ABOUT ALLISON & CO.
MEET THE TEAM
Founded by Allison Angel with one simple aim – to bring the best customer service to an industry that has been missing it for sometime now! Welcome to Allison and Co – a team of people who love property and who are united in their shared passion to exceed customer expectation in all that they do. Here is a little more information about the team.
The founder of the company, Allison is now in her 11th year as owner of a significant and successful Estate Agency. Totally committed to customer excellence, professionally qualified and with high levels of integrity, Allison adopts a hands-on role in the business whilst also empowering the team to live and breath the Allison & Co company values. She is married to Junior, mum to 3 boys – Luke, Isaac and Noah, loves music, all things Mediterranean and the amazing Audacious Church in Manchester.
Mark is the newest member of the Allison & Co team and is responsible for our lettings portfolio. If Mark’s not in branch he’ll typically be somewhere else in Manchester showing a prospective tenant the property of their dreams! His background in hospitality (across various different industries), means Mark is very familiar with being of service to clients and ensuring their needs are met. Outside work he likes to partake in mountain biking, movies, comics and anything “techy” and /or “geeky”. He also knows a thing or two about coffee and makes a mean flat white!
Finance & Maintenance Assistant
Cath is one of the most cheerful people you will ever come across. Her “happy-go-lucky” style combined with a persistent and meticulous approach is a perfect blend in the Accounts role. Her remit includes maintenance, rent allocation and payments to landlords and suppliers. Cath loves travel and is especially mad about the U S of A! (Route 66, Texas, New York – she’s been to them all). She is also an avid Manchester United fan.
Jamie Widdop (Cemap)
Adding to the property services offered by Allison & Co, Jamie provides expert mortgage and insurance advice to a wide range of clients, including first time buyers, buy to let/investment landlords and re-mortgagees. Having previously worked for 4 years for a High Street lender he now enjoys offering a much wider choice of products and services truly centred around the needs of the customer. Before this Jamie was a personal trainer and loved helping people with their health and fitness goals. He has twin girls Jasmine & Isabelle and is quite partial to a day out on the Fylde coast.
There’s another Alison at Allison & Co (major confusion we know!) and she’ll typically be greeting you in branch or answering your call. This Alison has an enviable commute to work, living a mere 3 minute walk to the office. She’s married to Ivan and regularly spends time at their holiday home on the Cornish Riviera. Earlier this year she had a 4 week dream holiday in Australia, Thailand and Abu Dhabi.
Property Maintenance Assistant
Lesley is our very own Handywoman, responsible for attending to minor repairs and improvements in the properties managed by Allison & Co. She also carries out periodic property visits on behalf our of our landlord clients to inspect their condition. She is a true multi-tasker, able to turn her hand to many things and is very well connected across Manchester. If Lesley can’t fix it, she certainly knows someone who can! She owns her own home and also has a holiday let in Wales which she rents out to close friends and family. Lesley also works as a Door Supervisor in the City Centre and is fond of music by The Stone Roses and The Cortinas.

SEE THE DIFFERENCE
When you instruct Allison & Co to market your property, one thing you can be sure of is great photography. Anyone can take a quick photo but it takes time, expertise and the right equipment to produce strong visual imagery. Take a look at this small sample from properties we’ve recently SOLD or LET, along with their former images under different agents. If this was your property which photo would you choose to represent it?
At Allison & Co we’re all about giving the best service to our customers and it makes our day when we hear you’re happy! Here’s some of the lovely things our customers have told us. Move your mouse over the cards below or tap them to read the comments.
