Ashley is a native New Orleanian who moved to the Northshore in 2006 where she met her husband, Stephen. While working in corporate sales for several years, she not only exceeded her quotas, but also earned several top honors and promotions in a short period of time. Her interest in real estate began when she teamed up with her husband to develop the commercial project Prive’ in Old Mandeville. She was able to utilize her marketing expertise to successfully lease all 24 units within the first four months, followed by two more commercial developments and move on to the next deal. This was when Ashley decided she had a passion for real estate and decided to become a full time realtor.
Now specializing in residential sales in St. Tammany Parish, Ashley prides herself on making the process as seamless as possible for her clients. Her expertise has set several price per sq ft records in subdivisions such as Woodstone, Natchez Trace and the surrounding areas. In addition, her marketing background helps her creatively showcase her clients’ homes on many different marketing platforms. As the wife of a builder (Prime Design + Build Group), she has also enjoyed being a part of the service and commitment that her husband provides his clients and the lasting relationship he shares with them.
Ashley is a graduate of Mount Carmel Academy and the University of New Orleans where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in both Business and Marketing. As a member of NOMAR and the National Association of Realtors, she continues to be on the cutting edge of the real estate industry. She currently resides on the Northshore with her husband and three children, is a parishioner of Mary Queen of Peace and thoroughly enjoys all that the Northshore community has to offer.
" Karen is the consummate professional. Knowledgeable, attentive, and personable. She is trustworthy and we highly value her expertise, market insights and judgement."
“THE BEST realtor I have had the pleasure of working with. She did extensive research prior to showing us many houses. She paid extra special attention to what we were looking for and didn't waste our time showing us properties that didn't meet our qualifications. She also made recommendations based on her many years of experience that were not in her best interest of making a quick commission. I highly recommend Darnell!”
"Thank you so much for seeing this go through and helping us make it happen. We could not have done it without you. If anyone needs a fantastic agent Ashley Hesni Ploue is amazing. Explained everything to me, extremely patient with me, and gave me so much support plus her super fantastic negotiating skills."
