Today we’d like to introduce you to Temple D. Parker.
Hi Temple D., thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
Two wonderful parents raised me in the rough city of the District of Columbia. I moved to Baltimore 9 years ago, hoping for a fresh start in my career. This move inspired me to become an entrepreneur.
Before stepping out on faith in August 2021, I always worked for employers who provided services to the community, but HOW they wanted employees to help the community was always based on numbers or a dollar. I would get so frustrated because I believed in not providing false hope and wanted to treat people with respect and dignity. My career as a real estate agent reflects that belief.
My parents gave back to the community and cared for the neighborhood’s children. I became a business owner to create the environment, mission, and vision that provides holistic services meeting people where they are and helping them to the best of my ability, just like my mom and dad. If you’re looking for an agent with the vision and values to get the job done, I’d love to hear from you! Don’t think you’re ready or just need to get started? I’d love to hear from you. Contact me today to start your home buying or home selling journey.
I am married to Walter Parker, Jr of 8 years and we have two wonderful children Ne’Miah and Elijah. Outside of being an entrepreneur, I love going to sporting events (especially football), spending time with my family and binge watching my favorite shows.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
No, it was not a smooth road. Living in Washington, DC, you were taught to graduate from high school, go to college, obtain a job in the government, make great money, and retire. Well, they did not tell you what to do when you get laid off from this well-paid government job (they do not help you at all), and you have to start looking for another job that does not pay anywhere near what you are making in the government—then moving to a slow pace city that felt like you were the foreigner plus I was single mother at the time. The adjustment was hard for my daughter and I, I never thought having degrees would hamper me from finding a job nor finding a middle school for my daughter was challenging as well. So, my daughter had to stay with my parents for the last year of middle school in DC and it took me almost a year to become employed. Relocating was not what our expected at first but with networking, keeping my faith and I weathering the storms, I am proud of whom I have become.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about WENT Consulting Services & Realtor?
I am a business consultant and a Realtor. As a business consultant, I work with small business owners who are rebranding, restructing or starting-up. I am a realtor with Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices Homesale Realty, my mission is to understand my cleint’s needs and advocating as a seller or buyer agent while building relationships and creating a means of generational welath. I also assist those clients that have the dream of buying a home but were told they are not credit worthy.
What matters most to you?
Giving back to the community, working with our youth, adults and families to assist them with accomplishing their life goals. I want to ensure that people are not being taken advantage of, so educating, sitting down, and meeting with everyone I encounter is essential. I want individuals to understand if I do not know, I will connect them to someone that could assist them. I am very big on the holistic approach.
