Last week Mike Harrington, former CEO at Resort Realty of the Outer Banks, resigned from Resort Realty and acquired Topsail Realty in Topsail, North Carolina.
Topsail Realty currently manages approximately 170 rental properties and was previously owned and operated by Randy Leesburg. The 40 year old company was founded by Leesburg’s father, and Randy Leesburg took over in 1985.
Mike Harrington worked with Stewart Couch at Hatteras Realty before joining Resort Realty of the Outer Banks in 2007. At Resort Realty he oversaw over 600 vacation rental homes and led daily operations and strategic growth initiatives for the company. Harrington currently serves as the President of the North Carolina Vacation Rental Managers Association (NCVRMA), sits on the Board of Directors as Treasurer for the national Vacation Rental Managers Association (VRMA), and is a member of East Carolina’s University’s School of Hospitality’s Advisory Board.
Leesburg will continue to assist in operations and will begin transitioning towards retirement.
