Ashley Wilson is about as unique of an investor as you can find. Her generational experience in construction and renovation of spaces combined with a deep financial knowledge and background creates a perfect mix of know-how. She knows the equation and costing to turn units, manage vendors, motivate property managers, and keep deals on budget. Along with that her ability to motivate her team into action and her followthrough to see projects to their completion is unprecedented. She has been invaluable as a member of my network and team!

I have had the pleasure to have known Ashley Wilson for a little over a year. During that time I had the opportunity to work side by side with her both as a partner and her as an asset manager on a large MF project. I have found her dedication, attention to detail, communication and troubleshooting skills to be exceptional. She does what she says she will do and does it well. She relentlessly oversees the budget and keeps the project on track. She is a team player with great leadership skills, and an asset to any commercial real estate team.

I came in contact with Ashley Wilson by co-partnering in a property in Amarillo, TX. Since then I have been so impressed by her work and honesty that I do not like to miss any of our weekly calls. She is very clear and honest in presenting the situations good or bad stories. She has a good hand on the asset management. I have never seen any asset manager doing asset and construction management from far away and knowing the tiny details of the property and have a very close relationship with the team on site. Whenever I reach out to her for any advice on multifamily, I always get an honest advice. I think I am very fortunate that I know her. I look forward doing more deals and learn from her.
- Krishan Singh, Chief Executive Officer, Grow Rich Capital
Ashley is absolutely amazing. She is incredibly talented and outright smart. Her work ethic is an inspiration and her ability to deal with tough situations is way above par. She is great mentor, coach and friend. I’m delighted to have her as a business partner on a deal. I’ve seen her work up close and I have yet to see a more well rounded real estate professional. When it comes to Asset and Construction Management, there’s just only l person I know that I could bet blindly on, and that person is Ashley Wilson.

I have had the pleasure of working with Bar Down Investments on various projects; and no matter the size, I can say, "They Get It." Whether it's a Budgeted Small Cap-ex project, or Emergency Response and Building Restoration, their background in construction bolsters their ability to assist their client with permits, building codes and general construction. Also, their reasonable timelines and communication at pertinent and key points in the construction process makes them an easy recommendation for any firm that is unfamiliar with trudging through the waters of "Build Back," or those that just need some general guidance on Cap-ex projects.

We could not ask for a better partner than Bar Down Investments – trustworthy, smart and with a great work ethic. They are multi-faceted partners who added tremendous value by keeping construction projects under budget and on time, thereby substantially increasing the value of our apartment complex.
- Percy Nikora, Managing Partner, Penn Capital
Bar Down is not only a great partner to have on our team in regard to project oversite, but a necessity. The value brought to the investment is not only factored by dollars saved or avoided, the value that cannot be measured is the peace of mind knowing the work being completed is necessary and priced adequately. Having knowledge and background of the key areas pertaining to construction is exceptionally valuable to an Asset Manage, Syndicators, and Management companies who are tasked with preserving the asset and monitoring cash flow.
- Dawn Waye, CPM, President of City Gate Property Group
So many times as a third party operator I have seen owners make truly large scale mistakes from a lack of knowledge and understanding that is backing the construction aspect of their syndication. Leaving them frustrated and discouraged as they navigate blindly through renovations and often falling off track of their budgetary commitments to investors. Ashley has been a true joy to work with, and its remarkably refreshing to have someone affiliated with a syndication that truly understand the risk weighing measures that must transpire when owning and operating a multifamily community.
