a new home, you can't go wrong with Realty Austin and especially Ashley Brinkman!

I could not have asked for a better home-buying experience than what Ashley was able to provide. Shortly after getting married, my husband and I wanted to jump into buying a house before we thought all the Austin area homes would be gone. Neither of us knew how the process worked, but Ashley went above and beyond what I ever would have expected a realtor to do; guiding us through each step. She sought out every detail we felt was important in a home. She kept our budget in mind and never pressured us to look at more than we could afford. She found us the perfect location that we had never before paid attention to on the map! She answered every single question I could think of - before, during, and even after we closed. She is very easy to get a hold of and is quick to respond. To top it off, she really made our closing date special for us. And she continues to keep us informed and updated on our needs now as homeowners. I recommend Ashley to any and all of my friends and we would use her again in a heartbeat!

I highly recommend Ashley to all my friends and future homeowner. I have taken the time out to post a review to help spread the word about my great experience. Being in the military can be hard because I have been living out of a bag for the last 8 years. Finally, I have a place I can call homeit's truly a blessing. Ashely unselfish dedication to helping veterans and families find their dream homes goes beyond words. Thank you so much.

I was in the market for an investment property and Ashley's expertise was unmatched. I gave her my criteria and she was able to find multiple properties. Her knowledge of the Austin housing market along with trends helped me find a great property in a growing area I had not originally thought of. Great experience lead to exactly what I wanted and I would recommend Ashley to any range of buyer.

-Jason Harris 2014

My experience with Ashley was 100% positive. As a first time home buyer Ashley answered all of my questions and always worked around my schedule. I have recommended Ashley to several of my friends and would absolutely work with her again in the future.

- Dan Riter 2011

Ashley was FANTASTIC! As a first-time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and reservations during the process. Ashley gave me no-fluff, accurate answers and helped me feel secure in my decisions. 6 months later, I have no regrets and recommend Ashley to all of my friends!

-Sarah Greenwood 2013

We feel so lucky to have had Ashley Brinkman as our AWESOME Realtor. Being first time home buyers, we really appreciated how Ashley was so informative and made sure we knew what was going on at all times throughout the process. Her availability and responsiveness were superb. Ashley was absolutely great and made everything so easy. Now we have a perfect first home for us.

-Jessica and Chase Swafford 2013

Ashley helped me when I purchased my first home. As a young professional, it was important to find a nice balance between what was "cool and hip" and what was practical. Ashley took me to see several homes that would have made a lot of sense for me in terms of my price range and functionality. When it came down to making an offer, she could sense I wasn't in love with any of those homes. At that point she told me that it was good to be practical, but I also need to have an emotional connection to a home, and that we would keep looking until we found the right one. We did! I really felt like Ashley understood my needs, and helped me to make a well rounded decision when I purchased my home. It's been almost two years since I bought my house, and I love it more every day.

-Kathleen Santos 2012

I had the pleasure of working with Ashley Brinkman through the tedious process of building my first new home. She helped prepare me for what to expect which made a huge difference when it came to inevitable delays, etc. Had I not be adequately prepared, I may have gone crazy. I also don't know anyone who works harder. She's available when you have questions and has so many connections that if she doesn't have an answer, she certainly knows someone who does. I'd definitely recommend Ashley to anyone looking to buy a home. She'll work hard so you don't have to!!

-Courtney (and Collin) Hulbert 2014

I would recommend Ashley Brinkman to any of my friends because she is tireless in the job at which she does. She was my realtor when I bought my home in 2012 as well as renting my house in 2013 and 2014. She is dedicated to her clients and ensures that their needs are met. She bought my daughter a gift as well as gave us thoughtful closing gifts. She was able to work with my crazy schedule and find houses for me that suited my needs. She really made the process quite easy. She was there every step of the way to ensure that I understood what was going as I was a first time homebuyer. If you want dedication and a knowledgeable Realtor, Ashley Brinkman is the woman for the job!

-K. Rivera 2013

We worked with Ashley over a period of several months. Ashley was fantastic, and we highly recommend her. We were looking in Austin from out of town, so she did a lot of the leg work for us (e.g., Ashley volunteered on several occasions to go take pictures of houses and email them to us). She took us around Austin several times when we came into town (once on only one days' notice), and Ashley was very helpful in listening to what we wanted and tailoring our search accordingly. Ashley was very responsive to our emails, and she made the process of looking for a house much easier. Overall, Ashley well exceeded our expectations, and anyone looking for a home in Austin should meet with her!

-Jacque Kruppa 2010

I had a very positive experience while working with Ashley to purchase my first home. She is professional but also friendly and very easy to be around. Her personality made the stressful and sometimes monotonous-feeling process of driving around and looking at properties much more enjoyable! Ashley will work very hard for you. She always returned my calls/emails promptly and went out of her way several times to make things easier for me. Ashley was very helpful, guiding me through every step of the process. She gave good sound advice but wasn't too pushy. It was clear that she had my best interest in mind and even went to bat for me when the title company gave us problems at closing. Ashley is a great realtor and I would definitely recommend her!

-Shadan Kasiri 2010

Ashley was great! She was available every time we were wanting to check out a property, even at the last minute. She was very patient with us. She took charge when she needed to, but gave us our space and let us move at our own pace, as well. She was very organized and was able to recall properties we had viewed in the past when we were unable to remember what houses we saw and what we liked about each property. She immediately picked up on the different aspects of each house that we did and did not like, which helped her suggest other properties that she thought we would be interested in looking at. She gave us her honest opinion when we asked her about things we were concerned with. She even looked after my nephew when he tagged along during some of the house searches, which gave my husband and me a chance to look at properties. I would definitely recommend Ashley Brinkman to anyone who is wanting to buy a home.

-Marah and Nick Nemec 2012

Ashley did a fabulous job finding a house for us. She listened well to what we wanted and went the extra mile to show us houses in those areas. We were buying while out of state and she did a great job of sending virtual tours of all the houses she viewed for us. She was very timely and responsive, professional yet fun and worked hard for us at odd hours of the day and week. We highly recommend Ashley as a buying agent for the Austin area!

-Lindy and Todd Watkins 2013

Ashley was very helpful and answered all of our emails and phone calls very quickly! We wanted a 4 bedroom house with a pool, big yard, and 2 1/2 baths! We got it and could not be more happy! We had a wonderful experience and would HIGHLY recommend Ashley to everyone.
