Despite operating in a Saskatoon market that has been down for years, Ashley Turner’s Century 21 team was recently named the company’s twelfth highest-producing franchise in Canada. The slow pace of the market contrasts heavily with the rapid increase in Turner’s business – she and her father recently doubled the size of their team and will soon become the morning real estate experts for Saskatoon’s local Global TV station.
As a young woman who went into business with her father when she was only 24, Turner felt a strong desire to prove herself. That drive has shown no sign of diminishing.
“Don’t ever be intimidated as a young person, or as a young female especially,” she says. “Stand your ground. Set boundaries. Don’t take the blame for the market or other people’s mistakes when you have given it your all.”
