Testimonials

We have worked with Allison twice over the last 2 years. The first time she helped us find a new home, and the second was when she sold the same house for us. Allison is a very easy person to work with and never gave up on us when we were searching for a house. She was always looking out for our best interest. We have moved 10 times over the last 30 years. We have met and worked with many (to many) realtors. Allison is someone we would use again if we could!

- Purchased and Sold a Mamaroneck Home, July 2018

Allison was a fantastic broker for us. She helped us sell our home and buy a new home. She listened and was very attentive to our likes and dislikes. She never tried to push or influence our decision making. When it came time to contract execution, closing permits, submitting bids, countering offers, and pushing all items required for closing she was on-top of it 110%. She did not miss a beat and pushed the whole process along in an expeditious manner. Once we moved in, she gave us a good list of AAA home improvement contractors which has been very helpful. Thank you for all your hard work, Allison!!!

 - Purchased a Harrison home, June 2018

We had a very short timeline to find and close on a house. Allison took out all the time needed to see various houses, revisit our shortlist, and then successfully negotiate and close on our dream home. As first time home buyers we had lots of questions that she would entertain at any time of the day (or night). Allison also helped us get familiar with the area and continues to help us settle in. She has great local insight and market knowledge. She is honest, warm, and wonderful to work with. We would definitely recommend her (and hope to work with her again).

- Purchased Edgemont Home July, 2018

Working with Allison was a pleasure, start to finish. We moved to Scarsdale from across the country, and she educated us on towns in Westchester, showing us homes in several towns. She very quickly keyed in on our taste and preferences and showed us homes that were real options for us. She has an excellent sense of space and design and recommended changes to homes to make them more what we were looking for - when we could not envision renovations. She also has a keen sense of the market and what homes will ultimately trade for. When we finally found a house we liked, Allison did an excellent job negotiating for us, and managed everything straight through to closing for us because we were not in town. I cannot recommend working with Allison highly enough. I wish I could do it all over again!

Purchased a Scarsdale home, August 2018

- November 8, 2018

This was the second time I had the opportunity to work with Allison to help me to find a house for our family. Last year she helped me to find a rental and earlier this year, when we decided to buy, I looked for her guidance again. The search for our new home with her was another fantastic experience. She knows the area in extreme detail, and she was incredibly sensible understanding our needs - even making the process pleasant and fun. She was also very efficient during the negotiation process. Her knowledge about the financing process and her availability and willingness to help with other things, such as decorating and legal advice, was also very valuable. If I ever need anything related to real state in the future, I will call her again!

Her local knowledge was amazing. Her process expertise was of extremely high quality. Her perception about our needs and desires was incredible. The most responsive professional I have ever seen. Her negotiation skills at the time of the closing were also impressive. She got us an excellent deal.

I had the pleasure of working with Allison to buy our new home and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone. What impressed me the most is how she stays on top of absolutely everything during the process and follows up after the sale is done. A wonderful agent!
