Meet the Co-Founder and President

Ke Qin, president, and co-founder started Paros Group in 2017 after a 12-year engineering career. Ke first created his niche in the Gulch specializing in high-end modern homes with downtown views. The quality of homes quickly caught the attention of investors and agents who help fuel the company’s rapid growth. Since its inception, Paros Group has completed over 200 homes in Davidson County, primarily in the Gulch, 12th S, Green Hills, East Nashville, Nations, Sylvan Park, and South Nashville.


As the president, Ke oversees land acquisitions, due diligence, development, and construction. Ke’s technical background helped to create robust systems and processes. His in-depth development and construction knowledge is delivering some of the best homes for middle Tennessee


“In the in-fill world, every piece of land has its own shape, topography, and zoning restrictions, therefore every house needs to be custom-designed to achieve the highest and best use for the property and neighborhood.” Ke says, “We pour our hearts into it and the results are seen in final products.”

Meet the Co-Founder and Head of Design

In 2014, Rachel and Ke purchased their first flip home in East Nashville. For the next few years, they worked on renovating houses on nights and weekends, while working 9-5 jobs during the day. As Paros Group moved into the new-build space and gained momentum in the Nashville market, Rachel decided to leave her corporate career to join Paros Group full-time in 2019. Her passion for home building runs deep - Rachel’s grandfather was a home builder in a small town in Tennessee and she has many fond memories as a young girl walking job sites with him and seeing the build process firsthand. 

Rachel spends countless hours alongside Ke discussing and planning development opportunities, pouring over architecture drawings, and visualizing how each home needs to look and feel once it’s all completed. Most days you will find her in the field walking jobs to oversee everything from framing layouts, electric, HVAC, and plumbing rough ins, all the way through to the final phase ensuring her overall vision of each home is carried through to the very end. Rachel’s keen attention to detail is evident when you walk into a Paros home and see all the design elements fitting perfectly together. 

“I pour my heart and soul into each one of our projects as if it were going to be my own. I look for little ways to make each home special in its own way – from unique trim designs, distinct paint accents, or the perfect lighting fixture – all so that the homeowner has a well thought out beautifully designed space to call their own”. 

Meet the Head of Operations and Sales

Brought up in Arkansas in a family that owned a real estate inspection business, Alicia spent childhood summers walking through and sometimes crawling under houses with her father. She was always interested in why and how things came together and why they failed to work properly when inspecting homes.  After graduating from the University of Central Arkansas, Alicia took over the family business and added administrative and training services to teach new home inspectors alongside herself and her father.

With a background in real estate home inspections, both commercial and residential, it was only natural for her to begin a career in residential construction. Her husband's job brought them to Nashville where the tremendous growth in the area meant quality control in construction was greatly needed.

As Head of Operations and Sales for Paros Group, Alicia is responsible for the oversight of every aspect of development and construction. She is deeply involved from land acquisition to closing, and works closely with each project manager and the design team to ensure quality at every stage of development.

With her passion for quality and efficiency, Alicia is the ideal person to partner with the prospective homeowner and introduce them to the Paros Difference. She enjoys meeting each buyer and walking them through the closing process. From the inspection report, blue tape walk, and all the way to the final walk through, she’s there to ensure a smooth process and make sure all questions are being answered.

“Purchasing a home is such an emotional process. I want to build and be a part of something that speaks to those emotions, that’s what we do here at Paros. I get the privilege of meeting our buyers and watching them fall in love with our homes.”
