Alison Paoli

Director of Operations

The thought of sitting still makes Alison Paoli stir crazy … which is why she’s the perfect person to be the Director of Operations for Neighborhood Experts. She helps our always-on-the-go Realtors do what they do best. Plus, as a longtime real estate industry professional herself, she knows exactly how to support our team and keep things moving seamlessly day to day.

In her role as Director of Operations, Alison supports Paige’s philanthropy efforts, community integrations, marketing, and day-to-day operations. She is a creative and relentless problem solver who is driven to succeed in just about anything she does. Alison is especially proud to help Neighborhood Experts uphold its commitment to our local community. She helps make sure we don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk (and we do it wearing really nice shoes).

Alison started working in the real estate world in 2008 after purchasing her first home. She found the whole process to be simultaneously fascinating and stressful – more stressful than it needed to be. During her 10-year career at Zillow, Alison was an integral part of the team that built the company from the ground up and took it public in 2011. She also spent seven years working with real estate economists and data analysts, helping them tell the hard data stories of the real estate collapse in 2008, and the recovery in later years. She’s now working toward getting her real estate license and we can not wait to add her to our roster or Realtors.

Even when Alison isn’t technically working, she still likes to work – whether she’s volunteering, working on home projects, or gardening. She’s lived in Gig Harbor for 10 years with her husband and their three daughters. All three of her girls are active with Harbor Premier Soccer, so that means she spends lots of her time driving around town dropping off and picking up her kids from practice. Her life is truly full from the moment she wakes up to the time she goes to bed — and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
