History of Cottingham Chalk

Built on a foundation of integrity and trust, Cottingham Chalk has a long history of serving the Charlotte community.

From the beginning, our focus has been on people. Attracting the best brokers to build their careers under our roof and empowering them to provide excellent service to our community, and, in turn, attracting the best clientele to trust us to shepherd them through the process of buying or selling a home

We identify wonderful people and develop them into excellent real estate agents, not the other way around. Our focus on homegrown talent has created a collaborative environment where brokers work together, share ideas, and support each other – and our clients reap the benefits of working with agents who are their best selves. Our brokers start here, learn here, grow here and flourish here. They are leaders in our community and our industry.

Now, in our second generation of leadership, we are a family business more than ever. We help each other, we trust each other, we care about each other. When you work at Cottingham Chalk, you are part of the family. When you hire a Cottingham Chalk broker, you have the entire company in your corner.

As a local, independent company, we are free to focus on the big picture as opposed to next quarter’s numbers. We can stay the course when it is the right path, and we can adjust quickly when change is appropriate. As an exclusive member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®, we are equipped with market leading resources to serve our clients both locally and around the globe.
