My Story

jay parrish realtor story

What’s up! I’m Jay Parrish, an Associate Broker with Coldwell Banker Elite. I was born and raised in Northern Virginia and after graduating from the University of Mary Washington with a Bachelors in Business Administration, I knew that Fredericksburg was where I wanted to live and raise my family. I’m happy to call Fredericksburg home and have lived here for over a decade. The Fredericksburg area is such a beautiful and historic location tucked right in between Washington, DC and Richmond. I love that I am able to help individuals and families buy and sell their homes in such a great location! I’m passionate about technology and educating my clients through every step of the process, allowing my clients to make the best decisions possible.

Why I’m Different

Before starting in real estate, I gained extensive sales and negotiating experience with a Fortune 500 corporation, owned and operated a successful local small business and taught marketing and business classes. From my experience as a successful business owner, I am known for outstanding client service, prompt communication, social media marketing techniques, and as a skilled negotiator with my client’s best interests at heart. I love the challenges that come with a real estate transaction and being able to figure out a solution to allow the client to achieve their goals.

In My Free Time

I love to spend my downtime with my amazing wife and two daughters. I enjoy taking photos of my family and traveling to new places together. I played basketball at Mary Washington and continue to work out to stay in shape!

I look forward to meeting you soon!
