Roxanne Staylor

Owner Services Manager

Roxanne grew up in Western Maryland, spending her last six years there, in Frostburg…and yes, winters there are as cold as it sounds! Now, she and her husband, Bill relish the peacefulness and beauty of the Island. Residents of Avon since 1999, they especially enjoy their time with their family which includes five beautiful grandchildren. A family favorite is a beach day with hot dogs and “castle” cake…lots of fun!

Since 2000, Roxanne has worked in various capacities at OBR. In 2019, she was given the opportunity to manage the Owner Services Department. A licensed NC Real Estate Broker, her responsibilities include working with the Property Managers and Luxury Homes Manager who serve our Homeowners. Together with our Property Recruiter, Buck Meier, the Property Managers and Luxury Homes Manager works with our newest Homeowners to ensure a smooth onboarding process. Once acclimated to the OBR Program, we strive for excellent communication with the Homeowner. We value our Homeowners’ business and want the OBR experience in home ownership to be one that is mutually beneficial, working with our Owners to understand how to best meet their needs and individual goals, while maximizing rental income for them. Our goal is to set the bar for Owner communication on Hatteras Island. Roxanne is proud that during her many years at Outer Beaches one thing has remained constant…OBR’s dedication to our Homeowners!

Linda Blackwell

Property Manager Waves Office

Linda is originally from Hopewell, VA and grew up spending every summer vacation here at the Outer Banks with her family. Linda always knew she wanted to move to Hatteras Island one day, and then it finally happened in 2005. She had spent 30 years in the chemical industry in the field of sales and customer service. Linda joined Outer Beaches Realty in 2008, became a licensed NC Real Estate Broker and spent the next nine years in the Guest Services Department, during which time she was promoted to the role of Guest Services Manager. In 2017, Linda made her way to the Waves Office to become the Property Manager. Linda is responsible for direct communication with OBR Homeowners in Rodanthe, Waves and Salvo.

When asked why an Owner should choose Outer Beaches to manage their home, Linda says it’s because we care about our Owners and treat them like family. We go the extra mile to make sure their homes receive the best care on the Island. Linda loves her job and loves being part of the Outer Beaches Family! Her favorite thing to do is driving her Jeep on the beach!

Lori Vander Clay

Property Manager Avon Office

Lori grew up in West Michigan and vacationed on Hatteras Island for more than a decade. She immediately fell in love and planned to one day move from the “lake effect snow belt of Michigan” and become a permanent resident of Hatteras Island. In October 2019 the dream became a reality and the move was made with her husband, Steve, and their pets.

Before relocating to Hatteras Island, Lori worked in local government, serving as the City Clerk for the City of Allegan and most recently the City of New Buffalo. Working in those fast-paced environments for almost 20 years lends very well to Lori’s position as the Property Manager for the Avon Office. Lori is responsible for direct communication with OBR Homeowners in Avon.

Lori loves to walk on the beach, especially at Pea Island, and look for treasures. She is an avid plant person and is always on the lookout for hostas. Lori and her husband plan on making Avon their forever home!

Property Manager Hatteras Office

They are excited to join the amazing community here. As the Property Manager for the Hatteras Office, Katie is responsible for direct communication with OBR Homeowners in Buxton, Frisco and Hatteras. Katie is a licensed NC Real Estate Broker.

For most of her professional career, Katie has managed projects for nonprofit organizations based in Wisconsin, New Mexico, New York City and abroad. Before moving to Hatteras, she most recently spent five years working with Doctors Without Borders in various African and Asian countries, managing the non-medical components of field projects in extremely remote areas.
