Ashley Harwood

Ashley has built a successful, 6-figure real estate business over the past 5 years. Through her own experience as an introverted Realtor, she has discovered what works and what doesn’t (hint: much of what works well for extroverts does not work the same way for introverts).

Realizing there was a need for a coaching program specifically for introverts in real estate, Ashley launched Move Over Extroverts. Her mission is to help introverts discover how to use their unique strengths to be even more successful in their businesses. She shortens the learning curve for her clients, as they can benefit from the trials, failures, and successes Ashley has experienced during her career.
