Your OBX Connection - Great Escapes Realty

With years of experience helping local buyers and sellers just like yourself, Mike Bishal knows how to locate the finest properties that match up for you and negotiate for you the best deals. It's my job to know about the latest market conditions, government regulations, and upcoming developments — so that you don't have to.


As your Buyer's Representative, I can make the process of house hunting much easier and more efficient than if you did it all yourself. I can help you get financing, guide you to local beach side, sound side (and everything in between) homes, help you determine your budget, and prioritize a list of essential features that you need in your Outer Banks Property. I'll save you valuable time by finding the properties that best suit your requirements, and will show you only the most promising ones.

If it is a Rental Investment Home that you plan to offset expenses by renting to weekly vacationers I can help you find the best cash flowing ones in your price point. If it will be a 2nd Home decision that you will use for yourself and family then that means it is more about a location and features that "speaks" to you. Perhaps you are relocating to the wonderful Outer Banks and will live here all year round. That may mean you want to be sure you are in a community near conveniences and services that are important to you. I can help target the right one with and for you. 

Once you've found a place that catches your eye, we'll look at comparable properties in the area to help determine a purchase offer. Then I'll negotiate on your behalf with the seller side to make sure you get the most favorable terms.

It's our job to look after your best interests, and we will do so at no cost to you as a buyer, due to the cooperative nature of the MLS.

If you're ready to start on your way to a beach house, you can search real estate listings now. You can also refer to our Buyer's Guide for helpful tools and buying advice. To start working with an agent right away, please contact us.


Selling a house on your own can be an overwhelming task. There's advertising to plan and budget for, open houses and private showings to arrange, purchase offers to negotiate, contract contingencies to worry about, and complicated paperwork to fill out. Make it easy on yourself by putting your home in the hands of seasoned professionals. I have extensive experience marketing properties and showing them to their best advantage.

First, I'll perform a comparable market analysis to determine the most appropriate price for your home. Then we'll provide home staging advice and suggest landscaping changes that will help draw buyers in. We'll advertise your home through a variety of methods, including online and the MLS® listing tool. We may even showcase your home as part of our site's Featured Listings.

When it comes to negotiating a purchase offer, we'll make sure that you get the best price the market will allow. I'll help you understand contract contingencies and details of the closing process, in addition to handling all the paperwork for you. Essentially, I'm here to represent you throughout the entire selling process, and to make sure that your real estate transaction is a positive and profitable experience.
