About The Owner

Nancy Braun | Owner/Broker, Showcase Realty, LLC

Nancy Braun, a graduate of Cornell University and SUNY Buffalo Law School, is a New York native who moved to North Carolina over 20 years ago because she fell in love with its amazing weather, vibrant lifestyle, booming economy, and warm welcome to newcomers. She was a corporate layer, and entrepreneur/owner of several businesses over the years. It wasn’t until her move to North Carolina that she discovered a love for real estate.

Nancy began her real estate career by working with a brokerage that sold real estate the same way for over 45 years.  After gaining 12 years of experience with the firm, Nancy decided to start a real estate company that used technology, creativity and innovation to change the way real estate is bought and sold. Today, after using a unique system in selling thousands of homes in the Carolinas, Showcase Realty is an award-winning renowned digital marketing innovator.  Nancy and the team use top marketing, strategies, technology and systems to give clients cutting-edge results, at top dollar, and in the least amount of time.  

With a team of over 50 agents and staff, a main office in Charlotte’s South End Downtown hub, and three branch offices in Gastonia, NC and Rock Hill, South Carolina, Showcase Realty provides efficient and best-in-class real estate client services in the Carolinas.
