Fun Fact: I’m a trained opera singer, nowadays I prefer jazz or blues. I love all music, from show tunes to heavy metal and everything in-between (yes, even country haha).

My life before real estate

Before real estate, you could find me singing my 15-year-old heart out behind the counter at Lick’s (in the Beach) while serving up the best veggie burgers in town! Real estate is in my blood, so after that short stint in fast food, I started answering phones at my dad’s real estate office and then went onto the back-office, deal processing, and administration. I eventually landed on my favorite job of all – realtor!

Why I love being a realtor

What I love most about real estate is the relationships; when you work with me, you become part of my (extended) family, and I’ll be in your corner, advocating for you every step of the way. Oh – and I promise to make you laugh because there’s no better medicine!

My life outside of real estate

I’m a nature lover and new experience collector; you can find me hiking in just about any part of the world or daily with my pup in High Park. When I’m not forest bathing or snuggling with an animal, you can find my wife and I taking in all that Toronto offers: comedy shows, musical theatre, Raptors games, or trying whatever new vegan restaurant has just opened.

Ashton helped my partner and I purchase our first home, and it absolutely would not have happened without her. She knew answers to questions we didn't know we had, was seemingly available around the clock, and is one of the loveliest people you'll meet. From the moment we met her, we knew we didn't want to work with anyone else. Ashton knows every inch of this city, and better yet, she'll take the time to get to know you so that she could find your piece of it.

In a city flooded with real estate agents, Ashton stood out from the rest. In previous experiences, I found most agents to be complaisant, setting up viewings only after I approached them with properties of interest. Ashton’s proactive approach was a breath of fresh air. After touring the first house, Ashton got a clear idea of what I was looking for. We submitted an offer of $40K above asking, only to lose out to a bid $60k higher than mine. After a moment of frustration, Ashton pulled out a listing, similar to the one I had just missed, but in a better location and a cheaper price. She looked at me and said, “I think this house is perfect for you.” The next day, we toured the house; it was everything I wanted, and more. After a successful bid, I got the house for $120K less than the one I had lost out on earlier in the week. Thanks to Ashton, I have my dream home. Most importantly, I wouldn’t have found it without her."

Ashton was a fantastic real estate agent who helped us to sell two condos and buy a house all within 6 months. She was very knowledgeable about the condo and housing market, and was able to provide good advice about what price to list our condos and what price to offer on our house. She arranged the photography and staging of our two condos, and the photographs were beautiful! She helped us out right until the day our house closed, and even offered to stop by our new house to confirm that it was clean and all the appliances worked on the day before closing! I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell property!

Ashton was a total dream to work with. It was my first time selling and I was overwhelmed. Ashton was on top of everything, from staging to marketing. She and her team were friendly, skilled, knowledgeable and efficient. She worked hard and got me a great sale. Highly recommend hiring Ashton and her team - ethical, savvy, and they take the stress out of it.

My husband and I worked with Ashton for the sale of our condo in the Junction. Every part of the selling process was made easy with this team. From the staging, to the marketing, to the sale of our condo, everything was seamless. Ashton took care of everything and made sure our condo was ready to be sold. Our condo was listed and sold within one week, with multiple offers from buyers. We are so pleased with our decision to work with Ashton. We would recommend them 100% for any selling or buying needs.

Thanks to Ashton we were able to upgrade our home in a very intimidating Toronto real estate market. True professional, she clearly has a very in-depth, on-the-ground understanding of all the subtleties of the current market. She was very responsive and instrumental in helping to make the home we were selling look absolutely AMAZING - allowing us to fetch top dollar, and was an excellent negotiator for both the purchase and sale. We are very glad we called her.

Look no further! You found the best real estate agent in Toronto! I was referred to Ashton by a friend and I couldn’t be happier to have worked with her to purchase my condo in Toronto. In this Toronto real estate market, it is important to work with an agent who is knowledgeable, professional and on the ball. I found Ashton to be very knowledgeable in the Toronto real estate market and very professional in all her dealings. She is always willing to go that extra mile for her clients. I would absolutely recommend Ashton to anyone who is looking to buy or sell.

Since 2012 my wife and I have relied on the expertise of Ashton Childs to navigate our real estate transactions in Ontario. We were newcomers to Canada and Ashton guided us through the sale of two properties, a freehold townhouse and a condo, and the purchase of three properties over the past 11 years. Ashton’s knowledge of the market trends, ability to successfully negotiate bidding processes for properties, and her understanding of what potential buyers look for in a listing, were stellar resources for us in all of our real estate transactions. Not only is her technical knowledge superior to other agents we have encountered in Ontario and the U.S., she has numerous personal qualities that warrant mentioning in our review of her services. Ashton learns about each client’s needs and goals for their individual living situation. She then draws on her extensive knowledge of neighbourhoods in Toronto to help clients find the best fit for their budget and lifestyle. Being new to Ontario, and not knowing anyone in the city, her ability to tailor our search for a home was invaluable. Ashton is an excellent communicator and follows through on every request, question, and issue that her clients might encounter. In summary, Ashton’s professionalism, personable interactions and integrity will provide every client with the best possible buying or selling experience.

We had the pleasure of working with Ashton recently, and couldn’t be happier with the experience. Not only was she incredibly friendly and approachable, but she was also always punctual and organized, making the entire process smooth and stress-free. Plus, her sense of humour added a refreshing touch to our interactions. We highly recommend Ashton to anyone in need of a top-notch real estate professional!
