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.

Betty made our search an enjoyable experience. As well as being knowledgeable and on top of the process, she listened carefully to what we wanted, brought us to homes likely to meet our needs and was a trusted advisor through the bid, finance and closing process. Her enthusiasm for getting people into the right home is infectious and added immensely to our experience.

I cannot express how much we loved working with Betty! I would recommend her in a heartbeat. She is extremely responsive, smart and savvy. Her knowledge of the area and market is very impressive, and she knew exactly what we were looking for, even after our first meeting together. She isn't afraid to express her opinion and it was very valued by us, but she also reminds you that it's her opinion and that you must make decisions on your own. In addition, she is sweet, caring and funny—traits that make you love her even more.

"I have known Betty for 7 years now since I bought my first house in Chapel Hill. Betty relentlessly worked with me until we found exactly what I was looking for. Seven years later, she is the only realtor I trust to now sell this house for me. Betty is not only highly knowledgeable of the Chapel Hill/Durham area but her quick response time and charming personality are rivaled only by her professionalism and honesty. I have and continue to highly recommend Betty to friends looking to buy/sell a house."


11/19/2016 - Erika P.

"Betty is bubbling with energy and her no-nonsense, straight to the point style worked wonderfully for us. With a baby on the way we only had one month to find our home and Betty could not have been more dedicated. Coming from out of town we really needed someone who new the area and we greatly appreciated her candor in terms of neighborhoods, schools, etc.We loved her so much we've recomended she now find my mom her dream home."


11/19/2016 - Shiney D.

"Betty was phenomenal in helping us find a home. She responded promptly and previewed many homes for us since we were moving into the area from out-of-state. She worked tirelessly for us and was very supportive, patient, understanding, and extremely helpful. She earned our trust immediately. It was a joy and a huge blessing having her as our realtor. We HIGHLY recommend her. You won't be disappointed.'


11/19/2016 - Felicity M.

"Betty is a absolute delight to work with - she is professional, has in depth knowledge of the area and really listens to her clients so every search and showing is worthwhile. She makes the process fun, light and easy. She also provides great guidance through the negotiation and closing process. I highly recommend Betty!"


11/19/2016 - Christy B.

"Betty Thompson with Coldwell Banker Advantage in Chape Hill and her expertise made our home-buying experience as painless as possible. My husband and I started out with very different house wish lists- we even disagreed on location. Betty was able to find a house that delighted us both, in a location we would never have found on our own. She then expertly guided us through the home-buying process. She was the rock that got us through it. I can't imagine buying a house without her!"


11/19/2016 - Layla D.

"Betty was an amazing asset to us in our home search. She was patient and diligent, sticking with us during a three-month search that ultimately led us to the home of our dreams. She truly became a part of our family. We couldn't recommend her enough!"


11/19/2016 - Sharon H.

"Betty was AMAZING! I was looking for a house in a particular zip code area close to my son's school and work. She showed me every house I wanted to see and even some I would have never expected to like. When I found the one I was sure I wanted she didn't let me lose it. She work weekends and evenings around my schedule. And during negations with the seller she was making calls from the beach on a family weekend away. I would highly recommend Betty to anyone that needs a caring and responsive agent. And she is a good negotiator!"


11/19/2016 - Suzan G.

"We enjoyed working with Betty. She gave us a great overview of the area since we were from out of town, and was very energetic. We looked at multiple areas and houses and gradually narrowed it down to one. It was new construction and Betty was a big help nailing down the details. We highly recommend Betty!"


11/19/2016 - Martha K.

"Betty does a good job understanding your needs and an excellent job suggesting properties that meet your requirements. She is very thorough, perceptive and an outstanding realtor."


11/19/2016 - Chris H.

"When we decided to move across the country for work, we decided it was time to buy our first home to have a place to call our own. I was nervous about picking an agent and wasn't sure where to start, but fortunately our bank's moving service put us in touch with Betty's office. Betty was extremely flexible and willing to work around our schedule (we had a one week visit about 6 weeks before we moved to the area and wanted to close on a house). I spoke to her a few times and emailed a bunch before our first meeting. I was very happy that not only was she showing us some nice listings, she was very happy to look into homes I found and sent to her. Once we were in town and looking at homes, Betty was invaluable with helping us weigh pros and cons of different properties and making sure we knew as much about each one as possible. One of the things that I think most highly about Betty is that I never felt like she was keeping information from us and that she was very upfront and honest in our discussions. I never once had reason to believe I couldn't fully trust her to do her best on our behalf, and not just for her commission. After we had an offer accepted on a home, she was able to make some calls and even schedule our home inspection before we left town so we could have time to make other arrangements, if necessary. I was impressed she was able to make that happen. Once mortgage paperwork started, our bank really turned into a disaster and we had some problems with the timeline of our financing, but Betty was always just a phone call or email away to help us through the process and answer our questions. Even when she was busy or in the middle of something else, she was always prompt about getting back to us. Overall, I could not recommend anyone more highly than Betty Thompson if you are looking to buy a house. She is professional and personable, and a person whom I trust fully. I have no doubt that she will be as hard working and generally fantastic for anyone as she was for us. I will certainly use her services again if I need another realtor in the area!"


11/19/2016 - Bethany H.

"Betty Thompson is incredibly responsive, dedicated, real estate agent that made a very stressful process much easier. We sold our home within one day on the market. She always responded within an hour when we had a question. She has a great personality that made the experience even better."


11/19/2016 - Anna T.

"My two favorite things about Betty:1. It's clear that she wants you to get the house you want, not the house that will make her the most money. She never tried to paint a bad fit as something we should consider and I always felt like I could trust her.2. She passionately advocated for us every step of the way. She was very honest and helpful during the negotiation process and any time a kink came up (through no fault of her own, just happens in the house-buying process) she was ALL over it. We could really count on her to look out for us, which was really important especially since we were first time buyers.Betty was also a real pleasure to work with - she is insanely responsive and is quite funny and upbeat."

Betty is outstanding professional! We relocated from Maine to Chapel Hill and had no local knowledge of the area. Betty was very patient with us throughout the home search/buying process. We often visited houses multiple times. When we did submit an offer, she walk us through the process and ensured we understood all the differences from Maine, especially Due Diligence. She has vast knowledge of the Chapel Hill area and was able to advise us on property values, schools, and neighborhoods. I felt she always had our best interest in mind. We are very happy with our home purchases and thankful for Betty's guidance and support.

I sold 2 condos with Betty. First condo was an inexperienced nervous buyer. She handled them carefully and helped them through the process to close quickly. Second condo had a very hostile and belligerent buyer. Betty stayed calm and helped negotiate in the face of considerable manipulation and underhanded approach of the buyer.

Hi,
We have recently moved from North-East. We had started working actively with Betty for last six months (even before moving to Raleigh/Durham area- rental unit and buying a property. We have gone through lost of properties and flipping back and forth on buying property before moving or rent initially and buy. Betty has patiently worked with us over the period and guided through complete process. We have few issues before closing; she has clearly taken lead to guide us and helped us to resolve issues in timely manner.

I will continue to work with Betty for my future needs. I will not have any hesitation to refer Betty to family & friends.

Will you best of luck, Betty.
