Agent Remarks/Bio:

Born and raised in Waco, I love this wonderful city and thoroughly enjoy sharing all the positive growth we are seeing in this community! I am a sixth generation Wacoan and will use this history and knowledge to efficiently and effectively market your property to quickly close the sale. This history and knowledge is also essential in matching the correct property to your needs and wants. I am a Texas A&M Graduate (Class of '87), worked in the child welfare field for 14 years and am now enjoying my 14th year representing clients with their real estate needs. I am married to a remarkable man who will soon retire from the USAF having served 22 years and 6 deployments. I am the mother of two fantastic children ~ son, Cade, who is a Baylor graduate in Studio Art, lives in Fort Worth and is a full-time artist and daughter, Campbell, who recently graduated from the University of Texas and is working in Austin until attending grad school for her masters in social work. My family is number one but a truly close second are my clients. I find so much joy in matching my clients with their "dream home" and being a small part of the lasting memories they will have in their home!


Contact Ashley:

We were selling my wife’s family home after her mother passed away. Ashley handled the sale wonderfully. Selling a home from 2000 miles away meant we didn’t get to meet Ashley in person but she kept us informed and handled everything professionally. We’re very impressed.

Wow! My wife and I can't say enough great things about Ashley. She was very thorough during a walk-thru of our house and gave us the top things we needed to focus on to get the place sold. She was patient and reassuring during the whole process. However, the most important thing is she WAS SPOT ON when reading the Waco market. Her expertise in understanding the market and its trends where almost psychic! When the time came to manage buyer visits and offers, she was top notch as a negotiator. We would highly recommend Ashley Weist to any and all sellers and buyers in the Waco area. Ashley is the best!!!

~ Robert Darin Brock

We were selling our mother's condo, and Ashley treated us at though we had a million dollar property! She suggested renovations that would get us the biggest bang for our buck. She staged the property, including artwork. Then, she hired a professional photographer, all to show our property at its best. Having done the renos she suggested, we had quick multiple offers. The quintessential professional, she walked us through negotiations in plain English. Both buyer and seller were thrilled with the deal. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

~ Judy & Keith

Ashley is incredibly knowledgeable with Waco real estate. She is insightful and her patience knows no bounds in dealing with a couple from Maryland who purchased a townhouse in the Baylor Bubble, sight unseen! Ashley accommodated our every need and not a single question went unanswered. She was easy to communicate with and we are so thankful that she allowed us to Facetime each and every walk through plus 3 way calls galore. We used a mortgage lender, a home owners insurance agent, an electrician and a locksmith and did so all on Ashley's expert recommendations. We were not disappointed. We will definitely work with Ashley again!

~ Kimberlie Fraser

I can't say enough about Ashley! I was randomly matched with her. I knew next to nothing about Waco and where I wanted my home to be. She was patient and devoted to me and my quest for months. I did not spend a lot of money yet she treated me as if I was just as valuable as someone buying a million dollar home. She is absolutely fantastic and I am grateful for her top notch service and skills. Love this lady!

We were very satisfied with Ashley. We would gladly endorse her to anyone looking for an agent in our area. She made herself available on weekends and after hours which was very impressive. We had a tough and long drawn out negotiations to purchase the home that we did. She even reduced her fee to make the sale happen!

~ Dennis and Jenni

Ashley is wonderful!! She is extremely knowledgeable about the local market and very easy to work with. She kept our needs in mind throughout the entire home buying process. She also did a great job negotiating the best price possible for us. We have recommended her to several of our friends, both buying and selling homes and she has surpassed all expectations.

Extremely personable and professional. Very flexible and easy to work with and very patient, too.

We worked with Ashley a few years ago when we were looking for a very particular kind of house that could handle our growing family including an in-law. Ashley worked tirelessly on our behalf as we went from house to house with builder after builder to determine remodeling costs and feasibility. Had we not stumble onto a city lot up for auction we would likely have found a home eventually through Ashley's efforts. We cannot emphasize enough how knowledgeable, persevering, and patient she is with clients. Ashley will not disappoint nor let you down.

Ashley is incredible at what she does. She is very knowledgeable and really takes the time to help you find that perfect home. She does her research and goes out of her way to help you find exactly what you are looking for. She is completely invested in you, from start to finish and beyond that.

~ Laurinda Thorp

Ashley has been Great on two transactions and I'll definitely be using her services on any future ones! She's very knowledgeable, responsive, and knows what she's doing! Highly recommended!

I would highly recommend Ashley as a realtor. I have worked with her both as a buyer and seller. She does a great job of actually listening to the client. She is very attentive and maintains good contact throughout the buying and selling process. She comes across as very well-informed and professional yet with a personal touch. She has handled all of our transactions with ease and I don't have any complaints. Again, I would, and have, highly recommended her to anyone buying or selling a home in Waco.

~ Will Harkey

Ashley Weist was simply a delight to work with and matched my long list of desires for a home to the "T" in the home she found for me. We made an offer only 4 days after viewing the awesome "tree-house" home I had so wanted for many years. Was not even looking to buy but when your life-long dream stares you in the face......what are you to do. Ashley has a real talent in the area of Real Estate and is so very easy to work with. Place yourself in her capable hands and worry no more.

Ashley was wonderful to work with! We were buying in a time of rapidly-moving houses, and really appreciated the way Ashley helped us to see things quickly and kept us updated on new listings. Ashley communicated really regularly on the status of offers, inspection, etc. As first-time homebuyers, we had many unknowns and anxieties about the buying process, and it was so helpful to have someone whose knowledge and experience we could trust.

Ashley was very helpful as someone new to the area. She was very kind and understand in of having to tote around kids on the house hunt. She was patient and listened to what we needed wanted. I highly recommend her especially for people not familiar with the area. We hope to us her when our next relocation inevitably happens to sell our house!

We loved working with Ashley! She really got to know us and what we needed and found us the perfect fit!

Things could not have gone better! Ashley was very professional, very motivated and very kind. We were leaving a home of 11 years, and she was respectful of that while at the same time leading us to make decisions that would help sell the house quickly. It did! Thank you, Ashley.

~ Chuck Treadwell

Ashley was great. She was very patient with us as we saw many houses before finding the one we wanted. She was always professional and met our needs. We pulled her outside her main comfort zone going to Temple but she didn't miss a beat. We would highly recommend her and will use her again should the need arise.

~ Twilla Skelton

Ashley is THE BEST. We have worked with her on 3 purchases and I recommend her to absolutely everyone I know. She knows the Waco market inside and out and is such a pleasure to work with.

~ Elizabeth Corey

Ashley was wonderful and I could not be more satisfied with her performance. I appreciate her assistance so very much!!!

Buying an investment property was a scary, yet exciting decision and thank goodness Ashley made the process a much calmer experience! Her knowledge of the market and quick actions made for a profitable final outcome for me. I am definitely using her expertise again!

Ashley Weist is the epitome of professionalism. She has assisted me with numerous house purchases and has consistently given more attention and energy to my house hunts than I ever expected. The housing market has been difficult in the Waco area for the past couple years and Ashley has amazed me with her knowledge of new market offerings and her ability to get her customers in to see them immediately…the key to getting a house in the Waco area. As a go-to realtor, Ashley Burgess Weist does not disappoint!

Ashley is lovely to work with! She is concerned about her clients--whether they are selling a home or buying one--and works to make the process as stress-free as possible.

~ stacey hibbs

Great realtor! I highly recommend her and would use her again for sure.

I was an out of state buyer. Ashley kept me fully informed on every detail of the buying of my home. What a delightful and knowledgeable real estate agent. She tackled every little glitch along the way. If you are looking for the "best", Ashley is the one!
So grateful for this fine lady!

~ Jacqueline Schwitters

Ashley is the perfect professional: knows her job but also friendly and positive. We have either bought or sold three homes with Ashley and will always recommend her to our friends. She is patient, communicative, knowledgeable, and receptive to her buyer's needs. She was always available when we needed to meet and thoroughly negotiated in our interest. We appreciate her.

~ Anne Merchant

I've worked with Ashley on more than one occasion and she is wonderful! Her knowledge, experience, and genuine concern for her clients shows through in all she does. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Ashley has been helping me find a house for the past several years now. She is professional, friendly and very patience with my picky tastes in a home. :-)
