For anyone selling any property in the Outer Banks, I would highly recommend Barry Breit of Carolina Designs Realty. In a very tight market, Barry is an experienced realtor who was able to network with other agents to maximize showings and get my property sold. He was always keeping me informed of his marketing and had great attention to details in maintaining the property in good showing condition before showings. He even was able to get aerial photos of the property to maximize its views for showing potential. When small repairs were needed, he had contacts who promptly got the job done. And once we got a sales contract, Barry kept me on top of what needed to be done regarding closing out accounts, insurance and finalizing the sale. For any Outer Banks sales, Barry is the man!
