Real Estate has been in my blood for many years, I can sketch plans of my family homes and also my Grandparents homes, even placing where their furniture was. I purchased my first home in 1971, and since that time have personally bought, built, renovated, designed, and sold over 25 properties. My professional Real Estate career began in December 1992 in Coffs Harbour with NSW Real Estate, a modern independent and very prominent office. To quote Roger Pryce, the Principal & owner.
In 2000 I ventured down to Port Stephens, where my daughter and her family had lived since 1993. After a short stint with another agency I made the move to PRD April 2001. 13 years later I’m still with Bruce & Deanne. Our sales teams combined successes are a tribute to them and the longevity of their sales staff a testament to that. During my time with PRD I’ve consistently ranked in the monthly top 20 sales people across Australia.
2013 calendar year the office was number 5 Nationally & I was 16th on the National top salesperson list.
For me, as a Real Estate Agent, I know that buying or selling a property is a huge event in a persons’ life, and handling that major transaction is extremely important to all concerned.
I can assure you of my COMMITMENT to all my clients to give them 110% effort at all times and see the job is done well. Clients who have experienced what it’s like to deal with Vicki Ashford will tell you it doesn’t stop once you’ve listed or when you’ve settled, the relationships formed will continue. My business is based on 85% of repeat or referred clients, something I’m very proud of.
Over the recent years I'm proud to say that I've achieved some major goals. Not just in the industry but personal goals as well. Completing the KOKODA TRACK in 2007 was a major event and something I reflect on often. It makes you really appreciate what our young boys did for us. Then came the Lares Trek in the daunting 4,500m Andes Mountains of South America, another grueling physical test. After that the magic of the Milford Track and the Coromandel walk in beautiful New Zealand. Back in Oz it was the amazing Larapinta Trek in the Northern Territory.
Adding to that, I’ve had many other wonderful trips. South Africa, UK, Europe, Micronesia, Egypt, Hawaii, Samoa, Bali, Singapore, Jordan, Turkey, Greece, Korea, Tassie, Hawaii, Fiji, Singapore, and the list goes on! Jumping out of a plane for the 2nd time certainly put a big smile on my face, as did catching & releasing that beautiful 1,000lb marlin off Cairns. I am very fortunate to live a full and just amazing life and as the old saying goes "I work to live not live to work".
“Vicki was employed by us for almost 7 years. She had fantastic people skills & in an extremely difficult market Vicki rose to the top within 12 months, a position she held in Coffs Harbour until her departure. She is an extremely well organised person and her referral based clientel produces a large volume of listings which she converts into sales in a very short period. Any future employer will be very fortunate to have Vicki on their sales team. We will certainly miss her and will find her very hard to replace. “
Vicki, I know you said an email wasn't necessary, but I just wanted to thank you again for the courteous manner in which you handled your time with us. It was a pleasure doing business with you and your understanding of what we need to do is commendable. You are an absolute credit to the Real Estate industry and I can see why you are so successful.

We listed our quaint and unique cottage in Soldiers Point with Vicki. We all knew it would be a challenge to sell as it is not like every other house. But Vicki rose to the challenge and found us not just 1 buyer but 2. In a whirlwind couple of days she had our house sold and got us the price we wanted which was a great birthday present for my husband! In the time that Vicki had our property listed we can only say good things about her. She was reliable, honest and committed to selling our house. Thank you so much Vicki.

We’re only too happy to let anyone know that on the sale of our unit at ALOHA COURT we were so happy with the constant proactive support received from Vicki Ashford. Should we decide to sell any of our other properties Vicki will be the agent for us.
