About Me

Here’s a little bit about me, and why I love real estate and the community.



allen-putnum-countyMy husband Peter and I live on the St Johns River and I am very familiar with all of Putnam county.

We moved from Hollywood Florida to Welaka in 1986 after spending our weekends fishing on the St Johns River and staying in local fish camps. We love the small town atmosphere and slower paced living here. We also enjoy saltwater fishing when we get a chance to spend time at our little cabin in Steinhatchee.



allen-lures-putnum-countyWe owned and operated Allen Lures, a fishing lure manufacturing company in Palatka, from 1989 until 2005. I was involved in all aspects of the company including office manager, payroll, accounts payable and receivable,  shipping, packaging, and anything else that needed my attention!! My husband  ran the sales division, hired our staff,  produced the product and taught our employees how to produce a good product. We sold our soft plastic lures and hard baits world wide!!

We also attended Sporting Good Trade Shows all over the country promoting our products.

allen-lures-logo-smallMy husband also fished BASS for 10 years and has fished every body of water in the US and Canada. I traveled with him and occasionally  pre-fished with him. We fished a few tournaments together in Canada. While in Canada I was part of the first woman team to fish a tournament when our husbands decided to fish together instead of with us!! That was fun!!



laura-allen-volunteerI joined Putnam Habitat for Humanity, as a volunteer, when they started the woman’s  build in 2006. It was great working with friends and the home owners building those homes. I was on the Board of Director’s for 3 years  and have learned a great deal about this wonderful organization.



laura-allen-loveAfter we closed our manufacturing business I made the decision to sell real estate, took the test got my license and went to work helping buyers find their dream home and help sellers get their properties sold! Formerly with the Century 21 office in Crescent City, and In-Style Realty in Palatka, I recently made the choice to work at a new office, Team McClure Realty.

I love working with buyers and sellers and have had many satisfied customers. I have been Top Lister and Top Producer many times. It would be my pleasure to help you find your perfect home or to help you sell your present home. Let me tell you how my experience as a real estate agent can help you accomplish this.
