Sterling Webb at Sterling Springs by any other name is still Sterling Webb at Sterling Springs

And add Wahoo Vacation Club, and Skytrek Ziplines to Sterling Springs and Overlook Resort to Mr. Webb's list of aliases.

There's no way to name them all because, no doubt, there are many names that Sterling Webb has used in order to get people to do business with him.

A new one has popped up:  Eco Summit Development Group, LLC.  Well, that is the name in a magazine article, anyway.  A full-page ad in Knox Life promotes Sterling Webb as the President of Eco Summit Development Group, LLC.  Here's a link and a quote:
Webb says the mortgage crisis exposed flaws in Sevier County's investment properties.

In this slick 'special advertisement' is also where Sterling declares himself as Eco Summit president.  It's really a cool online publication; use the Zoom tool to read every word written about Sterling being a jewel of the Smokies.

And let's just hope and pray that the Bullock Group of Knoxville got their money.  You can check out the REALTORs ad for The Green Mountain Cabin here:

Here's what i was able to find out about the name of Sterling's new LLC, according to what is published in the magazine ad:

Eco Summit Development Group LLC

Dear State Department ~

In September 2010, Sterling Webb, d/b/a Eco Summit Development Group LLC advertised rental properties for sale in a Knoxville online magazine.

Could you please verify that Eco Summit Development Group LLC is a legitimate Tennessee limited liability company?

This function of your website seems to be unavailable.  So, i thank you, in advance, for your time to answer my question.

I apologize for our website being down at this time.  I have reported the issue to the appropriate staff.
We do have a record of Eco Summit Development, LLC, control #635130 (listed without 'Group").  Their articles of organization were filed on 07/08/10 and their address is listed as 1081 Towering Oaks Dr, Sevierville, Tn 37876.  Their registered agent is currently listed as United States Corporation Agents, Inc, 3903 Volunteer Dr, Suite #200, Chattanooga, Tn 37416.
If I can be of further assistance, please contact me at

Best wishes,
Angie Tatum, Supervisor

Isn't it funny how that address, 1081 Towering Oaks Drive, is the address he uses for his Wahoo game.

As for Eco Summit Development Group, LLC vs Eco Summit Development, LLC vs Eco Summit ~ well ~ how the man keeps up with it all, i don't know... anyone with that much going on could easily make that mistake.

In the meantime, people are still hurting from their association with the stinging nettle* known as Sterling Webb:

I invested my entire life savings into a cabin in sterling springs only to have it go belly up.
Questionable situations,and hollow promises is all i ever experienced.
I am not the only one who has been a victim of sterling springs, There have been several and our stories are pretty much the same.

On Sunday, October 18th, Debbie in West Virginia, in regards to the Wahoo Vacation Club said
I have owned this for over a year and have yet to rent a condo for the price listed on my contract. Very unhappy. There is no management personnel to talk to, and no one to complain to, only the service personnel, whom I might add have been very helpful, but they have no authority to make anything right.

Hey.  You all be careful out there.  If you stumbled on this blog because you are checking on Sterling Webb before you invest money with him, please investigate some of the other posts and comments here so you'll at least know what you're getting yourself into...

*Okay, i know that a stinging nettle has medicinal properties when used to make a tea ~ and therefore is not a good analogy for the pain that can be inflicted by Sterling Webb..

UPDATE:  It's amazing that Sterling was able to pull himself together to set up his new LLC, considering all the turmoil he was enduring.  This is according to the comments for June and July 2010 at
