Julie Ash, realtor at Sweet Ash Homes, is the local expert for senior real estate in the Broomfield, CO area. As a licensed real estate agent and certified as a Senior Real Estate Specialist, Julie has been helping seniors buy and sell their homes since 2007.

A Commitment to Senior Home Real Estate

With a real passion for protecting and helping seniors, Julie Ash, SRES®, makes the home buying and selling process for seniors as stress free as possible. Whether it be finding a new home, selling their current home, or recommending a care facility, Julie is certified and experienced to do it all.

Building relationships and harboring compassion is the norm for Julie. As an SRES®, she is aware to the financial and emotional challenges senior clients face when selling and buying homes. Julie has special knowledge of reverse mortgages and the importance of universal design to the uses of pensions, 401k accounts, and IRAs in real estate transactions.

Julie has been in the senior care service industry for nearly a decade. She seeks to separate herself from others in the real estate industry with her commitment and compassion for helping and protecting seniors. Julie goes above and beyond the regular duties of a real estate agent, which is why we chose her to be a Sunlight Support Aging in America Contributor.

Real Estate for Real People

To learn more about Julie and her passion for senior care, we sat down with her to hear about her story.

Sunlight Support: How did you get started in the real estate industry?

Julie: I was working as a caregiver at the time and had always wanted to pursue a career in real estate, so I started working toward my license. Once I got my license, I started selling and buying homes right away. Unfortunately, I felt unfulfilled and missed the relationships I had as a caregiver.

I didn’t want to leave my real estate business, but I wanted to be able to work with seniors. I did some research and learned about the Seniors Real Estate Specialist Certification and found my solution. I am a real estate agent, but I am also a resource guide for anything dealing in senior care. Today, I’ve got the best job in the world.

Sunlight Support: What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Julie: You feel valued, like you contributed. I love learning from seniors. They are so full of knowledge, compassion and respect. It’s so rewarding that they trust me to help them make life-altering decision.

Sunlight Support: What is something that set you apart from other SRES®?

Julie: I still work as a CNA, so if I’m not working with a senior client at my real estate business, I still get to interact with them as a caregiver. I have a passion for helping seniors and making sure their transition is as easy as it can be. I never think of a client as commission; rather, I always think about how I can help and care for them.

If a client finds out they can no longer live at home, I am ready to share any resources I can to get them to the best facility or care service available. If staying at home and making modifications is their best option, I have a list of contractors I’d use in my own home. I don’t have to make a sale to be successful. If my client is satisfied with a service I recommend, then I’ve done my job.
