A little bit about me…
I was born and raised in Mission BC, a small town in the Fraser Valley. I grew up on a dairy farm so I learned early in life that nothing meaningful happens without applying some hard work.
I am a graduate of the University of British Columbia and hold a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, Department of Food Science.
After graduating, I took a job in the food processing industry with Labatt Brewing Company and was transferred to Winnipeg.
I began my Real Estate career in 1977.
Becky and I were married in 1980, we have two sons, Brad & Andrew. Becky joined me in Real Estate in 1997. Since then, Garry Parkes & Associates was established adding our son Brad to the team. Alix McIntyre works along side us, she is a licensed REALTOR® as well is our office manager.
I have sold over 4000 homes in Winnipeg in my career.

Becky became a licensed sales person in 1996 after having spent 20 years in the catering, food shop and restaurant business. After spending a few years helping Garry with administration and business development, Becky decided to concentrate on doing what she does best, working with people.
For over 20 years Becky has focused on helping buyers in all aspects of Real Estate and complimenting the team with an enthusiastic approach to working with our clients. Client service is first and foremost, and no one does it better than Becky. Becky also has a SRES (senior real estate specialist) designation, helping people in all types of transition housing.
Following graduation from the University of Winnipeg, with his degree in Kinesiology and Certification in Athletic Therapy, Brad spent 3 years as a personal trainer and athletic therapist.
Having grown up around the real estate business and working with people on a personal and professional basis, becoming a Realtor was a natural progression.
