Allen Bell, a seventh-generation Tylerite, never considered working anywhere but Tyler, Texas. He jumped into the real estate business in 1979 and has never looked back. His first task was to finish leasing the office building known as First Place. Today, 37 years later, he still manages that same building as his flagship property in his office building management business. "I guess you could say I am dedicated to the building and its tenants." Allen loves the process of matching people and real estate together. In addition to leasing office space, he has handled hundreds of commercial transactions over the years representing sellers and buyers, landlords and tenants.
Allen started his real estate career in 1979 after attending the University of Texas in Austin. In addition to his devoted career, he has been very community involved. He has served many capacities with City of Tyler, Heart of Tyler Main Street, University of Texas at Tyler, Texas Rose Festival, Willow Brook Country Club and ETMC Foundation, to name a few. Allen is currently a member of the National Association of Realtors, Texas Association of Realtors and the Greater Tyler Association of REALTORS®.
