About Natalie Shaw

I moved to Chapel Hill in 1985 to attend UNC for my undergraduate and graduate studies, and I have enjoyed living in and around Chapel Hill ever since! Wow, that's over 35 years! Having rented, bought, sold, and built homes in Orange and Chatham counties, I am intimately familiar with the area, which has fueled my desire to help others find their perfect home in the local market. Along with my husband, who works for NC SeaGrant as the editor for Coastwatch magazine, and my two wonderful children, I greatly enjoy living in this incredible community. As a previous high school counselor and substitute teacher in the Chapel Hill City Schools, I have developed extensive knowledge of the school system and family friendly networks. My work at Duke University in the financial aid department, gave me experience analyzing financial data in a problem solving way.   My work in residential sales and my previous work with short-term real estate rentals has given me extensive experience in marketing, property management, contract negotiation and customer service. I look forward to helping you or someone you know with their local real estate needs!  If you find yourself needing to move outside of our market, I also have the resources to locate top notch agents all over the world to assist with those transactions!  Please don't hesitate to contact me with any real estate questions or needs you may have.  I look forward to working with you!  *A portion of all sales are donated to Beautiful Together Animal Sanctuary!


Natalie recently helped us buy our "forever home" in Chapel Hill. I cannot say enough great things about Natalie. She is incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, and consistently goes above and beyond for her clients. While looking at the house (for the second time that day, so my husband could see it that night), she volunteered to entertain our 3 and 4 year old boys so we could focus on the house (she even has a treasure trove of toys for the kids in her car). When there was a minor issue that almost held up closing, Natalie worked lightning fast to resolve the issue so things could go off without a hitch. I would work with Natalie again in a heartbeat.

Team Armand is the absolute best. If you are looking to purchase a home, I 100% recommend working with this team. Natalie Shaw, our realtor, was absolutely no pressure while we conducted our search and then so informative throughout the purchasing process. Salina, helped us get to closing on time and everything necessary to make sure we were purchasing a quality home. They even recommended a great closing attorney. Basically, from start to finish, they made this process easy, understandable, and enjoyable!!

We can't stress enough how awesome Natalie is and was throughout the entire process. As we were looking for our first home, we came into the process as complete novices and really had no idea what to expect. Natalie was great at laying things out very simply and was extremely proactive in getting us answers to questions and even anticipating things we might ask. We feel lucky and fortunate to have met Natalie by chance last summer well before we were ready to start looking for a home. Thankful to have had such a great advocate for us as we bought our first house. My wife and I can both confidently say, there's no way we would've gotten our house with out Natalie and the support of Armand and the rest of the HPW team.

Michael Wallace

Thank you for all of your great work in helping us to find our house in Chapel Hill. We truly appreciate all of the time you put in with us and all of the great guidance and support that you gave us. Buying a house while still being remote could have been a rough process, but working with you and the group at Team Armand made the process was seamless through closing! We will happily recommend you to anyone we know looking to buy in Chapel Hill in the future. Thank you again!

Anna Talley

A good friend recommended Natalie to us for buying our house in the Durham / Chapel Hill area. We were so fortunate to have found her! She is experienced and knowledgeable and gave a focused attention to the particular details of our home search. It was through her guidance that we were able to discover a neighborhood that was right for us and a house we are happy to call home. It is unlikely we would have found this fine location otherwise. Natalie is a pleasure to work with. She really understands each of the steps involved in the process of buying a house. She is able to anticipate what is coming next and is always prepared to address each component in the process. She is working for you and looking out for your best interests. She is prompt in all her correspondence--replies to your questions quickly and gives timely guidance for what you need to do next. She has a relaxed and pleasant demeanor. It is like looking for your new home with a friend, a very professional and well-informed friend, a five-star guide! We too will be confident in recommending her in the future to our friends.

Jane and Charles Menzel

We were extremely lucky to work with Natalie! Her knowledge and expertise was essential in finding us the right home, and we could not be happier. Home buying is supposed to be hard so we were shocked with how easy it was with Natalie and her group. We will definitely be recommending her to all our friends and colleagues. Thank you, Natalie!

Michael Reid

I can't recommend Natalie enough! She was an excellent realtor from beginning to end. She explained every step of the buying process to us and helped us navigate our way through a tough market. Natalie is professional, diligent and knowledgeable. She was willing to put in the time and work to make sure we found the house that was a perfect fit for our family!

Alicia O'Sullivan

As first-time home buyers, we could not have asked for a better agent than Natalie! Natalie helped us find the perfect home and then worked feverishly to get us all the information we needed to make the best purchasing decision. She was so incredibly patient and reassuring with our concerns about the home buying process, and always made sure we knew when major milestones were approaching. We are so lucky to count her as a new life-long friend, and will continue to work with Team Armand in the future!

Jordan Rapp

Natalie was a joy to work with and her energy was contagious. She was responsive and diligent in working through our first home buying process. Not only did she answer all of our questions, but she taught us a lot along the way. Thank you Natalie!!

Arielle V.

We first met Natalie last fall when we were starting to think of buying a house. When we decided to really start looking this Spring Natalie was with us through and through. In a hot Durham market she worked endlessly to help us find the right house. While the houses are flying of the market Natalie never seemed to get discouraged and kept us from giving up. She was always available and was very flexible with our crazy work schedules. We are happy to report we are homeowners now!! Thanks Natalie your the best!

Jorge and Maria Pozo/Corrao

My wife and I met Natalie Shaw online first while looking for a house in Chapel Hill area. We soon had the pleasure of meeting Natalie in person and enjoyed her help and support through the process of buying a home for our son. Natalie always carried herself with vibrant energy, attentive presence, light spirit and positive demeanor. Natalie was so active in addressing any issues we raised promptly and was always punctual in meeting timeframes and expectations. Above all, Natalie was candid, diligent, forthcoming and sincerely honest as if she was buying a home for her own family. We enjoyed Natalie's professional and personal approach and we certainly will call on her for friends and for our real estate needs in the future without any reluctance.

Natalie's sharp eye was indispensable as we were looking for a new home to buy. She spotted potential problem areas that only a true professional could see. She was friendly and nice to work with, and quick to respond at all hours. She walked us through the entire purchasing process so we knew exactly what needed to happen when--we were more than comfortable following her lead in negotiations, and both she and the entire staff at Team Armand made our purchasing experience very positive. Frankly, she managed us very well, easing our worries when they arose, and showing us solutions when we thought there might not be any. A wonderful person and a consummate professional. We'd recommend Natalie in a heartbeat!

Charles and Amelia Fiore

We were moving from NY to NC and did an online search for area realtors. Armand contacted us right away and was very responsive to our questions about the area. We first came to view some properties in April and began working with Armand's buyers agent Natalie Shaw. Natalie was wonderful. She was very informative about the area and extremely generous with her time. We had a pretty specific needs list which was a little difficult to find but Team Armand was able to do it. Since we were out of the area Natalie even visited and videoed houses for us to see. We took several trips between April and August 2015 and each time we received the same great service from Natalie. Since we were unable to be in town for the inspections Natalie handled that too. The provided us with excellent referrals which was extremely helpful since we were moving from out of town and unfamiliar with the area. We highly recommend Team Armand!

Cheyenne Dallesandro

It was our great pleasure to work with Natalie in purchasing our home in Chapel Hill. From the moment we talked with Natalie on the phone to the closing of the home, we had full confidence in her abilities as a real estate agent. Natalie made our move from the west coast to the east coast as smooth as possible. We were so grateful for all her dedication in being our eyes, ears and presence here in Chapel Hill while we still resided in California. Natalie is a wonderful and kind person. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in working with a top quality agent. Thank you, Natalie!

Dave and Lisette McEwen

We had lived in our previous home for over 40 years and began the process of selling our home and buying a new home with a heightened sense of anxiety. We were surprised to feel so immediately comfortable with and confident in our dealings with Team Armand and with Natalie. Natalie brought an efficiency and genuine dedication to the task of helping us find our new home. Her attention to detail, prompt response to all questions and concerns, and impressive knowledge of the local housing market helped us every step of the way. If you are looking for a highly competent, always professional agent with a "can do" attitude, then Natalie is the person for the job!

Larry and Becky Smith

We had a wonderful experience working with Natalie and Team Armand. Natalie was professional, knowledgeable, and extremely responsive. She helped us navigate every aspect of the home building process, and her assistance with communicating our needs to the builder was invaluable. We would definitely work with Natalie again, and will recommend her to others!

Lindsey and Gary Dimond/Boyd

On the beginning of this year my sister and I have the privilege to work with Natalie. She helped my sister to find the perfect home for her and her two children. Natalie is a wonderful person/agent. Very professional, helpful and kind. Thank you Natalie! I am looking forward to seeing you soon.

Hector Gonzalez

Natalie was wonderful to work with. She was prompt, helpful and patient. As first-time home sellers, we had a lot of questions. She spent a lot of time at the beginning of the process to make sure we understood everything we needed to know and then spent a lot of time as we were selling and under contract to make the process move as smooth as possible. We definitely recommend her.

Natalie Vizuete

I was introduced to Natalie after using an agent who covered the entire RTP area on a part time basis. I needed an agent that knew the Chapel Hill area (radius of 15 miles) well and was attentive and responsive -Natalie satisfied these needs very well. But more than this, she took the time to know what my desires and limitations were, then crafted a search that was easy to follow via the online MLS. She was very responsive which allowed us to compete to get the house I wanted against other bids. The process was not always tidy given the personalities of the sellers, but Natalie helped it work with her sensible suggestions. I highly recommend her as an agent in the Chapel Hill area.

Philip Smith

As a first-time home buyer, I could not have asked for a better realtor. I met Natalie at an open house while considering on buying into the local market. She immediately provided me with information about homes I may be interested in and was able to track down a few opportunities I had been researching to get walk-throughs arranged. I knew without at doubt; Natalie was someone I could count on that I wanted to represent me. From the beginning, she was organized, responsive, detailed, motivated, and great to work with. She took responsibility to make sure everything was accounted for in the process that the buyer had to do. Natalie listened thoughtfully offering professional advice at every turn. She was calm and attentive keeping everyone on the same path. I feel truly lucky meeting Natalie by chance because I do not think I could have found as good a realtor in the market if I tried. I would recommend her services to anyone and would use her for my next transaction without a doubt.

Team Armand of Coldwell Banker helped us navigate a very important decision that will see us to a very pleasant next stage of life: retirement. My husband and I have completely opposite ideas but this did not divert Ms. Shaw, buyers agent for team Armand. Ms. Shaw's communication abilities allowed her to navigate within our 31 year marriage, I warned her that "we are the worst couple ever", but Ms. Shaw said "no way, power onward". Ms. Shaw does not give up, is one of the most determined people ever, and is the best example of beautiful Southern manners. Ms. Shaw's marketing abilities saved me 7 K. My experience purchasing land with Ms. Shaw was comprehensive. Armand, sellers agent was aware of all the steps we need to take and was spot on with our next step toward achieving our goal of building a proper retirement smaller home. Natalie and Armand give back to their community. Natalie Shaw is an animal advocate despite a busy family and work. Armand is a skilled musician recently participating in a Hurricane Matthew benefit raising 10 k in 3 hours. Salina the office manager is the "glue". Everything is smooth as silk given Salina's watchful eyes.

Bea Kendall

Thank you very much Natalie. I have enjoyed your kind and gentle style. You are very helpful and attentive without being pushy in any way. You follow through on what you say. You are very client oriented and very efficient. You get things done and it is easy to speak with you .I definitely will refer you to others who are buying or selling a house in your area. Thank you for great service.

Chris Saade

We really enjoyed working with Natalie and the Armand team. They were very knowledgable about the area. Natalie took time to get to know us and what we were looking for and helped us every step of the way. She made the whole process very easy, was always friendly and professional, and had our best interest in mind. I would highly recommend Natalie Shaw and the whole Armand team to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Chapel Hill area.

Chris McKee

I could not possibly have had a better experience with Natalie and Team Armand. They were recommended to me by my dad. My boyfriend and I were first time home buyers who knew NOTHING about buying houses. When we first met with Natalie, we were still on the fence about buying vs continuing to rent. She did not pressure us into buying in any way. My boyfriend and I are not average customers. We don't have kids, and don't love neighborhood living, so of course we chose the most non traditional house we could find. To top it off, we had a little over 30 days before the lease on our old place was up, so we had to move FAST. Add in that we knew nothing at all about home buying, loans, etc. and you can see that Natalie had a lot of work and educating to do with us! Natalie was able to give us the best recommendations for everything from a mortgage broker, to home owners insurance, inspectors, and even movers. Eventually we just quit shopping around for these services and went with her recommendation every time because it was always the best deal. We have been in our home for a couple weeks now and I keep saying it's like being on vacation every day! We couldn't be happier and I really think a lot of buyers agents would have thrown in the towel when faced with our low odds of actually acquiring this house. But Natalie didn't do that. She was communicating with us on weekends and after hours- we felt like her only customers! Please do yourself a favor and go with Natalie and Team Armand for your house buying or selling needs. I'm really convinced there's no one better!!

Heather Barrett

When we began looking for our new home my wife and I were in different states, making any purchase decision that much more complicated. It didn't help matters that we both had different ideas of what our perfect home would look like. Natalie was exceptionally patient with us and helped throughout the process. She was always friendly, professional, and prompt. She was also able to answer most of my questions on the spot, and even when she didn't have the answer, she'd get back to me on it quickly. Natalie was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend her to other buyers.

Working with Natalie has been great! She works very hard and makes sure you have the help and support you need. She was very patient with us as we searched far and wide for a home, entertaining all different styles and locations, and bringing in others to advise on potential house projects. Would be more than happy to work with her again!

Jennifer Orme-Zavaleta

Natalie was wonderful when we purchased a new house this spring in a crazy market. She worked hard to help us find a house and negotiate a contract quickly and easily. I highly recommend Natalie and Team Armand to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the area.

Hillary MacKenzie

Communication is so important in the real estate process and Natalie Shaw excels at all aspects of communicating with her clients! We have bought and sold several homes with different realtors over the past 30 years; we can honestly say that our experience with Natalie was the most informative and enjoyable.

In the beginning, Natalie conducted a thorough market analysis that allowed us to price our home very competitively in the market; she followed this up with a fantastic job coordinating the listing and photography of our home and represented our interests well throughout the process. She manages information quickly and efficiently but also considers all perspectives on a situation. Her authentic and good-natured approach was refreshing during difficult negotiations.

Natalie is genuine, honest, and able to handle whatever comes her way without undue stress. We recommend her without reservation and would absolutely ask Natalie Shaw to assist us with a real estate transaction again!

We met Natalie at an open house. Our son was looking to buy into the market. We knew immediately she is the type of person you want to work with. Her follow-up was fantastic, detail-oriented, fast. That is how she turned us into a client, and the "fantastic, detail-driven, speed" continued. Easy to work with, willing to give you sound advice even when it isn't always what you want to hear, and stays on top of everything. She understands the anxiety of home buying and helps you achieve your goals. We always felt our son was her most important client. The closing had some unique problems, not the least of which was a snow storm. Natalie stayed calm and kept everyone on course. She is a fabulous realtor and we recommend her without reservation.

Mary Musacchia

Natalie was great from start to finish. She worked hard to find us the property we were looking for and always with an easy going but highly professional demeanor.
