Our History

For nearly two decades, Showcase Properties of Central Florida has proudly served buyers and sellers alike in achieving their real estate dreams. Originally opened under the name Golden Hills Realty Corporation in 1993, Bob Van Heyde was the original broker of Record, working with the company since inception. Jody Micilcavage would later buy and rename the company to Showcase Properties of Central Florida in 2000. Jody made huge strides after this purchase, refocusing the company from the Golden Hills community to all of Central Florida.

In 2013, Valerie Dailey purchased the company from Jody, and still serves as the acting Broker today. Since the purchase in 2013, Showcase Properties has grown from its original 5 REALTORS® to a diverse team of 30+ REALTORS®, as well as a full-service marketing team and office support staff who serve as the glue that keeps everything running smoothly.

Today, our brokerage is one of the top performing boutique firms in Marion County and a leader in farm sales in the area. The determination and grit of our agents routinely win them top awards in the area, including Outstanding Achiever awards for those with a yearly sales volume of more than $3,000,000, and Top Professional awards for those with yearly sales volumes of more than $1,000,000 in one year. Valerie Dailey has also been recognized as REALTOR® of the Year by OMCAR in 2018, an award that recognizes the contributions made to the profession, to fellow REALTORS®, and to the community throughout their career as a real estate agent. Our agents are some of the most driven professionals in Marion County– and year after year, we have the results to prove it!
