Tony Jarrett served as the Chair of the 2014 Greensboro Chamber of Commerce Annual Campaign. Because of Tony's leadership and dedication, we overachieved the goal. One of Tony's greatest strengths is his ability to motivate and bring people together to work as a team while having fun in meeting the challenge. Thank you Tony for being an excellent leader and raising needed funds for our Chamber to achieve its mission of helping businesses in our community grow and prosper.

Tony's innovative leadership skills have allowed our company to become the dominant real estate force in the Triad. His strong work ethic and organizational skills allow him to be "on the cutting edge" of trends, yet alway accessible to the sales staff for questions and guidance.

Tony was an asset to us while we considered moving to Tate from Smith Marketing. His personal knowledge of the process we would go through and his his depth of understanding made it possible for him to be an effective coach to our group. He convinced us and we are proud to be a part of the company!

Being with the Allen Tate Company has provided me the tools and education to stay ahead of the competition. The Leadership Team, especially Tony Jarrett, is very supportive of all agents. He keeps us informed of the area stats and motivates us with fresh ideas and his perspective.
Energy and knowledge are the two words that come to my mind when I think of Tony. He has PLENTY of both. I always marvel at the excitement and energy he has when we have our fund raiser for public education. His passion for this event is unfailing, he is the first one at the event and the last one to leave, helping to raise thousands for Guilford, Forsyth, Randolph, Alamance, Davidson and Rockingham County Schools.
His energy when we celebrate our fantastic REALTORS each year for their great accomplishments in our industry, is touching. He tweaks every detail to make sure all our agents know they are appreciated.
Knowledge, he is brilliant! Enough said.
Where do I begin about Tony Jarrett? I have known Tony for years as a leader in the real estate community. I was blessed with the opportunity to work with Tony a few years ago when he asked me to join the Allen Tate- Triad leadership team. It was the best decision I could have made! Tony is one of the brightest, most compassionate and hardest working leaders in the industry. He makes a difference in the lives of all who work with him.
There are so many words to describe Tony Jarrett! Focused! Passionate! Energizing! And these words don't even come close when describing the leader he is for Allen Tate Companies in the Triad! He is focused on the big picture and keeps his team focused as well. He is passionate about his team and is always available to provide the best guidance! He has enough energy for 40 people! He gains respect from his leadership team by providing respect and allowing his team to perform at their best. Whether you are new to the real estate business or a 20 year veteran, Tony always has the time to provide the best insight into the business.
We had the pleasure of meeting Tony Jarrett when the Allen Tate organization was introduced to The High Country. His exceptional leadership skills, positive attitude, patience, knowledge and understanding was key in enabling a smooth transition for the Blowing Rock/Boone branch becoming a part of the Allen Tate family. His professionalism, responsiveness, communication skills, and dedication to his team, agents, employees and the Allen Tate family, show just how much of a leader he is. We are honored and privileged to have Tony Jarrett in “our” family through this journey as we expand Allen Tate in the High Country!
Tony is an incredible leader and I am blessed to have him in my corner! He has boundless energy and is always there when we need him, quite frankly I don’t know how he does it. He’s very supportive of his community and always looking for opportunities to give back and encouraging us to do the same. I learn from him and his leadership daily and I am so thankful to be a part of his team.

Tony Jarrett recognizes that to be an effective leader you must strike the delicate balance of identifying and clarifying the mission, having the knowledge and skill to accomplish it, while overtly demonstrating a profound appreciation and gratitude for those that are like minded in the pursuit of it. All the while delivering it in the right measure and at the right time. It is rare to find such diverse qualities in a modern leader. It is an honor and a blessing that he serves as my model in professional development.

Tony is an outstanding leader. He is knowledgeable, passionate, and dedicated to the agents and staff he works with. His quick wit and attention to detail make him a valuable asset to our team. His leadership of the Allen Tate Triad region has put us at the top of the market year after year, and his commitment to the community and especially public education has truly made a difference in so many lives. I am proud to work with Tony and grateful for all he continues to give to us personally and professionally at Allen Tate.
Very few individuals have had the impact on my life - professionally but more important, personally - than Tony. He has become a mentor and a friend during the four years we have worked together and I can't imagine being where I am today without his influence. Whether it is through his actions or his words, I am drawn to learn more about his story and carefully analyze how he approaches all situations with ease and confidence. There are very few leaders who could compare.
Tony is a leader's leader. He absolutely brings out the best in the individuals he coaches and in his team as a whole. Tony truly listens to understand. He is a great coach, advocate, and teammate. I grew as a professional and as a person under his guidance. I feel very fortunate to have had him as my mentor and coach.

I appreciate working with fellow leaders who are empathetic and strive to maintain the self-esteem of others. That describes my experiences working through thorny issues with Tony Jarrett, a leader who understands human nature and genuinely cares about and believes in people. Those qualities have created a loyal team of “Jarrett-heads” who benefit from his leadership style and many skills. He is often trusted to lead critical company projects that require focus on detail and process, but he is also a collaborator gifted in recognizing and drawing out the talents in others. He is a clear communicator, a willing mentor to many, and a leader who shows appreciation for the work of his teammates. He’s also famous for his mad DJing skills and his sense of humor.
Tony has been my regional manager for over 13 years! During that time he has always made himself available and listened to my needs and concerns. He has been instrumental in the success of our new location. Always reasonable and solution-oriented, you really couldn't ask for a better leader for our region!
Tony is one of the most detailed, helpful people I have worked with. He is prompt to respond and delivers on his promise. I would highly recommend Tony to my friends, colleagues and family.
Tony Jarrett is a consummate professional and tireless leader for Allen Tate Real Estate. As our Regional Vice President for the Triad and High Country, he has the difficult task of managing the macro and the micro. He has the corporate experience to chart a long-term vision for the Allen Tate Company while still being personal enough to have a one-on-one business planning meeting with an agent or branch leader. Thanks for always leading the way!
