Strong leaders such as Vicki Sweeney, Right at Home Realty’s new Branch Manager for Durham, leverage their expertise and experience to ensure agents receive exceptional opportunities and home buyers and sellers receive exceptional service.
True to its legacy since 2004, Right at Home Realty continues to grow, maintaining its position as the #1 independent real estate brokerage in Canada. One significant point of differentiation for Right at Home Realty is that the brokerage is corporately run by an accomplished Board of Directors and leadership team.
Get to Know Vicki
Vicki Sweeney is a mom of two girls Sarah (20) and Shannon (16) and auntie to Kaitlyn (24) and Kristyn (22). Vicki was first licensed in 2011 and after her first year selling, she was awarded the Rookie of the Year Award, a high honour in the brokerage where she worked at. Around 2015, Vicki saw an opportunity to get involved with organized real estate through her local board, the Durham Region Association of Realtors®. Her work with committees would allow her to make a difference in both her community and the industry.
In 2016, she ran for a position on the Board of Directors and has continued to serve. One of Vicki’s proudest achievements was having the opportunity to chair the Charity Action Committee for a few years. Over the years, the Committee broke association records for funds raised for local charities such as Hearth Place, Grandview Children's Centre, and Denise House. Later in 2019, Vicki would be elected as President-Elect by the Board and served as Association President in 2020. She also gives back to fellow realtors® by holding workshops focused on goal setting and personal development using tools like vision boards and using your true "why".
