Nancy Braun, Owner & Broker in Charge of Showcase Realty LLC, was honored last week by The City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County with a 2014 Crowns of Enterprise Award.

The ceremony, which was held at the Foundation for the Carolinas, honors one outstanding business in each of the following categories:  Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) of the Year, Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) of the Year, and Small Business Enterprise (SBE) of the Year.  Showcase Realty LLC was named the 2014 Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) of the Year.

“It’s an exciting time for Showcase Realty,” said Braun, “I founded the company back in 2008, and it was important to me to become a Certified Woman-Owned Business in 2010. To be recognized by the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County as the WBE Award Winner is a special honor and one that truly speaks to the core of what we do. I’m honored that they chose to recognize the success of our team.”

Now in its 3rd year, the Crowns of Enterprise Awards recognize small businesses that demonstrate exemplary leadership and sound business strategies.  By honoring the efforts of these businesses, the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County hope to illustrate the positive economic impact they have on the community as a whole.

Braun, who was also recently named a 2014 “Women in Business Achievement Award” winner by the Charlotte Business Journal, has 17 years of real estate experience. A Charlotte Business Journal “Fast 50 Award” winner two years in a row, Showcase Realty, LLC was ranked the 20th fastest growing private company in Charlotte in 2013. Braun was also recognized as one of The Thousand 2013 by REAL Trends and the Wall Street Journal, and ranked 1st in N.C. by transaction by America’s Best Real Estate Agents 2013.
