Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Oklahoma City, OK.

Last spring, my wife received a job offer in Oklahoma City. We were moving to Oklahoma from another state, and we had about three weeks to find a place to live before her position started. Originally, we were planning to rent a house. However, just prior to flying out to find a rental, the Moore tornado tragedy took place. Understandably, the demand for rentals quickly reduced the inventory of rentals in the area and drove rental prices up. As a result, a couple days before flying out, we made the decision to buy a house. Since we didn't know the Oklahoma City area or the local market, we knew we needed a great agent to help guide us to listings that fit our preferences.

After seeing the reviews of The Allen Group online, I contacted Chris Allen to see if he might be available to show us some listings over the next few days. He agreed and within a couple hours of getting some info on our preferences, he was sending us listings to check out online. Over the next day, he was able to craft a solid list of options for us to check out based on our feedback. He and his team worked quickly over the weekend to schedule viewings at the homes, and he worked to rearrange his busy schedule to give us an introductory tour the OKC area. Understandably, he had a couple appointments he wasn't able to reschedule, but he arranged for Anya from The Allen Group to continue showing us properties during those times. Like Chris, we found Anya to be incredibly friendly, knowledgable, and eager to help with our last-minute search.

By the end of the second day, we had found a great house in a wonderful community near my wife's work. We placed the offer prior to flying out, and Chris continued to work hard to oversee the inspection, negotiations, and document needs in preparation for the quick closing. He did an excellent job negotiating the price and concessions with the seller, and we successfully closed on time.

Overall, we couldn't have asked for more from Chris and his team at The Allen Group! Even with the last minute notice of our trip out, the three day window to find a house, and our quick closing needs, he made it his goal to make sure we got the perfect place at a great price. We would recommend Chris and The Allen Group to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Edmond, OK.

The Allen Group was very easy to work with and I would definitely use them again. I have already recommended them to other family members. They were very good at marketing and knowledgable about selling and buying homes. They answered questions promptly. They made closing go seamlessly as well. We didn't want to initially list with a realtor but after working with TAG we will rethink that in the future. It made the experience less stressful and they took a load of work of our backs. They also are good staging your home and making it look ready to sell. They provided reports and information on showings and marketing.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $75K in Oklahoma City, OK.

I worked with Anya Taschereau at The Allen Group for almost a year to find the perfect home. She provided valuable expertise in historic homes, structural issues, comps and pricing, remodeling and was always prompt in her responsiveness to questions or requests. Her network of connections helped me find the best mortgage rate and excellent contractors that I would use again and have already recommended to friends. She represented me well in negotiations and had a contract secured within 24 hours of the house coming on the market. I will use Anya as my Realtor in the future and refer everyone I know to her.

Bought a home in 2012.

Chris and his team at TAG are professional, friendly, and experts of the greater Oklahoma City area. They listen to what you are looking for, and work tirelessly to find the right home for you at the RIGHT price. We recommend him to everyone we know!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Oklahoma City, OK.

We were in the market for an investment property in our area, and had to decide between two realtors. We decided to use The Allen Group based upon their reputation, and work they had done with some of our friends. It was important to us to have a realtor who was able to work around our busy work (daytime) schedule and accomodate those times where we could look at selected properties. Not only was the Allen Group responsive, but they selected the right properties to look at. Our time was valued. We felt listened to and important as thier clients. In a short amount of time, we found the right property, negotiations were fair and completed in a timely manner. We will certainly use Chris Allen and the Allen Group for any future purchases, and we will encourage our friends to do so as well.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Edmond, OK.

Chris Allen and The Allen Group made buying and selling a house simultaneously a nearly painless process. Chris made the effort to understand my needs and expectations, which resulted in selling my house within 2 days of listing and finding a new house I now feel comfortable in. I would definitely use them again.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Oklahoma City, OK 73012

My only contact with the Allen Grp. consisted of providing them my email address so I could view their listings on their web site. Driving past some of the houses on their web site, most of them didn't have Allen Group signage. It gave me the impression that the listings were old and the houses had already been sold. I still receive their emails.

Lynn, we apologize for any difficulty that you may have encountered in using our website. Our website features an "IDX Solution" which allows one to search current listings on the MLS that are not held by us which may have contributed to this confusion. Our Featured Listings are our listings, some of which have been sold but are marked as such. If there is any way we may be of further assistance or if you would like to be set up on a customized home search with only active listings, we would be more than glad to do so. Again, we apologize for any uncertainties or confusion and wish you happy house hunting! Feel free to give us a call at 405-509-9350! -The Allen Group

Bought a home in 2011.

My Husband and I worked with the Allen Group to buy not only our first home but our first home in Oklahoma. A friend of ours referred him to us after we moved here. Chris, Anya, and Amanda are amazing people to work with. Chris took a lot of time to show us tons of areas outside the metro area because we were looking for a home with some space. He took the time to learn exactly what we wanted and didn't waste our time with listings that didn't meet our specifications. We got the perfect home for us and due to his excellent negotiation skills we were precisely on budget. It is obvious that Chris really cares about his clients and not only just making sales. He genuinely wants his clients to be happy and he definitely went above and beyond. He even worked through the weekend for us due to a delayed and very frusterating closing. Chris also referred us to an amazing mortgage broker who not only gave us a great mortgage but also tremendous service to get us closed on the house. There is no way I would buy or sell a home without The Allen Group. They really are the best.
