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 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 Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Mebane, NC.

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!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Chapel Hill, NC.

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!  More Less

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!  More Less
