Brooke is our resident Excel expert and you can frequently find her glued to her desk, creating spreadsheets for hours on end. Brooke’s real love in life is her rockin’ family: husband, kid #1, kid #2, fish, dog, cat, and cat.

Amy joined York Properties in 2010 and has over 12 years of experience in commercial real estate.  She began her career with Highwoods Properties and has held positions in accounting, financial analysis, and property management.  Though she is a jack-of-all-trades type, Amy specializes in retail property management and has been a licensed North Carolina real estate broker since 2002.  She is extremely customer service oriented and understands the importance of communication with both her owners and the tenants.

 

She has a husband, elementary school-aged twins and a Labrador puppy who keep her on the run (we’re still trying to figure out which of those is most challenging), and she can often be found on the tennis court in her “free” time.

 

Amy attended Peace College and graduated from NC State University with a degree in Business Management/Finance.  She is actively involved in the community and is currently an Executive Board Member for ReEntry, Inc., serving as Treasurer.
