My name is Bonnie Barnes. I grew up on a farm in Wilson County, NC. After graduating school I worked at a transportation company as a profit and loss/office manager. I decided in 1989 to start a new career and so I began my journey as a successful real estate agent. In 1994, I helped start a partnership and opened a top producing real estate firm called Wilson’s Choice, Inc. Realtors. I noticed that clients and Realtor’s realtor had a frustrating time going through loan transactions. So in 2001, I decided to once again venture into a new career. I wanted to help my borrowers understand the loan process and the Realtor to move the file from sales contract to the closing table in a timely manner.
I am married to Steve Thrasher. Between the two of us, we have four children, eight grandchildren, two rescue cats and a very rambunctious rescued (mix) dog.
Since 2001, there have been many market ups and market downs and lots of stress. Through it all, I have never lost the excitement of sharing with the borrower that “we have final loan approval’. All of my clients are very important to me and my goals are to offer good, better and the best service that I can.

"Bonnie made this very stressful situation so much easier. Working with her was the best part of buying my home. I knew for a fact that Bonnie would work for me the entire time and ALWAYS had my best interest at heart. If there was ever any issue, she knew what to do to solve it. She was knowledgeable, kind, and caring throughout this entire process and I am so thankful for all that she's done. I will only ever recommend Angel Oak Home Loans and Bonnie Reaves. They are truly the best of the best. You won't be disappointed!" -CC
