A Message from Our Team

“For more than three years now, each month I’ve been greeting our community of readers as the spokesperson for our publication.  But it takes a team to build this publication and bring it to our community every month, and I’d like to capture everybody’s voice in introducing what’s happening around our office, with the paper, and in our community. 

In addition to hearing from me exclusively, we’ve decided to begin incorporating messages from all of the team members who make up the culture of the Coastal Insider.  We’re kicking off this new direction with a message this month from my daughter, Megan Parker.  Megan is the one who created the paper with me and my business partner, John Jobson, back in 2016.  Today, she works as the creative director.” 

– Jim Parker    Co-Owner, Coastal Insider & President, Real Living Home Realty Group

“I’ve been a professional photographer for fifteen years.  In my work, I make relationships with my subjects behind a camera lens, and then express that in the best light via the photographs that accompany the articles. 

This year’s front page story about Savannah’s Playground was a real gift for me to shoot.  Three years ago, I photographed Savannah Thompson and the playground right around my birthday, and this year, I photographed it again, almost at the exact same time.

The playground is really cutting edge, and it’s a blessing that we have this here.  It’s a fully inclusive playground for children and adults of all abilities.  Photographing it, I could feel the heart and intention of inclusivity, and at a time when so much feels divided in our country, I’m proud to see this in our city.  It further illustrates the compassion and the causes that we stand behind in our community, as a community.  We hope you enjoy our front page feature story, and everything else, that we, as a team, have put together for you this month.”

– Megan Parker    Creative Director, Coastal Insider

At one o’clock and two-seconds later, there’s a call.  I’m in a classroom and an announcement comes in: “Will Mr. Davis please come in.”  Now in the Navy, they don’t call you ‘Mr.’ unless you’re an officer, going to jail, or something good happened.  So I get in there, …
