I highly recommend working with Tony when selling or buying your home. Tony takes being a Realtor to the next level by doing the intelligence work for the area and compiling it into a book so you get a digestible snapshot. His ability to comprehend all aspects of the area you're selling or buying from is phenomenal resulting in you being able to sell or buy with 100% confidence. His past professional experience as a Logistics Officer really gives him an edge for he's always cool, calm, collective, and gets the job done. On a personal level Tony has great integrity, is down to earth, and friendly. He took the stress out of us selling our home and made it happen in record time (3 weeks from list to closing). Since the time frame was so drastic we had a lot of bumps in the road which he navigated with ease. Again, I highly recommend selling or buying your home with Tony and am 100% sure your experience will be the same.
We’re several months in now, but I am still amazed by the service you gave us. Hope you’re doing well. Here are my thoughts about our interaction with you. Hopefully, you’ll be able to benefit from my gratitude for you... Having Tony involved was a real blessing. My family and I were completely unfamiliar with the Charlotte area other than some research we had done online. In addition, because my handicapped father-in-law lives with us, we had to locate accessible options. Tony patiently listened to what we needed and provided options for us. He even arranged school visits and accompanied us on them. We identified an area and decided to build to obtain a more handicap accessible home. Since we were building, this involved a several month process. Tony helped and guided us in our building process. Since we were not local, he even took pictures of the house in different stages of construction and helped coordinate needed adjustments. He arranged inspections, intervened with the builder, and was always available to answer questions. When we finally were able to close, Tony was there to celebrate with us. He truly has been a resource and a friend through the entire process. I can’t speak highly enough about Tony. He has been a true professional and consistently goes out of his way to help and represent our needs and goals. It’s no surprise that I confidently refer my business associates to Tony and I always hear the same excellent feedback from them.
I wanted to say thank you so much for all of your hard work. You far exceeded my expectations of helping me get my home ready for the market and selling in such a quick time frame. I can’t believe that in less than three months of meeting you that I’m in my new house!! I really appreciate all that you did for me and for being so informative and helping me make a great investment in my new home. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone I come in contact with looking to buy or sell. This was my fourth home purchase and you are definitely the best realtor I’ve ever worked with! Thanks again!
Anthony Frantilla is a very motivated individual and his work ethic is outstanding. He is a very trustworthy person whose dedication is second to none.

Immediately upon meeting Tony, I knew he would be a fantastic Realtor. He has great motivation and a desire to be educated and stay on top of his game. Being proactive rather than reactive is one of his best strengths and he strives to be prepared for anything. Customer satisfaction is of utmost importance to him and you will love to be around him!
Craig and Lauran Chenoweth
Tony Frantilla went above and beyond our expectations. He was referred to us by our financial institution and we were incredibly grateful. He took the time to listen to what we were looking for and set off immediately to finding us our perfect home. Tony is such a determined agent, he stopped at nothing, not even the ending of "business hours" kept him from getting things accomplished on our behalf. In addition, he is down to earth and incredibly fun to be around. We thoroughly enjoyed our time working with Tony. We would recommend him to anyone.
Jeff and Jessica Swiney
...We are so grateful to have found Anthony “Tony” Frantilla to help us sell our current home and buy a new one. He was able to help us work through all of those unanswered questions to make sure we were making the right decision. Once we met with him, he hit the ground running, looking for comps for our current home, getting the word out about his upcoming listing, and sending us listings to help us find the perfect new one. Our house was under contract after 5 days and multiple offers and we ended up with more than our list price!
His energy and passion are so contagious you can tell he really loves what he does. He was available anytime day or night to answer a range of questions we had during the buying and selling process. When looking at homes to buy, he was the level headed one making sure we were making the right long term decision for our family. He made sure everything was being handled in a timely fashion not only on his end, but with the buyer’s agent of the house we were selling. He was our voice when we were unable to attend our inspection and made sure to call us the second it was over.
We are truly grateful to have found a realtor with such passion and dedication to his clients. We are more than happy to recommend him to any future homebuyer, you will not be disappointed. Tony is not only an extraordinary real estate agent, but a new friend and it has been weird not talking to him as frequently.
I very rarely, if ever, write reviews for experiences I have encountered. However, my experience with Anthony “Tony” Frantilla of Allen Tate was by far one of the most positive and professional encounters with a business professional I have ever experienced...
Though we have purchased and sold many properties over the years, our experience with Mr. Frantilla was considerably more thorough, needs focused and directed towards our desires than any relationship before his.
Tony sat down with my wife and me to discuss our wish list before searching for our home with us. He thoroughly probed to understand our needs first, rather than pushing us towards zip codes and price ranges as have been our experiences in the past. Mr. Frantilla discussed our purchase from a financial aspect and walked us through the short term and long term goals we had for our home purchase. This attention to detail and our specific financial desires is one of the reasons we respect him and his advice as a realtor.
During the home search process, my family and I were “blinded” by several homes. Tony was never reserved about his opinion towards these properties. At one point, we had our hearts set on a new construction home we found on our own. So much so, that we were willing to offer list price for the property before discussing with our realtor. Thankfully Mr. Frantilla intervened and discussed comparatives with us. He saved us from making a $500k mistake, while also putting a significant bonus offered to him by the builder, second to our financial needs.
When we finally found our dream property, we trusted in Tony to represent us and leaned on his professional experience. Not only were we able to procure everything we wanted in our new home but Mr. Frantilla was able to negotiate a significant discount on our property during the build process. To this day, our home’s value is the most competitively priced property of its kind within our neighborhood, thanks to Tony.
This is the point when most real estate professionals would walk away as their role has been completed in the buying process. Our experience with Anthony Frantilla, post purchase, is why I consider him a consummate sales professional and perhaps the most customer centric sales professional I have ever done business with. Within a month of moving into our new home, we had a faulty plumbing line rupture, flooding the entire first floor of our home. This experience was devastating to our family. When Mr. Frantilla got word of our situation, he quickly came to our aid in representing us with our builder during the restoration process. With nothing to gain by helping us in this crisis, Tony took it upon himself to send numerous e-mails to executives in the employ of our builder to ensure the repairs were completed on our timeline and to our standards. He visited our home to discuss necessary repairs and to verify the progress in person.
I have never before felt as though our realtor has earned their commission from a sale or purchase, before my experience with Anthony Frantilla. Based on the experiences before, during, and after our home purchase, I would gladly be willing to pay for his services again.
If Anthony Frantilla should ever need a professional recommendation of any kind, I will gladly extend an open invitation for those individuals to contact me.
Tony Frantilla was the best realtor we've ever had the opportunity to work with. He met our needs and expectations throughout the entire home buying process despite our very short timeframe. He always replied promptly and thoroughly addressed any concerns we had, as well as explaining every detail to us along the way. We felt very comfortable with Tony's knowledge of the real estate market and his drive to make things happen. I can tell you this is not the case with all realtors as we recently came out of a bad experience with another before being recommended to Tony. I can tell he genuinely cares about helping people find the right house. Highly recommend and will use him again, kudos Tony, thanks again!!
I want to thank Tony for his amazing assistance in helping us to find our perfect home. From the
moment we first spoke, to the signing of the closing documents, Tony was there for us protecting our
interest and giving us guidance. He was very accommodating to our schedule including being available
for all the contracted home inspections. His exceptional level of service and expertise is unparalleled.
Tony’s knowledge of the greater Charlotte area was invaluable in our search. Tony was a veritable
sleuth in digging up much needed information on homes. My wife and I will always be thankful to Tony
for making our house hunting so much fun. I can highly recommend Tony to anyone looking for a
smooth buying or selling process.
Me and my wife always felt buying a house was a stressing process but Anthony made us feel comfortable through every step. We loved how he quickly made us lose our fears and made us trust him with any questions or concerns. We definitely enjoyed our home buying experience with Anthony. If I were to do it all over again, I would do it with him.
Tony was such a pleasure to work with. He was extremely professional and we could tell right off the bat how knowledgeable he is. He really was looking out for us and our best interests. Once we found the house we wanted, the seller was basically representing himself and Tony had to deal directly with him, which was not easy. We also had issues with the bank getting our financing through so we had to move the closing date a few times. This made things a little bit more difficult keeping the seller on board but Tony worked his magic and we love our new home. I highly recommend Tony to anyone looking to purchase a home. He was truly amazing!
Tony was excellent, he really worked hard to get us a house that met our qualifications. We spent a lot of time narrowing the field til we got to a pretty solid idea of what we wanted. Once there, we got to a choice pretty quick. Tony was very helpful during the closing process, keeping an eye on everything and making sure we were on track for our planned close. I would strongly recommend Tony to any prospective buyer or seller.
Tony was just unbelievable to work with and made our move from Massachusetts to NC so much smoother than it would have been. He listened to our laundry list of preferences, and provided us with exactly what we were looking for in a house and neighborhood based on his vast local knowledge. Most importantly, from day 1 he was available pretty much 24/7 and always kept us updated on the status of our move. We definitely felt he was working and pushing for us every step of the way.
Sue and Jim Watters
If you are looking for a professional real estate agent, we highly recommend Tony. From our first meeting to closing, we appreciated Tony's enthusiasm, communication style, and expert advice when listing our home. His guidance on staging, photography, and listing details really showcased our property, and, clients and buyers loved our home.. Most importantly, our home sold at our asking price. A realtor with heart, brains, and passion. Thank you for all your help Tony, we will miss your visits.
Tony is an excellent realtor! He was prompt, professional, friendly and trustworthy. He was quick to return calls, and was available after-hours, or on last minute notice. He was very patient with our numerous home viewings. During the purchase and closing, he explained everything clearly, took care of the details, and made the home buying process as smooth as possible. I felt confident using him as a realtor and would highly recommend him for your next home purchase.
I work with lots of realtors but Tony's work ethic and his attention to his client's needs is what sets him apart from all the rest. If you want someone who is looking out for your best interests he is right choice for you.
Mark & Julie
Tony was wonderful to work with throughout our home-buying process. As we became interested in homes to look at, he was available soon after our requests, and was always flexible on meeting times. He listened to our concerns and priorities, and went out of his way to make sure the homes we looked at fit our vision. He was always updating us on the latest to hit the market that he felt might be right for us. When we found our home, he clearly and frequently communicated with us about next steps and all we needed to be thinking about. As first-time homebuyers, this was so helpful to us. Even one month after closing, Tony has been quick to answer further questions we had. We would recommend Tony to anyone, and are thankful he was our agent.
Tony was readily available and easy to contact if we needed help. He is especially good at helping first time buyers feel comfortable in the process. We never felt like we were in the dark regarding the whole process. I felt like Tony was good at getting to know us enough in order to help us determine certain areas of Charlotte that would be best suited to our needs and lifestyle. I would certainly recommend Tony to our friends. We felt like we found a great deal with our new house and appreciated all of his help along the way!
I first met Tony at one of his rental homes. I was driving by and noticed the door was opened at a home I had been watching being restored for a few months. When I went to the front door, Tony was extremely courteous and professional. Although he had never seen me before he greeted me with his famous Tony Frantilla smile . I was allowed to tour the home and ask questions. Tony had no idea I owned a home around the corner I had been trying to sell. I hired him that day and although my house had not been viewed for approximately six weeks, he was able to get a ton of people through the door. Truly amazing! After receiving a couple of low-ball offers, Tony, my husband and I set up a meeting and together we concluded that the property was worth every penny we were asking for and since we were not in a position to give it away, we decided to rent out the house and wait for the area to improve since it is so close to uptown. He immediately found us a renter and now our future is much brighter and we have a firm plan of action. Tony is an amazing real estate agent and a wonderful person. My hope for whom ever is reading this is that one day you will be blessed to work with him. Good luck Tony and keep up the great work.
Tony made my first home buying experience a very positive one. He always had my best interest in mind and walked me through the entire process. He was also available for additional questions I had after I moved in.
Ross and Becky C.
Tony was great in helping us find a house! We were first-time homebuyers, and Tony answered all our questions and helped minimize any stress throughout the process.
Kristina & Josh
Tony is very knowledgable about the Charlotte area, and quickly understand what we were looking for. He was always available and patient with our questions. Tony made our first home purchase a much less intimidating experience and we will be recommending him to others.
Phillip and Melissa Draa
Tony was very helpful throughout the entire process and made the home buying process easy while keeping us informed through every step. This was especially helpful to us as first-time home buyers. He was available and flexible and responded to communication quickly. He guided us without making us feel pressured and knew the area well. We would definitely recommend him and love our house!
As first-time home buyers moving from out of town, we were out of our comfort zone to say the least. Within the first two times we met with Tony all of our worries disappeared and it started to become exciting instead of scary. His wealth of knowledge accompanied by his personality make the home buying experience very enjoyable. If you are looking to make a smart buy and have a good time doing it, Tony is the guy for you.
I have been working with Tony since I first moved to NC 3 years ago. Even though I was just renting at that time, he went out of his way to get me into a place. When I needed to move further towards the city (still renting), he was no longer doing rentals, however, he helped me get into a rental place despite his already crazy schedule. When it finally came time to purchase a home of my own, he was my first call, of course. As an unsure first time home-buyer, he explained the process to me and helped to guide me to a good decision. Because we have worked together for some time, he was able to figure out my likes and dislikes and really got to know me as a person. This only helped the situation move along smoothly and made it all a little less stressful for me. I greatly appreciated that I was able to trust in his advice and decisions, as well as all of the hard work that went into my home-buying experience. I recommend him to everyone any chance I get.
Tony was a great buyers agent to work with. He went out of his way many of times to help us and answer any questions we had. If we decide to sell our house we would definitely use Tony in the future. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needed an agent in the Charlotte area. Thanks for all your help T-money
Ron and Debbie Giantonio
Our experience with Anthony Frantilla was phenomenal! His professionalism and knowledge of the market was impeccable. Tony is not only friendly and easy to work with, but his expertise was unquestionable. Our situation was exceptional in that we are currently living in another state and bought our retirement home in South Carolina. As you can imagine, it was sometimes stressful handling things from a distance. Tony helped alleviate our stress and handled everything in a timely manner and always got back to us with answers to questions we had. Allen Tate is lucky to him as part of their team. I sincerely recommend Tony as a realtor.
Shilpa and Sumeet Dey
Tony has proven to be an excellent realtor with our first house purchase. He has been extremely supportive, very flexible, was able to comprehend our requirements real quick, provided honest feedback, perceived our apprehensions and showed great positive attitude at all times. It has been our pleasure working with him and we would highly recommend him to anyone that's a first time home owner (or otherwise). He not only helps with identifying a suitable house but also provides great suggestions, works very closely with his clients, is very detailed, prompt and thorough.
Tony exuberates utmost amount of professionalism and care which you really need in your realtor. He is always listening to your needs and expectations and makes sure that his approach is flexible to your needs. I worked with Tony for 9 months and he showed me a whole bunch of properties. What I value is that there were times when I was about to make an impulsive decision however Tony ensured that he brings to me a complete perspective prior to making a decision. Overall, it has been a great pleasure working with Tony and I will recommend him to anyone anytime !
We had about 2 weeks to make our move from KY to Charlotte, NC and Anthony was working diligently to help us find our new home. His knowledge of the area is admirable, professionalism and always able to communicate is exceptional. We spent a great deal of time with Tony to look all over the available houses and Tony is always happy and energetic to help with every question that we had. Tony was also able to negotiate a great deal when we finally found our home, he was helping with the closing when issues occurred and followed through to get it done so we can settle in our home the same day. We have been in 3 new homes in the last 5 years, and Tony is the best agent that we have ever worked with. Highly recommended! We would call Tony again if we ever move to another place! Great job and personality!
I first met Tony when I was looking for a rental home in the Charlotte area. Tony quickly found several homes for rent in the area I was looking in. He took me to each and helped me decide which home to rent. When I decided to start looking for a house to purchase 4 years later, I contacted Tony again. From preapproval of the mortgage straight through to closing, Tony was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and professional. Throughout the process Tony took as much time as needed to walk through the process with me. As this was a new build, he even sat through hours of selecting the materials for the home and advised as to what he thought was worth the money. Tony negotiated with the builder to include several upgrades, including hardwood floors and molding that I had not selected as they were too expensive. I would not have the beautiful house I have today if Tony had not been my realtor. He really went above and beyond what I expected, each and every step of the way. Tony made me feel confident in my decision to buy and I felt as if I had a trusted advisor and friend helping me throughout the process. The purchase of my home was a wonderful experience, due mainly to Tony’s dedication, knowledge and experience. I have, and will continue to recommend him to everyone I know looking to purchase or rent a home!
We had the pleasure of having Anthony for buying our first home and it was excellent. He is a very friendly person to work with and will do all the help in every stage of buying the home. Also provided us with valuable feedback on every question that we had, he explains everything very precisely. He has a good knowledge of the area and good insight on what we are looking for.If you want to have a great home buying experience then Anthony is the realtor you need to work with!
Tony was wonderful to work with as a buyer's and seller's agent. He is very responsive and provides honest feedback. He offered great advice on staging our house for showing, which I believe made a big difference. He was also very helpful during the inspection and due diligence process on our new house. He is knowledgable on many different areas of Charlotte as well. I would recommend him to anyone. It was a pleasure to work with him.
~~Tony is a highly qualified real estate professional who can assist with relocation – both temporary (rentals) and permanent (purchases). When I met with him, he not only assisted me by showing me multiple properties, but by extensively educating me on the Charlotte area, which was very helpful since I was new to the area. He is not simply a real estate agent looking to “make the sale”, he is very passionate about his career and goes above and beyond for his clients. I recommend referring any new hires we have looking to rent or purchase a home to Tony.
Anthony is knowledgable, trustworthy & great to work with. He went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable in the selling process. I was out of state selling a home I had unintentionally been renting out while the market rebounded. With the distance and being so disconnected from the Charlotte community - it was nice to work with someone so reliable. He was easy to contact and followed up when he said he would. He also went the extra mile to ensure my house showed well and got attention. I had multiple offers the day we listed & he helped me sort through and weight each to find what was right for me. Considering another agent told me the house was undesirable (given the street it was on) -- I think choosing Anthony as my agent was the best decision I've made in awhile. I'd use him again and would recommend him to anyone selling in the Madison Park/South Charlotte area in a heartbeat.
Anthony Frantilla knocked it out of the park!!… We had a house to sell and we walked away with exactly what we wanted… We had a house to build and he was there every step of the way. Tony jumped in and caught some of those important details in construction, contracts and timing we sometimes overlooked. We would recommend Tony to anyone without hesitation.
Michelle E. Walters
We spoke with Tony, at an open house in our neighborhood, a long time before putting our home on the market and were very impressed with him. So when the time became closer to putting our home on the market, we chose Tony over a few other realtors because of the easiness to interact and communicate with him, we liked his enthusiasm and especially his knowledge of our area. Tony assisted us in moving and re-arranging things around to create a better environment. Through it all Tony was patient with us in all of our questioning and concerns. We would have Tony work with us again if the opportunity arises and certainly recommend him to others!
Looking for a new home is very stressful. Looking for a new home while also trying to sell your current home is a whole different kind of stress! Thank goodness we had Tony to help guide us on both ends. He made it so easy and was there every step of the way guiding us and making sure we understood the process. He was available whenever we needed him day or night. Thanks to Tony, we not only sold our home but found the most beautiful home and have loved every second in it! You will not be disappointed if you choose to work with Tony!
My home buying experience with Tony originally started in the fall of 2016. My closing date was in mid April. During these months Tony became more than our realtor, Tony became a friend. Working with him was a great experience! I honestly can't say enough about his work ethic and attention to detail. Tony took the time to get to know me and my girlfriend and really understood our needs and limitations. He was always early for appointments, quick to respond to emails/ texts and never missed a call. I'd recommend Tony to anyone and look forward to working with him again in the future. Thanks Tony!
Tony and his team were on top of things. No... really. I got regular pictures, updates, and heads up warnings about everything coming before they were due. He helped us close on a house when we were over 600 miles away, getting ready to sell and pack up our old home, and made it feel like we had someone down there we could trust to handle anything that came up.
Tony was an amazing realtor and really went above and beyond in all steps of the process. It was our first time buying a house after recently moving to Charlotte and Tony spent several hours on a Saturday giving us a driving tour of Charlotte and insight on all of the various neighborhoods. After we put an offer in on a house, Tony and his team were on top of managing the entire process from offer to close. Tony was very responsive to all of our questions and really put any worries we had at ease! I would definitely recommend Tony and would love to work with him again in the future!
I had the unique experience of both buying and selling a home with Tony in less than 6 months. In both situations I found Tony to be professional, honest and urgent in all aspects of the purchase and selling process. I felt comfortable he was looking out for my best interests while providing realistic expectations and advice. I would work with Tony again if given the chance and would recommend him to family and friends as well.
Tony is a true professional. I was referred to him by a friend a few years ago when I was first considering buying, but it turned out that it simply wasn't the right time. Tony gave me an honest opinion of the properties we saw. When I told him it didn't seem like the best time he was completely understanding and not at all pushy in the ways one might expect of anyone in sales. Fast forward to this summer, and My fiancée and I finally knew for sure it was the time to buy. I looked at countless (mostly due to my own pickiness) properties with Tony - enough to exhaust most people, but if he ever felt that, he certainly didn't show it. Again, he gave honest opinions of what was valuable in each property and what wasn't, and we finally found a winner! I highly recommend that anyone looking purchase in Charlotte work with Tony. He's not just in it for the commission; you can tell he cares about his clients and their best interests when making such a big investment - for most, the biggest of their lives. Thanks again, Tony for all you did. We couldn't be happier!
Tony is the man! This is the second time he has helped me find a new place, and the first time taking me through the selling process. He was always available and answered any questions I had (even if they were stupid ones). He had great suggestions that, at the time, I didn't think were so great, but in the end truly helped to sell my house. I would highly recommend him!
Kevin & Elisabeth Hayes
We recommend Tony to anyone that wants to sell their home. His marketing plan was concise, and far superior to other companies we met with. He priced aggressively, but not outside the area comps, showing he was well aware of the demand for our area in a tight Charlotte market. Our home sold in a week! Between bringing in a Home Stager, suggesting contractors and even cutting, staining and installing a new floor transition piece himself, he made this whole process so easy on the seller it's hard to remember what an intricate business it is. His Client Coordinator, Renee Knapp, was fabulous at keeping track of what we were supposed to be doing, and when. Not an easy task! Bottom line: if you're looking to sell your home there's only one name to know....Tony Frantilla....an exceptional Realtor.
We had a wonderful experience with the Frantilla and Huss team! Tony was beyond excellent! He was always available to answer our questions. Being new to the area Tony was very knowledgeable. Tony helped us find our dream home and negotiated for an excellent price. I would highly recommend. Tony and his team consistently go above and beyond!
Tony came highly recommended to us when we began searching for our first home. We couldn't be happier that we decided to follow those recommendations and go with him. As first time buyers, having someone as knowledgeable as Tony made the process much easier for us and kept our minds at ease. It was really a great experience and we will be passing the word around how great he is to work with!
We are so excited to have purchased our new home. We have been working with Tony for 2 years to find the perfect home for us. He is very knowledgeable of the market, super supportive, extremely patient and offered very much needed advice to make sure we made a sound financial decision.
Christopher and Erica Shaver
Our experience with Tony Frantilla was fantastic. We were first-time home buyers and came with a lot of questions. Even though we grew up around the area, we did not know what part of Charlotte we wanted to settle into, or what parts of a house we prioritized. Tony sat down with us and explained the whole process to us step by step and went over our questions, which put us at ease. We started off looking at houses in different areas of Charlotte. Tony slowly started pointing out things to us that we would have not otherwise seen at each house we saw, and in the neighborhoods themselves. Since we were not in a rush and had time to be pickier, we wanted our purchase to be just right for us. Tony was patient and always answered our calls and emails right away. He started picking up on what we liked more and more, even before we noticed those things too. We eventually found a house to call our home, that we absolutely loved, and in our preferred location. We couldn’t be more thankful for Tony – we will recommend him to anyone we know going forward, and will happily work with him again for our next move!
Our house experience with Tony and his team could not have been better! They put themselves out there for you every day! Tony is always reachable by phone, (one of Rich’s requirements for working with someone!!!) and they answered every question, and guided us along, not hesitating to offer help in any way, moving things, loaning us props for staging, etc.!!! His patience and experience helped us to sell in 11 days, and he handled all the heavy lifting when it came time for negotiations after inspection. Thank you Tony and your amazing team. Don’t know where we would be today if not for you!❤️
Lynn and Rich Martin
These guys are amazing. They really took care of us. I don't think we would have sold as quickly or for the price we received if not for Tony's help and guidance. We never had to wait for anything, the team responded immediately to our requests. I worked with them to buy the house in the first place and so I expected good things but they surpassed my expectations. I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again and will strongly recommend them to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell.
Mr Frantilla was always very professional. He not only spent plenty of time with us during our search, he also helped us understand important cultural and legal nuances, associated with the area, we would not have known about otherwise. From the time we met Mr Frantilla until after closing, he was guiding us.
Craig and Lauran Chenoweth
We could not be happier with our experience. Tony and his team are friendly, considerate, professional, and wonderful to work with. The process of buying and selling a home is stressful but the Allen Tate Ballantyne team make it as pain-free as possible. Tony is more than a realtor, he becomes a friend that deeply cares about his client’s happiness and investment. I will recommend him and his realty team to others every time.
Larry & Karen Liebgold
It is with pleasure and much gratitude that we acknowledge Tony for all he did for us! Following our decision to relocate from Colorado to the Carolinas, we were told Tony Frantilla with Allen Tate was the best. From the beginning he helped us navigate each step of the process with the utmost professionalism and expertise. He always made us feel like we were his most important client and in the end he delivered on his goal to find the perfect home for us!! We highly recommend Tony and Allen Tate Realtors for your real estate needs! Sincerely, Larry & Karen Liebgold
Cheryl McClure and Brian Laton
Tony! We can't express our gratitude enough. Your knowledge of the industry was incredible. You, by far, exceeding our expectations of the entire house buying process & we are so happy we decided to work with you! We remained calm through it all thanks to you. The process was SO simple and smooth and we really appreciate you going above and beyond for us. We don't know how this would have went if we had worked with someone else, but we don't want to know! You've gained two clients for life! We can't wait to work with you again in a few years when we're ready to sell. We are so thankful. You rock!
Tony and his team have been absolutely fantastic! I am a first time home buyer and Tony helped explain every step of the process so that I felt confident with my decision. He is very experienced and will help you find the perfect fit. Tony works with Lynn who is apart of the Frantilla and Huss Team; she is always immediately available and works diligently behind the scenes in order to help move everything along rapidly. I have already recommended Tony to friends and family that are purchasing homes in the near future. Whether it is your first home purchase or your last, Tony treats you with respect, works through all of the due diligence details, and provides an extraordinary service. He is unmatched from all others in the business. Thanks again for helping me find my first home and I look forward to working with you again.
Tony Frantilla is AMAZING! He was lock-step with me throughout the home buying process. He and his talented team kept me updated regularly and advised me on many of the nuances that occur during the process. The team is so smart, knowledgeable and have resources to assist navigating any of these nuances that do come up! I could not have dreamed of a better team to partner with this life decision. Awesome experience!
Lucia Pinheiro & Steven Bradley
Tony was extremely thorough and his follow up incredible. He listened carefully and at times knew what we wanted better than we knew ourselves! We are very grateful to have had Tony guide us in this life change as he really did make sure we made this massive decision on our new home with all the right facts.
Justin and Mia
Tony was truly a blessing in our search for a new home! We were first-time homebuyers and knew absolutely nothing about the process but Tony was extremely patient with us and guided us every step of the way. The real estate market can be very intimidating but we felt at ease knowing that Tony was there to help us make decisions and we felt fully informed of all of the options available to us. Overall, we can't recommend Tony enough for anyone in the Charlotte area and we will definitely be working with him in the future!
Ross and Becky C
Tony helped us through the entire process of getting our house sold. From the initial meeting when we discussed options and the best way to get the house ready to sell, through listing the house and navigating multiple offers, all the way to closing, Tony made this process extraordinarily easy. He even helped out with some hands-on work with repairs, and was willing to go above and beyond to make everything go smoothly. He helped us buy this house several years ago, and we knew immediately he would be the best one to help us sell it. We highly recommend working with him!
From the moment we started working with Tony we knew we chose the right realtor. His knowledge of Charlotte and the surrounding areas impressed us from the get go. He was always prompt and made time for us, even if it was just for consulting. Every question we had about a property he answered honestly and explained it throughly. We valued his advice and recommendations, which lead us to the smooth sell of our townhome and the purchase of our dream home. We can not thank him or praise him enough! Anthony Frantilla is a realtor you can trust and the one you should want.
Working with Tony was great! Being a first time homebuyer you come across new words, obstacles and processes and Tony was more than happy to break everything down for us to understand and no question was a dumb one. Working with Tony you can tell he has his clients backs, listens to what you like/dislike and will be honest every step of the way. I would recommend him to anyone! The Frantilla & Huss Team always keeps you informed and updated on any changes which is much appreciated when going through the process.
It was a pleasure working with Tony Frantilla and his team. With his guidance and knowledge of the housing market and my neighborhood, I was able to set and get a fair market price for my house. And my house was under contract within 2 weeks of being on the market. He also has a great team of contractors who will work to get your house ready for sale, if need be. They did some excellent work on my house and it all looked great. Tony was always available to answer all my questions, from listing the house all the way through to the closing. I enjoyed working with Tony, and would definitely recommend Tony and his team for all your realtor needs.

The knowledge and expertise Tony brought to the sale of my mom's home was invaluable. He led us through the process providing support and guidance at every step. I can confidently say that if it was not for his involvement, we would have been lost. I can't provide enough positive feedback on both Tony and the Huss team. I almost wish I had another home to sell! I recommend them 100%
Tony was fantastic! I could not imagine another realtor being more knowledgeable and prepared during the entire process. He was able to listen to our home requirements and needs while providing valuable insight that helped guide us to the perfect house in the ideal neighborhood. On a personal note, Tony is upbeat, energetic, engaging and easily able to connect to others. He possesses all of the traits that making the home buying process and enjoyable endeavor.
Tony is a wonderful realtor! We had no idea who to contact when we found out we were moving. So we picked a realtor and I'm so glad we picked Tony! From the very start, Tony really took the time to listen to our wants/needs and he kept the communication going through the entire house buying process. He was always available to us and I'm so appreciative to Tony and his team. Thank you, Tony and team for helping us! We are truly grateful!!
Seeing that this is our first home, there were a lot of uncertainties we had about what to look for in buying a house. Tony was excellent and is an extremely knowledgeable realtor that we relied on. Any questions/concerns we had, Tony would give us his opinion on what he would do. Very quick to respond and make sure we were taken care. If you are looking to buy or sell, I would recommend giving Tony a chance to work with you because you won’t be let down!
We liked the showtime app. With feedbacks. Tony was always good about communication with positive attitude.
My husband, our two small kids and I moved to Huntersville, NC from Jacksonville, FL for work. Tony came highly recommended to us by friends in the Charlotte area and it didn’t take long for us to see why! Tony’s immense knowledge of the area was extremely valuable to us as we prepared to move to a city we knew little about. He was prompt in getting back to us, never made us feel pressured during showings and didn’t bat an eye when our kids tagged along. In addition to being a genuinely fun and friendly person, Tony is passionate about real estate and is able to offer advice and opinions beyond simply buying/selling. Tony went above and beyond to make our first experience buying a home in North Carolina a great one and we highly recommend him!
I was the buyer agent on one of Tony's listings and thoroughly enjoyed working with him. Tony was responsive, professional, competent and remained calm even when the deal was potentially terminating. We ended up going under contract and closing on time due to a team effort. He is an asset to his team and I would love to work with him again in the future.
I've recommended Tony to everyone I know. He's a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. I realize it won't always be this easy to buy home, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal. Thanks again.
Tony was amazing to work with. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the market, recognizes quality construction, educated us on potential issues, and coached us through the offer and closing process. I would highly recommend Tony and his team.
Glenn and Shelley Brunker
Tony is simply an outstanding realtor! He is very engaging, professional, knowledgeable and approachable. His commitment and passion to invest in your personal home buying experience is remarkable. Although he knows the market exceptionally well, he allows you as the client to digest at your own pace and take action only when ready for you. I must say Tony is at the top of his game and will be an immense asset in your home search! I would highly recommend Tony......
Marc and Anne Lajeunesse
Tony was assigned to us by SIRVA relocation and from the moment we met him, Tony was the best of all possible brokers we could have had. Tony is an exceptional broker in all aspects; patient, attentive, great listener, thoughtfulness, detail conscious. He shepherded my wife and I through our purchase until even after the closing. We relocated from out of State and the experience was stressful enough but Tony was able to lower our stress levels several notches. Every detail from getting to know us, location, selection, final offer, negotiation, inspection, final walk through to closing went without a hitch. Tony is a professional through and through. It was our pleasure to have him as our agent. We will use him again without a doubt. Kudos to Tony. Tony and the Allen Tate Team were exceptional and my wife and I highly recommend them. Many thanks.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Anthony and his team! Being a first time home buyer, they guided us through the process and answered all our questions, big and small. We highly recommend them, and they will be our first call the next time we’re in the market.
Bob and Kate Bartleson
It's impossible to imagine having a better experience! We can't even think of the smallest suggestion for improvement in any area for Tony and his great team! While Tony works hard to build solid relationships and delivers a magical personal touch that could take pages to describe, we will keep this short so people will read it. Below are the key components we feel makes working with Tony so rewarding. * CLIENT FIRST APPROACH - Tony spent the first 1-2 hours getting to know us personally so he could best match locations (travel times, community preferences, amenities, home styles, etc.) and then demonstrated he actually listened as he took us around to homes and communities that matched us and our needs. He is very friendly and professional so we knew we were in great hands in finding the right home for us. His genuine concern for people has made him more than a great business partner, he is now a true and valued friend! * MARKET KNOWLEDGE - Tony constantly demonstrated his knowledge of the real estate market giving us valuable input on future values based on school districts, business expansion, housing demand, resale factors, and location to amenities, shopping, activities, and traffic congestion. As buyers with financial and investment backgrounds we found him to be as in touch with business trends as we were. * HOME INTEGRITY - Tony knows homes. He instantly spotted potential problems with landscaping (water runoff) brick and foundation integrity, building materials value and workmanship on both exterior and interior of the home--often spotting things we overlooked in spite of our care and diligence. * TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP SPECIALIST - Tony was able to accurately estimate any costs for repairs or remodels we discussed-before we made any offer! This was invaluable in helping us structure an offer that wasn't a disadvantage to us because we estimated costs too low, or being immediately dismissed by the seller as a serious buyer with an excessively aggressive offer because we estimated costs too high. * HONEST - Tony's expertise mentioned above would be worthless without his absolute adherence to "honesty is the best policy." He is willing to address the hard issues with candid empathy for his clients. Having taken the time to really know who they are he is able to intuit what is needed for their happiness and bring any concerns he has where his clients' decisions are not matching what he understand they really want. He isn't motivated by making the sale, but by delivering the best results for his clients. *WINNING TEAM - Tony has not only recruited the best team within his Allen Tate Group (shout out to Lynn Beaulieu), but he has also expanded his network to include the best inspectors, remodeling teams, insurance agents and basically anything needed to care for your home. Knowing we can trust Tony to deliver the best makes it easy to trust the people he trusts. Moving in from out of town, this has been invaluable. We are so impressed by Tony that we continue to seek his advice and contacts on things outside real estate as we seek to build a network of trusted, reliable, and highly competent professionals in the Charlotte area.
Lori and Will Littlefield
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Anthony for both buying and selling. Buying a house while living in another state is a very stressful process but having Anthony and his team working side by side with us made the process easy and stress free. Was willing to show us different areas both north and south so we could get an idea of what was going to best for our family. We were only able to make 1 trip down there and he made sure to have enough time to show us everything that we were interested in. Now selling a house has so much more stress . I couldn’t have ask for a better realtor to be on our side. Sold our house above asking price and handled all the moving parts associated with selling a house. He went well above what is expected from a realtor. He is definitely that agent that is very professional, always on time, very knowledgeable about the area and can definitely help with buying or selling. I would highly recommend him and use him again in the future.
Melisa K, Matt K
Tony was a great realtor to work with. Because we were out of state during the listing and sale of our home, he graciously checked on our property and helped with different maintenance issues needing attention. He is a trustworthy guy who does what he says and has the best interest of his clients in mind. He took the extra steps to close the sale of our home.
Extremely helpful and receptive to all of our needs and wants in searching for a house. Always looking at the things we don't think about and is able to give us very useful feedback
As a first time home buyer it can be a bit scary when you're unfamiliar with the home buying process and what issues to look for but thankfully we had Anthony who walked us through the process and made our experience as stress-free as possible. He was responsive, knowledgeable, dedicated and what stood out the most was at every tour he pointed out details of any issues that were present. Thank you for being honest! And always providing us with great information. We had an awesome experience!.
Working with Tony was a true pleasure for us. Since this is our first home, he took the time to explain everything in detail. He took the time to help us understand what we really were looking for in a house. Tony's level of patience has been nothing short of exceptional. We learned so much by working with Tony and we look forward to working with some of the resources that Tony has recommended. We were more than satisfied with everything Tony did to help us find our house and we will definitely recommend him to all of our family and friends who are looking to purchase a home.
Tony was great! He quickly understood what we were looking for and very effectively limited the houses we saw so we did not waste time. He knows the market and the neighborhoods, honestly pointed out issues rather than rushing us to buy, and eventually got us into a great house for us. When we were ready to make an offer, he gave great advice on framing it and moved quickly to close the contract. His office staff is also terrific - experts at what they do and very responsive. On top of all that, Tony is very pleasant and professional, we enjoyed his company in our search as well as his expertise.
Matt Sauer & Caiti Mulloy
Tony and the staff at Allen Tate were incredibly helpful at every step of the process. They were always just a quick phone call or email away and had every answer that I needed to make the experience much easier to deal with.
Couldn’t ask for a better experience! Tony is patient and so knowledgeable it really made this process simple! Moving to a new state is scary but I really felt supported and like he had our best interest at heart! Thank you Guys for everything it means so much to us! I would recommend Tony in a heartbeat, he knows the market so well and will be open honest and kind while your trying to find the right home for you!
Anthony, or Tony as my wife and I knew him as, was referred to us after the agent we had worked with for several months did not quite meet our expectations. The house had sat on the market for a while and we were both disappointed and frustrated especially as we were moving overseas. Tony's pleasant demeanor, professional attitude and excellent work ethic were reassuring to us that he was the right agent to sell our house. He responded to calls quickly and his determined focus helped us sell the house at a good price. We appreciated his candor and direct approach. You will not go wrong choosing Tony as your agent!
Having known Tony for about 6 years it was an easy decision to go with him when we were looking for our new home. He genuinely cares about the type of home and location you’re looking for and thinks of everything you’re not to make sure you find the right home. Many times his recommendations helped us ensure we got the home and the price we wanted. And if you want anything additional for your home I guarantee he knows someone that can help and he’ll get you that name in about 2 minutes. Couldn’t be happier with the whole process and couldn’t recommend him enough!
My experience working with Tony was incredible. He helped my husband and I close on our first home and I was amazed by the level of service provided by Tony and his team. As a first time home buyer I appreciated Tony’s professionalism and transparency as we navigated this process. His extensive knowledge about home building and the Charlotte market allowed us to select a home that was perfect for our family. I plan to use Tony as my agent for future transactions and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thank you again!
Second home I’ve purchased through Tony. As always, it was great working with him as he is very professional, diligent and personable. 5 Stars.
Andrew and Sarah Serafin
Tony is an exceptional realtor and goes above and beyond during every step of the home buying process. My wife and I bought our previous home with Tony and when it came time to sell it, there was no question who we were going to use. Tony was able to provide excellent guidance on preparing the home to sell and as a result, we booked over 20 showings and received multiple offers. As we transitioned to buying our new home, Tony was instrumental in talking us through some new neighborhoods that we had not considered before and ultimately helping us find our dream house. The amount of work Tony does behind the scenes truly indicates how he puts his clients first and I can't recommend him enough!
Cathy J Horton
Anthony (Tony) was an amazing person to work with in finding my new home. He was very knowledgeable of the area that I was considering and gave expert advice. Tony treated me as family understanding my real estate needs. He explained the process and was extremely patient and attentive to my questions and concerns. I was very blessed to have him as my real estate agent.
We just closed our 4th house with The Frantilla & Huss Team led by Anthony Frantilla. Our experience of working with this team just keeps getting better with time ! This time it took us almost a year to find a primary house meeting requirements of all family members. Tony was extremely patient and professional all throughout guiding us and providing the required advise. There were several houses which we were about to buy but then Tony paid attention to the details and cautioned us in our interest to rethink our decision. It is due to such experiences, Tony has earned the reputation of being our trusted advisor. The other differentiating factor in this whole experience is to have our realtor be accessible at times when we need him. Tony's response time is just exemplary. Lastly, the subject matter expertise of all aspects of home buying starting from inspection, mortgage, title, surveys, repairs, movers etc make Tony stand apart in our opinion. We have now given Tony another project to help us sell out old house ! Thank you Tony for all you do - we really appreciate it !
We met with Tony to determine if we should sell. He walked us through exactly what we needed to do and closed the deal quickly. There are always some stressors when buying and selling a property, but with his expertise and commitment to us, he made the process seamless. We highly recommend his services. He is knowledgeable, patience, listens and communicates effectively.
SUMEET & SHILPA DEY
Another outstanding experience working with Tony and Lynn at Allen Tate ! This was the first time we sold a house. Tony's guidance on appropriately pricing the house, making repairs in an apt manner and staging the house was exemplary. The house went on contract even before it started showing and created a new record in the neighborhood ! We will come back again to Tony when we have the need to buy or sell a house!
Tony and his team are top notch. From finding our home to closing on it, we felt comfortable the whole way with an efficient and professional team backing us up. Tony's take on house hunting, contract negotiation, and relationship building is refreshing. Relaxed, to the point and with an eye on what your family's needs are not just now, but through the life of the home you plan to buy. Happy we got to work with this group and look forward to doing so again as both our family and home needs grow!
Tony was amazing and I can't recommend him enough. My wife and I were first time home buyers and following the recommendation of a friend, we were extremely fortunate to connect with Tony. The level of service and expertise we received from Tony is unlike any experience we've had in the past.
From our first conversation with Tony the process felt genuinely one of a kind and unique - in addition to covering some of the necessities, Tony spent a considerable amount of his own time getting to know us for the sole purpose of making more informed recommendations and advice long the way. His knowledge of the area, local dining and entertainment, school systems, traffic patterns, comparable home values, and general construction is second to none. Additionally, and perhaps most impressive, was his network of subject matter experts and specialists. Tony not only took the time to educate us on a variety of topics and home improvement options, but scheduled visits with contractors to confirm/deny our observations about the property and help put together an assessment of potential costs. This was invaluable in not only the negotiations but for our own peace of mind in taking on the largest investment of our lives.
Most importantly, Tony was genuine, honest, and gave us all the confidence we needed in finding and eventually purchasing our first home. At no point did we feel pressured, rushed, or overwhelmed. Our experience with Tony was truly first class and I wouldn't dream of making a real estate decision in the future without consulting Tony.
For all of those reasons, Tony receives my highest recommendation and someone I would recommend to any friend or family member moving to the area.
Michael and Justin Malool
Give Tony a call, and after a few minutes his unparalleled knowledge, expertise, and professionalism is apparent. Meet with Tony, and you’ll instantly feel at ease with the daunting real estate journey ahead. Tony will be there for you and your family every step of the way. He’ll tailor the house hunting process to your unique wants and needs, while working for you day and night. Tony is well connected, experienced, and respected by all. When working with Tony you can relax and enjoy the process. Tony Frantilla is the real estate agent for all your needs and wants. He not only gained our trust, but exceeded our expectations throughout the entire process. We have found our dream home in Charlotte and could not have done it without Tony Frantilla! Thank you Tony! - Michael and Justin Malool
5 Stars! I just can't say enough good things about Tony Frantilla! He is personable, humble and smiles through the last minute asks! He has a great team and helped us better understand the market and appetites to price our home to its best advantage. He also helped us understand what buyers would want and we were able to have the house under contract within hours of it going live. Without Tony's counsel we may have priced ineffectively, made the wrong upgrade choices and missed out on a great sale experience. It was like having a friend looking out for us!
As first time home buyers, we were completely clueless to the process. Tony was incredibly patient with us from day one, and walked us through absolutely everything, even if it wasn’t necessarily his responsibility as our agent. He also always answered all of our calls and texts in a timely manner, and we reached out a lot! We felt really confident with any of Tony’s suggestions, and he even convinced us to open our search area and we ended up finding our house in an area we weren’t previously considering! Anyone should feel confident in working with Tony, and I will gladly recommend him in the future.
Tony found me the perfect first home. I had a really tight window to find a home and Tony crushed it. Found a home and closed within 40days!! Also, Tony is so knowledgeable about the market which ensured I wasn’t overpaying for the home. Will be my only realtor for sure.
Sarah and Marc Lajeunesse
Tony Frantilla and his team are absolutely amazing! As first time home buyers Tony walked us through the process from start to finish. Tony was patient, flexible and extremely knowledgeable while maintaining a good sense of humor throughout. We are going to recommend Tony and his team to everyone we know who have real estate needs.
Tony is always first class to work with. This is our second home purchase with him, fourth direct transaction and we have a fifth pending with the imminent sale of our current home. He does his homework and knows the immediate market. He always takes time to listen to concerns and desires, even with an existing relationship. His ability to remain calm and hold the course is especially helpful when the process can get kind of hectic, frantic, or someone on the client end maybe is getting "stressed out." The current market is odd to say the least but he kept this transaction as smooth as any other. We are hoping this is our "forever home" where we raise our family the next 20+ years. Should that not be the case, we will be contacting Tony when our needs arise and would recommend him to others in the Charlotte market.
Ryan and Jessica Quinn
Tony is hands down the best realtor we have ever worked with. He’s extremely knowledgeable, responsive and easy to work with. We purchased and sold a home with Tony, and both experiences were great. We would highly recommend Tony to anyone buying or selling a home.
Todd & Katie Horton
Working with Tony is great. This is our second transaction in the past month, third for our extended family over the past year and sixth, total, since we were connected. Hopefully we are "done" for a while but if we need a realtor, we are calling Tony and his team. We would highly recommend him for purchase or sales in the Charlotte Metro. He is always professional, knows the market and makes sure the details of the process are handled. I could go on but the easy answer is I'm calling Tony if I have a need and recommending him if anyone else does.
Tony is one of the hardest working people i know. This is the 2nd home he helped me with, and I recommend him to anyone I know in the market. I like working with Tony b/c he truly has my best interest in mind and will tell me the truth, even if it's something i don't want to hear. Thanks, Tony!
We have lived in 12 different states because of corporate relocations, yet we have never dealt with a more professional, intelligent, and diligent realtor than Tony. Throughout the process he was consistently knowledgeable, patient, informative and responsive. Further on multiple occasions he was able to anticipate our needs and proactively communicate to us to alleviate any and all concerns. He consistently went above and beyond to not only meet, but completely exceed all of our expectations. In the 2021 housing market, we are more than grateful that we had Tony representing us. And, we will continue to work with Tony on all future home purchases and sales.
Tony and The Allen Tate team is amazing. He is knowledgeable, trust worthy, and has been a pleasure to work with. The home buying/selling process can cumbersome, but they made every step of the way smooth in a unprecedented market.
Tony was awesome to work with. He kept me updated all along the way and was quick to follow up on any questions I had. I feel he went above and beyond any expectations I had.
Tony, once again, was a huge help for us and an absolute rock star. I don't know if anyone works as hard as he does. We never doubted we were in good hands. Tony has immense industry knowledge and always seems to understand the best approach. Can't recommend him enough!
Chris and Erica Shaver
Tony was phenomenal from start to finish for our first time selling! He gave us experienced guidance, and provided great vendor recommendations. He walked us through the whole process and is a wonderful agent in every aspect!
I was a mortgage broker for 7 years and now sell insurance. I was extremely happy with Tony Frantilla from the very first phone call. Extremely flexible, broke down the process and was not pushy even though when we first came down were looking to rent. I have passed out his cards to anyone I know that's in the market. I was very impressed in general with Allen Tate's service being a "one stop shop" as I obtained a mortgage and homeowners insurance through you as well. I would give Tony top scores across the board.
We patiently chose Tony and Allen and Tate after many interviews with a variety of agents and agencies. It was worth the wait to find Tony! He performed exceptionally throughout the process and is a consummate professional. Upfront he worked closely with my wife and I to discuss our requirements for our new home. He was flexible around our schedule as we were coming from out of town. He was very knowledgeable about the areas and personable in his approach which made us feel at ease during this transition. After the offer was in, Tony managed the post-sell process and kept us moving to close. The result was a very uneventful closing with no surprises.
The ideal agent makes buying a house easy. Tony does just that. He has a strong understanding of all elements of buying a house from loans, insurance, inspections, due diligence, appraisal and etc. Tony managed these parts of the process allowing the us to focus on finding our ideal home.
Michael Toth and Lauren Ballas
My wife and I moved to Charlotte about 2 years ago and had been renting on the North Side of Charlotte. After having a difficult time finding what we wanted on the North Side, we decided to start to looking into the South Side. We soon found that the South Side of the city is a huge buyers market and every time we found a house that we liked, it flew off the market quicker than we could arrange to even view it. We knew we needed someone with the right experience, connections, and personality to help us find our home. With me being a frugal guy in general, a consultant by trade, and an engineer by degree, coupled with my wife who is an interior designer, we knew we'd need some help. We came across Tony, he was a ROCKSTAR and exactly what we needed. Tony was very patient with us throughout the whole process and his knowledge and expertise in being a realtor, landlord, and handyman really shown through. He'll never admit it, but we had to be a bit hard to deal with, which he never really let get to him throughout our buying experience. Tony served as an impartial third party a majority of the time, it was almost like the guy didn't even want the "sale". There were a few instances when we were ready to make an offer and Tony urged us to take a step back and really analyze our decision. Ultimately, we purchased our dream home and it happened to be one that Tony highly recommended too. Exactly what you want in a realtor! During the offer process, he was also very knowledgeable, was able to help us in negotiations and was all together just a pleasure to work with. I urge you to please reach out to me and my wife if you have any questions about Tony, I would be more than happy to support my friend.
We have bought and sold 9 homes and Tony is the BEST we have ever worked with. Anthony took diligent notes regarding our needs and wants in a home. He is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale or to build. We ultimately decided to build our home and Tony was at every construction meeting and even took pictures for us during the building process as we lived out of state. He was also our Power of Attorney at closing as well (sorry about the writers cramp Tony!) Tony is a highly attentive and professional agent. His attention to detail in all aspects of the buying, building, and closing process is exceptional! He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. Anthony is also highly personable with an engaging personality. I will certainly be using Anthony in the future and recommending him to friends and neighbors wanting to buy or sell a home.
First time buying? Second or third? Look no further than Tony! He is the best partner, friend, and agent for you in the Charlotte area! His professionalism, knowledge, and connections truly surpassed all of my expectations! Not only is he quick to act, he is always available via text, phone, and email. He guided me through the entire process and calmed any fears I had. It's amazing and wonderful to have a realtor who has your best interest at heart – I was able to trust him 100% with this major milestone in my life. Words cannot express the gratitude and respect I have for Tony! He's simply a class act and MUST be your realtor! Tony – Thank you for helping me get my dream home, I simply could not have done it without you!
I don't have enough good things to say about Tony! In the past 2 years Tony has sold 2 houses for us and assisted us in purchasing one as well. His advice and help has been instrumental in us selling both houses quickly and then in purchasing the home of our dreams. He is extremely knowledgeable in the construction side as well. He was able to walk through both of our homes we sold and give us exact instructions on what needed to be "fixed" or improved. He also has a long list of contractors to help get those repairs done quickly and cost effectively. This helps on the purchasing side as well. In several of the homes we considered buying he was able to point out some serious "construction flaws" that could have cost us a fortune. He is very good at staying in contact and keeping you completely up to date about whats going on. He always answered our emails, texts, and phone calls in a timely fashion and was very easy to get a hold of. We plan on using Tony for all of our future real estate needs and I can't recommend him enough!
Amy and Kyle
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Tony. He was such a pleasure to work with, and in the 4 or 5 months it took to find out home I began to trust Tony's knowledge and opinions implicitly. He was equally as honest and vocal with his opinions as he was invested and optimistic about finding our first home. I was referred to Tony by two different people at my office, and I will no doubt be emphatically referring anyone I can to him in return. Thank you for everything, Tony!
Tony and his team are absolutely top notch. They really took the stress out of the selling process. With Tony's knowledge and expertise, we were confident every step of the way and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again and/or recommend him to others.
Michael & Sharin Ochotny
We have bought six houses now so we can say with confidence that Tony has been the most professional and knowledgable realtor we have ever worked with! Being new to the area he helped guide us through the process and made sure the purchase was totally beneficial for us and not his commission. We never had a realtor so involved in the construction process! It is with great satisfaction that we had the pleasure of working with Tony. He provided the assurance, knowledge and expertise we wanted in an agent. We can't say enough great things about Tony! We highly recommend Tony and feel confident in saying your experience will far exceed your expectations! We can't thank you enough Tony!! Michael & Sharin Ochotny
We have been through this process 4 times before, and have never experienced the level of professionalism, care and efficiency that we have with Tony and Renee of the Frantilla Huss Team! They are patient, and really want it to work to your best benefit, and do everything within their power to make that happen! So far, we have purchased our new home, and look forward to selling our old home! We will be recommending them to everyone! Thanks Guys! You ROCK!
Tony was simply AMAZING to deal with! He listened to everything we wanted and needed and he made sure we made the right decision to fit our family. His local knowledge and understanding of the market was outstanding. This is my 4th house to purchase and by far Tony has been the Best we have ever dealt with.
Tony Frantilla is fantastic – he is the first realtor that I’ve worked with whom I would consider a genuine teammate that I trust! Tony is very knowledgeable about the Charlotte market and trends in the area. We bought our home a year ago and love it – now we frequently marvel at how correct Tony was 12-15 months ago when providing us with insights into neighborhoods that we otherwise wouldn’t have known. Tony did not try to sell us just any home, but rather he attentively listened to our priorities and feedback, then shared with us his local knowledge to guide us into the home that would be best for our family - he was extremely successful and clearly differentiated himself from the majority of realtors out there. We are brand new to the Charlotte area and ended up relying heavily on Tony's guidance which was the correct thing to do with how objective and accurate he was for our family. Tony is the only realtor I recommend to others and the only person I will call when we sell our home!
