Lynne Parker Davis
Lynne has always envisioned herself as an entrepreneur. After graduating from LeMoyne College in 1978, she took MBA courses at Syracuse University in Entrepreneurial Sciences, wrote exploratory business plans for close to a dozen products/services, and walked on the cutting edge of process improvement and creativity in the corporate world. As a Realtor, Lynne envisioned a better way to capture buyers for her new construction listings — and so she created NterNow (formerly Call-A-Key) to satisfy the consumer’s need for self-service home touring.
As the patent holder for non-wireless secure real estate access, Lynne has grown NterNow to serve dozens of national and local new home builders in 16 states and is set to launch additional verticals in 2019. For her inventiveness, Lynne was nominated as one of the Top 15 Innovative Agents in the US by RIS Media in 2017. NterNow was honored with the National Association of Home Builders S.A.F.E. Innovation of the Year Award in 2017 for helping to make onsite agents’ work lives safer, and Atlanta Home Builder’s OBIE Gold award for Best Interactive Tool in 2016. Lynne is a member of the Advanced Technology Development Center of Georgia Tech, ACE Women’s Business Center and Atlanta Women in Technology.
Prior to her real estate career, Lynne spent 17 years in cable TV with Home Box Office (HBO), The Disney Channel, Cox Enterprises and NewChannels Corp. in regional marketing and sales training positions. She won a coveted Cable TV Association of Marketers award, achieved the Atlanta Real Estate Board’s Phoenix Award the first year of eligibility, and most importantly, has three delightful grandchildren a stone’s throw away from her home in Marietta Georgia.
Barrett’s passion for technology and entrepreneurship was sparked early on when he took NterNow to the finals of the UGA’s Next Top Entrepreneur competition. Graduating with a BS in Business-MIS, Barrett has never stopped learning, focusing on the latest tech developments and the ever-evolving business world of access and ID verification.
A prodigious talent for coding and team leadership, Barrett has never lost hackathon he’s entered, winning the prestigious ATDC FinTech Hack sponsored by WorldPay in 2017.
As CTO, Barrett leads the search for the right hardware, dev talent and investors for NterNow. Moving from the State Farm corporate world to a startup, Ware2Go (owned by UPS) in 2019, Barrett will continue to soak up tech dev skills and apply it to his inch-to-thousand-foot vision for NterNow.
An Air Force ‘brat’, Carey moved 12 times before graduating from Vanderbilt with an Engineering & Math degree. Post-college, Carey joined the Air Force to manage a missile development program and then hopped to the corporate world gaining production and inventory/service management expertise at The Jergens Company and Georgia Pacific. After raising two children (and moving another 8 times) she jumped back into the working world in real estate management.
Joining NterNow in 2018, Carey has become an integral part of implementing process and service improvements, hardware and software upgrades and integration, and handling the minute details that fall to her operation team to solve 24/7. She is engineering our national expansion, prepping us for 2019 scaling, and developing the path to reach our goal of being the only access-service builders will consider.
Her competitive nature is borne out of her lifelong love of tennis, where she is a member of USTA and the Atlanta Lawn Tennis Association. She shrugs off the stress of her ops position through her love of hiking and climbing the southeast ranges, and enjoying her college-age children as they enter the working and performing world.
As the 10th of 12 children, Laura has only known a life full of people and conversations. Customer service/inside sales was a natural career choice for her after graduating from Tulane. After spending 5 years with Georgia Pacific as an inside sales rep in their paper division, Laura left the corporate world to raise her family but always managed to be in volunteer roles that involved lots of people and plenty of conversations. She co-chaired the neighborhood swim team, was Social Chair for her neighborhood HOA and volunteered as docent at a local historic home. Yes, all required LOTS of people skills and conversation.
Easing back into the working world, Laura became an associate at Pottery Barn and then an inside sales associate for a Realtor group. She joined the NterNow team in December of 2018 as the company’s first Customer Care Specialist. She enjoys reaching out to NterNow clients, learning about their business and their needs, and how we can help clients sell homes faster.
When she is not working, Laura enjoys playing tennis and spending time with LOTS of family and friends.
