Barbara has represented me both in the buying and selling process. I found her to be knowledgeable in all aspects of the transactions. She pays attention to detail, acts with integrity, and has a warm and friendly personality. Barbara priced the home I was selling well and was able to navigate through some rather adverse situations with complete professionalism. She went above & beyond a realtor's responsibilities numerous times. Whether buying or selling your property, you can be assured that you are in good hands with Barbara at the helm. I recommend Barbara without reservation.

Barbara Thomas is an exceptional real estate agent who has the perfect combination of professional expertise, knowledge of the region and homes, and the rare gift of sincerely caring about her clients. She originally helped me find and buy my home which I loved and enjoyed for 14 years. Then she helped me sell my home quickly and easily at a great price. On a 5 star scale, she is a 10!


Barbara was invaluable to us on our search for the perfect property in the beautiful N.C. mountains. She tirelessly assisted us on our journey and represented us with integrity, honesty and diligence.


Barbara was the very best realtor we have ever had. She was so very helpful in showing lots of homes until we found the perfect home for us. When we moved out of our other home and listed it with Barbara, we had a contract within three weeks and she sold it. If you need expert help and a very nice and friendly realtor who will get the job done, please call Barbara Thomas a REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL at RE/MAX Realty Group.


Barbara was very helpful during the listing, negotiating, and closing portions of the sale. She was responsive to questions and offered helpful insights and suggestions as guidance for the family.


Barbara was great to work with. Her patience and determination is amazing. If I had not worked with Barbara, I don't think I would have ever sold my house.


Barbara has handled two real estate transactions for me. She is a total professional, and I am very pleased with the results of both transactions. One transaction was the purchase of a new home. The second transaction was the sale of an existing home. Barbara worked diligently on my behalf. She was efficient and completely professional in all aspects. She kept me up-to-date on progress as the transaction proceeded.


I both bought and sold homes with Barbara. Both transactions were professional and smooth. She knows the area and real estate well and is easy and pleasant to work with. Highly recommend!


Anyone looking to buy or sell property I would definitely recommend Barbara Thomas. She is an excellent communicator and negotiator and will always keep you in the loop as to the progression of your real estate needs.


Barbara was a great realtor and really helped us after I moved to the high country following a job offer at ASU. She encouraged us to look at one particular house that we had seen online and rejected but she really knew the area and was experienced enough to know that there was more there than what was presented on the web. Sure enough, she was right and we found the setting perfect. Barbara guided us through a difficult and complicated foreclosure purchase. Her regular phrase during the buying process was, “I’ll do that for you.” Research the surrounding property? Arrange a surveyor? Call a propane provider? “I’ll do that for you,” was always her response. I felt like she was working very hard for us.

Dear Barbara,
Thank you very much for everything you did to sell our house. Your professional knowledge and years of experience made it possible to sell and close very smoothly.

Misa Yamamoto and Eric Holt

Thank you Barbara and David for your help with our three recent real estate transactions: as our seller’s agent, our advisors for securing a suitable, temporary rental home, and as our buyer’s agent. We knew there might be a “light at the end of the tunnel”; Barbara and David helped us find it.

After a year of fruitless FSBO efforts to sell our former house/property, we, heeding the advice of a good friend and witnessing the sale of a nearby property, turned to the Thomas Home Team for help. Within six weeks David’s optimism and energy secured not one, but two offers on our former house/property. Almost simultaneously, Barbara’s friendly demeanor and meticulous follow-up research guided us to select our new home from the many we visited together. Barbara and David also helped us secure an ideal rental house (the right school district and a rental which would allow our doggies) . Two difficult moves were made less stressful through their efforts.

Throughout all three transactions Barbara and David displayed a wealth of professional expertise, always the utmost in courtesy, and a determination to help us find success. Once we had purchased our “new” home, Barbara and David provided numerous business contacts, friends and associates, to facilitate the upgrades our conveniently located home needed to make it just what we were looking for.

Thank you again for guiding us through the three challenging stages of making our dream come true. Also, please give our best regards to Anitra Soto, the best office manager a leading real estate agency might hope to employ.

Adios for now,
David and Lorena

Barbara is an amazing real estate agent to work with. We saw many houses before finally purchasing our home. We went to another house three or four times and were 90% sure about making an offer. Barbara said something like, “Don’t make an offer unless you are 100% sure. You will know when it is the right house”. I am very glad that we did not make the offer on that place because we ended up driving by a location that we love and saw a for sale sign. We called Barbara and begged her to show us the house as soon as possible. She rearranged her schedule to be able to show us the place. We knew that she was short on time that day, but she stayed at the house with us for a long time since she knew how much we liked it. She tried to be the voice of reason regarding justifying the price since she knew that we were in love with the area. Barbara was great with the due diligence period. She even drove two hours to pick up a survey map for us when we had a question about the land. We are exceedingly happy in our new home and we have Barbara to thank for making our dreams come true!

I have known Barbara for many years, but never in a professional way. I was simply stunned at her real estate expertise. She was on top of every step of the process of selling my house. It was a real pleasure to see her as a real estate salesperson. All facets of the selling process were handled fast and explained completely. She anticipated any problems that might arise and handled any potential obstacles. I would highly recommend her in representing the seller and surely the buyer also. My house sold faster than anyone could have expected. She helped me to make the most of showings, and her office staff scheduled showings and informed me of when to expect the potential buyers. Kudos for Barbara Thomas. She is at the top of the heap of real estate reps.

You have done more to help me than any other Realtor I have ever worked with in the High Country. Thank you and your RE/MAX team for helping me to sell my home.

“Barbara Thomas went beyond a real estate agent’s responsibilities. She happily helped us set up appointments for the items needed to speed up our purchase of our home. She was always congenial and supporting of anything we asked. I would recommend Barbara for any real estate needs you might have. She is knowledgeable and experienced in her field.”

“Dearest Barbara,

Thank you SO much for everything you have done for us during the past three months. From the many drives to see houses to wrapping up the details of our home purchase so quickly, we couldn’t have done with you – and we wouldn’t have wanted to. You are a kind, patient and good person and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed this journey with you. Thanks for everything!!”

“Thank you Barbara! We really appreciate your assistance, kindness, and professional approach in selling our home. We received excellent service and communication from you and your staff. We will definitely suggest you to others needing to sell or buy in the high country region. I wish you the very best going forward. Again, thank you for promoting and selling our home during this time of a very challenging real estate market. You’re the best!”

“I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for our family! I had the utmost confidence that you could sell the house, which is why I suggested you to my Dad and sisters. But, most importantly, you and Anitra were so helpful and took the stress out of a very stressful situation. Thank you both for being so understanding and working around my “killer” dog situation…. She’s my baby, I can’t help it :-) You are amazing!!!”

“Just a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate your taking care of everything for me during the sale of my vacation home. I really could not have done any of this without someone as kind and respectful as you were. Thank you so so much. Your taking care of all details, and my not having to be there was wonderful. All of these little things were big to me. I hope the buyers will enjoy their new home. Thanks so much.”

“We really appreciate all that Barbara Thomas and Anitra Soto did to help us get our home sold. It was really necessary to have it sell prior to our son starting college in August, 2012. We placed our cabin on the market in June 2008. Once that contract ran out, we listed our home with another Realtor in the area. After 3 years, we were running out of time. We decided to try RE/MAX Realty in June, 2012. By the beginning of July we were under contract and by August we were closed, just in time for our son to start college. You guys were amazing. Thanks for getting it done!”

“Great team! Thoroughly enjoyed meeting and getting to know the staff, and we were always made to feel right at home. Every visit to the RE/MAX office we found the agents and staff helpful, friendly, professional and always willing to go out of their way to assist us in any way. No hesitation to highly recommend the RE/MAX Realty Group in Boone.

“We couldn’t have done better than Barbara Thomas! Being new to the area, Barbara’s knowledge of Watauga County and the different schools and neighborhoods was very helpful. She made the whole experience low-stress, relaxing and fun. Her honesty and sincerity earned our trust from the beginning, and her hard work and expertise helped us to find a home and close in a little over a month. Great job! She’s at the top of our list, and we would highly recommend her to others looking for real estate in the High Country.”

“Barbara went above and beyond to help us find the right house. As first time buyers, we knew little of the house-finding, house-buying process; at every step, however, from searching and negotiating, to contracting and closing, Barbara was there, patient, encouraging, and knowledgeable. We would recommend her to anyone.”

“(We) want to thank you for your professional and personal service when we bought our cabin in West Jefferson. It is so refreshing to work with someone who displays the qualities one always hopes to find in a business person——-honesty, straight forwardness, friendliness, and a willingness to give the extra effort to make sure everything comes out perfectly.

Know that you will be highly recommended to anyone we know or come in contact with who is planning to buy in the Watauga/Ashe/Avery county area.”

“We used a RE/MAX when we sold my late father’s home. We were pleased with how the company handled their business and we were looking for the same high quality and commitment when buying our 2nd home in the mountains of North Carolina, and we got it! Barbara was very pleasant to work with. She stayed on top of things and was very helpful with any questions or concerns that we had. I never felt she was to busy to speak with us. She did everything to get us in our mountain home in a timely and professional manner. She is a wonderful person. I will miss talking with her. Many thanks for an outstanding job!”

“(We) honestly feel that we would not have had a successful outcome had we not had Barbara Thomas by our side. Barbara is an honest Professional Real Estate Agent that gets positive results. I give her my highest recommendation!”
