From the time we met Alison, she was the consummate professional. Her knowledge of the market and ability to translate what we were looking for into what inventory was available was uncanny. Regardless of what questions we had, Alison was very responsive and got us the information we needed. She was our advocate throughout the process and alleviated the anxiety of purchasing a new home, especially given we were out-of-state buyers. She also has a terrific network so any ancillary needs we had, from home inspectors to veterinarians, were met. We highly recommend Alison to anyone looking to purchase a home in the upstate area.

- Diane and Tod Iseminger


Deciding to relocate to Simpsonville to be closer to our children and grandchildren was a major step for us. Alison Germain began working with us before we even put our house on the market in Myrtle Beach. She spent lots of time showing us what was available and getting a sense of exactly what we were looking for. One of her many strengths was keeping in touch with us and responding to all of our calls, texts, and emails immediately which was of utmost importance to us. Once we found the house we wanted, she made it happen for us. She handled many of the details we were unable to attend to since we lived so far away. She made what could have been a stressful situation much easier for us. Her personable, positive attitude made our house hunting fun. Thanks to Alison for a job well done!

- Martha and Buzzy Anderson


Alison is the best!  We told her what we were looking for in a horse farm and she took us right to the perfect home.  We could not have picked a better realtor!

- Bill and Terry Boger


Alison was attentive and very proactive.  She was efficient and responsive to all our requests.  She always found it in her busy schedule to be readily available to us no matter the time of day or night.   I am so happy because it was Alison who listened to our wants and needs in a home thus finding the home just perfect for us.  She is truly the best!
