Our founder, John Chapman, moved to Northern Virginia in 1985 from small coal mining town in Southern West Virginia. It was during this time when he truly learned the importance of relationships, loyalty and commitment.  His non-existent resume and lack of business connections in the Metropolitan Area made it nearly impossible to find work as a local site developer.  However, as he became known as an honest, forward-looking, straightforward businessman that was committed to his work, his company’s name quickly spread throughout DC, Virginia and Maryland.  By the early 1990’s, despite a crash in our nations economy, he was able to obtain enough work through personal relationships to keep his employees on the job.

In 1993, as the economy became more stable and the family business began to see more success than ever, John and his wife Peggy decided it was time for a change.  Have growing up in a small town in Southern West Virginia; it was very important to both, John and Peggy that their kids have a place they could call “home”.  It was at this time when they made the decision to move their family further west to the town of Purcellville, Virginia.

Since moving in 1993, John and his family have also made Purcellville the home of their family-owned business, Chapman Brothers LLC.  Chapman Brothers is a Commercial Real Estate company that specializes in all areas on Commercial Development from planning, construction, leasing, and property management.
