Susie Ashcom  ~  Bob Ashcom

Susie's parents had her on a pony at the age of 4, jumping at 7, and foxhunting with the Farmington Hunt in Charlottesville, VA at age 9. She attended Sweet Briar College and graduated from the University of Missouri. She and her husband, Bob, were married in 1964 and have two married children, Susan & Rob. Susan & husband Doug have three children:  Wilson, Annabel & Angus (below left). Rob and wife Angela have two daughters, Isabella & Laurel.

Susie owned a real estate office in Charlottesville where she specialized in horse farms and estates. She earned her G.R.I. designation from the Realtor's Institute at the University of Virginia in 1975. In 1983, when Bob's career change took them to Tryon, N.C., she joined Coldwell Banker and quickly became one of the top farm & land agents in the area. That led to a Broker-in-Charge position with a newly forming RE/MAX in Tryon in 1993. After a year the RE/MAX office was #1 in Dollar Volume of listings sold and contracts written in their MLS. During the Tryon years, Bob Ashcomshe whipped-in to her MFH/huntsman/husband with the Tryon Hounds.

  A return to teaching took Bob to Lord Fairfax Community College and Susie to RE/MAX Regency in Warrenton where she had reached the TOP FIVE designation for achievement in sales over a 5 county region of northern Virginia, and earned the prestigious Platinum Award from RE/MAX International each year and in 2004 reached the RE/MAX Hall of Fame level of performance. She is a member of the Greater Piedmont Area Association of Realtors, Virginia Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors & Howard Britton's "StarPower" Club.

To this point in her career she has been instrumental in moving more than 650 families. Sellers and Buyers continue to send her referral business as Maple Springs Farmtestimony to their continued comfort with her professionalism. Most of these past customers own horses.

In the fall of 2007 she teamed up with an outstandingly successful "boutique" real estate firm in Middleburg, VA called Thomas & Talbot Real Estate. They are staunch advocates of land easements where the owners donate their farm's development rights to the Virginia Outdoors Foundation. The owners receive substantial Tax Credits for their gift & and large areas are formed with thousands of acres owned by people who welcome the local Fox Hunt and are actively riding with it.

Like Susie, foxhunting keeps them in balance for the demands of their lives.

The majority of Thomas & Talbot Real Estate listings are horse farms and most have historical or substantial houses on them. Please visit their web site @
