    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    Throughout my years as a Property Manager & Sales Agent on the Outer Banks, the scope of service that I provide to my clients has changed and remains ever evolving. In large part, the majority of my clients are investors or multi homeowners living states away. When I first start working with a buyer, we "dig deep" to determine the real goals and expectations of owning a property on the Outer Banks. Is this purchase your family's dream home? Does it need to have a specific layout for your family's needs? Or is this purchase based completely on numbers & ROI (Return on investment)? Is your primary goal to have the highest/best return regardless if the amenities and location differ from what you personally prefer? If ROI is the primary goal, I help buyers understand data, projections, the value of under performers and expenses that are all associated with owning rental property on our beaches. After we determine the goal, and sometimes it shifts during the process, I work hard to find homes that best fit my client's needs. Aside from sales & property management, I do an incredible amount of consulting work with existing property owners that have their homes listed with traditional property management firms. Often owners dont want to sell (yet) but simply want to increase revenue and realize their home's fullest potential in turn making their home more valuable. My consulting duties include rate management. I heavily evaluate/manipulate rates and help owners understand the process of setting and monitoring nightly/daily rates (based on yield management). I make simple and inexpensive upgrades to the property in order to set their home apart from the rest. The results of this service is seen in bookings in the off season when we historically see a lower demand and excess inventory. I help facilitate marketing changes on their current rental listings and make sure their properties are getting maximum exposure. I advise on ever changing marketing trends that should be being utilized. We work to get feedback from past guests and use that data to make necessary changes. I help hire and manage local vendors for small and large projects. Anyone that has hired vendors on the beach knows that is a challenge in itself. These indepth services go beyond the scope of service provided by a traditional sales/management firm but for an owner (new or long time) to maximize their return, all the bases have to be covered. The best call I can receive is from a client telling me that they are seeing a high enough return on house #1, that they are ready for #2! I love when I can sell my clients property for more than what the market dictates because of simple changes that we made. Regardless if I am in "Sales mode" or "Property Management Mode," my goal remains the same. I want my client to make the most money (sometimes that is realizing higher rental income and sometimes it is selling their home for more than they expected) and provide a higher level of service than what they anticipated. Because of my background and local contacts, I remain involved in client's projects long after the transaction takes place. Though I love working with investment properties, helping families find forever homes is a top priority.

    When I am not working, I am very involved with Veteran Charities in our area. I am a huge supporter of the Wounded Warrior in Action Foundation (https://wwiaf.org). This foundation heals our Nation's Purple Heart recipients through the great outdoors. Partnering with our local small businesses and hosting the Annual OBX Waterfowl Hunt is a highlight for me each year.

    My husband and I were both raised in Currituck County and have strong roots here. We are blessed to raise our two young boys in a wonderful community that we both love so much. My husband and I have owned a Septic and heavy equipment company for nearly 20 years. Sparks Septic & Tractor Service serves both Dare & Currituck County.

    We are so pleased with Brook Sparks attention to detail and excellent marketing of our property. She made us feel as if we were her only clients with answers to any and all questions. She walked us all the way through closing at our full price. We highly recommend Brook to anyone!

    If you are looking for a realtor search no further than Brook Sparks. She is one of the best in the business in my opinion. She takes the time to thoroughly understand your needs as a customer and then goes out of her way to make sure they are met and exceeded. She is hands on throughout the whole process and keeps you informed every step of the way. You never have to wonder what the status of anything is. And if for any reason something has to change, Brook will take the time to explain it to you until you understand it, then she manages through the change for you. While Brook maintains a large portfolio of houses, she always makes you feel like yours is the only one. She's available any time you need her and she sticks with you not just through the close of the deal, but long afterwards as well to ensure your satisfaction. She takes pride in her work and loves her clients, and they/we love her in return it. So glad to have Brook represent me throughout my home sale and I wouldn't hesitate for one second to recommend her to anyone.

    Brook was amazing to work with! She was always available and would stop what she was doing to answer any questions we had or show us a property. She was very knowledgeable about the whole home buying process from start to finish. Brook is easy to talk to and is very outgoing and tenacious! I would highly recommend her!

    Brook is the best there is on the beach! She was great to work with, always on top of things! She knows what she is talking about and makes the home buying process so smooth. I was a first time buyer and she has taught me and guided me through the process the whole way through! I would 100% recommend Brook and I will use her again when I buy! I love you Brook, you're the best!

    Brook was a delight to work with. She was very responsive to our sometimes "over the top" needs. She is very fair and seems willing to go the route to keep everyone involved in the loop and happy (well as happy as you can with that many folks involved). I would use her again.

    I have both sold a house with Brook, and now purchased a property with her and she is just a fantastic agent! She is by far the most responsive agent we have ever used, has an amazing knowledge of the area, and will give you her honest feedback on conditions and pricing. We absolutely plan to keep working with Brook in the future!

    Brook was exceptionally diligent and efficient. She followed up on every question I had quickly and efficiently. She did a good job of representing my wishes to the buyers agent and getting agreement on all negotiable and non-negotiable aspects of the sale. Her advice was clear, succinct and informative. She was honest about what I could and could not have. She behaved as an experienced first class agent. Good job Brook.

    No other words!! Brook is AMAZING. She knows everything about closing a real estate deal seamlessly! She has gone out of her way to be available in person and many times on the phone to ease our concerns and answer any questions. She helped us navigate a long distance purchase with a out of town seller and it was easy. Now she is helping us with renovation tips, repairmen and other vendors to make our new beach rental a success! Love you on our team, Brook!

    Brook has a wonderful personality as selling agent. She willingly showed us all the houses we wanted to see "our list" but none of them met our criteria. She actually listened to what we were looking for and pointed us in the right direction. We found what we wanted. Brook always was available for our requests and never hesitated. Her bubbly persona and happy demeanor made our experience the best. I did not know her before but I can honestly say I have found a kindred spirit.

    I can't say enough about Brook!! I met her when she was my rental manager. So when we were going to sell our home I knew who I was going to contact. She is very knowledgeable with the area, is so personable and her level of professionalism makes for a trifecta for getting your home sold!! I never had to follow-up with anything..I heard from her promptly with every step of the process.

    Brook is amazing! The transaction couldn't have been more flawless. Her professionalism, dedication and attention to detail are second to none. Brook went above and beyond to help us. As out of town buyers who couldn't make it to town until the day of closing, her local knowledge was priceless. Whether you are buying or selling, give Brook a call. You will be glad that you did!

    If you want to buy, sell, or rent Brook is who you want to use. After working in realestate on the OBX in some way shape or form for over 12 years she has the knowledge of the market better than anyone I have met. For me alone she has handled a short term rental, a long term rental, a sale, and soon a purchase. She is responsive and professional and most of all a "go getter". I highly recommend her!

    Brook is the epitome of professionalism and expertise. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and easy (& fun) to work with. She handled all aspects of our sale--listing, showing, and closing--in an efficient and effective manner. We cannot recommend her highly enough, and have absolutely no reservations about working with her in the future.

    How To Create An Inviting Laundry Room

    We can all agree that doing laundry is probably not the way you want to spend the day off. This disdain may even make your laundry room one of your least favorite rooms in your house. However, just because laundry can be an arduous task doesn't mean your laundry room has to be an unwelcoming, dark space full of clutter. In fact, a well-organized space can actually make you feel more focused and productive. A bright, clean space can even put you in a better headspace to complete your least favori...

    Introducing A New Pet To Your Pet Household

    The joys of pet ownership are bountiful and endless. Between cute kitten "biscuits" and evening walks with man's best friend, many homeowners don't feel their family is complete until bringing a pet into the home. In fact, according to the 2021-2022 National Pet Owners Survey, 70% of American households own at least one pet. At roughly 69 million families with a dog and 45 million families with a cat, it goes without saying that we love our fur kids—and if one pet makes for a happy house, than 2...
