After receiving his Bachelor of Arts Degree from American University in Washington D.C., Allan Domb moved to Philadelphia, a place he has called home for the past 39 years. As a result of his love and belief in Philadelphia, Allan began working in 1980 in order to create a highly reputable real estate brokerage firm; a firm which today has helped transform Center City.
In order to become fully immersed in Philadelphia’s real estate market and to help advocate for the rights of private property owners, Allan in 1990, and consecutively in 2013-2015, served as the President of the Greater Philadelphia Association of Realtors (“GPAR”,) a not-for-profit trade organization. Under Allan’s leadership and vision he changed GPAR’s mission statement from the “Voice for Real Estate in Philadelphia” to the “Voice for Philadelphia.”
It was as a result of his vast business experience and involvement in GPAR, advocating for the rights of private property owners and his success in real estate and other business ventures, that Allan realized a niche needed to be filled in the City of Philadelphia’s government. Allan believed that he could bring the same business skills and advocacy ability that made him a successful businessman to the chambers of Philadelphia City Council.
In November 2015, Allan was elected to Philadelphia City Council as an At-Large member. As a Councilmember and a proud Philadelphian, Allan is committed to lowering the poverty rate, collecting delinquent taxes owed to the city, increasing graduation rates, and promoting job growth through the retention of existing business and creation of new businesses by further attracting millennials in the tech and manufacturing industries to Philadelphia.
