My name is Barbara Pater and I have lived in Chapel Hill since 1997. My husband and I decided then that we wanted to find the "perfect" place to raise our children. We were living in Southern California, and although it was beautiful, it did not offer what we ultimately wanted for our kids. After screening several cities, we settled on Lake Hogan Farms in Chapel Hill. Fast forward and here we are! This community has offered us everything we could have hoped for...great schools, a safe environment, and a beautiful town rich with culture and opportunity. My daughter graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and my husband works there at the hospital. I have worked in several capacities and all of my experiences have enabled me to be a great communicator and negotiator. While living in California, my family owned and operated a wholesale/retail silk flower/plant and Christmas business for 21 years. That experience in the design field has been tremendously valuable in helping me understand how to prepare a home for a quick sale. Since moving to North Carolina, and before I became a real estate agent, I worked as a flight attendant with Midway Airlines. That helped me hone my negotiating skills...put people on a plane, and you are in charge of making the best of every situation. I love riding horses, have a young Great Dane named Sophie and have been married for 36 years. I am high energy and tireless when it comes to either selling a home or finding the perfect next home. I have enjoyed an active and thriving business. I believe everything I have done until now has led me to my favorite career. I have earned the International President's Circle Award with Coldwell Banker and am a Quality Certified Agent. I look forward to working together!

In a word, Barbara is amazing! She is very knowledgeable, patient, responsive, timely, and brings a wealth and depth of expertise that is unparalleled—in our experiences with realtors over the past 17 years—in every aspect of the home buying experience. She takes the time to know you, your needs and preferences, and tailors her research, recommendations and visits to fit your personal profile. Additionally, to say Barbara is on your team, is an understatement: She is the most talented negotiator we have ever worked with. As we bought our home, she literally saved us a ton of money!! She followed through on every last detail to the very end. Finally, in all this, we now not only have a trusted realtor and partner who we will go to again; we now have a wonderful friend :-)

Barb was an amazing realtor. She really knew her information and was well prepared. She also worked and negotiated hard to get us the home of our dreams. She worked above and beyond what we ever expected from a realtor!

Barb excels in all these key areas. With the internet and various apps, everyone with the time can know quite a bit about local offerings--Barb has the contacts to add to that with her network of past clients and "unlisted" properties. She understands the process for buying and selling properties and works well with other agents, attorneys, and lenders. Responsiveness is in the eyes of the beholder, and Barb never failed to be extraordinarily timely in her addressing issues or advising of where she was on a particular matter--much appreciated. Finally, Barb took the time to know her clients and other parties to better piece together what would most likely work for all...and that worked well for us.

Barb was spectacular to work with she always available with answers to any questions we had. She had great suggestions on how to stage the house for sale and we sold it within a week of listing. I believe that Barb's knowledge of the market and how to price the house had a lot to do with that. If we end up back in the Triangle area there is no other broker we will use to find a place to live.

We hired Barb to sell our house in Lake Hogan Farms earlier this summer. We were late in the year coming to our decision to sell, and we also made firm plans to relocate. So we accepted a certain (high) risk level. While interviewing realtors, we observed that Barb asked the right questions to fully understand our personal situation and plan; whereas others focused more on their own agenda and abilities. She seemed to bring more of a personal commitment to the process than what's written in a contract, and I'm confident that, in the end, it's what made the difference and sold our house quickly.
Prior to listing, Barb helped extensively with contractor referrals, property beautification suggestions, and knowledgeable selling support in general. As soon as we went live, she scheduled open houses. While buyers activity slowed down as the start of school approached, and other neighborhood listings sat empty, Barb worked diligently to bring in potential buyers through open houses, following up on prospects and engaging other agents.
I am sure that Barb's selling activities, combined with good preparation and advice, is what sold our house in three weeks...in a luke-warm market, with lots of competition, late in the selling season. Having purchased and sold several properties over the years, we can confidently recommend Barb as a caring, competent and energetic agent!

Barbara is fantastic to work with!

She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. She is very knowledgeable about the real-estate market in our area and had a lot of good insight to share. Any time we had a question or an issue came up, she was immediately available to help.

We found our dream home but it received multiple offers. Barbara helped us immensely, making recommendations and negotiating on our behalf in our best interest. In the end, both us and the buyers closed very satisfied with the outcome.

Barbara sold our townhouse in Carborro. She knew what needed to be done, she had a lot of recommendations on getting the house ready to put on the market, and worked to get them done. Once on the market the house sold quickly. She had a list of contractors to get the various work done both before and after the inspection that were very helpful and professional. It was a low-stress experience. I would highly recommend Barbara to anybody in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area.

When deciding to move to Chapel Hill from New York, Barbara was an indispensable resource--kind, helpful, friendly, funny, indefatigable, informative, knowledgeable, forthright--in the house-hunting process. She was beside us from the get-go, showing us the area, walking us through houses, offering wise counsel and perspective, bidding, negotiating add-ons, meeting us at the lawyer's table to sign the closing papers. As stressful as buying a house can be, I was more than happy to have Barbara along for the ride.

Mrs Pater is an experienced realtor. She knows the local area very well, especially Lake Hogan Farms. She is professional and provided efficient service every step during sale of my home. With her help, we sold our house in a very short time. She has great personality, and is friendly, honest, and helpful.


12/30/2016 - Rose Hunter

We purchased our home with Barb and was the best realtor we have ever worked with.
She is friendly fun and knowledgeable. Being new to the Triangle she helped us decide which area would be best for our family's needs.
We are in the process of moving again and Barb will be selling our current home and finding us a new one.


12/30/2016 - Suzi Fisher

I moved my mother here from Las Vegas and Barb was amazing. So much so that we bought the house unseen. She had sent my mother everything from photos she took to all information regarding the development, builder, etc. She negotiated a price that was fantastic and made the process very easy. Barb is extremely personable, professional and knows this area well. I would highly recommend her.


12/30/2016 - Whitney Goodman

I had a great experience working with Barbara. She was professional and caring, and helped me to negotiate once I had decided on the house I wanted. She also was responsive to my many questions about the process! I would highly recommend working with her.


12/30/2016 - Jack Black

Barb Pater is a seasoned real estate agent and is the Property Queen of Lake Hogan Farms. She will tell you like it is if you want to get your home sold quickly. Mine sold in less than 10 days with multiple offers. She's a kind woman as well and will keep you laughing as she has a wonderful sense of humor. She truly enjoys her job and the people she meets. I would highly recommend her.

Hi! I''''''''m Barbara Pater
# 10 Realtor in CHAPEL HILL/CARRBORO/CHATHAM
International President's Circle Award Winner 2013,2014,2015

I have lived in Chapel Hill since 1997, when my husband and I decided that we wanted to find the "perfect" place to raise our children, then 6 and 10. We were living in Southern California, and although it WAS beautiful, it did not offer what we ultimately wanted for our kids.. After screening several cities, we settled on Lake Hogan Farms in Chapel Hill. This community has offered us everything we could have hoped for...great schools, a safe environment, and a beautiful town rich with culture and opportunity. My daughter graduated from the University of NC at Chapel Hill, and my husband works there at the hospital.

I have worked in several capacities, and all of my experiences I believe have enabled me to be a great communicator and negotiator. While living in California, my family owned and operated a wholesale/retail silk flower/plant and Christmas business for 21 years. I was project manager on many installations from casinos in Las Vegas, Seaworld in San Diego, to decorating Jenny Craig''''''''s house for Christmas. That experience in the design field has been tremendously valuable in helping me understand how to prepare a home for a quick sale.

Since moving to North Carolina, and before I became a real estate agent, I worked as a flight attendant with Midway Airlines. That helped me hone my negotiating skills...put people on a plane, and you are in charge of making the best of every situation. What a fantastic job! RTP''''''''s premier regional airline shutdown after 9/11 and I took advantage of a few years off to raise my kids.

I love riding horses, have a young Great Dane named Sophie and have been married for 33 years. I value my relationships and add my clients to my friend list. I am high energy and tireless when it comes to either selling a home or finding the perfect next home. I look forward to working together!

I have had my real estate license for 9 years and have enjoyed an active, thriving business. I believe everything I have done until now has led me to my favorite career.. I have earned The International President's Circle Coldwell Banker and am a Quality Certified Agent. I am also a Relocation Certified Specialist.

" ...using her professionalism and persistence, secured a buyer during a very stagnant sales time..."

"...I could not have asked for a more professional or more caring real estate agent during a time of very high stress for me."

My wife and I had lived in Burlington, NC for the past year and are expecting our first child. We were looking for a home in a family-friendly area to raise our little girl. Not familiar with the Chapel Hill area, we discovered Barbara on Zillow. Having lived and raised her family here, she was intimately familiar with all of the neighborhoods and attractions and showed us a dozen homes that almost fit the bill. We never felt any pressure to "settle". Then she found us our dream house. She held our hand and helped us work through our insecurities and stress throughout the whole process of purchasing our house. Having dealt with other realtors before finding Barbara I believe that we couldn't have gotten through this without her. We would definitely recommend Barbara to friends and family. Less

Barbara is an excellent realtor. We initially contacted her back when my family was considering a move. I was very pleased with the time she took to answer our questions when we were very clear that we could not act for a while. This immediately showed us that she was willing to put in the time to make a good business relationship. I also quickly found that she was extremely knowledgeable about the area we were interested in.

She helped us buy a new house which was a big upgrade for my family and I felt that her input really helped us make the right decision. Barbara was quick to suggest a negotiation strategy and also strongly stuck up for our interests during repair disputes.

After the move, she helped to quickly get our old house on the market. She politely insisted that “staging” our empty house would really help present it in the proper way and after some convincing we agreed. I am so glad we did because the house sold in less than a week! I am confident that her experience and suggestion helped us sell the property. Her experience also showed throughout the selling process and was always accessible for questions and was selfless with her time in support of our sale. It is also worthwhile to note that she insists on paying her firm's $250 sales fee out of her commission.

Highly recommended as our experience showed that Barbara will consistently go the extra mile for her customers.

Although we were first-time home buyers, we felt completely comfortable working with Barb. She treated us like her own kids and made sure that we found a place that would best work for us. I really appreciated that she never pressured us to purchase and she was always very patient with us and our many questions. I have already recommended her to my friends, and they have already found the perfect house with her!


12/30/2016 - Ivy Arp

Words cannot do justice to the positivity of our experience with Barb as our realtor; any friend or family member who is considering buying or selling a house will get a recommendation from us to go with Barb. Since we didn't know any realtors in the area, we found Barb on the internet, and was she ever a stellar find! She responded immediately to every call, text or email, and she never made us feel us as though we were asking a dumb question (and I think sometimes we were) or contacting her too much. In fact, she encouraged us to contact her even more, and was always willing to meet up quickly to show any house we were interested in. When we met Barb, my husband and I left the primary showing with absolute certainty that Barb was the realtor for us.
Extremely knowledgeable and very easy to communicate with, Barb brought confidence and reassurance to every aspect of the transaction. She went above and beyond in many ways, and was present for every aspect of the process, including all of the inspections. She knows a great deal about real estate and about the area, and has many professional contacts that help ease the process all around. She isn't trying to get her clients into just any old house to close a sale; Barb is passionate about what she does and seems to delight in matching her buyers to their perfect house. She turned a very shrewd eye to properties to point out features both positive and not so much so to make sure that we were making informed decisions. We never felt pressured by any interaction with Barb; she is easy going with her clients, but direct and firm when negotiating on their behalf.
While friendliness and an outgoing, upbeat personality are not necessary aspects of a real estate transaction, it never hurt to have someone there who has a great sense of humor and is a delight to work with. What can I say...Barb is great and we are grateful to have had her on our side. Thanks, Barb; we absolutely love our new home!


12/30/2016 - Marelle Cacciabaudo

I am currently working with Barbara, looking at houses for a summer purchase. She has great advice for every house we go into, and points out things we would not think to consider (or not consider). I look forward to continuing my work with Barbara.

I would highly recommend her, I was purchasing a condo for my son to live in while at college the whole transaction was smooth and trouble free even though I live out of state.


12/30/2016 - Jonathan James

Barbara helped us with the sale of our farm recently in Chapel Hill and we were impressed with her ability to get solid traffic and consistent showings with targeted potential buyers. As our property was newer construction in a rural area, Barbara was very creative in drawing attention to our unique home. She was also a very good negotiator and provided good counsel throughout the process.


12/30/2016 - Miles Palmer

Barbara helped us prepare our house so that it was so beautiful it sold in two days! Starting with preparing the house, continuing through due diligence, and closing, she was extremely professional and helpful throughout. My wife and I recommend her highly.


12/30/2016 - Ed Frigo

Barbara is a very knowledgeable, high energy real estate agent with integrity. She is there to assist in any way that she can throughout the entire listing and sales process. She responds to emails, texts and phone calls quickly and continually monitors the selling process. She is very personable and easy to work with. I highly recommend Barbara Pater as your realtor.


12/30/2016 - Sara Price

Barbara is a wonderful realtor! She knows the industry and helped us buy our dream home. She really understood what we wanted out of a house and made sure to look out for our best interests. It was so nice to have her there for us throughout the entire experience. We were in good hands!


12/30/2016 - Adrienne Jouve

We have used Barbara as we explore the Chapel Hill area for relocation and she has been unbelievably outgoing in helping us understand the area, the neighborhoods, and give us an idea of the homes that could match our needs/ wants. I have never worked with such a hard working and friendly realtor. She earns every 5 star rating out there


12/30/2016 - Chris McGee

She showed us a house in her neck of the woods and we were so impressed that we got her to show us one an hour away. She was always reachable when needed and was persistent in working with a completely unmotivated seller. We closed the deal right on time and got a great price!


12/30/2016 - Wendy Diehl

We moved here from out of state and were not familiar with the area. We had a general idea of where we wanted to live but depended heavily on our realtor to help us understand the market and the local nuisances. From the beginning, Barbara dug in and previewed some houses for us. She really listened to our needs and gave us candid, detailed feedback of the pros and cons of each area. She took the time to show us the area and local attractions, not just the houses. Her communication was exceptional and always very timely. During the negotiation process she helped us overcome some unexpected challenges and professionally advised us throughout the process. With her local contacts and experience, she got us an outstanding inspector and was on site for the entire inspection. She was helpful and professional throughout every stage of the process and I cannot recommend her enough. I am a professional and have very high expectations and this recommendation does not come lightly.


12/30/2016 - Shanna Resendez

Barbara was an absolutely amazing real estate agent and I would highly recommend her to any potential home buyers. During the search process, Barbara was always ready to meet us at any location to view a home that we were interested in and also did a great job finding inventory that met the type of home we were looking for. When viewing the homes, she gave us her honest opinion so that we never felt like she was trying to get us to purchase a home that wouldn't be right for us. We knew that we could trust Barbara immediately. When we found a home that we fell in love, Barbara did an amazing job coordinating the agreement with the sellers to ensure that we got our dream home. It was especially helpful that she had relations with the builders preferred lenders and was able to coordinate with them directly to speed up the process. In general, Barbara has many connections that were extremely helpful throughout the home buying process. During escrow and closing, Barbara also coordinated all the meetings for us and set up inspections with vendors that she had previously worked with. This was really helpful for us because we were first time home buyers and there were so many things that Barbara did for us that we wouldn't have known about. She even helped us with things we would need after the purchase of our home such as blinds, which is just another example of how Barbara truly cares about her clients. Barbara is the best real estate agent you could ask for and after working with Barbara I would never even think about going with another agent. I would use her for all my future home purchases and recommend her to all potential home buyers.

In fact, she encouraged us to contact her even more, and was always willing to meet up quickly to show any house we were interested in. When we met Barb, my husband and I left the primary showing with absolute certainty that Barb was the realtor for us.
Extremely knowledgeable and very easy to communicate with, Barb brought confidence and reassurance to every aspect of the transaction. She went above and beyond in many ways, and was present for every aspect of the process, including all of the inspections. She knows a great deal about real estate and about the area, and has many professional contacts that help ease the process all around. She isn't trying to get her clients into just any old house to close a sale; Barb is passionate about what she does and seems to delight in matching her buyers to their perfect house. She turned a very shrewd eye to properties to point out features both positive and not so much so to make sure that we were making informed decisions. We never felt pressured by any interaction with Barb; she is easy going with her clients, but direct and firm when negotiating on their behalf.
While friendliness and an outgoing, upbeat personality are not necessary aspects of a real estate transaction, it never hurt to have someone there who has a great sense of humor and is a delight to work with. What can I say...Barb is great and we are grateful to have had her on our side. Thanks, Barb; we absolutely love our new home!

We found Barbara by accident and had been very pleased with the whole house buying process thanks to her assistance. Since we are first time home buyer, Barbara has been very patient and informative during the house searching and closing stages. She has also demonstrated excellent negotiation skills. I would definately recommend her!

Although we were first-time home buyers, we felt completely comfortable working with Barb. She treated us like her own kids and made sure that we found a place that would best work for us. I really appreciated that she never pressured us to purchase and she was always very patient with us and our many questions. I have already recommended her to my friends, and they have already found the perfect house with her!

My wife and I had lived in Burlington, NC for the past year and are expecting our first child. We were looking for a home in a family-friendly area to raise our little girl. Not familiar with the Chapel Hill area, we discovered Barbara on Zillow. Having lived and raised her family here, she was intimately familiar with all of the neighborhoods and attractions and showed us a dozen homes that almost fit the bill. We never felt any pressure to "settle". Then she found us our dream house. She held our hand and helped us work through our insecurities and stress throughout the whole process of purchasing our house. Having dealt with other realtors before finding Barbara I believe that we couldn't have gotten through this without her. We would definitely recommend Barbara to friends and family.

Barbara is an excellent realtor. We initially contacted her back when my family was considering a move. I was very pleased with the time she took to answer our questions when we were very clear that we could not act for a while. This immediately showed us that she was willing to put in the time to make a good business relationship. I also quickly found that she was extremely knowledgeable about the area we were interested in.

She helped us buy a new house which was a big upgrade for my family and I felt that her input really helped us make the right decision. Barbara was quick to suggest a negotiation strategy and also strongly stuck up for our interests during repair disputes.

After the move, she helped to quickly get our old house on the market. She politely insisted that \u201Cstaging\u201D our empty house would really help present it in the proper way and after some convincing we agreed. I am so glad we did because the house sold in less than a week! I am confident that her experience and suggestion helped us sell the property. Her experience also showed throughout the selling process and was always accessible for questions and was selfless with her time in support of our sale. It is also worthwhile to note that she insists on paying her firm's $250 sales fee out of her commission.

Highly recommended as our experience showed that Barbara will consistently go the extra mile for her customers.

Barb Pater is a seasoned real estate agent and is the Property Queen of Lake Hogan Farms. She will tell you like it is if you want to get your home sold quickly. Mine sold in less than 10 days with multiple offers. She's a kind woman as well and will keep you laughing as she has a wonderful sense of humor. She truly enjoys her job and the people she meets. I would highly recommend her.

I moved my mother here from Las Vegas and Barb was amazing. So much so that we bought the house unseen. She had sent my mother everything from photos she took to all information regarding the development, builder, etc. She negotiated a price that was fantastic and made the process very easy. Barb is extremely personable, professional and knows this area well. I would highly recommend her.

She is friendly fun and knowledgeable. Being new to the Triangle she helped us decide which area would be best for our family's needs.
We are in the process of moving again and Barb will be selling our current home and finding us a new one.

- Barb has extensive experience in the Triangle area and lots of knowledge to draw on regarding area neighborhoods, schools, and resources. She put in untold hours helping us see properties multiple times, putting together comps and neighborhood price analyses, and making sure we got the home we really wanted. In the sale of our home, she put together a great-looking listing and appealing marketing materials. We sold our place in about three weeks. On a personal level, we appreciated her honest feedback and personable demeanor. Highly recommend.

I would not even think of hiring someone other than Barbara Pater as my realtor! She has assisted me and others in my family with FOUR different home purchases, and each time has made the transition go smoothly. Barb truly cares about her clients and works hard for them. She is always available when you need her and keeps you updated on what's happening, as well as having so much patience when explaining the process and particulars. There's no one like Barbara Pater when you need to sell your home or buy another one!

Our house went on the market with Barb in February of this year at an asking price of $1,4750,000.

Through it all, Barb has been an amazing help to us and has been both our seller and buyer agent.

We have bought and sold no less than 10 properties all over the United States in the last 25 years. I can honestly say that Barb is the best real estate agent we've ever had from both a buyer's and seller's perspective.

Any agent can list a home in the MLS and set up an open house, but Barb has done so much more. She has flat out made things happen. I have never had such a pro-active agent who is so much of an advocate for us and who clearly understands the sense of urgency that people feel when they're going through this process. In my mind, that's what really separates Barb from other agents.

Barb has the knowledge and experience to do all the right things to market a home (and, of course to find one for a buyer), and she brings her own little tricks and tactics which are very effective (in fact, one of them really was the key that sold our house), so, you know you're getting the best chance to sell or buy. Not all agents can do this, of course, but others can. However, it's the intangible advocacy where Barb pulls ahead of the pack. You really feel that she is in the trenches fighting for you. She pushes things through and pushes people and deals along and always works hard to get you the best of deals. I always felt that we had someone who understood how big of a deal this way, and was going to do everything they could to make what we want..happen.

Before dealing with Barb, I was pretty jaded about real estate agents and really felt that (after a certain level of competence) there wasn't much that made one different from another. Now I know differently.

I couldn't be any happier of a client and fully endorse Barb's services as a real estate agent.

Barb made selling and buying a home in just a few short months as stress free as possible. Knowing we needed to sell our home quickly, she was aggressive in getting it staged, professionally photographed, and listed in just over a week. Barb was great about keeping us on task and ensuring we adhered to dates & deadlines. Tapping into her network of realtor colleagues, the house was shown frequently and eventually sold in just over a month from the day it was listed. Barb's expertise and knowledge of the local market served us well. We can't thank Barb enough for helping us, busy professionals with active kids, sell a home with little effort on our part.

I have listed my house with Barbara Pater and she is exponentially better than any Realtor I've ever dealt with in my life. She's very responsive and responsible, knows what she's doing and comes through in the clutch. I had an electrician replace my electrical box. In the process one of the workers removed and lost three $350 pendant lights. She went and found the owner at Lowes, had him go to University Lights and found some $750 pendant lights on sale for $350. He bought them, installed them in and didn't try to charge me a dime. Recently, I decided to replace my roof and she came up with a roofer who was using good looking Architectural shingles with a 30 year warranty and charged me $1900 less than the quote I got elsewhere. My house hasn't sold yet, but I have faith in her and I know that she's a top notch professional!

I recently worked with Barbara over a 6 month period. During that time she kept me apprised of homes she thought I would be interested in without being too pushy. She listened to my requests and would pick appropriate properties for me to view. She never tried to push me into a higher price bracket. Once I found my house, she worked diligently to work through the MULTIPLE roadblocks I encountered all the way through closing. After closing she was a great resource in helping me to find electrician, painter, contractors, ect. I would HIGHLY recommend her without reservation.

I had little time to make a big decision about an international move. Barb communicated with me by email and phone, was super accessible, and very knowledgeable about the area. I was really impressed with Barb's ability to understand what I was looking for in a home; she didn't try to convince me into a house I wouldn't like. She was extremely easy to work with, set up loads of viewings for me, and helped me suss out issues as I weeded out options. AND she did it all with a super positive attitude. I really appreciated her professionalism, and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking real estate in this area!

We feel very fortunate to have connected with her and feel that good fortune worked greatly in our favor!

In September, 2011 I wanted to sell my house in Chapel Hill, NC and move to Hillsborough. As you may know, the market wasn't exactly strong. Barb did an excellent job marketing my house - the key here was the virtual tour she produce. It was amazing, excellent quality and really showcased my house. On the buy side, Barb worked tirelessly to find me the perfect new house, well within my price range, square footage, age, location, etc.

I would highly recommend using Barb as your next realtor.

We are so thankful that we chose Barb as our real estate agent! As first time sellers, we were naive as to what it takes to get a house on the market. Barb was a lifesaver! She guided us through every step of the process. She brought a "stager" in to tell us what we'd need to do to get the house looking presentable to buyers. When we needed painting and carpeting done, she referred people to us and oversaw their work and kept in touch with them and us. She was very accessible, and sent us frequent emails and reminders to keep us on track. Our house sold before we were even officially on the market. It was a pleasure to work with Barb, and when we need to sell/buy a house again we are certainly going to be calling her! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.

I could not be happier and would highly recommend her to others (and have!). She is knowledgeable, efficient, understanding, and very professional. Barbara makes the home buying and selling process smooth and almost easy! I have absolutely no complaints and would use her services again.

I moved from New England to North Carolina with very little understanding about the local housing market and the region in general. Barbara Pater was extremely knowledgeable and helpful to me in both these areas. I also had some unusual and specific housing/property needs, which she researched thoroughly for me.

I found Barbara to be attentive to all my questions, requirements and desires. She was available when I needed her, considerate of my schedules, and an informed and professional in all her dealings with me.

I recommend her highly to anyone looking for a real-estate agent in this area. She earned a 5 star rating in every category.

We have bought and sold many homes throughout the years, in both California and North Carolina. Barbara helped us sell our house in Chapel Hill and buy our home in Hillsborough. She did way above and beyond what most agents would do when selling our home. It was right when the economy was taking a dive. She had brokers luncheons, open houses and did beautiful videos and flyers. She never gave up, and when it came time to negotiate she did a fantastic job. The neighborhood that we currently live in we didn't even know about until Barbara told us about it, and we had lived near it for a few years! She is very knowledgeable about the area and has an honest grasp about what the market is doing and how to get the job done. I would use her again for any future purchases and would and have recommend her to anyone.

My husband and I have moved many times over the last 25 years and so I consider myself quite experienced in moving. When I am looking for a house I expect to see everything on the market in the area in my price range. Barbara Pater met my every expectation and more. She showed great patience as she showed me property after property until we found my dream house. Her skill and knowledge of real estate is superior. She was also my listing agent and in a tough market she brought me multiple offers and worked very hard to make the whole transaction smooth.
If I ever am in need of a real estate agent again, Barbara would be the only person I would use and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing real estate services..
