Miranda Parker is a born and raised Tarheel whose strong roots have blessed her with a wonderful and diverse community. An adventure-seeker and traveler, Miranda has been lucky to experience many different cultures, but Chapel Hill will always be home. As a “people person” with a wide network of family and friends, she thrives on connecting with and helping others. Her energy and charisma have served her well over many years in customer service, and she has finally found her niche in joining Weaver Street Realty.
Daughter of WSR owner Jay Parker, Miranda began attending open houses, walk-throughs and company events at an early age. She has always admired her dad’s openness, dedication and ability to forge meaningful relationships with his clients, and she knows that she has been learning from the best. As the newest member of the firm, Miranda is proud and excited to be a part of the next generation of the WSR family.
Miranda graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with a degree in Psychology, which provided her with knowledge she put to good use over a decade and a half in the restaurant world. Through years of working as a bartender, manager and server, as well as a stint with a wine and beer distributor, she has built and sustained many multigenerational clientele relationships.
Inspired by her sister Madeline’s work with NC WARN and her years of experiential learning at Carolina Friends School, Miranda is increasingly committed to building environmental awareness. She is also a gardener, avid birder and animal lover with three fur babies. Her dream is to live on a farm and provide a sanctuary for rescue animals.
Miranda loves music and singing, as well as dancing, sports and hiking. She is a board game enthusiast, especially cooperative endeavors, and delights in fantasy fandoms and superheroes. She has an affinity for languages — conversant in Spanish and hard at work learning Greek. She prides herself on attuned organizational skills and attention to detail. Miranda also has a flair for interior- decoration and home staging, which she plans to pursue as a secondary element of her business.
