Dating is like real estate; the longer you’re on the market, the more people are going to wonder what’s wrong with you! -Holly ParkerToday I have a conversation with  New York City real estate powerhouse Holly Parker. Holly is with Douglas Elliman, NYC’s premiere luxury residential brokerage and has nearly 8 billion in sales.  As you will learn through the interview, Holly is smart, a rock star networker, and made the combo of grit, grace and being sensitive work. Holly has been selling high-end properties for 20 years and along the way she has figured out that real estate is a lot like life, and life is a lot like real estate.  After 7 years of marriage, Holly found herself “falling out of contract” and dreaded being a newly divorced woman who was “back on the market”. This experience inspired her to write her first book, back on the market: A Realtor’s Guide to Love and Life. In this interview, Holly shares the pain of her divorce, the triumph of her second marriage, and the secrets to finding herself. And now as a wife and mom to twin boys...life is precious and Holly realized that loving herself and caring for herself is now a priority.Find out more about Holly Parker, and purchase her book: Back on. the market----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------So excited to be offering the Fearlessly Facing Fifty community special savings with Lenox!· Lenox is unveiling new French Perle Scallop: the latest design from the popular, 10-year dinnerware pattern.
