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.

This is our second time working with Betty, and as with our first experience Betty was an all-star. She is knowledgeable and diligent with her work. Buying a home online could be quite stressful, Betty was with us each step of the way and made us feel quite comfortable with the entire transaction. She was our advocate, and she was also quite honest with value etc. I highly recommend Betty for anyone needing an excellent real estate agent.
Ms. Betty was super super helpful with the purchase of my new home. She walked me through my first home purchase from start to finish. I will recommend her to everyone I know. Thank you Betty Thompson
Betty shared her expertise and professionalism during the process of purchasing our first home! She helped us navigate the whole process and kept great communication.
