Alison is professional, personable, efficient, and very knowledgeable in the real estate business and the market(s) she represents. Six years ago Alison worked diligently with my husband and I to find the perfect home for us in Charlotte. On the first day we were not able to find what we wanted in a home, but Alison said she would look for others. She called me the next day to let me know she had several more and would we be interested in looking at them. Well we did, and the last one she showed us was exactly what we were looking for. She spent two full days with us to ensure we found a home we wanted to live. This speaks to her professionalism and desire to make sure her clients are completely satisfied. That is why when we decided to place our home on the market in September 2021, we immediately contacted Alison. Well, in one week she found a buyer for our home, kept us informed of buyer interest/questions, and handled all negotiations on our behalf (we had already moved out of state), kept us appraised of all closing details and process. Alison was available for consultation or to answer any questions prior to or during the closing process. Needless to say, we were again pleased with her overall concern for us and went above and beyond to make herself available when necessary. Therefore, I would highly recommend Alison Smith to anyone who is selling or buying a home. Her knowledge, experience, and overall attention to detail and client concern will be apparent to anyone selling or looking for a new home.

Alison was a great help to us in finding the home we purchased in the Huntersville area. We moved from Vermont and were going to be staying with family while we looked for a new home. Based on initial contacts with Alison, she had a number of homes for us to view by the time we arrived in North Carolina. She took all the time we needed to find our home. Once we found the home we wanted, Alison was very helpful in guiding us through the closing process. Alison also made sure we had all the necessary contact information so by the time we closed on our home all necessary services were in place. Alison really knows her business. We highly recommend Alison to anyone looking for a realtor.
I utilized Alison for a purchase of a Townhouse/condo in the Lake Norman area. Her knowledge of the market was very helpful in finding the right place for me. Alison was able to tailor the search of properties for my needs without wasting a lot of time on properties that did not fit my criteria. Eventually, I found a short sale where Alison was extremely helpful in working with the seller agent and providing me feedback on the process every step of the way. If you are in the market for Home or townhouse our selling a property, I would highly recommend Alison Smith.
Alison was so helpful from day one of discussing putting our house up for sale. She gave us great advice and made our house look great and sell quickly. She was always very responsive to us and answered every question we had. She made us feel comfortable with every step and I trusted her completely. She was always so nice and I truly enjoyed working with her through the entire process. I would recommend her to anyone I know.
Alison Smith is exceptional! With Alison's assistance, we purchased a lot on which to build our dream home AND sold our existing home in 2 days! In addition, Alison helped to find us a rental house as a "temporary home" until completion of our construction. Alison went beyond the call of duty - she researched county regulations and building codes, provided references for all services, and even coordinated information with our builder. Alison gave practical advice to prepare our home and family for our house listing. She is friendly, knowledgeable, organized and responsive. We received 5 competitive offers on our home after 2 days on the market! Hands down, we think that Alison is one of the best in the business!
Alison Smith is a true professional. You are in excellent hands with her by your side. As a Mortgage Banker, I work with many Realtor Partners and can tell you that Alison has her clients best interest in mind. She is a skillful negotiator and well versed in the real estate market. Whether buying or selling, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend Alison!
Alison Smith is one of the most professional realtors I have ever known and a pleasure to work with. Over the course of the last 3 years, I utilized her services for both purchasing and selling a home and would not hesitate recommending her to the most discriminating clients. Throughout the entire buying and selling process, Alison was positive, caring, hands on, compassionate and motivated. Her work-ethic is extraordinary. She is always just a phone call away and answered emails and phone calls promptly. I am a medical provider and work varing hours often I had to reach her at uncoventional times, I would send her an email in the late hours and receive an immediate reply. I always felt as though I was her only client even though I knew she had a very busy schedule. I can honestly say that Alison is one of the few professional people in any profession who actually exceeded my high expectations. I am honored to call Alison friend and realtor.
Alison helped us find our current home several years ago. We were undecided as to what area/state we wanted to live in, which meant us looking at houses all over SC and NC. Alison was more than patient and always helpful. She was a great agent to work with. We highly recommend her!!!!
Alison has been very helpful in the sale of our house.
She is a true professional, dedicated and very knowledgeable.
I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a great real estate agent.
Alison and her team sold our home. She was especially helpful during the negotiation of the contract, inspections and closing. We had many things which could have killed the deal. But they helped us put things in perspective and work out something both buyer and seller could work with. Thanks Alison.
When we began looking for a home in Charlotte, we were still relatively new to the area and were not sure where to begin. We were introduced to Alison through our mortgage lender and after talking with her, my wife and I were immediately very pleased. After listening to what we had in mind, Alison immediately went to work and compiled several properties that she felt were in line with our budget and spent the next day showing them to us. By the end of that day we had found one that we thought we liked. However, after thinking it over, we decided to look at it one more time. On that second visit we decided we should begin looking again. Alison handled this request with understanding and not only had another list for us the next day, she blocked out the next Saturday to show us those properties located in Huntersville, Mooresville, and Mecklenburg. That more than showed us she really cared enough to help us find the right choice this time; and we did. It was the last one at the end of the day. Through it all Alison never seemed frustrated, always gave us answers to all our questions at each stop, and showed nothing but professionalism and concern that we would be happy with our choice. We were then, and still are.
Therefore, I can highly recommend Alison to anyone in the market for a new home. Her knowledge of the business, the area, her personable and professional attitude, and overall concern for customer satisfaction will be apparent throughout the process.
My husband and I contacted our broker when we saw a townhouse that had just come on the market and time was of the essence. He was out of town and he put us in immediate contact with Alison and she was great. Just having met us, Alison stepped in, did the negotiating and finalized our purchase.
An excellent job by Alison and we highly recommend her for any part of a real estate deal.
Alison’s knowledge and professionalism were invaluable in helping us find and purchase our home on Lake Norman. She listened carefully to our wishes and promptly came up with a list of homes that could fit our needs. Alison was always patient and very responsive. She was a great agent to work with and we recommend her without reservation.
Alison was wonderful. She totally looked out for our interests. I would highly recommend her to any of our friends and colleagues who are buying a home.
Alison did a fantastic job and was very helpful during the whole buying process!

My wife and I selected Ivester Jackson after terminating a previous agent. We think that this was one of the best decisions we made. Our agents were Alison Smith and Lori Jackson. They were both outstanding. They addressed our concerns with the Coronavirus issues and ensured us that our property would sell once the market returned to normal. We had numerous showings and sold the property. We are both very happy and would not hesitate to recommend the Ivester Jackson team again in a heartbeat.
Alison Smith is the most professional, supportive, knowledgeable, and patient real estate agent we have ever had the pleasure of knowing and working with. She has helped us navigate a rather difficult transaction. We are so grateful for her expertise, time and experience. We will absolutely recommend Alison to potential future customers. Many thanks to Alison Smith and Ivester Jackson.

I am very impressed with Alison Smith’s marketing plan to demonstrate the usage of each room to the potential buyers. An empty room can be used as an exercise room or a regular bedroom becomes a theatre room through the beautiful poster illustrations. These posters are done professionally real life using the same back ground of the rooms. This tool is very effective and powerful to help the buyers to visualize how they can use the space through the beautiful posters. While other companies suggested all the same marketing plans such as having advertisements, open houses etc., Alison remained the only one to suggested this innovative idea to us in our interviews with her and other Realty Companies.

Very smooth process from start to finish!
Alison was absolutely wonderful to work with! Both my husband and myself felt she made our home search and buying process a wonderful experience, when it could have easily been a very stressful one, with low inventory and home flying off the market the moment they were listed. We began our search with key neighborhoods that we could see ourselves living. Alison provided such valuable insight to each one to help us narrow our choice. Her patience, kindness, and professionalism were outstanding during our showings, each where we had a 1 year old in toe. Her commitment and seamless communication as we made our decisions were fantastic as well. We are thrilled with our new home, and Alison also helped us prep and sell our previous home! All and all we could not have had a better realtor!
