Welcome to my web page, and thanks again for your interest. I grew up in an era when buying and selling real estate was called “The Great American Dream”. My passion as a Realtor® is to help buyers and sellers realize that dream.

I am a graduate of Appalachian State University, having served as President of the Alumni Association and the Yosef Club Athletic Foundation. I served on the Walker College of Business Advisory Board, the Appalachian Legacy Society and am a past recipient of the ASU Outstanding Service Award. My wife and I currently endow four scholarships for Mecklenburg area students. I am currently serving as a Commissioner on the Huntersville Parks and Recreation Commission.

My business philosophy has always been based on the best business advice I ever received. “There are only two things your clients will never forget. One is when you take care of them, and the other is when you don’t.” (My late father, Howard Williams, circa 1970. Thanks Dad.)

Experience ~ Sales and marketing professional since (gulp) 1970. Career sales over $150 million dollars, past Salesman of the Year, 29 annual Top Ten awards. I have a sound understanding of the buying and sell process.

Native of the Area ~ I have built homes in south Charlotte, on Lake Norman, in Davidson, Cornelius, and Huntersville. That knowledge is a great advantage in pricing homes as well as creating realistic offers. I know the market.

Personal Network ~ Involvement with the Nevins Center for Handicapped, Hands on Charlotte, Senior and Special Olympics, Symphony Guild, past Chair of the LN Church of Christ leadership, teacher, current treasurer, and LN Business Expo.

Marketing Plan ~ 850 websites nationally and 20 foreign countries. (The Allen Tate site gets over 50 million hits/month). Print ads, 12 hours per day appointment center, 10 minute website response, weekly email/telephone feedback.

Brand Name Recognition ~ One in three yard signs are Allen Tate. More volume than our next five competitors COMBINED. Fourth largest privately owned real estate firm in the United States. Our 49th year serving this market.

Allen Tate agent network ~ Over 1400 full time Tate agents, all with potential buyers. We will make that American Dream a reality.

Trust ~ If I tell you I will do it, I will do it. If I don’t know, I will search out the answer. If I still don’t know, I will tell you. The best thing about telling the truth is you don’t have to remember it.

Desire ~ I want to earn your business. My goal is to make your transaction the best ever. My Buyers and Sellers Service System is time tested. I treat every transaction with the same level of dedication and professionalism.
