55+ Downsizing

Hello, my name is Katie Ashland. My extensive background in real estate and customer service allows me to uniquely understand your needs and concerns in today’s ever-changing real estate market. I advise buyers, sellers, and down-sizers in the purchase and sale of existing and new construction homes, condos, coops, and townhomes. I use my attention to detail and vast real estate knowledge to tailor each transaction to fit your individual needs.


I understand the importance of effective and consistent communication and pride myself on making that a key ingredient in every relationship. When you work with me, you know that you are important. I believe in quality over quantity, so that your needs are met. Also, as my client, you have access to my network of preferred vendors and professionals.


I have a passion for assisting long-term homeowners to downsize and transition smoothly to their next home. I empower you by educating you on your move and guiding you to make an informed decision about whether to stay in your home or sell.


My proven process for downsizing will leave you feeling overjoyed not overwhelmed. I will assist with all aspects of coordinating your move and will use my extensive resources to personalize your move in a way that saves you money, reduces stress, and produces quality results. As a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM), I abide by our code of ethics. NASMM members are recognized for their expertise related to Senior Move Management, transition, and relocation issues affecting older adults.


I represent buyers and sellers in all areas of the Twin Cities, however, I proudly live in Lakeville. In my free time, I love to spend time together with my family and friends doing basically anything social. Living in such a wonderful community is something I never take for granted.
