This growing list of people are who she celebrates with at her annual home-based thank-you party at Christmas time. She’s been voted, for the last two years running, as #1 Rate My Agent in Katikati and #25 for 2021 for the whole of New Zealand – an accolade that’s decided by verified vendors and purchasers in the community, not the industry.

Alison hails originally from the UK and moved to New Zealand with her partner Paul 15 years ago. A former sales consultant, payroll administrator and veterinarian nurse, Alison grew up on a rural farmlet and has come full circle living now on her 2-hectare lifestyle block on the outskirts of town, where as an equestrian she rides her horse and potters about with the dog in her rare spare time.
