Chappell Partners with Compass

At Chappell, we pride ourselves in being the best boutique brokerage in the Triangle, and today we’re excited to take the next step. We’re thrilled to announce that Chappell has partnered with Compass, the best boutique brokerage in the world. As one of the flagship teams and Compass Founders in North Carolina, we’re proud to be powered by such an established, innovative, and progressive brokerage. This partnership represents Compass’s first venture into the competitive NC market and Chappell’s first formal affiliation with a national real estate firm.

Compass is coming to the Triangle to raise the bar, and in doing so will rewrite the local real estate landscape. To have an opportunity to be a founding member in that venture is incredibly rewarding for all of us at Chappell.


Our companies are motivated by the same mission, from our focus on ethical and transparent transactions to our dedication to breaking the mold with our design, culture, and market value. Through this partnership, we will be better equipped to ensure our listings and clients are a priority in a competitive market.

“In meetings with Compass, it became clear that their values and vision aligned perfectly with what we’ve created at Chappell,” said Johnny Chappell, Owner/Broker. “Compass is a progressive, up-tempo, game-changing company that does things the right way. This partnership will allow our team to grow, without losing sight of what’s important. I told our team that this partnership marked the next step in our journey and a celebration of their hard work. Compass is coming to the Triangle to raise the bar, and in doing so will rewrite the local real estate landscape. To have an opportunity to be a founding member in that venture is incredibly rewarding for all of us at Chappell.”

Chappell has been one of the leading independent real estate firms in the Triangle. Led by top Triangle real estate broker and developer Johnny Chappell, the team has become closely associated with contemporary, new-construction development, and represents hundreds of buyers and sellers throughout the region. Our expert team notably launched and represented multiple award-winning properties throughout the Triangle – including the Clark Townhomes in The Village District and West + Lenoir in Downtown Raleigh. Chappell himself is ranked amongst the top 1% of brokers in the Triangle and boasts 15+ years of real estate industry experience.

“Our presence up and down the east coast continues to grow in 2021 with the addition of our first North Carolina market, Raleigh!” said Robert Reffkin, CEO of Compass. “Our growth into North Carolina is a natural step in the Compass expansion and I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome our first partners in NC.”

We’ve been asking people for years, why they #ChooseChappell – and Compass is no different. They chose Chappell because of our innovative marketing, expert sales team, and extensive experience in the Triangle market.
