Career Switcher: Sending a Case Study "Portfolio" With Resume/CV ?

I graduated with a degree in Government 3 years ago, been working as a project manager for a residential construction company ever since. I realized 6 months ago I wanted to switch careers so I immediately began taking a ton of commercial real estate modeling courses. Now I'm starting to send out my resume to CRE companies and as you can imagine 75% of my resume is not CRE related, so I'm trying to figure out ways to get a leg up. Should I create a "portfolio" containing a couple case studies I've modeled to send with my resume/CV or should I just keep putting my time and effort into networking?
