Anita Sabates recently sold our home. We were feeling pretty overwhelmed in the beginning. She swept in and made the whole process a lot easier than we ever could have imagined. She was available every time we had any questions. She really cares and checked up on us on an almost daily basis. She also was able to get people to help out with getting the home ready to be placed on the market in one week. It would have taken us months to accomplish what she did in one week. She also was very proactive with getting things done and questions answered that she felt might pop up during the sale. She sold the home in three days. Our experience working with Anita was amazing and we highly recommend her!
Above and beyond does not even begin to describe Anita's approach. Throughout the buying process she was in our corner, and when the sellers hadn't completely moved out by closing day, she appeared at 6 am with a moving truck and some helpers to make sure they moved out--even though they weren't her clients--so that our closing could go through as planned. She knows the lake, the neighborhoods, the houses, the people... her connections are unmatched. She has an uncanny ability to discern your needs and likes--and find you the perfect house. We are in love with our house, though we didn't even flag it as one we would be interested in. She sent us the info and urged us to look at it--and after just a few minutes, we knew it was our dream home (and still is!). Anita is open, honest, and straightforward through every step of the process. We recommended her to my mom, who has bought and sold dozens of homes over the years, and my mom was so impressed with her when buying a home here that she declared "Anita is the best I have ever encountered, and I have bought/sold dozens of homes throughout four states, with dozens of different real estate agents and realtors."
I can't say enough wonderful things about Anita. From start to finish, she is invaluable. She has high integrity and is very mindful and tenacious. Anita keeping the clients best interests in mind and is able to offer unparalled expertise in the Lake Norman area.
Anita is the best agent I have ever worked with! She is a true professional with extensive market knowledge and understnading of her client's needs. Anita listens to her clients and goes the extra mile for them. Her professionalism, attention to detail, responsiveness and her ability to close the deal is critical. If you are buying or selling a home, do yourselves a favor and hire Anita!
It’s always such a pleasure working with Anita, who seems to have all the answers to our real estate questions. I would highly recommend Anita and her support team who made my transaction all so easy and painless.
Anita was very professional, and went beyond my expectations to ensure that the entire sales transaction went smoothly. Not only did Anita stage and present our home very well which afforded us a quick sale at our asking price she also helped co-ordinate the move of our furniture to Europe given our inability to return to the US with the Covid restrictions. A true professional that I highly recommend.
Anita is by far the most professional, personable, and knowledgeable real estate professional we have ever worked with. Her work ethic far exceeds expectations coupled with her ability to close a deal has been proven time and time again with multiple properties she has sold for us. I highly recommend Anita Sabates to all friends looking to sell their homes and property.

Anita is exceptionally reliable and trustworthy! She, in my opinion and based on our experiences, is the best in the business of real estate. She is an excellent communicator and is confident, polished, and the consummate professional. She is very knowledgeable about the market and market trends. When you are going through buying or selling, it is critical to have someone that truly knows this business and Anita does. The greatest compliment I could possibly be honored to give is that through all transactions, she placed our needs first and we were her priority. I now call her my friend.
Anita has assisted us in selling two homes, helped my parents purchase a home, and we have referred her to friends. She is remarkably professional, reliable, dependable, and friendly. She actively listens to the needs of her clients and provides sound insight to ensure a successful outcome. Equally as important, Anita’s market knowledge is second-to-none and her work ethic is beyond reproach. It is exceedingly clear that Anita loves what she does and truly cares about her clients as she consistently goes the extra mile. We will continue to recommend Anita to family and friends and will absolutely reach out to her for any future real estate needs of our own.
Anita is very conscience of the very small details, that translates into a faster sale at a higher price.
Anita is a true professional in all aspects of a real estate transaction. Anita is diligent,thorough and pays very close attention to detail. My sentiments are shared by many others that have used her services. She listed my last home, sold the home, sold the home of the buyer of my home, listed the home of my next door neighbor she just happened to meet while listing my house, sold my neighbor’s house and finally sold me my new home. What else can I say! She is a hunter not a gatherer. Many agents get complacent once they get your listing and hope it sells. Anita’s work starts when she gets your listing. She spends money to sell your house and offers advice on staging your home for the best sales results.
Anita is wonderful to work with. Knows the market, professional, provides timely updates and know the “high end” buyer.
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 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 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.
We are in the process of relocating from the Philadelphia area to Charlotte. Anita has been a huge help in getting to know the area (Cornelius) as well as working through the home purchase process. We love the home/property we ended up purchasing. Many many thanks to Anita for her efforts on our behalf to work through issues in many areas to finalize the purchase. We look forward to settling into the area and appreciate we have a new friend in Anita. Thank you!
Anita is the perfect Agent . She knows the market , well connected , great judgement and performed like a Navy Seal — came in clandestine fashion — and literally prepped my home to list in 6 days . She has a work ethic that is beyond reproach . I would not hesitate recommending her to family and friends .
Anita provides extremely personal services and will go above and beyond in all categories of service. She's the last realtor you might ever need!

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.
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.
Dr. and Mrs. V. Agnello
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!
Bill and Jeanne Clawson
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.

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
