Every Halloween will be the same; at least in the fact that there will always be trending costumes that you can’t help but notice. Last year the top trending Costume was Psy, particularly from his world famous video “Gangnam Style.” It was definitely amusing seeing bright colorful suits and people walking / dancing up to your door to get some candy. This year we will be seeing a lot of pop culture references, more than usual, and thankfully gone is the era of the sexy cat/policewoman/nurse!(of course there are always those persistent few..) None the less, I thought it was best to prepare you folks for what you are about to see tonight.

Minion- “Despicable Me” These little guys will be everywhere this Halloween. So much that you will believe you have found yourself in the “Despicable Me” world! These costumes are number one this year in popularity and have numerous tutorials on the web on how to be a minion this Halloween.

“The Great Gatsby” Thanks to the ever popular movie, this year many fans or just fans of the era in general will be dressed in glitz and glam. Flappers and dapper fellows will be gracing us with their presence this year and you better believe they will be ready to party!

“Breaking Bad” This year marked the last season of the very popular cult show and many fans will pay tribute to its characters. Biohazard Costumes will be everywhere, so remain calm when you see one at your doorstep shouting “trick-or-treat”, most likely it’s a trick-or-treater, not a government scientist who has some bad news for you; pay attention to context clues!

“Miley Cyrus” I don’t think anyone is surprised that this made the list in the least. After the highly controversial VMA’s performance and her constant presence in the media in the weeks following, I’m surprised it was not the “Top Costume” for this year. I guess her costume will take the place of the “sexy cat” this year, seeing as the options only vary from a teddy bear leotard to a nude colored bra and panties set.

I wonder which one of these costumes we will see this year at our Halloween Party. The party, “A Haunting Showcase”, takes place on Friday, Nov. 1 at our main office and we are all so excited for this spectacular event. There will be trick or treating in the office, dinner & cocktails, and contests! We hope you willl have an exciting and safe evening tonight. Happy Halloween!

Charlotte, NC Real Estate Brokerage Uses Foreclosures to ‘Pay It Forward’


Nancy Braun, Owner & Broker-In-Charge

Local Real Estate Brokerage Uses Foreclosures to ‘Pay It Forward’
Showcase Realty partners with the national REO4Kids effort to raise money for children’s charities through the sale of REO properties.

CHARLOTTE, NC (October 18, 2010) – Nancy Braun, Owner and Broker of Showcase Realty, LLC, has recently teamed up with REO4Kids to become one of the few brokerages across the US donating $100 to children’s charities per REO Asset she sells. In 2009 Nancy’s group donated over $200,000 and expects to donate more than $250,000 in 2010. Because foreclosures affect inner city kids more than anyone else, the group has elected to help the Boys and Girls Club of America as well as Make-a-Wish. Showcase also donates to No Paws Left Behind to help the animal victims of this foreclosure crisis.
The recent partnership of Showcase Realty with REO4Kids is not only raising money for deserving charities but also shining a positive light onto the unfortunate situation that is home foreclosure.
“This is a huge opportunity for Showcase Realty to ‘Pay it Forward’. We want to hold the torch and lead the way for other agents and brokerages to use real estate as a way to give back to their local communities as well as the larger national community in this time of economic need,” says Braun.
Braun, who has been a successful real estate agent for14 years, opened Showcase Realty in 2008. In addition to General Brokerage, the firm launched foreclosure and short sale divisions to address the surge of foreclosures, short sales and distressed properties in the real estate market.
