Prior to becoming a realtor , I was a business owner in the Hospitality and Travel Industry serving Fortune 500 companies with their incentive travel programs around the world for 13 years where I lived in four countries and traveled to 77! I then spent the next 13 years on the Caribbean island of St. Maarten/St. Martin where I owned a destination management company that catered to a high-end clientele with travel needs including a diplomatic meeting of President George Herbert Walker Bush and the French Prime Minister Francois Mitterand as well as all the ground arrangements for the State Department, CNN, ABC and CBS.
Having been born and raised in Waterville, Maine while summering in Belgrade Lakes it was only natural that I return to raise my two sons in a place known for “The Way Life Should Be”. A better choice could not have been made. I have 2 adult sons, graduates of Babson College and Bentley University. I am indeed the proverbial “soccer mom” who has traveled not only throughout the state of Maine, but up and down the East Coast to watch my boys compete on their state championship teams. It paid off as both sons played during college ; one as a goalkeeper and the other as a midfielder.
I am enthusiastic, knowledgeable and dedicated to making sure all my buyers and sellers working with me have the smoothest possible experience in purchasing or selling their home. With my background I know how to provide a high level of customer service beyond the norm. Let me show you.

Allison was very realistic given our goals in selling our house. She was very responsive (we think she works 24/7) and she worked very professionally to get issues resolved. She is patient when explaining the market and how things work given we have not sold a house for almost 20 year. We would highly recommend Allison. John & Terry G. Nov 2018
The buying process with Allison was painless! She’s amazing at what she does and I recommend her to everyone thinking of buying! I will use her if I decide to take that road again! I can’t say enough good things. Zachary Mitchell Oct 2018
The first time I spoke with Allison over the phone, she put me at ease and I immediately felt comfortable with her. She went out of her way to accommodate my schedule as I was looking for property from out of state. Her level of patience, expertise and dedication is the highest and most ethical of any realtor I have ever worked with. The closing went smoothly and only took a short time thanks to all the details Allison took care of ahead of time. She is more concerned about helping people find the perfect home rather then making a sale. I have enjoyed getting to know her as a person and am confident that I can call on her with any question that I may have as I relocate. Ann L . Nov 2018
She was wonderful to work with. Nobody will work harder for you. Plus she's super nice. She was always looking out for us and our goals. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Awesome!! Kerry W . 10/2018
Allison provided an unbelievable level of services for one of my family members. Some of the services are not listed in any job description of a realtor. Without her personal and business involvement with my cousin, the sale of her home and purchase of a new home would not have happened. We owe her a lot of gratitude and will always think of her as a friend of the family. I would never hesitate to refer her services to anyone...even in writing as I am doing now. Georgette M. 9/2018
We contacted Allison to sell our primary home after meeting her when she had listed another home in our neighborhood. We were impressed with her people skills, knowledge of the market and the area and especially her willingness to do open houses in an area where very few realtors do them. She was absolutely phenomenal to work with and always had time for our questions, concerns etc. She took away a lot of the stress that the selling of our home of 35 years created for us. We would recommend Allison without hesitation. Monique & Tom F. 8/2018
Allison went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and made the house buying process effortless! Her years of experience was priceless!! Would highly recommend her to family and friends!! Jennifer A 7/2018
I bought my first home this spring. I was worried about navigating the process. I was put in contact with Allison through an online real estate website. Allison not only made the process manageable; it was actually pretty fun. Some of the key things that impressed me were: 1. great communication skills 2. clear explanations about every step of the process 3. she does her homework; she knows the market, the financial institutions, home inspectors, etc. 4. she gave me really good advice in a highly professional manner 5. she answers the phone and responds to e-mails quickly.

It was just shear luck that I found Allison. I was hot in the trail of my dream house in Maine, 600 mikes from my current home. She was not only a pro, but a lovely and kind person as well. And sharp as a tack. I felt well represented. There is a happy ending. I got my dream cottage and couldn’t be happier. My house and Allison are both gems. S.Levine 6/2018
Allison is top notch and a great advocate and negotiator. She was very familiar with the area, thorough and listened carefully to what we wanted. She had good advice on where to look, the latest information on the area, prices, and what was available. She is also a first class negotiator and did a great job ensuring items we wanted the seller to address got done. If you want a real partner in your search for your new home, Allison is the person you want to call. J.Calderwood 3/2018
My husband and I have bought and sold a number of investment and residential properties. Allison Pilitsis is one of the most diligent, courteous, and knowledgeable realtors we have encountered. Because we live out of state, we really needed someone to guide us in selecting properties in Maine. Alison worked tirelessly to find us the perfect properties for our needs. She was responsive and timely to answer our many questions and concerns. We would recommend her highly as a real estate professional. Mike and Lisa A. 2/2018
She is awesome. 5 Stars in all categories. Allison sold the camp in 7 month. - The camp went up for sale at a reasonable price in 2015. No luck by the first family member trying to sell the camp using a “Local” real estate agent. Per the "Local" real estate's advice, we gradually lowered the price, still no luck. Beginning of 2017, I was asked to take over the responsibility selling the camp. I called around and a professional family friend suggested to use Allison Pilitsis. Allison was busy but she realized we needed help! Allison living 2 hours (100 miles) away "Not Local" to the area took over. Creating all new pictures, restage the area, cleaned up the camp and researched the area for clients. –SOLD- D Jewell. 12/2017
Allison helped me purchase my first house; I found her to be incredibly helpful and knowledgeable on the ins and outs of the home buying process, as well as very thorough in her representation of us. She was willing to put in the time to make sure we felt comfortable in our decisions, and I'd wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a hardworking, dedicated professional, who truly cares about her clients. M Neczepor 11/2017
Allison gave personal attention to the estate property that she sold for us. She is one of those rare people who listens and it is reflected in the listing and service she provided. She is a gem. B. Knight 12/2017
Allison helped us to acquire a small waterfront cabin - a lakeside property that we're still pinching ourselves over. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor. Allison was prompt in her responses to my countless questions and was as honest as could be. She skillfully guided us through each of the steps we had to take with the friendliest demeanor. We were so pleased with Allison's professionalism and down to earth nature-a true delight to deal with. K. Smith 11/2017
