Founders Vision

On November 24, 2010, our family business patriarch, John B. Parker passed away.  John Parker was an active and passionate commercial real estate leader. His principles and legacy for providing dedicated real estate service and creative development solutions continue with intensity at Parker Properties.

For over 34 years, Parker Properties has been creating, enhancing, and managing "extraordinary" commercial projects where tenants and their customers love to work, shop, and play. The company has been involved with campus developments throughout Southern California, including bio-medical in San Diego, high technology projects in the South Bay, shopping centers in South OC, and distressed property re-development in LA.  Being contrarian, visionary, and creative is part of our company's DNA.  Our projects are tenant/customer driven in their design, operations, and management.

John Parker's vision and concepts for creating great workplaces are contained in the following interview excerpts from 2006:

-By developing a business environment that makes work fun, creative and convenient, we hope to create a new standard for office development that makes sense for years to come.

-An A+ office campus location offers a balance of work and life places, and not just the standard amenities and outdoor areas, but also great schools, diverse housing, recreation and open spaces, and a 'happening' retail core.

-Today's office worker wants to be closer to home and have more flexibility in the workplace to accommodate less structured work hours...

-A critical aspect of the planning process for Summit OC was the integration of the most desirable employee & community focused amenities. This resulted in the Renaissance Club Sport, 177 room business-resort-boutique hotel, restaurant, bar, spa, and membership sports club.

-Our customers are Southern California office tenants, usually industry leading, large and small, and increasingly technology and medical companies related.

-We want to create the office environment for today's world of work. More and more companies want to satisfy their most important asset - their people.
