Parker was born in Colorado, but has always had personal ties to North Carolina. Both of his grandmothers lived in North Carolina, and he spent much of his childhood here making memories. He moved to Asheville after graduating from Fort Lewis College in 2014 with a Bachelor’s degree in International Business.
Although new to the mortgage industry, Parker has climbed the corporate ladder to leadership roles in all of his previous positions. During his tenure as a civil engineering inspector, he was tasked with overseeing many multi-million dollar construction projects in both Colorado and North Carolina. He worked hard to obtain over 10 specialty certifications in just three years, and became knowledgeable in many areas of the horizontal and vertical construction processes. Put simply, Parker sees challenges and faces them head on.
After experiencing a stressful first homebuying experience in early 2021, Parker saw an opportunity for improvement in many areas, including communication, clarity of information provided, loan processing timeliness, and general professionalism. He knew that he could fill in these gaps in the process, and saw a great chance to do so by joining the West Asheville branch of GoPrime.
Parker is bilingual and has spent time in both Colombia and Thailand. He loves connecting with other cultures in and out of his community, and volunteers frequently. One of his most memorable volunteer opportunities included teaching on the Southern Ute reservation, working with Latin immigrants to help them understand their rights, translating parent-teacher conferences for Latino children, tutoring English, and teaching outdoor education.
Zach and his team were very helpful during the purchase of our new house in Hendersonville. He worked with us to find financing options that met our needs, and gladly answered our many questions along the way. He made the whole process as easy as possible – the portal we used made it clear where we were at in the process, and what we needed to do and when. Everyone we worked with was very responsive, friendly, and personable. Thanks GoPrime!
Just closed on a place in AVL! Big thanks to Zach and the GoPrime team for making this process as pain free as possible from their end. The communication via direct calls with Zach and emails with him and the team were easy and very personable. The online portal for submitting key docs and doing E-signatures allowed me to work through this on my time more or less. The process was explained well and I think I now understand how to buy a home (after buying one)…regardless if I get it or not, it doesn’t matter cause GoPrime does. Would recommend!
Zach and his team are brilliant! We had a really difficult transaction and they were there and attentive the whole way through letting us know how they were going to handle it and finding creative solutions for crazy problems in this absolutely insane market. I can’t recommend them enough! Thanks Zach and the whole team for helping us finally get a home for our family!!
