The founder of Allen Realty in Studio City, Mort Allen, has died. He was 75.

Allen was a part of the San Fernando Valley real estate community for most of his life, growing up in Studio City and attending North Hollywood High School.

He founded Allen Realty with his mother Diana Allen in the early 1960s. The company, which is still in operation on Ventura Boulevard, quickly grew and employed more than 80 by the mid-1970s.

Allen is survived by a daughter, grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Services will take place Friday at Mount Sinai Memorial Park in Los Angeles.
