About Allen Gentry

    My story starts with growing up in the small community of Elkin, NC.  During the late sixties, it was pretty much like growing up on the set of the movie "American Graffiti".  It was a good time and place for a teenager interested in cars and law enforcement.


       I started my law enforcement career at an early age and retired from the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office with 30 years service at the rank of Assistant Sheriff.  Most of my career was in investigations or as an administrator.  One of my high profile homicide cases produced a NY Times best selling book and a made for tv movie.  I finished up this stage of my life with nine years of service as a Special Deputy US Marshal with a security group for the federal courts. 


       I received my Real Estate Broker's License in 2003.  This decision has truly turned into a rewarding event for me.  The opportunity to assist buyers and sellers did wonders to restore my faith in human nature.  Seeing the happiness and sharing the joy when someone obtains their dream home has been inspiring.  Working with my wife, Pam Boyle makes everyday a new opportunity!


       On a personal note, I have never outgrown my love of cars or the beach.  There is nothing better for a sunny day than cruising the Blue Ridge Parkway, Ocean Boulevard or simply to a vineyard with the top down.   Truly............................................"Life is Good"................!
