David Ashby

Residential & Commercial REALTOR®

David Ashby

There’s nowhere better than Austin!

I initially moved to Austin in 1996 and have loved this city ever since.  After getting married in 2006 and moving away, my wife and I eventually followed our hearts back to Austin to raise our family.

A previous career spanning more than a decade focused on superior customer service, multi-million dollar contract negotiations, business and project management allows me to utilize those same strengths, skills, and experience in helping my real estate clients achieve their goals. 

After personally buying and selling homes both in Houston and here in Austin, I know the stress and emotional roller coaster that can come with real estate transactions.  I consider my relationship with my clients as one based on service and teamwork.  I take a lot of pride in listening to clients and learning exactly what their needs and objectives are and am able to formulate an effective strategy to accomplish these things. My priority is you and my purpose is to help you achieve your goals all while making the overall experience a positive one.  I will work hard to help you make the right choices while understanding your options, the negotiations and various steps involved in buying or selling your home or investment property.

In my spare time, I enjoy taking advantage of all Austin has to offer - great food, live music, fun indoor and outdoor activities with my family, beautiful golf courses, and UT football!

Call me…..I’d love to help you!

David was helpful to us as we looked for a house to rent in the area, was always happy to get additional information or reach out to listing agents on our behalf! He left an overall good impression on us as a representative of JB Goodwin.

David Ashby was referred to us by a colleague who knew that we were looking to relocate our office space since our current lease was expiring. We were skeptical about hiring someone we didn’t know and were concerned about a realtor over-promising and under-delivering. As soon as we met David, we realized that we had nothing to worry about. He immediately put us at ease. Unlike a lot of realtors, he listened to what WE wanted rather than steering us in a direction that didn’t fit our needs in order to boost his commission.  What impressed us the most was his quick response time, regardless of the day of the week or the time of day. He was the consummate professional yet down to earth and easy to talk to. He was very knowledgeable and efficient while respecting our time. He took the time to gather the information necessary to find us the right location while staying within our parameters and our budget. Thanks to David and his team, we have a new place to call home that not only meets our current needs but gives us room to grow as our business expands. If you are looking for a realtor you can trust, call David Ashby.

Kim Harter, Operations Manager
"I am a residential Realtor. I have sent multiple commercial referrals to David. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I will continue to send him business because I know he will find the best outcome for everyone I send his way. I highly recommend David Ashby. "
Zac Barger
"Earlier this summer my company made the decision to purchase an investment property in Austin.  We knew the purchase of this asset would have a significant impact on our business. During this endeavor, our commercial agent David Ashby implemented a streamlined, systematic, thoughtful process that afforded us the opportunity to stay abreast of what was available, and also practical in considering our needs. Our company is based out of Fort Worth. Considering that we were unable to commute to Austin routinely to view identified properties that met our criteria, David ensured we had first-hand knowledge and advice that gave us a sincere comfort and steady confidence that we were in good hands. Once we identified a property that aligned with our objectives we gave David the go-ahead to pursue the property. He immediately moved with exceptional expertise coordinating our travel from Fort Worth, and the sellers schedule to allow us to view the property and make a timely accepted offer. We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome and are eager to purchase more properties in the vibrant city of Austin.  Our experience with David was that of professionalism, efficient communication, and timely expertise that allowed us to acquire this property that had multiple offers. Thank you very much, we would definitely recommend David to our friends, colleagues, and clients and enlist his services in the future. "
J.P., President of JPA Investments
"We've used David Ashby with JB Goodwin for two commercial real estate transactions in the past couple years and have been extremely satisfied.  We used David to represent us as a buyer in one transaction, and as a seller in another transaction.  We could not be happier with the outcome of each.  David portrays the highest levels of professionalism, is very easy to communicate with, always responds to calls and emails quickly, and brings great experience to the table, including the collaborative experience and effort from the long-established JB Goodwin agency.  I highly recommend David as your real estate broker, you will not be disappointed."
David Hart
"David Ashby was able to sell our commercial property within a few months of listing, he demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism as well as prompt and effective communication.  David and his team possess the resources to bridge the gap between buyers and sellers and get the job done."
Brad Hart
"Let me start by saying that I had the pleasure of working with David years ago and witness first hand his ethics, standards, and dedication to his clients and peers. This is exactly why I feel confident in always sending my commercial real estate referrals to David. I've been an established real estate broker for a while, but I know when to stay in my lane and commercial real estate is not my lane. I know that I can trust David to take care of anyone I send his way like they are family.  Simply put, he knows the business inside and out and he knows how to treat people. He exudes integrity and I'm always eager to work together! "
Wes Womack, Broker/Owner
"Enjoyable process with excellent service.  Closing was efficient and streamlined."
Jason Ashby
"David made the process of locating an office lease in Austin an enjoyable experience in a very growing marketplace.  He was informative, responsive, listened, negotiated on our behalf and truly looked out for our best interest.  He is all in and follows thru to the end.  I recommend David if you are looking for a realtor that is easy to work with and an overall great guy. "
Kim Iles
"I was referred to David Ashby as my Commercial Realtor and used him to find my first space as a new business. David was extremely attentive and on top of our seemingly never-ending requests. He was very easy to communicate with and worked hard to make sure we found the right space for my business. The search was longer than we originally anticipated and David was right by our side making sure we kept our spirits up by continuing to work diligently to find us a space. He has continued to be a helpful contact and person in my corner into taking possession of my space. I would recommend David and would use him in our future endeavors. "
Morgan Lies
"I love my agents at JBGoodwin Realtors. David Ashby and David Huffaker were professional, knowledgeable and quick to respond to any and all questions. They helped me sell my commercial property fast and at a price higher than I expected. We are definitely partners now and in the future. I will recommend them to friends and family. Great job fellas!"
