When H. Allen Tate Jr. was growing up in South Carolina, he received career advice from his father, a grocer. His father suggested he go to Charlotte and enter the real estate business. His father instilled in Tate a passion for sales and customer service from a young age. After graduating from the University of North Carolina, Tate took his father’s advice. In 1957, Allen Tate Co., Inc. opened its doors at 112 S. Tryon Street in Charlotte, selling real estate and insurance. It was a one-man operation at the time with one simple goal — to provide exceptional customer service and a “one-stop shopping” experience for buyers and sellers.
Tate eventually became a strategic advisor for the company. He had complete confidence in President Pat Riley and the Allen Tate Companies leadership team, entrusting them to carry out his vision and lead the company far into the future.
From its humble beginning in Charlotte, Allen Tate Companies steadily grew into a regional real estate giant, and now serves the Carolinas with offices from the Upstate of South Carolina to the Research Triangle region of North Carolina. Allen Tate employs more than 1,500 real estate professionals and is consistently ranked as the number one agency in the Carolinas.
Today, we remember the life of this wonderful man and the legacy he left behind. H. Allen Tate Jr. mentored and inspired many people in his lifetime, and paved the way for the ideals and values the company still holds to this day. In Tate’s own words, “The journey will never end.”
