Parker Quigley Properties is a full service firm of Lake Hartwell real estate specialists. Additional areas of expertise include Lake Keowee home sales, Lake Jocassee real estate, and off-lake home sales in Anderson, Oconee, and Pickens Counties. Our team members come from diverse backgrounds, meaning that no matter what you may be looking for, one of us is sure to be able to assist! We are experienced with first-time home buyers, relocations, retirees, those seeking investment properties or vacation homes, as well as buyers moving up to accommodate a growing family. In addition to being well-known Lake Hartwell real estate specialists, we also work with clients who are not looking to buy lakefront property.
With two decades of experience in the real estate industry, Parker has helped countless families buy and sell their homes, primarily focusing on residential property on Lake Hartwell. Having spent a decade frequently relocating with her family before settling in the Upstate in 1992, Parker had numerous experiences as both buyer and seller, which gave her a unique opportunity to cultivate her own concept of the ideal Realtor, years before entering the business herself. That concept has worked, making Parker one of the most successful agents in the Western Upstate!
In a time where new agents rely heavily on Google, smart phones, and GPS devices to find their way around and answer the questions thrown at them by clients, Parker remains one of the few who has withstood the test of time. Licensed in both South Carolina and Georgia, she knows her way around Lake Hartwell like no one else. For any property in question, she probably remembers when it was built, or has already seen it change hands and could tell you when it last sold and for how much (without looking it up)… Maybe she even had a hand in selling it!
In 2014, Parker embarked on a new chapter in her real estate story by opening her own company, Parker Quigley Properties. In a move that brought her career full circle, Parker opened the office in the same space which once housed Hartwell Lake Properties, where she got her start in 1996. This has become a family enterprise, with Parker as our company’s owner and listing specialist, and her husband Gary Smith acting as Broker-In-Charge. In 2012, Parker’s younger daughter Siobhan joined the family business as a buyer’s agent and is already ranked in the top 20 in sales of residential property on Lake Hartwell among members of the Western Upstate Board of Realtors. She was followed in 2014 by Gary’s son Jordan Smith, who also works as a buyer’s agent. Most recently, Parker’s older daughter Kelin Ashley has joined the company as Parker’s listing coordinator and marketing & technology specialist. We have been quite fortunate to have acquired an excellent team of other agents along the way, and 2016 was our team’s best in the past decade. We are looking forward to an even better 2017!
Parker’s cumulative sales of property on Lake Hartwell make her the top selling Lake Hartwell real estate agent of the past 15 years, with sales totaling over $110 million (as recorded by the Western Upstate Association of Realtors).
*For 2016, Parker Quigley Properties sold the highest $ volume of waterfront homes and land on the South Carolina side of Lake Hartwell among all firms in the Western Upstate Association of Realtors. Additionally, The Quigley Team alone took the top individual spot in the same category with sales totaling over $10 million.
