WHAT OUR OWNERS SAY:

“2019 will be the fifth season that Surf or Sound Realty has been managing our two oceanfront homes in Hatteras by the Sea. We have been impressed by the frequent communication we receive from them and the care they provide our homes. But the most impressive has been the consistent rental performance. They have averaged 25+ bookings per year in each of our homes, and this year, by early March, they had already booked 25 weeks in one home and 27 weeks in the other home. This gives us peace of mind.”
