About Us


You might say that The M & M Team began in 1988 when I began my Real Estate Career. My husband, Michael, and I moved to the Outer Banks to join his parents in the family restaurant business. A career change is an understatement.  We sold our house in Churchland and quit very good jobs at Newport News Shipbuilding and started a life changing event.

I had always been interested in becoming a REALTOR, so Michael encouraged me to get my license and fulfill my dream. Within 3 years I was NO. 2 in sales which motivated me even more to be the best. I knew I was born to be a REALTOR.  I wanted to help make people’s dreams come true and make their buying and selling experience a pleasant one.

There are several areas in which we operate a step or two apart from other OBX REALTORS. Read on to learn more about why we are your prime choice for Outer Banks, NC REALTORS.

It is easy to see why Mike and Madonna VanCuren have continued to remain 2 of the top selling realtors at OBX. I purchased my condo from them over 20 years ago and without hesitation enlisted their help when life changes and I needed to sell my unit this spring. As a team, they have worked together for 19 years. They are very knowledgeable of the local market and current trends. I appreciate their sound advice based on 40 years of combined experience. What a team!! They never left any of my questions unanswered and were always available to answer calls or emails promptly. Their excellent advice and integrity allowed me to make informed decisions concerning the sale of my unit. They made the entire process so easy for me and my unit sold quickly when other units were still left in the complex. 2 THUMBS UP for the "M and M" team. Thanks, guys. You are the BEST!!!

We have used Madonna for two successful transactions and we are ready to list another property with her. We recently purchased a property that had some issues and Madonna was with us every step offering guidance and assistance. With her help, we were able to resolve all of the issues and purchase a new home. Her knowledge and experience makes the whole process much easier. We cannot recommend her enough. Whether buying or selling, you can count on Madonna to get the job done!
— Warren Birdsong
I have used Madonna for the purchase and sale of houses, along with purchase of a lot. I know of no realtor that knows more about the market than she does, works any harder or is anymore responsive, whether I call her or email her. She is all about customer service keeping you informed through the sales or purchase process. If you need a recommendation for a repairman, she has a trusted list and I have found them to be worthy of her recommendation in every instance. You will not be disappointed that you chose Madonna as your realtor.

I have known the M&M team for the past 15 years. My brother and I worked with Madonna to purchase our first property in the Outer Banks. She was a pleasure to work with then and now, as we are currently relying on her expertise once again!
— Leonard Burke
Madonna & Michael are courteous, intelligent, trustworthy and extremely HARD WORKERS. Because of them, there were no issues in selling our condo. If we can pull off moving to the OBX when retirement comes, it will be Madonna & Michael that we will be relying on for our next residence!!!
— Wayne and Patricia Rowland
Madonna has been our agent when buying 2 homes and selling 1 here on the Outer Banks. We first met her in 1998 while looking for our first vacation home and we were so impressed with her professionalism. She was always available to speak with us, even though she was busy with other clients. She has bent over backwards to get deals closed for us. Hopefully when we sell or buy again, she will still be available. She's the best and we consider her a friend.
— Elizabeth Michael
We have bought and sold several homes and the VanCurens are the best realtors we've worked with by far. Outstanding! You want a realtor who can market your home, produce showings, communicate with you throughout the process and who can negotiate and close the sale. They check all the boxes. They came highly recommended to us and we would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone else. I would bet that no other realtor knows the Outer Banks like they do. They are the perfect definition of realty professionals. If we had to rate them on a 1 to 10 scale, we would rate them 11. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, do yourself a favor and go with the M & M team. You won't regret it.

We have been fortunate enough to have known Madonna Vancuren for years and have always gotten excellent advice on buying, selling and timing of each over the twenty years. Madonna will let you know if you are on tract or not, and she has good reasons for the strategies she suggests; she is not a "yes" man, she will tell you her professional opinion based on her experience of what the market will bear. We were very pleased with her selling of our rental home a few years ago; it sold very quickly and she was able to handle the multiple bids in a most just way; we always run our real estate ideas by her before we do anything. She and her husband Michael, are valuable assets that you can count on to give in-real-time, an unvarnished understanding of the current real estate market. She is extremely dedicated to her clients and has thousands of excellent vendor referrals, which can help you save time and money if you are new to the area or do not know anyone to provide you a service. You can never have too many solid professionals who can truly help you, and with the Vancuren Team, you will be in great hands for years to come!

Madonna and Michael are excellent, professional realtors. When you hear the term “above and beyond”, that is this team. They are not only smart and reliable realtors who are always available for you, but they became our friends. The good news is Madonna sold our house, but the bad news is we are in Pittsburgh and we will miss her.
— Carol and Rod Gates
I have worked with Madonna & Michael several times & will do so again should a need arise. They are the most ethical realtors it has been my pleasure to work with. They are extremely hard working & always available when you need them. Having been a realtor for many years I know good ones when I encounter them.
