Celebrating Delta’s women in business

The Delta Optimist presents the annual Women in Business special feature
Alison Steen.

In honour of International Women's Week, the Delta Optimist celebrates some of the women behind local businesses who are, in turn, helping the economy grow.

Alison Steen

Buying or selling a home can be one of the largest financial decisions you will make and it can seem like an intimidating experience. But if you work with Alison Steen, she will streamline the process, save your time and money, and make it a stress-free experience. She will always tell you the truth and give you the facts that are in your best interest.

“I never want to be that realtor who makes promises they can’t keep just to get a contract—that’s not fair to you. I’m invested in my clients, my career and my community—I’m not just making a sale or purchase, I’m getting to know a new neighbour,” says Steen.

Steen always keeps in mind her clients’ needs first and never pressures them into making a sale they aren’t sure of. She is a great communicator, who has an honest approach to market sales.

Alongside You

AlongsideYouAlongside You team. By Alongside You

When Alongside You first started, the goal was always to meet the needs of the community and fill gaps in services. One of the areas the clinic has identified as a need was massage therapy.

The repeated message around town seemed to be, “I can’t get in to see a massage therapist for two months!” Alongside You wanted to do something about it because massage can be an excellent way to relax, de-stress, manage pain, work with mental health and much more.

They started last year with Katrina Per, their first Registered Massage Therapist (RMT), and they’re glad to be expanding this service by bringing on Sarah Gerrard, RMT.

Soon, Alongside You will be adding massage therapy students to provide lower cost options.

Alongside You always looks after your body, mind and soul. For more information, visit
