After working for other Real Estate firms in the community for a number of years and hopefully acquiring sufficient knowledge, The Parhams decided to make a change. Named after the Majestic Oak Trees surrounding the Orange Park, FL community, Al & Lynn Parham founded River Oak Realty, Inc. in 1986. Two local builders trusted and believed in Al’s “vision” to own his own company some day, and entrusted the Parhams to continue being the sales reps for their subdivisions while starting up the company. Since that time, River Oak Realty has become a respected Company handling all aspects of the Real Estate Market bringing experience and commitment to every home sale or purchase. In 1987 the Property Management Division was formed to assist customers who needed rental property. River Oak Realty currently has nearly 500 homes in their rental inventory.

Owner Al Parham was on the board for the Clay County Association of REALTORS® for seven years and served as President of the Association in 1992.
