Alison grew up in The Old West End; a historic neighborhood in Toledo, Ohio. Her passion for old homes and appreciation of beautiful spaces and craftsmanship started at a young age. Her father encouraged her to help with home repairs and inspired her passion for antiques and collectibles and the hunt for those treasures. Her childhood included taking weekly art classes at the Toledo Museum of Art which instilled her love of art and design. She attended The Ohio State University where she earned her degree in Graphic Design. Soon after leaving college, she became an Air Force spouse and has travelled the country for most of her adulthood. Now with her daughter a recent college graduate and son in college she has settled back permanently into her hometown of Toledo. Her experiences with frequent and numerous moves and her design abilities have inspired her career in real estate. She understands and relates to the excitement and stresses of buying, selling and renting your home. She can envision the potential of what a home can be for any buyer and advise a seller on ways to make their home appealing for those potential buyers. She genuinely enjoys getting to know her clients, learning their stories and determining the need and wants of their home sale or purchase.
During her down time she enjoys many hobbies and all things high energy! Whether it’s hunting for antique treasures, outdoor adventures, exercise, creating artwork, decorating, cooking, spending time with family…she has a zest for life and thrives on the potential that each new day brings!
