I would like to take this opportunity to thank Don O’Dell and his entire team at Allen Tate Mortgage for all of the time, assistance, hard work and help they offered during the process of purchasing our first home. They worked with our schedule and promptly answered any and all questions or concerns that we had. They made the whole process painless and stress free and they were able to help us find an AMAZING DPA (down payment assistance) program . I HIGHLY recommend Don O’Dell and his team with Allen Tate Mortgage to anyone in the home buying market. Again, THANK YOU!!
I am so thankful that I had the skill and expertise of Don O’Dell and his team at Allen Tate Mortgage to guide me through the mortgage lending process. Don and his team were extremely helpful and they always returned my calls in a reasonable time frame. Don kept me posted throughout the entire loan application process. He made me feel like I was his only client! I am also grateful for Don’s knowledge of the types of mortgages available. Don helped me obtain a North Carolina Advantage Mortgage which provided $15,000.00 in down payment assistance. I was not familiar with the program but it was a great blessing. I’m glad Don was looking out for my best interest! I am really enjoying my new home.
I have been totally blown away with how great Don O'Dell, Ari Noll and Maria Nowling have been during this home buying process. This will be the third home I have purchased over the past 6 years and this has by far been the best experience out of them all. The communication was concise and always to the point, the speed in which I got responses exceeded all expectations as well. I would just like to say that I could not have had a better team and they are the pure definition of professionals. I only wish that all potential home buyers could have the same experience I did and fully endorse the Allen Tate company for hiring such amazing people that not only care about their job but the people they work with too. Me and my family thank you from the bottom of our hearts and could not be happier!
Don & his team did a fantastic job. They worked with me and my family to identify options that would help us achieve our financial goals; they helped us navigate the minefield of application and documentary requirements, disclosures, and costs, and helped expedite a successful refinancing of our home, From our first contact with Don to the closing of the loan, Don and his team worked tirelessly on our behalf. They exhibited a high level of professionalism, knowledge, skill, and care for me and my family. They communicated with us clearly and frequently during the entire process, insuring its success.. Don and the team from Allen Tate exceeded my expectations!!!
Marcus & Sabrina Clarke
Don O'Dell and his team did an outstanding job throughout the entire financing process for our new home. The amount of information needed can seem overwhelming, but Don took the time to explain what was required and how to go about getting it. Thanks Don!
Don was a wonderful asset to have in our home buying experience! He is very knowledgeable with all of the current mortgage changes and answered our 100+ questions we had with the utmost patience and professionalism. We loved working with him and highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home!
Working with Don O'Dell at Allen Tate to purchase my new home was a great experience. Don is very friendly and made sure that I was very clear on every step of the process. I feel like he worked very hard to get the mortgage that was just right for me. I would highly recommend him to others.
Marchia and Warren Boone
Don and Ari were great to correspond and work with as a team. We were guided with cheerfulness and professionalism through the entire process. We highly recommend Allen Tate Mortage.
Mr. O'Dell and his team did everything to make my mortgage experience a pleasant one. I was out of town and everyone helped me with my tech challenges to ensure no delays. I would recommend this entire office to everyone! Sincerely, Sue Honeycutt
Mark N. Acerni
We are pleased to have the opportunity to share our extremely positive experience working with Don O’Dell and the entire Allen Tate Mortgage Team! Don was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional throughout the entire process. Both he and his entire team worked tirelessly in meeting all deadlines while bringing our mortgage to closure!
We couldn’t be happier with the end results achieved, and therefore offer them our highest recommendations!!
Don was wonderful! He helped me through every step of the loan process and was professional, kind, and full of knowledge.
Don and his team (Ari) worked dilligently to make sure that our mortgage and closing process went smoothly. There were a few times that things looked concerning, but without hesitation, the team worked effortleslly to move issues forward and work through the kinks. We had a great experience and would consider sending future home buyers to Don and team for servicing.
Don was a huge help in the process of buying my home. I couldn't ask for anyone better to do the job.
It was my true pleasure to have the opportunity to work with Don on the purchase of our home. Everything that Don said would happen did happen. His team was extremely responsive, proactive, and detail oriented. They took every opportunity to communicate and set clear expectations during the entire process. We truly could not be more pleased or felt more taken care of in the competent hands of Don Odell and Allen Tate.
Don is professional, courteous, and strives to give the fastest service possible. We enjoyed doing business with him.
Don and Ari were a pleasure to work with. They were very professional and responsive. With their knowledgeable and support, our loan process was a great experience. I would recommend this team to anyone with no reservations.
It was a blessing to have a company willing to assist there fellow man! Don Odell made this process painless and we are on our way to a new life here in Charlotte! People like Don need to be everywhere! Thank you for reducing our stress....!
Don was very thorough and knowledgeable. He and his team made everything as quick and easy as they could. really went the extra mile! I will definitely use them for future purchases.
Mr. Don O'Dell is a true professional. He demonstrated expertise as it pertained to the financial and business matters of the home buying process. He is cordial and explains terms and processes in an understandable manner. He helped to make my home buying experience relatively stress-free. Although, he is a father full-time, he found time to be assistive throughout the course of the day to a new homebuyer.
It was a pleasure working with Don on my recent purchase. Having to do all the work by phone, etc. can sometimes be quite a challenge, he handled everything very well and made me feel very comfortable answering my many questions.
Don was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful trough my mortgage loan process. Don always took the time to answer and explain any questions i had throughout the process. One thing i really appreciated the most about Don was his willingness to still talk to me and assist me long after business hours were over. That went along way with me personally. I would definitely recommend Don to others.
Don worked with my wife and I to secure a mortgage for a quick close. We were able to secure the mortgage in a very expeditious manner, much faster than using a large bank. We would highly recommend utilizing Don's expertise, and you will appreciate his help and support along the way.
Personally I had very good experience working with Don for my Home Loan process. He was very patient, clear and helpful throughout the process. The quality of customer service provided by him and his team has been excellent.
Don was the saving grace in purchasing our home. He explained everything in clear and concise language. He always explained my options and the pros and cons of every decision we made during this process. I could ask him questions about the any step in the buying process because I trusted his answers most. I would recommend Don to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy financier.
Don O'Dell was very easy to work with. My experience was excellent. Would recommend his service to anyone purchasing a home.
Jennifer & Jeromy Fowler
Don and Ari are both very professional and great to work with. My REFI went smoothly, as they made it easy with a step-by-step process. I received email updates with every milestone. I enjoyed working with them and I highly recommend both of them. Thank you Ari and Don!!
Don and his assistant Ari were both amazing from the start. I had originally started my process with another mortgage company who dropped the ball on me. My real-estate agent recommended that I talk with Don. His assistant, Ari, gave me a call that day. We started the process. It was definitely a process as I had a few things that needed to be fixed on my credit. Don and Ari worked with what I had and came up with a game plan. I did exactly as they asked and followed the game plan to a T. A month and a half to 2 months later, we were able to move forward with the pre-approval. The process was seemless. Ari sent me everything I needed to provide her and explained anything and everything I had a question on. And now I am closing in two days. Both of them have been available to me throughout the whole process and kept an open line of communication the whole time with me. They really kept my nerves at bay because of their knowledge and willingness to be there for me when I had concerns and questions. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to get a mortgage. They are a great team and were really great to work with!
Don O'Dell is a very professional and respectful Senior Mortgage Consultant at Allen Tate Mortgage Services. He and his team worked extremely hard and efficiently to prequalify us to buy the appropriate house for our needs. Then they really went to work to communicate all the steps needed to get the "Clear to Close". I would highly recommend Don and hope to be able to work with him when we are ready to look to the next move.
I can't speak highly enough of my experience working with Don O'Dell and Ari Noll. Throughout my adult years and as a real estate investor, I have had the experience of purchasing a few different houses and working with a multitude of great people. Don and Ari can now be added to the list! Throughout the past several months, Don was there every step of the way brimming with confidence that we would be able to get the deal closed on another purchase I had interest in. He answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. His professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. As a man that is high on relationships, trust, integrity and loyalty, Don has succeeded in exceeding my expectations and I would highly recommend him to anyone that is searching for a new home.
Don O'Dell was absolutely superlative in assisting me with the servicing of my loan. He provided me with very knowledgeable and expert financial advice. Don was always extremely prompt and courteous in getting back to me--I never had to wait more than 24 hours to hear back from Don when I needed him--most of the time he got back to me within a couple of hours of my initial contact. His care, attention to detail, and commitment to providing outstanding service was just fabulous! A consummate professional like Don is a very rare find these days-- he is the type of individual who really goes the extra mile when it comes to his clients. I look forward to my next home purchase and to the opportunity to work together with Don again. He made a task that for the homebuyer can be daunting, burdensome and frustrating--smooth, seamless and as easy as pie. Kudos Don. Thank you again. YOU ARE AWESOME!!
Working with Allen Tate services was as outstanding a process as we have ever experienced. From sales through mortgage we cannot imagine a better outcome or better professionals to depend on through the process of both selling and buying a home. We cannot recommend this company or their people to the level deserved. We have had many experiences with home selling/buying and none have been near the level of service we received.
Great mortgage experience.
Everything went well. Have no complaints
Don and his team were amazing to work with. They did everything possible to make the mortgage application and process as easy as possible, and they were always in touch, with prompt responses to any questions I had. I would highly, highly recommend Allen Tate Mortgage to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Fred J Apel
I was very pleased with the process of getting a mortgage through Mr.O'Dell. He and his staff were very easy to work with. It was quick and they treat you in a professional manner.
Don was great to work with, he was very personable and professional. He was able to help me obtain a loan for my first home. He was very informative and always kept me informed of what was going on during the loan process. Don and Ari we give you a 10! Thanks for all your help.
Hello Don. Before this loan processes, I have been through two others. Don, was very professional and made me feel like I was his "only" client. From a personal standpoint, he kept me calm through the entire process, LOL! At closing, I actually got a chance to meet him guy. Allen Tate sold both of my homes. My overall experiences have been the best! Thanks, again Don, I loooooooooooove my new home. Peace and Blessings, Pamela
HI.I just want to thank the whole allen tate team.you guys really are AWESOME.
Being in the mortgage business I understand customer service. From the time I applied for my loan to close Don was there every step of the way. Thank you for making this a great experience. Joni
Don is AWESOME!!!!! He gave great advice and helped me choose the best mortgage for my needs. He's not just a 9-5 guy. I could reach out Don any time of day and he was quick to respond. I would highly recommend Don.
My experience was the best I have had buying a home. I also thought the communication was absolutely fantastic. Thanks again for all of the hard work.
Theresa and Bruce McDonald
Don and Ari were proactive every step of the way. Don was very knowledgeable about what we would require with our particular sources of income and tax reporting - one self-employed, one W2. Their conduct was professional throughout. Our file was ready for closing almost a week before closing - the Allen Tate Mortgage processing team rocks!
Meredith and Darrell Humphrey
Buying a home can be extremely stressful, however, Don O'Dell and his team helped my husband and I through every step of the mortgage process. We had a few difficult hurtles that we had to overcome and Don and his team were always positive and made sure our closing went off without a hitch. If we move again (hopefully that will be a long time in the future) we will definitely use Don and his team. Thanks Don for everything!
Harold and Valerie Griffin
From the beginning of our process Don hand carried us to the purchasing of our home! He gave us specific direction to help make this tedious process as painless as possible! We aren't sure if anyone else could have been more supportive or encouraging! One word describes our experience and that would be "exceptional". Thanks again Don!
Don and his team made the mortgage process very easy for us. They explained every step and kept us well informed throughout the whole process. And we got a great deal! I highly recommend Don and Allen Tate Mortgage.
Franklin A. Swearngan
THE ENTIRE PROCESS WENT VERY SMOOTHLY, HE HAS AN EXCELLANT STAFF AND FELLOW ASSOCIATES WORKING WITH HIM. EVERY ONE WORK EXTREMELY WELL WITH ME AND ALL THE PAPERWORK WITH ALL THE ENQUIRES FOR INFORMATION WENT SMOOTH IN A TIMELY MANNER. I WOULD RECOMMEND OTHERS TO CONTACT DON FOR MORTGAGE LOANS. SINCERELY, FRANKLIN A. SWEARNGAN
Don worked very hard to get our mortgage together in a very short amount of time!
Dr. Larry Jones and Vanessa Jones
From the very beginning, Don prepared us for the rigorous and laborious process of home financing. He engaged in frank conversations with us about our credit ratings, finances and spending habits thereby giving us clear direction on how much home we could afford. When we found the home of our dreams, we were very motivated to buy and Don went to work to find us the best percentage rate and terms. He found us a great percentage rate on our loan amount but just about two weeks before closing, we had a change in employment that created a problem. We thought that all the work that we had put into obtaining each and every document requested, every anxious and expectant moment, was a bust! We thought that our dream home was no longer a reality but Don came through for us!! He understood how much owning this home had meant to us. Don worked with the underwriters, had discussions with them about our good credit and excellent job history, and phoned us within a few days to say the loan was approved! Not only was the loan approved but at a great percentage rate! We highly recommend Don Odell as a mortgage consultant. He is personable, a good listener and, considering how he helped us in the eleventh hour with the underwriters, he is a great communicator too!
As Janet and I settle in, just a word of thanks for being a part of our downsizing dream. Our part of the entire process was seamless in part due to your professionalism and dedication. Once again, thank you!
Linda and I would like to thank you again Don for all of your help on obtaining our home loan recently. It was very eye opening and trying for us for the potential buyers of our house to back out twice. But you kept our hopes and spirits up with your understanding and advise. With your expertise and explaining the different loan scenarios, we really enjoyed working with you and Ari during the loan process. Linda and I would wholeheartedly recommend you to anybody looking for a mortgage or refinance. We would be glad to discuss our super experience with any potential customers you may have. Thank you again Don for helping us get our dream home. Greg and Linda Honeycutt
Don has already done a great job for my clients so of course I trusted him with my personal refinance. Through our loan refinance, he was thorough, knowledgeable, and truly made the process as easy as possible. The closing document were ready a few days in advance of our closing and the closing figures were right in line with what he told us to expect. We would not use any other lender for our personal needs and I will continue to recommend Don to my clients as well.
Excellent, a job well done.
Sydney and Trevor Bentley
I had originally applied and was approved for a mortgage through Bank of North Carolina. The mortgage agent there was terrible. He never thoroughly answered my questions. I was even ignored for weeks. I often had to email him 2-4 times to get a response. My real estate agent recommended Don after hearing about the service I was receiving. Don and his assistant Ari were absolutely wonderful and honestly saved me from so much frustration and stress. I only wish that I had found them first. Our situation was a little different because we were using NC Housing to assist with our down payment. I never received and "I don't know" or "Let me get back to you". They were always quick to answer my questions and were so knowledgeable about my loan. More importantly, I was never ignored. Don and Ari took the stress out of applying/closing on a mortgage. Mortgages aren't easy, but they made it a breeze. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! I will definitely recommend them to anyone looking to by a home loan.
Don O'Dell, Ari Noll, and the entire Allen Tate Mortgage team were fantastic to work with on my mortgage. They made a normally stressful process very easy. I especially appreciated how they kept me completely informed and up to date from initial consultation thru closing. I strongly recommend Allen Tate Mortgage.
Don and Ari were incredibly helpful during every step of the process.
Liz and Randy Rivera
Don O'Dell was extremely professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire home buying experience. Being first time home buyers, we couldn't imagine not having the expertise of Don and his staff readily available to answer all of our questions throughout the buying process. We highly recommend Don when selecting an experienced and insightful lending professional.
The Don O'Dell team was excellent. It was our first time buying a house and everyone was very helpful in walking us through the process. Everyone was patient, responsive, and able to address our concerns. Don even came to our closing and we shared some laughs. I definitely recommend the Don O'Dell team.
Don, Ari, and team made our home buying experience easy, smooth, and painless. Thanks!
It was great to work with Don, who worked with us from start to finish. He and Ari Noll were immensely helpful for us as first time homebuyers. I can't imagine we would have made it to closing with so few hiccups if we had gone with someone else! I highly recommend working with Don, Ari, and the team at Allen Tate.
George E Henderson
Through the entire lending process on my personal home Don and Ari were meticulous and focused. I had periodic updates through emails and personal contacts, especially when the package went to processing and then to underwriting. Don and Ari are known for getting the loan package to the attorney before the closing date. Our loan package was at the attorneys office several days before the closing! They did an outstanding job and I recommend Allen Tate Mortgage to all the buyers I work with.
Don O'Dell was extremely professional and responsive throughout. He and his team found us a great rate and explained everything all through the process. There were no glitches on their end. Overall, their knowledge, teamwork, and responsiveness was impressive, and something we expected from using Allen Tate Mortgage. We highly recommend Don and Allen Tate Mortgage team, and can assure you that they have the knowledge and dedication to get your loan through.
Don, Ari, and the entire Allen Tate team were knowledgeable, professional, and informative. I never asked a question that was not promptly answered. They let me know from the beginning what was expected of me, and they kept me updated throughout this surprisingly smooth process of obtaining my loan. This team runs like a well oiled machine. Thank you so much! Keep up the great work. -Sheri
Don is a great person and excellent professional. He is someone that is highly cooperative, transparent and driven for results. He works on an environment that creates trust in people. I'm very glad that our house path did cross with him in this journey that we are just begining. Thanks a lot Don, and we are delighted with the Custumer Experience you did provide.
From Beginning to end, Don and his team were with me, leading me through the purchasing process. Ensuring that every detail was taken care of and in a timely manner. I couldn't ask for a better experience in purchasing a home. Thanks Don for all you did for us. Betsy Hidalgorojas
I recently purchased a home in Wingate NC. My experience with the people at Allen Tate's W WT Harris office was EXCELLENT. It all started with Roger and Dexter as I got acquainted with the area; then Don for qualifying and beginning the mortgage process to Ari, Keith and Tara as well as Zach and Dawn for the home and car insurances. I can't say enough positive things about this team of professionals. If you are looking for real estate, the best thing you can do for yourself is to meet with these people.
Don and his team at Allen Tate did a great job. I would recommend their services to anyone needing a home loan.
Ken and Linda White
Very pleased with the service we received. If we had questions or an issue they were taken care of right away. We never had to wonder when someone would get back to us, it occurred very quickly. My only problem was the address of the closing, my document had the Southpark location but it was actually the University location. Attorneys office handled that very well and we were taken care of very professionally. We were impressed. Thank you for taking us through each step of the process.
Bob & Alice Ault
Absolutely a pleasure to work with --- everyone very professional, courteous and helpful even to those that do not have the best of computer skills. This has been the easiest mortgage process - even with the VA. Don and the Staff go out of their way to accommodate you. Everything completed quickly Thank You to everyone !! Bob & Alice Ault
Don was very very Helpful, gracious, patient and understanding. He put up with me (Jean)giving him and Ari a hard time. WE ARE VERY SATISFIED WITH THE SERVICE WE HAVE RECEIVED from them.
Great experience! Would highly recommend Don for financing a new home or refinancing.
Ari and Don were great, responsive, and helpful. They made my loan application experience smooth and simple!
Don was wonderful to work with at Allen Tate. He answered all questions, gave us multiple scenarios to find the best deal, and always respected our wishes. I would highly recommend Allen Tate for real estate purchases and mortgages.
Don & Ari,
Please accept my sincere gratitude for your help during the purchase of my first home! Your professionalism and communication made me feel at ease. As a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions, which you both answered wholeheartedly and gave me a peace of mind!
I am thankful that I chose Allen Tate. I knew I was in good hands and would be educated with sound judgement about the process of buying a home. The whole process was streamlined from beginning to end and I appreciate all the hard-work it took to make sure we made the closing deadline.
I want to especially thank Ari for the daily status updates and for her patience with me getting all those documents wet signed!
You guys did an outstanding job!
Marissa and Nate Donovan
Don and Ari made the mortgage process as smooth as could be. Being first time home buyers, we were pretty in the dark about everything and they helped us through it all with ease. Definitely would recommend them to anyone looking!
My first home buying experience was the most easiest and smoothest process. From the beginning to the end, my lender and realtor worked diligently to ensure I got what I needed and I stayed informed. Don, Mechell, Ari and Zach are an amazing group of people. I am happy that I chose Allen Tate to service my family and I. I will do business with you all again in the future. I am beyond pleased that my expectations were exceeded. Don and Mechell are a match made in Heaven. They stayed aligned throughout the process. I would most definitely recommend.
Great service! Highly recommend Don and team!
I have worked with Ari and Don for many years from the agent perspective and they have always done an outstanding job. This time my husband and I were the buyers. Our experience was terrific! Don is super knowledgeable about the process and gave great advice. Ari was easy to communicate with and had very timely updates for us. The two of them are an excellent team! I knew they always did a great job for my clients, and the same was true when it was my time to buy a new home. They helped make the process as easy and painless as possible and were always on top of things. Thank you for helping us to buy our dream home!
Don was a pleasure to work with. Always prompt and provided excellent customer service throughout the entire process. I will turn to Don first for any future transactions and refer him to anyone looking.
Ours was not a simple finance, with new obstacles popping up almost daily. Don managed to help us stay calm and work through each change smoothly.
Angela and Justin
Don was a pleasure to work with. He thoroughly explained our paperwork. He was very professional and knowledgeable. Ari was also very helpful in getting through the process. Thanks always Don and Ari. We would definitely recommend.
It was a very pleasant business relationship with the Allen Tate Mortgage Company. The staff, (especially Ari Noll) were very helpful and clear with their communications and expectations from you with regards to what documentations you are expected to compile as required to complete your loan. They took me by the hand and helped me step by step of the way. An incredible team of finance personnels. I absolutely recommend Allen Tate for you mortgage need.
I found Don fairly randomly, as I was looking for lenders who worked with the NC Down Payment Assistance program. From the NCDPA website, there was a list of lenders, and Allen Tate was one. It wasn't the first one, and I had no true reason to pick Allen Tate (other than perhaps brand awareness), but I'm so glad I did! Don was fantastic and knew all the ins and outs of not only the traditional home-buying process, but also the NCDPA program. I had some struggles and hurdles to overcome at the onset, but Don was very willing to help me figure out what I needed to do in order to clear them. He helped me take the fullest advantage of the program, and got me the loan that was fit for my needs. I'm grateful to have had Don, Ari, and the rest of his team help me out, and will look for them when I'm purchasing the next home!
Emily K. Warren
From the first time I picked up the phone to call Don, he was on top of things. He was very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions I had. The whole process was smooth, due to him and his assistant, Ari, always being on top of documents, deadlines and to-do's. A great team to work with!
BJ and Cindy Newkirk
It was an extreme pleasure working with Don and his loan assistant Ari Noll. My wife and I recently purchased a condo in Charlotte. Our previous experiences with mortgage applications was tedious and downright painful. Right from the start, our experience with Don and his team was totally unique and pleasurable. They made the process personal and easy. Their knowledge and communication was fantastic and thorough. Ari knew our home in Florida was in the path of Hurricane Irma and constantly inquired as to how we and our home were doing. Don, although it was not necessary, came to the closing to make sure it went smoothly. I would recommend Don and his team to anyone in need of a mortgage company.
Greg & Melissa Wellman
Don O'Dell, Ari Noll and the rest of the Allen Tate team were fantastic! They anticipated my family's every question, and helped make the purchase of our dream home a possibility.
Juan A. Garay
The service provided by Don and Ari was extraordinary! Throughout the entire process they were both understanding, knowledgeable, and were always on top of everything. The response time for questions that I had was very fast. Not once did they seem impatient or frustrated over the many questions that I had as this was the first home I have purchased. The closing date was able to be met sooner than we expected and the rates were the best that I found throughout the market. I would definitely recommend Don and Ari to anyone. Great job and I can't thank you enough for the superior service that was provided to me.
(Floyd) Dave Mueller
Don and his team were GREAT! They went above and beyond in their service and communications. I would highly recommend Don, Ari, and the rest of his team!
Don, Ari, and Beatrice were wonderful to work with! Ari was always on top of what was happening and guided me through the process from start to finish. Don was available any time I needed to contact him and was able to help me understand the different aspects of the loan process. What a fantastic team!
Chris Frost & Eric Schneider
Don has been exceptional throughout our entire mortgage experience. From initially meeting with us on Saturday, to taking the time to attend our closing, he has been ahead of the game at every step. We have financed several homes in the past and this process has been the easiest and most organized of them all. Great work Don & team at Allen Tate Mortgage!
Anne & Larry Brown
We were very pleased with the service from Don O'Dell and Ari Noll at Allen Tate Mortgage. I comparison shopped and found a mortgage with better terms elsewhere and Don was able to match their terms. As with any mortgage transaction, there were a lot of requests for information, but Ari made that as painless as possible and was patient explaining exactly what information was needed. Lastly, the closing was SO easy since our realtor was also with Allen Tate (shout out to Austin Dantzler) as was our homeowners' insurance agent (Zach Ligon). We really appreciated the seamless process and that we didn't have to handle the time-sensitive communications between all these parties.
Don was very professional and friendly. Very knowledgeable with his craft. Don and his staff work definitely as a team and were prompt with any questions I had. Would recommend them to anyone.
Fantastic service! Easy and thorough all the way through! Thank you so much!
Our experience with Don O'Dell and Ari Noll was absolutely great. Great professionals, friendly, knowledgeable and they work to make it easier for and on the customer. I would and will definitely recommend this team to family and friends looking to buy a home.
Don and Ari were extremely helpful and informative throughout the entire process, and delivered on all of their commitments and timing of service. I will definitely use them again in the future.
Don and Ari's hard work and attention to detail allowed me to put together an offer for some buyers that had a shorter than normal Due Diligence Period. We were in a multiple offer situation and had to present a strong offer with a quick closing. Their expert guidance and setting of clear time lines through the process with the buyers helped to get this transaction closed on time with no issues. I could not have gotten this done without my mortgage partners Don and Ari. Thank you for another wonderful mortgage experience
Excellent service, made the home buying process easier than buying a car. Thanks!
Don O’Dell and his team had done fantastic job. I had excellent experience working with them. They helped me with paperworks and schedule the closing. Those made them smooth process. Thank you for your hard working in helping a client like me. I will recommend my friends to them. Thank you.
Don did an excellent job explaining all the loan options and then following through on all the little details. His support team did not miss a beat and were always there to answer questions
Working with Don and the Allen Tate team was a great experience. Communicating at every step in a timely manner and responding to my questions with knowledge and expertise. I would definitely recommend a friend give the team a try!
As a first time home-buyer, I was a little nervous and unsure of the whole process, but Don and Ari were so helpful and answered any questions I had. They were always quick to respond and on top of things!
DeWitt & Martha Whitten
With the quick sell of our house in Concord and the buyers wanting a quick closing date (less than 4 weeks) we approached Don how to try and streamline the process of preparing to buy a house more than 50 miles away which we had not even found yet. We began to provide the paperwork that Don would need and after almost a week we found a house and made an offer. With the closing of the house we sold in Concord scheduled for June 21 the seller of the house we found requested a closing date of June 22. Between agents and Don & Ari, we were emailing and docu-signing and trading phone calls almost constantly it seemed over next week to ten days. Everything worked out, we closed on both houses as scheduled. Many thanks to Ari and Don for the hard work and coordination to bring everything together for us.
Xiaoxia and Steve Newton
We just bought our dream house with the great help from Don and his team. We had two wonderful realtors who connected us with Don. Don walked us through the process and generated a very helpful/clear to-do list. We were able to close without a hitch and in a timely manner. Throughout the entire process, we found Don and his team professional, friendly, helpful, and easily accessible when we had questions and/or need help. I recommend them to anyone who needs to search for and buy a dream home. Five stars service!
Xiaoxia & Steve Newton
A shout out also goes to Don's excellent team members: Ari, Beatric, Krytal, and Patty!
Fantastic customer service on all ends. Very smooth and simple process from start to finish! Could not have asked for a better first-time home buying experience.
We purchased our new condo on Lake Davidson without ever seeing it in person. Our realtor recommended Don and he was great to work with, available and knowledgeable especially working with us out of state. I wouldn't think twice about calling him again when the need arises. His office staff was very helpful and customer friendly.
Don and Ari were great with guiding our family through the home buying process.

Thank you once again and Great Job!
Evonne & Greg Galloway
Don and Ari were great. They kept us up to date on the process and made the application process easy.
Don was amazing. During the whole process he was quick to answer any questions I had for him. He explained everything clearly and made everything seem so simple while trying to purchase my house. Thank you

We have had nothing but great service with Don O'Dell. This is our second mortgage we did with Don O'Dell & Ari Noll with Allen Tate Mortgage and we were very pleased from start to finish with the process both times . Smooth, Fast & very attentive to everything that had to be done. We would recommend Allen Tate Mortgage to anyone who wants to get a mortgage. Don was the best ! Thank you Don & Ari for everything Mike & Gail Barra
Working with Don, Ari, and their team makes home buying an enjoyable, and pleasing experience. They worked on two home purchases for us, and we are planning a third. I wouldn't think of working with anyone other than them.
Robert A. Grindle II
Don and team were very helpful through my home purchase process. He was able to answer all of my questions and review all of the best options for me, all in record time to close.
Don O'Dell and his team at Allen Tate--especially Ari Noll--were extremely helpful in guiding my wife and I through the mortgage approval process and, later, the closing on our new home. They willingly shared their extensive expertise, alerting us about what we should expect and when we should be expecting it, and answered all of our questions through the home-buying process. They're both efficient and proficient, two qualities that a first-time North Carolina home-buyer truly appreciates. Thank you once more, Don and Ari, for your time, patience and assistance. We love our new home!
My family and I would like to thank you for all of your help during the loan process. Your hard work and dedication to our loan paid off in the end and enabled us to get into our new home. Anyone I know who needs a home loan will be calling you first! I know that you will take care of them as well as you did us. Thanks again, Don!
Efficient, thorough, exceptional service! He and his friendly staff were easy to reach and always willing to help. I highly recommend Don and his team!
Don and Ari are consummate professionals who put in the hours it takes to get their clients documented and through the mortgage process. What could have been stressful was smooth. We appreciate their expertise, intelligence and humor. Don provided all the information and numbers we needed to make informed decisions. Ari was always available by email or phone to walk us through the various processes.
I would like to thank Don and Ari for the exceptional experience they gave me with obtaining a mortgage for my condo in Cornelius, North Carolina. They answered all my questions professionally and with a great deal of experience and knowledge. They always got back to me when I called and made me aware of any documents that were coming my way to sign. Even with the amount of paperwork, the two made it a pleasurable experience. I would recommend them to anyone who asked!
Don was very helpful throughout the entire process. He stayed in contact with me to make sure I was on schedule. He was very easy to work with! I would recommend him to anyone buying a home. He made my experience as a first time home buyer very easy.
Good team. Great Job!
Don was exceptionally professional, easy to work with and made the entire process go smoothly. We really appreciated his communication with us and with our realtor, Mitch Mace. Having purchased five homes, this was by far the best experience. Both Don and Mitch are superstars in their field. I would recommend both any day. Thank you Don!
John and Misty Johnson
Working with Don O'Dell and his Allen Tate Team was a pleasant experience. They were very professional, excellent communicators, and very efficient with time management. We closed in less than a month from the time we made the offer. AMAZING! We highly recommend Don O'Dell and Allen Tate for all your real estate and mortgage needs! John and Misty Johnson
Don was amazing to work with when buying my first home. He answered my (many) questions thoroughly using language I could understand. He was incredibly responsive and followed through on everything he said he was going to do. Don and his team were a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend working with them.
I was faced with a situation where I had to find a new place quickly to move to from where I had been renting for the past 20 years. I contact a Michele Hobaugh who I knew was in the real estate business. She told me to start packing immediately and connected me with an amazing professional group of individuals. I can’t thank all the folks at the Allen Tate Company for helping me secure my first home ownership in such a timely manner. I extend my gratitude to Michele Hobaugh, who was outstanding in coordinating this process and calming my anxieties about the process. I also graciously thank Bryant and Tinamarie Hinson of Home Advantage Realty in Columbia, SC for their hard work and outstanding coordination of the whole process, even negotiating my closing date up to a reasonable date. Moving in the situation I was in was extremely difficult and exhausting and I could not have done it without all the individuals mentioned above and all the wonderful friends who stepped up to assist.
Don and his team have done two mortgages for me now, and I wouldn't know what I would do without them. He and his team make everything very easy, and prompt in making things happen. I wouldn't want to use anyone else.
Working with Don and Ari was a fantastic experience. From the onset, Don provided answers to all of my questions and I felt zero pressure. Once the refinance process started, Ari provided clear instructions to assist with the required paperwork. Overall, they made the entire refinance process completely seamless and easy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their expertise to family or friends.
We would highly recommend Don O'Dell and Allen Tate Companies. They were truly wonderful to work with. Everyone on the team made things so easy for us, kept us in communication regarding every aspect of our loan process, and were so on top of everything. It was a really wonderful experience, with no hassle. I can't recommend them highly enough. We will definitely be using them again next time.
Stephen and Danielle Disch
This is our third time working with Don and Ari and there isn't enough good things I can say! They literally go above and beyond and are so incredibly honest! They were always so extremely patient and kind with my million questions and ALWAYS made sure i understood fully what was being told to me. I cannot go without saying Don got us the BEST interest rate EVER, even the lawyer at closing was impressed! I recommend Don, Ari and everyone at Allen Tate a million times over!
Don and Ari were a dream to work with! They made the process as easy and seamless as possible and I’d recommend working with them!
We received excellent customer service. Our questions were always answered in a timely manner. Whenever documents were requested they were processed promptly. Don and his assistant Ari were the best!! I HIGHLY recommend Don O'Dell for your home mortgage needs.
Don O'Dell and his crew are exceptional Mortgage Brokers. They found us the most competitive rates, and made the home-buying experience seamless and satisfying. I have been actively encouraging all my friends, family, and colleagues to use Allen Tate Mortgage and Realtors in their home buying / selling endeavors. Thank you for helping us finance our beautiful first home!
It was a great experience. Everything was done expeditiously.
Zach Seivers and Setu Raval
Don and Ari were such a pleasure to work with. They made the entire process so incredibly easy and intuitive and we are grateful for their care and support from start to finish.
Amy & Brian Baker
Don & Ari make a great team. My husband and I are both Realtors and there is no other team we would consider for our mortgage loans. They offer a great selection of loan options, low rates & fees, and Don is always open to thinking outside the box to find the perfect mortgage solution for each client. This is our 3rd or 4th loan with Don's & his team and each one is easier than the last. We can count on Don to close for us on time and as experienced Realtors, we know that presenting an offer with a pre-approval letter for Don is a huge strength that helped us get our offer accepted. Perfect mix of excellent rates, superior customer service, and a personal approach to one of your biggest financial decisions.
This was the 2nd time we worked with Don and Ari . They both are fabulous from start to finish. It was a stress free experience, which is very helpful and important for us busy working professionals. Thank you both.
Jumping into this house buying experience with a toddler, one on the way and two new jobs was overwhelming to say the least. Add to the fact that Steve and I shut down when we look at numbers of any kind....All that to say that your patience, sense of humor, tenacity and kindness while working with us meant so much. We even began to enjoy the process. You will always be part of our story of finding a home for our family. You're very good at what you do! Gratefully, Eve, Steve, and Ethan
Don O'Dell and Ari Noll were absolutely essential to our success as new homeowners. Don and Ari were in constant communication with our family and realtor and always took the time to explain documentation needed in detail before providing a DocuSign request. No matter what time of day, we always felt comfort knowing that we could contact either party via phone or e-mail and receive a prompt response. What I appreciated most about this team was the marked experience and communication skills. Don gave us numerous loan options from the very beginning of our home buying process, was able to break down any complicated issue to layman's terms with ease and resolved emerging issues quickly and efficiently. We also appreciated Don's presence at our closing - it was an act of kindness that we know you would not receive with any other company. We would recommend this team to anyone interested in the future. Thank you for your hard work and support!
Don and Ari were great to work with. They talked/walked me through anything that I did not understand. They were very patient with me when I had questions or did not understand. There were times when I overlooked requests that were made and the were very patient and understanding. I was very pleased with them! Thanks Don and Ari, you're the best!
Don & Ari were incredible throughout my process of obtaining a mortgage. Responses were always immediate and the process was extremely smooth. MortgagEase was very user-friendly. They also educated me so that I could understand the mortgage underwriting process. In addition to the quality work they performed, they were friendly and I could tell they were excited to help me.
Working with Don and his team was an amazing experience. His assistance working through all the choices and making good decisions was invaluable. Great experience. Can’t say enough about Ari and her knowledge with documents, patience, and willingness to make this an easy and simple experience. Her commitment to help is outstanding and essential for a enjoyable experience. Enjoyed working with this team and give them more than 5 stars if that was a choice. Thanks Stewart and Loretta Edwards
Don and Ari were amazing during our entire mortgage process. They were quick to respond to any questions that my wife and I had. Their communication and ability to explain complex things in a simple manner made the home buying process very easy. Thanks!
Don and Ari were excellent in helping us with our loan process. We were able to secure a great rate for our home and close right on schedule, despite COVID19 causing disruptions worldwide at the same time. I would highly recommend them for helping you with your loan.
I was very extremely satisfied with Don O'Dell and his assistants during my mortgage process. They kept in touch regularly and helped me navigate all of the documents and papers involved. I would have been lost without their help through my buying process. I would recommend Allen Tate Mortgage to anyone purchasing a new residence.
Don and his entire team went above and beyond to help us! We moved across country so most things had to be handled remotely and everything was seamless. When we needed to move our closing to an earlier date Don and his team stepped up and got everything done in time. We can’t thank them enough and would definitely recommend this group!
Coming into the process I was extremely nervous. I am a single mom who had started over in a new state and city and was rebuilding with 4 children, one of whom has a critical health condition. I already had so many things on my plate plus my career, so I was scared that I was able to do the process alone. Many told me that the loan process is hard and grueling, so I expected the worst. However, my experience with Don O’Dell and his amazing team was exactly what I needed to get the job done. Coming into the process I had done as much financial planning as I thought was necessary. However, My research didn’t reveal everything necessary to successfully prepare for and pass the loan process. However, Don and his team were super professional and very strategic from the beginning to finish. His Pre-qualification process revealed any potential issues ahead of time so that I could get to work and clear anything that would cause a hinderance. Even if you are months out from buying your house, get with Don so he can help you prepare. Because of his detail pre qualification process , I was able to go through under writing with no difficulties. They take the time to talk to you and learn your motivation for the purchase. This was my first home purchase and I didn’t have any family around, so Don and his assistant Ari became the family to help me make the right decision for myself and my family. I prequalified February 20 and went under contract on March 4, and closed on April 6 in the middle of the scariest and most unprecedented time. This is my first house and my dream house. Thank you Don and Ari you all are my Angels that made my goal and vision a reality.
Professional, timely and friendly service.
Don and Ari were helpful in walking us through the process step by step and were always responsive to questions and concerns.
Paul & Betty Billinghurst
Moving and finding the right place to call home isn't easy, I wish to say that our experience with Allen Tate was refreshing; very few papers to sign and plenty of information, Our Agent was Amarja and was so helpful! Paul was in Charlotte and I was still in Bridgeton 6 hours away. Amarja took videos and sent them so I could see what Paul was looking at. I would highly recommend using Allen Tate and Allen Tate Mortgage--Amarja, Don & Ari. Thank all of you for our new home, Paul & Betty
David R. Williams
Don and Ari totally exceeded all of my expectations during the mortgage application process. This is the fifth time in my life that I have applied for a home loan and by far the smoothest. They were both quick to respond to all of my needs. They were calming when things weren't always perfect on my end. I can't thank you both enough for helping make my dream of the retirement lake home come true. I am sitting here typing this in my sun room while looking out at my beautiful view of the lake and know that you both were a big part of making this happen. In closing, you were so much better than the big banks/credit unions if have dealt with in the past. Keep doing what you are doing. You provide such a valuable service to people and should be proud of the dignity you give our clients.
Don and his team, Ari, Susan, all at Allen Tate Mortgage did a great job with my refinance. Expectations were set and they delivered in all aspects. My family and I thank you for making our financial situation tremendously better. -KF
Don and Ari were excellent to work with! Don was thorough in explaining our financing options and flexible in working with us to secure the best possible terms. Both Don and Ari communicated quickly and effectively throughout the application process, and made themselves available at any time to answer our questions. Their web-based loan portal is one of the most user-friendly web experiences I've ever had. I would highly recommend their services!
Don was great! Everything went as planned. From our initial meeting to the closing table it was a effortless process. There was also great communication from Don's assistant Arie.
The team was extremely helpful and responsive to my many questions. It was truly an easy refinancing process.
Dear Don & Ari,Thank you so much for all of your hard work on behalf of our home-buying experience! We know it was a very short closing period during a novel time, but Amy was right, you two worked your magic and got it done and we could not be more appreciative!We may not have voiced it yet, but throughout the entire process we’ve been very grateful for your knowledge, patience, and responsiveness. We’ll definitely be recommending you to some friends looking to buy in the Charlotte area!Thanks again and have a great weekend!Best,Alex & Derek
Ari and Don were absolutely wonderful to work with. Buying and selling a house is inherently stressful and I apprecaite Ari being so on top of what we needed to get done to get to the finish line. She was always professional and extremely kind through the process. Glad we picked Allent Tate Mortgage.
Don and his team were absolutely incredible! Throughout the entire process, I felt like I was in good hands and could trust everything they were helping me through. His team had my best interest at heart and I knew that every step of the way. They were always available to clarify paperwork with me, to check on me and ensure I was submitting paperwork on time, they were quick, yet patient with me. They communicated everything very clearly and well. I feel honored to have worked with Don and his team and can't thank them enough! The home buying process was easier and less stressful because of them.
Don and his assistant Ari exceeded my expectations while going through the mortgage process during the recent purchase of my new home. Outstanding communication. The ease of getting the required documents for pre-approval, to the final lock in on the tremendous rate was fantastic. You can't go wrong with Don and Ari at Allen Tate!
Matt & Vikki Price
Don and Ari were fantastic to work with. We had a lot of questions at first in regards to financing and they were very responsive and quick to help each and every time we reached out to them. They are very knowledgable and provided us with all of the info we needed to make an informed decision on what kind of home was right for us. They make a great team! Thank you for everything!
Don was always responsive and easy to work with throughout the home mortgage process from start to finish.
GREAT AND SMOOTH TRANSACTION , ALL WAS CLEAR AND PRESICE . WOULD RECOMEND AND USE AGAIN
Don, Ari, and everyone at Allen Tate was there for us every step of the way in our home buying process. It was a long journey, and they were patient and available for us throughout the whole experience. They were organized and very proactive in communicating what was needed...even with COVID-19 preventing us from meeting in person, we felt connected and so comfortable with them the entire time. 100% recommend working with this team!!!
Dayn & Laura Johnson
Don (and Ari) were both great to work with. We were easily able to reach them any time we had a question, and uploading our documents into the mortgage portal was simple. They walked us through the process, letting us know exactly what we needed at each stage, and made it so we were able to close quickly and as scheduled. Highly recommend him and the entire Allen Tate Team (real estate and insurance as well). It made it even easier having everything 'in-house' -- each hand was aware of what the other was doing!
Kelly & Mark Pereira
The team worked with us every step of the way and communicated proactively.

Working with Don O'Dell and Ari Noll at Allen Tate Companies was straightforward and professional with clear guidance on required documents. When paper obstacles occurred, Ari's solutions were clear, effective and resulted in an on-time submission with minimal effort on my part. All of this was particularly valuable as the sellers were moving out of the country, we had only three weeks (plus a holiday) to work in before the closing and I am located in NY with everything through closing, done remotely. Thank you, Don and Ari!
We did a refi right at the end of 2020 and the process was seamless. Don was always available to answer any questions we had and the portal made it so easy to get all the required documents submitted and signed.
Don was a pleasure to work with. Always extremely responsive and informative. Definitely will be recommending him to my friends.
Excellent service and prompt attention to every issue that arose - Don will be our first contact when we look for our next mortgage.

I appreciate at the ease of our refinance! Don and Ari made the process simple and guided us through with patience. We certainly will recommend Allen Tate to others looking to refinance. We give you a 5 star rating!!
Colleen Ryan and Jeramia Johnson
My husband and I purchased a home, sight unseen and Don and his team handled business to a T. Extremely approachable, very transparent and honest. I highly recommend these guys, professionalism at its best!
Don and Ari are an incredible team! They helped me to organize my documents and get the certified approval before I gave the first offer. All the process felt like on autopilot due to their hard work. Thank you for making this process easy!
I've worked on a lot of mortgages for a lot of clients (and myself) over the years. Between Don and Ari, this has been, by far, the best experience I've ever encountered. Thank you for all your help to take this over the finish line for us!
Don was wonderful! He explained the whole process so I could understand how it worked. He was very responsive and quick to reply to emails. I really enjoyed working with him!
I am a first time homebuyer, and had a wonderful experience with Don and Ari. The two of them made the loan process smooth from application through to my house closing. Ari kept me updated with deadlines and was so responsive and helpful whenever I had a question. I felt supported and taken care of the entire way. I found the online platform to manage my documents super easy to navigate and it contributed to a smooth process. Huge, huge, thanks, to Don and Ari. Very grateful to you both!
Robert J. Page
Don O'Dell and the team he works with, including Ari Noll, personify excellent client service. They ask simple questions that other experts do not, and tailor the mortgage toward the objectives of the client. They obsess over details so that the client does not have to. They respond to requests at inconvenient times without complaint. The mortgage process is not an easy one, but if any team of people can simplify it, it's them.
Lizzie and Will
Don and Ari were such a pleasure to work with. My fiancé and I were first time home buyers and we could not have been in better hands. Don turned around offer letters quickly to us and was so responsive on the weekend when we needed to make an offer quickly. We had a 30 day closing and they were on top of getting all our paperwork submitted to meet the closing date. Ari made us feel assured that everything was in order and answered every question we had. To meet the quick closing date she would even call us as soon as the paperwork is there so we could work as a team. It was an awesome experience start to finish and we will absolutely recommend Don and Ari to our friends.
We selected Allen Tate Mortgage group for the second time now and once again had fantastic experience. I can describe the process as transparent, strait forward and quick. All went well as described and as we expected.
We definably will go with your team for our comping purchases.
We also will recommend you to friends and relatives as one stop solution provider :)
Thanks again for your business
-Sergey, Lana, Ilga and Oleg
Such great ideas and customer service to get us the best new home mortgage.
