Alison is a people person – she loves houses and would say interior design is her most passionate interest, but it’s her place in the community which stirs her soul. She relates beautifully to others, listens to the needs of families with whom she’s working, and ends up counting many of them as friends. She also has many repeat clients who love her honest, calm and relaxed manner, as well as her perseverance when necessary and the fact that she’s simply always available.
Her goal in her work is to provide a service way beyond what clients expect, making a potentially stressful experience an enjoyable one with minimal disruption and an exciting end result. She has a deep-rooted desire to get it right for people, and therefore never loses her enthusiasm or willingness to work hard.
Alison is an amazing lady. Born in the UK, Alison married there and together they literally sailed their way to New Zealand. Having worked in London, New York, Hong Kong and Sydney, mainly in the film industry, she then decided on a change in career around ’96 and hasn’t looked back. Her love of life and genuine approach allowed her to quickly find her feet in the Auckland real estate market.
Alison lives with her photographer husband and the youngest of her four children. Her older three have all studied various strands of design and are making their way in the creative world. They’ve lived in Auckland for 20 years, in Remuera, Glendowie, and now Mission Bay, and proudly call New Zealand home.
