Grand Welcome of Palm Beach & Broward County is owned and operated by Parker Smith. Parker was born and raised in the Ft. Lauderdale area and comes from a family of entrepreneurs, owning successful businesses in both the real estate and contracting industries of Southeast Florida.
After graduating from Florida State University, Parker started his professional career in Insurance, where he became the leading commercial sales agent for over two years. From there, he worked for the Smith family interior finishings company for over six years where he ran multiple departments covering operations, sales, and marketing. The family company was recently sold to a private equity firm and Parker decided to redirect his talents to the vacation rental management industry.
Parker has a deep-rooted passion for traveling and planning spontaneous getaways, and lived overseas in Sweden for two years. In his spare time, Parker enjoys boating, sailing, scuba diving, and snorkeling. He also loves a quick trip to Park City, Utah to ski with his family!
