This is the best news we’ve gotten all year. We couldn’t be more thrilled. Cannot thank you all enough for your AMAZING work, dedication and persistence - including cutting deals and making moves *from another country*. Merry Christmas and - in the words of Emmett - “thank you for letting us have our new house.”

"Karen White (on Gretchen's team) is an excellent person to work with. We’ve never dealt with anyone quite so client-focused before. She was with us from the very beginning of the home search, when we were nearly 3,000 miles away; and she was there all the way through our closing date -- and beyond. She found some great listings that we did not see through the web-based tools. We were driving from home to home, she literally spent nearly three whole days in a row with us, bringing snack foods to keep us all going during the marathon search. During that time, she offered all kinds of valuable information for when we moved here. As we narrowed down our search, she offered a lot of thoughtful, objective advice without trying to sway us in one direction or another. She was in our corner while we negotiated price. When the seller (a developer) did not immediately follow up on their promises, she was right there moving them forward. Everything she did felt like it was in our best interest. She’s the perfect embodiment of what a realtor should be, and we’d highly recommend her to anyone."

Thanks ladies for all your hard work!! Gretchen and Karen, you have made this process effortless!

- C. Petot

Gretchen Coley's team was exceptional to work with while we built our home. Gretchen herself came to all of the construction appointments, and if I needed something, and she couldn't help herself, she made it a priority for one of her team members to hop right on it. They were willing to go out of their way to make certain tasks convenient during closing and moving. We love Gretchen, Kelsey, and Karen; and hope to work with them all in the future!

My wife and I have known Gretchen for most of our adult lives and have been witness to her personal and career successes throughout the years. Gretchen brings an unrelenting drive and passion to anything she pursues. Her genuine compassion for people and pursuit of positive outcomes for her associates are two key components of what fuels her desire to work hard for her clients. Gretchen's overall experiences in real estate, as well as her knowledge of processes exercised throughout a real estate transaction, have truly been a benefit to us. I highly recommend Gretchen Coley if you are seeking a qualified agent who is willing to work hard for you to obtain your dream home.

Gretchen is a total rockstar!! She is a true professional.

Gretchen has a market knowledge of the local communities in the Triangle that is vast and diverse. She listened to our needs about our relocation from NY. She match us with towns that had the vibe we were looking for and then down to neighborhoods. When we came in town to look at homes we only needed to see six before we purchased our dream home in Raleigh. Gretchen's knowledge saved us time and money. We love our home, neighborhood, and town. Thank you Gretchen!

- C. Christos

I had been interviewing agents to sell my home for 3 weeks when I found Gretchen from a video tour of a home she was selling in Raleigh.  I was so impressed with style and expertise and how she brought the home to life that I called her immediately to see it. I ended up buying that home and hiring Gretchen to sell our current home which she did in 2 days.  Her Marketing Plan was far superior to any other agents and I found her use of technology and video far and above that of the other agents I interviewed.  If you are looking to sell your home, save yourself some time and call Gretchen first!

- Sally Magglio

My family worked with Gretchen to sell our home when my husband got relocated. She was caring considerate and a total professional. She handled us like we were her only client. Our home sold in less than 24 hours. I highly recommend Gretchen and her team if you are looking to sell your home.

- Kristie Sims

Gretchen makes a stressful life event like selling your home easy.  She is a total pro who knows how to navigate the sale and negotiations without the stress that comes with it.  Thank you, Gretchen for helping us sell our home so quickly. You Rock.

- LeeAnn Moore

Gretchen is a true Holly Springs expert. You could say her family helped to take Holly Springs from 700 people in 1989 to where it is today by developing it's largest neighborhood Sunset Ridge, Sunset Oaks, and the rest of the Sunset family. So when it came time to sell my home in Holly Springs she was the ONLY choice for me.

If there was a sixth star to give, Gretchen Coley would get seven. Expect excellence and get more than expected.

This is THE DREAM TEAM. Our experience was absolute MAGIC. We moved from Georgia to North Carolina, and it was a breeze because of Gretchen and her team (I'm lookin' at you Karen White!)

- Kendra A.

Karen is an outstanding realtor. She totally understood our needs and is very responsive and a real pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Karen as a realtor.

- Monique A.

THE BEST. We haven't always had great experiences with realtors throughout the years - we thought that was just the norm. Working with Gretchen Coley and her team lets you know that everybody else is just doing it wrong. 
I found Gretchen Coley through Instagram when we were contemplating our move to Raleigh. I loved the fact that she was using social platforms to sell for her clients. I could tell she knew the area, was well connected, and would do whatever it took to give her clients the best experience. 
We worked with her and Karen White (also the best) for our home search, and from Call #1 all the way through closing, they were unbelievable. 
They are responsive, they communicate with you through every step, they fight for you, and always have your best interests in mind. 
Home buying isn't always a fun process, but this team made it one of the best buying experiences we've had. I would and will recommend Gretchen Coley, Karen White, and their entire team to anybody thinking about moving to the Raleigh area.

Thank you for everything you did for us!

- David A.

Karen White is simply the best agent ever! So thorough and personable. Wish she could have handled our Florida home also. Thanks to everyone at Tate!!!

- Andy Showerman

We relocated from Washington, DC down to Raleigh in early 2019. We interviewed a ton of different realtors to try and find someone that would be responsive, truly listen and respect our wishes. We stumbled on Gretchen Coley's team and after reading reviews asked to work directly with Karen White. Karen is a rockstar! She is easy to work with, thoughtful and always on the ball. She listened to what we wanted (a truly walkable neighborhood - a hard thing to find in the area!) and hunted down a great house pre-market using her network. Along the way she helped us problem-solve some tricky situations, provided high-quality recommendations for other service providers in the area and went above and beyond for us time and time again. As first time homebuyers there were ton of things we didn't know and Karen patiently explained everything and answered all our questions. We'll be loyal to Karen for life and would highly recommend her without reservation to anyone!

- Katie Test

Gretchen and her team are second to none! We contacted her for advice on when to list our home, what to ask for it, and whether or not we should we should hire a staging company. She gave the perfect advice as the house went under contract in under 1 week! Along with phenomenal advice, she  pulled together the staging company and the handyman needed to get it under contract and to closing. Anytime I called or texted her, she was patient and willing to help in any way. I’ll recommend her to all my friends and family!

- Matthew and Sarah White

I contacted Gretchen Coley-Allen Tate to help me locate the perfect home in Raleigh. As a resident of Miami, FL, I had no idea where to even begin my search. Gretchen helped me find the perfect home in Raleigh. She took her time to show me several homes which met the criteria I was searching for.  She understood I was looking for the best possible quality of life for me and my family. Not only did she help me find an amazing home, but she also informed me of what a great investment it was for me. This was my first home purchase and I was dreading the process, especially from a long distance. I trusted Gretchen every step of the way, and she did not disappoint. Buying a home while being in another city could not have been possible without Gretchen's attentiveness and the dedication she has with her clients. This transaction was a breeze! I am now a home owner and I want to thank Gretchen and her team for all of their support. Their service was exceptional!

- Alma R.

Helped me sell my home for above my asking price in 2 weeks. Negotiated for us down to the penny to get what we wanted for our house. Assisted us with getting our house ready and solved ALL problems during my contract period when the deal could have fallen through if she wasn't so responsive and  took action the way she did. I highly, highly recommended!

- Jessica T.

Gretchen is a dedicated Professional! Her passion to help her clients find the best possible home/property for their needs is unparalleled.
