Willis Allen Real Estate offices get nautical look

From Willis Allen Reports

Willis Allen Real Estate — headquartered in La Jolla — has undergone a facelift. The lobby and conference rooms at the 1131 Wall St. location — just steps from La Jolla Cove — were recently redecorated. The result is a decidedly upscale, relaxed and old La Jolla beach feel that includes a natural color pallet of blues and tans, weathered wood furniture, seashell accents, and even an elegantly casual chandelier crafted out of thick rope.

Willis Allen’s CEO and President Andrew E. Nelson said the new décor reflects the lifestyle that so many people love about living in San Diego. “San Diego’s pristine beaches, outdoor activities, natural beauty and laidback attitude are all a result of the city being defined by the Pacific coastline,” Nelson said. “Since Willis Allen has been synonymous with San Diego real estate for more than 98 years, it only made sense for our office to reflect a nautical theme. We invite people to stop by and check it out!”

Willis Allen Real Estate, an independent and family-owned brokerage, was founded in 1914 by businessman Frederick L. Brown. In 1924, the company helped found the Real Estate Broker’s Association of La Jolla (REBA) created to promote industry ethics and professionalism.

In 1940, the company’s namesake, Willis Allen, Sr., bought the business, changed the name, and grew with the city. Under his strategic stewardship the company opened its second location in Rancho Santa Fe in 1952 and expanded to Del Mar in 1973.

In 1981, current CEO and President Andre3w E. Nelson took the helm. Under his leadership the company, which he bought in 1995, has more than doubled in size and added additional offices in Coronado, Downtown San Diego, Fallbrook and Point Loma.
