Ashley Wilson might have found her way into real estate without Michael Sandman's help, but the Raleigh real estate attorney not only pointed the way for the 23-year-old summer office temp, he handed Wilson $400 and told her to get herself a real estate license.  Ashley was destined for success in every career she chose. Everything she accomplished she earned through smarts, determination, continuous self improvement, honest dealings and warm personality. In her first job at Raleigh's Athens Woods new-home community where only 18 houses had been sold during the previous two years Wilson sold 16 houses in four months. Then, during the next four years at Heritage, she sold around 270 new homes with a sales volume of about $92.6 million. So in 2008, it wasn't surprising that the 27-year-old Realtor was selected out of 400 applicants nationally to be in 30 Under 30, a group of the 30 Realtors under age 30 in the Nation whose achievements were outstanding. Ashley has an empowering story and shares how she went from real estate rookie to real estate rockstar!
