Real Estate Experts?




Hello! If all goes well my wife and I will close in mid May and will be looking for properties in OBX. Needless to say, we have been looking and driving around some properties that we like in our spare time. It would probably be beneficial to connect with someone that knows the local market thoroughly. According to my better half, Duck and anything north of it is not even being looked at due to traffic during the season.

Anything Nags Head and south is also out and Colington is definitely out (the existence of a gate to go in where she wanted to look at properties was a turn off). So that leaves us with lower Southern Shores, all of Kitty Hawk and only KDH proper. We have some properties that eventually we would like to tour on KH Ride Ln, Lindbergh Ave, Tamarack Dr and some are on 12 and Ocean Blvd on Southern Shores.

If anyone knows who would be the person for the job, please, do let us know. We will be homeless soon!

We've been happy in Colington, been here 15 years. Probably the biggest amenity if you want to boat is buying property on a deep water canal. Or buying soundfront property. Also being 4 miles from the hustle & bustle of tourist season is nice IMO.

Good luck!


RE: Real Estate Experts?




Expert, not I, but as a local I'm pretty familiar with a few locations you mention. I live in Kitty Hawk and it appears you want to be close to the Beach based on some streets mentioned. Sections of Lindbergh Street are seriously affected by flooding in Major Storms, you would need an honest person to indicate the serious spots. Ride Lane is secluded, lots of vegetation and almost private, however it backs up to the ByPass. Car/Truck noise ???????????? 12/Ocean Blvd in Southern Shores will really raise your price, but is a main road. Oceanfront seems stable there but $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Where Ocean Blvd branches off seems like the in place. I'm surprised that Tim, the Connection's resident Realtor hasn't chimed in. Good Luck

How about our local resident here on this forum = Tim from Joe Lamb Realty. (expert)



RE: Real Estate Experts?




Yes Tim is the man. Trustworthy and knowledgeable..


RE: Real Estate Experts?




Thanks guys,

I would shy away from Ride Ln since it backs to the bypass and buyers don't like it there compared to other areas. You need to stop by my office and have a long talk.




RE: Real Estate Experts?




Don't start MikeW - we all know you don't like Tim and never miss a chance to remind us.

RE: Real Estate Experts?




Good Morning all. Can’t go wrong with Tim, but if I can help in anyway let me know.

Thanks,

RE: Real Estate Experts?




Thank you all kindly for the advice, recommendations and pointers. I will be contacting Tim in this coming week, as it would appear Joe Lamb Realty has a good chunk of the homes that we have our cross-hairs on.

Just curious, did another member make a post, or are you all just preemptively banning someone?
MikeW and I have not always seen eye-to-eye, but this seems random and petty.
Sarcasm can be humor, for those with a sense of humor.
Or not.
Maybe.
Since it is a message board and all.

MikeW's post was flagged out of existence. It didn't add anything to the conversation and was just an attack on Tim (although a minor one). I didn't flag it, but I can see why other would. MikeW has some stupid grudge against Tim and the majority of his posts represent that. Very sad existence.

Those who are easily offended usually are.
Now we have flaggers acting on behalf of another fave?
That's a boatload of crap. Let posters make up their own mind, Gladys.
I hope I shall never cross the line of judgment of the gang of five (or perhaps I just did? *poof*)
But, after all is said and done, its just a message board, not real life like twitfacegram.
Hatterasnc, out.


RE: Real Estate Experts?




Not to change course from the original post. But since MikeW was brought up, I must add my 2 cents to the post regarding him. Mikey is a good person. I spoke with him before regarding his feelings towards Tim. Although I didn't quite understand the situation that Mike explained to me. I respect the fact that we all have perspectives and opinions that others might not understand. Both individuals are good folk that deserve our respect.
Back to your original programing... Thumbs up


RE: Real Estate Experts?




Mike W appears to come alive on this board to denigrate Tim. I have no idea why, nor do I really care why, but it certainly does get old and detracts from the community of helpfulness.


RE: Real Estate Experts?




We like Mike W....he adds humor, scarcasm, nastiness & interesting stuff to his posts. Always fun to read his posts when he gets into nastiness with another poster!!
And MikeW, don't be complaining about my spelling of scarcasm.!

Well Tim, since I was to first to recommend you, I think I should get a tiny commission IF you do sell them a house.!! HAHA.

RE: Real Estate Experts?




It’s a forum board. Nothing to get in a twist about.

Tim, a fave? Now that's funny. It wouldn't be a problem if it happened once or twice, or even three times, but it's just about every time Tim posts something. It's old and not needed. It adds nothing to the forum. I'm not the biggest Tim fan, but even I can see the problem here.

As for letting the posters make up their own mind, I'd argue that's exactly whats happening. 5+ people thought the post added nothing to the forum and was just a personal attack. Poof, gone. It has to be a pretty lame post to make 5 people flag it.

There are no moderators on this site, so Will put the flag rule into effect. It's been working pretty good. If you don't like it, there are plenty of other un-moderated sites out there. They don't last very long though, so you'll be moving a lot. Being online and anonymous gives people a voice they would never use in person. If you wouldn't say it to a person's face, you shouldn't say it (online or otherwise). It's a pretty simple formula.

This ain't my first rodeo here, John.
Next time you want to lecture me, feel free not to.

Sorry, didn't mean to lecture, but you defended MikeW and didn't even see his post. In my mind, you were lecturing us all on what we should do in a private forum. But you're right, I know you have seen this and done this. I apologize, you've been around enough to know.

This is a private forum though, so the rules Will has set will stand. They have worked so far. If they change, the people will need to figure out if they fit their needs, just like they do today.

Dude, cool with me and no apology requested, expected nor required. Your's offered is appreciated.

Answering visitors questions is helpful. Agreeably disagreeing or commenting with opinions is cool. Flagging based on personal disagreement is available to those who are personally affected or offended, but IMO should be held close and in reserve (except for spam bots - they should be flagged with prejudice??).

Be well.

No, just me. He got his underwear bunched up years ago when I told him he was wrong about stuff like beach nourishment - as I recall. Back then anyone could post anonymously and he did. I never did but many would. When Will required registration many just could not face it and they left, sadly he didn't.
