She works frequently with out-of-state buyers seeking vacation homes or investment properties on Scenic Highway 30A. Allison prides herself on responsiveness to inquiries and the ability to negotiate as a single agent seeking and accomplishing the best terms for her buyers. She has a strong background and skill set for listing luxury properties in the Destin, Miramar Beach and 30A areas. Her negotiating skills are evident in her ability to obtain list-to-sale-price nearly 100% of the time. Her background in interior design and staging helps present her listings with a sophisticated and highly desirable level of marketability.
In 2020, Allison's sales volume was $35 million over nearly 70 transactions; through the first five months of 2021, her sales volume has already surpassed her performance in 2020. She is the recipient of numerous awards throughout her career: The 2017 and 2020 "Entrepreneur of the Year" awards from the Women's Council of Realtors; "Shortest Days on Market" and "Highest Average List-To-Sales Price" awards from her brokerage in 2019; and "The Extraordinary Award," given to agents with more than $15 million in annual sales volume in 2020.
