~ Linda Reilly, April 2013 Guest in SA005 Sentimental Journey
"Great service, friendly staff. Helped with directions to the home. Better that other rental service we ever had! Thanks!"
~ Ninna Saunders, 2013 Guest in "Someday Came" OS1Q
"We've rented from them for six years and have been very pleased with their service."
~ Gloria Walterreit, Guest from Ocean's 11 in Duck in March 2013
"We felt so relaxed and taken care of from the minute we opened the door."
~ Andy Ogden, Guest from Duck Station November 2012
"Great experience overall - super easy. Would definitely rent with Outer Banks Blue again. Loved having towels, sheets, etc included and not paying extra fees that add up like with other agencies. It was a straightforward and easy process. Also loved the keyless entry!! No need to worry about driving to a rental office after a 6 hour drive and making it there before they close, or dropping keys off before we leave, or worrying about which family member had the key. So easy!"
~ Rachel Rubino, 2012 Thanksgiving Guest
"I read an article in one of the area magazines about how the business got started. It was very impressive. Thank you for a great experience."
~ 2012 Marlene Singleton, from Midlothian Virginia
“…It makes us proud that our home is renting so well and that we're getting such positive feedback from our guests…your crew is doing a great job and we are thrilled with all you do for us.”
~ MB, Owner, DL002 Wine N Sea
"My wife and I were looking for a nice place to have a family vacation as well as a very small wedding. We searched for week and then found this property. Cinco Palmas was EXACTLY what we were looking for! We were able to invite our very closest friends and family and have everyone stay in the same location. We were even able to have our wedding photographer travel with us and enjoy the week as well AND give her and her boyfriend their own privacy by setting aside one of the apartments for them. The location is "out of the way" but close enough to everything you will need. We are already looking forward to spending our Anniversary in the Outer Banks, and we will be booking another property for it through Outer Banks Blue... and we may very well Re-book the Cinco Palmas property!"
~ John Osborne, guest in SNH025 Cinco Palmas October 2012
"Looking for a painless way to book an awesome OBX vacation? Use Outer Banks Blue Realty Services...FIVE STAR all-the-way!!!"
~ Romualdo Quimpo, Tropical Dream guest in October 2012
"Not only would I recommend Outer Banks Blue, I have recommended it and had people use it."
"Sharon White, 2012 Guest- 2nd year in SNH011 No Wake Zone"
"I have been vacationing on the Outer Banks since 1997 and have used a few other rental companies. This was the easiest company and I was very satisfied with my whole experience. I appreciate the fact that they are paperless and was able to do absolutely everything online."
~ Lori Balmoos, BB006 Duck Station guests in 2012
"We have been using Blue for over 5 years and they are always friendly, helpful and efficient. We like the blue ribbon early arrival policy."
~ Barbara Staley, guests in OC007 Avalon in Duck 2012
"Friends use a different agency and have to stop at the agency to pick up code, send in payment (no online service), etc. Love the booking and transaction process being all electronic. Also love those blue bags you leave for us as I use them all the time when I shop at home in FLA. The insulated bags are great....beats the bagels my friends get :) Recommend you guys to anyone who would ask. Been renting from you for years even before you were Outer Banks Blue."
~ Judy Napolitano, guests in CP003 Dreamweaver 2012"
"Great company! My friends have a house in Corolla and are switching from Brindley to your company. I told them we were pleased with the house and it was very clean."
~ Susan Roy, PI101 Our Sand Castle Guest in September 2012
"We have been coming to the OBX for 17 years. I think this is our best experience with a house and rental company. Keep up the good work. We would highly recommend Outer Banks Blue to our friends."
~ Dave Orton, Ford Cliff, PA
"It was so easy to make a decision about a rental since I knew up front what my costs would be unlike websites where you have to reserve the house and hold your breath and see what the total cost would be. This is so much easier. I plan to rent from you again next year, hopefully Orion Landing will be listed by you again next year. Thank you."
~ Rickie Probert of Beaver Falls, PA in 2012
"We loved the keyless entry. No need for everyone to worry about keys. I liked the all inclusive price. I love having the sheets and towels provided. It saved us probably 4-5 bags that we would have had to bring with us. The reservation was easy to make, pleasant staff and liked the periodic e-mails we received from you about our up-coming stay."
~ June Lentz, KH001 Sea Spray Guest in 2012
"Love the early check in and keyless entry option - one of the primary reason we choose you."
~Kathy Tuite, PI146 Gem of the Ocean Guest, 2012
"I would DEFINITELY use Outer Banks Blue again. EVERYONE was pleasant, helpful and quick to reply to questions. It is also nice when linens are provided- not all agencies have that. And of course we were happy to have found a house that fit the number of people we had but also allowed out 2 labs to come! We appreciate that and appreciate the owners for allowing us to do so."
~Gary Rieger, Kestrel's Perch guest in Duck, 2012
"Loved it all even looked for home to move down to on permanent bases in couple years! I would highly recommend Outer Banks Blue and have about two dozen times."
~Todd Dunlap, Green Iguana SS011 Guest in 2012
"Everyone I spoke to was Avery pleasant and very knowledgable seems like a great team of people. Looking forward to finding another home for next summer."
~Rita Moffat, "Sounds Perfect" guest in Corolla Light Resort 2012
"This was our 9th visit to OBX in the last 5 years and 1st time renting with OBB. We loved the keyless entry so we could get into the house faster than picking up a key! The house really was amazing and you can see that the owner and rental company really do care and want the renter to have a great experience and vacation. They thought of everything and you can tell that the owner takes care of their property."
~Karen Siddiqi Guest staying in SNH030 "Salt Shaker"
"We love the Blue Ribbon Property amenities, especially the keyless entry and early check in. We specifically focussed on OBX Blue properties for our choice of a vacation home rental for 2013."
~Janice Defalco, Guest in NH003 "High Tide" from 2012
"I really like the online check- in process. Also, the keyless entry works well when there are multiple adult family members. Love it!!!!!"
~Renee Webb, Guest at KDH001 "A Wrighteous Time" in 2012
"Excellent all-around experience. We choose a beach vacation every year and Outer Banks Blue definitely handled the process the best we have ever experienced."
~Debra Giangiulio, Guest at "Just Chillin' " in Kill Devil Hills, NC
"We have staying in OBX for the past six years all with different rental companies. Our stay with you has been the most satisfying. Your staff is customer oriented and professional, you provided great information about the property and we were very impressed with the thoughtful goodie bag. The property was perfect! Thanks!
~Janet Hudak, 2012 Guest in PI146 Gem of the Ocean
"Love working with your company. We have rented homes for 20 years - you are by far the best. Most responsive and nicest!"
~ Laura Scholz, 2012 Guest from WH029 Four Winds
"Honestly, it was an all around easy process. I've rented several houses in different states and it's always a little nerve wracking not knowing what you're going to get when you get there. I was especially nervous since I was the one who planned it, with family coming from several different states. I would recommend getting floors plans (even if it's just a simple sketch) and square footage for the properties. The square footage was the only question the agents weren't able to answer. Again, the space was a pleasant surprise as it was much bigger then expected."
~Jessica Giles from Summerville, South Carolina- 2012 Guest
"This was the most pleasant company to work with and we have been coming to the OBX for over 10 years. Loved the updates and reminders throughout the whole reservation process!"
~Paula Shepherd, 2012 Guest from NH003 "High Tide"
"The service provided by Outer Banks Blue was excellent. From the initial contact to our arrival, we felt confident in our choice of agent. Service is obviously the office mantra. Whether online or by phone, all our questions, concerns were immediately met. Bravo!"
~Dorothy Simich, 2012 guest from "Atlantis @ South Beach"
"Great, helpful, polite representatives when we did need to call for any reason either prevacation or while there. My family and I thank you for such a wonderful experience. We will definitely be returning to Duck."
~2012 Guest in CD001 "Sand Palace OBX" in Duck, NC
"We have rented from Outer Banks Blue for the last six years and have had great service, quality properties and wonderful experiences."
~ Greg Kotlinski, 2012 Guest in PI130 "Celestial Seasuns"
"We had a very good experience with OBB. Would definitely consider renting from them again (already thinking about it for next year). LOVE the keyless entry (when it's working!) Staff is super friendly and helpful."
~ Sharon Vay, 2012 Guest in PI101 "Our Sand Castle" in Corolla
"As a first time vacationer to the Outer Banks, we were very pleased with our overall experience. Outer Banks Blue made our rental experience hassle-free and very enjoyable. From keyless check-in to easy check-out, it could not have been easier! Friends who have been to the Outer Banks many times were surprised at all the benefits Outer Banks Blue Realty offered, including the keyless access, and included linens and towels."
~ Karen Mangin, 2012 Guest in "As Time Goes By" CC005
"Everyone that I spoke with at Outer Banks Blue Realty was extremely helpful and very friendly. I will definitely recommend the company to family and friends."
~Maris Johnson, 2012 Guest in "Simple Pleasures" CD003
"I would like to thank you and your coworkers for the superb job you did handling our reservation, answering our questions, and keeping us updated. I have been visiting the Outer Banks for 45 years and have interacted with several real estate companies. I was extremely impressed with all of my interactions with Outer Banks Blue personnel every time I had a question or concern. I have already recommended your company to several of my friends and will continue to do so. Thank-you again for making this vacation an especially enjoyable experience. Please share this letter with all employees so they will know that their professional and friendly manners are appreciated."
~Vicki Jenkins, 2012 Guest in Nags Head, NC
"I liked the keyless entry and the fact that we didn't have to 'check-in' at an office as we did a few years ago with another real estate company. OBB's way of doing it is extremely convenient!"
~2012 Guest from "Ocean Pines" - WH019
"I am VERY sorry to say that I don't remember the names of people I talked to. However, EVERY person that I contacted was professional and friendly. Each one made me feel that I was a valued client."
~2012 Guest from "Pelican's Paradise" in Nags Head
"We were impressed. it was Sunday, July 4th weekend and we had an AC problem. It was fixed on the same day without any hassle...the staff is courteous, pleasant and knowledgeable. Our family hadn't"t been to Duck since 1997, and they helped me find the right house for all our needs."
~2012 Guest from "Ponducky"- SA011
"Great customer service. Very easy to work with. I love that you don’t add on extra fees. This is our second rental with OBX blue and with same house and would definitely rent again. Have recommended you to others as well."
~ 2012 Guest from "Margaretville" – WH011
""The property is amazing, everything is included with no hidden costs even for our dog. This is the third time we have rented houses on OBX all with different companies. This is the only company we will deal with in the future! They are the "Real Deal"! "
~ 2012 Guest from "A Wrighteous Time"
"I really liked your realty company. This is the first year we have booked with you, and we have been coming to the Outer banks for 10 years. I liked the convenience of your company (everything by e-mail, and getting directions and a keycode prior to coming."
~ 2012 Guest from "Driftwood Castle" – WH001
"The most friendly and professional staff that we used in our more than 30 years vacationing on the Outer Banks."

"If we rent in Outer Banks again, I will not use another rental agency other than Outer Banks Blue. Extremely professional, friendly staff with great service. Thank you."
~ JoyT. KDH008 "American Dream" Guest from 2011
"I thought the booking process was easy and convenient.....and the presentation of the property was great. We felt at home immediately. We were so pleased with our stay at A Promise Kept. The decor was so homey and inviting and we've rented a number of large homes/cabins in the past five years for our family Christmas Reunion, and this was considered the “Top Choice”! There were 16 of us and we were all very happy with the home. Thank You! Definitely will rent from Outer Banks Blue should we return to the Outer Banks”
~ "A Promise Kept" guests from December 2010
"The Agents I spoke with were all very helpful. It is great to have linens and all fees included in the up-front pricing! The website is also very well designed and the virtual tour was great!”
~ "Sea Spray" guests from Thanksgiving 2010
"We had a wonderful time in this house. The ocean views and breezes were terrific. Everyone loved the closeness to the beach, and the overall great location. Watching dolphins swim by while having morning coffee on the deck was a real treat to us Northerners."
~ "Sea Spirit" guests from Thanksgiving 2010
"Moonstruck is a great name for this property. We were fortunate to have a full moon the first of the week and loved seeing the moon reflected in the water right in front of us"
~ "Moonstruck" guests from Thanksgiving 2010

~ "Beacon’s Watch" Thanksgiving 2010 guest
"The location is fantastic! It is a quiet neighborhood, private setting and peaceful surroundings. The beach is a short walk, only a stone’s throw away. You do not have to deal with all the people passing by your house, a major bonus! The Wildlife viewing is spectacular, the biking is great. There is so much to see and do in Corolla, and only a short drive to get to the busier part of the Outer Banks. Why would you stay anywhere else?”
~ "Hakuna Matata" Thanksgiving 2010 guest
What do our Outer Banks property management clients and vacation rental customers have to say about us?
"Thank you very much for your concern and for going the extra distance to help us. We will be down next week ... We are already very glad we signed up with your extraordinary company!"
~Duck, Sound front Homeowner
"I can't express my gratitude to you for going the extra mile! Many realtors would not contact an owner on behalf of a rental client, but you did and we are so grateful! It was a pleasure talking with you today, and I will make certain that our friends and family who also vacation in the Outer Banks know how delightful it was to deal with you."
~Tenant, 2006 Season
