Brad Allen

Being raised in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I grew up very accustomed to the hustle and bustle of the touristy town. With my first job washing dishes at a local restaurant, I developed a very powerful work ethic and learned just how well effort and hard work can pay off, when combined with customer service.

I pursued my undergraduate degree at the University of South Carolina, during which I fell in love with Columbia and decided to settle in and grow some roots. Upon graduating, I was determined to create my own path in life, no matter what that was. It was then, that I discovered just how well my talents in marketing and problem solving blended with the real estate industry.

After becoming a Realtor®, I quickly teamed up with my now partner, Mary Lane Sloan, to form The ART of Real Estate with the idea that one agent cannot be productive in real estate and give the level of service that the client deserves. Out of the formation of this idea, paired with hard work and ingenuity, we began to expand our team, keeping in mind that quality must equal quantity.

Through the development of this team, I became the Broker-in-Charge when Mary Lane and myself decided to take our team’s systems, values, beliefs and brand to create The ART of Real Estate brokerage. By building on our core values of being a client-centered team, we have an extensive core staff, that includes a Listing Coordinator, Closing Coordinator, Client Care Coordinator, Videographer, Photographer and a Lead Coordinator, that helps our six agents maintain the customer service our clients deserve while selling a high volume of homes (314 in 2015 for $72 million in volume).

Maybe it was my years of working in customer service combined with my drive to always learn and master innovation that has allowed me to stay one step ahead of the competition. I use hard work and determination to find new ways to integrate technology with competitive sales tactics to drive the modern real estate industry of the future.
