Chappell [Powered by Compass] was recently honored with the Team Diamond Circle Award at Compass NC’s First Anniversary Celebration. The Diamond Circle Award recognizes the firm’s 75M+ generated in 2021 production – attributable largely to the volume of new development Chappell is helping to bring to the Triangle market. 

Our firm’s success is a direct result of combining dedicated experts with empowered creatives, each working to deliver an exceptional client experience.”

The Chappell team, helmed by Johnny Chappell, has seen substantial growth in the previous years. Notably, the brokerage brought on multiple new Triangle agents, continued to grow its C-suite leadership team and expanded its in-house marketing agency to collaborate with clientele inside and outside of the real estate space.

All of these factors contribute to the team’s Triangle impact. However, it’s impossible to separate the firm’s success from the real drivers of its momentum: the commitment to clients showcased by Chappell professionals and its extensive network of area partners.

“First and foremost, I need to recognize the hours of hard work that made this Diamond Circle Award possible,” states Chappell. “Our firm’s success is a direct result of combining dedicated experts with empowered creatives, each working to deliver an exceptional client experience. We mean it when we invite our community to experience real estate differently. From strategic insight to local-savvy, our clients can trust Chappell agents execute efficiently and effectively.” 

As owner and founder, Chappell has overseen his namesake brokerage’s transition into a top-performing Triangle firm. However, Chappell’s influence isn’t limited to his team. His Compass peers widely applaud his solution-driven mindset and innovative vision. This reputation ultimately earned Chappell the 2021 Dream Big CEP Award – presented to the founder alongside the firm’s aforementioned Diamond Circle Award on May 10th.

“Big picture – we’ve found that the best way to stand out in our competitive Triangle market is to BYOI, bring your own inventory,” continues Chappell. “We’re seeing unprecedented demand for new residential living – but the reality is our supply is fairly stretched. That’s why we’re working to bring 200+ homes to the Triangle area before the end of this year, plus 200+ more in 2023. We know this is far from a full-fledged solution; however, our firm is proud to pioneer future communities and provide homes for those putting down roots in NC.” 

The Compass Entrepreneurial Principles Awards acknowledge agency partners in the Triangle network who best embody the core values of Compass culture. Compass peers nominated agency partners and awarded based on the number of nominations received.
