About Terrence V. (TV) Allen

I am a Jamaican Realtor/Real Estate Dealer (Licensed April 2011) with Allen Satterswaite and Associates Realtors and member of the Realtors Association of Jamaica. I have a strong desire and commitment to providing all my clients with the highest quality service on a consistent basis.

You will find that I am very customer focused and driven by zeal to ensure that all clients’ needs, whether it be Real Estate Purchase, Sale, Lease or Rental, are dealt with promptly and at the best price. If you are selling/buying a property I can help you with market analysis based on current trends and advertise your property to identify the most suitable purchaser. My extensive network established over the years through various interest groups both locally and overseas, will enable me to make any deal happen in the best interest of all parties involved.

  • As I get ready to depart Jamaica and return to my home, I thank you for providing me with a most notable experience as a tenant in your rental unit at 11 Seaview Avenue, Kingston 6. The location was superb and an easy commute to UWI Mona campus where I worked. Most of all, it was a very peaceful and secure location within a short distance to shopping and entertainment. I was impressed from the beginning with how well and complete the unit was furnished. The grounds and overall facilities were well maintained, and you were always responsive, both timely and accommodating, to every request I made.I am also grateful to you for how you assisted in rectifying JPS’s mistake in my electricity billing, and your constant queries to insure that all was well. I am happy to recommend your agency to anyone wanting a truly professional experience. If I return again to spend any significant time in Jamaica, you can be sure that I will contact you. Again, thanks for a most satisfying time.

  • "First of all, I’d like to say a big thank you to Mr. T.V. Allen, for his assistance in finding me a comfortable and affordable home. After two months at the home, my wife and I are totally satisfied that he gave us value and quality for our money. My dealings with Mr. Allen were nothing short of exceptional. I remember when I was at the lawyer’s office to close the deal & sign the necessary papers. The lawyer never had the keys for the home at hand, and with just one phone call Mr. Allen put his personal business at the tax office aside to bring us the keys. If that doesn’t say dedication to satisfying customers, I don’t know what does. I, therefore, have no hesitation in recommending Terrence (TV) Allen Properties, as I have complete confidence that you will be in the most capable hands."
