About Cynthia Parker
Let me just start by saying…I absolutely LOVE what I do! I am fortunate enough to help wonderful clients like you find and purchase a home you will love; as well as market and sell a home that holds such precious memories for you. It is a big deal! I take this very seriously by listening to your needs, then researching and working to help you achieve or even exceed your desired results. I am your trusted advisor, your practiced negotiator, an excellent communicator, a master of detail, and your skilled house-hunter since 2004! I am ready to help you- whether it is your first home, your “big house”, or if you are downsizing….whether you have lived here for years…or if you are just moving to our area.
How did I come to be here… doing this? I grew up in Augusta, Ga and came to summer camp in NC as a teen. I moved at to attend college in NC and never went back. I have lived in Charlotte, Greenville, and now live in Raleigh since 1986. I am married to Victor, and we love it here. We have a home in the Five Points area, where we raised our 2 sons. They are now grown men in their twenties. Time does fly! Our boys attended public schools, and we have been involved with many charities and groups over the years such as BSA, PTA, SafeChild, and many more. We enjoy camping and biking in our spare time. I also love singing as lead vocalist in a women’s choral group that performs for seniors in nursing homes and retirement centers. Last, but certainly not least, and really most of all, we are so in love with our giant golden retriever named Scout!
Real Estate is my second life career following twenty years as a Quality and Project Manager in manufacturing. I am a detail oriented and passionate person, and that combination will show in my work and communications with you.

"Cynthia is the rare combination of impeccable integrity and utter competence packaged with kindness and efficiency. Too many people don't realize what an enormous difference it makes to have a true professional represent you buying / selling a home. Cynthia is at the top of the trade and always looks out for you. She is a fantastic negotiator while being fair and reasonable. She spent a lot of time helping us -- beyond what others have done in my experience. She also works with top professionals in all the related buying activities. It was a pleasure to work with her and it is a mistake for you not to do the same" Zillow 2021 Gina and Brian
“Cynthia helped my boyfriend and I find a home and close on it in a very short period of time. We were under pressure to find a new place to live in as the house we were living in was being sold. She answered any questions I had. She kept us informed about everything during our buying process. I highly recommend using her to find your next home or to put your current home up for sale!” (Posted in Zillow 12/29/20) -Julianna
"Dear Cynthia Thank you for everything you did for us as our real estate agent. Your experience, knowledge, and wisdom made selling our home go so smoothly for us. We enjoyed working with you.” - Sandra
“Thank you so much for all your help and guidance through the process of selling my mother's home. It was not something I was prepared for... so having someone I could trust meant a lot! When a buyer called us out of the blue before we were ready to list, the first person I thought of was you. My mom had such a great experience with you when she sold her home and then bought this one. I am happy to say I did as well. Thanks again.” - Matthew
“I've known Cynthia for 12 years, 3 transactions. I was introduced to her from a work colleague back in 2008 buying my first home. She and her team (especially financial guru, Tyler Priest) are the best! Cynthia is knowledgeable, professional, caring, thoughtful, matter of fact and sets realistic expectations. When I was ready to buy a larger home in 2019, I reached out to her and let her know that my husband and I were ready to start the process. It didn't take long...we started in early June and closed in early July. She really knows her stuff, and that goes a long way! Her successful experience speaks for itself so there was no question that when I was ready to sell our townhouse, she was ready to step in....listed my townhouse and within 24 hours, had multiple offers, and we were under contract! Who does that during a pandemic? Mrs. Cynthia Parker! You will not be disappointed!” -Tamika
"Cynthia is fantastic. She is knowledgeable, attentive and conscientious. She walked me through every step of the process clearly and ensured my best interest was in the forefront. She will be my only realtor.” -Susan
“I give Cynthia 5 Stars! From the very first contact with Cynthia, she was immediately generous with her time and easily accessible. Our initial meeting went smoothly, and every detail involved in selling our home was covered. Cynthia answered all of our questions and explained each aspect we, as sellers, needed to know and be aware of. With her market analysis in hand, she guided us to a good selling price. When there was an unexpected death in the family, she not only expressed compassion but also patience as we needed extra time to get the house ready for market. I felt completely informed and supported by her through every step, including negotiations with the buyers. I highly recommend Cynthia Parker to be your Raleigh area realtor!” -NLC
“Here's the thing about Cynthia. When you first meet her, she is in colorful clothing, beautiful bright lipstick and a smile from ear to ear. When it comes time to buy a home, she defends you like a pit bull. She checks in through all phases of the process and makes sure you are on schedule for inspections to the minute. We were first time buyers. I was terrified. She held my hand through those panic moments, too. That's just a description of her. Now let's talk about our home buying experience. I've been looking for a house for two years. She found it in two hours. Cynthia is so great because she LISTENS, she fights for you, and she delivers results.” Rachel S
“Thank you to my friend Cynthia Perry Parker for helping me find a great one-story, end-unit condo in a wonderful development! Excited to move there soon. Cynthia is a wonderful realtor, ex-Shopping Spree co-chair partner and friend!” -Ellen F
“Cynthia was awesome, got with us on EXTREME short notice on her way out of town for vacation. She was knowledgeable and did so much for us on our behalf. We won’t do business with anyone else.” -Tim S
