I'm Allison, a Philadelphian, born and raised. As a child, I moved all around the area, living in East Mount Airy, the Northeast, Bensalem and then the Main Line. I spent summers down the shore in Ventnor, Atlantic City, and Ocean City. I currently live with my husband (Philly Home Guy, Christian) in our South Philly row home with our six-year-old son, Oliver and 5, yes I said 5, cats. We love our neighborhood, Passyunk Square, and might be bold enough to claim it’s the best 'hood in the city! Raising my son in Philadelphia, in a neighborhood I love is an enriching experience for my family of 3.
In my free time, I help run the CityKids Consignment Sale, a non-profit kids consignment sale run 2x per year in South Philly. As a parent, you buy so much stuff! Why not recycle it back into the community and make a little cash a the same time. The sale benefits Lilypad, a parenting/event space in South Philly. I also tend to my garden at Capitolo Community Garden, I'm involved in the HSA at Andrew Jackson Elementary where my son attends school.
Prior to joining the PHG team, I worked for many years as a digital project/product manager at many mighty Philadelphia-based companies. I like to say that my love of music and my obsession with the early days of MTV lead me on my career path as I went from working in record stores to CDNOW.com, the first online music store. We sold music online when Amazon only sold books! From there I made my way to Comcast, Urban Outfitters and then to well-known digital agencies Razorfish, Happy Cog and Think Company.
I'm bringing my experience as a client facing project manager into a new industry, real estate! I’m learning the ropes with the Philly Home Girls and I'm excited to forge new relationships and help my clients buy, sell and rent their homes.
