Pam prides herself in attention to detail and makes life-long friendships with her clients.

Pam recently completed a 2nd home in the High Country of Western NC so she is ready to expand her market to cover the Triad MLS as well as Watauga County. Having lived 11 years “downtown” Winston Salem in a high-rise, Pam knows the downtown market as well. If you are looking for a seasoned agent who puts her clients interest first, please give Pam a call. Testimonials “I obtained Realtor Pam Hilton representing Mitchell Prime Properties to sell my condo on Collage Village Apartments. After two days she had six offers to buy the property and I was overwhelmed by her professional experience and results. One offer was $10,000 dollars more than I was going to accept. Pam has exceeded my expectation and I have already recommended her to some of my friends and will use her in the future.” - Graziano Camastra, President, Marcos Car Wash and Lube, Winston-Salem, NC “I have known Pam as a client at Talbots for a long time. I was ready to buy a new house and I asked her to help me. She was great to work with! She was patient too because it took awhile to get my inheritance. But she was very diligent and found me my forever home! I really appreciate all she has done for me and I would recommend her to anyone I know!” - Christine Phelps “Pam Hilton is the best real estate agent that we have worked with while selling three homes in the Winston area. Pam is dependable and very knowledgeable with great attention to detail. She has excellent communication skills and always able to be contacted, which was especially important since we had already moved out of state before selling. We would very highly recommend Pam without any reservations.” - Deborah A Myers, PhD “Working with Pam Hilton was instrumental in the outcome of our recent home sale! We will refer her to everyone we meet in the Carolinas. As a busy professional living in Charlotte, Pam did all the heavy lifting and negotiating to limit the back and forth. Our communication was stellar and there wasn’t a day that went by where we were wondering what was going on with offers (yes, we had multiple). Pam is an expert at keeping the momentum and not losing the buyers attention. My wife was continually impressed with Pam keeping things SIMPLE, and Pam treating us as if were were her only clients. I grew up with Pm’s daughter and she actually sold me the home many moons ago as my first purchase. When the time came to offload the home, my first phone call was to Pam because she knows how to conduct business within a healthy time horizon. What a victory for us!” - Whalen and Lindsey “I cannot thank you enough for being there for me every step along the way, answering every question I had, even during your vacation. Moving to a brand new state and starting a new job is extremely stressful, but because of your help and kind heartedness, the move was painless. You are mu realtor for life! Thanks again SO MUCH!” - SHANE
