Carin Miller is without question one of the finest realtors in this area. She is a professionals professional. I now have only one person that I would go to to sell my home or guide me in finding and buying a home. She may not be an insurance company but you are certainly in good hands when Carin Miller is on your side.
We can't thank Carl enough for his professionalism and assistance during our transaction. His many years in the real estate experience and expertise were apparent every step of the way.
My family and I recently relocated to the Charlotte area from Dallas, TX. We had the pleasure of working with Carl Richmond. Carl is extremely professional, friendly, attentive to ones needs, and always available. Should my family and I ever need a Realtor again while in NC, I would certainly reach out to Carl.

I can't speak highly enough of Steven Lorimer from Allentate as a real estate agent. Our buying process was by far not the simplest, and yet the whole time Steven made it seem easy. He usually answered my questions before I knew to ask and every time there was something to do, Steven went ahead and did all the prep work. All I had to do was approve the decisions and items. He's professional, personal, and responsive. I'll be using Steven for sure next time I go to buy or sell a home with certainty.
We just completed our 7th transaction with Carl (4 sell/3 purchase) and can't say enough good things about working with Carl. He was with us every step of the way and walked us through each part of the process. His experience in the South Charlotte market is invaluable as far as evaluating both neighborhoods and individual properties.
Completed this last night in reply to an earlier email.

The service and assistance provided by your agent, Ellen Milano, was nothing but outstanding! She showed us numerous homes and was able to narrow our showings to homes that better matched our likes and preferences.
We selected two developments and one floor plan and found exactly what we were looking for. The seller accepted our offer and Ellen guided us through "due diligence", home inspection and closing. She made it much less stressful and an almost enjoyable process due to her knowledge and experience.
We just closed on our dream home, and are literally trying to figure out how to spread the word about Steven Lorimer so others can experience the commitment, professionalism and personal investment that we got. As a recently retired military family looking to start our next life chapter with our two daughters, we decided to build a new home from 3 states away in a city we had not lived in. This could have been a nightmare. I now sit and type this in my beautiful new home (we closed 2 days ago!), and the reason it was such a positive experience is hands-down -- Steven Lormer! In Steven, we got just what we needed -- we didn't just get an agent, we got a partner, a seasoned advisor, a boots-on-the-ground loyal advocate, a disciplined negotiator/administrator on our behalf, and a trusted friend.
Of all the realtors we've had in our multiple military moves, Steven is by far the one who we felt most consistently "had our backs." I can't tell you the comfort that brought us as we navigated the purchase and construction process from a distance. He was consistently just a text, FaceTime or phone call away, and always represented our interests and kept us informed on process and progress.
He took the initiative to push information, provided pictures, asked questions we didn't know to ask, held people accountable on our behalf, and made sure all the steps in the process were meticulously attended to. And he always did it in a manner that was comforting and in-tune with our goals/interests. My wife and I literally said, "He makes us feel like we're his only client!" (but we sure aren't)!
Bottom line, this guy is now family to us. Character matters. Expertise matters. Engagement, initiative, patience, professionalism, personality...these all matter. And Steven Lorimer delivers brilliantly on each one. if you are looking for the realtor who doesn't just want to close deals, but wants you to feel safe going through this important process, then you want Steven.
(NOTE to Allen Tate -- I would be happy to be videotaped or interviewed for any marketing. I speak professionally, so I think my wife and I could offer something you could use)
The Tate organization is by far the best group we have ever used, period!
This was my first time working with Steven Lorimer. Steven was amazing and assisted me with the purchase of my new home. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family.
Personal attentive service the whole way! Steven worked with me for over a year to find what fit my family best! John kicked in on my mortgage and Zach handled my insurance. Great experience overall! Thanks to the team at Allen Tate!
When we moved here from outside the Washington, D.C. area, our intention was to rent a home for an extended period of time until we found the exact area to settle in permanently. With me being a North Carolinian and my husband a good old Northern boy, I wanted to ensure this situation was going to work out for him. It didn't take long before we realized that we missed being homeowners and began to ask around about Realtor recommendations. I even connected with a few to help us find a rental when we moved here and sensed this was not a top priority since neither of them followed up with me when they found out we were renting. Business must be that good if a Realtor can ignore the short-term client even if there is hope it will convert to a long-term client.
We continued to make connections and they continued to not follow up. I personally felt like I was dating again! I then had the great chance to have a professional headshot made at Bazemore Studio and mentioned my predicament to the owner. He referred a Realtor to me that he guaranteed would be incredibly reliable and customer focused. Only half-believing him, I snatched his business card and vowed to call him. Surprisingly he answered his phone and actually had a conversation with me! Oh my, what just happened? Steve Lorimar quickly became the Realtor we would connect with and trust to help us find the perfect home somewhere in Charlotte. We have to applaud his patience because we went from location to location to location, then style, to style to style. At one point it was a potential scrape in Myers Park to a new reno in Plaza Midwood. Through it all, Steve was accommodating, patient, honest, and reliable. We changed our minds so many times that I do not know how he kept up. Then HE found the home that we bought by piecing together all of our likes, really likes and no-ways. He listened and asked questions for all the right reasons. I think he knew us better than we knew ourselves. When the time came to make a final decision, it was so easy and natural because we had ruled out all of the noise along the way. Debriefing after every tour with Steve prevented us from needing to go back and do all of the homework. We knew this was right and time to move forward. We were in great hands with Steve and time to bring it home, no pun intended.
Steve Lorimer initiated and maintained the ultimate home-buying experience for us. During a stressful time, diminishing unnecessary distractions and chaos is essential and we are grateful to Steve for having done that for us from the initial meeting until after we closed. Without being pushy and aggressive, we always knew he was close by when we needed him. I wish we could clone him and distribute him everywhere we do business!
Many thanks to Steve and all of the Allen Tate support team that helped us with a successful close on a home that we love very much.
This was our second time working with Steven Lorimer and we will continue to use him as our realtor! Not only did he make our first time home buying experience fantastic, but he made the second time even better. We are younger home buyers and Steven does a wonderful job at educating us about the home buying process. We feel comfortable and have trusted him with many of our home buying decisions. He makes the home buying process as stress free as possible. Even after the home buying process, Steven continues to keep up with us and always treats us as his customers. We are so thankful for the way he handles his work and would recommend him to anyone!
Carin Miller could not have been an easier realtor to work with as I was buying my home. She returned texts immediately, kept me in the loop when I would get nervous, explained about things I didn’t know, and really went the extra mile even when she didn’t have to. She seemed to really truly care and I told my husband it was nice to work with someone who not only wasn’t jaded but who seemed to be genuinely excited for us
We absolutely loved working with Steven! He was extremely responsive, very friendly and personable, and very patient with our ever so changing minds. His personality made home buying way more less stressful. Our relationship with Steven went from being our realtor to a friend! I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!

We had first talked to Gail Katz who was lincensed in NC. We were looking in both NC and SC for a home, so Gail made sure she found Valerie Costano to help us in our SC search and stay involved in the process even after we decided to make SC our new residence.

Carl was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and great communication. Betsy was fantastic! She was thorough, wonderful communication and an overall great (and super sweet) person to work with!
Carl was a great resource to us. We appreciate his expertise, patience and responsiveness but mostly his kindness. We will gladly use him again.
I really enjoyed working with Carl Richmond’s Team. They were responsive, knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Zach and the Allen Tate insurance team were awesome to work with as well. Provided several options and great rates. Thank you all!
All around excellent service. Knows the market, and knows how to get the deal done! Would use again and again.
We have purchased three new homes and sold two homes through Carl during the past twelve years and have been extremely satisfied. He knows the market very well and truly cares about his clients and their needs.
Having worked with Carl to purchase my home it seemed natural to call him when it came time for me to sell. I was confident that I would get the same great service that I did when I was a buyer and he did not let me down. Carl can certainly work ‘both sides of the fence’.
Over the past five years we have relocated three times and working with Carl was by far the best experience we have had. He listened to our needs and wants and we were able to find the perfect home in a very short amount of time.
