About Allison

I’ve been helping clients buy and sell homes in the frenzied markets of San Francisco and Marin County for 18 years. I know how daunting it can be. Even the savviest buyers and sellers can get overwhelmed during the process because of the high stakes and countless details involved. That’s where I come in.

My approach is different from most agents. Instead of taking up my clients’ time talking about myself and my successes (although that info is available), I spend time listening to my clients: your needs, your concerns, your ideas, and your goals. And then I offer experienced perspective, create a strategy, and successfully help you reach your real estate goal, whether you’re buying or selling or both. I’m your advocate. I cover everything from logistics, scheduling, home prepping, marketing, and structuring a solid contract that’s in your best interest, all the way through a smooth and successful closing. I handle the minutiae so you can focus on your next chapter.

There are too many stories of homeowners who left money on the table when selling or who paid more than they should have when buying because they worked with an inexperienced agent, or an agent who lost focus and dropped the ball. I give my clients 100% of my attention, whether you’re new or one of my many repeat buyers and sellers, and whether it’s for a one-bedroom condo or a multi-million-dollar estate. I will help you sell your home for the highest price with the least hassle, buy your dream home, and make one of the wisest investments of your life. I see my job as your guide to feeling excited about your future and experiencing security, stability, and freedom.

As an active member of both the San Francisco Association of Realtors and Marin Association of Realtors, I have represented clients across many of San Francisco’s 100-plus neighborhoods and throughout Marin County. I am also a top relocation specialist helping clients relocate from other regions, states, and countries, including France, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and elsewhere. I have nearly two decades of first-hand experience of the dynamics and trends of homebuying and selling in Northern California. And in all this time, I have received 100% positive feedback from clients and have a perfect 5-star rating from Client Reviews.

My Background

Raised on the Peninsula and a resident of Pacific Heights in San Francisco for more than 20 years, I am unabashedly smitten with San Francisco and intimately familiar with our region’s art, culture, food, and sports scenes. I love that many of my clients call me an ambassador for San Francisco. I’m an active member and former board member of the South End Rowing Club — one of San Francisco’s five longest-running institutions — where I play handball, row, and swim in the San Francisco Bay. I’ve even “escaped from Alcatraz” more that 50 times without a wetsuit. I’ve also used my emergency medical technician (EMT) training to assist the Marin Search and Rescue team with missing-person searches and evidence-recovery missions.
