Coldwell Banker Del Monte Realty, the leading provider of real estate services on the Monterey Peninsula, announced today that renowned Carmel Realtor Tim Allen once again ranked as the company’s number one agent on the Peninsula and one of the top agents in the United States.

One of Carmel’s most prominent luxury real estate professionals, Allen was involved in more than $121 million in real estate sales last year. That ranked as the highest dollar volume for a Coldwell Banker agent in the Monterey area, as well as in Northern California, outpacing more than 3,600 agents in the region.

In addition, Allen finished third nationally and worldwide, surpassing more than 87,000 Coldwell Banker sales associates in 49 countries.

A 25-plus year veteran Realtor with Coldwell Banker’s Carmel-by-the-Sea/Junipero office, Allen has consistently ranked in the top 10 of agents in the U.S. each year for Coldwell Banker. Throughout his career, he has been responsible for nearly 1,000 home sales valued at more than $2 billion.

Rita Lewis, vice president and manager of Coldwell Banker on the Monterey Peninsula, said few if any agents can match Allen when it comes to local market knowledge, professional expertise and customer service.

“Tim is the ultimate professional,” she said. “He really has an incredible level of knowledge and expertise when it comes to the luxury real estate and, having grown up in this area, no one knows the local communities better than Tim. We’re very fortunate to have him on our team at Coldwell Banker.”

Allen was recognized for his accomplishments during a company ceremony last month at the Coldwell Banker Generation Blue Experience in New Orleans.

From quaint Carmel cottages to beachfront estates and homes, Allen has an intimate knowledge of all the various Carmel neighborhoods – from Carmel Village to The Point, Carmel Woods to the Meadows.

Raised in Pebble Beach, Allen attended Robert Louis Stevenson School and graduated from U.C. Santa Barbara in 1984 with degree in Business Economics. He played varsity lacrosse at prep school and in college. Allen is a member of Stillwater Yacht Club and the Beach & Tennis Club in Pebble Beach. He and his wife, Lynn, have two sons and a daughter, and live in Carmel by the Sea.

Coldwell Banker Del Monte Realty’s Carmel-by-the-Sea/Junipero office is located at Junipero near Fifth. Allen can be reached directly by calling 831.622.4622 or by e-mail at
