Hi, I’m Steve Allen, the Principal and Owner of Allen Property. Originally from Burrum Heads, I grew up on a small acreage property at Nikenbah in Hervey Bay.
A few years after leaving high school, I started as a Real Estate Salesperson in 2002, right here in Hervey Bay and spent 5 years listing and selling property - from $30,000 blocks of land to a $2.8M development site, contributing to hundreds of property sales in this local area.
An opportunity arose and I spent nearly 2 ½ years living in the Turks and Caicos Islands in the Caribbean, selling Real Estate for Coldwell Banker TCI. I learnt an enormous amount during this time, both professionally and personally.
Returning home in 2009, I spent a few years as owner of a small steel building business before my return to real estate sales in 2013 – and have spent the past 5 years assisting property Sellers and Buyers predominantly in my local suburb of Toogoom, and also other suburbs in the Hervey Bay area.
I pride myself on providing an experienced and personalised service to each and every client. For information on real estate, or nearly anything Fraser Coast.
Originally from the UK, I have a lifetime of experience in Sales, originally in the motor industry and more recently in real estate - both industries have always been a strong passion of mine.
I moved to Australia around 10 years ago and originally settled at the Gold Coast. It wasn’t long before I wanted a change of pace and found Hervey Bay through a friend, and decided to make the move to the area for the lifestyle and climate. For the past 6 years I have been actively listing and selling property in Toogoom, and I am proud to live in this wonderful suburb.
If I haven’t met you yet, we no doubt will soon! I have made countless professional and personal friendships with people in the area, I always endeavour to assist with all of your local and property needs. I am looking forward to the next phase of my life with Allen Property, we are a full service agency and I am well equipped to handle any enquiry you may have regarding the area.
Originally from Zimbabwe and after growing up there until age 16, my family made the decision to move to New Zealand. My husband and I moved to Australia in 2010 where we travelled around before moving to Toogoom with our two children and have since settled in Dundowran Beach.
I have worked in a variety of industries but have found my passion in Real Estate. Spending the last twelve months learning and loving the Holiday Management aspect of Real Estate, I am positive that my knowledge of the industry will only grow with the amazing mentoring team I am surrounded with at Allen Property.
Hi, my name is Koley Semgreen, local resident of Toogoom, and Agency / Property Investment Manager at Allen Property Hervey Bay.
Having moved to Toogoom in 2014 with my husband and 2 boys from the Sunshine Coast Hinterland we were looking for a change of pace and are happy to say we haven’t looked back, proudly calling Toogoom our home.
Having worked within Real Estate since 2001 and in Toogoom for the past 3+ years, I have a great grasp and understanding of the local climate.
I am passionate about Property Management and Real Estate in general and having been in the industry for the past 17 years, I have achieved a broad understanding of all aspects of the game, always keeping up to date with the constantly changing Residential Tenancy Act and applying best practice systems and procedures I constantly strive to ensure our clients receive the best possible returns on their valuable assets.
Hi, my name is Cat Bensein and I am so pleased to be the newest member of the team at Allen Property.
I have been working in Real Estate for almost twenty years, starting with a TAFE based traineeship though Hervey Bay Senior College, which sparked my passion for the industry.
I have been involved in managing Toogoom properties specifically for the past 9 years, holding my most recent position for almost 6 years. I have managed properties in Hervey Bay for twice as long.
Due to advancements in my husband’s career we relocated with our two daughters Georgia and Lulu, to Brisbane where I have worked alongside Koley Semgreen remotely for the last three years.
While Koley is on the road inspecting and marketing properties, I am available in the background keeping on top of the Trust Accounting, day to day administration and supporting Koley on all other aspects of managing Investment Properties.
I am absolutely thrilled to have been given the opportunity to join the “A-Team” at Allen Property and to be back with a group of people I have enjoyed working with for so many years.
