Every year, the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) REALTOR® Magazine features 30 real estate entrepreneurs who are under the age of 30. According to  NAR, these rising stars are not only successful in the real estate industry, but they have demonstrated leadership in their careers and are making a difference in their profession. This year, two North Carolina real estate agents—Alex Lawrence and Allie Parker—made the 30 under 30 list.

Alex Lawrence of Raleigh, N.C. is a REALTOR® at Costello Real Estate and Investments – Big Al’s Realty. Lawrence obtained his real estate license because he  wanted his big personality to make a significant impact. He fell in love with commercial real estate and enjoys helping people buy, build and sell properties. With  every transaction, Lawrence donates $150 to WakeMed’s Behavior Health Network. His donations help the facility with mental health, behavioral health and suicide —which have closely affected his family. In 2021, Lawrence had 33 individual transaction sides, which totaled over twelve million dollars in sales.

Allie Parker is a REALTOR® in Cary, N.C. and is all about spontaneous adventures. In 2021, Parker stepped out on courage and started her own brokerage with  Keller Williams Realty Cary. Within the year, Parker had 48 individual transaction sides, totaling over twenty million dollars in sales. She was able to hire her first  employee, create a company website and buy an investment property. While forging through the pandemic, Parker was able to sell her home and purchase a new  home. Through life’s uncertainties, Parker prides herself for never giving up.
