Ashley Montalvo Makes Own Luck in Move to Ohio to Join Burgan Real Estate

Canfield, OH (October 20, 2020) – Have you ever played the game when you were a kid where you would spin a globe and wherever your finger stopped it, that’s where you would live? We all would hope for a place where we would find happiness, opportunity and a location we would be able to call, “home.” For Ashley Montalvo and her husband, they were looking for a new opportunity to raise their family and start a new life together. When the globe stopped, Youngstown was their destination. She and her family excitedly moved to Northeast Ohio and we are excited she did, as we welcome her as the newest member of our family of agents at Burgan Real Estate.

Montalvo was born and raised on the East Coast in Rhode Island. The smallest state in the country could not contain the huge dreams and opportunities that awaited her. She was an influential team member with a telecommunications company as a quality assurance specialist. It was there she realized her ability to be part of a solution for people was something she enjoyed. When the company she was loyal to was acquired, she took it has an opportunity to dedicated the focus of helping people grow and be better with her presence by dedicating her time to being a compassionate mother to her two daughters, four stepchildren and her husband of 8 years. Over that time, she moved to Puerto Rico, Florida, and back to Rhode Island before choosing to move to Youngstown. It was that choice that led her to Burgan Real Estate.

When she was looking for a home in the Youngstown area, she encountered a real estate agent with another brokerage who told her that she would be a great Realtor®. Ashley was excited about the idea but wanted to join a company that not only shared the same passion of being a part of an experience, from start to finish, that makes someone else better but also a place that valued mentorship with access to marketing resources. The agent not only sold her a house but sold her on not joining her agency but the Burgan Bunch instead.

“Ashley is living a life that is a perfect example of what makes our area so special,” said Patrick Burgan, co-owner and broker at Burgan Real Estate. “She could’ve chosen anywhere but she chose Youngstown to raise her family and her career. Her character and talents are the perfect fit to our Burgan Bunch, and we are excited to have her in our family.”

Ashley is fully committed to building success in real estate as she did with her previous career. However, when she’s not focused on finding better homes for people, she can be found cooking with her daughters in her spare time and playing with her two pit bulls, Lilo and Stitch. If you have trouble finding her in public, she is not hard to spot as she continues to support her Boston sports teams at every opportunity. Her new career in real estate will be something she knows will be demanding and challenging, but, with her family by her side, she looks forward to being a positive addition to the community and company she now calls, “Home.”

“I have always done well in dealing with people and the public. When I moved to Youngstown, I wanted to be with a company that had a culture that was excited to be where they were, that took pride in helping people find a better home and was dedicated to making their employees successful in their careers and personal lives,” said Montalvo. “After talking to Patrick (Burgan) I knew the opportunity with Burgan Real Estate was exactly what I was looking for in a career and a company. I have found a new home for my family and a career in Youngstown, and I can’t wait to share my story to help others find the same as a Realtor® with Burgan Real Estate.”

Welcome to Youngstown and Burgan Real Estate, Ashley. The globe may have stopped here for you to make your home, but it is just the beginning of an amazing career together!
