Vickie Irby is a native of Halifax County, NC, and her family has owned property on Lake Gaston since 1962. This has allowed Vickie the opportunity to enjoy over 50 summers on its beautiful shores.
She began her career in real estate in 1997, behind the scenes so to speak, while serving as the Association’s Executive Officer for the Lake Gaston Board of REALTORS (RVLG) and as the administrator for their Multiple Listing Service (MLS). She assisted in implementing the code of ethics committee, and served as its first mediator for the RVLG Association. Her multi-tasking skills enabled her to hold these positions for over 13 years while also serving as the Parish Administrator for All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Roanoke Rapids, NC, which she retired in 2017 after 20 years. She is very involved with helping the local homeless community. Vickie is a volunteer for Room at the Inn (RATI), which is a local program for homeless women and children, and she also serves on the board of the Halifax Coordinated Assessment Group. This is a faith based program that assesses and assists people at risk of homelessness and helps meet their housing needs.
Her many friends and acquaintances will immediately tell you that her empathy for others is one of her greatest and most obvious character traits. She is a people person and has never met a stranger. Vickie is also known for her entertaining skills and enjoys helping family and friends with large events such as weddings, anniversaries, reunions, birthday parties, etc. Her greatest joy by far is watching her son grow and mature, as he studies and plays football and baseball for Roanoke Rapids High School.
Vickie has always dreamed of being a REALTOR and is very excited to finally be able to follow her dream. Give Vickie a call for any of your REALTOR needs. She is ready to be your REALTOR!!!!!
