Allen has been a familiar face in the Lake Oswego community since 1974 when he and his wife, Sherry moved down to the community from Bellevue, WA, with 2 children, Cari and Sean. He has been in the Portland commercial real estate scene for over 30 years and is currently with the Capacity Commercial Group specializing in industrial and investment projects. He has been a Director of the Lake Grove Fire Department since 2007 and enthusiastically continues to provide services in that capacity to his community. He is also a CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) member through the Lake Oswego Fire Department. When he is not in the office, you will find him in his garden or flying commercially on weekends towing gliders for the local soaring club at North Plains on Hwy 26.
