  • Jim Parker is Fantastic! (2022)


    Jim Parker is Fantastic! He diligently responded to my inquiry about needing some help to find my lost wedding ring. I gave him the parameters that I had lost it playing sports on a soccer field. It seemed like it was going to be a daunting task as I had already searched for 3 plus hours on my own to find my ring. He agreed to meet before his work and moved things around in his schedule to accommodate me and met me early the next day I contacted him. We spent over and hour with no results. As my hope was starting to wane, he began to search a spot I felt like I had gone over a bunch of times because it was where I had felt that I lost the ring initially. With his great knowledge and understanding he used his metal detector and scanned a spot that he felt might be something.. he lifted up the grass and there was my ring! I was beyond ecstatic! I just thought id never find it again! It means a lot to both my wife and I. It was made in my hometown in Hawaii. If you lose a ring and need some help! ASK Jim! He will help you!
