Angelica Chapman breathes, speaks, and lives the Houston lifestyle as an entrepreneur, philanthropist, art enthusiast, and Realtor®. A first generation Houstonian of Colombian descent, Angelica lived in both the Meyerland and the Memorial areas and studied at University of Houston, Glassell School of Art, and the Art Institute with her eye on becoming a jeweler, designer, and appraiser. From there she sought training in Chicago (University of Illinois), New York (SUNY Purchase), and California (Gemological Institute of America) before settling in Malibu, where she owned a small jewelry boutique that catered to locals, tourists, and celebrity clientele.
Despite these adventures, Angelica longed to be back in her hometown, so she decided to move back to Houston to start her family. Once back in Houston, she continued in the jewelry industry, selling product to stores such as Neiman Marcus, Tootsies, and other boutiques across Texas, California, and the Caribbean.
In 2006, Angelica decided to add real estate to her resumé, so she pursued education to specialize in Luxury Home/Residential sales and leasing. She is now a Certified Home Marketing Specialist (CHMS), an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS), a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS), and a member of the Luxury Home Council.
Angelica has gained a deep understanding of international culture from her travels, as well as her time spent as a resident of both Maracaibo and Caracas in Venezuela. In her spare time, she serves on the Lamb & Goat Committee at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, as a board member at the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, and as a board member and auction chair at Bering Omega Community Services. She is a member of several appraisal organizations, including the Appraisal Foundation, National Association of Jewelry Appraisers, the International Society of Appraisers, and served on the board as Treasurer for the American Society of Appraisers. As a philanthropist, Angelica makes donations to several nonprofits such as the Humane Society, the Rainforest Foundation, Child Advocates, the American Diabetes Association, and Citizens for Animal Protection.
