Her primary focus has been corporate law, including negotiating hundreds of contracts over the years.  She received a B.A. in English Literature from University of Notre Dame and a J.D. from Boston University College of Law. Three years ago, Allison decided to take her legal and corporate experience to the real estate arena and joined forces with her partner, Kelly Basheer Garrett.

" When I was stationed at Walter Reed, I decided to purchase in Washington D.C. instead of renting. I chose Allison and Kelly based on a recommendation, and I am so glad I did! They could not have done a better job. I had a few specific requests. I wanted a place that would be a great rental for later down the road if I needed to move, I needed a dog friendly place, and wanted something in a stable neighborhood. Allison and Kelly met every one of my needs! They worked around my odd schedule, seeing me in the evening and early morning as I needed. They were so knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods, and after living here almost 2 years, I am SO glad they understood what I was looking for. The few places they showed me were very to my taste, and I'm quite pleased with my choice. This was my first property purchase, and they did so well to hold my hand through the whole process, teaching me so much about real estate. Finding funding was easy, negotiating with the sellers was great, and closing on the property was so smooth. If I were to buy property here in D.C. again, I wouldnt hesitate to work with Kelly and Allison. I've recommended them to every friend who has expressed interest in buying property, and I'd recommend them to you too. Very knowledgable about the neighborhoods, understanding of different situations and helpful in any questions I had. I found these two to be helpful, and so energetic and fun to work with. Every place we saw was full of great conversation and laughter, a very great experience every time I saw them!"
