Village Realty Holdings, LLC, Ocracoke Island Realty, first accredited in 2013, and Carolina Beach Realty have achieved re-accreditation of the Accredited Management Organization (AMO). All three maintain continued membership in a group of nearly 550 real estate management firms across the United States as they were re-accredited AMO firms by the Institute of Real Estate Management® (IREM).

Village Realty acquired Ocracoke Island Realty in 2005 and Carolina Beach Realty in 2017. Village Realty and Ocracoke Island Realty are full-service property management and real estate sales companies and are the only two firms to have earned the AMO designation in all of Dare, Currituck and Hyde counties. Carolina Beach Realty provides property management services in Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. Carolina Beach is the only property management company with the AMO designation along the southern coast of North Carolina. Each company’s executive officers, president Bob Oakes and vice president Dorie Fuller, are the only two Certified Property Managers® (CPM) in the three northeastern North Carolina counties in which Village Realty does business.
