Ashley Wainscott is the founder and CEO of Simply Sold, a general-contracting company specializing in home remodeling. In an industry in which female business owners are scarce, Wainscott saw a need for a simpler, more reliable contracting process for homeowners and real-estate agents. She created a system that keeps the customer educated and informed during the remodeling and make-ready process. Her perseverance and motto—“Better every day”—has helped to grow Simply Sold in the Austin market. Since launching her business in April 2013, Wainscott and her team have provided services to 1,200 Austinites, from creating beautiful and memorable spaces for homeowners remodeling their own homes to helping real-estate agents looking to beautify homes for the market. Wainscott cherishes her spare time by traveling with her husband and her pup. As an Austin native, she works with numerous local charities to give back to the community.
