Ashley Bermel

Ashley Bermel, REALTOR®

The Marketer

Since becoming an agent in 2006, Ashley has helped more than 200 families buy or sell in the area. She specializes in selling condos, single family homes, and new construction in both Iowa City and Cedar Rapids.

At the end of the day, Ashley’s ultimate goal is to help people remove stress throughout the  buying and selling processes. It’s what fuels her desire to go the extra mile for each and every one of her clients. It’s this dedication to going above and beyond that has earned her accolades such as the Corridor Business Journal’s prestigious 40 Under 40 Award and being recognized in the top 10% of agents at a state level.

Ashley is also an expert when it comes to marketing your home—hence her nickname, “The Marketer.” Coming up with creative ways to connect with others has always come naturally to her, and over the years she’s honed that skill. As someone who loves to learn about people’s stories, it has been a lifelong passion of hers to discover what draws attention and creates buzz. Whether it’s hosting a fun event or crafting an inspiring message, she aims to discover the most effective ways to make the biggest impact in the market.

When she’s not hard at work for her clients, you can find Ashley playing with her daughters, Wynnie and Evie, and spending time outdoors with her husband, Jesse (who has the green thumb of the family!). She is also active in the community, planning gatherings and fundraisers for the Cedar Rapids Mom’s Blog, North Liberty Porchfest, North Liberty Community Fund, and the Eastern Iowa United Way.

What Clients Say About Ashley Bermel

“I can’t recommend Ashley and her team enough. She helped my family sell our parent's home after their passing, which is hard enough, but she kept the documents transparent and the process simple. This was super important as there are 7 of us; she made communication about the property easy and we already had so much going on. From staging to recommending paint colors to working with our estate attorney and everything in between, Ashley was amazing. Thank you Ashley!”

— Heather B.

“Ashley went above and beyond for me! Not only is she knowledgeable and professional, but she truly cares about her clients! She has helped me navigate a very complex situation with lots of moving parts. She is the best!”

— Katie M.

“We loved working with Ashley! We cannot recommend her enough! Right from the start, Ashely felt more like a friend than a realtor. She is an extremely warm and friendly person that did not treat us like just another number. Ashley took the time to understand our needs and wants for our dream home. She was very patient with us and extremely flexible when meeting to tour houses. She always took the time to answer our 10 million questions and never made us feel like we were bothering her. We loved that she was always honest when answering our questions. Aside from her wonderful personality, Ashley is extremely knowledgeable about the ICR corridor market. Her years of experience shines through when answering our questions and gracefully guiding us through a turbulent housing market (2020/2021). She really went above and beyond to make us feel confident and comfortable when shopping for our first home. 20 out of 10, would recommend it! ”

— Emily V.

“She’s so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable! Where to even begin? We were selling our home for the first time and Ashley walked us through every single step of it and answered our questions along the way. She always made our questions feel welcome and we truly built a strong relationship. She was excellent at the marketing of our home and made sure that the home was in tip-top condition to help it sell quickly. Ashley put in the work to close the deal and make it worthwhile for both the seller and the buyer. I would always recommend Ashley as a realtor. She has been helpful and consoling from the moment we decided to sell our home, up through and beyond closing.”

— Gina M.

“My husband and I always thought if we found THE house we would jump on it. But then we did....not only in the middle of a global pandemic, but in the middle of one of the craziest housing markets in history. Ashley was immediately ready for us and helped us navigate the uncertainty of the market and the sheer speed by which we had to act. We were thrilled, yet terrified when we found out we had gotten the house. Ashley calmed our nerves, answered our 1,000 questions, then helped us get the house we were in "sale-ready". I don't think her attention to detail can be matched. In less than a week we had our house on the market and in less than 72 hours after that had over 30 showings. It was MADNESS and and yet Ashley was there reassuring us it was "normal" for the times, fielding all of our questions, and ultimately helping us navigate the sale of our home. Ashley was literally there from start to finish and I can honestly say made it all possible. She was patient, kind, courteous, professional, but most of all a calming presence in what was an exciting, yet terrifying time. Had she not been those things we would have been scared off, probably from the start. We are so grateful to her and Anne and this entire experience.”

— Ashley C.
