When investing in real estate you need someone with loads of experience and knowledge as well as someone you can trust to watch out for your interests.
I started my career as a real estate agent in 1975 for my father's company, Julian A. Parrish Realty, in Blountstown, Florida. I became the broker after my father's retirement in 1979 and renamed the company Standard Farm Realty. Although we marketed residential, commercial and acreage, we specialized in sales and purchase of acreage for the following 22 years.
Beginning in November 2001, I accepted a position as an acquisition agent for the Department of Environmental Protection "Florida Forever" program. I gained valuable experience and knowledge of government acquisitions and conservation easements. After 4 successful years of purchasing over $300 million in property for the state conservation program, I returned to the private sector.
Thanks for your interest and we look forward to helping you with your real estate investments.
Armed with an insider’s knowledge and expertise, I now represent clients who want to sell land or conservation easements to the government. So that my son can follow in my footsteps and take advantage of the knowledge of two generations, I have established a new real estate company "Jerry Parrish Realty".
We have several top notch agents that work in our offices located in Tallahassee and Blountstown. My wife and fishing partner, Norma Parrish, manages my paperwork, and my daughter Tara Parrish Garland creates and maintains our webpage. Our son, Sgt. Thomas Parrish, is in the Army and has returned safely from Afghanistan.
