Engel & Völkers Professional Athlete Advisory

As members of the exclusive Engel & Völkers Professional Athlete Advisory, Chandra & Ashley are a powerhouse team of real estate professionals with over 40 years of combined experience. With a focus on luxury real estate, athlete and entertainment relocation, and investor portfolios, this dynamic duo brings a specialized touch to every client interaction.

"What sets this team apart is not just their individual expertise but also their combined strength, commitment to discretion, and dedication to delivering exceptional results."


Ashley and Chandra understand all of the nuances and demands of this lifestyle

Professional athletes and high touch celebrities are the first to admit that their lives are anything but typical. The Dutton Ruch Group diligently works with their best interests at heart, and confidentiality in mind, as they guide their real estate transactions and support their transitions and investments. These transactions are often less traditional and require the real estate professional to take on various roles, including as a local concierge, project manager, investment guide and more. Depending on the day, Dutton Ruch Group may be managing repairs and onsite work or providing a detailed analysis to the client’s finance team.

Always involved and accesible.

No timeline too short, no detail too small.

“Professional athletes require the utmost discretion, care and attention with their real estate transactions”

- Anthony Hitt, president and CEO, Engel & Völkers Americas.


“When faced with a move, athletes and their families need a local expert who can help them get established in a new community quickly, or, who can take on the listing when they relocate. These transactions are often less traditional and our Advisors understand the nuances of working with this type of clientele, providing support well before and far beyond the transaction to make their clients’ transitions to new teams and communities as turnkey as possible.”

“Athletes often have competing priorities in their rigorous careers,” added Hitt. “The members of our Professional Athlete Advisory Group are not just real estate professionals, but also take on the role of local concierge, project manager, investment guide and more throughout the process to ensure a seamless, full service experience.”
