By Staff | Apr 22, 2009

RE/MAX of the Islands is proud to announce that Sarah Ashton was ranked number 10 of over 5,000 Florida RE/MAX Sales Associates in 2008.

Ashton joined RE/MAX of the Islands in July of 2006, and since then she has become one of the most productive real estate agents on the islands.

Ashton received her Bachelors degree in Economics from Drew University in Madison, N.J. and has her MBA from Northeastern University in Boston. Prior to becoming a Realtor, Sarah spent the majority of her career in Financial Services in New York and Boston. After many years visiting the area in pursuit of Red Sox Spring Training games and the Sanibel beaches, she and her husband, Jim Metzler, moved to the island in 2001.

“Sarah is detail oriented, extremely energetic and intelligent,” said Art Corace, broker/owner of RE/MAX of the Islands. “She is devoted to our community, her clients and the real estate business on a professional level. We are very happy for her and all of her accomplishments.”

After arriving on Sanibel, Sarah dug into the island life and is a Past President of the Sanibel & Captiva Islands chapter of the American Business Women’s Association. She is currently Chairperson of the Board of Directors for the Sanibel and Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce.

“I’ve always been ‘in Real Estate.’ I started by climbing through homes under construction in my home town in Connecticut when I was 7 years old,” said Ashton.

How’s that for a lifetime of experience?
