During her time with CastleRock she redeveloped the full digital platform for the company resulting in an increase of online traffic by 60% while simultaneously saving over 50% in online marketing expenses.

After moving back to the Austin area, Ashley joined Legacy as a Marketing Coordinator in March of 2016 to provide marketing support for Legacy DCS as well as Legacy’s strategic partner Legacy International Resort Properties. As a Marketing Coordinator Ashley excelled in the planning, design, and execution of all marketing functions including digital outreach, community events, print collateral and business development strategy. Ashley’s proven success in strategic planning and execution led to her promotion to Marketing Manager in March of 2017. As the head of the growing Marketing Department for Legacy DCS and Legacy International, Ashley is responsible for enforcing strict brand standards across digital and store front platforms and oversees all marketing operations for Legacy’s custom home Build On Your Lot program as well as the resort community offering found throughout the Texas Hill Country and Texas Coast. Working alongside an incredible team of talented professionals, Ashley’s impressive work ethic and passion for real estate make her a valuable asset to the Legacy team.
