Skillfully Using Today’s Technology to Find Your Next Home

Monday, December 6th, 2021 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Today’s Real Estate market is moving at light speed. Numerous buyers are home shopping at a distance and are unable to physically view homes they are interested in before they are sold. More than ever, the skilled use of today’s technology provides the solution for many of these buyers.

Allen Realty is one such firm that utilizes professional-grade photographs and listing videos to assist buyers and sellers in making the quick and informed decisions that are often required today to create a win-win sale.

The powerhouse driving Allen Realty is Sam Allen. He and his wife, Randi, both love East Tennessee. They are young, enthusiastic, and driven. They also love the real estate business. In a way, Sam even has real estate in his blood. Both of his parents sold and built real estate, and he enjoyed the process from his childhood. It is not a surprise that he ended up running his own successful real estate company.

Sam and Randi created and designed Allen Realty to go the extra mile to create a personalized, intimate experience for their clients in their home sale or purchasing endeavors. Allen Realty uses an approach to real estate that combines sales and marketing savvy with today’s leading-edge technology.

Sam’s video narrations convey not only the details of the house, but also the emotional reasons that would lead a buyer to see the value in this property as their future “home”. He goes the extra mile to show potential buyers how it might feel for them and their family to actually live there.

And even though today’s technology is pivotal to the success of Allen Realty, equally important is Sam’s ability to truly listen and learn about his clients.

In this issue of East Tennessee’s Mountain Views, we are happy to introduce you to this energetic and focused couple, Sam and Randi Allen.

MV: Tell us a little bit about yourselves.

Randi: We both grew up in a small suburban town in southern California called Murrieta. Sam grew up with his mom and dad and two sisters. He was the captain of our high school football team and went on to pursue an engineering degree after graduation at California State University Maritime Academy.

Sam: Randi grew up with her mom and dad and three siblings. She played competitive soccer, and later pursued her degree in Child and Adolescent Development at Point Loma Nazarene University. We started dating our junior year of high school and remained together throughout college.

Sam: I relocated to East TN a few years later where I married my high school sweetheart, Randi, and have been selling real estate ever since! We currently live in Rarity Bay on Tellico Lake with our dog Mr. Benny. I can truly say I love what I do! Real estate is something that I’ve enjoyed since I was a kid. Both of my parents sold and built real estate.

MV: Tell us about your decision to leave California and why you chose East Tennessee.

Sam: In 2017, we made our move to Nashville where Sam worked as an engineer at Omni Hotel, and Randi pursued her BSN in nursing at Marian University. Sam’s parents had been looking to retire and move near a lake in TN, and Randi’s sister lived in Nashville. We both decided that moving to TN would be a great option for us as we both absolutely loved visiting, and a large amount of our family were relocating to TN as well.

Randi: Also, we chose to make East TN our forever home because of the undeniable beauty and countless activities it has to offer. We both felt that this was truly an amazing place to one day raise a family, while also providing uniquely beautiful communities for our parents to retire.

MV:  Sounds like you’re both quite committed not only to each other, but to real estate as well!

Sam: Randi is as fully committed to our real estate venture as I am. We left 2 otherwise successful careers to pursue new careers in the real estate marketplace, and we are as committed to supporting each other as we are committed to every single client. We wouldn’t be making a major investment in a state-of-the-art real estate facility in Vonore if we weren’t committed!

MV: Tell us more about your transition from engineering, and Randi’s decision to leave nursing to join you at Allen Realty.

Randi: After a few months of working at Omni hotel, Sam decided that engineering was not for him, and pursued real estate as a full-time career. Sam had been around the real estate world for as long as he could remember, as his grandmother was a broker, his mother was a real estate agent, and his father built homes. He took an interest in real estate at an early age, and always knew he would somehow incorporate it into his life. Sam moved to Vonore from Nashville, and I soon followed when we got married in 2018. After three years of working as a realtor, Sam expanded his business further by getting his broker’s license.

Sam: Randi started working as a nurse at UT Medical Center after she moved to Vonore but decided to quit in 2020 after we made the decision to open our own real estate office. Randi is now completing her real estate license.

MV: How does Allen Realty differentiate itself from other realtors in the area?

Sam: We are a boutique real estate firm, which differentiates us from majority of other firms in the area. We are meticulous and go the extra mile to create a personalized, intimate experience from start to finish when assisting clients with their home search. We created our office space for clients to feel at home and want everyone to see and feel the pride we take in our business as well as the sincere gratitude we have for those who choose to work with Allen Realty. I believe our meticulous nature can be clearly visualized through the quality of work we provide when helping clients buy or sell homes.

MV: How important are the quality photos you provide your clients compared to the cell phone images that others often rely upon?

Sam: We use top notch photographers and videographers to perfectly capture the essence of every unique home. The personalized photos and videos that we use to advertise have very clearly set us apart from other firms in the area.

MV: Describe your marketing philosophy.

Sam: We place a big emphasis on online marketing because 90% of buyers nowadays search online. We spend the majority of our marketing dollars on online advertisement to get our listings in front of as many people as possible.

MV:  Anything else you feel would be important to add? Maybe your secret weapon, Mr. Benny?

Randi: Our passion and enthusiasm for this area is ultimately what led us to opening our own real estate office. We want as many people as possible to be aware of East TN and assist those interested in finding a place to call home.

Sam: We’re passionate about real estate, and I believe that can be seen in everything that we do. Selling real estate is more than just a career to us, it is our genuine calling in this life. We are absolutely thrilled to be opening our own office, and we hope to see many new faces walking through our doors! You may or may not be greeted by our joyful, enthusiastic office dog, Mr. Benny!

Randi:  And don’t forget! Be sure to check out our website and “take a tour” yourself! One of those amazing properties could be your next home!
