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.
Allison Donovan was exceptional from start to finish, and the exact right match for us. We were living on the Oregon coast when we began our home search. Allison was readily available, professional, attentive, and flexible. When we found a listing we wanted to see, she would rearrange her schedule to FaceTime us to show us the property. We had a long 6 month journey together full of multiple offers and new construction delays, which ultimately led us to our exact perfect home. Allison remained fiercely loyal to us throughout our home buying experience, and was extremely competent at every juncture. We give Allison our absolute highest endorsement and were lucky to have had her as our realtor.
Your home buying road was a little more windy than some, but we got there and your house is amazing! :) And I'm the lucky one, I've absolutely loved getting to know you both! It's been such a pleasure. Enjoy your beautiful home, and thank you so much for the great review!
It's been almost 8 months since we closed on our home, and we still find ourselves talking about the exceptional service that we received with Allison. Her attention to EVERY detail was evident throughout the entire process, from the first time that we sat down and made a plan to the day that we closed. She was incredibly thorough, and made the entire process easy for these first time home-buyers. Her attention to detail made us feel comfortable with the huge commitment we were making. Each day that we walk into our downtown cottage, we can't help but think of how Allison helped to make this possible. We cannot recommend her enough!
Hi Brent! Thanks so much for this wonderful recommendation. Wow! I can't believe it's been 8 months already. I'm so glad you guys are happy in your home. I really enjoyed working with you both!
Allison was a dream to work with. She met my every need right away. She always made me feel like I was her number one priority. She is honest and thoughtful and very good at what she does. I have met my realtor for life!
Hello Jessica, thank you so much for the wonderful review! I absolutely loved getting to know you and your family. Enjoy your gorgeous new home!
