Visit Barbara's websiteMy 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!
See what Barbara's Clients have to say about working with her:
Barbara is truly wonderful! Her eye for detail is spot on and she knows the area so well, it makes searching for the perfect home so much easier! She is so personable it is easy to think you are working with someone you’ve known all your life.
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!
Barbara understood what I was looking for and was persistent to find it. She would steer me away from options that she did not feel would suite me and was prompt, professional, and wise when we found what we were looking for.
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.
