Parr & Abernathy first opened its doors in 1986 by Elizabeth W. Abernathy and Donald W. Parr. Our team is comprised of long-standing employees and agents that are a direct reflection of how we do business. Our commitment to customer satisfaction creates customers for life. Generations of customers and clients continue to refer friends, neighbors and strangers to our office.

Over the years, our company has been recognized for a number of awards. The important part is not just the company, but rather the REALTORS® who make up the company. Without well respected, educated and recognized REALTORS®, no real estate firm would continue to thrive like Parr & Abernathy Realty, Inc. has over the last 30+ years.
