I have been fortunate to live in many parts of this country having been raised in the Pacific Northwest near Seattle. My college years were spent in Fairbanks, Alaska and Albuquerque, NM followed by several years in Colorado and Florida. When our daughter Christen arrived, my husband and I focused on determining where would be the best place to raise our family. We weren't brought here for work or even family in the area but instead based on the incredible public school system and outstanding medical care, we chose the Triangle, where we have lived for nearly twenty years.
During this time, we have experienced some of the best of what Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill has to offer. Both of our children attended Chapel Hill schools and graduated from East Chapel Hill High School. Daughter Christen is the co-owner of Itinerant Literate which is taking a love of reading into the community in Charlseton and son Max is in his second year at The Citadel.
I personally benefited greatly from the excellent treatment at both Duke and UNC after I was diagnosed with cancer in 2003 and was treated successfully. I am now privileged to enjoy excellent health and am very grateful for the skillful care that I received.
I feel that I have been given a unique perspective and special appreciation for this place that I call home.
I began my real estate career in 2002 after having previously worked in sales but was now looking for a new career. I’ve long been fascinated with particularly older homes, and to me, that means homes built in the 20s, 30s and 40s specifically. That said, I work with buyers assisting them in the search and purchase of homes of all decades throughout Chapel Hill and Durham as well as all the communities in Orange, Chatham and Durham counties. I love working hard to make sure my clients get the best possible deal on the home of their dreams.
I try to make what can be a complicated and stressful process a little less stressful and overall an enjoyable process. Give me a call or send an email or text when I can be of assistance to you.
As a native of North Carolina, I know there is truly no better place to call home. I was fortunate enough to spend my childhood growing up on my family’s tobacco farm, where I learned at a young age the value of hard work, loyalty, and dedication not only to my profession, but also to the people in my life. While my fondest memories in life will always be working alongside my family, I knew at a young age that I was destined for a career in real estate. While obtaining my business degree at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, I became a real estate broker at the age of twenty and never looked back. I chose the Triangle area to pursue my career because of all it has to offer and I look forward to the opportunity to assist you, your family, and your friends. Founded in 1906, Coldwell Banker is known as one of the most premier real estate companies in the world, and when it comes to making the the most important decisions in your life, align yourself with the best. Give me a call today and let me be your resource.
I relocated from Massachusetts to Carrboro ten years ago. With the a young family in tow and armed with a map and a cell phone, I began my epic journey. Faced with many daunting questions like: "how much do we want to spend on a home", "what school system is best for our children", and "where is the best commute", I enlisted the help of a local realtor who helped me to craft my needs and wishes into a rewarding experience. My family is now comfortably settled into a cozy home, is learning in a bilingual program in an excellent school system, and has a reasonable commute from a town that we love.
My family has taken advantage of the beautiful landscape in our state from the mountains in the west to the beaches in the east, and has immersed ourselves in the local flavor of the Triangle. I have seen how the services offered in this part of the state have grown over the last decade and I know so much about the neighborhoods that I now consider myself to be a local. I would be excited to share my experience and expertise with you! Buying and selling homes are exciting and challenging experiences, so let me be your guide.
Me mude de Massachusetts a Carrboro hace diez anos. Ante muchas preguntas desalentadoras como: "cuanto queremos gastar en un hogar" y "que sistema escolar es mejor para nuestros hijos" y "cual es el mejor viaje cotidiano", solicite la ayuda de un agente de Bienes Raices local que me ayudo con mis necesidades y deseos, fue una experiencia gratificante. Mi familia ahora esta comodamente instalada en un hogar acogedor, aprendiendo en un programa bilingue en un excelente sistema escolar y con un viaje razonable al trabajo del pueblo que amamos. Mi familia ha aprovechado el hermoso paisaje de nuestro estado, y se ha sumergido en el sabor local del triangulo. He visto como los servicios ofrecidos en esta parte del estado han crecido en la ultima decada y se tanto sobre los vecindarios que ahora me considero una nativa. Me encantaria compartir mi experiencia y pericia con usted! Comprar y vender casas son experiencias emocionantes y desafiantes, asi que dejame ser tu guia.
See what their clients have to say about working with them:
Our experience with Betty has been outstanding. Her knowledge of the area is very impressive. She understood and respected our needs and made great suggestions for homes to view based on what we were looking for. Since we were new to the area, Betty also advised us on property values, schools, and neighborhoods. She is extremely responsive, smart and savvy. In addition, she is very sweet and caring. I will definitely recommend Betty
Betty is just wonderful. She helps you prepare the house for sale and keep you in the loop constantly. She works hard to advertise your property to perspective buyers looking for the property you are selling. She walks you through each step of the process and reassures you as well as explaining exactly what is happening.
She is warm, caring and a great sales person. The best decision we made was using Betty C Thompson. She is a dinamo. She helps ease any issue that concerns you. She is a genuine person and knows someone to fix or help you throughout the process.
I give her the highest rating.
We feel extremely blessed to of been paired with Derek by our relocation company. Derrick took the time to understand our situation and wants and diligently helped us find our new home.
If you are looking for a realtor who is professional, detail-oriented, organized, and thorough, you cannot do better than Derrick Lasley. He does business transparently and treats people the way he wants to be treated. Mr Lasley helped us get top dollar for our old home and the best deal for our new home. He was there with us every step of both the sales process and the purchase process and explained everything in detail. He never missed a beat. We would highly recommend him without hesitation to anyone.
