Hi! I'm Barbara Pater

# 10 Realtor in CHAPEL HILL/CARRBORO/CHATHAM 
OVER $13,000,000 SOLD IN 2013

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 attended and 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 Sterling award with Coldwell Banker and am a Quality Certified Agent.

      Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Durham, NC.
      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!  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Chapel Hill, NC.
      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.  MoreLess

      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Mebane, NC.
      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.
