SummerSHARE Sponsor- Cottingham Chalk

We are so proud to call Cottingham Chalk an official sponsor of SummerSHARE this year, and appreciate their generosity, not only in supporting our community wide giving campaign, but in every way that they have given back to Charlotte for the past 35 years.

Cottingham Chalk is a Charlotte real estate company that people have trusted since 1983 and, this summer, they celebrate their 35th year of business with a brand refresh.  Cottingham Chalk has always believed in the importance of collaboration and building relationships and their recent brand refresh did not change that. While their look, signs, logo and name have been refreshed, updated and modernized, their core values have not. Cottingham Chalk’s focus has always been, and continues to be, on being an authentic, committed, and a relationship driven company.

The past 35 years, Cottingham Chalk has been successful in maintaining a respectful reputation built on integrity and trust in Charlotte. This success is in part a result of their commitment to philanthropy. They believe strongly that giving back to their nonprofit neighbors is the most valuable partnership they could pursue.

See for yourself! Here is a quick video of Cottingham Chalk agents volunteering at Habitat for Humanity during this year’s annual Realtor Care Day.

*Fun fact: Some Cottingham Chalk agents have even created their own nonprofits!

In the company’s own words: “We believe in community and we’re always willing to lend a helping hand — to you and to each other. The foundation of Cottingham Chalk was built on relationships with one another between our agents and clients, but also with our Charlotte community.”

SummerSHARE would not be possible without our generous sponsors, and we are so grateful that a company as socially aware and caring as Cottingham Chalk has joined us in engaging the Charlotte community and encouraging Charlotteans to shop for GOOD.
