Steve Keller - owner

My name is Steven Keller, owner of Cottage Comforts. In 1999 after nearly 25 years as a law enforcement officer in Maryland I retired and moved to the Outer Banks.

For the next 6 years I was a Security Manager and Director in the supply chain industry. I acquired Cottage Comforts in 2005 and want to make it the premier house watch service on the Northern Outer Banks.
