Showcase Realty

As a part of our team-building endeavors at Showcase Realty, we hosted an agent luncheon at Luciano’s Ristorante Italiano on South Boulevard. The bard and ambiance, as always, were fantastic. The company, even more so.

As owner and broker-in-charge of Showcase Realty, I aim to regularly provide a fun and stress-free venue to improve the team’s morale and to empower each agent to reach his or her maximum potential.

During the luncheon, we explored each agent’s career goals and aspirations as well as any challenges they’re often faced with that prevent them from achieving these goals. With an ever-changing industry, I keep my finger on the pulse by attending several industry conferences and mastermind groups that prepare me to navigate Showcase Realty’s success. By extension, I share as much valuable information and insights with my team so they can overcome obstacles and meet their challenges head on, armed with top-level information to assist them. They also know that they have the strong backing of the best real estate administrative and marketing systems and support in place to take care of time-consuming tasks, so they can focus on the business of assisting buyers, sellers and investors.

I’m a great believer in growth and innovation — through learning, business building, progress and problem-solving. That’s why get-togethers like this are wonderful opportunities to encourage, assist and support my team. Our time together is both, fun and productive.


SHOWCASE REALTY HOSTS TEAM-BUILDING AGENT LUNCHEONIf you’re an agent looking for real support from your brokerage, we’d love for you to join us. My team and I at Showcase Realty invite agents to be a part of a family that has your best interests at heart.

Nancy Braun Top Real Estate Agent in Charlotte NC

The Five Star Institute has announced the appointment of Nancy Braun as its Advisory Council Chairperson for the Federation of REO Certified Experts (FORCE), with her taking up the role from April 2017.

NORTH CAROLINA, April 17 2017:  Ed Delgado, CEO and President of The Five Star Institute, announced the appointment of long-term member, Nancy Braun, as the new Advisory Council Chairperson of the organization’s Real Estate Owned (REO) network, the Federation of REO Certified Experts (FORCE).

With over 20 years in the real estate industry, and extensive experience in the mortgage market, REO property management and marketing, and specialty markets, Braun was chosen for her expertise and mutual pursuit of industry excellence.

As announced on The FORCE’s website: “Braun will aid in the establishment and aggregation of member-benefitting relationships, as well as to champion progressive FORCE initiatives in the areas of education and diversity.”

Delgado said of Nancy’s appointment, “I have known Nancy for several years now, and have no doubt that she will continue the great work of Mike Pruitt, who previously held the position.  I think Nancy will provide excellent leadership and management of critical topics.”

Braun will assist in guiding the new leadership team in important and strategic representation in the interests of The FORCE members, as well as the values of The FORCE, the Five Star Institute and the industry.

As explained by Delgado during his presentation to the membership, to meet the shift in the marketplace, the leadership will make the organization viable and strong. This includes working in partnership with leaders and government officials (Housing & Urban Development – HUD), various mortgage banks, non-banks, investors and Government-Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs).

To forge strategic partnerships for members, and be in compliance and meet the needs of its clients, it is now a major objective to make The FORCE more attractive to businesses and organizations that want to work with the collective body by actively committing to diversity and inclusion.

The FORCE members will have the opportunity to participate in groups by working with particular leaders to increase the awareness of the organization’s position towards six categories that include ethnic groups and veterans.

As a result of these strategic partnerships, for the first time in the organization’s history, The FORCE will affect assignment of REO listings.  The program is still under development.  For more details, kindly visit and click on the Work Referral Program.

Braun says, “I am honored to be a part of the leadership to aid in implementing the many positive developments The FORCE has chosen to put into effect. Our leadership team will strive to bring our members valuable resources to assist them in the networking, growth, education, and of course, excellence.”




The Federation of REO Certified Experts (FORCE) is the Five Star Institute’s REO member organization comprised of pre-screened, certified, and experienced REO agents.

Focused on the improvement of REO agent performance through lender and servicer driven education, the FORCE acts as a conduit of communication between the REO agent/broker community and the servicing shops they serve.

Through significant investment in broker oversight, education, and communication delivery, the REO servicing industry can obtain tangible, bottom line benefits when using this established network to address their brokerage needs.

A Successful First Open House!

first Open House

Here at Showcase Realty, our work culture entails many great attributes and values, one value that holds true to our team is growth. This past week one of our Brokers, Jessica Sinski, experienced what it means to grow within the work place. Jessica performed her first open house at the sought after Ballantyne area that resulted in great success.

Jessica stated, “being a new agent in the field always comes with a lot of emotions, such as anxiousness. However, being on the team with Showcase Realty simmers those emotions out. New or experienced, Showcase will prepare you to be the best agent you can be with exiting new tips, a great deal of information to absorb, and the right guidance you need! The Showcase team will support you and help you get to where you need to go. Your leads are screened, your open houses are marketed, plus many more incentives for being an agent with this firm. Holding my first open house as a newly licensed agent, made my career a starting success. Many of us know potential buyers in the industry, but who better to connect with then those already searching for that perfect house looking to work with a great agent? The day of my first open house, I met with many interested investors and home buyers, who I now look forward to helping them find what they are looking for. I even got to meet with one investor who has $5 million just waiting to be spent and has had unsuccessful attempts at finding a good agent prior to meeting with me. I look forward to hosting many more open houses in my career and connecting with/helping buyers find all the aspects they need to have their goals met!”.

Undergoing with much emotion, she had to post all of her excitement on Facebook and many of her friends gave her nothing but positive feedback.



Jessica is currently a student at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte majoring in Psychology. She is a part time broker licensed in North Carolina and plans on pursuing her career with Showcase Realty after graduation this December. Everyone is so proud of all Jessica’s accomplishments and will continue to watch her grow professionally within the work place!
