Alison grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania until her family moved to Michigan for her high school years. She then earned her BFA in Drama at Carnegie Mellon University. She moved to New York City to seek fame and fortune, and instead met David Gunderman and Andrew Raskopf…which was very good fortune indeed.
Alison followed her passions into various professional ventures including acting in New York City, singing in a big band in Austin, Texas, and writing a screenplay. She fused her creativity and business savvy on the development side in the world of advertising, both at J. Walter Thompson, New York, and BBDO West, in San Francisco. Ali joined the “dot com bubble” in 1999 and worked on the sales team at The Industry Standard. Most recently, Ali owned her own business – a children’s clothing store in Berkeley.
Alison has always had a fascination for real estate. She joins the team as a Buyer’s Concierge – bringing fresh energy and focused attention to the specific needs of each buyer. Ali loves the Bay Area, and lives in Albany with her husband and three children.
