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.
"...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."
