Welcome to my very first blog! My name is Alison Martel and I am celebrating my 10 year anniversary as a licensed Realtor with Manor Windsor Realty. I specialize in residential resale and income properties (buying & selling) within Essex County. I truly love our community and pride myself on my knowledge of school districts, neighbourhood information & related services and recent area sales & the newest listings – including mortgages, insurance and inspections. I provide all my clients with a hands on approach, from start to finish, helping them to obtain their real estate goals successfully with the least amount of stress! I believe a house is not a home because of room dimensions or the colour of the walls. It’s about how you feel when you walk through the front door and the way you instantly envision your life unfolding there. This is more than about real estate! Its about your life & dreams!

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family & friends, traveling, reading & writing, trying out new recipes (I love to cook) and giving back to the community in which I live. I have been a volunteer for over 8 years with Easter Seals Ontario helping organize their local annual telethon raising thousands of dollars to provide children and youth with physical disabilities service, programs and mobility equipment!

I thought it would be a great idea to start a weekly blog as an outlet to share my passion for real estate with others. Through my blog I am looking forward to provide readers with helpful information, tricks of the trade, decorating trends, monthly stats, upcoming events in our community, open house news and even a little travel and historical guide for homes in other amazing cities around the globe just for fun! I am hoping other real estate enthusiasts will join in the conversation. I am here to help with professional advice if you have any questions. I can be easily reached on my cell phone at 519-551-4139, via email at alisonmartel@live.com or leave a comment below. I look forward to hearing from you. What interests you most about real estate?
