Our goal is to always focus on you! Once engaged, we find out your needs, your desires, and your vision and do our best to help you find your dream home. We have the experience and market knowledge to help you develop a plan of action. We listen and ask questions to help provide direction to your home ownership.
Having a financial plan and source of funds in place to be able to move quickly and confidently is a must to increase the probability of having your offer accepted once you find your dream home, often in a competing offer environment. We can help you through the process of understanding the importance of pre-qualification and proof of funds. If you do not have a lender, we can provide our list of preferred lenders for you to interview.
This is the fun part! But without the right guidance and right approach, it can be overwhelming. We help you narrow the focus of your search to increase the efficiency and reduce the amount of time required to find your new home.
We are experienced in the offer process and in helping you negotiate terms of purchase. This process can be complicated and the written contract forms and any required addendum need to be explained, completed, and presented timely. Many offers are negotiated in a competitive environment and having everything in place and ready to present is extremely important and we are serious about making that happen.
Once an offer has been accepted by seller, it is important to have an experienced realtor to assist in working through all the moving parts of the contract. We are there for you through option periods to property inspections and understanding how your offer interfaces with title companies, lenders, and other outside parties and vendors. We regularly monitor the progress of the transaction, do all we can to prevent unnecessary delays or unwanted surprises, and keep you fully informed.
We join you in the final walk through and help you prepare for closing to make sure it occurs as smoothly as possible. We also make a practice of attending each closing to help resolve issues that may arise during closing. We are as excited as our clients when the key to their new home is presented!
I have known Steve Chapman both professionally and socially since 1977. Being a banking and finance attorney, I advised him in a professional capacity throughout his executive banking career and from the inception of his real estate endeavors to the present. I have only known Steve to conduct himself with a high degree of integrity and honesty, exercising sound judgement in his clients’ behalf.

We had numerous offers on our home after only two weeks of being on the market. Chapman Realty Group was extremely knowledgable and knows the real estate market. They priced our home perfectly and we were still able to get an offer over asking price. At the same time, we were able to purchase our next home for far below the asking price. Timing was perfect and the Chapman Realty Group made it all happen for us. We couldn’t be happier with our experience and recommend them to all our friends and family!
Steve Chapman jumped into a difficult situation when agreeing to sell a house in a very good neighborhood that needed many updates. He knew who to call for work estimates, what to do to increase the value and when to put the house on the market. He and Philly were willing to meet anytime and worked together to market the property by securing an excellent sales price.
Steve and Philly have now assisted us through the sale of one home and the purchase of two homes. Our experience was absolutely phenomenal! They know the market, and truly help through the buying and selling process in every capacity. I would (and do) recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. We are definitely their clients for life!
