Real Estate By Design
Alison is a people person – she also loves property and would say interior design is her most passionate interest, but it’s her place in the community which stirs her soul. She relates beautifully to others, listens to the needs of families with whom she’s working, and ends up counting many of them as friends. She also has many repeat clients who love her honest, calm and relaxed manner, as well as her perseverance when necessary and the fact that she’s simply always available.
Her goal in her work is to provide a service way beyond what clients expect, making a potentially stressful experience an enjoyable one with minimal disruption and an exciting end result. She has a deep-rooted desire to get it right for people, and therefore never loses her enthusiasm or willingness to work hard.
Born in the UK, Alison married there and together they literally sailed their way to New Zealand. Having worked mainly in the film industry, she then decided on a change in career around ’96 and hasn’t looked back. Her love of life and genuine approach allowed her to quickly find her feet in the Auckland real estate market. Having lived in Auckland for 20 years, in Remuera, Glendowie, and now Mission Bay, she and her family of four children proudly call New Zealand home.
Alison is supported by her husband, Robert Jackson-Mee, who has over 35 years experience in commercial photography advertising top international brands. He also has an in-depth knowledge of the building industry, is a licensed real estate salesperson, and having spent five years living in Hong Kong speaks pretty good Cantonese. Together they make a formidable team!
“In 2016 I decided after 14 successful years at Unlimited Potential that I would make a change to Ray White. However, after 2 years in the Bays I came to the conclusion that the Corporate style just wasn’t me. So I chose to ‘ go back to the future’ and re-join my lovely friends at UP....to be honest it felt like going home! The in-house design team do such a wonderful job of creating bespoke marketing solutions. I know the value of tailored solutions for each vendor. After all each property is unique. This together with hands on management and a team of experienced salespeople who meet three times per week to discuss in detail what we collectively need to do to create winning results for homeowners.”
Needless to say we are thrilled to have Alison back in the UP family.

We cannot speak highly enough of Alison’s marketing and sale of our property. With no final inspection of renovations we carried out over 20 years ago, to say the process was complex is an understatement.
All the qualities you would wish for in an agent Alison has – She is experienced and knowledgeable, honest, unflappable and true to every other adjective other reviewer’s have used here.
Alison’s advice on the approach to marketing proved spot on and saw unprecedented numbers of potential buyers view our home and ultimately, 5 bidders take part in the auction. This outcome was wholly down to Alison’s understanding of the market, her advice and her sheer hard work.
Our review would be incomplete without also mentioning Alison’s husband and 2IC, Robert. His enthusiasm and positivity were a great antidote to any trepidation we were feeling and he too played a pivotal role in selling our property.
Alison and Robert are a class act and, if we were in the habit of regularly buying and selling property, we would have them on speed dial.
If you are selling, do yourself a favour and give Alison a call.
