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.
Whether helping you find the home of your dreams or helping you sell your current home, I will offer you professional guidance, loyalty, honesty, and confidentiality.

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.
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.
Allison did a fantastic job in the whole process of selling old my property and finding my new one! She is knowledgeable and hardworking. If I needed an answer to a question, she was quick to get it for me. If you need an amazing and professional agent, I highly recommend Allison Donovan!!
I used Allison to purchase my first home and then to sell it 15 months later (life happens!). She was wonderful in all aspects. As a buyer, she always answer all of my questions and as quickly as possible, showed me homes as quickly as she could with accommodating my schedule, and worked diligently on my behalf to get me the best deal on my home purchase. When I reached out to her about selling, I didn't think I would be able to do so after only owning a short time. She informed me about the changes in the market and showed me some comps in the area and how I could actually make my money back and make a profit! She worked quickly and efficiently to get my home sold by coming in and letting me know how to make my home look it's best. I had an offer within 3 days of it coming on the market! She's wonderful!!
