First off, the metal building will kill your signal. That is your biggest obstacle.

Your neighbor was using a patch antenna if it was a 12x12 square. It's more of a directional antenna pointing in a specific direction. It is not an omni-directional, those are the "stick" type of antennas.

Without knowing your budget it is hard to recommend equipment. There are plenty of options out there, but it comes down to what you want to spend. The repeater kit that I spoke of is around $400, but it is pretty powerful for only 300'. It uses 15db gain antennas.
