Over the years, Linda Rike and Ed Daughety have reached a conclusion. They love being near the water, any type of water—a wide expanse of ocean, a peaceful waterway, a favorite fishing spot. It’s something about the smell of the salt air. Or perhaps it’s the sounds of waves crashing on the shoreline or a baited line and hook breaking a glassy surface at daybreak. You might be surprised to find that the emphasis Linda and Ed place on the importance of water in their own lives doesn’t stop at the coastline.

This Couple Understands That Water Is Critical in so many aspects of life—gardening, cooking and bringing to fruition everything from flowers to sandcastles. Linda and Ed also understand that adding water to your lifestyle can have an uplifting effect on you. That’s one reason they have lived in Carteret County for so long. They appreciate the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean and the many waterways that ribbon the Crystal Coast area. It’s the perfect place to satisfy Ed’s love of fishing and Linda’s desire to catch gorgeous sunsets every time she has the opportunity.

As longtime area residents and real estate professionals, they offer you the most comprehensive and knowledgeable guidance around when it comes to adding water to your own lifestyle—whether it’s in the form of a waterfront home or just moving you close enough to the coast to go boating or fishing or to catch a spectacular sunset every day.

Dick Parker made his way to the Crystal Coast from Mount Olive selling candy and watermelons out of the back of a pickup truck when the depression years sent him out looking for work. In 1947, he opened up his first car dealership in downtown Morehead City near the present day yacht basin. Embracing his new hometown and its passion for fishing, Dick and four other local businessmen, which would soon be known as the Fabulous Fisherman's Club, started the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, which at that time lasted the entire summer. The Parker Automotive group is proud to continue his legacy and tradition of supporting the charitable efforts of the tournament and the excitement surrounding reeling in the big one!
