“My company transferred our headquarters to Houston and my wife and I started working with Ashley Tilton at Houston Properties Team months before the move. Ashley shared a lot about the areas that we were interested in and was very knowledgeable providing us great information on the Houston Metro Area. When it came time for serious house hunting, she was all over it, sending us homes to look at and a willingness to meet us at any time. Ashley answered all of our Texas property questions and kept us well informed during the closing process. We would highly recommend Ashley and the Houston Property Team.” - Scott Carter (Google Review)
