Daniel Kastner
District 3

My wife and I have lived in Parkwood for over 6 years now and have enjoyed watching our neighborhood grow, change, and continually be maintained. Being involved on the board is important to me, and I’m excited at the opportunity to be a part of that change and the continual improvement of our district. Parkwood has become our home, our quiet place of retreat, and where my wife and I began our lives together.

When it comes to housework, yard work, or any type of home improvement project, I can be quite handy…. We’ve renovated our home entirely by ourselves and look to utilize those skills elsewhere in the community through volunteer events.

My hobbies and activities outside of work include woodworking, boating, cycling, house projects (never ending), and traveling. We’re also avid fans of the Durham Bulls and consider ourselves Caniacs.

Professionally I am a Sales Manager at a small, independently owned car dealership in Raleigh. We focus primarily on BMW and other European brands and have a great time (no minivans). I enjoy meeting new people everyday and marrying my passion of cars with my drive to help others.

I’m looking forward to serving our neighborhood and getting to meet the other members!

As a team player I am great with thinking outside of the box with creative ways to make things more efficient in processes and operations. My experience in business has been acknowledged in renowned business such as Forbes list 2021. My motivation for seeing on the board is driven by wanting to make Parkwood an even more great community to live in by bringing fun and innovative events that will bring the community together even more! I love the convenience, safeness, and friendly residents of this community. I own a chain of nail schools and nail salons franchise here in the USA and Africa called Trendy Nailz Institute and Trendy Nailz Salon.

I LOVE PARKWOOD! It's been home since I moved to NC in 2011, and although we've floated from house to house as our family expanded, we have remained faithful to Parkwood and all the joys it brings us! I like to think I'm paying back some of that joy by serving on the board, most of my volunteer work goes into the Finance Committee. On my off time I currently enjoy learning to knit/crochet, spending time with my husband and 2 kids, and working on our fixer upper!

My fiancé and I moved to Parkwood in July 2022 after I finished graduate school at UNC Chapel Hill, where I received my masters in City and Regional Planning! I’ve always been interested in being active within my community and I’m excited for the opportunity to work alongside neighbors in Parkwood. I currently work with communities across North Carolina to help them better prepare for natural hazards like flooding and hurricanes, so I’m very much in tune with listening and understanding the needs of others. We are excited that our first house is in Parkwood and we spend our free time learning how to improve our house and walking our dog!
