My Homeownership Partners

Mark Jenkins - Allen Tate Mortgage

Like many others here in the Triangle, I am not originally from North Carolina. I was born and raised in New York. In 2009 my family and I moved here with the same hopes and dreams that many families have - more affordable living, good schools and small town charm that we manage to maintain, despite the boom in development. We fell in love with the natural beauty and the close proximity to everything, from the mountains to the shores. We wanted our boys to grow up here and we knew this was our home!

Although jobs took us away briefly in 2015, I returned back to NC in 2017, this time with my two amazing boys, as a widow. There was no other place in the world I wanted to be as I embarked on this new and different journey. Today my boys keep me busy, as my oldest is currently preparing for college and my youngest has me attending soccer games.

I am passionate about cancer research and helping other widows. My outlet is blogging. My personal blog is This widow life and I also blog for Hope for Widows Foundation. I am a supporter of the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation and American Cancer Society.

The first year I came back to NC I purchased a home with the help of the most caring and efficient real estate broker. Under much stress, she made the process as smooth as possible for me and I was so inspired by her amazing service to my family. Though I have over 15 years experience in accounting, in all types of business, I realized that helping someone find a home is more than just a job, but a very personal honor. And it is that very reason I am now doing the same for my clients. Buying or selling a home can be a stressful time. I want you to feel comfortable and answer all your questions as we navigate together. It is my passion to help you, whether it’s buying, selling or renting. I pride myself in professionalism and excellence in my business and I will not let you down.

Let me assist you on your journey because the truth is, The Best Journey takes you Home!
