About Allen

Allen Hovis | Preferred Shore

As a Sarasota resident since 1989, I have seen all the changes from a sleepy beach town to modern metropolis-retirement-playground for the affluent of the world.  Florida is a different Real Estate market unlike any other in the Country, and the barrier Islands are even more distinct.  It's crucial to partner with someone who understands the intricacies and has the experience that provides the knowledge and insight that allows you to make a fully informed decision.


As a Licensed FL Contractor I understand building, Florida State codes and building history in Florida and particularly in the Sarasota/Bradenton area with keen knowledge of barrier island builds.

As an avid Boater/Fisherman, I know the waterways and understand navigability of waterfront properties, helping you to choose a property based upon your boating needs should you desire.

As a Licensed Property/Casualty Agent I understand insurability in FL and how it affects present and future value.  

With my previous experience as a Mortgage Banker and Broker I understand financing as it relates to market, replacement, and rental values.  Knowing the financing differences for single family homes, condos, commercial property and vacant land we can turn your desire into your accomplishment.

When you decide its time to purchase you will never be passed to an assistant or a showing agent or a transaction coordinator.
