“North Carolina’s coastal areas continue to see increased interest, and the Outer Banks is no exception,” Philip White, president and CEO of Sotheby’s International Realty, said in a statement. “Landmark Sotheby’s International Realty’s strategic expansion into a well-loved market will enable them even more to exceed the wants and needs of their clients. I very much look forward to supporting their continued growth in the region and the company’s new location will be an excellent addition to our ever expanding global network.”

Landmark Sotheby’s International Realty CEO Daniel Malechuk told Inman that moving to the Outer Banks is a long-standing goal to serve coastal markets in the region.

“It has long been a vision for Landmark Sotheby’s International Realty to be able to serve clients from the Virginia border towns to the South Carolina border along the entire North Carolina coast,” Malechuk said on a call. “We are very pleased to now be able to occupy a portion of this geographic location where previously no Sotheby’s International Realty agents were available to work with this discerning clientele that we work with. For us, this is a major milestone in our history as we now have the opportunity to serve an elite clientele across the North Carolina coast.”

“I am delighted to be able to offer my clients the global recognition, reach and exposure that the Sotheby’s International Realty brand provides,” McLay said in a statement. “We will be able to deliver a personalized concierge service that exceeds our clients’ expectations with the strongest and most recognized real estate brand in the world.”
