Barbara Phillips peers in to the oven at her broccoli casserole bubbling with cheese. The smell of turkey and mashed potatoes fills her kitchen as she rushes from the oven to the stove putting the final touches on the Thanksgiving dinner. The holiday chaos is definitely in the air and Barbara is in pure heaven. "Helping to co-ordinate a meal for an extended family of 50? No problem, " she says with a smile, "If it means getting all of the people I love together so we can talk and catch up, then it's worth it." It's no great surprise that Barbara is such a fan of these annual Thanksgiving gatherings. For her, there's nothing more important than sharing these memorable moments in life with family and friends. "What's really important is connecting with the special people in our lives," she says. "Thanksgiving is more than just a fancy dinner, it's a great way to gather together and celebrate."
Born in Minnesota, Barbara has lived in North Carolina most of her life. A graduate of Cardinal Gibbons High School in Raleigh and East Carolina University in Greenville, she loves calling North Carolina "home". As a former divisional merchandise manager and store manager with Belk, she's always been an individual guiding others and making a difference in their lives. Reaching out to orphans in Africa has become a passion as she helps support these children through the ZOE-Giving Hope Ministry. She continues to reach out locally through her church, local emergency food pantry, and Military Missions in Action.
With a strong connection to her community and a deep drive to make a difference, it's no surprise that Barbara is such a success in her career. As a leading real estate consultant in Wake/Granville Counties and surrounding areas, she reaches out to her clients on a personal level so she can get to know their needs and help them accomplish their real estate dreams. "I get to know my client as a friend so they feel comfortable sharing their goals, desires and concerns with me," she says.

In 2017 I find it more important than ever to make that one on one contact with my clients. After 15 years as a Realtor I can say the above information is still the base of who I am. Through a high professional ethic, hard working commitment and caring attitude toward my clients and team, combined with a wealth of knowledge of the market I became the top listing and selling agent in 2016. I have enjoyed meeting folks from all walks of life and from many countries around the world. As you consider making Wake, Granville and surrounding communities your home let me show you "My Home".

When my wife and I began our journey of finding the home that we were going to raise our children in, we knew that we needed help. We were fortunate to cross paths with Barbara early on in our process. Along the way, Barbara helped us sort through and rank all of the options that someone considers when looking for a home. She really helped us narrow our focus in our search and ultimately helped us get a wonderful home at a tremendous value. She is incredibly kind and is very experienced with our local market. When it came time for negotiating, we knew that we were in great hands with Barbara as our agent.
Our home purchase experience with Barbara occurred almost four years ago. She has continued to stay in touch with us ever since with great information about our local market and upcoming events that are fun for the whole family. She has always been the first person we go to when we have a need for a contractor or need work done to our home. Working with Barbara Phillips was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend her to anyone that is considering buying or selling their home.
We were out of state looking for a home around Raleigh. We did not know the area that well and Barbara took the time to show us homes in many different areas and was able to answer questions which gave us an general background to each of the towns around Raleigh.
She is always pleasant and helpful. Her call backs were either within an hour but no later than end of day. Many times she answered her phone and we did not need a call back. I would very much recommend her to friends and family.
