I am a Strategic Pricing Specialist, which means I understand that correct pricing is the difference between your home selling or not. Let me assist you in getting a fair and reasonable price in any market. Real Estate is a significant investment. All your decisions are important ones. Looking for your dream home or investment property? I can assist you in the entire process and with the vast resources of Sea Coast Advantage and my knowledge of th local market, I will do my best to exceed your expectations.
My success in business began long before real estate. For 13 years, I owned my own temporary staffing agency in Smithfield, North Carolina, before selling to a national firm and settling here in 1996. I excelled in my own business, because I listened to the needs of my customers; having done so, I sought an agency with similar ethics, a similar “model of success”, and a work environment that valued relationships. I have been a real estate broker for 30 years and I am very pleased to call Sea Coast Advantage home.
I love Southeastern North Carolina and believe it’s important to volunteer to continue its improvement. I am an active member of Wrightsville United Methodist Church. I volunteer and assist at Vacation Bible School. I am the past president of the PTA at Wrightsville Beach Elementary School. I have volunteered in various capacities at the school for the last 7 years, both in the class room and on the PTA board.
When I’m not working and volunteering, I’m spending time with my family.
Thank you for your interest and I look forward to working with you!
I would highly recommend Barbara Pugh because she was always available to give information on a property, to see a property often more than once and to help you make an educated decision on choosing a property. If she didn't have information available she took the time to do research and get back to you asap. I have purchased several properties with Barbara's help and will continue to use her in the future.
I was blessed to have Barbara as my Realtor to both sell my home and purchase a new one. I sat back, read my emails and Barbara did all of the work. She treated me as one would expect to be treated by a professional, yet there was always a comfort zone there with her as she always made you feel like you had known her a lifetime. I will recommend Barbara to everyone I come into contact with that need a Realtor. Her perverseness and diligence allowed me to put a bid on a home I adored and sell mine in the same time frame. I could not have made it through the selling and buying a home process with any sanity without her guidance and enthusiasm. There are no holidays for Barbara. When you sign on with her she is working around the clock for you!
Barbara sold our house and helped us buy a new house and she showed excellent professionalism in both transactions. We first listed our house in a terrible housing market and she worked hard to overcome the conditions. We only had three weeks to find a new home after our old home sold and she helped us in every way to explore our options and we ended up with the perfect solution.
Barbara is in effective shower at Leicester of real estate. She listed our house and in three days had a showing of the house sold. We received the price we asked for in the sale
She follows through that was a year ago even up to and including recently. We highly recommend barbara and her group.
I found Barbara to be a go-getter in both soliciting me as a client (she cold called me and followed up at respectful intervals over the next several months before I decided to actually purchase a home, never becoming a nuisance) and, once employed, put that same effort into finding my home.
I had a number of constraints (e.g., a garage) on the search going into it. As this was my first home purchase, I appreciated Barbara's ability to incorporate new search constraints into her efforts as we looked at various houses and I noted particular things I liked or disliked.
While I had been looking at Zillow before and after she started looking, there was always only a partial overlap in houses we found that my criteria (that is, she always found more than I did). And in fact, she sent me the link for the house I ultimately purchased.
She is professional, courteous, punctual and respectful. She also has a good sense of humor, which is nice given the tedium of looking at a bunch of houses.
Given the above, I highly recommend Barbara for anybody searching for a home.
Barbara is very knowledgable of the area and extremely hard working. She will understand the clients needs and find appropiate housing. Respects the value of the clients time, does the upfront work coordinating showing such that the number of appointments can be maximized. Maintains communications throughout the process and follows up to ensure the client is satisfied.
Barbara Pugh has spent much of her time showing me homes. She listens for my needs and makes a match. Always professional with a genuine friendliness to her clients. I would recommend her for any real estate needs!
I’ve known Barbara Pugh for about 3 years. We have worked closely together while on the WBS PTA Board. You will not find a more dedicated person. Her commitment to finding the best home for your family and her positive outlook will make buying a home a pleasant experience. ~ J. Naylor
