Hendersonville became home for my daughter and me in 2002 after years of visiting family and falling in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains. My husband, whom I met here, graduated from East Henderson High school and his family roots date back to the origin of our town! My father, Monty Parker, taught Spanish at West Henderson High School, and my mother, Sandy, taught ESL at First Baptist Church. My daughter, Bethany Joy, a local artist, educator, and social media influencer, lives nearby with her husband. I am grateful that my awesome brother also lives here.
Some of my favorite places in our area include the Carl Sandburg Home, the Biltmore Estate, Jump Off Rock, and the shops of downtown Hendersonville and Brevard. I enjoy visiting the local Apple Orchards, walking the hiking trails at Pisgah and DuPont Forest and our local parks. Find me on social media @RealtywithCarla, message me, and let’s have coffee!
My own experience with moving began at the young age of nine when I learned what it’s like to be uprooted, to make new friends, and settle into a new school and neighborhood. Since my first move from Michigan to Georgia, I have lived in many states. I remember the thrill of becoming a first-time homeowner, which led to my becoming a licensed Real Estate Agent in 2017. I enjoy serving our area by volunteering at the Boys & Girls Club, helping with various events at Fletcher Parks and Recreation, and preparing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.
