Elyse Appelmann


Born and raised in Cary, I’m excited to be working with a team like Chappell to develop my city. I’ve been fortunate to have several careers over the years and wear many hats (peep the ears for proof 😉 ). I’ve fine-tuned my skills to become the best realtor and asset for clients I can be.

I’ve always gravitated to relationship-building roles, preferring personal connections to cold calling. I love taking a hands-on approach and utilizing the power of digital promotion to maximize the audience on any project I’m representing. My unique eye as a realtor stems from my architectural background. I understand the ins & outs of every home, and my insight and dedication to transparent transactions ensure my clients are knowledgeable about their home and confident throughout an unfamiliar buying process.

When I’m not meeting with clients or showing properties, I try to stay as spontaneous as possible! Gardening, hiking, and playing with my adorable pups, I try to stay active and outside. It’s not out of the ordinary for me to travel on a whim and explore a new city. It’s all about adventure and searching for inspiration.

ELYSE's Clients

"I Was Aware of Every New Listing the Day it Hit Market!"

"Elyse went above and beyond for me during my property search. She made sure I was aware of every new listing the day it hit the market and was able to provide me with all of the property information I needed to make sure I was making a good investment. Aside from her staying on top of everything I needed to invest in a property, Elyse is one of the kindest people you will ever meet. I really hope I can work with her again as I look to purchase my next property and I would recommend anyone else to do the same."
