"Missy is the most knowledgeable realtor I have come across. The great qualities about missy are that she is patient, very flexible, has a thorough understanding of the area, what's developing in a certain area, which areas could potentially cause issues for clients. For E.g. There was a house which we like near I 485 and were thinking about putting an offer on the house. But Missy immediately told us that there might be a new exhibit opening near the house which was great because immediately we knew that the traffic on the road will increase tremendously. She also knows the school boundaries very well for someone who is looking to buy a school in a particular school district. Her support staff is great too. When we put an offer on the house and all inspections were arranged and done by missy's reference in less than a week. Closing was smooth as ever. Missy also has great relations with other realtors and if she is not able to show you a house she will make sure that she sends another realtor for showing. I would hire missy in a heart beat if I have to go through this process again (I sincerely hope not). As much as this whole buying and selling a house is stressful, one thing prospective clients can worry less about is the realtor, if they hire missy. I have two little girls and they absolutely adore missy, my 5 year old was sad when I told her that we will not see missy very often now that we bought the house. She is absolutely great with couples with small kids, very accommodating. I would highly recommend missy to any one who is looking for a realtor in charlotte or surrounding area."
"We were referred to Missy by a friend when we first started house hunting in the Charlotte area last October. She was incredibly helpful by showing us the various towns & subdivisions, and she took us to view many houses to enable us to narrow our search for the exact one that would meet our needs. Once we sold our house in CT we gave her a wish list of the features we wanted. Because Missy knew us so well she put together a list of homes, any of which would have been a good fit. Missy's diligence paid off because the third house we saw on the first day turned out to be "the one". She helped us negotiate a great deal and then kicked into high gear to arrange all the necessary inspections since we had such a compressed time frame. More impressively, she worked closely with each of the home inspectors to identify any work that needed to be completed to make sure the house was at its best. Fortunately the to-do list was small but she made sure we had the repairs done by quality providers. Our closing didn't follow a normal process by any means because the sellers weren't able to complete their portion of the move on time. Missy took the initiative to work with the seller's agent and the realty lawyer to sort out a solution to our benefit, which allowed us to physically move in on schedule. All realtors will tell you that they are your advocate, but Missy embodies that statement. She listens to your needs, helps you find the house and the area that's perfect for your lifestyle and manages the process perfectly. Buying a house can be an emotionally draining process, but Missy made it so much easier at every turn. She is the perfect combination of warmth and professionalism."

"Missy was amazing to work with. After contacting Missy she was very responsive and really listened to what my husband and I were looking for in a home (location, school district, future market value) and more importantly she always had and has our best interest at heart. There is no question that she is one of the best - she made our home buying experience enjoyable and efficient. I would highly recommend Missy to anyone looking in the Charlotte area. We are forever endowed to her for her help in finding our dream home!"

She is the best!!"

"This is the third real estate transaction Missy has helped me with and, as before, she came through with flying colors and I closed on my house without a hitch. No surprises and that's a lot to be said in real estate dealings. Couldn't have gotten a better realtor."

"5 Stars! Missy Banks went out of her way every day for me to see and look at many many condos and homes. She was encouraging, and had great ideas about where to look and worked with other Allen Tate team members to get leads. She is thorough, by the book, and she gets things done in a timely, efficient, and effective manner. Not only that but she also helped me to find loans that were appropriate for me specifically. She has a warm heart, she listens, she is non-judgmental, and she cares. I highly recommend her as an agent and am so grateful she was my agent. Thank you Missy!"

"We chose Missy because of her knowledge and expertise in the Providence High School area. She was truly a pleasure to work with, always very patient and understanding, and she gave us great advice on the purchase of our new home. She is extremely knowledgeable and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in this area."
-- Lori & Michael Danze, 2015
"We had the good fortune of working with Missy this past spring when she assisted us in downsizing. Missy's knowledge of the market helped us find exactly what we were looking for and then she guided us through preparing our home for what turned out to be a very quick sale. She was incredibly professional and responsive, making what could have been a stressful time a very smooth transition. We would highly recommend Missy."
-- Chris & Anne Moffat, 2015
"My wife Irene and I were new to Charlotte and worked closely with Missy over five months to find a home we would both like and within budget as we are retired. Missy was patient and resourceful as we familiarized ourselves with the various locations and home options available in Charlotte. As the market tightened in the Spring of 2015 Missy helped us become pre-qualified buyers so that we would be in a position to move quickly if and when the right property turned up. On a Friday afternoon in late May our ideal home came on the market. With Missy's help we viewed the home within two hours, submitted an offer on that evening and had our offer accepted by 12:30 pm on Saturday. Missy is professional, knowledgeable, responsive and has a friendly disposition which put us at our ease. An "excellent" rating is the lowest appropriate rating for Missy."
-- Peter and Irene Byrne, 2015
"We were so glad that we chose Missy Banks as our realtor. She is very professional and knowledgeable. Our house sold right away due to her suggestions and advice. We would recommend her to anyone. Thanks again, Missy, for all of your help."

"Missy was a fantastic partner in helping us sell our home fast and at the price we were expecting. She also helped us find our new dream home and was extremely patient and helpful throughout the entire process. Missy's attention to the important details many people overlook or never consider gave us the piece of mind that our transactions were completed with the right supporting documents, removing any uncertainty as to whether our closing would complete without complications. Thank you Missy!
-- Paul and Grace, 2015
