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.
