March Madness Luncheon Recap
It was a fun afternoon with amazing barbeque provided by Pigman’s BBQ and Southern Shores Subway. Tons of gifts were raffled off and there was even a little basketball played between OBAR CEO Willo Kelly & 2019 President J-P Peron!
Each year, our amazing Affiliate Council hosts this contest and FREE luncheon as a benefit for our REALTOR® members. This playful and networking event is always a chance to kick back and take a break from your busy schedule. This year’s event, chaired by Julie Walter of Homes and Land of the Outer Banks was no different.
Congratulations to David Hines, of Coastal NC Realty Group who won the 2019 OBAR Bracket Contest with a total of 149 points. Hal Scarborough finished second with 133 points and once again, Wayne Strickland of Stellar Properties finished last with 11 points. Way to go!
This year there was a tie for the Spirit Award. Angie Brady-Daniels of Manteo Furniture Company and Lori Brooks of Coastal NC Realty Group won and both enjoyed picking out prizes.

CE with Mark Saunders Recap–Why did the Date of the GENUP Change, Was My CE Credit Reported?
We apologize for any inconvenience you may have had due to the date of the PM GENUP being moved from Wednesday, April 17th to Tuesday, April 16th. Less than two weeks before the event, the Comfort Inn informed us there was a double booking for the use of the conference room on the 17th for our reservation made in August of 2018. As a result, OBAR staff considered many alternatives in rescheduling the class. It was determined that the best option was to move the GENUP to Tuesday. Otherwise we would have had to rearrange all three classes causing significant conflicts for attendees
In making this decision, staff had to contact multiple parties–including the NC Real Estate Commission which required two days of communication. Immediately upon receiving confirmation from the hotel, Mark Saunders, and the Commission, we began notifying everyone registered for the GENUP via the email addresses listed in our membership database. It was during this process we discovered we did not have correct emails on file for several attendees. In the event that your information (email, address, phone, etc.) changes, please notify OBAR. It is important that we have current information on file. In addition, please make sure to add outerbanksrealtors.com to your “safe-senders” list.
Due to Charter-Spectrum internet outages throughout the Outer Banks, and NCREC being closed on Friday, April 19th, there was a delay in posting of CE credit on NCREC’s webiste. However, rest assured, all credits have been uploaded to the commission and should be reflected accordingly.
Thank you to everyone who attended Mark Saunders’ CE last week. We appreciate your patience and understanding of this unexpected situation.
