Lilias Morrison Harbinger Center

Can you describe the business?

The Harbinger Center is a combination of office spaces fronting US Highway 158 with two storage locations and parking paddocks. We have professional offices and suites suitable for medical, business offices, private enterprises, storefront shops, legal, engineering, and law enforcement. 

The Harbinger Center is strategically located to the Outer Banks and Currituck mainland. 

Can you talk about the decision to start your own business.

Business is an adventure and about seizing opportunities! Owning your own business makes for independence and allows for an original approach and creativity. 

Why did you choose Currituck?

South Currituck offers more space and opportunity – a wider horizon than the beach. When I purchased the property, it offered so much potential.

We have happy long-term tenants and our spaces are affordable. We cater to local business owners, local residents and a growing number of out-of-town tenants. Many of our storage unit tenants are local business owners. Our office tenants are a mix of local professional and businesses and out of town entrepreneurs. An increasing number of professional practices are establishing a base here in Harbinger, Gateway to the OBX.

What are the biggest challenges?

We are an umbrella enterprise. Our challenge is setting and maintaining standards which support the success of our business and professional tenants. The Harbinger Center’s goal is to sustain a professional presence in South Currituck. These days, we’re responding and reaching out to the new environment escalated by Covid 19.

What are the biggest rewards?

We appreciate the loyalty of our tenants, especially when they refer business to us. We are a steady business and always in demand.

What sets you apart?

The Harbinger Center has long and short-term leases. New business startups like a short lease and we encourage new startup businesses. We support our tenants and promote their interests with our marketing outreach.

What’s one piece of advice you would give to someone starting a business in Currituck County?

Get to know your local county officials, neighbors and nearby business people. Spread the word about your name, your product and your location.
