|Who is Elaine Ashby?|
|"I really am not a cheerleader but I am very happy with the life God has given me and feel like shouting for joy. One of my many blessings is my ability to live in the beautiful area of Denver, Colorado.
I am just an "older" old fashioned Realtor that wants to give you good service!"
As quoted from Elaine Ashby
|Elaine has lived in the Denver Metropolitan area since 1962, formerly from Central Nebraska, and was associated with CENTURY 21 Professionals beginning 1986. During November of 2004 CENTURY 21 Professionals was acquired by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and she became an Assistant Manager for the West Office in Lakewood, Colorado. In 2006 she was elected to serve on the Board of Directors of the Jefferson County Association of Realtors.
Prior to real estate, Elaine and her husband were co-owners of a large furniture store in the Denver Metro Area. Many of the items sold at the store were imported from around the world and involved travel by Elaine and her husband to purchase these items.
Traveling is still a favorite hobby of Elaine's. She was able to spend 6 weeks in Europe again on a wonderful adventure visiting numerous countries. Several relatives were visited and a whole lot of site seeing was done. This year she traveled to Venezuela, South America, visiting the Rain Forest, the Angel Falls along with many other exciting adventures including the German Village of Colonia Tovar. A lot of movies were filmed as that is another of Elaine's hobbies. She creates DVD's and really enjoys photography. Another way for her to travel is in an Airstream Interstate RV which is enjoyed a lot for special get-aways.
Her previous years of experience of business ownership, time management, and sales in the Denver Metro Area has helped her to be an outstanding servant to the community, her family, and her clients. She is a widow and has 2 daughters, both married, and 4 grandchildren. Her goal is to make buying or selling a home a fun and productive experience for her clients.

Hire Elaine as a Buyer's Agent or
Hire Elaine as a Seller's Agent!
|Most people are aware they would complete a "Listing Agreement" when they list their property with a real estate agent. The listing agent is then working for the Seller. However, when a Buyer is looking and planning to purchase a property, it is recommended the Buyer complete an Exclusive Buyer Agency Listing Agreement as well! That Buyer will then be represented.
As a Buyer's agent, Elaine will help negotiate the purchase of the property representing the buyer. She can negotiate on resale homes, for sale by owner and new home construction. On resale and new home construction, she will be paid by the Listing Broker or the Builder and in the majority of the for sale by owner sales she will be paid from the proceeds of the sale by the seller.
|As an Exclusive Buyer Agent, she is obliged to help you find the best deal and lowest price. Being a Realtor, meaning she is a member of the National Association of Realtors, she must comply with the high Code of Ethics that members are held to. This membership also assures access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), a source of information on most of the houses for sale in the community. She also works with "For Sale By Owners" to locate a property that best suits your needs.
The bottom line:
You do not truly have an advocate in your corner unless you have signed a contract stating so. This applies to both selling Colorado real estate or buying Colorado real estate!
