Ocracoke Island Realty, first accredited in 2013, maintains continued membership in an elite group of nearly 550 real estate management firms across the United States as it was re-accredited an AMO firm by the Institute of Real Estate Management® (IREM).
Ocracoke Island Realty is a full-service property management and real estate sales company and, along with its partner, Village Realty Holdings, LLC, are the only two firms to have earned the AMO designation in all of Dare, Currituck, and Hyde counties of North Carolina. Additionally, the company’s executive officers, Bob Oakes, president, and Dorie Fuller, vice president, are the only two Certified Property Managers® (CPM) in the three northeastern North Carolina counties.
With the AMO accreditation, Ocracoke Island Realty’s clients may rest assured their properties are in the best possible hands, as the pillars of education, ethics and experience support the firm’s business practices.
The extensive requirements for earning the AMO designation include:
· The ability to demonstrate verifiable business stability and fiscal responsibility.
· Have an executive with a CPM in a position directing and supervising the firm’s real estate management activities.
· Have the executive CPM complete professional development education courses.
· Pledge to uphold the AMO Code of Professional Ethics.
· Hold a required amount of insurance.
· Meet specific standards, provide letters of recommendation, and be interviewed and approved by the local IREM chapter.
Dorie Fuller was quoted as saying, “We are very pleased to have successfully maintained such a prestigious designation as the Accredited Management Organization (AMO). We are the only two property managers in Dare, Currituck and Hyde counties to have the CPM title and the only company holding the AMO title in our market. Bob and I worked very hard to achieve this designation and we are committed to upholding the highest ethical standards while providing outstanding service to our guests and owners.”
