Angela Rodriguez will be the first to tell you that the old familiar saying, “a great leader is only as good as your team,” is absolutely 100% true. As the Residential Broker-In-Charge for The Parker Group, Angela’s biggest qualifier in cultivating her top-notch team has been to seek out agents who genuinely care about the people they serve, and who demonstrate through their work ethic that they truly want what’s best for their clients.

Angela wholeheartedly believes it’s the most caring agents who excel because real estate is such a relationship business. And, Angela is all about nurturing rewarding relationships. She has been praised as “one in a million” and has a stellar reputation with her clients for creating their easiest, most worry-free real estate experience ever. New clients are likely to hear her say, “you’re stuck with me.” That’s Angela’s short version for she’s going to give you all she’s got in order to solve your real estate needs, earn your trust, and lay the foundation for a lasting relationship– which more often than not, becomes a true friendship.

From high-end luxury homes to first homes, second homes, and investment properties, expect Angela to always bring her “A” Game: a winning combination of high-energy, determination, marketing expertise, and can-do attitude. No one will work harder to find you the right home or seek out a qualified buyer or negotiate on your behalf, while expertly handling all the details. As someone who owns rental property and recently bought a historic home that she renovated from top to bottom, Angela offers her buyers and sellers a wealth of construction advice and is happy to share her personal list of architects, contractors, and interior designers.

“My husband and I have chosen to raise our children and build our lives in this wonderful community. It’s great to team up with a company rooted in relationships and passionate about making Greenville a better place for all who live and visit here.”

Before joining The Parker Group, Angela worked in real estate sales for over six years at a local independent Top 10 residential agency where she consistently was ranked a top producer. Prior to that, she was a high-profile TV personality, as a news anchor and reporter for WYFF, where she earned an Emmy for outstanding investigative reporting. Sellers appreciate how well Angela is able to leverage her sales and marketing expertise to promote homes quickly to potential buyers. Buyers are often able to find homes even before they hit the market, thanks to her “house detective” skills.

Angela is excited to serve as The Parker Group’s first Residential Broker-in-Charge and have the opportunity to expand the firm’s residential sales division. She welcomes all the challenges, responsibilities, and rewards that her new role brings and loves that she will still be able to work with her own network of buyers and sellers. Her goal: to have in place a top-quality team of caring, hard-working agents, a trusted network of attorneys, residential lenders, contractors, architects, estimators, and more, as well as first-class in-house transaction services and marketing support to set The Parker Group’s residential sales division apart.

“It’s exciting to be a part of a company that is so passionate and committed to Greenville’s growth, and all the opportunities this offers buyers and sellers in the Upstate. Whether you are seeking your forever home… or to upsize or downsize… or to find just the right investment property… The Parker Group’s residential team is ready to exceed your real estate expectations.”
