Charles Umstead

VP Developer Services
Chappell [Powered by COMPASS]

As an invested member of the Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS®, I have a drive for advocacy and currently serve on both the Government Policy and Issues Committee (GPIC) and REALTOR PAC Committee (RPAC). I am seeking a seat on the RRAR Board of Directors to help my peers and our industry thrive in a technologically oriented environment.

While a student at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I received my broker’s license and have been in the business ever since. From national brokerages to boutique firms, the last ten years have provided me the opportunity to learn from industry leaders in both the general brokerage and developer services sectors.

I currently serve in a leadership capacity as Vice President of Developer Services for Chappell [Powered by Compass] helping to grow our team while also working with developer clients to find creative ways to provide additional inventory throughout the Triangle. Outside of Chappell and my volunteer leadership commitments, I am an avid tennis player and love exploring new restaurants and cocktail bars throughout North Carolina.
