Ashley Lordi has been living and working in the city of Chicago for over ten years. She is a creative who enjoys exploring the special connection between people, materials, and spaces. At the start of her career, Ashley aligned herself with Top Producers. Learning how to orchestrate deals and building a strong foundation with techniques that deliver. She has sheer tenacity for negotiating, an exceptional eye for quality, and a concentrated desire to help others.
Before her real estate career, Ashley focused on non-for-profit work, helping at her family’s food bank. Where she discovered the importance of social arts, accountability and welfare. These ideas are still very much integral to her makeup. She believes housing is a basic need, directly linked to our happiness and ecological sustainability. Ashley is passionate about Green Initiatives, and how they affect the various facets of real estate. She continues to serve the non-profit with her family, while designing spaces and selling real estate. In her free time Ashley practices yoga, meditation, and enjoys travel.
Her first job outside of the food bank was for a large land development company. This provided for exposures in excavating, paving, demolition, site plans, job bidding, and more. She credits this experience as a stepping stone for investment properties and development.
Ashley has continued to build upon that foundation by immersing herself in several new construction and renovation projects, gaining further experience with design: from furniture and textiles to lighting, millwork, and masonry.
Ashley believes it is essential to identify what inspires us, not only for ourselves but for the greater good of our world. It is through these areas of focus, that she can operate at her highest capacity. While looking for a community to compliment her perspective, Ashley found a “home” with Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty.
