Larry Allen is a native Dallasite and embodies the history, heritage and future of Dallas. He grew up near Lakewood Country Club and remembers picking up golf balls from his grandmother’s backyard. However, in addition to living in Lakewood and its surrounding areas, Larry has been a part of the city’s growth in Uptown, Preston Hollow and in the White Rock Lake areas. As a result, Larry has both the acuity to analyze market trends and the personal experience to offer a genuine understanding of Dallas’ unique areas - down to specific blocks where he is known by many of the neighbors.
To say that Larry has a passion and understanding of the city’s real estate market is an understatement. His intimate knowledge of the neighborhoods, coupled with his professional accomplishments as a Realtor, exceed most clients’ expectations. Larry is more than a Realtor. Not only does he meet the high standards of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, he is also a compassionate partner who ensures that all of his clients receive the best in luxury and quality service.
Larry’s service-oriented spirit and proven negotiation ability are evident as he actively focuses on relationship building by serving each client with superior, detailed service. As a result, his business is built on referrals from those who appreciate his remarkable devotion. Larry is happy to furnish a list of current and past clients who can testify to their experience, working and maintained relations with Larry.
In addition to earning a Bachelor’s of Arts from Southern Methodist University, Larry holds Master’s and Ph.D. degrees from Vanderbilt University. Also, he completed post-doctoral studies at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass., and worked at one of the largest German banks and studied in Europe. Incidentally, he speaks German fluently and is also proficient in Spanish. He has helped international clients, as well as many empty nesters who are downsizing, seniors who are transitioning, and first time homebuyers.
A bit of personal information about Larry’s family: He and his supportive wife, Priscilla, have been married for 39 years. Priscilla grew up in East Dallas. Her father was in the first graduating class of Woodrow Wilson High School, and her parents were, in fact, married at Dr. W.A. Criswell’s home on Swiss Avenue. Priscilla is a retired public school administrator who currently works as a national reading consultant, and serves as Director of Lake Highlands Literacy Center. Larry and Priscilla have two wonderful and successful children-a daughter who is also a SMU graduate and currently a medical student, and a son who’s an executive for an international wholesale company in the Houston area. And the light of Larry and Priscilla’s lives are their grandchildren, Ava and Luke. Larry and his wife are members of Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church, as well as several non-profit organizations.
