Julie Ashley’s career in Real Estate has spanned several decades, originally recruiting and training new realtors for future success. She developed a three month mentoring program that was widely used to assist new recruits, and eventually when the time was right, put her knowledge to work, to become a leader in the Guelph and area market, having been awarded the coveted Diamond award for top 3% in Royal LePage Canada. She attributes her success to possessing a highly principled approach and giving exceptional, unparalleled service to her clients, and believes working as part of Sothebys enables her to further provide top drawer quality service and maximum exposure for her clients.
She enjoys the challenge of overseeing the entire listing process of maximizing the value and marketability of a home, while reducing clients’ stress substantially. This is accomplished with a team who co-ordinate renovations or improvements, stage, declutter, and anything required to make the transition seamless. On occasion this has been completed while Sellers are out of country for the entire process.
Julie got an early start in Real estate, having co-owned investment properties in the eighties, and understands well the changing cycles of Real Estate, Additionally, she and her husband extensively renovated an 1865 Italianate limestone home that is now on the National Registry of Heritage Homes.
Her knowledge, combined with a graduate degree in Social Work and accreditation as a Senior Real estate Specialist, and Candidate Consultant on Aging, Julie has become the“go-to” person and thought leader in Guelph Real Estate for those retiring or making late life or emergency transitions. She has extensive experience in Condominium sales, and as a member of the CCI (Canadian Condominium Institute), Julie keeps herself up to date with the complexities of the ever-changing condominium market.
When not working, Julie utilizes her gifts as an active member of Harcourt United Church and other social service organizations, as well as Founding Circle member of Toronto HOTDOCS festival, and avid enthusiast of architecture and all things real estate.

- I was impressed with Julie Ashley’s competence, honesty and personable approach. Thus I found myself trusting her as a person and a realtor quickly after meeting her. She took an active and hands-on role in helping me prepare my home for sale, which I found very reassuring. The home sold very quickly and her advice during the offer process was clear and keen. I never felt rushed or pressured throughout the whole process, which for me was extremely important and comforting. My opinion was sought and heard. I often voluntarily deferred to Julie’s ideas, as it was clear that they made good sense—I never felt pressured. Finally, Julie was very responsive. She took time to thoroughly answer all my questions and when I called and emailed her and she responded in short order.
Overall, and given the stressful nature of these major transactions, I have to say that it was an excellent experience.Marshall Fine, Guelph
- When we decided to sell our home of 31 years we knew it wouldn't be easy. As a historical property of unusual size and construction, it was one of a kind for our neighbourhood, Our home is also a very successful B&B for over 28 years and we really wanted to see it continue as such. Julie was the first realtor we had spoken to who made a real effort to respect that. She worked to understand the business aspect of a B&B, the implications of a home based business in a residential property and prepared a multi-faceted marketing plan to appeal to wide scope of buyers. Julie made a point of being available for every showing to help prospective buyers understand the intricacies of our home and kept us informed of every development along the way. Julie's patience and professionalism in negotiations is commendable. Julie and her team are respectful of their clients, timely and forthright with information as required and encouraging when they see you need it.
We are looking forward to working with Julie and her team at Sotheby's to find our next home. Melanie & Andy McLennanMelanie & Andy McLennan, Guelph
