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: OutrageousAuthenticity.com.
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.

My name is Dexter Finley. I love the mortgage industry because I’m a nerd when it comes to numbers and details, and I like building relationships. I graduated from Colorado State University and obtained a degree in business administration with a concentration in real estate. When I was younger, I had the opportunity to work for a 1031 exchange company in Denver, CO (real estate tax law), which is what got me interested in real estate. I have now been in mortgage for 5 years.

She was just 19 years old and seeking employment to help put her through college so she didn’t have to eat ramen and could fill her car with gas. After earning her bachelor’s degree at the University of Northern Colorado, while working full-time at Sears Real Estate, she plunged into the world of real estate where she still finds herself some 25 years later! Today, she is delighted to be the CEO/Managing Broker of Sears Real Estate, and independent firm with the #1 market share in the Greeley area.

She has over 15 years of expertise in the field of real estate and motivational speaking. Chalice has spoken at National Conferences and in Colorado for various groups, non-profits and businesses.
In her free time, Chalice enjoys unleashing her creative side by making and sending homemade greeting cards, expanding her brain by reading and traveling, and spending time with her husband of 21 years, Chris and her cats, Berto and Jack (who happens to have one eye).
