Allen Pool - Realtor
In 2010 I decided to combine my passions: real estate, feng shui, architectural and interior design, and helping others enhance their lives. Originally from the United States, my educational background includes a degree in Marketing & Design, supplemented with post-graduate studies in Architecture, Interior & Landscape Design, and feng shui. I have studied feng shui under a variety of experts who specialize in different feng shui disciplines. Using a combination of the classical Form School & Flying Star techniques, I pride myself on giving clients highly personalized service which has made me a sought-after agent specializing in feng shui and life enhancement. Prior to moving to Mexico, my career path in the United States included tenures in the non-profit, legal & travel fields. Working in travel, another passion, allowed me to visit countless countries on five continents, opening my eyes to the different ways in which people achieve greater harmony, balance and fulfillment in their lives. I have lived and worked throughout the United States including Denver, Los Angeles, New York City and Seattle. In 2008, my life-long love affair with Mexico drew me here permanently.
