About John Ashton

My name is John Ashton. My wife Julie and I, along with friends and family, have been coming to Hilton Head and the surrounding area for 20 years. We decided shortly after our first visit that this would be a great place to settle once our children graduated from High School. We have three children. Our son Johnny graduated from Purdue University and is living and working in the Charleston (SC) area.

Our daughter Robin graduated from University of Toledo and is working and living in Cleveland/Akron area and our other daughter Devon recently graduated from The University of South Carolina. In addition to our personal travel to Hilton Head I have traveled extensively throughout the southeast as well as rest of the U.S.A. and Canada for business. Now with diverse life experiences including building two homes, setting up three manufacturing plants and dealing in many real estate transactions for business and personal use I joined a brokerage on Hilton Head Island and in 2016 joined Keller Williams Realty.with two offices in Okatie and on Hilton Head Island.
