She has particular interest in the Forest's complex history and enjoys the relaxed and friendly nature of the local people.

Alison has worked in the property industry for 27 years predominantly in the new build sector. Since joining Stratford and Stratford she is enjoying the diversity that the second hand property market provides. Alison also recently gained her Associate qualification with the Guild of Professional Estate agents. A keen gardener she is lucky enough to be a local allotment holder in Totton (a border town to the New Forest) and enjoys a large family including her young grandchildren.
If you visit us in the office you will likely be welcomed by Jack. He likes to exert his warning 'woof' first to establish his 'guard dog' role but then will quickly look to you for some affection! Jack, a well loved black Labrador, has been attending the office for several years and has excellent knowledge of the best dog walks in the Forest. The Forest is home to lots of very friendly dogs who love the endless space to run.
The team are also supported by two administrators who both live locally and have a wealth of local knowledge and contacts.
