Anita provided exceptional service. We would not hesitate to work with her again or recommend her to family and friends.
Anita makes her work her priority. She responded quickly to our needs and alway has a smile and a "can do" attitude. We feel she is family since we have been with her for so long. We strongly feel that in order to be successful in what you do you need to first build a relationship with your clients and that is what Anita has done. We never felt she was in it solely for the commission. She took the time to get to know us and our daughter. We feel we have grown with her through the years. Now that we have found our dream home we feel our relationship with Anita will continue and for that we are grateful.
Anita’s name was given to us by a good friend, we are so happy they connected us. She sold our home within days of putting it on the market. Anita is not just about the sale and putting money in her pocket, she is honest, hard working and wants to do the right thing for you as her client. Anita goes above and beyond for her clients.
Anita did a great job with selling my house, from the staging to coordinating repair people to some of the challenges that the buyer’s agent brought into the sale. I look forward to working with Anita and Allen Tate on future transactions.

Anita is one in a million. She's efficient, tenacious, conscientious and honest. And, as if that weren't enough, she immediately becomes a trusted friend. Both men and women like, trust, and respect her. We'll be forever grateful to her.

We cannot thank Ms. Sabates enough for looking out for our best interests. Rather than let us buy a multi-million dollar home and easily get paid, she pointed out deficits in the house and prevented a large headache for us. We later found the perfect home thanks to her!
Dr. and Mrs. B. Parks
Not only did Anita sell our home quickly, she continued to serve our real estate needs with the diligence that few agents possess. We always felt comfortable with her advice and the price obtained for both sales were better than expected. Your negotiating ability is the best.

Anita is a Realtor with compassion & concern! She sold our home within days and found the perfect home for us- during a time of illness in our family, she took care of us.
Selecting the right listing agent is a critical part of selling ones home. As a former broker-owner of a multi-office real estate company in Raleigh, I knew that my husband and I wanted a Realtor with a history of strong listing performance over a period of time. We set about the search to find that perfect listing agent. We studied company web sites, agent web sites, and Realtor.com to ascertain not only a companys success in the marketplace but also an individuals professional standing in that same marketplace. We then selected three Realtors to interview.
During the interviews, we considered several things:
1) The individuals enthusiasm for our home
2) His/her listing procedure (one-step or two-step)
3) The listing materials
4) Pride in the agents relationship with his/her company
5) Confidence in his/her ability to get the job done quickly
6) Ability to listen between the lines, understanding the needs of the seller
7) Our own gut feeling of a connection to the agent
Anita Sabates was that perfect listing agent. Though she typically lists homes at much higher values than our home, she made us feel that we were her only client and that our home was spectacular. Her attention to every detail was apparent and her marketing team did a superb job staging our home and preparing a lovely brochure to be placed inside our home. She hired her own appraiser to be certain of accurate square footage. She has a handyman ready to do small tasks as needed on a moments notice.
Most important, however, is that Anita has excellent communication skills. The most common complaint about real estate agents is that they fail to keep sellers informed at all times. Anita stayed in touch constantly even during times when we were out-of-town. This strength cannot be praised highly enough.
Though it may sound trite, Anita is simply a very nice person. She knows how to keep things calm in the face of stress and she knows how to choose words that soften. What an effective skill!
Anitas ability to think about three or four steps ahead of what might be coming down the road in the period from contract to closing is so advantageous in helping sellers make both big and small decisions. This too is an impressive and clever art.
We will recommend Anita whenever we might have such an opportunity. She is an outstanding Realtor and a credit to Allen Tate Realtors.
My husband and I had the MOST wonderful experience with Anita Sabates! She is the most professional, knowledgeable, poised, caring and precise individual we have ever had the pleasure of helping us find a home. She went above and beyond the call of duty, as she listened carefully to our desires and made certain she obtained them for us, no matter what the obstacles. She certainly exceeded our expectations for locating a reliable realtor. We first met her professionally, during the Thanksgiving holidays to begin our process, and not only felt very comfortable with her but discovered quickly that we could trust her. Within a couple of weeks, from returning to California, she contacted us to inform us of a few of possibilities not yet on the market. Her description of the homes over the phone, led me to believe that it was a trip worth making. She was so very thorough in offering us all the pros and cons of selecting homes and or locations. Because of this and all her hard work she helped us find our dream home. It was more than perfect for us. We have never seen someone work so diligently and quickly to accomplish a near impossible goal for us. We did not give her a deadline for our desired schedule but she activated one in a "magical timeliness" that left our mouths wide open with surprise. Her perseverance and guidance is remarkable to say the least. I am not so sure that she gets much sleep at night, as her brain must be working in overtime, during the sleeping hours. She was always so available to us even though there is a 3 hour time difference.
At any rate, I am certain you and your company realize what a jewel you have representing Alan Tate but we just wanted to make sure you heard from a HIGHLY satisfied customer. There are not enough adjectives to describe Anita. She is one in a million!
Thank you for having her on your staff for folks like us searching for a home
Anita provided exactly what I needed to secure the best house for me. Anita followed-up on every detail, no matter how insignificant or tedious. She made certain I was getting a good value, something I could afford, a place I could manage and a home I love.
