Ashley Brandon
Suite A, Midlothian
Office Number 804-601-6600

Ashley Brandon first earned her property and casualty license in May of 2014. Wanting to continue her education, she then went on to earn her life, health, and annuities license in September of 2017.
When Ashley was 18, she needed an auto policy for her first “new to her” car, a 1994 Nissan Sentra with over 250,000 miles on it. She called her father’s insurance agent to get insurance of her own. When she did, without explanation she was handed, and issued a policy. Never being advised of what coverage she had, how to use it, or that it could be tailored to meet her needs and budget. When she went into the insurance industry, she vowed that she would never write a policy without the client being fully educated on their purchase, and how to best keep it protected.

After working for a captive agency, she decided to come work with Client First Insurance Group, knowing as a broker, that she would have more options that better fit her clients needs. She is well versed in personal lines, such as home, auto, specialty auto, recreational auto, boats, and personal liability umbrella policies. She continues her education on commercial business and life insurance.

Born and raised in Richmond, in 2017 Ashley married her long-time college friend James, and bought a home in South Chesterfield. She enjoys gardening, making jewelry, and recreating recipes to be vegetarian friendly in a way that, hopefully, no one notices.

She currently holds the position of Licensed Service Manager and hopes to help families protect what is most precious to them, and then continue to protect their children and generations thereafter.
