Why We're Different

So, What Makes Us Different?

Actually, it starts with our late grandfather, Calvin Bevins. When we were kids, our grandfather instilled in us what it meant to do the right thing, to take care of people. He went from the humblest beginnings to working internationally and on Capitol Hill. Life is about people and relationships, and Calvin was the absolute best. Throughout our lives, we have tried to live up to his standard.

It’s a Tough Standard to Meet

Unfortunately, I get phone calls every day from homeowners who thought they understood things a certain way when they first spoke to a particular company, only to find out later that it wasn’t exactly what they thought. A cash offer turned into a short sale. A short sale turned into a foreclosure. Rent to own turned into rent and then get kicked out. Sometimes that’s not the investor’s fault, but sometimes the investor never had the client’s best interest in mind to begin with. It’s a shame, and it hurts our industry and the reputation of good investors. Calvin Bevins would not approve…

The Good News

The reality is, there are good, ethical real estate investors out there who want to help you. We are tied into a national network of investors who are working hard every day to improve their businesses by improving their communities, not simply improve their incomes by taking advantage of others’ misfortunes. Every business must make a profit, and ours is no exception, but if you work with us, you’ll find that if it’s not a win-win, it’s not a deal.

When we started our business, we knew that we would be meeting people in tough situations. When you ask us a question, we tell you the truth. Sometimes it will be what you want to hear. Sometimes it may not be. But one thing’s for sure, it’s the truth as best we understand it.

We have spent time on the phone and in person with many people who ultimately didn’t do any type of transaction with us. Some people might see that as a waste of time. We don’t. Opening Doors Properties is built on the premise that we will be most successful when we are helping the most people. Whether you’re looking to sell a house, buy a house, rent to own, or just get our best advice, give us a call at (704) 966-9797 or reach out on our contact page.

About Us

At the heart of Opening Doors Properties is an overwhelming desire to just make life better for others. Brother and sister team, Chad and Carie Tate, partnered with their mother, Diana, to build a comprehensive Real Estate solutions team.

Our Team

Chad makes people feel at home. How do I know this? Not because I’m his sister, but because our clients, associates, partners, and peers, tell me this about him every day. And I know when you meet him, you will tell me the very same thing.
-Carie Tate

Carie has it under control. Even when it comes to my end of the business, Carie needs to know how things are going. “What’s going on with this deal? Have you heard back from that nice lady?” Her questions help us all stay on track. I don’t know what we would do without our Walking Blueprint.

  • I just closed on a home that I bought from Opening Doors Properties in Mt. Holly, NC and having bought other homes this was the most pleasant experience ever. They made sure everything in the home was working and up to proper code and it is obvious that they really care about what they do and the people they are dealing with. - Alannah J., Mt. Holly, NC – Home buyer
  • We had a family house that we could not afford to fix up. I called Chad and he came in with a fair offer that worked for our family. He did what he said he was going to do when he said he was going to do it. His company did a beautiful renovation and even invited our family to a private reception when they were done. We are now looking to buy a house from him in the future. - Anthony A., Mt. Holly, NC – Home Seller
  • You are a true professional and you worked hard to go the extra mile to help my family. Chad, my dealing with you has been nothing but total satisfaction and my gratitude cannot be expressed by words, you are a true professional but you make people feel like an old friend. - Reggie C., Charlotte, NC – Home Seller
  • We have worked on many closings and title issues with Chad and his company. We cannot say enough about his professionalism and commitment to his clients. - John Renger, Charlotte, NC – Real Estate Attorney
  • I can not thank your company enough for helping me solve my real estate problems. I was behind on my mortgage and needed someone to close quickly. The company actually made up all of my back payments and continued to pay my mortgage which has helped me re-establish my credit. - Marie M., Mooresville, NC – Home Seller
  • My mother and I recently relocated from Florida to North Carolina. Like most people, we were looking for a great deal on the perfect house in a beautiful community. In addition, because I was making a career move, I needed the transaction to be as seamless as possible. Not only did we get the great deal, but Chad and his team took us all the way through closing step by step. I would highly recommend Chad to anyone looking to buy or sell their home! - Tracey B., Mooresville, NC – Home Buyer
