Bar Down

Sources opportunistic multifamily investments, while supporting the industry and community

Mobilizes monthly charitable campaigns through owned apartment communities

Ashley Wilkson is Co-Owner and Co-Founder of Bar Down Investments, a company founded by former professional Division 1 athletes who identify opportunistic multifamily investments across the United States. A former field-hockey player, Wilson sources investments, while using her time to also support the industry and her community.

She’s a frequent speaker for her alma mater Colgate University’s “Women in Leadership” conference, where she provides opportunities for employment to attendees who have a desire to work in real estate. She also spearheads fundraisers and contributions for Colgate and serves as a speaker and educator at Penn State, where she received her master’s degree.

She is a member of multiple apartment associations throughout the United States and is host of the Bigger Pockets Podcast. A prolific writer, her byline has been in many industry publications, and she is a regular speaker at industry conferences.

Through Bar Down, Wilson mobilizes monthly charitable campaigns with help from owned apartment communities. With this, she can give back in large numbers and create a giving culture in each community. She is active in animal adoption events, and with the PTSD Foundation of America, using her unit volume to reach a larger audience for a more impactful dollar raise and awareness.

These are just a few of the reasons we chose Ashley Wilson as one of Connect CRE’s National 2022 Women in Real Estate Award winners. Connect CRE’s Women in Real Estate Awards honor the achievements and inspirational stories of women who have reached respected positions of leadership and play key mentorship roles for others.
