Meet Group Managing Director, Carl Allsopp. Carl began his working career in a well-known toy store in the UK where he heard a job advertisement on the radio for a real estate company. He gave them a call, went for an interview and joined one of the Midlands most reputable estate agencies in 2011. Since then his driven and motivated personality has seen his career grow from strength to strength.
Originally employed as a Trainee Sales Negotiator, Carl’s enthusiasm and hunger to succeed was quickly recognised and rewarded through a series of promotions seeing him as the company’s youngest Property Valuer. Shortly after he joined the management team where he discovered his passion for supportive leadership and encouraging his team to reach their goals.
In 2008, Carl made the big move to the Middle East to join his brother, Lewis. The brothers worked side by side for a large, independent real estate agency but they soon realised that the combination of their real estate knowledge and experience in both the UK and Dubai would raise industry standards and from there the Allsopp & Allsopp seed was planted.
With his vast experience, Carl has been instrumental in the upward drive of the company to ensure Allsopp & Allsopp achieve maximum results whilst maintaining an excellent service standard. Carl continues this drive by implementing extensive training to both new starters and existing team members to solidify and maintain the company standards and reputation. He has been at the forefront of establishing a variety of value adding services to our clients including in-house mortgage services, property management, conveyancing and sales progression.
One of Carl's biggest achievements to date is pushing Allsopp & Allsopp to win 'Best International Lettings Agency 2014-15' and 'Best Real Estate Agency in Arabia and Dubai 2012-2013' at the coveted International Property Awards. Carl has since been responsible for a multi-city expansion in the United Kingdom, with his hometown Coventry, Leamington Spa and Nuneaton. He was involved in executing the home shirt sponsorship of Coventry City Football Club for 2014/15 season, a club that the Allsopp brothers have supported growing up.
