So what might be a once in a lifetime chance, my son and daughter, both in Atlanta, have given me a wonderful birthday present - they have both managed to take vacation from their busy careers at the same time and spend a week with me and Mrs. Bluefish at OBX. We discovered OBX after they were grown and gone and we've been trying to do this for years, but could never find a week that worked for everyone. The date is only 3 weeks out and the house requests among the group resulted in a limited choice. We narrowed it down to two - one with Hatteras Realty and the other with Outer Beaches. We decided to go with Hatteras Realty, but the turn day was Saturday and we needed a Sunday turn day. We called and asked if the turn day could be changed, and if not, could we book an extra day at the end of the week. The answer was "yes" but they would need to okay the request with the owners. Understandable. They said they would call us back. We explained there was a bit of urgency because if they couldn't accommodate our request, there was another house available and we didn't want to lose it waiting on their response. No problem, they would check and call us back. They never called. We called back and left a message, still no return call. So, this morning we booked through Outer Beaches. My daughter said she prefers the Outer Beaches home anyway, so all is fine. Still, I'm disappointed in the lack of attention by Hatteras Realty. We've always gotten good service through them and I hope this is not a sign of a larger problem. Looking forward to being back in Hatteras in a few weeks! It's been too long!
