“We are honored to be recognized in the large team category as the number one real estate team in the Triangle and the number two team in North Carolina,” said Johnny Chappell, Owner/Broker of Chappell [Powered By Compass]. “I already know our experts are the best in the business, but this kind of confirmation from an industry-leading firm like RealTrends is beyond validating.

The Chappell team’s ongoing collaborations with local homebuilding experts have propelled the team to new heights. In the last year, the firms have expanded Missing Middle Housing opportunities across Greater Raleigh, providing hundreds of homeowners the chance to put down roots in the communities they love.

Missing Middle collections like Lake Johnson’s Wrenwood, 26 duet-style residences on the cusp of ITB Raleigh, and The Forest on Franklin, 11 craftsman-style townhomes in Downtown Wake Forest, have been praised by homebuyers for their convenient locales, contemporary styling and high-quality construction. Chappell and its development partners believe residential, new construction plays a pivotal role in supplying much-needed in-fill inventory to the growing Triangle market, and the firms are proud their collaboration is making high-quality, low-maintenance homes accessible to clients across all different price points, locales and build types.

As the Chappell team continues to welcome new agents and grow its award-winning Raleigh brokerage, it remains committed to expanding its impact across the Triangle region.
