Kalpna Jean Patel


I’ve held many positions in my career, but Kalpna Jean Patel Real Estate Agent is my favorite thus far. Born and raised in Birmingham, England, and now living in Raleigh’s Village District – I’m a globe-trotting go-getter who understands the value of a place to call home. 

As a greater Raleigh real estate agent, the relationships that I’ve built have defined my career. Years of renovation experience & residential energy exploration developed my keen eye for opportunity: from broader buying/selling advice to more specialized insight surrounding urban development or historic tax credits. 

While others are motivated by profit, I’m proud to say my dedication to helping, protecting, and serving my clients & community with integrity has never steered me wrong.

My extensive sales background has culminated in multiple professional honors & certificates of achievement. However, I’ve always defined my success by the level of service I offer others. After working with Johnny and the Chappell team on several occasions and being impressed by their level of detailed professionalism, I’m excited to join a brokerage doing so much to empower agent success and deliver exceptional client experiences.  

When I’m not in the office – I’m out exploring! My wanderlust has inspired many adventures: walking the Great Wall of China (in heels!), climbing Machu Picchu (without water), and more! Now that I’ve settled in the Triangle, I spend my days bopping around to different breweries, playing with my pups, and enjoying family.

"Her Negotiation Skills Secured Me One of the Best Deals."

I highly recommend Kalpna as a realtor. She's exceptional, providing unwavering support and going above and beyond throughout the home-buying process. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and commitment to clients set her apart. Kalpna's negotiation skills secured me one of the best deals for what I was looking for. Her extensive network ensured a stress-free transaction, despite me having a little hiccup with my lender. If you're looking for a skilled and caring real estate professional, choose Kalpna for a successful and seamless experience.

"She Exceeded My Expectations in Every Area."

"This is the second time I've used Kalpna, and just like the first time, she exceeded my expectations in every area. This purchase was new construction, and since it was the first time, she walked me through the whole process from picking the lot, picking options on the house, upgrades, communication with the builders, issues, and so much more. Without her help, the whole new construction process would have been very overwhelming, but thanks to her, it wasn't. I couldn't have asked for a more friendly, detail-oriented, driven, and passionate person when it comes to helping you find/build the perfect house!"

"She is Immensely Experienced, Organized and Dedicated."

"If you are looking to buy a house in the greater triangle area - one of the hottest housing markets in the country - Kalpna is who you need. She is immensely experienced, organized, and dedicated. Two and a half weeks after working with Kalpna, we bought the house of our dreams at a bargain price. She was able to organize a viewing even before the house was officially open for visits, which meant that we were one of the first people to see the house and put down an offer. She held our hand through the many (often complicated) steps that took us from making an offer to getting the keys to the house. With her guidance and impressive negotiation skills, we even managed to come in under budget! To top it all off, Kalpna is so lovely; she made what could have been a painful experience an adventure. We feel incredibly lucky to have had her as our realtor."

"One Should Consider Themself Lucky if They Get to Work with Kalpna".

"One should consider themself lucky if they get to work with Kalpna. Not only is she knowledgable, highly-skilled and professional, she is also incredibly genuine. She was endlessly patient and gracious as we searched for the right home for me. I felt that I could ask her anything—there were no stupid questions—which for a first-time, single home-buyer, was invaluable. She presented facts in an unbiased and straightforward manner while simultaneously sharing insights and sincere opinions to help me make a decision. I never felt pressured. She's so hard-working—a memory comes to mind of her crouching down in the mud to peek into a crawl space while wearing the most delicate heels—now that was commitment! Highly recommend."

"She's Been With Us Through Two Home Sales & Two Home Purchases"

"Kalpna is fantastic, and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She's been with us through 2 home sales and 2 home purchases. Neither of them was my first, but there's always something that comes up in each sale or purchase. I would have been lost without her expertise in navigating the deadlines, contracts, negotiations, and overall process. She has helped us consistently find the best home for our family. My kids and I love her!"
