Testimonials from Our Clients

Francis & Marta


It was a pleasure to work with Allison. She was always willing to answer questions and propose intelligent strategies to enhance our possibilities of selling and buying. She represents intelligent, energetic professionalism. …”I think your actions on our behalf were outstanding.”

Laura A.


Thank you for everything you did for me to make the sale of my house and my move easier.  I appreciated it very much and I would strongly recommend your services.

Kathie M.


Very professional but friendly with lots of advisement after the sale on where to go for anything you need. This included lists of companies and individuals who could help in many different areas.

Lisa R.


Far from your typical cookie cutter agent, Allison quickly became keenly attuned to how my personal circumstances were impacting my move. She strategically went the extra mile to get to know me and my sensibilities, and then researched specific properties and communities she felt were most suited to my priorities and lifestyle. Allison also consistently went above and beyond to anticipate and then manage countless logistical hurdles I frankly would have not foreseen. She basically spoon-fed my entire transaction and converted an inherently stressful cross-country move into a seamless transition. Can’t say enough about her professionalism and integrity.

I couldn’t be happier with all that you have done. You knew exactly what to do to make our house look fresh and cute and utterly appealing. I am blown away…Thanks so much!!!!

We worked with Allison on purchasing and selling a property.  She is extremely knowledgeable about the Sarasota market and provided great advice on the timing of sellingproperty marketing, and coordinating all aspects of a smooth closing.  We highly recommend her services.

Allison was extremely helpful to me being in Minnesota at the time I was looking for a new home. She listened to what I wanted and found a number of places. She took photos of each and a walk-through movie of the house that I ended up purchasing. I can't say enough good things about how professional she was throughout the process.

Patrick & Claude C.


We are French and we spend around 5 months per year in Sarasota.  We purchased a condo on Siesta Key in Sarasota 5 years ago with Allison as our realtor at that time.  She did so well that first time that we spoke to her when thinking of purchasing a second condo for investment.  Again Allison was great in supporting us throughout purchase.  She smoothed every difficulty, understood what we were looking for, gave us the pros and cons of every unit we visited and solved any issues linked with a purchase made from France.  Overall, we are very happy with how the process went and what we purchased.

Thank you for the wonderful service in the purchase of [our condo on Longboat Key].  Your attention to detail and level of professionalism is unmatched.

Allison is a tenacious go-getter. She stuck with us for 2 years while we looked for a retirement home in the Sarasota area. She's an attentive listener and reads buyers very well, even those much older than her. A dedicated Realtor, she scours the market in her free time to find something she thinks will fit your exact requirements. She responds immediately, even when she's busy with another buyer. Extremely helpful in evaluating property values important in making offers. We ended up buying a home recently in Waterlefe, just North of Lakewood Ranch. It's the same community her parents have lived in for several years. Allison is an absolute delight to work with if your looking to buy property in the Sarasota area.

Allison is friendly, kind, helpful and extremely knowledgeable not only about the area but also about contractors and all aspects of Sarasota living. We have been so impressed with Allison's conscientious work ethic. There is no question that she knows the area well. As our real estate advocate, she closely monitored everything regarding our recent purchase and has been thorough and meticulous in detail as we approach the closing of our other property. Without reservation, we have given several people Allison's name. Allison is a valuable asset to Michael Saunders. We would not ever use any other Realtor because we believe she is excellent. She is truly an outstanding professional and a wonderful representative. We are so grateful for her service and merit. 

Kathy & Bill



We were so delighted to work with someone who was patient, thoughtful, and who went above and beyond the norm to help us find our Florida home. We never felt short-changed – never were made to feel anything less than the most important people Allison was dealing with at any given time. What more can I say about her cheerful demeanor, her professionalism, coupled with likeability and her willingness to help.
