Sh*t You Never Thought a REALTOR® Would Say



You might have heard of a North Carolina firecracker named Leigh Brown, broker-owner of RE/MAX Executive Realty in Concord, N.C. Now hear her loud and clear.

When Brown joined REALTOR® Magazine earlier this year as its guest editor for the March/April edition, she lit a fire under all of us. She wrote an inspiring — if not somewhat controversial — commentary piece challenging real estate practitioners to drop the polite business front and get real with clients by being their true selves. Don’t watch your language, she said. Be your most outrageously authentic self, and clients will flock to you in appreciation for being who you are.

Well, Brown’s at it again — being outrageously authentic, that is. She posted a laugh-out-loud video on her Facebook page this week showing just how real she can be. The video, titled “Sh*t Leigh Brown Says,” promises not just to have you rolling on the floor but to give you an idea of how being honest to a fault can sometimes help you in your business. Check out the video below.

  1. The only way this could be any funnier is if her accent was “Fargo-esque”! 🙂

  2. This is exactly how I do business.

    Refreshing, I applaud you. Amen.

  4. Leigh shows a great amount of attitude but very little substance. Real estate sales should be client based. Clients should be told the truth right from the beginning about the prospects for their home sale or purchase. You don’t have to do it with attitude, it doesn’t have to be a veiled frustration about our clients. The smart Realtor knows that his clients benefit the most when he understands the market and imparts that understanding to his clients unwaveringly.

  5. I love it! C

    Leigh is one of the best speakers I have ever heard. Every opportunity that I get, I make sure to attend her classes and have enjoyed her for the past 4 years or more.
