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.

Alison and I go back to 2012 when my husband and I started looking for our first home in Auckland in which to raise our two little boys. I immediately struck up a good relationship with Alison due to her warm smile and her sincere genuine understanding of our goals. Her excellent knowledge of the market and her attitude of going above and beyond in helping us find that perfect home and keeping it real made me want to seek her out again when it came to sell nearly eight years later. Without her I don’t think we could have got the job done, as in the end it became quite a sad and challenging property to put to the market. Her expectations were spot on and she was always there to reassure us that we were on track, her feedback and research was outstanding and we felt safe in her very capable hands. Alison worked very hard for us and bent over backwards, so I can express nothing but the highest of recommendations as she continues to help people buy and sell real estate.
