Charlotte Real Estate Talk: Nicole Copsis



The idea of a clearinghouse of volunteer opportunities seems like an idea that just makes sense in Charlotte’s large, energetic work force. SHARE Charlotte is a one-stop shop that serves that purpose exactly. Nicole Copsis joins Charlotte Real Estate Talk this week to tell you how easy it is to “plug in and make an impact,” with more than 400 non-profits in the area. Listen in to find out how to “Do Good” in our town!


Charlotte Real Estate Talk: Dorie Fusaro



You’ve heard of a Renaissance Man — well-rounded, well-educated, and fluent in a number of pursuits like the arts, science, sports, and in Charlotte, maybe finance. Dorie Fusaro is someone you could easily call a Renaissance Woman, one who fits that description and more. The banker, project manager, mortgage professional, and a mom — along with being a veteran yoga instructor, blogger, and life coach — shares her secrets of a full life on this episode of Charlotte Real Estate Talk, along with her passion for using her gifts to help the homeless.

Charlotte Real Estate Talk: Brett Baronak



Spring and early summer are the perfect time of year to get out and explore the many trails that make The Carolinas a great place to live. Hundreds of trails dot our region, and a perfect way to discover them is National Trails Day on June 1st. 

And one of the best ways to find your way around our extensive trail network is by following the many “threads” of the Carolina Thread Trail… a collection of more than 250 miles of trails and 100 miles of “blueways” that will eventually connect multiple cities and counties in North and South Carolina. Joining us today on Charlotte Real Estate Talk is Bret Baronek, who can “fill in the gaps” in our discovery of this extensive trail system. Welcome Bret.


Charlotte Real Estate Talk: Fight the Good Fight



Among the many great things to do in the month of May, here in our community… there are some that serve a greater purpose. We’re happy to tell you about one of those today on Charlotte Real Estate talk. May is National Brain Cancer Awareness Month, and our guest is someone who is personally affected by the brutal reality of brain cancer. Michel died in 2014, and Linda went right to work organizing a 7k race called “Fight the Good Fight” 7k. 


Charlotte Real Estate Talk: John Aneralla



While the Queen City gets the most attention as the region’s biggest city, smaller towns in Mecklenburg County are quietly doing business as great places to live.

One of those is the town of Huntersville, the first of the “northern towns” you’ll cross into on your trip up I-77 to North Meck. It’s also considered one of Charlotte’s great suburbs because it’s close to uptown, close to the lake, and home to a lot of amenities like a children’s museum and an aquatic center, while still holding onto its small-town, family-friendly vibe.

We have with us today the mayor of Huntersville, John Aneralla, who — breaking news — has just announced he is running for a third term. Welcome to Charlotte Real Estate Talk, John.


Charlotte Real Estate Talk: Vision Zero



The city of Charlotte is trying to make the paths safer for everyone. Last May, Charlotte’s Department of Transportation kicked off its new initiative to help drivers and pedestrians travel safely on the same roads: Vision Zero. The goal is to create a city with zero traffic deaths or serious injuries, and it wants your help. Amy Mitchell and Alex Riemondy from CDOT are here with us on Charlotte Real Estate Talk to share that vision with us.
