Growing up in Oklahoma City and graduating from Moore High School, Allison was surrounded by real estate. Her step-father (a building contractor) and mother owned a real estate company. Showing appointments, checking on job sites, negoiating contracts and holding open houses were just a way of life for them. Her parents took great pride in finding the perfect lot, an ideal floor plan and designing a home with ammenities that few had seen and knew it was important to stay informed and know the up and coming trends. Their mind set was work hard and then there would be time to play hard.
After attending the University of Oklahoma, she worked for the Hertz Corporation traveling the country installing their first universal computer system. She then accepted a position with IBM in Raleigh, NC. A promotion took her to Atlanta, GA where she lived prior to moving to Wilmington. Allison and her husband have been in the area for the last 22 years. They have bought and sold both residential and commercial property all over New Hanover and Brunswick Counties including Landfall and Wrightsville Beach.

Louie helped us through a difficult time selling my mother in law’s house. He was always in touch with us about details and helping with appointments about the house. I would definitely recommend him and his coworkers to anyone needing a realtor.
When we moved to Wilmington Allison Horton was our agent and did an excellent job helping us find the right house. We didn't have much time, but she gave us all of her time for 3 days straight, showing us all around the area and lots of potential houses until we were sure of the one we finally chose. So when it was time to move again we chose Allison to be our seller's agent because we knew she would give it her all. We are very pleased with the results.
Working with Allison was the best decision we made. Allison came highly recommended from a colleague and for good reason. Allison was extremely attentive to our interests in a home, and always quick to respond in a helpful and friendly way. In a market that is tough for buyers, Allison was constantly searching for the perfect home for us, as these homes were being sold as quickly as they were going on the market. The home we ended up purchasing was posted on a Sunday night, and we put an offer in that same week on a Wednesday! Without Allison's guidance, advice, and quick action, we most certainly may have missed our perfect home opportunity, or perhaps settled for a home that was not the perfect fit for our family of 5. This was easily the biggest and most intricate purchase for us as of yet, and we were so grateful to have had Allison there each step of the way. Thank you Allison, we truly enjoyed working with you!!
