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.”
Allen was very helpful with my search for a home in the Worcester market. He is very knowledgeable are the neighborhoods, and the current inventory. I would highly recommend him!
Allen was a great help in selling our house. He helped us feel confident with our starting and selling price. He performed so many open houses for us and always relayed the good and bad feedback for us immediately so we could get a better understanding of what we needed to do to sell. He also advertised our home as much as possible. Once the negotiations began, he was very quick to relay the message between the seller and buyer and made everything as simple as possible. He even met us one night while we were out to dinner with family so we could sign papers! We highly recommend Allen Greenman to be your realtor to sell or buy, as he is a genuinely kind person and will be sure to keep your true interests at heart.
It was a pleasure working with Allen. He helped my wife and I find a wonderful home that we love; and steered us away from what could turn into expensive mistakes. Allen understands homes and the market; he also has an eye for items that could turn into problems later.
One thing that I appreciated is his practicality. We stood in the back yard of a home that I loved, and he pointed out all the major repairs that it would need soon. He also understands old homes, and was able to point out structural problems that are too risky to repair.
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.
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.
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!
