Ash-Dee Stifter

Marketing + Creative Director

A total design nerd and lifelong Wisconsin gal, Ash-Dee hangs her red, knit cap in the Willy Street neighborhood. She lives with her fiancé Paul, sassy Westie Ella and languid feline Stella. When she’s not following a creative brainstorm, she loves all thing outdoors, new restaurants and local art.

 I love everything Madison; I can’t imagine a better fit than helping other people find their home here as well.


  • 10 years as an Art Director, Designer and Photographer
  • School of the Art Institute of Chicago, BS Visual Communication + Photography
  • Owner of Hello.designs, design + letterpress paper shop

  • What she loves about her home: I’m not a homeowner yet. Some day! In the meantime, we have a very open, sunny apartment across from Madison’s Central Park; my most favorite neighborhood in Madison. We’re working on blending our styles with pops of color, refurbished furniture, art, lots of plants and a beautiful display room of vintage bikes!

Local Favorites

  • Walking, hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking and biking everywhere; especially taking the Cap City trail out of town and enjoying the scenery
  • Listening to music and drinking a beer on the Terrace
  • Saturday morning bike rides around Lake Monona and stopping at the Farmers Market after.
  • Tuesday date night at Grampa’s Pizza, coffee at JPH and a fresh croissant from Batch Bakehouse, Pizza Brutta’s caprese sandwich, Underground Butcher’s salted chocolate chip cookie and Julep’s courtyard … can you tell I’m a bit of a foodie.
  • Anything badger sports, go Bucky!
