Allen Walsh is a Colorado Native and proud of it. Raised on the Western Slope in the small farm town of Loma, CO, just west of Grand Junction. Growing up on five acres, Allen had the experience of raising a variety of farm animals. His rural upbringing taught him the value of hard work and honesty and inspired him towards entrepreneurship.
Honesty and transparency were drilled into Allen’s head from a young age. “You either do something or you don’t,” were the words used by Allen’s father when he taught Allen that life is really no more complicated than this. “We have a choice in everything we do,” is the quote Allen has taken to heart throughout his adult life. It has allowed him to accomplish his goals of having a loving family, a college degree, and working for himself.
Wanting to work for himself led Allen into Real Estate. After graduating from Regis University, Allen pursued a career in real estate. He wanted to be able to help people’s dreams come true of owning that perfect house. By making his clients priorities his own priorities, it has allowed each and every one of his clients to enjoy buying and selling real estate.
Allen wanted to learn the business quickly, so he could create a great client experience. This led him to join a team with the Luxury Division at the Keller Williams DTC office. Allen was hired as a buyer’s agent and learned the business of Real Estate by doing everything that was asked of him. Soon after being hired he was handling all buyers transactions and making clients happy.
Allen learned while being a buyer’s agent that the most important thing in Real Estate is to be transparent and be yourself. Clients respect this and they want to know that they can trust the agent that they are working with. Since Allen went out on his own and joined Colorado Home Realty, he has built a referral-based business because his clients trust and enjoy working with him.
Allen, his wife Ashlee, his son Zuriah, his daughter Mackenzie, and son Henry enjoy many of the things that living in Colorado offers. Allen and Ashlee love taking in Bronco games. The whole family, besides Baby Henry, enjoys skiing and has season passes to Keystone and A-Basin. Everyone in the family is learning to golf. Every year the Walshs plan a big camp trip at Chatfield reservoir and have a Cornhole and Bucketball tournament. Living in Roxborough, Allen and his family enjoy hiking Waterton Canyon and Roxborough State Park. Allen enjoys taking his Chocolate Labrador, Bronco, hunting.
