We worked with Cynthia, Laurie and the Allen Tate team for our first home purchase. Every step of the way and every interaction we had was positive. They helped us navigate a tough market for buyers and land in the perfect home for us. Being first time home buyers their guidance was appreciated and really confirmed we were in the right place. We ended up using Allen Tate for the Mortgage and Insurance as well. Bobby on the mortgage team and Mike their insurance agent helped us understand everything easily and guided us through the whole process. We did not expect to use the same team for all aspects of the purchase, but the service was vastly superior and the price was better as well - it made for an easy choice! I would and will recommend Cynthia and her whole team to anybody looking to buy or sell their home. If you go with them, they will treat you like family and you will not be disappointed! Thanks to Cynthia, Laurie, Bobby, Mike and the whole Allen Tate team.
We have been involved in several moves over the past few years and none have been as smooth sailing as our listing and closing with Cynthia. Her knowledge of our neighborhood translated to a higher listing price than we would have believed possible. And we got it! She is experienced and knowledgeable, and always right on top of everything. If feedback and communication are important to you, you will be highly satisfied with working with Cynthia. She is friendly, professional, calm, responsive, and just a great human being. We are 100% happy with our experience with her and so thankful we chose her as our Broker.
I can't even begin to express how grateful we are to Cynthia for all she has done. Selling a home and moving is a very stressful experience and Cynthia helped make the process much more manageable and pleasant. Cynthia went above and beyond every step of the way. When it was time to sell our home I knew Cynthia was the realtor we wanted. And we were definitely not disappointed. If you are looking for a realtor who is kind, professional, caring, perceptive, organized and experienced Cynthia is the one you want. Thank you Cynthia for being you and being so amazing!

Our experience with Cynthia and her team exceeded our expectations. From the video tour, pictures, constant communication, and wealth of knowledge from her and her team, we could not have been happier and made it a seamless process. Thanks again for everything!

Cynthia is an amazing realtor that goes out of her way to make sure you get top dollar for your house as well as making sure your whole experience goes smoothly. She truly cares about you and your family and will go to bat on your account for anything. Cynthia’s team is wonderful as well and the whole team is always there for you whenever you need them. They have an excellent line of communication with each other as well as the client. We had some setbacks in the process of the sale of our home and Cynthia and her team were on it faster then I could even make the phone call to them. They got everything straightened out and were by our side supporting us the whole way through. Thanks for a wonderful experience!!!
Cynthia's flair for building a robust marketing plan during the height of the COVID-19 crisis enabled us to quickly market and sell our home. The drone video allowed potential buyers to thoroughly view our house without stepping inside it. This coupled with the professional staging of our home and assisting us with accurate pricing put us in a position for a quick sale with multiple offers. Cynthia demonstrated professionalism and timely communication.

Cynthia was referred to us by trusted family friends and we could not have been happier with our home-buying experience. She is extremely knowledgeable and was always there for us to patiently guide us through the process. As new residents of North Carolina, it was important for us to work with an agent who we could trust. Cynthia has made our move seamless and we are lucky to have her not only as our agent, but a dear friend.
We met Cynthia during a relocation move and she has been a dream to work with. She is professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. We bought a new construction home and having her represent us was very helpful. She was the perfect realtor to help us transition to living in Charlotte full time!
Simply put Cynthia is a pro.
Cynthia has been an absolute blessing. This was our first realtor experience and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to handle it for us. Cynthia has been a pleasure to work with every step of the way.
When my fiancé and I first talked to Cynthia, it felt like we were best friends. She is so sweet and great at communication. This was our first time buying a home and she made the process very easy. I would give her 10 stars if they had that option! She is the best and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

TRULY BLESSED! There are no words to express how excellent of a home buying experience we have had. Cynthia, Laurie, and Val were AMAZING! In the midst of everything COVID, Cynthia and her team made sure our process remained seamless and stress-free. They made sure every “t” was crossed and every “i” was dotted along the way. These ladies were also our biggest advocates when issues arose that we didn’t even know needed addressed. Cynthia managed to be super congenial while always maintaining complete professionalism. And we LOVE that she worked so hard to get us such a great deal on our home! Due to the current pandemic, we originally shifted our goal from finding a “forever home” to finding a “good-enough-for-now home”. But somehow, some way, Cynthia was able to find us a home that works PERFECTLY for our family! We can’t imagine ever leaving our new home, but if we do, we certainly will be calling upon Cynthia again. And just like my future colleagues who originally suggested I reach out to her, we would EAGERLY recommended Cynthia and her team to our friends and family if they should ever decide to call the Charlotte area “home.”
Working with Cynthia is always a pleasure. We worked with Cynthia on our very first home purchase and it was such a great experience that we enlisted her help again when searching for another home. She is always so responsive and on top of things. She makes the home search and buying process a lot less stressful than it typically is. We are so grateful for Cynthia's help in finding our new home!
Every time I tell people about our homebuying process their mouths drop. Cynthia made the process so incredibly painless, it was spectacular. As first-time homebuyers all we heard from friends and family was what a daunting process it would be. Cynthia was with us every step of the way, answering our questions as soon as we sent them and acting as if we were her only clients. That was really the best part, when Cynthia was with us or when we would call or email, we got her full attention. There was literally not one point in the process where I felt any kind of annoyance or aggravation as Cynthia’s client. I could not imagine, nor would I want to ever use another real estate agent after the great experience we had.
If I could give Cynthia 10 stars, I would! From start to finish Cynthia was professional, receptive and extremely supportive. She was able to show us options that allowed us to narrow down our wants/needs to find the absolute perfect home. Not only is she a top notch realtor with amazing connections but she is a wonderful caring person who puts her clients needs first! Couldn't recommend Cynthia any higher, if you are lucky enough to work with her then you should know you're in the best of hands! I will recommend her to everyone I know!
Cynthia was amazing throughout the entire experience! She selected outstanding properties and really listened to what our needs and wants were in our future home. She answered any question we had incredibly quickly - and she always did it so cheerfully! We really enjoyed our experience with Cynthia and wholeheartedly recommend her!!!
Of the 6 realtors I have worked with to buy/sell my house in the US over the years, Cynthia was by far the best! She understood our detailed requirements very well and was patient and supportive as we explored options in a city new to us. Once we had identified the house that fit our needs, I found the process of making offers and negotiating to be very smooth and stress free. Cynthia had really great insight and suggestions all the way through closing, every little detail taken care of. Proud to call her my friend now!!
Cynthia is an amazing realtor! She’s a great balance of strong and soft. Shes seasoned and you can trust her. She’s got great communication skills and is very quick to respond when needed. We highly recommend Cynthia, you will NOT go wrong with her!
Cynthia was absolutely amazing! She was always available for our questions and responded VERY quickly to our texts and emails. I honestly can't imagine how she could have done a better job. We're SO happy she was our realtor and STRONGLY recommend her to others!!! She's AMAZING!!!
I am so grateful to have been introduced to Cynthia Pensiero-DeFazio through a personal recommendation. She is truly an exceptional realtor and amazing person and I am so happy to have chosen her to represent me as a seller. From market analysis, identifying ways to enhance your property, and marketing your property to buyers and other agents, she guides you through the home selling process with regular communication and updates at each step. I couldn't have been more pleased with Cythnia and Allen Tate.

We can't say enough about Cynthia! She is completely professional, thorough, and knowledgeable. It was such a pleasure to work with Cynthia, and she made everything seem so easy. She is positive, warm and caring, and all this in a bundle of energy and excitement. We would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling property in the Charlotte market!

We have sold and purchased many homes over the years. Cynthia has gone above and beyond all expectations that we could have anticipated. Cynthia's professiona!ism, expertise, insight and unwavering support made our experience, during challenging times, special and manageable. Cynthia has the unique quality of being empathic and insightful, critical to the process of selling a home.
Cynthia was fabulous! It's clear she has a tremendous understanding of the real estate market. She kept me informed via text message and email throughout the entire home selling process. She guided me on recommendations as it related to the buyers requests. She was there with me every step of the way.

We relocated to the area and were on a quick timeline to find a home. Cynthia worked with us to identify houses that fit our profile and was flexible scheduling with us. Cynthia and her team were great at providing their input and advice throughout the process. After finding our home, she also saved us several thousand dollars by negotiating a Home Warranty and having the buyer pay for closing costs. Overall Cynthia, her team, and Allen Tate were great to work with!
Cynthia is one of the most professional individuals I've ever worked with. I purchased my new home a day ago, and I was incredibly nervous, but Cynthia made the whole process a dream. She is not only extremely effective at what she does, but just a lovely person! My closing process was smooth, Cynthia and her team were a dream to partner with, they are on it! 100% of the time. There is no one else I would ever recommend.

Cynthia came recommended to us by a co-worker. She lived up to the hype! Cynthia was great and we’ve already recommended her to a friend. We wanted to get our house on the market quickly and sell quickly. She did a great job with the pictures, brochures, and marketing. Our home had a lot of interest sold quickly! Cynthia is reliable, quick to respond, and flexible! Her professional demeanor and bubbly personality make her very nice to work with during a stressful time in your life. We’d recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
Cynthia and her assistant, Laurie Hoots, made our first-time home buying experience as smooth of a process as possible. They were both incredibly responsive, moving swiftly when needed, and seeming to put the needs of our purchase contract and closing process before anything else they had going on. We could not have made it through this process without a team this dedicated to the client.
Cynthia was an awesome realtor!! She was so patient with us and knowledgeable on the area. Relocating down to Charlotte was made so much easier by Cynthia; she even took us on a tour to help us acclimate to the area. She helped us find a great house and close in the time we needed. She is incredibly responsive and always so warm and caring towards me and my family! Even got our 6 month old some great toys to enjoy during our house hunting trip. Thank you Cynthia!
Cynthia was, as always, amazing to work with and made the whole (stressful) process so much easier! We couldn’t imagine going through the home buying/selling process without her!
We were so blessed to be introduced to Cynthia through my husband's job relocation department. She was so patient and kind from minute one, making a new and scary experience a comfortable one! Not once did she make us feel rush or pressured, even when we switched gears and had her find us rental properties instead. She had the insight to recognize that as the right move for us at the time. It ultimately lead to her assistance in building our DREAM HOME!!! She was there every step of the way and we fully trusted her advice and guidance from dealing with the builder, choosing our designs, participating in walk throughs, to closing day! We feel like we gained a life-long friend, and we will continue to refer her to everyone who needs a relator. She is truly wonderful at her job and is a truly wonderful person!
Cynthia was there for us through thick and thin as we weee in the process of building a new home. Honesty and courtesy come to mind when I think of Cynthia and we were lucky to have got to know her and her team during this process. I would highly recommend her if you are in need of superior customer service and unmatched representation. Thanks Cynthia!
As a former Realtor, I began my home search without the assistance of a Buyer’s Agent, visiting Realtor’s open houses and making appointments with the listing agents to view other properties of interest. My first encounter with Cynthia was at an open house for one of her listings. After a second visit, I decided that home was not for me. But I was so favorably impressed with Cynthia, I asked her to assist me in my home search. Cynthia is the consummate professional Realtor, while at the same time being incredibly personable and patient. With her assistance and diligence, I now have a home that could have been designed to my personal specifications. I would highly recommend Cynthia to anyone, including family and friends, looking to buy a home or is thinking of selling their current home.
Cynthia is terrific to work with! She is responsive, kind, on the ball, and overall a wonderful person. It is amazing how quickly she responds to emails, texts and phone calls, while also providing her undivided attention when she is with you in person. You can tell she truly loves what she does and always has a smile on her face. We would definitely recommend Cynthia and her team to anyone we know looking for a realtor in this market!

To say Cynthia was an absolute pleasure to work with is an understatement! My fiancé and I are young and relocating to the Charlotte area for work so to have such a knowledgeable, patient, honest, kind and funny realtor made a world of difference! Cynthia answered all of our questions, without ever making us feel like they were silly, and seamlessly guided us through each step of the process. She provided great advice without ever pressuring us and she absolutely had our best interests at heart. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Cynthia and are blessed to know her!
