Barbara is a very nice person. She is so friendly, knowledgeable and easy to work with. Barbara knows the Wilmington area and the market like the back of her hand. She makes you feel comfortable and will find answers to your questions. She will work til your house is sold and you find the house you want in the area you want. She is the best in the area!

Totally dedicated to the clients best interest. She is the barometer by which other Realator’s should be judges. In the eleventh hour our backs were against the wall because of an incompetent attorney and Barbara jumped in, called the attorney, spoke with the builder and immediately corrected the situation. The movers were in our home waiting and costing us money and lost all hope of moving that day.

Barbara Pugh was an excellent realtor...without me ever having to ask, she constantly and pro-actively followed up with prospective buyers and kept me advised via email. She also effectively planned and executed a number of marketing efforts to keep my house in front of potential buyers. A+!

Barbara is a very hard working, honest and dedicated to her clients. She patiently worked with us for over a year to find our home. She was always available to help including some weekends. She is very knowledgeable and well connected which made our closing process very smooth. We already recommend her to our friends and associates. We are now enlisting her help to find us an investment property in Wilmington. We were lucky to have her and we strongly recommend her. Thank you Barb!

I will refer everyone I know that is in the real estate market to Christy Carr!! Beyond professionalism and knowledge, Christy is authentic. I began looking for a home for my family in July 2017 while still living in Chicago. Christy really listened to my "wish list" and my concerns. With all of the many housing options in Wilmington, Christy kept me focused on the main reasons I chose to move to Wilmington. We purchased our new home in October 2017. Along with an awesome house we also have an awesome friend!!

Barbara was the listing broker for a home I recently sold in the Wilmington area. I have bought and sold many homes over the last 10 years and the Pugh team by far exceeded my expectations. If you are moving to the area and need local market knowledge, great customer service and attention to details, Barbara’s team will not disappoint. I highly recommend them for listing or selling any type of residential property in the greater New Hanover/Wilmington area.

Barbara Pugh is the perfect real estate agent to have working for you. She is a true professional who you will be pleased to have working for you to get the job done right. She is fair, honest, and anxious to get your house sold while advising you on just how to do your part also. Sometimes it's difficult to remove personal items, clutter, furniture placement ,but her ideas proved to be right and made the rooms look larger. We also had a major problem and Barbara was there the entire time and saw it through until the house was sold. You want her to represent you for many reasons. I can't imagine how things would have gone without my new friend Barbara Pugh.

Having worked as a real estate legal assistant in Wilmington for eighteen years, I can honestly say that Barbara is the most professional and dedicated agent I have ever known. After my husband passed away last year, I needed an agent to represent me with two sales and one purchase. I had not worked in ten years as I cared for my husband and had lost track of any connections I had in the real estate community. I was drawn to Barbara immediately because of her compassion for my situation and her knowledge of the properties I needed to sell. The two sales were very complicated and had to be completed by the end of the year. Barbara took control and closed both sales in December after months of negotiations. She then helped me find a home to purchase and was with me every step of the way. Her personality and compassion made this difficult time so much easier for me. She still checks on me from time to time. There are no words to express my respect and gratitude for Barbara. I am certain these closings would not have happened without her expertise. I would recommend Barbara to anyone looking for dedicated, hard working agent who will stay on top of things until the job is done.

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.

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
