More About Me

Who is Matt Allen?

First I would like to state that I made the decision to enter into a career of Real Estate after successful career as a product manager because I love the real estate industry and working with people. As a product manager my greatest strength was I had to listen to my customers needs. This translated into a product idea and eventually a successful product. The key was listening. I never assume I know what people want. I'm someone who understands who my customers are and I'm not in the business to get a quick sale. I'm looking to make you a client for life. In summary, everything I do as a Real Estate agent is to work hard and satisfy your needs.

What is my background?

I was born in Spokane and spent my childhood here until age 9, then my family moved to Sandpoint, Idaho. After attending high school in Sandpoint I then studied and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in business from the University of Idaho. After college I worked for a major manufacturer of barcode equipment based in the Seattle area as a product manager. I worked there for 18 years and traveled the world. The result of the travel made me realize that there is no better place to live than the Inland Northwest so I decided to come back and live in the area where my roots are from. I can tell you that I'm not leaving. I love Spokane! Let me show you my home town!

What are my passions?

I have always had a passion for endurance sports. I regularly participate in running, biking and triathlon events. Trail running in the Northwest is hard to beat! I also have a passion for real estate and building. I am a self taught construction guy having personally completed a major addition on one of my homes, a major remodel on another and built my own cabin at Priest Lake, Idaho. I call it a labor of love but my family calls it work. Through this process I have really learned a lot about construction and what quality workmanship is. This passion led me to my career in Real Estate.

Why work with me?

My only agenda is your agenda! I'm patient, passionate about what I do and will work hard to earn your respect and satisfaction. I have a personal background in construction that is valuable in helping you find a home or helping you get your home prepped to be sold. I look forward to meeting you. Cheers!
