A 2001 graduate of Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho, Bob has considered the Treasure Valley his home for over 17 years. After working as an engineer at Micron Technology briefly after graduation, he decided to combine his analytical way of thinking with his business ambition and acumen, entering the real estate brokerage business in 2003.

Bob started his career with Coldwell Banker in 2003 and has been affiliated with the company for most of his real estate career. A lifelong learner, he values continuing education and has attained many of the industry’s most-respected professional designations, including the CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), GRI (Graduate REALTOR Institute), and ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative).

As a producing real estate agent, Bob was always in the top tier of sales productivity in the market and values hard work, professionalism, and integrity in business above all else. Bob has been a member of the Boise Regional Realtors’ (BRR) “Circle of Excellence” since 2004 and participates in local industry leadership as a member of the Board of Directors for both the Boise Regional Realtors (BRR) and the Intermountain Multiple Listing Service (IMLS).

In 2013, Bob became Chief Operating Officer of Coldwell Banker Tomlinson Group, eventually transitioning into the role of Designated Broker and Chief Executive Officer. In this capacity, he supervises four local sales offices consisting of approximately 250 real estate agents and 20 staff members. He became a partner in the company in 2014.

“My experience in brokerage ownership/management at Coldwell Banker Tomlinson Group over the last four years – as well as my broader investment and industry experience – positions me to serve the association well in the position of BRR Treasurer. Additionally, having served on the BRR and IMLS Boards of Directors, I am familiar with the Association’s programs, bylaws, and staff. I am very comfortable with oversight of financials for larger organizations like this one and am able to translate details to broader concepts (and vice versa) easily.

I also maintain the belief that you can always tell what’s really important to an organization by looking at where it spends its money. I’d like to build on a system that is already well-run and ensure that our financial activities match our mission, vision, and organizational priorities. I would also like to make it easier for Directors to track and understand what’s happening financially on a regular basis through simplified reporting and regular “laymen’s terms” updates.” – Bob Van Allen

I began my career managing restaurants and developing training programs around the country. I was a national training coordinator for NASCAR Silicon Motor Speedway and an instructor in California training professionals in Microsoft Office. I finally landed back in Idaho where I worked for the Idaho Office for Refugees developing a database and later training users how to use it. I am currently teaching for Boise Regional REALTORS and working at Keller Williams Realty Boise as an associate broker, and working on my IREC instructor application.

Education is important to me, I continually work to educate myself most recently I received my MBA and industry CRS designation. I am actively involved in the community. My notable activities include serving the community with The Junior League of Boise, Learning Lab Board member, PTA executive board member, and other boards and organizations. I spend my free time with family chasing children to various sporting events (lacrosse, gymnastics, golf, etc.) and I like to spend time practicing yoga, reading, camping, skiing, traveling, and riding ATV’s.

I believe that Boise Regional REALTORS® does a great job of linking our REALTOR® community together, I would like to be a part of this organization and help make our association stronger. I have back ground in training and leadership and am ready to participate more in the leadership of my vocation. I feel that we need strong leaders with a strong moral compass to lead our industry. We need people who are willing to lead by example and do the right thing, even when it is hard. We also need these people to have compassion and understanding that we are all people working and learning together. I believe that I have these characteristics.


“I work with a diverse group of buyers and sellers and see their struggles with buying a home no matter what price level of home they are buying or selling. I work hard every day to learn more so I can help these folks have smoother transactions. I believe I am modeling what a great agent is capable of, and want to help others in our industry to do the same.

I have seen the industry change with technology since I started. We need strong leaders to help our members navigate these changes. I appreciate why one agent might choose one model or brokerage over another. As a leader, I feel I work to see both sides of a situation so I can make better decisions.

Today there are many models of real estate to choose from, as an association we need to be able to understand these different models and develop guidelines that are fair to all of them. I have worked hard to understand several of these models and I have been actively involved in real estate through several market shifts. Having strong leadership that can lead during all phases of the market, anticipate membership needs, and communicate effectively is important. I am always striving to become a stronger person and leader than I was the day before.
I believe I have the skills, leadership qualities, interest, and time to help Boise Regional REALTORS® become stronger.” – Elizabeth Hume
