Allen Greenman manages the Worcester Office for ERA Key Realty Services, with a team of roughly 40 agents dedicated to serving the Central Massachusetts and Metro-West of Boston Marketplaces. Allen is available to serve his clients Real Estate needs in conjunction with his management duties. “I believe that being a selling-manager, while non-competitive, keeps the pulse of the marketplace at my fingertips and allows me to better serve my agents in their day to day business challenges. It positively affects my training, leadership and experience.”
Prior to joining ERA Key Realty Services as a Manager, Allen was with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Shrewsbury where he was a member of the International Sterling Society, completed CBRB management training in Waltham, and was a regular top 5 producer in the the office.
A long-time Central Massachusetts resident; Allen is very familiar with the ebb and flow of his market. “The particulars that fascinate me are absorption rates for varying locales, and what buyers see as ‘value’ in a house and whether or not that’s incongruent with available inventory or seller expectation.” The underlying factors driving market fluctuations largely center around national economic trends, consumer confidence, interest rates and such but looking at the market from a macro perspective enhances ones abilities to gauge demand, values and consequently absorption. Allen has, in instances, called appraisals to the dollar.
Allen is a member of Preservation Worcester having sat on the Board of Directors for many years, and Endangered Structures committee. Allen feels that this is a great way to give back to the city he loves:
I appreciate many different types of architecture and the interesting design aspects that can be found in both older homes and new construction. There is a neat house for every person; be it modern, antique or mixed style. I love to help people discover the home that just ‘fits.’ I have extensive resources on-hand for any situation. I love connecting people with that special house and being a long-lasting partner in your home.
As Manager for the Worcester Office I search for Realtor’s that are dynamic, talented, and honest; people that have a true passion for serving their clients and building lifelong relationships. ERA Key Realty offers a multitude of benefits: hands-on support in each office, local ownership, advanced training, technology, comprehensive marketing, as well as competitive commission splits and incentives.
ERA’s powerful tools will allow both new-licensees and seasoned agents to exceed their own expectations in Real Estate. “I suppose the best part of my job is really split between two spheres; training new agents and helping mid-level producers take it to the next level. Helping an agent with business in the range of 16-20 units per year work smarter, not harder. Engaging the right technology and tools takes a lot off their plate and helps them get back to the basics growing their business.”
This was a very difficult sale on many levels. Allen never lost patience with it and stayed on top of the situation throughout. In fact, if it weren’t for him we most likely would have given up, and also would not have moved to Worcester at all. It was his area knowledge that convinced us to move here and we are now very happy with the decision. In particular his honesty and attentiveness to our needs and requests were so outstanding that it was the primary imputus we bought a house in the first place!
We are incredibly fortunate to have encountered an individual as worthy of praise as Allen Greenman. He approaches his job with professionalism and is extremely personable. Soft spoken and approachable, he explains the real estate process in a clear, concise manner. His knowledge of the mechanics of how both new and old homes are constructed, familiarity with the area and wide circle of contacts makes the buying and selling process flow as smoothly as possibly. Recently, we experienced quite challenging negotiations and Allen was able to smooth things over and get us the price we need both to sell our home and to purchase another. Within 2 months. His performance was beyond our expectations and we would recommend him, without reservation, to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home in Worcester County.
As first time home buyers we had special needs in finding a home, as in we didn’t have a clue what we were doing. Allen was fantastic in answering our questions, even texts very late in the evenings too! Our schedules with full time jobs made things interesting when looking at homes. Allen always made sure that we had the times we requested and made it happen.
We ended up finding the perfect home in about 8 months of looking, and it was a for sale by owner…Allen walked us through the entire process and got the price we were willing to pay! I cannot imagine having anyone else help us through this important time in our lives. Choose Allen Greenman for your real estate needs and you will not be disappointed.
Words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with Allen Greenman. I would highly recommend him to everyone. We are first time buyers and were guided the whole way through this crazy process with such care and professionalism. Allen understood the importance of getting us our first house and followed up on ALL angles possible to ensure that we would be able to attain our new home. He not only got us our dream home, but he made the process seem like a piece of cake. He kept us informed, educated us on the process, and continues to follow up with us. I can’t thank Allen enough.
Allen was wonderful during the entire process! As a first time home buyer, I was expecting the process to be stressful but Allen walked me through every step and explained everything to me. He was prompt in replying to emails and always answered his phone. Allen truly knows this business and you can tell how much he enjoys it. The amount of research and information he provided was extremely helpful. Most importantly, I felt like Allen really had my best interest at heart and it wasn’t about the money to him. Allen was a pleasure to meet with and he was professional in every manner. Even after the transaction, he stayed in touch to see how I was doing and if I needed anything else.
From the beginning, Allen Greenman has been a pleasure to work with. He has been prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. We were very lucky to find him to be our real estate agent. We will absolutely be referring him to anyone we know in the area who is in need of a real estate transaction!
