“Alanna McQuaid is a mix of industry knowledge, marketing strategy expertise, effervescent personality and genuine kindness.  She takes the time to understand your needs and goals, and matches that to your best opportunity.  Alanna cultivates client relationships and truly cares about them which is very different from many sales representatives that I’ve worked with in the past in various capacities.  That trusted relationship makes all the difference.”
