Sherman Walters (Owner & Broker-In-Charge)

Prior to opening the National Restaurant Properties branch in Greenville, I spent 5 years as a broker/agent in the Charlotte, NC office – being mentored by one of the legends in the industry. In that short span of time, I successfully closed over $6 Million in transactions with both independent and franchise restaurants. These deals included nearly every restaurant concept, including – Asian Fusion, Pizzerias, Fine Dining, Latin Fusion, Catering Companies, BBQ Joints, Bars, Night Clubs, Dive Bars, Bakeries & Coffee Shops.

My success as a broker boils down to one simple rule – be honest with people, tell the truth and always do the right thing. I grew up in the restaurant business and took over my family’s business shortly after college. So I know the sacrifices and hardships that small business operators have to endure. I’ve been there – successful and not so successful – but if you don’t get back up on the horse you can’t enjoy the ride. I have tons of respect for the people that continue to get up every day and fight the battles and challenges that this business dishes out.

My restaurant experience includes owning & operating two Dairy Queen Franchises in the Charlotte area for 15 years before joining the National Restaurant Properties team. During that time I was elected by the NC/SC franchise operators to serve on a number of boards within the Dairy Queen system, representing franchisee interests on decisions related to supply chain, vendor contracts, menu optimization, marketing, fund-raising and store development strategies throughout the U.S.

As the owner of this firm, our clients and customers will always have our respect and gratitude.
