It is hard to imagine that I only met Alison a month before I bought my house. I truly felt like I've known her for years. Alison projects a relaxed, comfortable image that helps you and guides you as you go through a major experience. 90% of our transactions were done by phone, fax and e-mails. She kept me promptly informed and held my hand when needed. Her knowledge is apparent and is portrayed in a understandable manner. Would I recommend her - in a heartbeat!
I had Ms Restivo looking for a home for me in the High Pointe Terrace area. Her knowledge of the Memphis Real Estate market gave me confidence that she would find me a good value and she did. High Pointe is a very hot area and moving immediately she assisted me in establishing a fair offer and then helped me negotiate the final sales terms and price.
I had a challenging loan approval process and she was there with me every step of the way with technical and professional advice but maybe more importantly moral support that literally kept me from abandoning the purchase when things got tough.
I can honestly say that without Ms Restivo I would not be in my home right now.
I was in the home building business for several years and I have worked with a lot of Realtors and I can honestly say she is one of the best I have seen. I would highly recommend interviewing her for your Real Estate needs. Buy or Sell.
Helped me rent a Single Family home in Midtown, Memphis, TN.
Alison Restivo is the most wonderful realtor I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with; period, hands down! She respects her clients and works with their well-being and interest in mind. Now, I don't normally write review, but Mrs. Restivo truly deserves a shout out and you as a questioning consumer deserve to know the quality and skills that she possesses. Whenever I have had any issues with the property I rent from her, she is readily available and deals with the problem in a professional and timely manner. I would recommend Restivo Realtors to anyone looking for one of the best in the business for Memphis real estate.
Alison held our hands throughout the entire process - from the moment we first listed our house until we moved into our brand-new home. She was so knowledgeable and patient, even when we changed our target neighborhood several times over! Alison was our advocate and our therapist along the way, and we couldn't be happier with our results. I would highly recommend Alison to anyone looking for a real estate professional. She was a treat to work with!
I was moving to Memphis rather abruptly for my job and had to sort out buying a new house very quickly. Alison very quickly understood my needs and helped work within my schedule. I would strongly recommend her to anyone moving to Memphis interested in the Midtown area. She's very knowledgable and helpful.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Midtown, Memphis, TN.
We were very fortunate to work with Alison for purchasing our new home in Midtown. We were looking for a small, reasonably priced home in specific school zones in Midtown. We wanted to start out without a buyer's agent. We had called for several other listed homes and the listing agents were not very responsive, one was totally unwilling to show us the home ("it is too small for you"). When we came across the home we now purchased, Alison was the listing agent. We called her, she immediately responded and showed us the property. She even called us back later that evening with more information we had casually asked about. We were very impressed by her expertise, professionalism, local knowledge. We felt so comfortable with her that we asked her to work with us without a buying agent, luckily the seller agreed to this arrangement. She navigated very masterfully, efficiently and tactfully through the negotiation process and - based on appraisal and research - the sales price we agreed on was perfectly in the middle for buyer and seller. Throughout the process, she did display genuine concern for an honest and fair transaction for both sides. She provided excellent service, referred contractors with very competitive prices, opened the house several times for our contractors, responded to emails/calls immediately, walked us through the process and answered every single of our questions. We will definitely recommend her to everyone we know and will definitely call her again if we buy or sell another house.
Alison was our landlord before she became our realtor. We absolutely adore her, and would trust her with any of our properties. She has a wonderful knowledge of Memphis especially the mid-town. Alison is charming and very easy to get a hold of; we truly feel like she has become a dear friend!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Midtown, Memphis, TN.
Alison was the utmost professional in this process. I know my results are unusual in this market (she sold my house in 2 weeks) but because I followed all of her suggestions for staging and presenting the house, I feel it moved faster than usual. Her demeanor is calm and pleasant and helpful. I hadn't sold a home in 25 years so the process was new to me, but she took the stress out of that also by handling the process so expeditiously and professionally. I will use her again and I will recommend her to my friends.

If looking for property this is the realtor for u.She's very helpful and dependable.If not for Alison Restivo I dont think I would have found my mother a home.I contacted other realtors and they would call me back hours later or not at all.I was at the point like what's going on.I called Alison and at that very moment I felt immediate relief.She answered every question I had and on top of that she was very patient with me and thats what u need going through a process like this.I mean,I wasnt spending a whole lot of money and the way she worked with me was like i was buying a house that was over a $100,000.No job to big or to small thats why i would recommend Alison Restivo for the job. I cant thank her enough, THANKS again to the Restivo Group
