Casey Schlapak discovered a calling for real estate when she was assisting clients to find rental homes.
“While working in property management, I found my passion for helping people locate a place to call ‘home,’ even though it was short-term,” she recalls. “My interest progressed into wanting to help people find the perfect long-term home.”
Now an agent with Coldwell Banker Advantage’s Fayetteville office, Casey especially enjoys working with military members and their families, including first-time home buyers.
“I grew up in a military family, and I’m now a military spouse,” she says. “I also remember the first home that my husband and I bought – and that great feeling of accomplishment – to have something that our growing family could call our own.”
“I want to help others experience that feeling and also help educate them on the home-buying process. Many people think they cannot afford to buy a home, but they really can. It’s all about having the right information and knowing your options and solutions. That’s where a real estate professional comes in.”
Prior to her real estate career, Casey also gained invaluable experience in the banking industry. In addition to Fayetteville, she also has lived in Cape Coral, Fla., and Clarksville, Tenn.
When not working, Casey likes to get crafty. A favorite pastime is “cutting vinyl decals to use in making shirts and wooden signs.” Spending time with family having outdoor adventures and taking beach trips also top the list.
Causes close to her heart include autism awareness and cancer research.

No matter the time of day, Casey was on top of her game. We had a long road with buying our first home and dedication Casey put forth was outstanding. Her answer to any question we had was prompt. Her local knowledge and professionalism were great. Without a doubt, Casey made our home buying experience one to remember. From the beginning of our journey to buying a home, we had hiccups with previous agents, until we stumbled upon Casey. Within a few hours of introductions, my wife and I had already seen multiple houses within our budget and with the amenities we couldn't live without. Her attention to detail and trustworthiness to find us the perfect home was never questioned. Casey communicated day and night with selling agents to make sure everything was in order for us. My wife and I have long work hours during the week. Casey was understanding of our schedule and dedicated her personal time to us after hours to show us homes. After looking at what seemed to be every house on the market within our budget, we found the "one" Casey worked tirelessly with the selling agent to help us close in a timely manner. She helped us set up every inspection, appraisal, and any other small thing that needed to be completed. Without Casey, we would not be in a house that we now call home.
