55 years of What Works!

The Outer Banks of North Carolina has all the qualities dreams are made of skies that reflect a beautiful azure, sea oats that lazily dance in warm salty breezes, and waves that create a rhythmic backdrop to each day. For many, this is a dream vision. For a few, this is the 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. spent his summers vacationing here as a kid and remembers how desolate and undeveloped the area was, even then he knew there was something special about this little slice of paradise.

"There were many times I would sit on the front porch and never see or hear a car," Joe said. "There was one road, what is now the beach road. Everyone knew each other."

With their knowledge of the community, a background in real estate, and traditional values Joe and his wife, Ann, embarked on an incredible journey. They decided to start their own vacation rental and real estate sales business, thus Joe Lamb Jr. & Associates was born. Today almost 50 years later this company is still operating on the same traditions and values it was founded upon.

Family has always been a cornerstone of the company. So much so that over half of the employees currently working have been with the company for ten years or more. The Lamb family and its employees are passionate about what they do and take great pride in providing guests and homeowners with exceptional service.

"As a matter of fact, quite a few of our guests and homeowners are connected to our staff and company in family-like ways," Joe said. "We talk like we are old friends remembering special occasions and family events. We understand their family traditions and they appreciate our traditional values."

Through the years the company has grown and is now a competitive force in today's vacation rental and sales market. Joe Lamb Jr. & Associates has always and will always be committed to making your dream vacations come true. Our family looks forward to taking care of your family.
