Jim Allen earned a degree in engineering, which has helped him succeed in the real estate industry. His first position in the field was with a firm that was heavily involved in new construction. Allen’s technical background and the knowledge he acquired on the job allowed him to quickly become a leader in the industry. After the firm was sold, Allen joined Prudential Carolinas Realty. Former clients who were impressed by his high level of service referred others, which helped him become a leader at the company.
Allen transitioned his business to Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston in 2009 and soon began winning awards, including the International President's Premier Award, the highest honor a Coldwell Banker agent can receive. The Jim Allen Group now consists of over 45 real estate agents dedicated to helping the people of North Carolina buy, sell, or build their dream homes. The Wall Street Journal ranked the team No. 20 in volume and No. 13 in sales in 2018. In 2017, they were named the No. 1 Coldwell Banker team in North America.
The team at the Jim Allen Group is dedicated to understanding their clients’ individual needs and exceeding their expectations with exceptional service. Agents are available seven days a week and are supported by a devoted and knowledgeable staff. Allen and his team support their community by volunteering to help those in need. They organize fundraisers, contribute to non-profit foundations, and participate in a variety of charitable events.
