    The Outer Banks Association of REALTORS® is pleased to announce that we have completely revamped our Sponsorship Program for 2019.  In fact, we are now calling it our “Community Partner Program”.  This program is always up for your comments and suggestions as we look forward to meeting your needs as our valuable partner

    Our Community Partners are made highly visible to our membership through a variety of ways. Through dozens of events, our 7’ tall sponsor banners make well over 4,000 viewer impressions each year. Our event attendees are among the most productive in local real estate and many are the decision makers in their firms.

    Your support is greatly appreciated by our membership and leadership especially. To find out how you can become a Community Partner, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to working with you in a productive new year!
