Alison was born and raised in Virginia, spent 10 years living in England, and currently calls Fremont her home. Expect a smile, a sunny disposition and "can do" attitude when you meet her. She ran her own accountancy and bookkeeping business while in the UK, has exceptional organizational skills and a detailed orientated nature. She also has a bachelor's degree in Applied Psychology & Computing and is thus an attentive listener and an effective communicator. Her interests are varied as she is a re-enactor at living history, Scottish Games and Renaissance Festival events, a board-game enthusiast and tournament participant in Scrabble and Settlers of Catan, an avid reader and collector of books, an adventuresome home cook, as well as being an explorer, camper and lover of travel. Her interest in real estate began when she purchased and remodeled her first home and when she spent some time working at a shelter for the homeless it provided her insight into how important finding the right home is to everyone. Alison believes in treating everyone she meets with respect and honesty and is very excited to be able to help others realize their home ownership goals.
