About the Team

Ashley Holley, REALTOR®

Providing excellent customer service is something that comes naturally to Ashley Holley. From an early age Ashley worked for her family business, a chain of Hallmark stores in the Indianapolis area. Learning the retail industry instilled in her a deep understanding of how important it is to listen and respect each and every customer. Ashley’s teaching degree assists her with simplifying the buying and selling process so her clients can fully understand, creating a carefree experience.
Before relocating to the Fort Wayne area, Ashley worked for another division of F.C. Tucker in Noblesville as a real estate office assistant. This experience allowed her to observe the behind-the-scenes aspects of a real estate transaction and allowed her to realize what it takes to become successful in the business. Ashley started her real estate career in 2009, a time that has been called the worst housing market since the Great Depression. With her knowledge and background experience, Ashley soared and was awarded “Rookie of the Year” for her accomplishments as a first year agent. From this year forward, she has built the foundation of her business from the referrals of clients completely satisfied with the level of care they received. 
Her recommendations have resulted in her individual participation in over 100 home sales within the last year. She is currently a member of the Mike Thomas Associates President’s Club, an exclusive membership granted only to a small percentage of top selling agents. 
At the end of 2012, Ashley decided a team approach would provide an even better level of customer service to her clientele. She searched for agents to form a team that could bring 
unique and different approaches to the table. With different skills, backgrounds, knowledge and abilities, each agent could take her business and client satisfaction to the next level. With Ashley leading the way, the Holley Home Team has quickly become the top selling team at Mike Thomas Associates.
