If you are considering buying or selling a home in The Palisades you should call Dorthe. We have bought and sold many homes in the past but have never had such a seamless process. The personal attention to every detail and aspect of the sale made the experience of working with Dorthe wonderful. She was always available to answer our questions and her response time was immediate. If you are considering selling your home, don’t hesitate calling Dorthe to guide you through the process. No one knows The Palisades market like her.Jerry and Donna

There are twenty-five other realtors listed on the Allen-Tate website. If any of them are better than Dorthe I would be shocked. Dorthe is the total package, professional, knowledgable, organized, responsive, calm, decisive, and an absolute pleasure to work with personally. She also has great contacts such as a very skillful handyman, movers, photographer, etc., should the need arise. It's no surprise to us that Dorthe receives multiple Performance Recognition Awards annually,Tom & Jan Himes
We were hesitant to put our home on the market due to some past experience. We found working with Ann-Dorthe with Allen Tate to be an unexpected delight. We received suggestions and advice that were instrumental in accepting an offer the first day we put our home on the market. The sale finalized a month after we started working with Ann-Dorthe.Joan & Mat
A 10 Star review for a 10 Star Agent!The Vecchio's
Dorthe was wonderful to work with. She was very professional, responsive and helpful. We had to get our home on the market quickly as we were relocating. Dorthe was very helpful in making recommendations for staging and for giving recommendations for contractors to do touch up painting and cleaning. Our house was under contract in 3 weeks. Dorthe also recommended movers to assist with packing of boxes and loading our truck. We needed to move while our house was under contract but before the closing of the property. Dorthe was very helpful in facilitating communication between the buyers realtor and us throughout the entire process. Following the inspection, Dorthe assisted us in letting contractors in to do repair work and to follow-up on the repairs. Additionally, Dorthe would check to see if we had any mail that the post office did not forward and mailed it to us on several occasions. Dorthe facilitated the communication between the closing attorney and us as we were out of town. We are so grateful for all of Dorthe's help throughout this entire process and would highly recommend her for your real estate needs. Thank you Dorthe for everything! Darrelle and Stephen Biddix
Absolutely the best...period.Justin Wood
We cannot thank Dorthe enough for all of her time that she spent with us before, during and after the sale of our home. She was always available to turn on light, pick up mail, and anything else we needed, while we were out of town, to prepare the house for showings. We appreciate the value that she brought to the whole experience. She was easy to get a hold of and always responded right away to our questions and concerns.Stephanie & Dave Cox
When we hired Dorthe, we had already purchased another home and moved out. We were in a pinch to sell quickly. We hired Dorthe because of her vast experience with selling homes in the Palisades area in Charlotte. Dorthe's knowledge of the homes in the area helped us price the house perfectly. We had two offers within the first week and were able to close quickly. Dorthe is a gem! Thank you Dorthe.
We were really unsure if this was the right time for us to put our home on the market and Dorthe gave us the confidence to take the leap. She brings experience and knowledge and helped us feel comfortable throughout the process. She helped us get our home ready for the market and connected us with the right people in other steps of the moving process. We highly recommend her if you’re thinking of selling.
Dorthe was an absolute pleasure to work with. She took the time to understand the needs of our family, helping to ensure we were focused and efficient with our time. Thorough, timely, and responsive, the entire process was extremely simple.I couldn't recommend Dorthe more highly.Brandon
It's not easy buying a house from a distant location and not actually seeing the house in person. However, Dorthe helped us make it happen. She was always available when we asked her to arrange for another video tour of yet another house or to answer a question. We could rely on her to get the answer to our questions quickly if she didn't immediately have it and to assuage any concerns about selecting a new home from afar and moving. Dorthe has also been a valuable source of information for so many details of relocating. She made what seemed like a daunting task to work smoothly.
Gary and Lydia McEvoy
Dorthe was our agent when we purchased the house and we were so impressed with her that Dorthe was the obvious choice when it came to selling it. We had already relocated out of state and Dorthe went above and beyond at every stage of the process. No matter how big or small the request, Dorthe responded quickly and professionally. We were impressed that frequently we would ask about something only to find that Dorthe had already got it taken care of! Her knowledge of the market, pricing, and management of the process were impressive - not least because she navigated through this during the COVID crisis. We are delighted to recommend Dorthe to anyone needing a diligent, talented, and impressive Realtor.Lydia and Gary McEvoy
Roger & Jacqueline Hartman
It was a pleasure working with Dorthe. We viewed several properties and Dorthe was knowledgeable enough about the listings to assist us in choosing a home that best fits our needs. Dorthe was not only knowledgeable but was always courteous and professional.Roger & Jacqueline
Michelle & Brandon
My family had an excellent experience with our Allen Tate Agent, Dorthe. She came highly recommended by my parents (who also used her to buy a home here in Charlotte) but our situation was unique. We were moving from Texas, with two kids under two, during a pandemic. Dorthe was organized and showed us great options that proved she understood what we were looking for. She went above and beyond to find the perfect home for our family and expedite the closing process. She has continued to be a helpful resource for additional services, which is especially helpful when you are new to the area. I would recommend her to anyone looking in the Charlotte area!Michelle & Brandon Williams
We had seen Dorthe help neighbors buy and sell their homes in the Palisades for years. Having had a bad experience selling our first home years ago, we were determined to be pickier when selecting a realtor this time around. When we met with her the first time, we knew she was the perfect realtor for selling our home. Her knowledge of the market helped her price our home accurately, and the beautiful pictures taken for the listing were the icing on the cake. Our home was sold in under 3 days on the market. She made every part of the transaction effortless. Thank you Dorthe Havmoller!!Laura and Kevin
Angela Laney Nyborg
Dorthe & I met a little over 9 years ago through our husband's golf outings at the country club we were both members. Soon our friendship developed through women's golfing, ladies luncheons, and gatherings with other mutual friends. There was no doubt when we decided to list our home last summer that we would list with none other than Dorthe. She has demonstrated professionalism through out each aspect of the process, each showing request, and of course, easily to assist with our search for the new home. Every text answered quickly, every email promptly replied to, and always asked what could she do to help. Although, we've relocated a distance apart, our friendship will remain as strong! So proud of all her accomplishments in the real estate world!
Robert A Hagemann
Dorthe represented my wife and I in selling a very unique piece of property on Lake Wylie. It was a property that we loved, but due to changes in circumstances concluded we would likely never build on it. While other realtors I had spoken to were unable to appreciate the uniqueness of the property and the related value, Dorthe took the time to listen. She came to understand what made it unique and built that into the marketing of the property. She was able to help us find a buyer that saw the same potential in this property that I saw when we first acquired it, and we received appropriate value for the property. I had complete trust and confidence in Dorthe’s advice through the process. Dorthe went above and beyond for us. Our lot has a beautiful cove that had collected debris from storms over the years. When I suggested we hire someone to clean it out, Dorthe wanted to save us the cost. She, her husband, and sons spent a day cleaning out the cove. That’s above and beyond! I would highly recommend Dorthe to anyone who is looking for someone they can trust, and who will be looking out for their best interest at all times Robert & Nancy Hagemann
We had a great, quick & smooth transaction experience in selling of our house.. thanks to Dorthe!! I highly recommend her!! Priti Singh
Dorthe walked our 9.5-acre lake lot in The Sanctuary and helped me relocate survey flags marking the property line. She sold the lot in record time after it had been on the market for a number of years. She was professional, courteous, and helpful through the closing. I highly recommend her services.
Ashley & Zach Hartis
At the beginning of the year, my husband and I started to entertain the idea of selling our current home and buying a new home in the Palisades. We knew the market was hot in Charlotte, though didn’t have a need to move; if we were to move we needed to find just that right house in a specific area of town and weren’t willing to look elsewhere. We found Dorthe through a google search of agents who specialized in the Palisades and after our first meeting with Dorthe, we knew immediately that we wanted to work with her. This was our first experience of buying and selling at the same time and she made the whole process so seamless and simple for us. She was always just a text or call away, no matter how ridiculous my question or worried I was. Her guidance and professionalism were superior and we never worried she wasn’t going to be our biggest advocate. Would 100% recommend if you’re in the market in the south Charlotte area! Ashley & Zach
Dorthe is extremely knowledgeable about the laws governing real estate transactions, the palisades, and the best light to reflect your home in. She gave good suggestions, was professional and very responsive. Plus she was very friendly and easy to work with. Her marketing is top notch. I always felt she had our best interest in mind and was always looking out for us. Lastly, she is excellent at handling negotiations and responses. I can’t say enough good things.Susanna Taylor
Hiring Dorthe to sell my house was one of the best decisions I could have ever made. My house sat on the market for about a year with 2-3 showings a month with 2 other highly qualified successful realtors. Dorthe proved she is absolutely the best in the business. She quickly took over the listing, worked her magic and I had more showings in 2-3 weeks then I had in an entire year. She had my house under contract in about 30 days. She was so informative, so helpful and responsive. I can't say thank you enough for all that she did for me. If you have any real estate needs, make sure you hire Dorthe!Larry Crosby
Dorthe is the consummate real estate professional and made the process of selling our home extremely fast, easy, and stress-free. We highly recommended her for handling your real estate needs.Reed & Rachel Robinson
Dorthe was outstanding to work with. She worked tirelessly to generate interest in our home—even during an off-peak season. Her marketing capabilities and knowledge of the local market is second to none. George Taylor
Ross & Liz Sandora
Dorthe was truly a 10 out of 10!! As first time home sellers, we had many questions for Dorthe. She was always quick to respond, full of knowledge and really put our minds at ease during some of the more stressful points of the selling process. Once our home was under contract, Dorthe hit the town with us and we were able to find and buy the perfect home for our family. We appreciate all Dorthe did for our family during this process and we couldn't be happier with our new home!!Ross & Liz Sandora
There are no words to express how grateful we are for Dorthe's help and expertise in selling our home! We were the clients who had every possible circumstance you could think of to happen during this process and she knew how to navigate each unexpected twist and turn, keep us calm and ensure we closed the deal successfully and on schedule. We needed some minor repairs done quickly and she had a contractor ready ASAP. We needed a radon mitigation system and she had contact and experience with installing these. We needed to negotiate two offers for the sale of our house and a purchase agreement for our next house and she handled everything with our best interests at heart. Dorthe's investment in marketing our property above and beyond the standard realtor listing and website were also impressive and her business relationships with large clients and relocation firms were invaluable. We were not Dorthe's highest listing but she made us feel like we were her VIP client from the beginning to end. Thank you, Dorthe Havmoeller and Allen Tate for a wonderful experience! Melissa & Jaime Deckard
Chris and Vernia McKinney
We sincerely appreciate the relationship we share with Dorthe because she was personable and hands-on for our needs when selling our previous home in Charlotte’s Palisades community. She exhibited true patience and had an understanding of the type of home our family needed based on specific functionality for the current purchase. It was a long journey but a worthwhile one because she always had a pleasant attitude for the many, many, homes we viewed. She will always be our No 1 producing Real Estate Agent and friend! Looking forward to the future real estate investments we may embark on with Dorthe! Job well done from a true professional!The McKinney’s
Dorthe is not only a great realtor but a special person she is smart hardworking and non confrontational the best realtor I’ve ever used.
Dorthe was efficient professional and did a fantastic job. Found us a first class Renter in a very short time we were delighted. Cannot recommend highly enough!
Great job Dorthe and thank you!
Dorthe to me defines what a realtor should be. She was "our" agent. Always had our interest in mind. It was a pleasure to have her represent my husband and I on the recent purchase of our home. She is very knowledgeable and is very fair. We felt that she really worked hard for us to get us into the home. She worked with the contractors, external service providers for estimates and additional work that needed to be done with a smile on her face. She was always available even when she was out on vacation. She understands that buying a home is a big deal and was supportive all through the way. We would work with her in a heartbeat. Love her!
Our experience with Dorthe was great. She sold our house in 2 days!!! She was always very knowledgeable and easy to work with and never pushy.
José A. Pascual-Gutiérrez
We have nothing but praise and gratitude for Dorthe's high-level of professionalism--her calm, generous spirit, her sharp acumen for the real estate world and her expert knowledge of our particular community, The Palisades, made the entire process absolutely perfect. She has total command of all angles of the business--we knew we were in the best of hands. Allen Tate is blessed to have someone of Dorthe's caliber and grace.
Mario G Munoz
Dorthe is an excellent realtor that I would recommend to my friends and family! She is very personable, timely, organized, and patient individual who cares greatly for her clients. We sold our house in under 2 months thanks to her expertise in the market as well as her team of individuals that she has throughout the entire process. Thanks, Dorthe! Cheers...Mario
Moving to a new state tends to be difficult. Issues tend to keeping piling up one after another. One issue that we didn’t have to worry about was selling our house. Our realtor, Dorthe Havmoeller, allowed us to breathe easy. With her great understanding of the housing market, she developed a strategy on how to approach selling the house and recommendations on how to market the house.
She went above and beyond to sell our house and to make sure to handle any issues that arose. While we were in our new residence, any repairs that needed to be made with the house were taken care of by her. If that weren’t enough as it was, she would also pick up our mail and deliver it to our PO box weekly. It really went to show how she made a point to treat us like people and not just another customer.
Overall, I was able to worry ab out other moving logistics while she was handling the selling aspect. There was never a time where I thought, “my house may not sell”. The confidence that Dorthe exhibited infected me and never made me think otherwise. If she lived where I moved to and I had to move again, I would have her as my realtor.
Lesli Casten Munoz
I contacted Dorthe regarding the need for a quick sale of my house. She responded to me very quickly and was on top of making sure our house was on the market quickly and looking its best. Her photographer quality was amazing and the process of selling our home moved seamlessly with her guidance. I would give her a 15 out of 10 for her services and for being very involved in all steps of the process. I would definitely recommend her and choose her again.
Kevin and Cheryl Malcolm
Dorthe Havmoeller is a true example of "total professionalism". She was always pleasant, open, honest, diplomatically direct and had our best interests as a priority. We are not the most patient people and she always responded to our inquiries and requests in a timely manner. We highly recommend her if you are in need of a knowledgeable, efficient and pleasant realtor!
Mary Anne and Ruben Gonzales
Working w Ann-Dorthe Havmoeller was a great experience! We have sold many homes over the years and working w her was beyond great. She has great connections in her industry and the photographer she got us was great. She priced the home realistically, we had multiple offers to consider and our home was sold within 3 days! We received $17,500 over asking price. She is a professional and articulate go-getter, she is organized and knows her industry. I highly highly recommend her for buying and/or selling. She is the best! Seriously she is the best! - Mary Anne and Ruben Gonzales, Charlotte NC
Dorthe was fantastic to work with. I have known her for several years and she brings a calmness to the buying process that helps tremendously during what can be a stressful time. She also cares about her clients and will make certain your voice is heard to the buyer of your home and to the seller of the home you are purchasing. She knows the market very well and has great feedback when you solicit advice from her. She is a class act!
Mary Anne Langford
I was very surprised and happy that my home sold so soon. It was less than 2 months. And Dorthe not only listed the house but she also sold it, and was very helpful in setting up a garage sale and being there to help the whole time. I just think Dorthe is the best and I'm now proud to call her my friend. I really appreciate the time and caring you spend with me, you once said that you tend to "give it your all when it comes to your clients" well you have proved it to me time and time again. And I wanted you to know that you are the best realtor I have ever had and the most beautiful person to have as a friend both inside and out.
Dorthe handled the purchase in a very professional manner. She assisted us through the entire process making it a smooth and easy exercise.
I would highly recommend her and use her again in future.
Chesley and Jeanne Singleton
We recently sold our house in Charlotte using Dorthe Havmoeller as our listing agent. She gave us outstanding guidance during the listing period, and was always available whenever we had questions. She guided us through the negotiation and due diligence periods smoothly. We put the house on the market July 2,2016 and had a contract on July 18, 2016, and closed on September 9, 2016 all with no problems. We can recommend Dorthe Havmoeller to anyone, as she did us an extraordinary job selling our house. Chesley and Jeanne Singleton
Dave and Connie Ramsey
The process of selling a home is stressful at best as we were faced with a challenging market. After several months of listing our home with another realty company, we changed to Dorthe Havmoeller based on her performance and knowledge of the market and our community. Dorthe was not only knowledgeable and professional, but also very personable. She was creative with her marketing strategy and always made herself available to provide assistance during the selling and buying process. We would highly recommend Dorthe as a selling or buying agent.
We were moving to Charlotte and looking for a residence. Dorthe worked with us diligently throughout the entire process. She has a high sense of responsibility and is willing to take whatever efforts needed to help us. She saw things from our point of view. In some circumstances, she was more like a consultant/advisor. After all done, Dorthe has become a good friend of us. We would highly recommend her to anybody who is looking for a good realtor.
I know that I am a difficult client and in this case, especially difficult. Dorthe helped us find a house and sell our house at the same time. I was blown away by her patience, professionalism and responsiveness. I am confident when I say without her we'd probably be homeless!
Nick & Kala Myers
We had a fantastic buying experience purchasing our new home with Dorthe! She quickly caught on to our style and was very helpful in suggesting areas and homes that we liked. We looked at tons of different houses, including several on Mothers Day, and she was very patient throughout the process. Clear communication was especially important to us as we had a poor experience on the selling side (not with Dorthe or Allen Tate), and Dorthe exceeded expectations quickly answering texts, emails and phone calls throughout the process. The buying process could not have been smoother, and we would not hesitate to have Dorthe represent us again for buying or selling!
Working with Dorthe was an absolute pleasure! This was the easiest,most stress-free sell of a home we've ever had. Dorthe KNOWS the Palisades . She provides professional advice and goes the extra mile in service - what a joy to have her as our agent! Amy and Mark Satterfield
Alex and Karen Nelson
We could not have been happier with Dorthe and her team. She was very proactive in marketing our home and made sure that we were not only on MLS but on other sites and search engines that drove traffic into our home. She was also extremely valuable once our house went under contract as, in addition to assisting in the negotiations, she worked with the buyer's agent to make sure that the appraisal took into account all of the nuances of a lakefront property and took an active role in cleaning up the punch list items after our appraisal. She is a great choice especially if you are selling your home in the Lake Wylie/Fort Mill area.
Dorthe was extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. She helped us find us our dream home. We couldn't be happier with her and will recommend her to anyone.
Chris and Heather Backeberg
Dorthe’s marketing and reach are unparalleled. Her knowledge of the Palisades Community, trends, and momentum really helped us establish a solid listing, which built on strong recent sales. The combination of her marketing, these trends and her recent successes, resulted in a quick transaction that we were very pleased with.
Our agent Dorthe Havmoeller provided us with outstanding service! She was responsive, attentive and supportive thought out our transaction! I would recommend her to anyone looking to selling/buying a home. I would also use her again without a doubt in the future.
Suzanne & John Galvin
I cannot say enough thanks to Dorthe. She was just what you hope an agent will be like. She went out of her way to check on our home after we moved away. She discovered issues that arose and went to bat for us in getting them repaired. She let in workmen and just went far above and beyond what you would expect from an agent. We are so glad we chose Dorthe. You will not regret it either.
Linda A. Wagner
We feel so fortunate that our Pennsylvania realtor recommended we work with Dorthe when searching for our "new" home in Charlotte!Dorthe was extraordinarily helpful throughout the process and using the on-line listings she suggested as well as some we'd found, we were able to target our search appropriately. When touring the homes in the different neighborhoods, she provided valuable narrative regarding the amenities as well as proximity to shopping and the airport.When our offer on the new home was accepted, we were faced with the problem of having the various utilities connected prior to our moving down to Charlotte! Any anxiety I experienced was quickly eliminated when Dorthe assured me that she would gladly meet these technicians at the house when I could schedule them.Dorthe made what could have been a stressful home search/purchase process not only efficient but also enjoyable!We are looking forward to moving into our Charlotte home and cannot begin to adequately express our gratitude to Dorthe for her invaluable help with the process.To anyone moving to the Charlotte area or from out of state, we highly recommend you work with Dorthe.Linda and Henry Wagner
Terri J Palmieri
Dorthe is amazing. She was a huge help in finding our new home. I found her online and she reached out to us. After giving her an idea of what we were looking for, she met with us the next day with a list of homes to check out. She knows a lot about the area, the neighborhoods, the schools... all that were huge considerations for us. She has been there to support us during the whole process. She even came to the design center with me to help make selections for our home. I was so thankful because this process was very overwhelming. (She even arrived with coffee for me. I had driven up from Atlanta that morning). If I had a question, she was there to answer. If she didn't know, she knew who to contact. She supported my family and I through the whole process. Upon moving in, she handled HOA paperwork for me, went out of her way to get our pool keys and even let us borrow her air mattress until our furniture arrived. =) Dorthe was a Godsend. We would have been lost without her. Thank you for everything Dorthe.
We called on Dorthe after months of inactivity with our previous agent. Having seen the marketing materials she distributes via mail in the Palisades, we decided to list with her. Dorthe instantly made our home more marketable by improving our photos, increasing our online ad presence, and including our home in numerous publications (including one of her own). She specializes in the Palisades and that is evident in her knowledge of the area. She will price your home correctly based on market trends and is responsive to all your needs. She always works in the best interest of her clients. If you are looking to buy/sell anywhere near the Palisades, I would highly recommend Dorthe! We've had many realtors over the years and her performance/professionalism is far better than any others we have worked with.
Dorthe did a great job getting our property sold. There were several struggles along the way with Buyer, but she was able to address those head on. We appreciate her hard work for us!
Paul & Susie Bruno
We believe that if you want to successfully buy or sell your home in the Palisades...Dorthe Havmoeller is the only realtor you should call. Dorthe lives in the development and sells exclusively in the Palisades. She knows the selling points of each neighborhood and incorporates this knowledge in all of her marketing; her counsel and preparation of the home for on-site presentations, and her final sales' negotiations.Her guidance was "right on the mark" when it came to preparing our home for the internet presentation, establishing an accurate asking price, and successfully the negotiating the appraisal process, the inspection, and the closing steps.During the entire sales process, Dorthe utilized the latest technology and her personal time to keep us informed on how prospective buyers were responding to the house. Our 10 year old home was in suburb condition, however, our competitors were all of the new developments being built in the area, as well as, 12 new homes in our neighborhood, Whispering Pines.Given all that...We accepted our second offer in 21 days.Susie and I are grateful for the opportunity to meet and work with Dorthe Havmoeller. It simply was a great experience. We believe that Dorthe far surpassed any expectations we had when we began the process of selling our home. Once again…If you are considering buying or selling a home in the Palisades you should call Dorthe Havmoeller.
Dorthe is an exceptional resource in the Charlotte area to sell your home; she knows the market and has a good sense of how to move traffic into the home and promote visibility and gets offers quickly!She is also patient and persistent during the closing process and I highly recommend her.She's also a really nice person to work with and was a great neighbor!
Holly J Lawhorn
Ann-Dorthe Havmoeller was amazing. Extremely well with communication and just making us feel comfortable the entire time. When our house went on the market, we had 2 views that same day and one offer. The next day we had 2 more offers and under contract that weekend. She is reliable and goes above and beyond to make the process easy. We will definitely use her in the future. We highly recommend Ann-Dorthe Havmoeller.Holly J Lawhorn
Maggie & Eric Egelhoff
We had such a great experience working with Dorthe Havmoeller and would highly recommend her to anyone relocating to Charlotte or just looking to buy a new home in the area. We relocated from Philadelphia earlier this summer and Dorthe worked with us before we moved down here to find a rental that was right for us (enough space and located near our daycare - the only one in the city with openings!). She was very accommodating of my husband's travel schedule and rearranged appointments to fit in showings between his work meetings. She spent time with us up front to really understand what we were looking for and she even went to look at some places on our behalf when we couldn't make it down. I didn't actually see our rental before we moved but I felt confident that it would meet our needs as it had been vetted by Dorthe. Once we moved in early June, we immediately started looking at homes and we were all over the place in terms of location, new construction, building something ourselves, you name it and Dorthe was so patient with us! We viewed several houses multiple times and were even in negotiations with a builder on a lot and floor plans which we ultimately decided not to pursue. After that, we took a break for a couple of weeks until a great house popped up on the MLS and I went to the open house. When I walked in, I knew it was the one and Dorthe managed to get our whole family in for a showing early the next morning (on a Sunday!) and helped us negotiate a great price. She had excellent recommendations for inspectors and our closing was so quick we even had time to get new keys made and still make it into the office. She was incredibly accommodating of our schedules, always meeting us on evenings and weekends and being very flexible when we wanted to shift appointments on late notice. She was also great with our toddler, keeping her entertained and safe while we were touring homes so we could focus on evaluating the homes. We can't say enough great things about Dorthe and we're so happy we found her! She helped us buy our dream home and we don't plan to move any time soon but if we find ourselves in need of a realtor in the future, Dorthe will be our first call.
We began looking to relocate to the south Charlotte area in 2017 from San Diego. After researching the area we decided on the Palisades area with the country club and various amenities. After inquiring regarding a knowledgeable real estate agent who could help us navigate the options and opportunities we were given Dorthe 's name as THE individual who KNEW the area, products, trends in the real estate market. She exhibited exceptional knowledge and professionalism. As a retired banker I was able to assess her expertise and was totally satisfied with her guidance, experience and strategic inputs to our decision to enter into a contract for a new home construction. She was instrumental in overseeing the project while we were in San Diego and advising on the progress as well as participating in the various inspection phases.We would recommend her services without reservation confident that her collaboration will contribute significantly to the acquisition of a new or previously owned residence.Henry & Suzy Halleland
Jim and Diane O’Neill
Dorthe was knowledgeable, professional and a huge asset in selling our home. She went above and beyond her responsibilities to create a smooth process for us. As a matter of fact, we don’t believe she ever answered a question with a response other than “no problem, I’ll take care of it”. We were out of town quite a lot and she was very helpful.We have bought and sold numerous homes over the years and Dorthe stands out as top notch in the field. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dorthe to a friend or family member who is buying or selling a home.
We recently worked with Dorthe as our listing agent, who managed to get us a full price offer on our house in 1 day. She worked very hard with the appraisers to ensure they understood the value of our home so we could get the strongest market value at the time of the sell. Additionally, she held our hand through a contingent purchase of the home we're in now. Contingent transactions are nothing shy of a miracle so navigating those waters takes an experienced agent. The property had lots of unknowns, mounds of red tape and pressing deadlines that required legal and real estate expertise. Had Dorthe not been our agent, I am certain this transaction would have fallen through. With complete confidence, I would recommend Dorthe and the Allen Tate team for both sides of your real estate transaction.Eric & Cody Lipson
David Michael Krader
Without the assistance of Dorthe, it is very likely that I would have missed numerous critical details in my home buying process, which would have doubled or tripled an already stressful transaction. She was there every step of the way to provide guidance based on her experience and expertise. Not only was she knowledgeable regarding the purchase of a home, she also had numerous contacts and recommended resources including but not limited to home inspectors, settlement/closing attorneys, insurance, and repair people.She provided end-to-end services and made sure that I was aware of key points in the process, and when needed gave me advance warning of upcoming items, both critical and general good-to-know information.Dorthe always exhibited professionalism and ensured that my best interests were kept in the forefront. She listened and paid attention - this was especially critical in the beginning when I outlined the type of home and amenities I was looking for. Using my input she came up with several properties that fit most if not all of my criteria. This was very important to me because I had to travel from out of state and didn't want to waste my time looking at homes that I wouldn't be interested in. She was so good at showing me only homes I would like that I ended up finding the right house on my very first house hunting trip.I would recommend Dorthe to anyone looking for a home in the greater Charlotte, NC area (including South Carolina). When and if it comes time for me to move again, I will be reaching out to her to represent me as a selling agent (if she's still available).
My wife and I were first time home buyers and could not have had a better experience. Dorthe was there for us every step of the way and was available at all hours for us. She found out what we wanted, respected our price range and found us the perfect home. She made us feel comfortable and other than things on the seller's side, everything went smoothly. I would recommend her to anyone especially if they are looking in the Palisades because she is truly an expert here.Katie & Casey Schneider
First off, Allen Tate was a great company to work with. They made the process extremely easy by having all the different workings of the closing process in one place either by knowing others who work closely with Allen Tate or having those departments part of the company. We had a great experience working with all of the individuals involved which include Dorthe, Jamie Adams, the loan teamed Drew McKeithan. I will have to say, the best part of our experience was working with Dorthe. She was very knowledgable, dependable, patient and a great communicator. My husband and I live far from family and felt like she took us under our wing which was greatly appreciated. If she felt like we were stressed the least bit, she would go the extra mile to make sure things were taken care of. Our first home buying experience couldn't have been better. Thank you so much for a great experience. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to move to the Charlotte area, starting with the in-laws:) Katie Schneider

Dorthe was a pleasure to work with on the recent purchase of our home. We were moving from California to Charlotte and her extensive knowledge of the area, endless patience, and approachable personality made our home search an enjoyable experience. She was always willing to show us homes on short notice or weekends and made the time to speak with us whenever we needed it. Since we weren't familiar with the businesses in the area, she connected us with numerous companies for insurance, painting, and fence installation among others. She even checked in on the home projects before we arrived to ensure everything was going as planned. She has not just become the only real estate agent that we will use and recommend, she has become a friend. We are so grateful to Dorthe and all of her expertise and kindness.
Dorthe was great and made selling our home as stress-free as possible. She is very professional and detail-oriented to ensure nothing was missed in preparing our home to show and sell. She knows the area as good as anyone, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Steele Creek area.Jay Foster

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Dorthe for the selling of our previous house and the building and buying of our new home! She was extremely supportive throughout the whole process. The materials and media she used and provided for selling the house were stellar! She was very knowledgeable about the market and looked out for our best interests as we sold, especially since we ended up selling to friends. She knew that the friendship aspect needed to be protected and delicately handled. As we built, she was very helpful in the design process offering previous experiences but giving us the space to make our choices according to our tastes.Ultimately, we felt like Dorthe went above and beyond!Jamie & Preston Howell

Dorthe recently helped our daughter buy her first home in October. She went above and beyond to make this experience as stress-free as possible including a number of extra visits to the home on our daughter's behalf during the due diligence. Soon after this deal closed, she listed our home and we could not be happier with the results. Thanks to her dedication and professionalism both the possession timing and price we received exceeded our expectations. We are extremely grateful to have been fortunate enough to have Dorthe help us with both of these transactions this fall. THANK YOU, Dorthe!Clint & Darcia Jensen

Dorthe was the best solution for us to sell our home in the Palisades. She is very knowledgeable about the area and has strong relationships, within the marketplace, that will attract buyers quickly!Dorthe was also tremendously helpful after we left the area in sorting out many complications with our sale and was always available and willing to go the extra distance to move the process forward.
It was great to work with Dorthe Havmoeller during our home buying process. She came to us as a recommendation from one of our friends and she exceeded our expectations on all fronts of the home buying process.Ashwini and Prashant

We knew from our first conversation with Dorthe that we would enjoy working with her. She listened carefully to what was important to us now and in the future, and offered a lot of valuable information to help us throughout the process of finding and ultimately buying a home in the Charlotte area. When we asked, Dorthe always gave us her candid opinion about properties we were interested in and helped us to think through what would or would not be a fair offer. We really came to appreciate Dorthe's deep knowledge of the Charlotte area, its neighborhoods, and suggestions for avoiding heavy traffic during peak times. Once our offer was accepted, Dorthe made sure we understood the due diligence and closing processes and provided a list of providers we could select from for inspectors, insurance, and closing attorneys. She was the consummate professional, never steering us, but always taking the time to listen to our questions and making sure we had the information we needed to make informed choices. Even after we closed, Dorthe was just a phone call away to help us find contractors we could rely on to get our home ready to move into. From beginning to end, Dorthe was kind and helpful. It is difficult to imagine how we could have had any better experience working with a real estate agent. We would have no hesitation working with Dorthe again, and definitely, recommend Dorthe to anyone relocating to the Charlotte area.Lisa and Kimm Korber

We had the pleasure to work with Dorthe for the past year or so. She helped us look at neighborhoods around Charlotte as we were thinking about moving to the area. Her knowledge and insight into the different areas were very helpful. When we finally were able to pull the trigger on the move, we couldn't have gone through the process without her. As we hit a few bumps in the road, she was incredible and always helped us stay on top of the situation. We are now in our new home and love it. We couldn't have done it without Dorthe and her expertise and professionalism. I would recommend Dorthe to anyone buying or selling a home in the Charlotte area.Tom & Maribeth Collins
