"Experience You Can Trust"
Bob comes from a long family history in the real estate profession. His father started his own brokerage, L. C. Parker Real Estate, in Wilmington, DE, in the 1940’s. That firm continues to thrive today in Cecil County, MD, under the brokerage of his brother, Steve. Bob moved from Cecil County to this area in 1971 to attend the University of Maryland, College Park, where he graduated in 1975 with a Bachelor of Science degree. For the next 14-plus years he worked in material procurement and inventory control, developing invaluable negotiation techniques and contract skills.
Feeling a desire for independence in 1989, Bob decided to combine the skills he had mastered in the materials management profession with his passion to help others and launched his career in real estate. Since then he has been successfully serving the residential real estate needs of buyers and sellers in the Baltimore-Washington Corridor. His favorite aspect of being a Realtor is being able to help people make, what is for most, the largest financial decision they will ever face. As a result of his high standards and desire to reach the top of his profession, Bob has acquired his Associate Broker’s License-- the highest level of licensing available through the Maryland Real Estate Commission.
Time away from his business is spent with his wife Carolyn and their teenage twins, Luke and Jake. Bob is an avid sports enthusiast and a huge Orioles fan, serving the Orioles as a Designated Hitter (volunteer ticket sales representative). He also enjoys racquetball and helping coach his boys’ travel baseball team.
Buying or selling real estate is considered the third most stressful event in one’s life. Bob’s mission is simply stated as:
“Through effective communication and constant attention to detail, I will make your real estate experience as pleasant and stress-free as possible. I’m here for you. Call me!”
