    I have been buying and selling Manhattan Beach real estate with Kurt Allen since 1994. My entire family as interacted with Kurt on real estate transactions. Kurt has a great personality and gives you the straight scoop on any property you investigate. He has been involved in the Manhattan Beach real estate market all his life, as he grew up here. He can sell Manhattan Beach qualities better than anybody in town. So if you are a seller, he is your guy. Kurt keeps up with the market trends on financing and construction costs. He has been a real estate developer himself, so he knows a lot about current replacement costs as well as purchase prices. He knows what features help sell a home and what improvements need to be made to make a quick sale. He know nearly all of the real estate agents who represent sellers. If you are a buyer, these agents are truthful with Kurt as to what is possible on a deal so that you do not overpay. Through his hard work and dedication to service, Kurt has earned the loyalty of my entire family. I highly recommend Kurt to buyers, sellers and investors alike."

    Kurt sold our family home of 15 years, located in Palos Verdes Estates and worked with us to purchase our new home in Rolling Hills Estates. Due to Kurt’s accurate pricing recommendation, our home sold immediately and with 3 offers. All offers were over list so that was extremely welcome news. Kurt also held open houses to help advertise and showcase our home. Kurt was also instrumental in helping us assess what we needed to do to our home before we listed it to make it more desirable to buyers. All transactions went smoothly and that made the whole process very easy to manage. Kurt was very knowledgeable about activity in our area as well as many others. We would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

    For more than a decade our family has worked with Kurt Allen for our real estate needs, including two home sales and two purchases in the Palos Verdes area. Kurt’s integrity, tenacity, understanding of the marketplace, as well as his genuine care for his clients’ best interest are second to none. While buying and selling real estate can be a complicated and nerve wracking experience, Kurt always keeps a cool head. He goes the extra mile to explain every step of the process and he never takes short cuts. While there were times he could have put his self-interest ahead of ours, and had the opportunity to make more money, he didn’t. Our family feels fortunate to have found Kurt, and would highly recommend him to both buyers and sellers.

    We felt very comfortable selecting Kurt Allen to sell our house. First and foremost Kurt is honest and knowledgeable. He always has his client's best interest at heart and has many years of Real Estates experience. He is also a long time South Bay resident and really understands the market. Kurt had our home in escrow within 2 days of listing it on the MLS at our asking price! Escrow went very smoothly. If something needed to be repaired Kurt was able to recommend people to do the repairs at reasonable prices. He was very hands on and made sure that everything got done on time. Kurt is very personable and really works to develop a relationship with his clients. It's not just another business deal to him - the relationship with his clients is very important to him. He really strives to make sure his clients are happy with selling or buying their property. We would highly recommend Kurt to represent you as a buyer or seller of real estate. He will find what you are looking for and really work hard to make it all happen!

    Dan and I will always be a fan of Kurt Allen. He is a terrific real estate agent who will go the extra mile for his clients. He found us the perfect property on Largavista which is amazing because Largavista and Gavilan were the ONLY two streets we were interested in! Kurt is an extremely honest and trustworthy professional.

    Working with Kurt Allen and his team was an incredible experience from start to finish. I have never known a more hardworking broker in my life. The house was sold as part of an estate, so there were additional challenges to the sale. Kurt handled every challenge with total professionalism and kept the family updated all along with way! I have shared our experiences with Kurt and his team with friends and family and people are seriously in shock when they hear all of the "extra mile" responsibilities Kurt took on to assure the sale of our family home went seamlessly. I will never be able to thank him enough!

    Kurt is a true professional and would recommend him to family and friends due to his deep knowledge in real estate transactions, attention to detail, being responsive, and the feeling you get that he has your best interest in mind at all times. Kurt represented us when we purchased some units in Long Beach and could not be happier with the outcome. We have complete confidence in Kurt and will work with him again.

    Scott B

    I own rental property and called upon Kurt for advice dealing with a long standing problem I was having. While I was not selling, he still got back to me right away and kept calling until we connected; even though it was raining and he was in the middle of a move himself! I benefited greatly from his advice and knowledge of the south bay real estate market. And will definitely recommend him to friends... that is how I knew to contact him in the first place--a neighbor in PVE gave me his number. Thanks Kurt - will definitely call you when ready to sell.

    Working with Kurt Allen was a pleasure. He proved to be a professional and calming voice in the uncertainty and anxiety that is often associated with buying and selling a house. He guided us with self-assuredness, and we were in excellent hands throughout the entire process. We wholeheartedly recommend his services for all types of buyers and sellers, both first-time and seasoned.

    Tate Y

    Kurt is amazing! He helped us purchase two homes and sell one in the South Bay. With Kurt as our agent, each transaction went smoothly and we were very happy with the results. His knowledge, guidance, responsiveness and personality are unmatched in this market and we have no hesitation recommending him to our friends.

    Kelley B

    We appreciate Kurt Allen for helping us prepare our condo for a quick and above asking price sale as well as helping us to find and buy our next family home. His experience ensured the success of the marketing phase and sale process. Kurt coached us to see the amazing potential in our new house that we didn’t initially see. His initiative to proceed with extra inspections during escrow allowed us to request and receive a significant reduction to the purchase price. Most importantly Kurt is caring and personable...and our children love him! We highly recommend him and the whole team.

    Tommy O

    We were thoroughly impressed with Kurt Allen’s knowledge of the real estate market, as well as the pros and cons of all neighborhoods where we were looking to buy a house. Kurt helped us buy our new home, but he also sold our previous home within 48 hours. He made the entire process easy and even fun. Before we moved in to our new home, Kurt brought to us a vast network of service professionals who responded quickly and completed requests promptly with an excellent quality of work. Kurt is a man of high integrity and likable personality. He is attentive and intuitive, discrete and knowledgeable, and a true professional. We recommend him to anyone without any reservations whatsoever.

    We have had the pleasure of working with Kurt for over 10 years, and have known him for over 15 years. Kurt has help us with several successful transactions, including a home sale, a home buy, and assisting with finding renters for two of our properties. Throughout each process, Kurt's professionalism and attention to detail has resulted in a smooth and successful outcome. Kurt's experience is invaluable--he understands the nuances of the market, and knows what needs to get done to satisfy both parties. Of course, when the situation is not right for the client, he will not hesitate to voice his view. We have had several instances of this, and have been grateful for his advice. We look forward to working with Kurt in the future.
