Realtors Andi Wagner and Shawn Allan joke that they have a common understanding growing up as girls with boys’ names. Perhaps that’s one reason why they work closely together in the real estate business.

Their personalities are complementary. Wagner, a high-energy, fast-talking former city girl from Southern California, is a classic extrovert, outgoing and sociable. Allan, also from Southern California, is more the friendly listener, thoughtful and measured in her speech.

Last year they each interviewed with Lyon Real Estate in Placerville. The discussions went well on all sides, and as of this January they have officially joined the team.

Wagner began her career in real estate in 2005. A friend who sold real estate suggested she “would be great” in the business. It was the beginning of the economic slide, and going into the real estate business was considered risky. Taking the positive view, Wagner said, “Things happen to people. They still need to buy and sell homes.”

She started at Pony Express Realty as an agent, and got her broker’s license in 2008.

“I love my clients. They’re so appreciative. I enjoy real estate. It’s my passion,” she said. “I believe that if you have good customer service, honesty and integrity, you will succeed.”

Wagner is a member of the El Dorado County Association of Realtors Board of Directors and EDCAR’s Top Achievers Club president. To become a Top Achiever, Realtors have to have a minimum of $2.5 million in annual sales with at least 10 escrows completed solely by them. She is also active in Team 2000 Real Estate Networking Group.

With two children in sports, Wagner also sponsors high school sports. Son Jakob, 15, plays soccer at El Dorado High School. Daughter Alexis, 10, plays basketball. Her husband Kaleb, a contractor, is a big supporter of her career.

For Allan, real estate is her second career. She worked in foster care for years but after a while found it emotionally draining, she said.

“I decided I needed to get into a more positive environment.” Allan and her husband Scott, who works at Thompsons in Placerville, had bought and sold a number of homes. “I liked the idea of selling someone their dream home.”

A friend suggested that if she wanted to go into real estate she should talk to Wagner, who had her own brokerage at the time. In 2010, Allan got her agent’s license and went to work for Wagner. “I entered into a declining market,” she said. “I just drafted behind Andi and followed her. I’ve been more successful than I thought.”

Shawn and Scott have five children. Four of them are on their own. Lindsey, 12, attends Sierra Ridge Middle School. “I’m a dance mom,” said Allan. She supports On Stage Productions in Pollock Pines, where her daughter is training to be accepted in the Disneyland Parade.

Allan received her broker’s license in 2013. “I love the fact that I’ve become friends with my clients,” she said. “I hope 2014 provides new opportunities for first time and move up buyers and sellers.”

Both Wagner and Allan look  forward to working with Lyon Real Estate, citing great management support and the ability to work with other professional Realtors. The office is located at 4330 Golden Center Drive, Suite C, off Missouri Flat Road. Contact Wagner at 530-409-3984. Contact Allan at 530-306-8709.
