    I am pleased and impressed with the professionalism, honesty, trustworthy, and good working property manager and the "I will take care of it." and "I am on top of it" attitude. I can go on and on with all the tasks that Ashford has put their dedication and commitment to test. They surely passed and have gone beyond it all.

    Well, it's quite early in our "relationship" but so far so good! Kim Fearon has been very professional and reassuring! I live in New Jersey and my rental property is in Arizona. Kim's attitude of "don't worry; we've got this" has set me at ease! Thank you Kim and Chrys!

    Kim is extremely knowledgeable and answered all my questions. Ashford has terrific operating systems in place. I also talked with Chrys, the broker, and found her experienced, personable, flexible and ethical. I look forward to working with them and their staff on several client referrals.

    All my dealings with Chrys Francis have been professional and done well. On the other hand I believe her employee Kim is stretched a little thin in covering all the basis. I say this even though I can verify that I have seen emails from Kim late at night. ie. an indicator that she is stretched thin

    My experience was positive-quick responses to questions-solutions oriented company and people-I would recommend using Ashford Management services and connecting with Chrys Francis.
