Allie loved growing up in Farmington, where the highlight of her family’s summer was walking down the street to the Dakota County Fair. She started dancing at the age of 3, and she developed discipline, dedication and many other valuable traits through her passion. “I was shy as a kid,” Allie says, “and dancing gave me a confidence boost. It was a way for me to express myself.” Allie embraced the routine and structure, and she learned different styles of dancing, including ballet, lyrical, kick and tap. She honed the importance of teamwork in kick dance and the importance of commitment in ballet. After years of practice, she achieved the pointe technique, in which she could support all her body weight on the tips of her fully-extended feet. “I was at the studio every night of the week, sometimes until 10 p.m.,” Allie recalls. “I wasn’t a natural, so there were no shortcuts.”
Those traits have transferred well to real estate, where her work ethic, attention to detail and refusal to take shortcuts serves her clients. She also has a gift and passion for staging homes; an underrated yet critical part of selling a home. In fact, homes that are staged well, on average, sell 73 percent faster! With an eye for fashion and style, Allie has a knack for selecting the right “look” to best present your home. She believes each home has its own story and who doesn’t love a good story?
Allie also has nine years of experience with new construction, which gives her valuable experience with redlining blueprints and designing floor plans. It doesn’t hurt that’s a part of the process she really enjoys! Allie is driven by two things: The joy of helping clients fulfill their real estate goals, and the joy of spending time with her two sons.
