Gary Ashton With The Ashton Real Estate Group

Gary Ashton acquired his real estate license in March 2001 and has had a rapid rise to become the #1 REALTOR® for RE/MAX and one of the top 1% of REALTORs® in the Nashville Tennessee area, the #1 team leader with RE/MAX Advantage in Tennessee, #1 in the USA, and #1 RE/MAX team in the world!

Born in England, Gary spent most of his time pursuing a musical career, first playing drums with the Leeds Middle Schools Orchestra, then the Yeadon Town brass band, and then moving more towards the rock and pop bands. This eventually led to playing in a local Leeds rock/pop band called Officer Dibble.

At the time Gary was working at an advertising agency and had clients who were selling cars or homes, which he worked on alongside the development of his band. As the local success of the band grew, the attention of the music business came to them. The band was signed by Chris De Burgh's management, and, as a result, the band subsequently opened for Joe Cocker, Chris De Burgh, and Tears for Fears.

His family owned two bed and breakfast hotels, and after leaving the band, Gary helped with the family business. Eventually, the hotels were sold and the family emigrated to Clearwater Beach, Florida, where they operated a motel for 10 years.

In 2001, Gary obtained his real estate license and became an agent at Crye-Leike in Hendersonville. It seemed the best of both worlds – a part-time REALTOR®, and a part-time musician. However, it soon became clear that music didn’t pay the bills, but real estate did!

Gary eventually became a buyers’ agent for Steve Shrum, one of the top agents at Crye-Leike, and one of the few agents in Hendersonville who actually had a website up and running. Gary’s background in advertising had been used in developing a website for the hotel, and so he applied this knowledge in an effort to enhance the lead generation from Steve’s website.

In 2016, Gary started RE/MAX Advantage, and by 2018, their team was recognized as the #1 RE/MAX team in both the USA and the world.
