UNION, NJ

09.25.2023

“LEARNING WHAT SOMEONE IS LOOKING FOR IN THEIR NEW HOME AND HELPING THEM THROUGH THE JOURNEY IS TRULY REWARDING. WELCOMING THEM HOME TO AVE AND PROVIDING AN UNMATCHED RESIDENT EXPERIENCE BRINGS ME THE GREATEST SATISFACTION.” 


As Leasing Manager at AVE Union, Ashley oversees the leasing process for both our unfurnished and furnished apartments. She provides exceptional service every step of the way—prospect tours, lease execution, move-ins, and renewals. Ashley attributes her success to teamwork as she works closely with Resident Services, Maintenance, Housekeeping, Marketing, and fellow Leasing Managers to deliver the AVE lifestyle to all residents. 

Q: What is a typical workday like for you? 
I start my day by walking the sales path to ensure the community is tour-ready! This includes inspecting our model apartment, auditing move-in ready apartments, and conducting a thorough walkthrough of our amenity spaces and common areas. I then contact all incoming leads regarding our current availability. Next, I focus on new resident arrivals by ensuring their apartment is move-in ready and securing the perfect welcome home gift. The remainder of my day is spent planning resident events and brainstorming social content.  

Q: How long have you been working in this industry? 
This October marks two years with AVE. Prior to joining the Hospitality industry, I held an Advertising Sales role in New York City.  

Q: What do you love most about being a part of the AVE team? 
I am so grateful to be a part of such a motivated and supportive organization. Each team member embodies our values system, QUEST, every day. Teamwork truly makes the dream work!  

Q: What is your favorite amenity or service at AVE Union and why?  
The resident events, I love planning the calendar of events with my fellow team members and showcasing them on our social media channels. I also enjoy attending the events as it gives me the opportunity to interact with both new and long-time residents.  

Q: What is your hometown? 
Summit, New Jersey 

Q: What is your favorite hobby? 
I enjoy watching football. Growing up, my dad and I bonded over watching games of our favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Recently, I picked up a new hobby of playing golf. Although I’m a beginner, my pink golf clubs motivate me to become a skilled player.  

Q: What is your favorite spot in the Northern New Jersey area and why?  
Downtown Summit. There’s just something special about visiting my hometown. 

Q:  What are 2 or 3 fun facts about you that we might not know?  
I’m the biggest hypochondriac you will ever meet, a dog mom to my Whoodle, Rocky, and was a ballerina from three years old through my freshman year of college.
