Helping others is one of my many passions. Growing up as the eldest daughter in a family with six children, I learned how to quickly and effectively get the job done. What job? Every job. This passion of helping others is what lured me into the Real Estate field. I'm a motivated Realtor with a world-class work ethic and a great attention to detail, and I approach every undertaking with enthusiasm, diligence, and positivity.

Originally from New York, I relocated with my family to North Carolina in 1991, and have lived in Wilmington since 1998. I graduated from The University of North Carolina at Wilmington, then went to pursue a Culinary Arts degree. After receiving this degree I owned my own catering company, and worked at many local restaurants. I also spent many years in the customer service, management, and sales fields, honing my interpersonal communication skills, marketing skills, and enjoying working one on one with my clients. Having lived in Wilmington for such a long time, I have experienced so much positive growth in the area. There is really something about Wilmington that just speaks to those who live here and have visited that makes them never want to leave. I am truly proud to call Wilmington home.
I have been lucky to carry my passion of helping others into all other aspects of my life, including being on the board of directors for local cancer fundraising organization Love is Bald. With this great organization, I help plan and organize fun and active events that raise money not only for those fighting cancer themselves, but also affected families and cancer survivors.
You can find me enjoying all that this wonderful coastal area has to offer- whether it be kayaking with my awesome husband Brian, enjoying the beach with friends, biking, listening to live music, or walking my dog Charlie. I love using the skills I learned while in culinary school cooking and discovering new wines with Brian.
Let me help you discover all that this beautiful town has to offer. My goal is for you to be 100% satisfied with my services so that you feel comfortable referring me to your family and friends for all of their real estate needs. If you have any questions about the area or my services, please feel free to call or email me anytime.
My wife Merrilee and I were referred to Allison by our realtor in California. This was our first trip to the Carolina coast and we had no idea what to expect. She spent two full days with us looking at properties in the Wilmington area and giving us a great tour of the many communities. Her knowledge of the area is amazing! We never felt rushed, looked at tons of homes and she saved the best for last. We couldn’t be happier in our beautiful new Hampstead home! We would recommend Allison to anyone who is looking for someone who is not only a true professional, but also a genuine, caring person. She has become a friend as well.
Allison isn't your typical realtor -- she truly listens & cares! I was an out of town buyer (moving from AZ to NC) with no familiarity to the area and needed to find a house with a specific list of must haves on a tight time-frame. She answered my many questions, provided me resources to make my own informed decisions, and even face-timed showing appointments when I couldn't be there in person. The entire transaction was smooth and enjoyable and I now have a home I am very happy in. Choose Allison if communication, intergifty, and professionalism are important to you!
We would highly recommend Allison to anyone for a house in Wilmington. She was professional, reliable, thorough in her research, and responsive throughout the home-buying process. We had the added complication of looking for a house from out of state and she tailored her support and approach to meet our needs.
