About Allie

My clients know me for my glass of wine with a friend approach – as in working with me feels a lot more like having a glass of wine with a friend than being sold to. I walk first time home buyers through the ins and outs of the home buying process and help them make smart real estate decisions while also helping sellers by strategically marketing their homes to attract the right buyers.  I would love to get to know you and help you through the process!   

As you know I am a Real Estate, but I like to refer to it as a Real Estate Matchmaker -  I am also a wife to my husband, Derrick, mom to our teenage son Kaiden, and dog mom to my little Miss Luna.  I am still in disbelief my son is 16; moms out there, how do you handle this!?  I have yet to master the not having a heart attack every time he drives away! 

I had been told for years before I started that Real Estate would be a great career for me but because it was considered a “Sales” position all I could think about was a used car salesman (no offense to anyone who does that as a career, but you know what I am saying the typical stereotype, slicked back hair, smooth talker, and pushy)  All things that are not me, (well, maybe the slicked back hair if I didn’t shower that day) ???? I had to find my own way of doing it infusing my passion, helping people.  I want to be here to help my clients, I have the knowledge and they have the need.  All while staying true to me, I love to make people laugh, be real even when it’s not pretty (this is not Selling Sunset ????), but ultimately make the experience fun and memorable! 

I’m addicted to TJ Maxx, interior design and entertaining. I am always changing up the rooms in our home (much to my husband’s dismay, and our bank account!) Otherwise, you’ll find me hosting dinners, wine nights, or diving into another murder mystery on TV. 

I also help out at my husband’s Auto Performance and Repair shop with the books and office duties. Once in a while I even get my hands dirty (no lie I can change my own oil, brakes, and have even helped swap an engine!) Our family is passionate about cars and a little fun fact there is a solid chance I am the “fastest” Real Estate Agent in the area, I have recently worked up the courage to pursue drag racing, talk about an adrenaline rush!  I have competed at our local street drags at the La Crosse Speedway and took 1st place!  Truthfully when they handed me the trophy, I was shaking so bad I about dropped it!  Now a days if we are on the track, you will usually find us at Rockfalls Raceway near Eau Claire where my best ¼ mile time is a 10.5 at 135!  So, in the fast market, don’t worry I’m all about moving fast! ???? 

I am part of the La Crescent Lions club, I joined them for the same reason I chose to come to Castle, the community give back.  I also volunteer for the Meals on Wheels program through Neighbors in Action.  I am always striving to find ways to give back to our community.


Meet the Agent

Community Give Back:

Castle's commitment to the community and making it a better place is a big reason I decided this is the place I want to continue to grow my career!

I am a huge advocate in giving back and helping when you can.  I currently participate in the Meals on Wheels program and am part of the La Crescent Lions club where we do a number of events/fundraisers to help raise money for the community and making it a better place.  

Family:

My husband and I have been together for 18 years, we have one child,  our son Kaiden who is now 16!!  (I am still in disbelief that that's even possible!  Moms out there how do you handle this!  I have yet to master the not having a heart attack every time he drives away!)  And last but certainly not least I am a dog mom to my little miss Luna, a 12-year-old black lab we rescued about 6 years ago.

Bucket List:

I have quite a few things on my bucket list but while most are lofty, (and I hope to do at least one of them) my main one is pretty (hopefully) attainable.  I want to someday own a small modern farmhouse with a view and mini goats.  

Otherwise, most are hefty and involve travel... see the Egyptian pyramids, stay in a glass igloo in Finland to watch the Northern Lights, Drive a Porsche 911 GT3 down the coast.  Fingers crossed to at least cross one of these off that list someday ????

I don't know how it could have been better! Allie was extremely helpful at all times. She knew what we could afford and worked hard to get us taken care of.
