Heather Harrell

Buyer Specialist

License Number: 276232

Heather first got the real estate bug when she was just 9 years old and watched her parents go through the process of buying their second home. She watched the realtor and thought it was "the coolest job ever." But she went on to study psychology in college and work in sales and customer service. It was only after the recession and some bad career advice made her rethink her choices that she started thinking about real estate again. Shortly after, she saw a book on real estate licensing in a bookstore and then received that very same book in the mail by a family friend. "Talk about a sign!" she said. "I signed up for pre-licensing classes immediately, and the rest is history!" Heather says that being a real estate agent is one of the most rewarding jobs out there. "Helping people achieve their dreams and getting paid for it?! What's the catch?" she said. "I get to share in my clients' excitement with each 'win' along the way. I've always heard that I should choose a job I love and can be passionate about and I'll never have to 'work' a day in my life, and I've found that it's absolutely true." Heather strives to be an optimistic and positive person not just to provide her clients with a better experience while they are searching for their dream home, but also so she can be a better person to those she loves, including her husband, her son Jackson, her parents, her sister and her brother. When she's not helping clients, Heather can be found at home with her family relaxing on their deck. They also enjoy taking overnight camping trips to Carolina Beach, the Blue Ridge Parkway, or just a day trip to one of the many lakes around the Raleigh area, where they kayak or paddle board with their dog Max.

Jonathan Hampton

Marketing Specialist


A TV show got Jonathan Hampton and his wife thinking about real estate. They were watching the popular show "House Hunter," and Jonathan said that he "convinced my wife that she would make a great real estate agent, and if successful as a solo agent, we could build a business together. She blew away my expectations, and here we are today." Jonathan started his professional career as a computer scientist with IBM, but that random thought inspired by the TV show helped him find a new calling in a career that allows him to use his creative impulses, as well. Now a marketing specialist with Patty Sells NC, Jonathan says that he loves being able to create unique marketing pieces that grab attention and then creating gorgeous pictures that capture the magic of the real estate transaction. Jonathan prioritizes technology-based solutions, and he makes it a focus to find the right tools and to implement them properly for success. That love of technology extends to his personal life, where he spends a lot of time on YouTube learning something new. "I really think there should be a YouTube university," he said. He also enjoys working out at the gym during his free time.

Patricia Hampton

Owner - Listing Specialist


Patty Gillespie was finishing a post-doctoral fellowship at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency when her husband convinced her to take a night class in real estate. She was working in risk assessment after getting her PhD from New York University and her bachelor of science from Johnson C. Smith University, where she was the valedictorian. "I absolutely loved it," she said of her night class. "I have been on a journey ever since with my husband (who is also licensed) to build a business that provides unmatched customer service by way of effective communication and expert counsel to every single client." Patty says that her favorite part of the job is when the transaction is complete and "the client shares a testimony of complete gratitude. It is confirmation that the team has collectively succeeded in helping the client fulfill their real estate goal." Patty considers herself a compassionate person, and that shows in her work. She takes the time to listen to clients to help them find the perfect real estate opportunity to meet their goals, whether that means selling their current home so that they may find their dream home, or purchasing the perfect investment opportunity. When she is not helping clients, Patty can be found exploring downtown areas of the Triangle, such as at coffee shops or bookstores. She and her husband also like to visit the restaurants featured on the Guy Fieri show "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." They are both foodies at heart and love to explore new cuisine around the Triangle and beyond.

Samantha Rouse

Buyer Specialist


Sam has always considered herself to be ambitious. In fact, she had a pretty solid career plan in mind even when she was a child. "Real estate was something I always wanted to pursue ever since I was little," she said. "My life plan for myself was to get a degree, work in the web development field, and then switch into real estate later on down the road." She started with the degree at Appalachian State University (a bachelors in computer information science), but once she graduated, she decided that web development just wasn't for her anymore. "This enabled me to get an early start in my real estate career, and I have never looked back," she said. The thing that Sam loves most about the job is being able to meet new people every day. She gets to meet interesting people, and the job is never the same. She loves being able to help people meet their real estate goals, whether it is buying their next home or selling the one that they are in to move on to the next phase in their lives. When she's not working, Sam loves to go to the beach or the mountains, enjoying the fresh air and the beautiful scenery. Sam is an identical twin and enjoys spending time with family.

Teresa Wright

Buyer Specialist


"The most rewarding thing for me is being a part of the process of making a family's dream come true," said Teresa Elliot Glenn. She explained that she loves being able to help families find their dream home or to quickly sell their current property so that they can take the next step in their lives. To do that, Teresa relies on her extensive experience working as a caller and team lead for Buyer, Seller, FSBO and Expired leads for a virtual company. Teresa has worked hard, being promoted along the way and helping to get results for clients. She says, "I am a professional and diligent individual with ambition to succeed. I am very detail-oriented and have an affinity for organization, graphic design and business strategy." She draws on those skills to help her clients find the homes they want or to quickly sell their properties even in a competitive market. "I believe my experience and skill will meet and exceed all the requirements put in front of me," she said. "I know this to be true because I am a hard worker and I take pride in everything placed before me." Teresa says she considers herself to be determined above all and a bit of a perfectionist. When she is not helping clients with their real estate needs, Teresa can be found creating gorgeous decorations for her home or office. She also loves watching a good movie or reading a great thriller, and she travels to unique vacation spots as often as she can.
