“Valarie R. Brooks Real Estate continues to connect great people with great real estate.”


When Valarie R. Brooks came to Charlotte, NC, she was wide eyed and eager to make an impact on the community. She felt the best way to do that was help people get into homes. 20 + years later and Valarie is not only a pillar in the community of Charlotte, but she is recognized nationwide as a force of strength in multiple industries, not just real estate.

Valarie began her career in real estate by obtaining her license to sell real estate from Mingle School of Real Estate in Charlotte, NC. Although prior to that she was a notice investor following the traditions of her father by owning property in Georgia. After obtaining her license she began working for Allan Tate Realtors vastly becoming a top producer, gaining happy and satisfied clients along the way. During Valarie’s tenure with Allen Tate she received awards like Rookie of the Year, The Chairman’s Circle, 50 Million in Closed Production. After eight years and itching for more growth and a change, Valarie opened Valarie R. Brooks Real Estate Experts in both North Carolina and South Carolina in 2007 under the ReMax Executive Realty umbrella.  Here, she remained a top producing agent solidifying more and more happy clients along the way and garnering more awards like 100% club and being published as “The Best of the Best”.

In 2011, known as the hardest working woman in real estate, with one Office Manager, and a part time office assistant, Valarie launched Valarie R. Brooks Real Estate Connections. Valarie was determined to maintain the large presence she had built with the previous firms. That meant arming herself with world class connections, a people centered-team, and partnering with vendors and lenders to offer her clients the best of the best.

Valarie has sold over a billion dollars of real estate and keeps going and going. Valarie’s success has achieved many more awards, designations and notables such as, HGTV’s Charlotte Real Estate Expert, The National Five Star Professional award…eight-time winner, and Elite’s Business Woman of the year to name a few. More recently Valarie has been chosen to be a monthly guest expert on the nationally syndicated show, “The American Dream” and was also featured in Forbes Magazine as a Market Leader.

Building her team and growing her companies set the stage for Valarie to step into the coaching industry. Determined to educate Realtors® about the business of real estate, Destination You Inc, her success coaching company, launched in 2015. Now as Valarie R. Brooks Coaching, Valarie uses this platform, to help many Realtors®, entrepreneurs and business owners grow and develop their business into strong forces in their respective industries.
