|H. Allen Tate Jr. 1931-2015|
On behalf of the Home Builders Association of Greenville, we would like to extend our sincere sympathy to the family of Allen Tate, founder of the Charlotte-based real estate firm that bears his name Allen Tate Company.
Raised in Gaffney, S.C., Tate graduated from UNC Chapel Hill. Later, in 1957, he opened a one-man real estate and insurance office in uptown Charlotte’s Liberty Building. He grew his business into a major Carolinas real estate company. Today, the company has about 40 offices in its two-state footprint, about 1,400 Realtors and roughly 200 additional employees.
Tate is survived by his wife, Bessie; four children, Allen III and wife, Sha; Elizabeth “Libby” Gordon and husband, Paisley; Lauren Campbell and husband, Malcolm; and Frank Burgess and wife, Heather; and nine grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife, Barbara, in 2006.
Arrangements are pending.
