Joe Lamb Jr. & Associates -- IT'S ALL IN THE NAME
Active in the Outer Banks tourist industry since the 1960's, Joe Lamb Jr. and Associates has been a preeminent name in vacation rentals and sales for more than 40 years. The Joe Lamb name and the JL logo are well known locally and by people across the nation as representing a company dedicated to providing personal attention while addressing specific real estate needs.
Joe and his wife Ann began the company years ago offering comfortable rental options to people who wanted to vacation on the Outer Banks. They began with a handful of vacation cottages and quickly developed a loyal following of families who returned each year. Today, the Joe Lamb inventory includes over 500 properties and offers a variety of choices including cottages, condominiums, townhouses, and houses with as many as 16 bedrooms. Guests today include families of families who rented with Joe Lamb back when the company started.
Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates is still a family owned and operated organization. The name Joe Lamb itself has a personal sound, and for staff and those who know Joe, the name evokes images of the friendly founder. Even though Joe and Ann are semi-retired, they still come to the office each day and remain active in the company. Several other members of the Lamb family work with the company, and non-family employees feel as if they are part of a family unit.
Many changes have taken place as the Outer Banks has developed into the tourist mecca it is today. In the first stages of development, the sound side of the island was a more popular place to stay than along the ocean front. Closer to the mainland for shorter, easier travel by boat or ferry, the sound shore also offered protection from the harsher waves of the Atlantic. Early guests were carried from sound-side hotels and houses to ocean beaches by horse or mule-drawn wagons. When roads and cars appeared in the 1920's the ocean side of the island began to develop and increase in popularity. Some of the original ocean front Nags Head homes still grace the island along the Historic Row District, and the ocean side of the Banks remains the favorite place for guests to stay.
While Joe, Ann, and the staff have witnessed many stages of Outer Banks development, they have also moved through the years bringing changes to their company. While today's guests prefer being close to the ocean and drive themselves to the beach in SUVs, Joe knows they still want good service. "The best vacation is stress-free," notes Joe. "We want to reduce stress for our guests as soon as they make contact with us. We try to make the reservation process as smooth as possible." Toward this goal, Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates is continually updating their user-friendly web site. As the company participates in the going green movement, more and more online options are made available which simplify and streamline vacation searches, property bookings, and reservation confirmations. Despite changes, a constant in Outer Banks tourism is the quality of services offered by Joe Lamb Realty.
