Meet Our People

Published November 22, 2022 by Salem Barcus

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.”
