“We had to relocate to Houston from West Texas for my husbands work and we needed to find a home. I googled search for a realtor that had amazing reviews with a personable picture. We found Ashley Tilton, I called her up and explained our situation and chatted about the idea of building a home. The market in Texas is so popular right now. I didn't want to get stuck in a bidding war with a property I absolutely loved. She did her homework and I booked a flight and was in Houston for 48 hours. The first 4 hours of being with her I found the perfect neighborhood and a perfect lot to build our home. I never found this neighborhood on Zillow when I personally was searching before our trip. If it wasn't for Ashley we would have never even known this existed. After we signed our contract I had to fly back to West Texas. I felt secure knowing I had Ashley being my eyes and ears during the building process while we had to put our house on the market and start packing up. Our home took 9 months to build and she was there with us every step of the way.” - Danielle Wilkerson (Google Review)
