Leigh Brown, Speaker and Host

REvive emcee Leigh Brown

Leigh Brown

Nationally-known real estate professional Leigh Brown will host the 2018 Real Estate REvive Conference & Expo on March 29, 2018.

In her own words, she’s “an international sales and motivational speaker who happens to be hilarious (if I do say so myself) in an almost-inappropriate-but-still-family-friendly way. I am also one of the top selling real estate agents (aka REALTOR) in the Charlotte, NC real estate market. And I am a RE/MAX broker/owner with one of the largest and most successful firms on the planet! Add to that, I am in the RPAC Hall of Fame (whoop, whoop if you know what that is).”
