Hello, I am Marianne Allison, licensed Realtor, mom to three wonderful adult children, wife to my husband of 25 years and wearer of many hats. I love real estate and I love what I do! I have been licensed to practice real estate in California since 2005. Prior to entering the real estate business, I had a successful career serving as an administrative, accounting, and management professional in both the automotive dealership and construction contracting industries.
I began my career in real estate in mortgage lending, where I learned about lending practices, contract negotiation and helping clients with their credit needs. As my career progressed, I found that it is as a Realtor working with clients as a buyer’s or seller’s agent is where my passion lies. Using my background and experience, I love to help clients achieve success.
Contra Costa and East Alameda County area is where my business is focused, however I have lived in Northern California all my adult life and am very familiar with the Bay Area and Central Valley counties. It is not unusual for me to work with clients in surrounding areas, such a Santa Clara, San Mateo, San Francisco, Solano, Sonoma, Sacramento, and San Joaquin Counties.
Besides helping clients as a seller’s/buyer’s agent, I also have a property management practice with a system in place for clients that have investment property who would prefer a professional deal with the nuances of managing tenants and upkeep of rental property. I make it a priority to stay informed of the state and local rental laws. To round out my team, I maintain excellent vendor relationships with home repair and building contractor pros, that do quality work at a reasonable cost for my clients.
It is my sincerest hope that if you have a real estate need you give me call. Consultations are always free. So, whether you are first time buyer, selling your home, a seasoned real estate investor, or just curious about the market, please consider contacting me. I look forward to chatting with you soon.
