Angela’s love for Colorado began at the age of 10 on her first ski trip. At a very young age, she was mesmerized by the mountain energy and the beauty of this state. She made a commitment early in life to be in Colorado. After a pit stop in Kansas City after college, she landed in Denver for many years and then made her way to Steamboat in 2006.
She has her degree in marketing and advertising from the University of Oklahoma and has been in in sales, marketing and management since 1988. Additionally, she has been involved in the start-up of a few companies including a local non-profit organization and loves the entrepreneurial and community spirit that is pervasive in Steamboat Springs. She loves helping her clients navigate the ever-changing real estate market and is experienced in handling a multitude of transactions. Her knowledge base is broad due to her background and dedication to stay on top of the Steamboat Springs real estate market. Her commitment to her clients is to be honest, truthful and persistent in her representation of their needs.
She served 5 years as the Chairperson of Yampa Valley Sustainability Council and was instrumental in the startup and growth of the organization in 2008. Her time on the board allowed her to be involved in many community-wide discussions with stakeholders, government, businesses and individuals. This involvement has enhanced her knowledge of the many aspects of what makes a mountain community thrive and what it takes to come together on important issues. She also served on the Technical Advisory Committee for the green building program, spearheaded the greening of the MLS and was Steamboat’s first EcoBroker. She has written many articles in local magazines and newspapers. She also serves on the board for the Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors and the Pines at Ore House homeowner’s association. She loves her dog Hazie (which you will see often), skiing, biking, hiking, traveling, cooking, art and being a part of positive change for the community.

|Angela represented us in a sale of our townhome in Stagecoach in 2014. The property sold at close to asking price within a couple of days and everyone thought good news and on to closure. Unfortunately that was not the way of things! The inspection revealed a significant hidden problem! That was when we saw Angela at her committed best. We had already moved back to Florida so our only eyes and ears were Angela back in Colorado. She worked directly with the HOA to determine responsibility for repairs; got a contractor to do some of the work and still kept the buyers informed and committed to the purchase. Eventually all was settled and the sale was completed. Even then she surprised us by, on her own initiative, mailing to us a pair of paintings that we had mistakenly left behind in the house. In short if you want a realtor who will not only do the basics well but who will also be your true partner in the whole sale then you could not ask for better than Angela.|

|“Angela is like no other realtor that we’ve worked with in the past. She listened to our wants and needs and interjected her extensive Steamboat community knowledge, which resulted in us purchasing the perfect property. When we are ready to buy another home in Steamboat, we will only use Angela. Period.”|
|Traci Lindsten | Steamboat Springs, CO|
|“Put into the unusual situation of buying a property and then having to sell it almost immediately, I turned to Angela for help. She handled the request with great aplomb! The job transfer precipitating the nightmare scenario was easily turned into a dream as Angela successfully sold my property and met a crazy deadline for me to get to my new job on time and without issues. I would highly recommend her for buying, selling or handling any real estate transaction. She has a great work ethic and high integrity.”|

|“Angela Ashby is a grade-A+ EcoBroker that goes the extra mile for clients. Our recent purchase was a complicated one, and time after time she proved her tenacity and focus to get the job done and done right. We always felt our best interests were her number one priority.”|
|“Trustworthy, dedicated, honest, and knowledgeable are just a few of the many attributes Angela has a realtor. When it came time to sell my condo in Steamboat, I knew I could trust Angela to sell quickly and keep our best interest in mind. I was blown away with her quick response, professionalism, and market knowledge to help us move forward. Angela was extremely helpful and honest through the sale. I had a very positive selling experience, and would recommend Angela to anyone.”|
|"Angela’s dedication to getting the job done while keeping my best interest in mind were what allowed me to sell my townhome for asking price and find and purchase the home I wanted in 4 months. She provided the highest degree of customer service and professionalism with her attention to detail, accessibility and knowledge of the real estate market. Her in depth understanding of the buying/selling transactional process/paperwork saved me both money and time."|
|Intelligent, professional, committed... just a few words to describe Angela Ashby's approach. Being out of country buyers, it was a challenge to purchase our mountain home...a challenge made easy by Angela. Her 24/7 availability, relationship building skills, and patience in dealing with international buyers, exemplifies her commitment to client satisfaction. Even post closure, Angela goes above and beyond, providing ongoing service and ensuring a smooth transition. We were incredibly fortunate to have had Angela working with us, always having our best interests at heart.|

|"We worked with Angela for almost a year looking for the right condominium to purchase in Steamboat. After meeting in person while there on vacation in the summer of 2008, we corresponded regularly by email and telephone for the next 11 months looking at alternatives that Angela kept sending us. She grasped early on what we were looking for and was very patient with our inquisitive nature as we explored the pros and cons of the options being considered. Being out of state residents and working full time complicated the process for us but Angela was always there when we needed answers. When we visited a second time in May 2009, Angela took us to see a number of condo candidates, we made a decision and struck a deal which she helped negotiate with the developer. We can honestly say Angela went above and beyond to assist us, so we recommend her highly."|
