Where are you from? How long have you lived here? Tell us a little more about yourself.

Alice Heitchue: I grew up in the golden east of North Carolina, Rocky Mount. Notably, I was part of the Rocky Mount Senior High marching Gryphons, the only marching band in the region to win two back-to-back National Championships. I went on to Virginia Commonwealth University and graduated with a BFA in Design. After college, I began my career as an illustrator for the NC Wildlife Magazine in Raleigh. While in Raleigh, I worked for the Southern Governors Association and an art director for an internet book publisher.

I moved to Wilmington in 1997 to raise my children and enjoy the coastal lifestyle. I worked as a Tasteful Magazine designer and various other freelance endeavors, including the Battleship NC and New Hanover Regional Medical center.

When did you start Intracoastal Realty? What is one of the highlights of your career? Why have you enjoyed working here?

Alice Heitchue: I began working as a designer in the Marketing Department in the spring of 2017. The highlight of my career was receiving the #1 Award for Customer Service. I enjoy working with agents and teams to build their businesses. Their success is my success. It is fantastic to be a part of a winning team.
