Allison Meston

B.Ed, REALTOR®, Associate

I first came to Edmonton to attend the University of Alberta, getting my first chance to experience this city, I fell in love with its vibrancy. Whether you’re looking for a city view, living on the river valley, or being close to shops and restaurants, this city truly has the best neighborhoods. Edmonton really is one of those unique ‘big’ cities that still has the friendly feel of a small town.

After graduating university, I’ve been fortunate enough to have a wide range of work and personal experiences. Working at our family’s environmental and construction companies, I worked extensively in Business Development, Human Resources, and Inside Sales. When they tell you that ‘what the fine prints says, counts,’ I have put in the hard work to know how true this statement is. The fast growth and success of our business, has allowed me to pursue my passion for Real Estate. My husband and I have always been passionate about the Real Estate process and home renovations; together we have bought, renovated and sold almost every style of residential property.

I love adventures and getting away from it all, whether I am taking in all of festivals held here year-round, trying food at our amazing local restaurants, minutes from our doorsteps, or travelling the world with friends and family, I think it’s important to find time to love your life. I spend my spare time camping with my family, playing slowpitch with friends, golfing with my husband, or spending outdoor time in the river valley.

allie-kidsI’ve always been loyal to a fault, focusing on the quality of my relationships and working together as a team. I look forward to helping you find your dream home and am so thankful to be where I am in life, let me put my vast professional and Real Estate experience to work for you.

How I Liv

If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
Eleanor Roosevelt – She convinced her husband to run for president, attended all of his meetings as he suffered from Polio, was a huge humanitarian, and her quotes – she seemed wise beyond her years. I would love to have met her.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
Allow my parents to retire, grab my husband and kids and take them on a trip around the world!

What did you get into trouble for the most as a child?
Being a “Social Butterfly” – what can I say, I like to talk to people

What’s your favourite restaurant in Edmonton?
RGE RD, Harwood Grill, and Japonais Bistro

What’s the best vacation you’ve ever taken?
I loved Morocco, Vietnam, and Peru – it’s fun to be immersed into a completely different culture than what you’re used to!

What’s your favorite quote?
“I am who I am today, because of the choices I made yesterday” – shockingly by Eleanor Roosevelt 😉

If you could be a character in a book or movie, which one would you be?
Any Jane Austen Character. Probably Elizabeth Bennet – I love Pride and Prejudice so much, and I don’t know a women that wouldn’t want to fall in love with Mr. Darcy.
