Amy and her team went above and beyond to get us into the perfect home. As first time homebuyers my husband and I did not know how to navigate this process and we truly could not have done it without Amy's help. We will be recommending her to anyone we know in need of a realtor and will definitely be using her in the future!
Lauren and Michael Phipps
We cannot say enough good things about Amy and highly recommend her! She is professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. She was so helpful throughout the entire process- from the home search, through the closing... (and even beyond!)
Amy Peterson and Kathryn Koster did a fantastic job in finding us our dream home. They were knowledgable, punctual, aggressive and most importantly, extremely pleasant to work with. They respected and addressed any and all of our concerns and/or questions throughout the process, and ensured the experience was smooth and timely. They always kept our best interests in mind and advised us when needed. I have worked with several real estate agents over the years and I am confident in saying that Amy has been the BEST.
Amanda and Chris Chumas
My husband and I bought our first house in 2011 with Amy Peterson. We had such a great experience when the time came to sell, there was no question Amy would be representing us in the selling and buying process again. Amy Peterson and her assistant Kathryn Koster are the absolute best in Charlotte! Searching for a new home while selling your current home can be very stressful. Amy made the process nearly stress free. She was very knowledgeable in guiding us through listing our own property, making strong offers and standing up for us with our own builder as if it were her own home. One of Amy’s best qualities is her attention to detail and communication. The communication between Amy, Kathryn, the buyer, seller, builder and anyone in-between was above and beyond. We were always in the know with everything going on during the selling, buying and building process. This is crucial, especially in new construction. There was never a delay in responses; as soon as Amy knew something, we knew. Amy genuinely cares about her clients and it is very apparent through her hard work and dedication. She is extremely organized, does not skip on detail and has her client’s best interest at heart. Amy will make you feel as if you are her only client when you know she has MANY, MANY more. Amy truly made our buying and selling process seamless and as easy as possible. We consider Amy part of our family now and there is no other person in North or South Carolina we would rather have representing us than Amy Peterson.
As first time homeowners, we could not have asked for a better real estate agent. In fact, we got the best agent out there! Amy is amazing-she goes above and beyond, is very attentive, conscientious, and thoughtful. She made us feel like we were her only clients even though we know she is very busy. She gave us great recommendations, was very informative and was very honest about certain neighborhoods (ie sense of community, good school system). We bought our home based on her recommendation! You will not find a better realtor who is truly committed and invested in finding the right home for you!
Amy worked with us even before we moved to Charlotte. When we were looking to relocate to a warmer climate, we looked at several cities, and Amy was more than happy to help us, even though it wasn't a guaranteed move to the area. She was so warm and open, it took very little time to feel comfortable with her and to trust her. Even though it took us a few years to finally make the decision to come down to Charlotte, once we did, she jumped right in and helped us find a place to rent for the initial move. Once in Charlotte, she worked tirelessly to help us find the perfect house to buy. She was always super supportive of our choices. When we put an offer on a home, and then decided to rescind the offer, she was supportive and never once made us feel badly. When we showed concern about various issues, it was almost as if they became her concerns. Never once did she push us or make us feel uncomfortable in the choices we made. You can tell Amy honestly cares about her clients and her clients' happiness. She wants whats best for them, and makes a real effort to know their preferences. If and when we decide we'd like to move again, we would no doubt use her as our selling AND buying agent. I trust her completely and am so thankful that we found her. And an additional note, her assistant Kathryn is fantastic, as well. They make a great team!
Michelle Baulieu and Brandon Hodges
Amy and Kathryn were nothing short of amazing to work with finding our new (first) home! They were ALWAYS quick to communicate, even at crazy hours! They were both so personable, flexible, and always had our best interest at heart. We had TONS of questions being new home buyers and never once did they not step in to assist. With the Charlotte market as busy as it is, and what we were looking for being a hot commodity, we easily put in numerous offers on houses to find out it was already spoken for. This would be discouraging to most, but Amy and Kathryn didn't blink an eye and did everything in their power to keep searching. And searching they did to find us a more perfect house then we could have ever imagined. We will definitely use Amy and Kathryn when we go to find our next house and would recommend them to EVERYONE!
1. How would you rate the communication during the time you worked with Amy?
Communication was awesome. As first time home buyers Amy and Kathryn went above and beyond to help and assist with questions or showings at a moments notice.
2. What did you like best about working with Amy?
Her knowledge of Charlotte and the housing market. The teamwork!
3. How could Amy have improved your overall home buying experience?
I don't think she could change anything. They both went above and beyond for us.
4. Any additional constructive criticism you would send to Amy and myself?
No, y'all are an awesome team. The communication was fantastic, her knowledge was outstanding and the teamwork was amazing, They did everything they could to assist us in our experience. If we needed anything, they would do everything possible to help us. I think the teamwork, her knowledge of the market as well as Charlotte makes for an outstanding team and successful process. You hear stories on terrible experiences but with this team I don't think that is possible. I would recommend Amy and Kathryn to anyone!
Amy was great to work with and is very professional. She was prompt and thorough during every phase of our home purchase. She not only is an exceptional agent but also is a great resource for finding contractors, painters, roofers, etc. She is knowledgeable about numerous neighborhoods in Charlotte, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Great person. Great counsel. Great results. I've used Amy on two occasions and she has exceeded my expectations both times.
We didn't think it was possible. We owned a home, but wanted to purchase a new house without carrying two mortgages or having to move to a temporary residence. Amy made it happen. We found our new home on a Thursday, were under contract that night, and over the weekend, Amy had our old house listed with showings lined up. By the next week, we had several offers and were under contract to sale our old house. We closed on both houses on the same day. From our perspective everything went seamlessly and stress free and all credit goes to Amy and Kathryn.
Amy supported us in all of our decisions but provided professional advice to make our dreams come true. Her communication skills were exactly what I needed and sought after when selecting her as our agent; she acted many times more as our therapist than our real estate agent which I very much appreciated. Moving from our first home was emotional and Amy was the women and mom I needed to help me make this decision.
When searching for homes with Amy, she made sure either her or Kathryn were always available to show us a home, no matter when we wanted to go. We were also impressed with the respect that other real estate agents have for Amy; they trust her when it comes to closing deals with their clients which I feel only strengthens an offer.
We can't say enough about how wonderful Amy Peterson was to work with. As first-time home buyers, we relied heavily on Amy's expertise and timely communication. Amy has sold many homes in our neighborhood, so she was able to speak to all of the key details: schools, neighbors, historical sale prices, and nearby attractions. Needless to say, she was able to answer every one of our questions. Amy treated us as a priority, served as an expert during inspections, and fought for us during negotiations. If you're looking to purchase or sell a home in Charlotte, Amy Peterson and her team are a great choice. We will absolutely use her in the future.
Will & Laura Brown
We absolutely loved working with Amy (and Kathryn)! Amy provided such valuable guidance throughout the entire process and was available when needed via text, phone calls, email, and in-person meetings. This was our first time selling a house so we really appreciate that we were able to so completely trust Amy with the process, and she did a fantastic job! We were very happy with both the sale and purchase of our homes and could not have asked for anything more from Amy and her team.
Amy did an amazing job guiding me through both the search and the closing process. Since I am a first time home owner, her ability to explain the various factors at play and vendors needed to successfully close was critical. She also has extensive knowledge of the markets where I was searching (Dilworth, Sedgefield). She was able to answer questions quickly based on knowledge from her past experience representing buyers/sellers in the area, which expedited my ability to put an offer on my home, which was accepted by the seller - during a very competitive market!
Deepa and Chad Winebarger
We love working with Amy! She's been our realtor for 5 house/condo transactions now and each time she's been very knowledgeable, responsive, and extremely pleasant! She was available for our last-minute showing requests, infinitely patient (our last house search took a number of months), and always researched each house we saw (both individual house history and neighborhood comps). She was very thorough during both the selling and buying process, especially when working with a builder. Her assistant Kathryn is equally helpful and I will miss seeing them both regularly. We recommend Amy to anyone who asks!
I have been fortunate to work with Amy Peterson and many of her clients with their mortgage needs. Amy understands her clients interests, provides appropriate advice based on extensive market knowledge and is always accessible at all times for questions from the most basic to extremely complex. I would strongly recommend Amy Peterson to any first-time home buyers new to Charlotte, as well as Charlotte natives looking for a change. Amy, thank you for making my job as a mortgage lender easier!!
Amy was terrific. We sold house while living out of state, and Amy was outstanding at coordinating everything from home repairs to showings. She communicated very well with us every step of the way. A great realtor and person. We would (and have) recommended her to everyone!
Kim and Mike O'Neill
Amy did a wonderful job promoting our house. It sold in 6 days after listing. She helped guide us through negotiations and the complex problems of home inspections. If we sell our new house she will be the first one we call.
The best of the best. True asset to Allen Tate.
We recommend Amy to everyone. She has worked with us on three different transactions (2 buys and 1 sell) over the last 11 years. She is a phenomenal realtor. She knows the Charlotte market inside and out, is a fantastic negotiator, explains very complex concepts so that they can be understood, is highly professional, and truly cares for her clients. Amy has our highest recommendation.

Amy has our highest recommendation.
I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about Amy. She - along with Kathryn Johnson - has helped me with both a home purchase and a home sale now. Throughout both processes, she proved to be extremely knowledgeable and honest - not to mention a joy to work with - even when dealing with some particularly difficult factors. When it's time to buy another home in Charlotte, I will absolutely be working with Amy (and Kathryn).
Amy Peterson is simply put, the most amazing real estate agent in the Charlotte market. Her professionalism, attention to detail, vast market knowledge, timeliness and ability to seamlessly champion her clients through the entire buying and selling cycle are just incredible. Most importantly, Amy’s personality is somewhat of a rare gem. She’s the perfect combination of smart, kind, trustworthy, honest, firm - and always puts her clients first. She gets results. On a scale of 1 to 10, Amy gets 100. She’s that good - and we don’t hand out gold stars regularly. She has earned our business for life. - Christy & Justin Derby
Stephanie & Mark Z
We had the best experiencing buying our forever home with Amy. We truly could not have gotten through the process without her help. She was easily able to help us figure out what we were looking for in a home, and once we found the home of our dreams she went above and beyond in helping us navigate through the buying process. We are forever grateful to Amy and would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a home.
Ben and Jill Jackson
Amy was amazing to work with! She was very knowledgeable of the current market and what buyers were wanting to see in a property! She also was always available to answer any questions and help in any way possible! We were able to list and close on our property all in 4 weeks!!
Loved working with Amy! She was so fantastic. We sold our house from out of state and she was so accommodating.
I can't say enough great things about Amy. She was absolutely a pleasure to work with. She made the selling/buying process a lot less stressful than it could have been. She worked so hard for us to ensure that we got the best on both ends from the beginning to the end. I'm so grateful we had such a nice, hard-working and thorough agent representing us. Amy is definitely an agent that I would recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She's the best!
When you're making a transaction as large as the buy or sell of a home, you must choose an agent who's professional, attentive to details, understanding, honest and customer-service oriented. Amy Peterson is that person. We truly can't imagine having a better experience selling our home. During what could have otherwise been a stressful time, Amy supported us and guided us from start to finish. We are so thankful we chose Amy, and you will be too!
Miles and Catherine Bumgarner
Amy recently represented my husband and me in the purchase of our new home. She also represented me in the purchase of my previous home as well as the selling of that home. Amy is an extremely impressive real estate agent as we can attest to by our loyalty to her during any real estate transaction. She is one of the most thorough and detail oriented people that we have ever had the pleasure to work with. We were most appreciative of these qualities as we went through the inspection and negotiation process. We could not have asked for a better agent as she exceeded all expectations. She has excellent communication skills and promptly responds to all inquiries. Amy also has a very helpful and through assistant, Kathryn, who we really enjoyed working with as well. Amy is a world class Agent and we cannot say enough good things about her.
Christine & Greg Parks
Amy is by far the most professional, organized, patient, thoughtful, resourceful, dependable, and dedicated real estate agent out there. Amy sold us our first home and handled the sale of that home and purchase of our forever home! She managed both processes in tandem and continued to exceed our expectations at every turn. Amy goes the extra mile and makes you feel like you are her only client at any given time. She is so responsive and dedicated to her clients. Amy is an outstanding in her role and manages every detail and step of the sometimes tricky, rocky, and complicated buying and selling processes. She is dynamic, intelligent and remains calm under pressure! We think Amy is tip top in her field and are so thankful we came across her before we made our first home purchase. We've been working with Amy since 2010 and she will be our realtor for life!
Robin and Wayne Murray
We contacted Amy in April to discuss selling our home. She helped us with staging (choosing pieces of furniture to remove from each room; changing lighting) and encouraged us to have the house on the market by Mother's Day weekend. We had a contract in 11 days. Amy is a great negotiator and knows the market around the South Park area very well. She was ALWAYS available to answer our questions and give advice (even when she was on vacation)! We started the process of finding a home to move to in late June and Amy was always available to show us homes when we asked. She gave great advice and did a lot of research to help us find our dream home. Once we found a home, she was there asking questions at inspections; always looking out for us every step of the way. Amy is very knowledgeable, extremely easy going and awesome to work with. We highly recommend Amy Peterson!
Amy was amazing! We had such a wonderful experience working with her. She helped us every step of the way and was incredibly patient and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her!!
Ryan and Abbie
We cannot express how happy we were with the service Amy provided during our home buying experience. She was on her game at all times and more than willing to answer questions we had throughout the entire process. Amy has extensive knowledge of the area and is also well versed at pointing out positive and negative aspects of any property. We truly valued her opinion and guidance. Overall, we would recommend Amy for first time home buyers or seasoned veterans.
Amy Peterson is without a doubt the finest realtor I've ever worked with. Her professionalism coupled with an ideal persona is A+. From start to finish Amy represented my wife and me in superb fashion; always working in our best interest and doing what is right for all. Her knowledge and experience base is fantastic and her work ethic is second to none. Amy Peterson is my recommended realtor of choice if you want a great experience with great results! Thank you Amy for all you did to fulfill our real estate needs.
We LOVED working with Amy Peterson. She was so knowledgeable about Charlotte and the current market and that made us feel so comfortable making the offer that we did. She is so personable and she really cares about the clients that she is working with. We knew we were in good hands from the first day and the home we ended up in really proves that as well. Thank you Amy!!!
When we decided to sell our home, I reached out to friends for recommendations for a Realtor. Amy Peterson came highly recommended. I will say I was a little worried at first because I thought that working with such a large Real Estate firm like Allen Tate, I might feel like just another number and not like a valued, individual client. Immediately from the first contact I had with Amy, my concerns about feeling like a number were gone. She set up our initial meeting to see our home, and at the first meeting she was already very knowledgeable about our neighborhood and recent sales. I knew I was in great hands. Amy helped my husband and I sell our home and find our dream home. Her expertise on both the selling and buying sides was unmatched! Amy was prompt in responding to calls/emails/texts, and went out of her way to be available for everything we needed her to do. Anytime she thought she may be unavailable, she made sure her team was on standby just in case we needed them. When unexpected hiccups came up, Amy walked us through the solutions with such grace and professionalism. We really felt like we had a strong advocate throughout the entire process, which is saying a lot coming from two litigation attorneys. The saddest part of the transaction was having to say "bye" to Amy after closing! We know we have found our "forever home" and we will refer all our clients, friends, and family to Amy. I really cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Amy and her team at Allen Tate.
Elizabeth and Dwayne Osgood
Amy and her team were nothing but extraordinary during our Charlotte home search! As a native to the area, she provided experience and expertise on different neighborhoods and school zones which drove our search radius. My husband and I heavily valued her insight in not only targeting these areas, but also accurately price-pointing them. In this fast-paced market, Amy was always immediately responsive and available. She accommodated our work schedules and made time to be present for showings/inspections/re-inspections/walk-throughs/etc. She was far more active and involved than any other agents we have worked with in the past. Amy and her team are incredibly welcoming, friendly, honest, and hard-working - there is nothing more they could have done to help us call Charlotte home. You would be hard-pressed to find any other agents of their quality and caliber. If you are searching for or selling a home in this area, you must call Amy!
Please let this serve as a resounding endorsement of Amy Peterson for anyone pursuing a home purchase in Charlotte. Amy's expertise and insight as a Charlotte native is second to none. From potential school district re-zoning areas to recognizing vast differences in home values of neighborhoods in close proximity, these insights and several others my wife and I observed along the way to buying our first home were characteristic of the wealth of knowledge Amy was. Her prompt and open communication throughout the entire home buying made us rest assured we were in great hands. Trusting heavily in Amy as a adviser, we also turned to Amy for referrals from her to our lender as well as interior designer, which again proved to be seamless and terrific experiences. There is no doubt where we will be heading should we have real estates needs in the future! All the best, The Nash's
We absolutely loved working with Amy! She helped us with the purchase of our new home and the sale of our first home. We really can't say enough about her. She guided us through a for sale by owner situation on the buy side and a multiple offer situation on the sale side. We felt confident she was providing us with sound and thoughtful advice and always felt like she had our best interests in mind. Her knowledge and experience were evident through every step of the transactions. Though we don't plan to move anytime soon we would absolutely work with Amy again and would recommend her to anyone. It is easy to see why her services are in such high demand in Charlotte!
Working with Amy and Kathryn was the best choice I could have made in purchasing my first home. I knew going into any viewing, offer, negotiation, or meeting that I had the strongest team on my side to help me through the entire process. They were always there to answer any questions I had or provide a resource or support when needed (not just in the home buying process but even when it came to finding contractors, painters, cleaners, etc.). Could not recommend this team more to those in the Charlotte area looking to go into this process.
My family has moved a lot over the last 10 years, this is the 5th home we have purchased in that same time frame. I have worked with a lot of different agents across the country and without a doubt I can say Amy Peterson is by far the best we have had. It truly was a pleasure working with Amy, her expertise in every area of the process made this purchase easy and fun. We give our strongest recommendation to anyone looking for a top quality agent work with Amy Peterson. Thanks Amy!!
Kyle and Samantha Roemer
Amy was recommended to us through a colleague and we are so grateful for the referral. We moved across the country with very little knowledge about Charlotte and were first time home buyers. After the first phone conversation, Amy immediately made us feel at ease withe the entire process and hopeful that we would find our home. When looking at homes she offered so much information about the neighborhoods in Charlotte, school systems, and specific details about each house. She then walked us through putting together our offer and helped with negotiating, inspections, etc. She was always an email or phone call away and communicated everything so well. Even after closing she was still answering all of our questions. I really can't say enough about how amazing Amy was in the home buying process!
My wife and I were very happy to have worked with Amy and her assistant Kathryn. Both of them are very knowledgable about Charlotte's real estate market. They made the experience of buying home seamless taking care of many details which would overwhelm the first-time buyer. I could tell that they put the interest of the customer first. In one notable example, they recommended we wait to close on the house until a serious issue is resolved by the seller and I'm not sure if we would have waited had it not been for their professional advice. We got so much better deal in the end!
Justin & Blair Cail
Amy was such a joy to work with through our house buying experience. She was honest and sincere and always there for my husband and I while looking for our house. I would truly recommend her for the Charlotte area. She is one of the best in the business. Thanks again for everything.
This is my fourth transaction with Amy over the past seven years, and my husband and I could not be happier with her service and results! Amy is incredibly knowledgeable and operates with integrity in every circumstance. Amy took the time to get to know our likes and dislikes and didn't waste our time presenting properties that wouldn't fit what we were looking for. On the sell side, Amy presented research to help reasonably maximize our sales price without compromising time on the market. Her communication throughout negotiations is always thoughtful and professional. We will never use anyone else - thank you, Amy!
Amy Peterson is a true professional. She is responsive, honest, hardworking, diligent, and will get your deal done. All i's are dotted, and t's crossed with Amy. No detail goes unnoticed or falls through the cracks. We have done 4 transactions with Amy, all have been very successful. She will lead you through the entire process and keep all players on the team informed and accountable. Thank you Amy!
Amy and Kathryn were amazing. We used them to buy our new house and sell our old one, and despite so many potential hurdles, they helped us through the process with grace and poise! They were always willing to help if we needed it, and took/sent after hours calls/texts. Any question we had was answered immediately. I never want to sell again, but if we do, we won't use anyone else!
