The winners were chosen from nearly 500 nominations from all sectors of the commercial real estate industry, ranging from brokerage to development to real estate law and finance.
Ashley is active in the commercial real estate community and is passionate about engaging her fellow younger generation of leaders. She is a member of several local CRE organizations and holds leadership positions with the Urban Land Institute and UC Berkeley’s Real Estate Alumni Association. Ashley is part of the next generation of land use and real estate attorneys guiding high-profile, complex developments in California. Her land use practice focuses on local administrative permitting, and she has successfully obtained land use approvals for large-scale projects, including mixed-use and multifamily residential developments, corporate R&D and office campuses, and industrial facilities. She also advises institutional investors, lenders, developers, landowners, and lessees and lessors with regard to existing land use restrictions and agreements, as well as strategies and requirements for the re-entitlement of property.
