About Us

Since 1941, when J. Carlyle Rutledge, a local attorney and Cecil W. McCombs, a local business man, allied to begin Kannapolis Real Estate Agency, KREA has provided Kannapolis and surrounding counties with quality real estate services.  Now over half a century later, our company is still owned and operated by the same two families.


We build custom homes, broker existing homes and have developed numerous subdivisions over the past 69 years.


We are one of only a few local real estate offices offering property management services. If you have a property you need to rent, we can manage it for you. If you are looking for a rental home or business, call us.  We handle more than 200 properties.


We are large enough to serve you well and small enough to make you our personal priority. If you have a real estate need, our informed, friendly agents and staff are eager to help.
