About Us

Tidal Realty was created by Dan Lester in September of 2013. Dan saw the advantages that buyers and sellers received when they worked with smaller, hands on Real Estate companies when dealing with one of the largest transactions most people make.

This whole concept is especially true in the destination area of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The area has a large percentage of second homes and vacation rental investment homes. Transactions differ due to remote buyers and sellers. It is important for an agent to understand all the variables that are involved with Vacation Rentals.

Dan Lester, broker/owner of Tidal Realty brings 13 years of knowledge that benefits all that he works with. In 2004 until the inception of Tidal Realty, Dan created and managed a Real Estate Company that had a large focus on the management of Outer Banks vacation rental homes. The knowledge that was gained from that venture has served many who bought and sold investment properties.

Understanding all aspects of Outer Banks Real Estate enables Dan to provide a complete picture of Real Estate investing. In addition to the experience, Dan also holds the coveted GRI (Graduate of the Real Estate Institute) , BPOR (Broker Price Opinion Resource), RRS (Recreation and Resort Specialists) and SFR (Short Sale, Foreclosure Resource) designations. This understanding of Real Estate on the Outer Banks is unique and valuable to those seeking sound advice, whether buying or selling Real Estate.
