CHRIS S. ALLEN
bio image
Chris Allen, founder and owner of The Allen Group, a SAGE Realty Partner, originally got his start in real estate in the late 90’s as investor/owner of the company in which his father practiced real estate, Florida IntraCoastal Realty. In 2002, Chris started his real estate career in Oklahoma and grew his real estate business to become the #1 Realtor in Sales Volume for Re/Max in the extended OKC Metro and #2 in Volume for Re/Max for the entire State of Oklahoma. In 2011, he started his own independent brokerage company, The Allen Group (TAG). In 2016, Chris along with his cousin, Rob Allen, created SAGE Realty Partners, a brokerage targeting excellent Realtors and their teams.

Over the years, The Allen Group began to invest in rentals and slowly got into property management, first for personally owned properties and then for clients and friends investing in real estate to the company it is today, LEASE405, a fully operational property management company serving the greater Oklahoma City metro for all rental needs.

A native to Oklahoma, Chris graduated from Casady High School in Oklahoma City and then went on to graduate from the United States Air Force Academy. He has lived on both coasts and traveled all over the world flying first for the Air Force and later for Delta Airlines. After 9/11 he was forced to retire early from flying and started his real estate career. His industry knowledge lends well to investment advice within the real estate market. Chris’ forte is helping clients make profitable decisions with their real estate portfolios and offering sound solutions for property owners and renters alike.
