Willis Allen Real Estate has been around since 1914 – as long as the U.S. Naval Base, Spreckels Theater, San Diego Zoo, Grand Colonial Hotel, and even electricity in La Jolla. For 100 years Willis Allen Real Estate has grown with San Diego and has been intimately involved in the building, beautifying and conservation of the city’s finest communities.
For example, our company’s namesake, Willis M. Allen, helped broker the land that we now know as Clairemont. Allen Field, home of the La Jolla Youth Soccer League, was given to La Jolla through the Willis Allen Family Largesse. Willis Allen agents helped found the La Jolla Real Estate Brokers’ Association (REBA). Today, our Realtors – who are simply the best in the business – continue to carry on this commitment to community by volunteering their time and talents to worthy causes across San Diego County.
With Willis Allen Real Estate, clients get the best of both worlds – local roots and global reach. Being a fiercely independent brokerage allows us to focus our full attention on San Diego. Meanwhile, our exclusive affiliation with groups such as Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and Luxury Portfolio International gives our clients exposure to the international marketplace.
The success of Willis Allen Real Estate hinges not only on our history and hyper-local sensibility, but also on our pioneering marketing program. We were one of the first San Diego real estate companies to have a website and to “go global” with our marketing and advertising. We continue to innovate with a staff dedicated to the latest real estate tools for the Internet and social media.
While many things have changed since we sold our first home back in 1914, Willis Allen Real Estate’s foundation has stood the test of time. Independent and family-owned – with only three owners in the last 100 years – Willis Allen Real Estate has built a respected reputation for being trustworthy, knowledgeable, professional and successful. It’s a winning formula that San Diego residents have come to expect from us. It’s worked so well for so long, we don’t see any reason to change things now!
Willis Allen has been the premier real estate firm in San Diego for 100 years. During this time Willis Allen has become synonymous with “luxury.” We aren’t just the leading real estate company in America’s Finest City; we are one of the best businesses in San Diego, period.
