Without the assistance of Dorthe, it is very likely that I would have missed numerous critical details in my home buying process, which would have doubled or tripled an already stressful transaction. She was there every step of the way to provide guidance based on her experience and expertise. Not only was she knowledgeable regarding the purchase of a home, she also had numerous contacts and recommended resources including but not limited to home inspectors, settlement/closing attorneys, insurance, and repair people.
She provided end-to-end services and made sure that I was aware of key points in the process, and when needed gave me advance warning of upcoming items, both critical and general good-to-know information.
Dorthe always exhibited professionalism and ensured that my best interests were kept in the forefront. She listened and paid attention - this was especially critical in the beginning when I outlined the type of home and amenities I was looking for. Using my input she came up with several properties that fit most if not all of my criteria. This was very important to me because I had to travel from out of state and didn't want to waste my time looking at homes that I wouldn't be interested in. She was so good at showing me only homes I would like that I ended up finding the right house on my very first house hunting trip.
I would recommend Dorthe to anyone looking for a home in the greater Charlotte, NC area (including South Carolina). When and if it comes time for me to move again, I will be reaching out to her to represent me as a selling agent (if she's still available).
We recently worked with Dorthe as our listing agent, who managed to get us a full price offer on our house in 1 day. She worked very hard with the appraisers to ensure they understood the value of our home so we could get the strongest market value at the time of the sell. Additionally, she held our hand through a contingent purchase of the home we're in now. Contingent transactions are nothing shy of a miracle so navigating those waters takes an experienced agent. The property had lots of unknowns, mounds of red tape and pressing deadlines that required legal and real estate expertise. Had Dorthe not been our agent, I am certain this transaction would have fallen through. With complete confidence, I would recommend Dorthe and the Allen Tate team for both sides of your real estate transaction.
Dorthe was knowledgeable, professional and a huge asset in selling our home. She went above and beyond her responsibilities to create a smooth process for us. As a matter of fact, we don’t believe she ever answered a question with a response other than “no problem, I’ll take care of it”. We were out of town quite a lot and she was very helpful.
We have bought and sold numerous homes over the years and Dorthe stands out as top-notch in the field. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dorthe to a friend or family member who is buying or selling a home.
We began looking to relocate to the south Charlotte area in 2017 from San Diego. After researching the area we decided on the Palisades area with the country club and various amenities. After inquiring regarding a knowledgeable real estate agent who could help us navigate the options and opportunities we were given Dorthe 's name as THE individual who KNEW the area, products, trends in the real estate market. She exhibited exceptional knowledge and professionalism. As a retired banker, I was able to assess her expertise and was totally satisfied with her guidance, experience and strategic inputs to our decision to enter into a contract for a new home construction. She was instrumental in overseeing the project while we were in San Diego and advising on the progress as well as participating in the various inspection phases.
We would recommend her services without reservation confident that her collaboration will contribute significantly to the acquisition of a new or previously owned residence.
We had such a great experience working with Dorthe Havmoeller and would highly recommend her to anyone relocating to Charlotte or just looking to buy a new home in the area. We relocated from Philadelphia earlier this summer and Dorthe worked with us before we moved down here to find a rental that was right for us (enough space and located near our daycare - the only one in the city with openings!). She was very accommodating of my husband's travel schedule and rearranged appointments to fit in showings between his work meetings. She spent time with us up front to really understand what we were looking for and she even went to look at some places on our behalf when we couldn't make it down. I didn't actually see our rental before we moved but I felt confident that it would meet our needs as it had been vetted by Dorthe. Once we moved in early June, we immediately started looking at homes and we were all over the place in terms of location, new construction, building something ourselves, you name it and Dorthe was so patient with us! We viewed several houses multiple times and were even in negotiations with a builder on a lot and floor plans which we ultimately decided not to pursue. After that, we took a break for a couple of weeks until a great house popped up on the MLS and I went to the open house. When I walked in, I knew it was the one and Dorthe managed to get our whole family in for a showing early the next morning (on a Sunday!) and helped us negotiate a great price. She had excellent recommendations for inspectors and our closing was so quick we even had time to get new keys made and still make it into the office. She was incredibly accommodating of our schedules, always meeting us on evenings and weekends and being very flexible when we wanted to shift appointments on late notice. She was also great with our toddler, keeping her entertained and safe while we were touring homes so we could focus on evaluating the homes. We can't say enough great things about Dorthe and we're so happy we found her! She helped us buy our dream home and we don't plan to move any time soon but if we find ourselves in need of a realtor in the future, Dorthe will be our first call.
Ann-Dorthe Havmoeller was amazing. Extremely well with communication and just making us feel comfortable the entire time. When our house went on the market, we had 2 views that same day and one offer. The next day we had 2 more offers and under contract that weekend. She is reliable and goes above and beyond to make the process easy. We will definitely use her in the future. We highly recommend Ann-Dorthe Havmoeller.
Dorthe is an exceptional resource in the Charlotte area to sell your home; she knows the market and has a good sense of how to move traffic into the home and promote visibility and gets offers quickly!
She is also patient and persistent during the closing process and I highly recommend her.
She's also a really nice person to work with and was a great neighbor!
We believe that if you want to successfully buy or sell your home in the Palisades...Dorthe Havmoeller is the only realtor you should call. Dorthe lives in the development and sells exclusively in the Palisades. She knows the selling points of each neighborhood and incorporates this knowledge in all of her marketing; her counsel and preparation of the home for on-site presentations, and her final sales' negotiations.
Her guidance was "right on the mark" when it came to preparing our home for the internet presentation, establishing an accurate asking price, and successfully the negotiating the appraisal process, the inspection, and the closing steps.
During the entire sales process Dorthe utilized the latest technology and her personal time to keep us informed on how prospective buyers were responding to the house. Our 10 year old home was in superb condition, however, our competitors were all of the new developments being built in the area, as well as, 12 new homes in our neighborhood, Whispering Pines.
Given all that...We accepted our second offer in 21 days.
Susie and I are grateful for the opportunity to meet and work with Dorthe Havmoeller. It , was a great experience. We believe that Dorthe far surpassed any expectations we had when we began the process of selling our home. Once again…If you are considering buying or selling a home in the Palisades10-year-old you should call Dorthe Havmoeller.
Dorthe did a great job getting our property sold. There were several struggles along the way with Buyer, but she was able to address those head-ons. We appreciate her hard work for us!
We called on Dorthe after months of inactivity with our previous agent. Having seen the marketing materials she distributes via mail in the Palisades, we decided to list with her.
Dorthe instantly made our home more marketable by improving our photos, increasing our online ad presence, and including our home in numerous publications (including one of her own). She specializes in the Palisades and that is evident in her knowledge of the area. She will price your home correctly based on market trends and is responsive to all your needs. She always works in the best interest of her clients.
If you are looking to buy/sell anywhere near the Palisades, I would highly recommend Dorthe! We've had many realtors over the years and her performance/professionalism is far better than any others we have worked with.
Dorthe has been amazingly helpful from our very first phone call, she always went above and beyond like no agent had done for us in the past. We could not by any more grateful and happy with Dorthe, thanks to her, our loved home went to a great family!
Dorthe is amazing. She was a huge help in finding our new home. I found her online and she reached out to us. After giving her an idea of what we were looking for, she met with us the next day with a list of homes to check out. She knows a lot about the area, the neighborhoods, the schools... all that were huge considerations for us. She has been there to support us during the whole process. She even came to the design center with me to help make selections for our home. I was so thankful because this process was very overwhelming. (She even arrived with coffee for me. I had driven up from Atlanta that morning). If I had a question, she was there to answer. If she didn't know, she knew who to contact. She supported my family and I through the whole process. Upon moving in, she handled HOA paperwork for me, went out of her way to get our pool keys and even let us borrow her air mattress until our furniture arrived. =) Dorthe was a God send. We would have been lost without her. Thank you for everything Dorthe.
We feel so fortunate that our Pennsylvania realtor recommended we work with Dorthe when searching for our "new" home in Charlotte!
Dorthe was extraordinarily helpful throughout the process and using the on-line listings she suggested as well as some we'd found, we were able to target our search appropriately. When touring the homes in the different neighborhoods, she provided valuable narrative regarding the amenities as well as proximity to shopping and the airport.
When our offer on the new home was accepted, we were faced with the problem of having the various utilities connected prior to our moving down to Charlotte! Any anxiety I experienced was quickly eliminated when Dorthe assured me that she would gladly meet these technicians at the house when I could schedule them.
Dorthe made what could have been a stressful home search/purchase process not only efficient but also enjoyable!
We are looking forward to moving into our Charlotte home and cannot begin to adequately express our gratitude to Dorthe for her invaluable help with the process.
To anyone moving within the Charlotte area or from out of state, we highly recommend you work with Dorthe.
Linda and Henry Wagner
I cannot say enough thanks to Dorthe. She was just what you hope an agent will be like. She went out of her way to check on our home after we moved away. She discovered issues that arose and went to bat for us in getting them repaired. She let in workmen and just went far above and beyond what you would expect from an agent. We are so glad we chose Dorthe. You will not regret it either.
Selling our Home in the Bear Creek Community at The Palisades through Havmoeller by Allen Tate.
Dorthe was the best solution for us to sell our home in the Palisades. She is very knowledgeable about the area and has strong relationships, within the marketplace, that will attract buyers quickly!
Dorthe was also tremendously helpful after we left the area in sorting out many complications with our sale and was always available and willing to go the extra distance to move the process forward.
We could not have been happier with Dorthe and her team. She was very proactive in marketing our home and made sure that we were not only on MLS but on other sites and search engines that drove traffic into our home. She was also extremely valuable once our house went under contract as, in addition to assisting in the negotiations, she worked with the buyer's agent to make sure that the appraisal took into account all of the nuances of a lakefront property and took an active role in cleaning up the punch list items after our appraisal. She is a great choice especially if you are selling your home in the Lake Wylie/Fort Mill area.
Working with Dorthe was an absolute pleasure! This was the easiest,most stress-free sell of a home we've ever had. Dorthe KNOWS the Palisades . She provides professional advice and goes the extra mile in service - what a joy to have her as our agent!
Dorthe’s marketing and reach are unparalleled. Her knowledge of the Palisades Community, trends, and momentum really helped us establish a solid listing, which built on strong recent sales. The combination of her marketing, these trends and her recent successes, resulted in a quick transaction that we were very pleased with.
Our agent Mrs. Havmoeller provided us with outstanding service! She was responsive, attentive and supportive throughout our transaction! I would recommend her to anyone looking to selling/buying a home. I would also use her again without a doubt in the future.
We were moving from China to Charlotte and looking to build a new residence. Dorthe worked with us diligently throughout the entire process. She has a high sense of responsibility and is willing to take whatever efforts needed to help us. She saw things from our point of view. In some circumstances, she was more like a consultant/advisor. After all done, Dorthe has become a good friend of us. We would highly recommend her to anybody who is looking for a good realtor.
The process of selling a home is stressful at best as we were faced with a challenging market. After several months of listing our home with another realty company, we changed to Dorthe Havmoeller based on her performance and knowledge of the market and our community. Dorthe was not only knowledgeable and professional but also very personable. She was creative with her marketing strategy and always made herself available to provide assistance during the selling and buying process. We would highly recommend Dorthe as a selling or buying agent.
My husband and I spent 20 plus years in the military and we were preparing for retirement and wanted a change of environment away from a military base, so after much thought and research, we decided to settle in Charlotte, NC. We didn’t know of anyone in the area so we relied on a phone call which was answered by Dorthe Havmoeller. She was very eager to assist in searching for our retirement home. It took only one visit and 3 houses for us to purchase our beautiful forever home. We have absolutely no regrets and we absolutely love our home and neighborhood. Thank you Dorthe, for being not only our realtor but also, our new neighbor and new friend!!!
We recently sold our house in Charlotte using Dorthe Havmoeller as our listing agent. She gave us outstanding guidance during the listing period, and was always available whenever we had questions. She guided us through the negotiation and due diligence periods smoothly. We put the house on the market July 2,2016 and had a contract on July 18, 2016, and closed on September 9, 2016 all with no problems. We can recommend Dorthe Havmoeller to anyone, as she did us an extraordinary job selling our house. Chesley and Jeanne Singleton”
Dorthe was fantastic to work with. I have known her for several years and she brings a calmness to the buying process that helps tremendously during what can be a stressful time. She also cares about her clients and will make certain your voice is heard to the buyer of your home and to the seller of the home you are purchasing. She knows the market very well and has great feedback when you solicit advice from her. She is a class act!
Throughout our journey of selling our home and buying our dream home, Dorthe was an absolute pleasure to work with! She truly cares about her clients and goes above and beyond for them. I would definitely recommend her and use her again in the future!!
Dorthe is an excellent realtor that I would recommend to my friends and family! She is very personable, timely, organized, and patient individual who cares greatly for her clients. We sold our house in under 2 months thanks to her expertise in the market as well as her team of individuals that she has throughout the entire process. Thanks, Dorthe! Cheers…Mario
Moving to a new state tends to be difficult. Issues tend to keep piling up one after another. One issue that we didn’t have to worry about was selling our house. Our realtor, Dorthe Havmoeller, allowed us to breathe easy. With her great understanding of the housing market, she developed a strategy on how to approach selling the house and recommendations on how to market the house.
She went above and beyond to sell our house and to make sure to handle any issues that arose. While we were in our new residence, any repairs that needed to be made with the house were taken care of by her. If that weren’t enough as it was, she would also pick up our mail and deliver it to our PO box weekly. It really went to show how she made a point to treat us like people and not just another customer.
Overall, I was able to worry about other moving logistics while she was handling the selling aspect. There was never a time where I thought, “my house may not sell”. The confidence that Dorthe exhibited infected me and never made me think otherwise. If she lived where I moved to and I had to move again, I would have her as my realtor.
I contacted Dorthe regarding the need for a quick sale of my house. She responded to me very quickly and was on top of making sure our house was on the market quickly and looking its best. Her photographer quality was amazing and the process of selling our home moved seamlessly with her guidance. I would give her a 15 out of 10 for her services and for being very involved in all steps of the process. I would definitely recommend her and choose her again.
Dorthe Havmoeller is a true example of “total professionalism”. She was always pleasant, open, honest, diplomatically direct and had our best interests as a priority. We are not the most patient people and she always responded to our inquiries and requests in a timely manner. We highly recommend her if you are in need of a knowledgeable, efficient and pleasant realtor!
Our experience with Dorthe was great. She sold our house in 2 days!!! She was always very knowledgeable and easy to work with and never pushy.
We have nothing but praise and gratitude for Dorthe’s high-level of professionalism–her calm, generous spirit, her sharp acumen for the real estate world and her expert knowledge of our particular community, The Palisades, made the entire process absolutely perfect. She has total command of all angles of the business–we knew we were in the best of hands. Allen Tate is blessed to have someone of Dorthe’s caliber and grace.
I was very surprised and happy that my home sold so soon. It was less than 2 months. And Dorthe not only listed the house but she also sold it, and was very helpful in setting up a garage sale and being there to help the whole time. I just think Dorthe is the best and I’m now proud to call her my friend.
Dorthe to me defines what a realtor should be. She was “our” agent. Always had our interest in mind. It was a pleasure to have her represent my husband and I on the recent purchase of our home. She is very knowledgeable and is very fair. We felt that she really worked hard for us to get us into the home. She worked with the contractors, external service providers for estimates and additional work that needed to be done with a smile on her face. She was always available even when she was out on vacation. She understands that buying a home is a big deal and was supportive all through the way. We would work with her in a heart beat. Love her!
Dorthe was efficient professional and did a fantastic job. Found us a first class Renter in a very short time we were delighted. Cannot recommend highly enough!
Great job Dorthe and thank you!
Dorthe Havmoeller was responsive, professional and efficient in every aspect of the service she offered to find the right renter for our home. Lu Gibbs
Dorthe is not only a great realtor but a special person she is smart hardworking and non-confrontational the best realtor I’ve ever used.
Working w Ann-Dorthe Havmoeller was a great experience! We have sold many homes over the years and working w her was beyond great. She has great connections in her industry and the photographer she got us was great. She priced the home realistically, we had multiple offers to consider and our home was sold within 3 days! We received $17,500 over asking price. She is a professional and articulate go-getter, she is organized and knows her industry. I highly highly recommend her for buying and/or selling. She is the best! Seriously she is the best! – Mary Anne and Ruben Gonzales, Charlotte NC
Dorthe was great in helping us build and purchase our dream home in a great community. She attended all the meetings with us, helped pick out the items at the design center, was a liaison between us and the builder when there were issues and helped us come up with resolutions to our problems. The building process was very stressful and Dorthe was a tremendous asset.
We had an outstanding successful selling experience with Dorthe . As absentee home owners in the Palisades it was extremely helpful to have Dorthe as a resident in the community representing us. She demonstrated excellent follow up and attention to details in fulfilling all our needs. Dorthe has an excellent understanding of the local market and is extremely resourceful solving issues during the transaction process. We highly recommend Dorthe to anyone buying or selling in the Charlotte market.
Dorthe was very helpful throughout the buying process of our newly constructed home. She was instrumental in finding our lot and skillful during negotiations. Without skipping a beat, she was well prepared for every meeting and represented us well at our final inspection and closing. She followed up with a visit to our home after we settled in, which was simply a wonderful personal touch.
Thank you, Dorthe for helping to bring us home!
We had a fantastic experience buying our home with Dorthe. She was great to work with during the process and we never felt any pressure. This was also our first experience building a home and Dorthe’s expertise was extremely valuable. With so many choices and unknowns, she was able to help guide us through the process.
We’d certainly recommend her to anyone looking to buy (or sell) in the Charlotte area!!
Dorthe was an excellent agent – She always made herself available for every step in the building of our home from the paperwork to the design center to closing! She made it a priority to provide the best customer service whenever possible. It was a pleasure working with her. My husband and I would certainly recommend her as an agent to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home! Thanks, Dorthe!
Ann-Dorthe represented us in a professional and efficient manner. She helped guide us smoothly through the process of selling our home. Any seller or buyer would be lucky to have her as his/her realtor.
Dorthe was wonderful to work with. Selling our home was an emotional event for our family as we hated to leave the Palisades. She was patient and helped guide us through the process. Her knowledge and support were much appreciated. My wife and I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our experience working with Dorthe and her team at Tim Wilkison Signature Realty. Thank You So Much.
Shane & Allison Lunsford
From the moment of first, our first meeting and subsequent listing with Dorthe, Marian and I always felt our interests were being well served. Her personality exudes friendly professionalism. While our listing did not result in a sale, we believed this was in spite of Dorthe’s very attentive efforts in a very difficult market.
I have successfully sold homes in good and bad times, but this was the most professionally handled real estate transaction I have experienced. From the start and to the finish; the knowledge, the attention to detail, the caring, and the professionalism was always there. Ann-Dorthe receives the highest of marks and we recommend her with no reservations.
Dorthe was an amazing Realtor from the time we started to look at lots through the design center and closing process. With her help, we built our dream home and was completed on budget and on time.
We had some specific things we needed to be done the home and was able to accommodate all that we needed. We added a door and doubled the size of the deck. Throughout the process, she was helping in every way with any issue that comes up including getting our fence approved through the HOA on time and in the budget.
She is a true professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. I have recommended her to 3 more Palisades member and can say enough great things about her and the process.
My wife and I had met with one of the local builders, Ryland Homes, and we had spoken with Linda McLendon a couple of times, but it was especially after we met with Ann-Dorthe that we realized that The Palisades would be the ideal place for us to live and play. Ann-Dorthe also arranged for us to set up a special deal with the Country Club, and she and her husband immediately introduced us to a number of their friends and golf buddies.
A week into our new membership, it feels like we already have been members for several months. Our new house is being built close to the 6th golf hole, and we cannot wait to move in in February of 2013.
We strongly recommend that you do your homework regarding researching your realtor, ask for references and testimonials from past clients before you sign any listing agreements or buyers representations agreement. We are happy to meet with you, answer any questions you might have about our testimonials and our process, or even if necessary allow you to speak directly with our past clients in an effort to make you feel 100 percent comfortable when hiring us to facilitate your real estate transaction.
