Kellie Ashley is a North Carolina Native and has lived in Johnson County for 27 years while raising her son, who is involved in local Real Estate.
After working behind a desk for 30 years, I was ready for hands on work. After several Flip projects with my son, real estate and renovating distressed properties became my passion. Watching a once neglected house become a home again is very rewarding. The neighborhood values increase, local workers have jobs and most important, a family finds a new home. With more than a dozen completed renovations under my belt, new construction is on the horizon.
I am no stranger to hard work. As a teenager in Fairmont NC, my summer job was working in the tobacco fields and waiting tables at South of the Border. After high school, I graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Housing & Management and Wake Tech with an Associate Degree in Industrial Engineering. I later completed a Masters of Trust & Investment Management from Campbell University. In 2016 I was awarded a NC General Contractors License.
Early in my career I worked in commercial real estate and property management. For 16 years, I worked for Wachovia Security and Merrill Lynch Wealth Management as a Senior Registered Associate. During that time, I worked with affluent clients to management their assets and investments.
During my early years as a real estate agent, with REMAX Southland Realty, I had the opportunity to learn about many aspects of real estate. By October 2017, it was time for the next hurdle and Kellie Ashley Homes became my new firm. I will continue to work with Buyers, Sellers, investors, developers, new construction and commercial raw land.
