Owner Services Manager / Sr. Property Manager Avon Office
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 Homeowners serviced by our Avon Office. The role of our Property Managers, through our Owner Services Department, is to serve our Homeowners’ needs and to facilitate ongoing communication with them. Roxanne is proud that during her many years at Outer Beaches one thing has remained constant…OBR’s dedication to our Homeowners!
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.
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!
Luxury Homes Manager
Sherri grew up in Durham, NC and had vacationed every summer in the OBX for over twenty years. After graduating from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Science in Bioprocessing Science, she moved to San Francisco where she worked as a Protein Purification Scientist for Genentech (Roche) for five years. There she worked on developing novel therapies for diseases such as geographic atrophy, macular degeneration, lymphoma, and hemophilia.
After relocating back to NC to be closer to her family, she attended school on the weekends to obtain her NC Real Estate Broker’s license while still working in medicine. Shortly thereafter, she moved to the OBX full-time to join the OBR family. Sherri is the Luxury Homes Manager for OBR and works with those Owners to maintain their homes at the highest level.
When she's not at the office deep in numbers in an Excel spreadsheet, you can find her enjoying time with her two rabbits (Honey Bunny and Roger Rabbit), practicing her manicurist skills, tending to her many plants, or enjoying the sunshine on these beaches we all love so much.
