Awareness of what residents and prospects are really thinking and feeling, and knowing how to react effectively, can transform a good leasing professional to a great one.

Body language plays a vital part in marketing a property. Subtle signals from leasing professionals heavily influence how potential residents and tenants make decisions about a property. Additionally, with the tactics for discerning the hidden meaning in prospective residents’ and tenants’ body language, leasing professionals can increase their influence and get to “YES!” more often.

At the 2018 Leasing Summit, body language expert Traci Brown will teach attendees how to uncover what residents and prospects are projecting with their body language and provide tips for the strategic use of body language to persuade and influence others.

Laugh, learn and win prizes in this game show-style event. The grand prize: the skill set required to close more leases!



Question: What do Lance Armstrong, Chris Christie and Vladimir Putin have in common?

Answer: Traci Brown has revealed their secrets to the world, and she’s told the world what they’re not saying.

Traci Brown teaches the lie, fraud and identity theft detection techniques she’s used to get to the truth in billion-dollar business deals, crimes and politics. Traci is not only a master lie detector, she’s a persuasion expert. Her persuasion system landed her a lucrative product deal with Kevin Harrington, a Shark from ABC’s hit show Shark Tank and took her on a wild ride to the big-time consumer markets of TV shopping channels, infomercials and beyond. Traci is a three-time US Collegiate Cycling Champion and former member of Team USA (just ask her how she used body language to win bike races!). She is a past president of the National Speaker’s Association Colorado Chapter and the author of four books, How to Detect Lies, Fraud and Identity TheftPersuasion PointBody Language Confidential and Body Language for Profits.
