Allen Tate Realtors
NC & SC REALTOR®/ Broker
Dear Customers and Friends...
TESTIMONIAL: Kim & Leon Topalian (Executive Vice President, Nucor Coporation)
Dear Pat (Pat Riley CEO Allen Tate), I wanted to take just a moment of your time to provide you a little feedback on our recent home process. While we’ve never met, our nephew Victor Query reached out to you on our behalf to find a Realtor to help us in our journey. From there you got Jesse and Sarah Samples to contact us and start the process.
Moving 9 times over the last 20 years has taught us a lot however, one of the biggest factors for us working with a Realtor is the ability to connect, be open and comfortable enough to share our likes and dislikes so they can help narrow down the search. We connected immediately with Jesse and Sarah, and they both went above and beyond in our home buying process. Their work ethic, perseverance and knowledge lead Kim and I to our “forever” home here in Charlotte, NC! For that we’ll be forever grateful.
We just wanted to say thank you Pat, and also to let you know just how much Kim and I appreciated Jesse and Sarah and that you have 2 of the most professional, hardest working, yet down to earth agents whom we would recommend to any of our friends, family and or other executives at Nucor who will be moving in the future.
Leon and Kim Topalian

Jesse and Sarah
sold our home in Providence Country Club….IN 2 DAYS!!
My wife and I owe it all to Team Samples. We had 3 different agencies lined up to meet with about putting our home on the market, but after meeting with Jesse and Sarah we didn’t even need to waste our time meeting with anyone else. The presentation they did was just what we needed. Sarah’s home staging and Jesse’s multi-media work and their combined market knowledge were some of their strengths that hooked us. After agreeing to work with them; Sarah walked through our home and let us know how she would stage each room to help make the home look at its best. Jesse then spent an entire day photographing our home for the marking material and when we say marketing material, we are not talking homemade pictures from a camera phone; we are talking the real deal, professional work. The book that they put together was top notch and left a really strong impression on potential buyers. The weekend our house went on the market,
one of our former neighbors said it was like I-485 during rush hour on our street there were so many people trying to get into our house due to the pre-marketing that Jesse and Sarah had done.
From the start of the process to closing, which happened to be a lot quicker than we had expected, Jesse and Sarah were on top of everything and had answers to questions before we even asked them. If we ever move again, there wouldn’t even be a discussion, Jesse and Sarah are the ones to sell our home quickly and maximize our sale price. If you don’t believe us, ask the Samples to give you our number and we will tell you even more.

TESTIMONIAL: Kate & Brad Schumacher
Jesse & Sarah were both awesome beyond words!
Jesse and Sarah Samples exceeded our high expectations in both selling our home
and helping us through a lengthy short sale process to purchase a new home.
They sold our current home in less than 3 days on the market
brought us multiple offers in that short amount of time!
They were fantastic to work with and their knowledge of the market and the area was invaluable.
Jesse's photographs of our home were stunning and extremely professional and high quality.
We cannot say enough great things about them-the experience of working with them is top notch.
We have recommended them to many of our friends who need a Realtor
and all have given them the same praise!
Kate & Brad Schumacher
TESTIMONIAL: Mary Margaret & Sam Murray
Jesse and Sarah were a perfect fit for our family when we were looking for professional and personalized service.
Jesse's pictures showed our house in the best possible way
and Sarah's staging was able to use items we already owned to show our house to its greatest potential.
If we ever need a realtor in the future,
we know the Samples will meet our every expectation.

TESTIMONIAL: Amelia & Jason Napodano
Sarah and Jesse were fantastic to work with and we highly recommend them to our friends and family.
They helped us find and build our brand new home
at The Club at Longview.
Jesse’s knowledge of the Charlotte and Marvin market gave us confidence when selecting the right area we chose to build;
and he was incredibly helpful in designing the floor plan and key features to our home, always keeping
an astute eye on cost and resale value.
Sarah’s expertise in design, color selection, and assistance
in picking out both lighting and plumbing fixtures kept us sane,
and we simply could not have built our dream home without her!
Thank you both so much!
Amelia & Jason Napodano
TESTIMONIAL: Brent Blake
Jesse & Sarah are wonderful individuals who truly care about their clients.
They listed & sold my house in The Club at Longview
...and at the same time worked tirelessly to find my family our perfect new home!
Jesse took amazing pictures and did the marketing of our current house
while Sarah spent countless hours searching for ideal properties for our new home.
Thank you both for your professionalism and relentless effort to go above and beyond at every opportunity.
We feel blessed beyond words with our new home!
TESTIMONIAL: Meghann & Tim Murphy
This is a little story about our experience with Sarah and Jesse Samples. Our family has been through a number of corporate relocations. We have worked with real estate professionals to move into or out of 5 houses in the last 10 years. That's a total of 9 real estate transactions. We worked with Sarah and Jesse to sell our primary residence in South Charlotte, NC (Providence Country Club). We knew them through the community and they are very well regarded. Our sales goals were to maximize the sale price and minimize time on the market. Sarah and Jesse developed a comprehensive sales and marketing plan in order to meet these objectives. We proceeded with their recommendations which included a few updates to the home and landscaping, staging of rooms etc. Jesse also happens to moonlight as a professional photographer. He came in and shot the home and property and worked with Sarah to develop marketing materials. All said and done, the home looked amazing.
We wish we had engaged their services when we moved in! We listed, were met with multiple offers and proceeded to a successful closing. From the first day we met to the last day of closing, Sarah and Jesse went above and beyond at all stages of the process.
Hands down, they are the best team we have ever worked with.
If we ever find our way back to Charlotte, our first call will be to the Samples.
Meghann & Tim Murphy
TESTIMONIAL: Kristina & Paul Tucker
We were very pleased with Jesse and Sarah Samples.
From our first meeting to the closing of our home in Chatelaine, both treated us like we were their top priority at all times.
Jesse is an incredible photographer and Sarah's knowledge about staging homes went a long way toward making our home as attractive as possible.
Jesse and Sarah made insightful recommendations and we were able to sell our home in the time frame we were seeking.
Jesse and Sarah were recommended to us by friends
and we will continue to highly recommend them to others.

TESTIMONIAL: Karen & Chuck Kern
I have bought and sold a few houses in my time and, although satisfied by my brokers, had not ever been blown away before. That is until we hired Sarah and Jesse Samples. From the moment I met them I immediately connected with them. Not only were they realistic about what I should price my house at, but Sarah spent 12 hours staging my home for me! I felt like I was on an HGTV show! It looks amazing. Jesse came in and took professional level pictures which created gorgeous brochures
and they hit the ground running!
We had 15 showings the first week and sold our house on day 6.
We closed in July. Sounds easy, right?
No! Sarah and Jesse had to hold my hand through the inspection process,
keep me calm (an impossible task), and my husband sane
(also an impossible task based on my craziness).
They are and continue to be a huge support through this whole process.
We feel so lucky to have them on our side!
If you're looking to buy or sell, look no further than PCC's own real estate moguls
(they also go by therapist, or friend)!

TESTIMONIAL: Tracy & Jim Smith
Jesse and Sarah listened to our wants, desires and needs while looking for our new home.
They took care to only show properties that were of interest to us.
Once we found that perfect place, they marketed and sold our previous home with the utmost professionalism.
We will recommend and use their services again...
It was a pleasure working with both of you and appreciate all of your help.
You would be amazed at the house today. We’ve made so many changes...
But most of all, we absolutely LOVE it.

TESTIMONIAL: Sarah & Chris Kalb
We had a great experience with Sarah and Jesse Samples,
who are realtors with Allen Tate, one of the top agencies in the Charlotte area
and one with which Premier has a relationship.
I would highly recommend Sarah and Jesse as you embark on a home search in the Charlotte area.
First, you get a two for one deal (they work as a team),
second their knowledge of the market, attention to detail, and commitment to finding the right home are second to none.
Finally they are easy and fun to work with.
I would give them my highest recommendation.
