PTAA Member Chris Parr Profiled in Business Journal

The current issue of the Triad Business Journal features a nice profile of PTAA member Chris Parr:

After working as a salesman for carpet manufacturer Shaw Industries, the 1991 Appalachian State University graduate returned to Greensboro to begin his own company installing carpets at new apartment complexes. “That’s how I learned the business,” Parr says. “I was the salesman, I was the owner, I had 10 to 12 guys carpeting all of these new apartment complexes.” Parr decided to shut down that company and start building apartments. His first project was Bromley Park, a 198-unit project in Winston-Salem. Parr Investments has continued building in Winston-Salem, which he says has become an up-and-coming city. “I’m seeing this huge shift there,” Parr says. “I think there is a whole new vibe going on in Winston-Salem, and I think other people are seeing it as well.”
