Our Team

outerbanks

At SPM Resorts, we believe that proper and professional direction provided for a resort facility by management and overseen by homeowner associations’ boards of directors is essential to the continued success of the original plan of development, the complete enjoyment by its owners, members and guests.

An owner of one week is part owner of the entire resort. He or she is the person for whom we work.
