Ash Fisher» OWNER/BROKER
“Highly experienced” and “patient” are the two phrases used most frequently by others to describe Ash. Clients and the sales associates in his firm enjoy the unique benefits of working with a professional whose career has spanned decades in engineering, banking, and creating and running his own businesses before he entered real estate in 1999. The knowledge Ash brings to the business has contributed to making his Century 21 franchise one of the most successful and profitable in the Century 21 group.
His experience with the practical side of operating a business helps others achieve their goals. He uses his financial savvy to smoothly navigate the challenges frequently encountered in real estate transactions. He has spent a lifetime building relationships with people of all walks—from small business owners to multi-millionaires—and he possesses real-world business acumen rare in business leaders.
Growing up in Ft. Lauderdale, Ash juggled jobs to pay for school, cars, dating and—very important—his own window-mounted air conditioner! He delivered newspapers from his bicycle, pumped gas at the local station, broke down and reassembled truck tires, drove a laundry truck, set pins in a bowling alley and worked as a bouncer at the local drive-in theater. What better preparation could there be for eventually running real estate and property management companies?
After earning a BS in Finance from Florida Atlantic University, Ash became an engineer for Pratt & Whitney Aircraft doing performance reliability testing on rockets and jet engines. He served as rod man on a land surveying team and earned his commercial radiology license (all the better to examine the insides of aircraft). But, when he hired on as a Sales Representative for American Oil Company and was flown to Chicago for a month long training class…in January, he realized he wasn’t cut out for a career that could move him out of the sunny south. So he interviewed for and was accepted by the Comptroller of the Currency as a National Bank Examiner; his territory—South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Perfect.
Ash found he loved banking. Soon American Bancshares of Miami snagged him as EVP and Director to consolidate and manage nine subsidiary banks and 400 staff in southeast Florida. After eight years, he was recruited by one of the largest banking companies in the world—Citicorp, and participated in two of the most dramatic decades of change within the financial services industry in the US. From credit officer to bank President & CEO, Ash helped many business men and women launch and grow their businesses in Tampa Bay.
When Ash started his real estate practice, he had already lived on Davis Islands in Tampa Bay with his wife and children for 14 years. He knew he wanted to stay in the area and grow another business. When he added professional property management to Century 21 Fisher & Associates’ portfolio of full real estate services, he did it to help meet the needs of clients who wanted to expand their investment portfolios into real estate. Ash’s reputation for calmly guiding people through the unfamiliar and occasionally emotional experiences involved in selling, buying and owning real estate is valued by his clients and agents alike.
When you need the most experienced support from a patient professional, Ash is ready to deliver for you.
