CORY CHAPMAN (Personal Real Estate Corporation)
Cory was born and raised on Vancouver Island and there is no place he’d rather live and raise his family. Cory currently resides in Nanaimo with his wife and their two young boys. He has two passions in life, his family and his business and strives for absolute perfection in both. In his spare time, he enjoys spending every moment involved with his wife and two young boys, as well as many recreational activities including hockey, golf, baseball, and volleyball. He also commits time to giving back to the community with volunteering with Thriftys foods and their program Sendial which helps people with their grocery shopping needs as well as volunteering with the Child Development Center.
Cory is also very passionate about his career, where he is striving to become recognized as one of the top REALTORS® in the business. Already in only a few short years in the business and with a low pressure yet high urgency, customer service approach, he is already well on his way to achieving this goal.
Cory has over 20 years of experience in customer service, 15 of those in management at McDonald's and one of the top Wireless Wave locations in BC, and brings a wealth of experience to his real estate business. He is patient, friendly, and relaxed in his approach to business, yet has a complete understanding of when to take action to help his clients achieve their needs.
In his first 5 years at RE/MAX of Nanaimo, Cory has already achieved great success, selling over 200 homes. He also received top producing awards from Remax and has excelled each year in the business achieving 100% Club for 2015, Platinum Club for 2016 and 2017, and a combined team award with Kelly Whitton achieving Chairman’s Club in 2017. Cory and Kelly also achieved Top 100 Teams in Western Canada multiple times in 2018 while only operating as a team of two.

Rob and his wife, Keely, moved to Nanaimo from the Lower Mainland in 2014 after looking at the market trends and deciding it would be a great place to buy a home and raise a family. They are thrilled to have since welcomed two amazing boys, Zane and Bodhi!
After almost twenty years of serving at some of Vancouver’s top restaurants and hotels, Rob decided to become a REALTOR®. He'd been recognized for his service excellence everywhere he’d worked, and real estate seemed like a logical extension and great way to continue providing his high service standards.
Also, as a former copywriter who’d run his own business for years, Rob is used to working one-on-one with clients, assessing their needs, and making sure they're happy with his end results.
Rob thinks these two career paths serve him very well as a REALTOR®, since you’ll get both amazing service and great communication!
In his free time, Rob enjoys poker, softball, and sampling the Island’s amazing local craft beer. He is also a big believer in giving back to his community, so Rob joined the Serauxmen, a local group that fundraises for children and families in need, and became a founding member of 100 Men Who Care Nanaimo, a group that fundraises for local charities.
Whether you’re buying or selling in Nanaimo, or relocating here like he did, Rob would love to help you out. Please get in touch today if you think he’d be a good fit as your REALTOR®. You can read some of his testimonials to see the nice things his clients have had to say about his service!
We moved to Vancouver Island 17 years ago from the sunny Okanagan. We fell in love with the stunning beauty of the sea and the sky. As an artist I find that the light really does have a different quality here. I find an endless amount of inspiration all around us in every season.
I have been in the service industry in many different aspects during my life. I started my professional life as a hair stylist, enjoying the fun and ever changing culture of salon life for 15 years, serving my clients with excellence and professionalism until becoming a stay at home Mom. This gave me the opportunity to volunteer in the school and the community, as well as a woman’s support group.
Joining the work force again as a personal stylist in the fashion industry, working closely with my clients with authenticity and integrity that has become my personal brand.
As a REALTOR® I bring the same commitment to personal service, as always going the distance for you in a time that can be emotional and stressful as well as exciting.
