Harold Chappell

    • Harold Chappell and the NextHome team have been a more than pleasant experience to work with while purchasing my first home. I couldn't have asked for a more experienced and knowledgeable agent. He went above and beyond to make my purchase successful. He offered great advice and knowledge as I am new to the area. I'm so happy to be in Wilmington and have Harold as my friend and neighbor.

    • Harold and his staff helped us through the delicate process of selling with a Short Sale. It was a painstaking process, confusing at times, and the bank made it very difficult for us, but there was no end to Harold's patience and expertise. After completing our home sale I would recommend Harold and his team with the highest possible amount of confidence to lead you through your realty experience.

      - Geoff Gorski
    • Harold and his team went above and beyond what we had expected. They took us through the whole process and made it as painless as possible. We used Harold and his team member (Anna Clark) for both the sale of our home and the new purchase of our 2nd home. We could not have asked for a more professional, courteous, and dedicated team to help us in one of the most important decisions in our life! I will recommend Harold and his team to any of my friends looking to buy or sell their property in the Wilmington area.

      - Aaron
    • A very professional team. Harold stated that he thought he could sell our house and he did it.He truly does his best to make sure that he gets the best deal for you. Thank you team Chappell for getting the job done and selling our house.

      - Cory McCormack
    • Our family recently bought and sold a house thru Harold's next home team, and all I can saw is Wow.... With so many realty companies and so many realtors to choose from out there Harold and his team really stood above the others. I would highly recommend Harold to anyone how is looking for a honest, intelligent realtor with a truly superior team behind him to help them buy or sell a home. This was not my first dealing with Harold and I have to say that the second and third experience got better from an already great first experience. The marketing was outstanding and drew people to look at our house for sale. It was so good that we basically had committed buyers from out of state that had not even been to our home in person before they were ready to buy. Harold made us feel like he was on our side of any dealings with the other parties, and that is a rare commodity with realtors today. Harold and his team made us feel so comfortable with the process of buying and selling a home, and having him and his team lifted a lot of the stress from our family. I would again highly recommend this excellent realtor to anyone with the highest regards.

    • Have worked with Harold in the past with great results. He has sold two homes for me and did so in a very short order of time. Now he has sold my present home and found and advised me on my new purchase as well! Don't know of any other agent that can top that record. Don't even mind the sales fee I pay him because he earned every penny. If trust and hard work is needed call Harold.

      - Leonard Lane
    • My wife and I had a condo at Wrightsville Beach, and we began to seriously look for a house with at least four bedrooms and on water. We located a house and contacted the listing agent, Harold Chappell. While looking at this house, it became apparent that my wife and I bonded with Harold very quickly. He patiently showed us a number of properties on the beach, and we finally found one that fit our needs. Much later when we decided to sell, we engaged Harold and he again got the job done to our complete satisfaction. He guided us well, yet never was pushy-a true professional.

      - Jerry West
