Allison Irwin has worked independently and as part of teams specializing in sales of luxury homes in the Phoenix area for more than 15 years. Combining her real estate experience and creative talents, she formed Homes by 1962 to provide a much needed product that would resonate with homebuyers desiring urban living in well-executed renovations of single family dwellings with a stylistic edge. Allison finds properties rich with potential for renovating into a style inspired by mid-century modern design elements – simplicity, efficient use of space and uncomplicated, organic aesthetics – and incorporates environmental features and technologies before resale. Working with a select team of construction professionals, she oversees a project from design concept through renovation completion and resale. Alongside Homes by 1962 she publishes a memoir chronicling life leading up to Homes by 1962 as well as the day-to-day journey of finding the perfect home, loving it and eventually passing it on to a happy owner.
A graduate of the University of Arizona, Allison resides in Central Phoenix with her husband and three young children.
