Mike James

President of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Tim is without a doubt one of the most talented and respected luxury real estate professionals in the industry. Year after year, he ranks among the top agents - not just on the Monterey Peninsula, but around the world. We’re very fortunate to have him on the Coldwell Banker team.

You guys are light years ahead of our ex-realtors.

Thank you for being so helpful in selling our house in these very challenging times. You certainly lived up to your reputation…

Campbell Cowan

You're awesome and your team is the best, I have always known this but now I know it first hand, thank you… I'll be using you to help sell my moms house when the time comes…

Happy Client

Tim is an amazing Carmel expert—he knows everyone and every property. He has amazing resources, and will get the deal done! Sometimes, by choosing a well-known agent, one might worry about responsiveness. As busy as Tim is, it’s miraculous he’s always available when we need him. And, the MOST amazing thing is, he has an INCREDIBLE team. From customer facing folks like Jonathan Balog -- who’s a great agent and gentleman -- to his backoffice transaction team, they are flawless, hardworking, and professional. You can’t go wrong by choosing Tim and team.

Heidi and Steve Seely

We were so impressed with Tim Allen’s help, guidance, advice and professionalism in handling the sale of 24205 San Pedro Lane. His entire team was a delight to work with. We have raved to our friends about our positive Tim Allen / Coldwell Banker experience. We thank you.

Jerry Anderson

Although letting go of my house has not been an easy thing for me, you made the process so smooth and simple that I have been able to focus on the personal and emotional aspects of moving. What a gift! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Happy Client

I have worked on dozens of transactions with Tim over the last 30+ years, both on my own properties and on behalf of my clients. When clients ask me for the name of an agent on the Monterey Peninsula, Tim is the only agent whom I recommend. Tim is the only agent I would ever use to list my personal residence. He is the best agent I have ever encountered in almost 40 years of real estate practice. Our most recent transaction together took place in 2015, when Tim orchestrated a multiple offer situation into an above-asking price sale of my personal residence.

Stacia and Tod Sambar

"Congratulations and a big Thank You! to everyone on your end too, Brenna! We really appreciated your time, knowledge, positive attitude, helpful advice, and responsiveness."

Todd Porteous

Manager for Coldwell Banker Monterey Peninsula

Tim is the ultimate professional who is held in high regard by colleagues, competitors and clients alike. He has an incredible amount of knowledge about the Carmel area and marketing luxury properties, but beyond that, he has a true passion for delivering incredible client service. That’s why he’s in such demand from the most discerning clients.

Lee Hicks

You did it! Your negotiation skills, understanding of the market and fantastic team made this happen very efficiently. I know a lot of skill and hard work goes into all that precedes a sale..the marketing, showings, inquiries, etc. all part of the process that eventually produces a sale. All of the process did not go unnoticed or unappreciated. Thank you very much for your wonderful input and terrific efficiency. You are the best!

Happy Client

Tim is extremely knowledgeable and an outstanding negotiator, he also wrote a very professional letter on our behalf as to why we were valuing the property the way we were. We were new clients as he had been referred to us by a close friend. Both my husband and I thought Tim was exceptional and “the best, & most thorough“ realtor we have ever worked with and we have bought and sold 9 homes over the past years. If we move again there is no question that we would choose to work with Tim once again.

Douglas Rosenberg

I received confirmation of the closing. Thank you very much for what has to be the smoothest deal I've ever done and I've done a lot in my life. Please convey to Sandi and Bob that we are thrilled to have our family's home in their family's hands. They seem to really love the house and Carmel and we couldn't be happier and wish them many years of happiness there. Thanks again.

David Keaton

Tim recently managed the sale of my home in Carmel Valley. Tim and his outstanding team orchestrated the whole process with the highest level of professionalism. Good communication is a vital part of the real estate process, and it is a priority for the Allen team. Given the current economic climate, I was especially interested in a strong marketing plan. Tim and his team maintained a high commitment to excellent marketing and sales from start to finish. They get the job done! I would give Tim and his team my highest recommendation.

Happy Client

We met Tim when we rented his SeaStone house in Carmel-by-the-Sea. I was curious about the history of the house (built in the 1920’s) and he was happy to provide me with lots of wonderful facts and stories not only about the house, but also about the area. Shortly after, my husband and I reached out to Tim and his team about looking at a home to purchase in either Carmel-by-the-Sea, or Pebble Beach. I was very impressed with the knowledge of not just the area, but also of construction and his property management. We have worked with Tim and his team going on 6 years and he is truly the “Best of the Best” with Professionalism, Knowledge, and Property Management. If you’re looking to buy, sell, or rent a home, I would give him my highest recommendation.


With many decades of combined knowledge of the Monterey Peninsula, the Tim Allen Properties team looks forward to providing you with a real estate experience that is second to none.
