Maybe it's winding your way through the sand dunes or tidal marshes that line out coast. Or taking in the breathtaking blues and greens of the Atlantic Ocean with sand between your toes. Or casting a line from a dock. No matter how you define "escape," this is the place to do it. It's time.

Meet Sara

Sara is the best. We have used many realtors over the years and by far Sara surpassed our expectations. She is very knowledgeable which was important since we are new to the area, she was on top of everything right thru and after the sale.


Kitty Hawk

Sara did a phenomenal job selling our home for us! She was completely professional, honest, and helpful throughout the process, and was very knowledgeable about the current real estate market in our area.


Kill Devil Hills

We enjoyed working with Sara and would recommend her to anyone. She was wonderful to work with, well-informed on the Outer Banks area, and always available to answer all of our questions. Sara made the process of purchasing our home an enjoyable experience!


Kill Devil Hills

It would not be an exaggeration to say that Sara Small is a combination of an angel, a rock star, and a real estate goddess. She is every person's real estate dream agent.


Kitty Hawk

Sara was fabulous from the moment we met her. We spoke with a few agents about different properties and Sara was the most knowledgeable and responsive. She worked us through a very difficult multiple offer situation and 1031 Tax Exchange to land the home of our dreams!
