About Us We treat others as we wish to be treated.
Cottingham Chalk Hayes, Realtors is a locally owned residential real estate company. Cottingham-Chalk & Associates was founded in 1983 by Dan Cottingham and John Chalk, and Bissell-Hayes Realtors joined forces with us in 2009. This union strengthened the company during unique times and increased our market presence and market share. Our agents are service-minded and understand that someone’s home is often their largest and most precious investment. As professional Realtors, every sales associate is committed to treating all clients with respect, honesty and integrity. We strive to go beyond treating others as they might expect to be treated by delivering unparalleled service. We are also committed to serving the communities in which we live. Our agents and staff volunteer with many local organizations to help insure that Charlotte will continue to be a wonderful place to live, work and play for years to come!
“You succeed by putting other’s interests above your own.”
