Testimonials:

"We recently sold our home with Allyson as our agent. Having lived in the area for many years, we were familiar (and friends with) many agents, but we chose Allyson for her professionalism, positive attitude, and knowledge of the local market. She was incredibly helpful in preparing us and the  house for sale and arranging everything--comps, regular updates on the market, a well-written listing, photographer, as well as pep talks whenever necessary. We were out of town for much of the time, so Allyson would check on the house often and was always available when we needed her. Her energy and enthusiasm for her work made the entire process a positive experience and we would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in southeastern Connecticut."

"Allyson was cheerful and very helpful. We saw 24 houses in 2 days on my first house hunting trip from out of state, which is what I needed. She knows all the roads and is well connected with the community. She found a house with everything I wanted and I was picky. She made relocation a smoother  transition by meeting with inspectors...

"Allyson was cheerful and very helpful. We saw 24 houses in 2 days on my first house hunting trip from out of state, which is what I needed. She knows all the roads and is well connected with the community. She found a house with everything I wanted and I was picky. She made relocation a smoother  transition by meeting with inspectors at the house for me while I was still out of state. She recommended various vendors when I asked for suggestions and they have all proven to be reliable. She even brought a snow shovel my first weekend in the new house because a big storm was coming and I didn't have my stuff yet. Allyson will go above and beyond for her clients and is very quick to respond to any communications. Not only did she show me houses, but she truly introduced me to the area showing me key locations and taking me to some of my now favorite local shops. On my marathon house hunting weekend she brought snacks which was a lifesaver on such a concentrated time. She has the customer in mind."

"I had a great experience working with Allyson selling my house. She knew I wanted to sell fast and that’s exactly what we did! She came in and knew precisely what I needed to do to prepare the house before we put it on the market. Once the house was prepared to her standards and put on the  market, it showed extremely well! Allyson worked very hard to find me a buyer. She did so quickly and with little effort on my part. Once offers came in, I trusted her advice during negotiations and it really paid off!"

**********

"Allyson's knowledge of the local market and trends is incredible. After seeing numerous houses over the course of a few months we put in an offer on the first house she showed us, a short sale. She was there to help guide us every step of the way. From always being available to answer a question  from a nervous first-time home buyer to offering advice about inspections and the closing process she was engaged. Allyson took an extremely stressful short sale and made it manageable. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of an experienced and personable agent."
