Cynthia Pensiero-DeFazio

About Me

I am proud to be an award winning agent and Top Producer with The Allen Tate Company! I take pride in caring for my clients as though they were my own family. I am proud to say most (90%) of my business comes from referrals. I am Blessed and Honored! In 2018 I am proud to say I started a Team! The sole purpose of this was to serve my clients even more effectively! I hired a full time licensed assistant, a closing coordinator and a buyer specialist. Together we form" Cynthia Pensiero-DeFazio and Associates of Allen Tate! " I have been in the Top 100 Agents in all of Allen Tate for the past three years. This is an incredible honor and Blessing! 

 I have a beautiful daughter who is a graduate of NC State!  She is now employed by Red Hat in Raleigh! (Go Wolfpack!) as well as two amazing  step children (Twins!) who are attending  and thriving at ECU! (Go Pirates!)  My family is my greatest Blessing and Joy in life! I am also a child of God, animal lover (ok- animal nut!), nature fanatic,  fine art enthusiast as well as classical music. We support the Charlotte Symphony! My husband is in the mortgage industry and a native New Yorker! Our evenings are spent cooking healthy and delicious meals , walking the dogs-actually they walk us, (we have 3 rescues and we love them dearly) and attending events at our church. I am an avid reader- you will always  find me with books  by my side!  (As well as coffee or tea!) 

I am also a former Mrs. America! In 1996 I was crowned Mrs. Ohio in 1996 and won the National Title of Mrs. America on September 21, 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada. You can read about it on our blog here It was quite a year of traveling and meeting wonderful people from all over the country. I will treasure these memories forever! 

(I can also be spotted on a local and national Financial Planning Show as the cohost! I have been Blessed to meet top financial advisors from around the nation and they all specialize in planning for retirement. Ask me about this incredible honor!) It is a busy life, but God has Blessed me greatly and my greatest joy is serving others. 

Thank you for choosing me to be your agent for life! I promise you will feel like part of the family! I also hold the  Red Penguin Designation- Quality Service!
