Here at Atlantic Realty we’ll be celebrating our 30th Anniversary and so we’ve been busy gearing up for a full year of fun contests, awesome promotions and giveaways! During this year, we’d like to celebrate the growth of our company, along with that of the Outer Banks. When Atlantic Realty emerged in 1982, Duck and Corolla were only accessible by a dirt road and many of the vacation rental homes didn’t even have air conditioning. Not only that, but most of the cottages didn’t have telephones of TV! Now luxurious Outer Banks vacation rentals are scattered all the way from Carova to South Nags Head, numbering over 25,000. Looking back now, it’s amazing to see how far we’ve come as a community and as a company. Now when you stay in one of our Outer Banks vacation rentals, your temporary home away from home will be equipped with the latest technology and luxurious amenities including private pools, hot tubs and theater rooms.

Here at Atlantic Realty, we’ve been lucky have had certain outer banks vacation rentals in our program ever since the beginning. We’ve also been honored to be serving some of the same homeowners and guests since 1982 as well! We’ve committed ourselves to making sure that your family has the most memorable Outer Banks vacation ever and it’s that dedication to customer service that seems to keep everyone coming back year after year. We are so thankful for these people and would like to show our appreciation throughout the year.

By choice, we’ve remained selective and moderate in size as a company in order to provide only the most personal and immediate service to our valuable homeowners and vacation rental guests. We are a locally owned company that calls the Outer Banks our home. We are very neighborhood oriented and we are eager to share our experience and knowledge with you when you decide to stay at one of our many gorgeous Outer Banks vacation rentals.

To kick off our celebratory year, we announced a Facebook Photo Contest. We asked our fans to send in their captured memories of Outer Banks. We asked them to send us any vintage vacation photos they might still have and share with us their fond memories of the OBX over the years. We loved the responses that we received. It seems that Outer Banks vacation rentals have been a favorite family vacation spot for people everywhere! The photographs were heartwarming and it was wonderful to hear so many dear stories of vacations past.

We’d like to congratulate our winners of the Facebook Photo Contest for receiving the most votes. Our 1st place, Grand Prize went to Larry Snow for his awesome photograph titled “1980’s Surf Fishing.” Larry was awarded a 3 night stay in one of our exquisite oceanfront Outer Banks vacation rentals in Duck. Our third prize went out to Mary Burris for her beautiful photo, “Kid on the Beach with Guitar.” Her prize was a $100 Gift Certificate to Kelly’s/Mako Mikes/Pamlico Jack’s Restaurant. Great job guys!
