About Barbara Long

These days, the real estate market is challenging and constantly changing. As the industry changes and improves, so should its agents. People are looking for Advisors and Partners, not just an Agent to sell a house. They want and need an Agent that they can trust, and when there are so many options out there, you need to know that as a NextHome Agent we stand out. We are the Real Estate . . .of the FUTURE! We believe that relationships are more important than transactions. “Humans Over Houses”

Hi, I’m Barbara Long, a Realtor with NextHome Paramount, in Charlotte, North Carolina.

I am a true NC native, who grew up at Fort Bragg. I have lived most of my life here in NC but have traveled all over the US only to confirm that home is where the heart is. My heart has led me to call Charlotte, NC home for the past 30+ years.

My father was an entrepreneur in a variety of business ventures and real estate. I grew up watching his entrepreneurial approach, and learned very early about work ethics and responsibility. The lessons I learned during that time led to my eventual career path.

After college, I moved to the Midwest to work as a Managing Director that specializes in startups/trouble shooter for a large company. For five years I relocated from city to city developing my extensive professional background in management, training, and sales. Before becoming a real estate agent, I had moved 28 times. So, I have a unique sensitivity to the process of moving homes.

I have over 20 years’ experience as a real estate professional in a plethora of multifaceted real estate transactions including residential brokerage, property management, relocation, home renovations, home staging …….to name a few.

Previous I owned a home staging company, and loved that I could incorporate home staging into my real estate business. Being a Realtor with a background in home staging allows me to be of greater service to my clients. I can help my clients increase the value in their home by helping them know of the right and necessary changes that are needed to improve the aesthetics of the home. I have a lot of local knowledge of community and connections. Together, we will evaluate your home buying/selling journey and accomplish great things together. My expertise helps ensure a smooth and successful transaction that will surpass your expectations.


How I Work:

My clients are more than just a transaction, and I aim to ensure that feeling throughout the home buying or selling process. NextHome is the Real Estate. . . of the future.  With our NextHome brand, "Humans Over Houses", I, alongside our entire company, am committed to making clients my top priority. I am here to listen, provide professional guidance, ensure the process is as stress-free as possible, and ultimately guide your search to your dream home.

In my approach to Real Estate, I function as an Advisor/Partner. I take the time to make sure I understand my clients’ wants and needs and tailor my services to meet them. I take the time to ensure that my clients are well-informed about the processes of Selling or Buying. I believe in the importance of educating clients to and keep them well informed and so that they are able to make informed and comfortable decisions throughout the transaction. This also allows for clear expectations and execution by all parties of the deal.

Let me earn your trust, your business, and most importantly your friendship. I guarantee you will see the difference quality service makes. I want to exceed your expectations throughout the challenging process of buying or selling your home. I'm committed to helping you find not just a house but a place you'll proudly call home. Whether you're making a move, investing, or exploring real estate options, I'm ready to be your guide, advocate, and partner.



Relationships Are More Important Than Transactions

It is my goal to become your REALTOR® for life and to be the real estate professional you turn to when buying or selling your home. I want to earn your respect and trust so that you will not hesitate to refer me when a friend or family member is in need of a REALTOR®. In fact, the heart of my success lies in the trust and positive referrals from clients like you. Your satisfaction and happiness are my ultimate rewards!


About Me:

When I’m not making homeownership dreams come true for my clients.

I take pride in giving back to our community. I donate and volunteer as much as I can to many organizations, especially those that support our elderly and animal rescue. I am a dedicated pet advocate who has passionately joined the cause, to make a difference in the lives of both people and animals.

I believe volunteering is important, that it helps others who are in need. Put simply, it makes the world a better place and we must all try to make a difference.
