Get to know Judith Parker
I have a passion for living and this includes helping others to find what makes their hearts sing. I absolutely love working with people to buy and sell real estate. Nothing makes me happier than to see my clients thrilled with finding and purchasing the home of their dreams or to assist my sellers in getting their home sold, so that they can move forward with their plans and dreams.
I also have a passion for helping animals. I currently volunteer with Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue and this is also very rewarding to me. You will enjoy knowing that I am considered a "Foster Failure" and I am proud of it. Two of my Boxers...BABE and Guthrie were pulled from high kill shelters the day before they were to be euthanized. I volunteered to foster them until a loving home could be found. Guess what...it was found...my home...LOL! I also have Lady Lilly who I purchased as a baby. I love my fur babies. I also have a cat named Button.
In 2008 my step-father passed away and this left my 85yo mother living alone in Ormond Beach, Fl. After much discussion she agreed to move to Charlotte, NC to be with me. What a relief. I purchased a beautiful ranch home in Union County, so that she could easily move about without worrying about steps. It is a joy to have her here with me and she is such a gift. Daily I thank the good Lord that I have this very special time with her. It is such a pleasure to be able to help her for she has always been a big support of all that I do.
Another of my passions is gardening. With almost an acre of property I find myself starting and planning many gardens. I have several Iris gardens as well as a beautiful butterfly garden. I have also planted 20 trees since moving here in 2008. Many are flowering trees so this spring should be breathtaking. I would eventually love to receive the award for having a nature preserve. Will need more flowers as well as a water garden. Once again helping our bees, trees, and etc.
In reviewing what I have written, I find it quite interesting that helping others is a common theme of my life. Below I have included a little about my life before real estate.
Judith Parker was born and raised in western Pennsylvania and moved to Miami, Florida in 1979 after graduating from St. Francis School of Nursing in Pittsburgh, Pa. Judith went on and received her Bachelor's Degree in Health Services Administration from Florida International University in Miami, Florida. Judith had a great medical career and moved thru the ranks quickly and was Director of Nursing/Clinical Services until 1998. Her specialty was psychiatric nursing, so you can depend on Judith's great abillity and instinct to hear and understand your needs....so here is where she can help!
You may be wondering as many of her clients do...how did she move from nursing to real estate? Judith will tell you that she owes her career change to her brother, Bruce Parker. She thanks her blessings daily for the change and his impact on her.
You see, in 1995 her one and only older brother, Bruce Parker was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Radiation helped for two years but in October 1997 her brother died. Before he died, Judith talked with Bruce and he related that his life had been a "great ride". His only regret was the fact that he would not get to see his two beautiful little daughters grow to maturity. After his death, Judith decided that her life had not been a great ride for her life was owned by her position and responsibilities of the hospital. She resigned in 1997 and earned her REALTOR license in 1998.
Judith Parker has been a Broker/REALTOR for 14 years and loves it. She feels that she can still use many of her skills from her days in medicine, but now she has the freedom and joy in helping to make others truly happy.
It would be my pleasure to help you or someone you refer with their real estate needs. Thank you!
