Owner and Managing Broker at Conscious Real Estate
Allison Parks was raised in the cornfields of rural Illinois, while playing all of the sports. She moved to Denver in 1999, two days after graduating from Southern Illinois University. Allison counseled at-risk teens for several years, while completing a master’s of social science from the University of Colorado at Denver and specializing in data analysis. She most certainly never thought she would work in real estate or own a business, but life is often full of surprises…
Turned out, real estate was a perfect match and she couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Allison loves advocating for her clients and finding ways to creatively solve problems. While many people never “use their degree,” she regularly applies her training in data analysis to the real estate market and occasionally writes sassy rebuttals to statistical interpretations from popular news sources and local bloggers.
One Christmas Eve, Allison had a vision of running a business that gave back to the community, although she didn’t know what this meant or how to do it. A week later, she came across a brokerage on the east coast that donated a portion of their commissions to nonprofits. She immediately developed a similar model and her life has never been the same. Through Conscious Real Estate, she has personally donated tens of thousands of dollars to date and has become a staunch advocate of do-good businesses and social enterprise. She is constantly inspired by our local nonprofits and social enterprises and is surrounded by amazing people that she has met through these organizations.
When not doing real estate, Allison can be found practicing yoga, rock climbing, at nonprofit events, burying herself in a book, being an amateur film critic, spending time with her rescue dogs, or brainstorming with her nonprofit and socially-conscious business friends.
Please contact Allison to get started in buying or selling a home, if you are interested in joining the Conscious Real Estate brokerage, or even if you would just like to learn more about social enterprise and do-good businesses in Colorado.
