Meet Our People

From the town of Bunn, where she lives, to the Oak City and beyond, our Corporate Accountant, Rachel Vorys, is a shining leader. Born just south of Buffalo, NY, Rachel moved to Raleigh, NC, with her family at the age of 6 and has stayed near the Triangle area ever since.

Rachel and her husband of 21 years, Tom, live with their two children – Thomas (22) and Lily (18) – and one granddaughter – Maelynn (3). On any given weekend, you can find Rachel wandering around Chris’ Green House, finding new plants to put in her garden, and perusing the treasures at SuzAnna’s Antiques in Rolesville. She enjoys local eats with her family at the Farmer’s Kitchen or Levi’s Soul Café, but her favorite thing to do is go to Clifton Pond to hike, meditate, or paddle board around the ponds and streams.

Before joining York, Rachel had experience with bookkeeping and accounts payables and receivables for a local real estate firm. She says that what feels like 10 minutes has now become 10 years at York. During that time, Rachel has had many different titles and has become the go-to person for all accounting needs. We consider her the “fixer of things” and “sorter-outer of messes.”

In 2022, Rachel was selected to participate in Leadership Raleigh, a program designed to prepare and connect community leaders and business professionals in the Triangle. As part of the Leadership Raleigh program, she and a group of peers are currently working with the non-profit SAFEchild, whose mission and purpose is to end abuse and neglect for children and families.

While Rachel might not have just one saying or motto, when you chat with her, you are bound to hear something that will make your day brighter. Her pleasant and joyous personality brings smiles and laughs to all the York team.

Thank you, Rachel, for all you do! We are so proud to call you our own!

Two Roosters Ice Cream Opens New Location in Wake Forest

Wake Forest is in for a (frozen) treat!

Two Roosters Ice Cream will open their fifth location in the Triangle at The Factory Sports Complex (former Slices & Ices space) early this summer. Located at 1839 S. Main Street, Wake Forest.

If you can’t wait until summer, we hear you. Check out Two Roosters’ “Brownie Series” of ice creams at any of the other Triangle locations right now! Our flavor recommendation is Nutella Brownie.

Two Roosters Ice Cream is a family-owned business that originated from Sunday gatherings at the owners’ grandmother’s piedmont farmhouse in North Carolina. The family would get together on Sundays each summer to rest, share stories, and hand-churn ice cream. What was once a family tradition has now blossomed into the successful business Two Roosters Ice Cream is today.

York is pleased to provide property management and leasing services at The Factory. Broker James Troxler represented the Landlord in the transaction.
