About Us

Carole Spurrier is a Maryland native and has had a place at the beach since the mid ‘70’s. Her love of Ocean City and Ocean Pines brought her back as a full time resident in 2002.  After moving back, she owned and operated The Marina Deck Restaurant in Ocean Pines until 2012. She is currently active with the National Alliance on Mental Illness, serving as NAMI Maryland’s Representative on the Lower Shore. In that capacity, she is a Family-to Family educator and leads a monthly family support group. Before retiring to the shore, Carole was an Executive Sales VP with Lucent Technologies with responsibilities for sales to the large telecommunications companies in North America. She has over 30 years experience in sales. Carole likes to say she never sold anyone anything, but that she is very good at helping a customer solve their problems. Let me help you find your place at the shore. Carole is a licensed real estate salesperson in Maryland.

John Houk is a Northern Virginia native and moved to Ocean Pines in 2015.  Since graduation from Virginia Tech with a B.S. degree in marketing, John worked in Washington DC for the next 10 years designing and implementing marketing plans for the Electronic Industries Association. After that, as a consultant to the U.S. Department of the Treasury, he helped design and implement charitable marketing campaigns for the U.S. Mint that raised millions of dollars for charities in the United States.  Before moving to the beach, John worked alongside his father for over 20 years creating United Charitable, a very successful non-profit specializing in Donor Advised Funds and Fiscal Sponsorship.  John joins the O’Hare Team with a great love of the beach and Ocean Pines. You can find him at the OP tennis club or driving down Coastal Highway in his fully restored 1967 Chevrolet Camaro convertible.  John is a licensed real estate salesperson in Maryland and Delaware.
