Virginia Davis, Senior Association Manager

Meet Our People

Senior Association Manager Virginia Davis is a treasure to our Association Management division!

Born and raised in western North Carolina, Virginia moved to the Triangle area during her college years when she transferred from Appalachian State University to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She graduated from UNC in 1986 with a degree in journalism and worked in several different industries before entering the real estate world.

In 2004 Virginia began her career here at York, starting out in our Commercial Management division but later shifting to Association Management. Her problem-solving skills have come in handy over the years and she supports the entire team with her experience and understanding. Virginia says she enjoys the opportunity to teach others what she’s learned during her nearly 20-year tenure.

Over the years Virginia has managed to maintain a broad portfolio of properties (condominiums, townhomes, and neighborhood developments) while continuing to stay abreast of the latest laws and regulations. She joined the Community Association Institute in 2007 and served on the Legislative Action Committee from 2010 – 2022. In 2015 she received her Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation, the highest association manager recognition nationwide.

Outside of the office, Virginia puts a priority on her family, regularly traveling to western North Carolina to look after her mother. She is also an animal lover and has two dogs and one cat at home. She tells us she would love to rescue more critters in the future.

We are extremely proud of all that Virginia has accomplished and look forward to her NEXT 20 years at York!

How To Keep Your Commercial Building Running Efficiently

Business and building owners know how important it is to keep a commercial building running smoothly. From plumbing and electrical systems to HVAC and roofing, there are many components that require regular maintenance and upkeep. One of the best ways to ensure your building is always in top condition is to hire a commercial building maintenance company and invest in a monthly maintenance routine. Here are just a few of the many reasons why this is such a smart investment.

  • Regular maintenance saves you money in the long run. When you invest in a monthly maintenance routine, you are able to catch problems early on before they become major issues. This means you will spend less money on emergency repairs and replacements down the line. Plus, a well-maintained building is more energy-efficient, which can save you money on utility bills over time.
  • A professional maintenance company offers expertise and experience. Trying to maintain your commercial building on your own can be a daunting task. A professional maintenance company, on the other hand, has the expertise and experience necessary to keep your building in top condition. They can identify potential issues before they become major problems and provide high-quality repairs and replacements as needed.
  • Regular maintenance ensures the safety of your building and its occupants. From backflow preventer testing to electrical inspections, regular maintenance helps ensure the safety of your building and its occupants. When you invest in a monthly maintenance routine, you can rest easy knowing your building is up to code and potential hazards are being addressed promptly.
  • On-call emergency services provide peace of mind. No matter how well-maintained your building is, emergencies can still happen. This is why it is so important to have access to on-call emergency services. With a commercial building maintenance company, you will have peace of mind knowing help is just a phone call away, 24/7.
  • Preferred client scheduling to ensure your building is always a top priority. Here at York, when you invest in a monthly maintenance routine, you become a preferred client of the maintenance division. This means your building will always be a top priority, and you will receive the highest level of service and attention.

In summary, investing in a monthly maintenance routine with a commercial building maintenance company is a smart choice for any business owner. From saving money to ensuring safety and peace of mind, the benefits are clear. Contact us today to learn more about our comprehensive maintenance services and how we can help keep your building in top condition.

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!

Meet Our People

North Carolina native Stuart Fuller is a treasure to our York Maintenance team.

Born in Henderson, Stuart’s family lived in Benson and Louisburg before making Raleigh their home. He graduated from Millbrook High School in 1982.

Stuart worked with another local real estate firm for almost two decades before joining York Maintenance. He came to our team with a wealth of knowledge and expertise, and now serves as the head locksmith of the Maintenance division. Stuart takes joy in the variety of his daily workload. He gives his full self to his work which his team members can attest to.

When Stuart isn’t rekeying or repairing locks, you can find him at home with his wife of 31 years, Jackie Fuller. They have two sons together, Johnny and Nicholas.

Stuart also loves deep sea fishing. His catches include a 29lb Almaco Jack, 26lb King Mackerel, and a 21lb Cobia, but one of his favorite catches was a Triggerfish – a tender white fish perfect for grilling.

The family atmosphere and good relationships are just a few things that Stuart says he appreciates most about working with York. When asked about a life motto, Stuart said that honesty is very important and to “always treat people the way you want to be treated.”

Thank you, Stuart, for your years of commitment and dedication to our clients and the York Maintenance family.

Meet Our People

Marketing Specialist, Vicky Eaton, is a Raleigh native with a degree in Journalism & Mass Communication from North Carolina A&T State University.

After graduating from A&T, she spent the next year and a half as a Hostess/Server at the former 18 Seaboard on Peace Street. It was there, while waiting on a table for one of our employees, that Vicky was (unknowingly) earmarked as someone who had exactly the type of personality we were looking for to fill a position within our Marketing department.

As it turned out, she was interested in the opportunity and a few weeks later, she was onboarded as an assistant to our marketing team. Fast-forward 3 years and Vicky is now a Marketing Specialist supporting her own team of four commercial brokers in our office. She is a North Carolina Notary Public and is responsible for our internal company newsletter. Vicky is also a board member for the Hillsborough Street Community Service Corporation (HSCSC) and Concept Factory.

If you ask her, Vicky will tell you that her passion in life is media and story-telling. She is a photographer, videographer, and graphic designer. She volunteers her time doing videography for Victorious Praise Fellowship Church in Durham. Vicky loves her family – Mom and two brothers (one of them is her twin) – and spends as much time as she can traveling, visiting extended family and friends, shopping, and dining her way through the City of Oaks. As she likes to say, “Life is too short for bland food.”

When asked about her job, Vicky says, “In addition to the work-life balance and amazing, vibrant coworkers, my favorite part of the job is the creative problem-solving element. I enjoy seeing puzzle pieces become a work of art. I enjoy helping others bring things to life and it is a privilege to do so with such an amazing team of people surrounding me daily. My team of brokers bring a wealth of knowledge, experience, and connections to the table which makes supporting and learning from them all the more valuable and intriguing.”
