NORTH PALM BEACH — A demure, tiny yet sexy real estate agent working for a high-profile company owned by the family of conservative golf legend Jack Nicklaus would rather not share details of her background.
But it’s yet another Gossip Extra exclusive: Teacher-turned-realtor Ashley Lowe, 29, once was one of Playboy‘s hottest models — one whose status as Cyber Girl of The Week in 2008 made into an Internet phenom.
Now, Lowe works for North Palm Beach’s Golden Bear Realty, a Nicklaus family company.
To this day, however, more than 400,000 websites have used her nudie pictures as Lowe, the mother of a 9-year-old daughter, toils in the tough-as-nails luxury real estate business.
There’s even a video of Lowe stripping fully nude on the steps of what appears to be a Palm Beach mansion!
And on modelmayhem.com, a website where models market themselves to photographers, Lowe wrote: “I’m a model, I live in Palm Beach, Florida. I’m willing to travel for work outside of the Palm Beach/Miami area if expenses are paid. I will do most types of work fashion, glamour, swimsuit, lingerie, fitness, etc. but because I model for Playboy, I do not do full nudes for anyone else.”
According to several online profiles of Lowe, including one on the Wikipedia-like Boobpedia, Lowe is listed as “32D enhanced.”
Lowe isn’t returning calls for comment or emails, and Mike Nicklaus, owner of the North Palm Beach-based Golden Bear Realty and Jack’s youngest son, won’t comment on whether he knew of Lowe’s other career when he hired her.
How no-nonsense family values golfer Jack greeted the news is unclear.
Here is what Golden Bear’s website says about Ashley: “Ashley Lowe is an optimistic real estate agent who has an innate ability to connect with people of all walks of life. Through effective listening, a pleasant disposition, and superior communication skills, Ashley easily connects with buyers to find the perfect home at the correct price point. Likewise, sellers are impressed with her ability to negotiate on their behalf and secure a financially-pleasing real estate transaction.
In her spare time, Ashley enjoys yoga, travel, reading, and walking on the beach. She volunteers with a host of organizations including Big Dog Ranch Rescue and Dream Ride Special Olympics. Previously from New York, Ashley now lives in Palm Beach Gardens with her daughter, nine dogs, and four birds.”
There’s something else that’s not on Golden Bears’ literature: Blonde Lowe’s smoking hot with or without lingerie on thousands of photos on the web.
“It’s something she did years ago,” said a friend of Lowe’s who asked not to be named. “Ashley is a beautiful woman who modeled. The Golden Bear people are fully aware of her background.”
Incidentally, Lowe is accounted for in the realm of romance: The address listed on her real estate license is also that of North Palm Beach multi-millionaire food distributor Mike Bozzuto.
