A Word From The President

Crestview Properties is in the midst of a makeover! We are so happy that you are visiting our site. As the new President of Crestview Properties, I’d be remiss in not giving proper recognition to its founder, the late Mr. Randy Parker. Mr. Parker was a vibrant force in this community; he loved it with a passion and was loved and respected by so many. We feel just as strongly about keeping his dream alive, although our focus will be transitioning.

We will be redirecting our energies into meeting the Real Estate and rental needs of our community, and those moving to the area. We want to show you why Chandler is the best place for your family. In addition to Crestview Properties having built over 300 homes in 3 of Chandler’s finest neighborhoods, we have personal knowledge of this area, the homebuilders, and most all of the homes built here over the last 30 years. Our team includes an experienced Broker/Realtor, Laura Tedford, and two excellent, knowledgeable Realtors, Linda Parker, and Ken Rollins. In addition we have 19 townhomes for lease in desirable locations, within the city. The townhomes are kept in great living condition.

Chandler is one of those amazing communities, which has experienced exponential growth and yet has retained its ability to keep that small town feeling. Our grandparents came to this town in the 1940’s; we raised our children here, and now our kids are actively bringing up the 5th generation in our schools and churches! So, it’s more than words! We believe in this community, we are part of it, and as our slogan says …

We live here… We work here… We’re here for YOU!

Thank you for visiting us at Crestview Properties! We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Ken Rollins

Realtor
Phone: 903 316 2988

Howdy, I am native Texan, raised in a small town in South Texas. I graduated as Class of ’80 from Texas A&M University at College Station. My first employment was in commercial catfish farming in Mississippi. My B.S. degree in Aquaculture actually was put to good use for 13 years. After managing farms, I next moved into the food industry as management with Luby’s Cafeterias. While spending 20 years managing units with Luby’s, I dealt with people on a personal level. My last 10 years were in Tyler, where I met and enjoyed the company of many I like to call friends instead of just customers. Now being part of Crestview Properties, I have the opportunity to share a career with my wife, Linda Parker, a Realtor herself the past 14 years. I am excited to be in a position that allows opportunities to make new friends. Thus, please allow me to offer you my services as your Realtor. Farms and Ranches are my passion when you are ready to begin a search. Thank you for coming here, and may we assist in finding your new home or preferred piece of real estate.
