Leigh Thomas Brown

Morning Speaker - 7 Deadly Sins of Sales

I am an international sales/motivational speaker who happens to be hilarious in an almost-inappropriate-but-still-family-friendly way. I am one of the top selling Realtors in the Charlotte NC real estate market and a RE/MAX broker/owner with one of the largest and most successful firms on the planet. I’m also proud to be in the RPAC Hall of Fame (high five if you know what that is).

I am a wife. A mama. I have 3 cats available for adoption at any evening around 3am when they cough up hairballs. I’m also a runner, singer, pianist who enjoys cooking and gardening and needlepoint (yes, I’m an old Southern woman.) And I am a child of God and a follower of Jesus just trying to get life right, one mistake at a time.

Oh! I almost forgot! You totally want a copy of my first book (especially before my second book comes out this year!) Visit:

Terry Watson

The YELP Effect (Pleasing the Empowered Customer)

Terry Watson is the “AHA guy”, who makes people, companies and organizations large and small aware of the conscious and unconscious ways they sabotage their businesses and their lives. Terry provides ridiculously effective and easily implementable strategies. In short, Terry gives your organization the tools your people need to get out of their own way while making them laugh till they snort in the process.

Terry is also a CSP, Certified Speaking Professional. The CSP is the speaking profession’s International measure of speaking experience and skill, earned from the National Speakers Association. This is a really big deal since there are less than 600 speakers with the CSP designation in the universe. Fewer than 10 percent of the speakers who belong to the Global Speakers Federation (GSF) hold this professional designation. What this means is that your event is definitely not his first rodeo. You are working with a seasoned pro who speaks a lot (Click Here to view Terry’s World Tour Schedule). If your attendees aren’t often overheard in the halls saying, “ I can’t believe I didn’t know that” or “I haven’t laughed this hard in years” or “I am so glad I was here”, Terry was not your speaker.

I would like to introduce to you, Artie Manfredi, Principal Broker and CEO of COListings Real Estate in Denver.

In 2009, Artie left his original career as a golf professional and transitioned into the real estate. He hit the ground running and was even awarded Rookie of the Year by the North Metro Denver Association of REALTORS in his first year. However, Artie found the classic lead generation strategies of cold calling and door knocking ineffective, and quickly learned to branch out into other areas that skyrocketed his business and helped him to build a successful real estate team.

After growing a team, his desire shifted to helping other agents grow their businesses, and that’s why in 2013 he founded COListings Real Estate, The UNBrokerage. There he has successfully trained and coached agents to grow their businesses to new levels. COListings recently won a 2017 Excellence Award for doing just that.

Artie serves on CAR’s YPN and Member Services Committees. Artie also serves as a Board of Director and the Chair of the Business Advisory and Personnel Committees for Community Uplift Partnership, and is a Business Advisory Committee Member for Horizon High School.

Artie speaks to various groups including REALTORS, small business owners, non profits and community leaders. He has also created multiple software tools to help realtors thrive. To sum it all up, Artie’s passion is to serve and empower others.

Small business consultant, idea guy, title rep extraordinaire, former appraiser, golf junkie and the stats guru of Longmont Kyle Snyder of First American Title wants to help you with your stats questions.

    Travis Annameier: I am a northeast Colorado native and proud to be a Colorado State University Alum. After working in education for a number of years, my wife and I decided to fulfill a dream to spend a year and a half living in Viña del Mar, Chile. I was fortunate to be able to work, travel, and hone my Spanish. Since then, I’ve been involved in real estate full time helping people to find their ideal home or sell their current one. I’ve lived in Fort Collins since 2003.

    I’m married to a fantastic woman, Shelly, and we have two dogs and a cat. In my free time when I’m not selling homes, I am a professional skydiver and have over 7,500 jumps around the world. I love to travel and be outdoors.



    Bruce Karle: I have been licensed for a little over three years now and have had the desire to grow not only my business but myself as well. I moved out to Colorado from Ohio knowing no one but a couple of family members. I realized quickly that this business is about who you know and how many people you know. Knowing no one, I knew I had to get out into the community. First thing was first, become a Realtor® (Three years now) and meet like minded people. I began to notice just like everything in life, people will try to push and persuade you into things that might not be for you. But you also have to be carful not to re-invent the wheel. I took approaches to what I saw work and developed them for my own situation. In 2017, I will have closed 52 buyer sides with an assistant, a Transaction coordinator, and myself. Our team works very well together which allows me to put forth effort to our buyers. In closing just over 50 buyers I also was able to run for the Longmont Association of Realtors Board of Directors and have started my second year with the Board. I am on the YPN committee for LARt. Lastly I have joined my offices Agent Leadership Committee or ALC.



    Matt Kurtz: Matt grew up in Loveland and attended Thompson Valley High School before graduating from Colorado State with a Bachelors Degree in Public Relations. He joined The Group Inc as a Broker Associate and Partner in 2014 and in his first year he was a candidate for the LBAR Rookie of the Year and in 2017 he was selected to the BizWest “40 Under Forty” which recognizes 40 top business professionals in Northern Colorado who are committed to excelling in their business as well as service to their community.

    Matt and his wife Andrea welcomed their first child, Carter, to the world in July of 2017.




    Chad Nixon: Loving husband, dog dad, experienced Realtor® and now Managing Broker for The Peak Properties Group’s newest location in Greeley, Colorado. I’m dedicated to seeing my office succeed by making myself readily available to my team members and helping them be the best agent they can be. Through setting an example of excellence and relentlessly raising the bar for real estate in our community, my team will always be a premier source for any real estate needs in Northern Colorado.

    Maria Vitale - Mindset and Daily Tasks to Win

    I would love to speak about how important it is to have the right mindset, in the book “Ninja Selling,” Larry writes about my story of being a single of 2 children under the ages of 3 and living in my moms basement. I was broken, discouraged, angry and felt helpless, this was not part of my plan in life. I had to change my mind set and focus on what I wanted. Working hard daily on small tasks as I managed being a mother and not even owning a home. Choosing to manage your time, your daily task and becoming who you want to be in the market is a daily choice. i would love to be able to inspire others, if I can do it they can too. I am humbled when I look at my numbers and I am recognized as a top producer. I came from a bank owned market and now work in the luxury market. The only real thing that changed was my belief system in myself and my value I was able to give t to others.
