"Ala led us through a long search for just the right house. She is knowledgeable about neighborhoods, home construction and all aspects of real estate. She demonstrated much patience with us choosy buyers. She also helped us avoid several potential mistakes."
Allen and Diane LaRoche
"My husband and I recently purchased our first house with the help of Craig Chappelear and his team. They made the purchase super easy and not nearly as stressful as we thought it would be. It was such a relief to work with a great team of people that really wanted to help us find a house. I would highly recommend them to anyone! They are the best!"
Austin and Alyssa Boss
"Ala knows exactly what she's doing! She gets the job done! I highly recommend her to anyone selling. We will be using Ala again in the future! Her team also helped us find a house to buy. We had a great experience with the whole process of selling and buying with this team."
"We had been searching for another home for about 6 months. We wanted one with the exterior maintenance handled by the HOA and Ala suggested the Ravines. When a few listings became available, she knew exactly which one we were going to choose before we did. She made the offer, negotiated the contract, and handled everything electronically. Now, we had to list our house! She described it perfectly in the MLS write-up, had a real pro take some excellent photos, and the results were astonishing. In a matter of two weeks we had more hits and more saves than homes listed for several months. We had two showings and a contract within the following week. Thanks to Ala and her team, we're in our new home and our buyer is in her new home! What a PRO!"
Wayne and Yvonne Conover
"Ala and her team are first class. Professional, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and patient come to mind. Ala was always available to give advice/answer questions and it was very much appreciated. I can't recommend her enough!"
"This is our second home we have purchased and our first home we have sold through Ala Chappelear and her team. My wife and I couldn't have asked for a better experience."
"Ala came highly recommended so I had her list and sell my home, she also helped me purchase my second home. Both she and Jill answered all my questions and took me to see several homes until I found what I wanted. She suggested I do back to back closings. It worked our perfectly. Once my offer was accepted, Ala took the reins and had the attorney lined up, the house inspected, and all the repairs completed. She is a very skilled Realtor and I would recommend her to everyone."
"We are first time homeowners, and we worked with Craig Chappelear as our agent, and he was AMAZING. Craig and the team at Keller Williams went above and beyond to make this process go smoothly and make our home buying experience great! Craig was great to work with and we would highly recommend Keller Williams to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!!"
John and Megan Bates
"We recently sold our home and we were over-the-top pleased with Ala and her team. We have highly recommended her several times already and will continue to do so. Some highlights that stuck out to us were her: accessibility/promptness, thorough knowledge on all aspects of the market, buying/selling/staging with professional photographer, and overall often saw her going the extra mile. We felt well taken care of and always in the loop. When we buy again, we will certainly call Ala."
"Ala helped me to locate and purchase my home in 2007. Then, in 2015, I relocated for work and Ala sold my home while I worked out of town. She handled negotiations, contractors, and everything else that I was unable to do myself. She is an amazing agent and true professional. Her team was exceptional with communication and a pleasure to work with."
"I had two houses to sell. One had been on the market for over a year with another agent. Ala gave me advice on realistic prices and sold both houses for me in a relatively short period of time. She and her team were very efficient and extremely helpful throughout the process. I would heartily recommend them to anyone in the market."
"We interviewed several Realtors before speaking with Ala Chappelear. Two minutes after meeting Ala, we knew we had the right person to sell our home. Ala is professional, intelligent and at the same time, very charming. She and her team quickly responded to every question that came up during our process. She left no stone unturned. When you care deeply about the home you are selling, you want an individual you can trust. We knew not only could Ala sell our home, but we could trust her to get us the best, fair price. We also need to add that Ala sold our home very, very quickly and for a price we were very happy with. We highly recommend Ala and her team."
Pat and Sandra Radican
"Ala was a pleasure to work with for the house buying process. She is very professional, prompt with email/text/phone responses, and knowledgeable with real estate processes/paper work. I am very picky when it comes to who I trust and who I would like to represent me. Ala fit the profile perfectly, and I am glad I chose her because she exceeded my expectations by going over and beyond her job duties/requirements. I would HIGHLY recommend her to others for/as a Realtor."
"Jill Morgano and Craig Chappelear worked diligently to refine our criteria to help us find a home. Craig was patient, knowledgeable and helpful leading us through the entire process of a home purchase. He and the staff provided needed and wanted information at every juncture, going above and beyond in each instance. He has also made us feel welcome in this new community, providing history, shopping and other information. We are very grateful."
Merl and Judy Bradley
"Craig Chappelear was our buying agent on the purchase of our first home. Every member of their team was a joy to work with, extremely knowledgeable, and prompt. Since we have never been through this process before, we put all of our trust on them and we were not disappointed! I highly recommend working with this team for all of your real estate needs!"
Suzanne and Andrew Aldridge
"Ala is very dedicated and a hard worker. We told her we were ready to sell, she got it on the market for us quick. it was sold in 3 weeks!! I was shocked and so excited at the same time. I would definitely refer her with buying or selling your home. If I ever had any questions or concerns, she was very prompt with getting back to me! I thank her so much for selling our first home and will use her in the future with buying/selling!
Carly & Timothy Smith
"Ala was very helpful throughout the buying process until the closing. She and her staff member, Jill, both helped me to buy a new house. They are very professional in their job and very easy to communicate with. I strongly recommend them as your Realtors. Since I am a first time home buyer, I had to get more help from Ala and the team to find an attorney and inspector, etc. They did a wonderful job in everything. Thanks, Ala and team!"
"Chappelear and Associates helped us sell our home quickly and efficiently. Ala and Jill were always professional and on time. I found Chappelear and Associates on Zillow by seeking the best rated agents in the area, and I'm glad I did!! They lived up to their reputation, If I could give 10 Stars I would! We had to move early and they helped us through the process including going through the home after every showing to make sure all the doors were locked and lights were out. Very courteous, knowledgeable and professional!"
"Our house was on the market for eight months with another agent. There were only four showings during that entire time. We decided we needed a new agent and called Ala's office. The one thing I loved about Ala was she was honest and straightforward with us about what we should expect our house to sell for. It was a little tough to hear, but we knew she was right. She sent a professional photographer to our house to take amazing pictures. We immediately had showings and our house sold within three months. I highly recommend Ala and her team to anyone wanting to sell their house."
Sharlie and Benjamin Grier
"Ala is an amazing agent! She really knows her clients and what they are looking for! She is very knowledgeable about the real estate industry! I am a return client for her and will continue to be if I ever need to sell my home again!"
Haley and Blake Daniel
"Ala and Craig are top notch at their jobs. They know what they are doing. Their use of technology to give their clients the best service is superb. Ala has great suggestions that really work to help make your home more marketable. I have known Ala for about 15 years and will always trust her to help us out in real estate matters."
Michelle and Derrick Brooks
"We were very pleased with Ala and her team. She made helpful suggestions, did everything quite professionally, and was always accessible whenever we had a questions. She also had a wealth of knowledge when it came to the house inspection I highly recommend using her."
"If you are looking for an agent in the Anderson/Clemson area, look no further. Craig and Ala are the most honest and dependable agents out there. Their knowledge of the area, the housing market, and homes/lots are unparalleled. And when our home sellers lost their minds (hey, it happens), the Chappelear helped them find it and kept our deal together. Could not be happier. We are extremely grateful for all their time and attention. Best Realtors ever!!!!"
"Ala has been extremely professional throughout the entire process. She is a very intuitive and intelligent agent. We sold our house for exactly the price we wanted. She never saw the negatives in our home, but was always positive and motivated. Her support staff is amazing."
Michael and Jill Burriss
"Craig Chappelear was our buying agent. My husband and I were very impressed with the knowledge and contact information Craig shared with us. We were very comfortable purchasing our newest home having Craig at our side to answer any of our questions. Ala was a big help in information on getting our old home ready for sale. We were so impressed she is now our listing agent. We know she will get our house sold quickly. God brings the right people into your life when you need them. We are extremely happy with the Chappelear team and HIGHLY recommend them to our friends and anyone who might be buying or selling their home."
Dixie and Derek Trent
"Our experience with Ala wad very positive. She is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Full of great ideas and good advice. Thanks for all your help, Ala!!"
Scott and Debbie Carson
"Ala is very connected, knowledgeable and honest about her listings. Walking through my house for the first time she immediately knew people who would be interested, and after the papers were signed, she started making phone calls from my driveway. My home was under contract in six days! We had a unique situation present just before closing, and Ala handled it with the utmost professionalism and grace. I really appreciate her guidance in navigating what become uncertain waters, but ended in selling my home to the perfect buyer!"
"I am truly grateful to Ala and her team, especially Rachel. I live in NY and inherited property in SC. Ala and staff took care of all the transactions, inspections, repairs, etc. They were able to take care of closing without my having to attend. It was the smoothest closing I have had to date...no surprises at the last minute. Again, I am truly grateful for all their support guidance. I would highly recommend using them."
"We had a wonderful home buying experience using Craig and Ala! Thank you so much for helping us with the purchase of our first home!! They were very knowledgeable and were available at any times convenient to our busy schedules."
Michael and Katie Wieneke
"I moved to my new home three and a half hours away at the start of the listing. Ala and her office staff kept me informed during every step of the sale process. Her professionalism and knowledge kept me calm and confident. Her sale plan worked and I am very happy. I would recommend her to anyone who wants an agent to get results."
"Ala was able to handle my realty needs expertly and efficiently. We moved out of the area and Ala and her staff took complete care as they handled everything for me without a second thought. The headache free ease that they brought into the process was fantastic. I would recommend them again and again."
"My experience with Ala and her entire team was truly exceptional. I am incredibly thankful for Ala's attentive listening in our first meeting. She found a home that is full of historical character and that provides access to things I enjoy for recreation. Additionally, the communication between Ala and her staff, myself, and the seller (who Ala's team also represented) was candid, prompt, and respectful.
Perhaps the most noteworthy part of my experience was Ala's advocacy when extensive damage on the home occurred due to an unforeseeable event of nature. This delayed closing while repairs were conducted. Ala exceeded any Realtor's obligations by finding my brother and me a furnished home to rent as our apartment lease ended before the repairs were finished.
Many thanks to Ala, Craig, Jill, Rachel, and all others involved in my first home-buying adventure. My house is darling and it truly feels like home. I would not have found it without you all."
"Ala listed our house and sold it in 30 minutes! We couldn't have been more thrilled with the quick smooth sale of our home. Craig kindly showed us MANY homes in the evenings and weekends, when our schedule best allowed without any issues. After finding a home, Craig even entertained our kids while we met with a contractor. We would definitely recommend this team to all of our family and friends, and will use them in the future when we buy or sell again. "
Kyle and Ashley Anderson
"Ala and her team at Keller Williams have been wonderful to us! We just closed on our new house and they were great at responding quickly to my questions and needs as a first time home buyer!!! Anytime I needed them to check on something for me it was done immediately with no waiting. We love our new home and look forward to making many memories in the years to come!!! Thanks guys for an easy transition!!"
Jada and Travis Brown
"Much thanks to Ala and Craig for finding us our "forever" home! The process from contract to closing was as painless as possible, and they made sure that everything went smoothly. Their team is top-notch and answered all our questions quickly and thoroughly. We have already recommended them to our friends who are selling/buying. Highly recommend!"
Wendy and Ken Brooks
"Ala and her Team were great to work with in a purchase of an investment property in Anderson SC. During the process, I received numerous updating phone calls regarding the subject property transaction. I would highly recommend Ala and her team!!!!"
"I highly recommend Ala and Craig Chappelear (and team)!! Craig was excellent regarding showing our house and then in turn showing us a house my wife and I both liked!! I could not be happier with our service, the sales process and closing, everything was top notch. If you are looking to sale or buy a house in Anderson, Ala and Craig are the ones to use!!"
Ryan and Lindsey Twitty
"When we decided to relocate from PA to SC, we contacted Craig Chappelear. Even though we were from out of state, he treated us like we were neighbors. He helped us find our new home and negotiated an excellent deal on our behalf. Craig also took the time to show us around Anderson and even took us on a tour inside the new YMCA. He made us feel as though we were locals instead of outsiders. Thank you so much for your professionalism and thank you for welcoming us to your city; which is our new city."
Tony and Regina Fubio
"My house was on the market for a very short time and sold after a very view showings. Ala did an excellent job in having pictures posted that let the people know exactly what they were going to see when they arrived. The entire process from start to closing was about 30 days. I was well pleased with how everything was handled by Ala and her associates and would recommend her to anyone, either buying or selling a house. My rating for her services would be five in every category."
"Can't say enough about Ala and Craig Chappelear and the rest of their team. Extremely professional and knowledgeable. They made the daunting process of purchasing a new house from another state as easy as possible. They set aside time in their schedule for us whenever we were able to make it onto town and showed us as many and all of the homes we wanted to see. Sometimes more than once. They provided feedback, guidance and opinions throughout. My wife and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy in the area."
Jesus and Natalie Castillo
"Great job in selling our home quickly. Professional service from beginning to end. Ala has a great team who will keep you updated through the entire process."

"Much thanks to Ala and her team at Keller Williams. It has been a pleasure working with them on the sale of my property. As an arduous customer, they did a wonderful job working with my requirements and keeping me advised."
Johnny and Denise Fleming
"Wonderful experience; very knowledgeable, helpful, and reassuring. Really helped us sell our home to the right buyer. We had several offers that were below what we felt we could accept. Ala talked us through and reassured us of our home's worth, price, and the market in our area."
Eric and Jennifer Ezell
"We had lived in our house for 20 years, and had not been in the house hunting market for a long time. Ala and Craig were awesome and were very professional in helping us find a house to suit our exact needs. We couldn't have been more pleased. Ala was very detailed and very precise in helping us as we looked at several houses. She didn't try to steer us into anything just to make a sale. She was very patient and her advise given to us was priceless. I would very much give them a two thumbs up and highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a house."
"Thank you so much for being so helpful and making buying our home a breeze. Since we were first time home buyers, we did not have a clue how to start the process. We appreciate the time and care that you took explaining the process to us and for being there every step of the way. We would definitely recommend Sandy, Craig and Ala to all of our friends and family!"
Kaci & Drew Argo
"Ala was wonderful!! After many others tried selling our condo, without any good results, Ala was successful, her knowledge and expertise got the unit sold. Ala handled everything from contract to closing. If you are thinking of selling or buying we highly recommend Ala." Chevis & Rhonda Boozer
"Chris and I so appreciate the care and attention you put into helping us find our dream house! You did an excellent job and got our tastes figured out to a “tea”. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness!" Elisabeth & Chris Cauley
"We chose Chappelear & Associates to help us purchase our new home because of our history with the company. Sandy helped us buy our first home, and there was no question that we wanted to use her again when we expanded our family and needed a larger home. Sandy and Ala were always completely honest and realistic in their advice and recommendations, and we appreciated that!" Matt & Amy Heider
"We had a contract on our house in November within 30 days! Ala helped us stage our home and worked with us to sell our home at the price that would sell and that was workable with us. We have worked with Chappelear & Associates, Inc. with buying and selling and were very pleased. We recommend them to anyone buying or selling." Michael & Darlene McCormick
"My experience with Ala’s team at Keller Williams Realty was absolutely wonderful. I was selling my property and it turned out to be a very involved process and somewhat complicated, with a great deal of paperwork required. Ala and Sandy did an excellent job taking care of all the information that was needed. One of the most important things to me in working with an agent is responsiveness, and their responsiveness is top notch. If you place a call to them with a question or concern you will get a call back! That really means a lot to me. I was kept very informed throughout the entire sales process and successfully closed on the property. I would definitely recommend Ala and her team to other people!"
Melissa St. Clair
"We chose to work with Ala for the purchase of our new home because of her confident but approachable personality and her obvious knowledge of property values, building practices, and the ability to decipher between potential and pitfalls.
She asked the right questions and listened closely to determine our needs and wants. As first time home buyers, our price range was tight but she never pushed us to look at anything that would make us financially uncomfortable, in fact, she discouraged looking at homes we should not pursue. In the end, she helped us take advantage of this market in buying a home that offers so much more than we expected to get, while giving us a payment we can afford and the potential to make a nice return on our investment. I was thrilled to have her team in our corner throughout the whole process and would not consider using anyone else for our future real estate needs." Barron and Chesley Tench
"Very professional, honest, always kept us informed every step of the way." Walter and Michele Teachman
