Allan has been serving the Sonoma real estate market since 2018, after an impressive and diverse background in the civil engineering and publishing worlds. Previously, Allan was Vice President for Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers in Mundelein, IL. During that ten years, he was responsible for managing staff, contract administration, review of financial performance, and all marketing efforts including advertising copy for website/email/print, convention sales, and royalties setup.
Previous to his publishing experience, Allan held a twenty year career as a civil engineer and project manager. The majority of his work focused on transportation-related projects, such as highways, roadways, railroad, bike paths, parking lots, site development and utility work. As project manager, the scope of his work included client meetings, negotiation, managing budgets and schedules, overseeing design work, quality control, and coordinating with permitting agencies for environmental permits.
Allan’s focus is residential real estate in Santa Rosa and the Sonoma Valley, and continuing to build and maintain relationships through communication, trust and respect — which he believes are key elements to both relationships and good business.
Allan is on the steering committee of the Church of the Incarnation’s Sunday Open Table, providing breakfast for Santa Rosa’s hungry people, and for Oakmont Volunteer Helpers providing rides for seniors to doctor appointments.
He enjoys spending time with family, traveling, cooking, hiking, reading, volunteering, and wine tasting, and the bounty that Sonoma County has to offer.
