"It was a pleasure having Parker as our Realtor for our DC Home. She strongly knows the market and she delivered on every detail that she told us she would do. Parker made the experience of selling our home free of any stress. Honestly, every step of the process was smooth and easy. Would highly recommend Parker without reservation."

– Marielena Javier and Luis Ruiz-Ortiz

"We found Parker to be the perfect mix of encouraging, knowledgeable, and realistic to help guide us as first-time (and a bit overwhelmed) homebuyers. She’s well-versed in the D.C. real estate market but takes pains to break complicated processes or quirks of the market down for you to make sure you’re comfortable with each step. We felt like she was invested in us finding a home that worked for us and we never felt rushed or pressured to pick a place. Parker is so personable and was always available to connect with us or discuss our concerns. Her expertise gave us the confidence to forward, even in an incredibly competitive market, and we feel reassured knowing that she’s still in our corner after moving in. We would recommend Parker to anyone entering the home buying process!"

"Working with Parker was simply amazing. She is a consummate professional and made our experience as positive and as smooth as possible. Parker is punctual, kind, and always had the best information and advice to help us keep everything in perspective. We appreciated her patience and 'low pressure' attitude while we shopped many different potential homes. When it came to putting in a serious offer, she was assertive, precise, and helped us feel confident about our decisions. At no point in our experience did we feel 'in the dark' about the home buying process. Parker always had the most well-informed answers to all of our questions. Whether we were asking about school districts, sump pumps, market trends, or wainscoting, Parker always had a concise and informative explanation. Anyone who gets to have Parker as their agent should consider themselves lucky!"

"Working with Parker removed so much of the stress of moving 1,500 miles in the middle of a pandemic. She was able to match what we were looking for in a house in the middle of a very tight market with the available inventory. We felt as clients that we were provided a great understanding of the area and found a place that meets what we wanted in a house and community. Parker was very patient and responsive to our many emails and texts. I feel like we not only met a real estate agent but made a friend."

"To put it briefly: Parker embodies patience, positivity, flexibility, and transparency. Working with Parker to find and close on our home was seamless. The process of reviewing disclosures and contracts can be daunting, so Parker’s patience and willingness to answer all of our questions was critical. One of the most amazing parts of the experience was Parker’s flexibility— no matter what time of day, or day of the week- Parker was somehow always able to jump to action, schedule a same day tour, and come meet us to check out each listing on short notice. Parker takes great care to truly hear her clients needs/likes/dislikes— this is not a quality we have experienced in the past with real estate agents and truly made us feel secure with her as a trusted resource with our best interest top of mind. The current market is unlike any other and Parker remained positive and patient with us as we searched for the perfect home, always advising and advocating for us along the way. We hope we won’t be on a home search again any time soon, after finding the house of our dreams with Parker’s help— but if we had to do it all over again, we certainly would know who to enlist to help us find and seal the deal."
