The Outer Banks of North Carolina has all the qualities dreams are made of: skies that reflect a most brilliant blue; sea oats that sway in warm salty breezes; waves that create a rhythmic backdrop to each day. For many, this is a dream vision. For a few, this is a way of life. For some, this is a deep family tradition.
Tradition defines Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates – a renowned vacation company on the Outer Banks. Joe Lamb, Jr. first entered the real estate business fresh out of college, he was introduced to his father-in-law’s real estate business on the then undeveloped Outer Banks of North Carolina. The building blocks of success, community involvement, integrity, and traditional values were laid in place, and Joe Lamb carried them forward. Joe and his wife Ann opened Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates in 1968 with nothing to sell, nothing to rent, but with a sense of things to come. Today, 46 years later, this company is still very much a family business sustained by deeply instilled traditions and values. While the company excels at real estate sales and management, it specializes in family vacation rentals on a dream-like barrier island.
As an example of this company’s commitment to traditions and values, Joe, the patriarch of Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates points to the fact that over half of those currently employed have been with the company for ten years or more. He describes the Lamb family and its employees as passionate about what they do and explains they take great pride in providing their guests and homeowners with a level of personalized service that is second to none. He goes on to say, “As a matter of fact, quite a few of our guests and homeowners are connected to our staff and company in family-like ways. We talk like we are old friends remembering special occasions and family events. We understand their family traditions and they appreciate our traditional values.”
While tradition is the backbone of Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates, the company has grown and is now a competitive force in the vacation rental and sales market of the times. This thriving and respected North Carolina business maintains a global outreach with social media pages, blogs, and state-of-the-art vacation rental and real estate websites. Having begun in a time before computers, faxes, and email, the company has moved with the tides of change while holding on to the traditional values upon which it was founded.
Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates sells, lists, rents, and manages real estate properties on the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina. Since 1968, the tradition continues. •
