Ashley Brinkman

Ashley Brinkman

Broker Associate


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.

It is hard to put into words that truly explain how special of an experience it was working with Wendy Crone and Ashley Brinkman. I felt taken care of, I was empowered with knowledge and informed the whole way through, and I never felt like a burden; Wendy and I went to so many different properties together, on any day of the week, any time of day. I asked countless questions, in person, through text, in email, and always received prompt and thoughtful responses no matter how late at night or early in the morning.

I am so grateful to have gone through this process with them. Anyone would be beyond lucky to have the opportunity to have them as their Realtor. Wendy went above and beyond with me, she was supportive and always watched out for my best interests. She was real with me. I have been telling everyone who mentions anything along the lines of considering buying property to reach out to Wendy and Ashley.

I hear stories of other people’s Realtors, and they are nothing like this team. This team is far and away above and beyond. There are good people in the world, and the universe takes care of you when you need it, and does so in the form of Wendy and Ashley. That might sound very intense, but I mean it.

Initially, we were concerned about Ashley because she's young (not really, but we are 47 and 57, so that can make anyone under 40 look like a pup). HOWEVER, she impressed us in our initial meeting/interview. She came prepared, was very knowledgeable and professional, and gave us the impression that she was full of energy and would take no prisoners when selling our house. She came through on all of it. We had a compressed timeline, and she didn't miss a beat. She sold our house faster than we expected, and for a price that was higher than expected. She was fantastic, and I'd strongly recommend her to anyone that asks. Realty Austin has an amazing woman in Ashley, don't let her go!

Ashley Brinkman and her team are incredible! Ashley is detailed, responsive, and her overall personality made the process smooth. It was our first time selling a home, and Ashley guided us through the process. She was very clear in her communication, and we appreciated being a part of the decisions at every step. Early on in the process, she gave us the tools and information we needed to prepare our home for the market. Our home was on the market for four days! From that point on, it was a worry-free process. A few months prior to finding Ashley, we almost made the mistake of signing a contract with an IBuyer company because we needed to sell our home fast. With Ashley and her team, we were able to sell for almost 30k more than what the IBuyer company was offering. It was because of her strategy, preparation, attention to detail, and knowledge that we did so well!

It was a delight working with Ashley Brinkman on the sale of my home! She brought tons of market insights, recommendations, and listing strategies to the table and was the perfect balance of flexible and prescriptive throughout the process. I was traveling early in the listing process, and her team even helped out with logistics and contractors. I can’t recommend Ashley and her team highly enough! #brinkmanismyhomegirl

My wife and I are extremely pleased with Ashley, Wendy, and their team. They were always responsive to our many phone calls and emails. They were happy to answer all the questions that we had as first time home buyers. The intensity of the real estate market in the greater Austin area had us a bit discouraged at times. However, no matter how desperate we felt, Ashley encouraged us to not rush into any decision. We are so glad that we took her advice. We could not be happier with the home that we purchased.

Overall, the whole process was very smooth. Here are a few highlights: 

  • Ashley sent thoughtful and encouraging letters during the home search
  • We received many gift cards
  • When we wanted to see a home but Ashley and her direct team were unavailable, another Realtor was able to fill in (thanks Paco!)
  • We were invited to outings with Ashley and her other clients
  • We received many recommendations for home buying services
  • On the closing day, she gave us a bottle of Rosé and a custom metalwork decal
  • She invited us to her birthday party!

We were very pleased with the job that Ashley Brinkman did in listing, marketing and selling our rental property. We wanted to make some improvements to the house quickly, and Ashley provided referrals to professional and capable contractors who did their jobs very well. The photos that she arranged to have posted online were top-notch, and the virtual staging showed off the house’s potential. Ashley set up open-houses which quickly generated interest and resulted in the full price offer that we accepted. We will certainly recommend Ashley Brinkman to our friends, family, and business associates when they are looking for a first-class Realtor. She is a hard worker.
We were also pleased with the other members of the team. Tasha Moore and Jennifer Herbert both handled their team positions in professional, efficient and pleasant manners. If I missed mentioning someone’s name, it is not an intentional omission. We were well satisfied with everyone we interacted with at Realty Austin.

Ashley did a great job! She was very professional! She was always available to answer any questions we had and always responded in a timely fashion! We would not hesitate to recommend her to all of our friends and business associates if they ever need any assistance in selling their properties! It was a pleasure to do business with her! Realty Austin is indeed fortunate to have Ashley on their team!

Ashley is the best choice when buying a home. Her experience and knowledge were imperative during the home buying process. She takes time to understand her client's needs and immediately responds to questions and concerns. She is patient during the process and extremely trustworthy. Not to mention she is an incredibly kind and thoughtful person. I highly recommend.

Where to begin? It's taken me a while to compose a review because I can't adequately express how wonderful Ashley and her team are. First of all, what DON'T they know about buying and selling? If you're looking for a well-rounded powerhouse of talent and knowledge, look no further. Ashley is organized, responsive, and driven to succeed/win. She was more than equipped to handle my anxiety/energy/concerns during both the buying and selling process. Do you want to go fast? She'll put the pedal to the metal. Want to take the extended route? That's okay too! Regardless of your experience, she'll supply all the necessary tools to get you where you need to be. We bought (and sold) with Brinkman and wouldn't have it any other way!

Ashley is hilarious, fun, and honest, which made our buying experience way more enjoyable than buying a house should be... but most importantly, she is incredibly knowledgeable about the market in Austin and surrounding cities. Ashley made the purchase of our first investment house one that we felt comfortable and confident in - before, during, and after the sale. She was responsive and resourceful and has a great team who also model these qualities. We will 100% be using Ashley for our future real estate purchases. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I want to start by saying that Realty Austin is #1 in Austin for a reason. My partner and I recently closed on a home, with the help of Ashley Brinkman's assistant, Wendy Crone, and other members of the Realty Austin team. The whole experience from beginning to end was AMAZING! They answered every single question we had, as naive as it seemed to be that we are first-time homeowners. They explained every step of the way and walked us through multiple open houses. We never felt pressured from our agent, and she was very accommodating and friendly. She made herself available at any time and responded very promptly, always keeping her professionalism. I am absolutely HAPPY and THANKFUL for Realty Austin team and helping us find our new home!

Ashley was amazing to work with! This was our first time buying so it's safe to say we were a little nervous, but she was so helpful with everything and made us feel confident and happy with all the decisions to be made. She addressed all our concerns and went out of her way to make sure we were satisfied throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend her if you are looking to buy in the Austin area!

Ashley got me through the stressful and often frustrating process of viewing homes, getting financing, and then closing the deal over several months. I'm a tough customer. I'm extremely picky. I was also frustrated at how expensive the housing market had become for buyers, having lived in Austin for over 30 years. But she stuck with me. She would listen to me complain about this and then keep on searching with me. Even after I bought my house, she continued to give advice on a number of things that any first-time buyer needs to know, like claiming homestead exemptions. All that to say, if you are considering buying, Ashley will work hard for you and she seems genuinely concerned that her clients get what they want. She got me through a challenging and intimidating process and I thank her for that.

Ashley helped me through buying my first home. It was overwhelming and confusing but Ashley walked me through the process step by step and made me feel confident about the choices I was making. She's available to help 24/7 and even after I bought with new homeowner questions. I don't know how she does it. She's truly the best and I'm so glad I chose her.

Working with Ashley Brinkman to purchase my home in North Austin this year was a great experience! I would recommend her to anyone! She truly cares about her clients and is dedicated to helping you find the right place to call home. She was patient and compassionate throughout my home buying experience and worked around the clock to make sure I was a happy client. Thanks, Ashley!

Ashley was very accommodating, knowledgeable and fun to work with. She was available whenever we had a question or needed some guidance. She always kept us updated and explained things in terms we could understand. Ashley is a very positive and kind person, and easy to communicate with. She made the experience seamless and stress-free! I would highly recommend Ashley Brinkman to anyone looking for a house in the Austin area.

My experience was flawless. Ashley moved with a sense of urgency which we had discussed that I valued that and she matched my intensity in getting the house sold quickly. She also was able to create a three-way win where I got the asking price for my house, the buyers go the property they wanted and fast, and my renters that were in there who were struggling with the concept of having to move got to stay. It was perfect. Ashley let me know what to expect every step of the way and I was as informed as I wanted to be throughout the process. It was a great experience and I will recommend her to anyone.

Ashley was great to work with. She did a great job of helping plan, stage and sell our house at our asking price, what more could we ask for! I will definitely recommend Ashley to anyone need a Realtor in the Austin area.

Brinkman is our homegirl, again! Ashley was our Realtor with buying our first home about five years ago. Now, we sold our first home and purchased our second with her a few months ago and couldn't be happier, again! She is just AWESOME! We had been looking for a long time but knew that this next house would be ours for many years to come, so we wanted to be picky and take our time in choosing. She was patient with us and supported us 100%. She knows her stuff, y'all. Throughout the whole process, Ashley had the best ways to go about everything that came up. We were in a situation to submit best and final offer at a certain point. This situation was very new to us and got us nervous, but she knew exactly what to do for us to be picked. She is thorough, dedicated, smart, and just a fun person to be around that makes the whole house buying/selling process a breeze. Ashley is so very nice to show appreciation for her clients, but I hope she knows how much we appreciate our Realtor and friend!

Ashley was amazing in working with us on our home search. As you know, buying, selling and relocating can be very stressful. Ashley made us feel very comfortable and made the experience a pleasure. She is quite an asset to Realty Austin, and we highly recommend her.

We were lucky enough to work with Ashley Brinkman for our second purchase this fall. We can't say enough great things about the experience. Ashley and her team went above and beyond for us from the start to the very end of the process. Would highly recommend her for anyone searching for a home! She makes the process so easy and explains everything to you every step of the way. We walked away from the experience very happy and very informed. Thank you, Ashley!

Ashley is simply amazing. As a first time home buyer, the entire home buying process was foreign to me. Ashley took the time to go through everything in as much detail as I needed. I know she is constantly working with multiple clients, but her attention to detail, quick responsiveness, and constant availability always made me feel like I was her focus. Not only is she exceptional at her job, but she is also fun to be around. Her bright personality made working together and walk-throughs an enjoyable experience. She helped make the entire home buying process for me a breeze, and I will undoubtedly turn to Ashley and her team for my future home buying needs.

Curtis Stewart

We closed on our properties almost 7 months ago and I am still as eager as I was at closing, to share my thoughts about working with Ashley through these experiences. There is nothing easy about the buying process, but Ashley made this tough process fun. Ashley always spoke candidly, and honestly about her thoughts...In the end, I feel she always represented our best interests and personal goals. Ashley responds to all communication quickly and with detail. I highly recommend working with Ashley Brinkman because she is a wealth of knowledge and makes the process as enjoyable as it can be!

Ashley was absolutely fantastic. This is the second home I’ve purchased with the help of Ashley’s services and just like the first time; she surpassed all expectations. Ashley is so easy to get a hold of, and she is able to answer any and all questions that I have. She went out of her way to make sure my wife and I were comfortable with each step of the home buying process. It’s obvious to anyone who works with Ashley that she loves her job and she genuinely enjoys providing excellent service. I’ve recommended Ashley already to my friends and will continue to do so.

My husband and I REALLY enjoyed working with Ashley Brinkman and her assistant, Hannah Papermaster, from Realty Austin. They both are very responsive, timely, hands-on, and professional. They were always on the ball, so we did not have to worry that something would fall through the cracks of the stressful home buying process. They are also very genuine and down to earth people which made it easy to work with them. Ashley helped to ease our concerns, got us the information we needed quickly, and even responded to late night texts and emails. She knows her stuff when it comes to real estate and the housing market, and she was able to explain it in a way that made sense to us as first time home buyers. Ashley even strongly suggested writing a letter to the sellers to accompany our offer which is ultimately what won us the bid. She even went to bat for us with the mortgage company when interest rates were spiking, and they were able to lower it to a very reasonable amount. We are grateful for all of the help, support, and comfort that we had working with Ashley, Hannah, and Realty Austin, and for the fact that they have committed to keeping in touch and making sure we are aware of post-moving 'things to know' that we would otherwise have no idea about. We highly recommend working with this group!

Ashley Brinkman is an excellent Realtor. My home was under contract in a very short amount of time, and the closing was seamless. I highly recommend Ashley as an agent. She knows her stuff!

Jaime Grange

Ashley was a pleasure to work with during our first-time home buying experience. Always responsive, she has an apparent dedication to excellence along with plenty of passion for her work, and her wealth of knowledge about the Austin market and nuances of the buying process was invaluable. Ashley is a friendly, genuine, and straightforward person who also has plenty of patience for people like myself who like to be thorough and fully informed. While we were looking at the “entry-level” home market, she made us feel just as important as a high-end buyer, and she clearly has a solid clientele list (for a good reason!). Her preparedness was instrumental in our closing, which went as planned and without surprises. After the sale, Ashley made it a point to check in and remain in touch as a resource for our questions. She provided several options for recommended contractors and agents to ease the transition into the new home, sent out tips and reminders throughout the year (such as tax time items), and even sent us delicious holiday treats. As long as we remain in the Austin market, Ashley will be our Realtor without question.

You are IN LUCK if you have Ashley Brinkman as your real estate agent! This girl gets things done! I remember meeting her for my first day of house hunting; she had printed out the listings of each property we were visiting and had planned what order we would see them in. By the last listing, I was disappointed that the houses I had been excited to see, were not what I expected in person. By casual conversation with another Realtor, we were directed down the street to an open house that I had not seen yet. Ashley was polite and professional as we entered my (now) future home! I can't explain how personable Ashley is, and how easy to talk to. She understands the concerns and common questions of her buyers, as she has been through the same process herself. Ashley was honest about the pros and cons of the deal, what needed work, potential downsides, etc., and gave her honest opinion in every situation. She has your best interest in mind and wants to find you the perfect home! And now that I've closed, I feel like part of the Ashley Buyers Club, with rewards like her client appreciation parties, email reminders about tax benefits, and recommendations on local house cleaners, pest control, and locksmiths! Thanks for your continuing hard work Ashley!

Ashley is an amazing Realtor and a delightful person. We had the pleasure of having her work for us. Ashley did an incredible job representing both Katie and I; both in giving us information and in going to bat for us when it really counted. We cannot recommend Ashley enough. We will surely give as many referrals as we can.

Jake Marx

December 1 2017

I have only positive things to say about Ashley. She was on the ball with everything, especially when things got messy with the customer. Having bought two homes using two different agents, we now know how a good agent operates. If we ever purchase another home, we will definitely use Ashley again.

Jordan Hogan

Ashley was very helpful and quick to get back with us on all items sent to her. I'm actually an on-site Sales Consultant with a builder and I already refer business to her. I will continue to send her folks.

First-time homebuyer + relocation from out-of-state = potential to be an absolutely terrifying process. Luckily, I had Ashley as my Realtor. She made buying a home easier than my last car purchase! Her deep knowledge of Austin was incredibly helpful to someone coming in without any (meaningful/relevant) experience of the city. And her guidance throughout the offer process was so amazing that by the time we got to closing, that panicky "oh my gosh why am I doing this?" feeling was completely gone. With her help, we were in the, "yeah, let's do this!" mindset (even after the daunting task of signing literally thousands of pages of legalese). And beyond the fact that she is really spectacular at her job, her dedication to her clients goes beyond just making the sale. I was (sad and) alone, in a hotel room, on my birthday, in a new city, for a whole five minutes before a delightful box of cookies arrived from Ashley. I mentioned I really liked the flooring in part of the house we wanted, and a day later we had the exact flooring type & purchase location that Ashley had tracked down from the seller. We wanted to get some work done on the house and - you guessed it - we had a list of recommendations for contractors, roofers, painters, etc. from Ashley all ready to go. And I can name even more of those "above and beyond" type moments, but I think you get the picture. She's amazing.

Tori D.

Ashley is amazing! While we had done a lot of research before moving here, she was the one that suggested the neighborhood we settled on, and her help throughout the process, in general, was priceless. She even covered small post-purchase details like contractor and pest control referrals, which we desperately needed since we were relocating from out of state and had no prior knowledge of local buyers would. My parents are planning to move to Austin in the next year, and I will definitely be referring them to her!

Tori Danforth

Ashley was excellent to work with. She made the home buying experience much better. I will recommend Ashley to anyone I know.

Ashley is an absolutely dedicated agent. We have had two real estate transactions through Ashley; selling our house last year and our condo recently. Ashley provided excellent advice while selling our home and arranged for handy-men to assist with minor repairs to ensure that we had the house ready to sell. Ashley handled the sale of our rental condo this summer, and she managed everything in Austin (including rental furniture for showing) while Valerie and I were in Colorado. All of the details were well managed during the showings and throughout the sale. The condo was successfully sold, and the entire experience was painless thanks to Ashley's undying work ethic and attention to detail. We couldn't be happier with Ashley's performance and would not hesitate to call upon her again if we decide to return to Austin. I highly recommend Ashley Brinkman to anyone searching for a dedicated, reliable real estate agent in Austin. She is an awesome human being as well.

Ashley Brinkman has seriously got to be the best, most hard-working Realtor in Austin, possibly the WORLD! Our home-buying process got a little bumpy at times (due to issues out of Ashley's hands) but we always felt confident that things would work out because we had her on our side. I truly can't express how impressed we were with Ashley throughout this entire process. She was there to answer all of our questions and we believe that she is the main reason we were able to purchase our home; it wasn't even listed on the MLS when she went after it! If you're looking for a Realtor in the Austin area, go with Ashley! I can assure you that you won't regret it. She's the BEST!!

Stella Masterson

August 1 2017

I have to say working with Ashley was a great experience. Not only is she knowledgeable about what she does but she is also honest. At one point in our house hunting adventure, I asked to see a home that just showed up on the website. Ashley reached out to my husband Moe and I and explained what would happen if we went to see the house and wanted to put in an offer. She was concerned since the process can move quickly and it would require our full attention. See the thing was were getting married that week. Looking back on the situation now I see that she was absolutely right! And considering the amount of stress we were under the week of our wedding, I cannot imagine how we would have handled purchasing a home during the same period. Ashley was always quick to respond and willing to text, call, email us around the clock. She also assisted us with all aspects of the house hunting, from helping us figure out what our true non-negotiables are to deciding what part of Austin would be best for us, to what is considered to be a good mortgage rate. Our house hunting adventure would not have been successful without her.

August 1 2017

As first-time homebuyers, my husband and I were clueless about the process of buying a house and weren't sure where we should begin. We were also slightly terrified. We contacted Ashley informally, and she quickly set us up with an ease-into meeting to lay out what the process looked like, what to expect, and what to begin doing on our end. There was no obligation up front; she simply explained things, so we had a sense of if we were a good fit. Ashley is incredibly smart, honest, organized, efficient, and one of the most dedicated and hardworking people I've ever met. She is a genuine, straight-shooter and no-nonsense kind of gal while also being a wonderful people-person, which is exactly what you want and need in this kind of situation. We knew without a doubt that she would go to bat for us, and she certainly did. In fact, she went way above and beyond! Ashley essentially held our hand all the way through, calmed all of our fears, and put us at ease through every hiccup, always reassuring us and happily being available for all of our big and small questions. Ashley knows the market incredibly well, she's super informed and connected and has an amazing network of people that she can recommend helping you save tons of time and stress in the process. We trusted her implicitly, and it truly paid off. When we found our dream house, we were the first buyers to see it, and we were able to view it before it was even listed on the market. Ashley went straight into beast mode. She didn't waste a single minute. That same day we put in an offer, and she advised us on what kind of offer to make and with what, if any, requests. With her guidance and networking skills, we beat out multiple other contenders even though we didn't have the best offer (which is still hard for me to believe). We 100% know we got our house because we had Ashley in our corner. And don't worry, once you've won the offer, Ashley is still by your side all the way through the end and beyond. She has an amazing ability to make you feel like you're her only client, even though she's a very busy bee. She went to our inspection, our closing, and checked in with us on moving day and after. She's a WINNER, and you'd be a fool to not take this recommendation to heart and contact her right away! We cannot recommend her enough. Ashley is incredible, and we'll recommend her to everyone we know.

Alicia Rios

Ashley did a great job, especially since the entire process took place with us being in St. Louis at a great distance. The closing went off just as planned, and we’re looking forward to actually moving into the property.

I really enjoyed working with Ashley. She definitely exceeded my expectations. She's really nice and helpful and readily available for any questions I had. The whole process wasn't as overwhelming as I was anticipating, probably because she was so good at taking care of everything for me and making sure I understood everything. I'm very happy with the house that I bought, and I'm very grateful for everything she did to help me get it. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know looking for a place in Austin.

We are truly blessed to have had Ashley help us. Ashely exceeded our expectations in so many ways! Day and night from Monday to Sunday, Ashley would always respond to our questions quickly! She has the most positive attitude with her professional service styles to make her customers very happy! We are truly grateful to have had Ashley as our Realtor!

Ashley was a pleasure to work with and really worked to help us find the perfect first home. She brought a real sense of energy, a can-do attitude and a real personal touch to our search, even when times got tough and we lost on a few homes. Ashley was super supportive of our search and worked to help us find homes that matched our aesthetic and was always sure to dig into any questions or concerns we had. She was knowledgeable about the neighborhoods and the Austin market and was always upfront and honest with us, which is something we both really appreciated as first-time buyers. She also always made sure we felt taken care of, even if she had a conflict, she always arranged to have someone from her team or a fellow agent available to help! Ashley made it a great experience for us, even in this hectic Austin market. She was also great at acting as a guide for us throughout the process. I am a fairly detail oriented person, and Ashley and her team were always sure to answer my myriad of questions with clear and helpful responses and offer great advice on the things that I really needed to know. Her support gave me the confidence I needed to make the right decisions and navigate the complicated home buying process.

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.

Sierra Redding, Google Review

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.

Tyler C., Facebook Review

November 1 2016

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.

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.

Shannan C., Yelp Review

Ashley is the We decided to work with Ashley in purchasing our third property, and we couldn't have been happier. She knows the market, the neighborhoods, the contacts for EVERYTHING you'd ever need done to a home, and has great insight into where your home will be in the future. The main thing we loved about Ashley is we didn't feel overwhelmed or stressed throughout the process - and we were planning a wedding, traveling over the Christmas/New Year holidays, and were sick. We knew she had our backs, negotiated like a boss, and helped us find a home that we will live in for the foreseeable future. We plan on investing in other properties in Austin in the coming years and will definitely come back to Ashely. Highly recommend her!

Kelsey & Shahin

After buying my first home with Ashley in 2010, there was no question that she'd be my go-to realtor in Austin. Fast forward 8 years, I was moving out of state and needed to sell quickly. Luckily, Ashley was there to help ease the process. She connected me with the right people and set me up with everything I needed to be successful. She was super responsive and available from start to finish. Ashley knows her stuff - she is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and was patient to answer all my questions. Not only is Ashley a fantastic realtor, a bonus is that she's fun to be around. You can tell that she truly loves helping others; her generosity shines through while working with her and even afterwards, whether she's hosting awesome events for clients or sending holiday treats. I highly recommend Ashley and her team and will definitely use her again if I move back to Austin.

Shadan Kasiri

Ashley has SO much knowledge about the industry and respects the pace of ready-not-so-ready home seekers; she checks in periodically when you're grazing, and shows up when you're ready. She is frank, supportive and responsive throughout and we would not hesitate working with her again when the time comes.

Claire Hero

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.
