For nearly 50 years the rental, sales and property management firm of Joe Lamb Jr. and Associates has built its reputation on core values of trust, loyalty and dedication to community. Civic service is key to this company and its founders, Joe and Ann Lamb. From serving in local government to establishing and sponsoring local fundraisers, scholarships and charity events, it’s evident that Joe, Ann and their entire staff take these values to heart. Their focus on service is also evident in their excellent reputation with vacationers, giving families unforgettable beach memories and new traditions as well as providing homeowners a successful renting experience. These values and actions culminated recently when Joe Lamb Jr. and Associates was awarded the 2016 Small Business of the Year Award, presented by the Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce. It’s a well-deserved honor and one that indicates this business and its people will continue to fulfill its principles for many years to come.
