As a residential real estate agent, Allison’s ability to effectively negotiate, advocate, and achieve results has won the admiration and loyalty of clients and colleagues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area since 1990. She believes that to be successful in real estate, one must pursue a life of service, demonstrate integrity, build strong and enduring relationships, have a good work ethic, and the rest will follow. Allison specializes in single-family residences, income properties, condominiums, exchanges, and relocations. She understands the local market place and is well versed about the various communities throughout Silicon Valley and the San Mateo County Coast.

Allison has been awarded the designation of the Senior Real Estate Specialist and has demonstrated the knowledge and expertise to counsel clients age 50+ through major financial and lifestyle transitions involved in relocating, refinancing, or selling the family home.

Allison incorporates over thirty years of experience as a health care provider, educator, researcher, and real estate investor into her business model. Allison is a Real Estate Broker and has been awarded the Senior Real Estate Speciatlist (SRES) certification, which is a special designation awarded to Realtors who have trained to advocate and work with clients over the age of 55 and she has been awarded the coveted Graduate Real Estate (GRI) certification. She has resided in HMB since 1995 and has been a successful Realtor on the SF Peninsula for twenty years. In 1992 Allison joined Alhouse-King Realty where she learned the ropes with John King and Bill and Jane Alhouse. Allison obtained her Broker's license, GRI (Graduate Research Institute), and SRI certification in order to better serve the needs of senior citizens and now works with a diverse group of agents with Dolphin Real Estate (formerly RE/MAX Dolphin) in our main offices in San Mateo serving both San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.
