Olya Parker is a skilled real estate agent who takes great pleasure in helping people buy and sell their homes. Whether representing buyers, sellers, or renters in a transaction, Olya takes a personal approach, providing an enjoyable and seamless experience that is focused on results.
“Clients can expect absolute loyalty and complete confidentiality from me during the process and beyond. I have a strong work ethic of integrity and accountability in all areas of life, both personally and professionally,” says Olya.
Olya was born in Kirov Russia and adopted and raised by a Dallas missionary family headed by Kurt Nelson, CEO of East-West Ministries. She learned early the value of hard work, humility, kindness, patience, and care for others. She is Russian speaking and has traveled extensively on short-term missionary trips to Russia, Cuba, and Kazakhstan.
Specializing in Uptown, Downtown, Park Cities, and Preston Hollow, Olya brings a level of expertise and client commitment that cannot be matched. Her background includes working alongside top Dallas Realtors, and honing her skills to become a valued member of the Swanson + Cousins Group at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty – the leader in Dallas-Fort Worth luxury real estate.
She is a graduate of Grace Academy and First Baptist Academy of Dallas, and was a student at Covenant College where she received a softball scholarship. Olya is no stranger to team sports and handling complex situations with ease – skills that have come to serve her well in the competitive Dallas marketplace. Additionally, her familiarity with Dallas neighborhoods is extensive, having lived and worked here for over 18 years. She previously served as a nanny for several prominent families in the Park Cities, and worked as a substitute teacher at the reknown Meadowbrook Private School, before pursuing her passion for real estate.
Olya lives in the Design District with her husband, Dallas native and professional MMA fighter, Andrew Parker. Being married to a professional athlete and trainer, Olya can often be found in the gym. When she is not out representing homes, or showing clients all that Dallas has to offer, Olya loves spending time with her dogs on the Katy or Trinity Trail, as well as admiring art, traveling, and dancing – she is currently a student at Gocha Shorena Center of Ballroom Dance.
If you are looking for a creative thinker who knows Dallas neighborhoods inside and out, and understands how to draft offers to secure the home of your dreams, Olya is for you. Give her a call for exceptional service, knowledge and local expertise.
