” I love Cooma, and I love selling Real Estate
About five years ago I returned to Cooma, after many years away, and it was one of the best decisions of my life. I was born and raised in Cooma. I attended Monaro High and in 1982 I was elected School Captain. After completing my HSC, I joined the Australian Federal Police, and served with the AFP for many years. From working on Christmas Island to representing Australia with the Australian contingent of the United Nations Peace Keeping force in Cyprus, to close protection with the AFP’s elite VIP close protection team which provided close protection to visiting international ddignitaries. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my time with the Federal Police, and it will always hold many fine memories. Being an AFP officer taught me so many things, but mostly it taught me how to relate to a wide range of people. It is this skill for negotiation and communication, when teamed with my honesty and integrity that allows me to be a very effective and professional real estate agent when representing the interests of my vendors.
My career in Real Estate started with Colliers Residential in Sydney. Although I enjoyed my time there, gaining valuable experience, Cooma was ‘calling’ me home. On my return to Cooma, I purchased and then extensively renovated a historic period property, that I later opened as a B&B.
I then had the wonderful opportunity to join Boller & Company Real Estate in Cooma. I have a great respect for both Chippy and Tracy Boller, and the agency is highly respected for its success and professionalism.
Mid 2016 I decided to take a break, to embark on yet another renovation, Chakola Hall. Now that is almost complete, I decided to study to complete my Certificate IV course in property, and was successful in securing my Real Estate Licence – hence the start of my own agency Steve Allen Property.
