It is our immense pleasure to recommend Parrish Thorne as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for their ideal home. We have worked with Parrish over the last 10 years from initially helping us find a home to rent when we first moved to the Charlotte area to ultimately buying and selling two more homes within in the Myers Park and Eastover areas. Parrish is a highly attentive agent who is quick to respond and always gets the job done in a professional manner. He is highly personable with an engaging personality. Whether you are buying or selling we would highly recommend Parrish for your real estate needs.
