Barbara Allen


Barbara grew up in a small college town in western Massachusetts. She quickly understood the benefits of owning real estate as her family invested and prospered buying homes and income properties. By the time she was 24 years old, Barbara had purchased her first home - a triple-decker in Boston. Over the years, she has purchased numerous income properties in the Boston area.

After receiving a graduate degree from Boston University in Broadcasting, Barbara moved to Los Angeles to work in the film industry. She was very fortunate to work with some of the most talented people in the film business. Frequently, her jobs required her to work with difficult personalities in highly stressful conditions. Her years in film productions enabled her to multitask, adhere to deadlines, negotiate with vendors, remain calm and flexible, and thrive for perfection. All these experiences, combined with her love of real estate, make Barbara an incredible real estate agent.

When we decided it was time to move on from our rental, my wife and I did not want to buy a starter house; we wanted a place we could call home for decades. Barbara was excellent in guiding us through the entire home buying process.

Thanks to her ability to understand what we really wanted, she was able to find us our dream home, and thanks to her negotiating expertise, we were able to buy it for less than we expected to pay.

Over a year later, we still comment to ourselves how lucky we are that we have this house, and how we owe it all to Barbara.

I worked with Barbara on the purchase, and a few years later the sale again of my house in the Hollywood Hills – nothing could have been smoother! I was amazed at the number of qualified buyers she managed to recruit in such a short time, and at a time when houses were sitting for sale for months at a time, she got mine sold in just two and a half weeks. Thanks again Barbara.

A chance meeting at a birthday party a couple of years ago with Barbara Allen, put me on the road to home ownership. Once I made the decision to start looking, Barbara was there - answering every single question I had, big or small, sometimes she even answered them several times, reassuring me that I'd find the right place and keeping me calm through the roller coaster ride towards home ownership.

Barbara, is a very patient woman, and never pressured me to consider a condo just because. On several occasions she actually said, "No this won't be right for you, lets go". And by the time we found my place we both knew it was the right one.

Barbara is calm, very reassuring, and a good listener - all important traits in a real estate agent! She also knows what she is doing. I trusted her to get me through the process, and am now living in a beautiful condo that is mine! Thanks Barbara!

We just bought our first home with the incomparable Barbara at our side. The current home buying market is extremely competitive, and if it weren't for Barbara we would've been lost.

As our representative, Barbara advocated tirelessly for us. No matter how small our question, no matter what time of day, Barbara was always there with an answer. And, from mortgage shopping to the inspection process and beyond, she made each step seem easy. We cannot recommend her enough.!
