Since 2014, we have helped thousands of people buy, sell and transfer property in Victoria, led by our founder Kate Ashmor.
Kate has nearly twenty years of broad and diverse experience as a lawyer, including in commercial private practice, at Victorian State Government departments and agencies, and in-house within the banking and finance sector. She chaired the board of Caulfield Park Bendigo Bank for four years, is a Past Convenor of Victorian Women Lawyers, a Past President of Australian Women Lawyers, and she has previously served as an elected Councillor for the City of Glen Eira.
Since founding Ashmor Legal in 2014, Kate and her team have reviewed tens of thousands of Victorian property contracts and acted for thousands of diverse clients around the world. Kate is highly regarded for her attention to detail, her broad knowledge of Victorian real estate, local government, federal and State politics, and her genuine care for her clients: "There are no silly questions!".
Kate holds Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts (Politics) degrees from Monash University, and is a member of the Law Institute of Victoria and the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
And her coffee order is: "Almond sticky chai with honey, please!"
Her attention to detail and & level of care was fantastic. She was easy to contact (via WhatsApp or email) & would respond quickly. Despite the experience being entirely digital, we always felt well looked after by a team that actually worked in our interest.
Kate is an exceptional communicator and a phenomenal operator! Very thorough and detailed every step of the way. We can’t recommend her enough!😊
Kate was extremely responsive and concise, and most of all she was clear and upfront about everything. This counts for a lot when you're buying for you first time. Kate had my back the whole way and made me feel like I wasn't alone...highly recommend!
She carefully examined every sale contract we sent, and provided professional and prompt legal advice throughout the purchasing process. We will definitely come back to Kate for any future real estate needs, and we strongly recommend Kate.
Not only was Kate supportive from the start, she continued to provide us guidance throughout our journey. Kate is thorough, diligent, responsive and clearly had our best interest at the forefront of her mind. I highly recommend Kate and her team.
Kate was an absolute pleasure to work with. Kate is incredibly skilled and knowledgeable in what she does with a great system in place to create a simple and efficient process! I recommend Kate to anyone, particularly first home buyers.
I reached out to Kate after I saw this reddit post, and she read through one contract for me and she was amazing! I was about to do a property inspection in the afternoon, and found out the contract was messed up. Very dodgy sale.
Kate is a thorough professional and an absolute must to have on your side if you're buying a property. She helped in reviewing and finding flaws in the contract of sales and negotiating on terms with the vendor. She is very responsive and thorough in her work.
As first home buyers, we needed quite a bit of guidance and Kate was extremely good at explaining complex concepts in an easy to understand way. Kate was able to cut through the nonsense and provide clear and concise instructions for us to follow.
