Ashley Severance is the Managing Broker and founder of Atlantic Properties of the Lowcountry, a residential real estate company established in 2005 with a niche in Charleston’s historic and charming properties. A native of Florida and bilingual, Ashley graduated from Furman University with a double major in Business Administration and Spanish and also played Division I tennis.
Prior to working in real estate, Ashley enjoyed a nine-year career with Eli Lilly and Company where she received numerous top national sales and marketing awards and advanced as the youngest district sales manager in the history of the company. Having lived in Madrid, Boston, New York, and spending much time in European cities, Ashley developed an appreciation of historic properties and beautiful real estate. This interest evolved from a hobby to a profession. She delights in understanding her clients’ needs and truly enjoys the hunt to find each client the perfect home.
Ashley and her husband, Matt, have four children and reside on Daniel Island. Prior to the move to Daniel Island, she and her husband bought and restored a house on Legare Street built in 1870, where they lived for ten years. She and her husband are very involved in the community. Ashley served on the Children’s Museum board for two years, the Roper St. Francis Gala Committee for ten years, the Historic Charleston Foundation and Preservation Society Tour of Homes for five years, and continues to serve on the City of Charleston Recreation Commission. She has helped with multiple committees at St. Michael’s Church and others within the Charleston community.
Like many of her real estate clients, she enjoys spending time outdoors, appreciating the beautiful Lowcountry. She especially likes running, reading, entertaining, and being with her family and friends.
