Partner, Realtor, Certified Property Manager (CPM)

Conducting business with our diverse population in the city I love is my dream come true.

With a varied background ranging from retail management to many entrepreneurial endeavors, I come from and thrive in an environment of hard work and perseverance. Combining this with a relentless drive and my passion for assisting others, I’ve landed exactly where I want to be.

I believe in doing business with other people, and not faceless companies. Personal relationships are not only the most important aspect of our lives, they are the key to any successful undertaking.
Consciously or not, we all gravitate to doing business with people that we know, like and trust.

When considering myself and IMS Realty for Property Management or Real Estate transactions, relationship is king and trust is its key component.
Perpetual trust is built stronger over time and earning yours is something that I take very seriously.

Whether you are looking for Asset (property) Management or Real Estate sales or purchases, My personal commitment is to serve you with only the highest levels of integrity, honesty and sincerity.

“People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care”

ron-chapmanRon Chapman
Realtor & Certified Property Manager (CPM)

Ron Chapman’s “Great Adventure” as a REALTOR and Professional Property Manager in Southern Nevada began in 2001 when he and his wife Marie moved from southern California to the beautiful Henderson  community of  Anthem.

Born into a career U.S. Navy family, Ron’s early years introduced him to life in geographic locations ranging from the Great Lakes in Michigan, to the distant and exotic Pacific island of  Guam. After the Navy, the Chapman family settled down in California where they experienced the sheer Joy of  finally moving into a home of their very own!

Following high school, Ron’s love of baseball (and generous scholarship offers) made it possible for him to attend and play at Long Beach State and Pacific Lutheran University in Washington state. After graduation from PLU, Ron’s architectural, engineering and fine arts studies quickly resulted in employment at a major engineering/construction company in Pasadena, California. Responsible for fabricating 3-Dimensional “scale models” of the company’s various projects, i.e. power plants, oil refineries, etc., Ron later moved on to more “creative” pursuits working in Hollywood as a PropMaker/Carpenter and Special Effects Technician on motion pictures for Disney, Paramount and 20th Century Fox studios.

Ron eventually decided to start his own company which he strategically located near major aerospace companies and movie studios in the Los Angeles area. After building everything from spacecraft prototypes for NASA, to architectural models of  Disney World,  Ron eventually sold his company (and his 10,000 sq.ft. building near LAX) and entered the exciting new world of “In-Flight Entertainment”. At the end of 10 years spent developing individual passenger audio/video entertainment systems for the airlines with Hughes Aircraft/DirecTV, Ron found himself once again traveling the globe, this time as Director of Customer Support responsible for training avionics technicians to install and maintain the equipment Ron helped develop originally.

In year 2000, the “booming” real estate market in Southern Nevada beckoned to Ron so he made the decision to move to Henderson, purchase a home and become licensed to sell and manage real estate professionally. Whether Ron’s clients are “first-time” buyers looking for the perfect family home,  seasoned investors on the hunt for a “distinctive” luxury property, or a homeowner wishing to “down-size”, Ron Chapman’s systematic approach developed these past 15 years and steadfast dedication to his Client’s goals and desires, will most certainly continue to assure Successful and Joyful outcomes.
