As the emcee and organizer of CRS Sellabration, I’m on the continuous search for horizon speakers. The first time I saw Maura was in a casual setting and was thoroughly impressed. When I decided to put her on the bigger stage of Sellabration, she more than delivered. While many young speakers have the knowledge to share, they lack the presence. Maura is a full package. She speaks professionally and confidently. Maura will always have a place on my stages.
~ Brian Copeland, National Keynote and Emcee (CRS Sellabration, Inman Connect, RETechSouth)
Maura is a great presenter, but more than that – she’s a doer. Sharing valuable ideas, tips, and tactics is one thing. Doing them is another. Maura is the rare combination of quality presenter and expert practitioner. She does what she shares.
~ Brad Nix, Founder of RETSO
Maura brings her real estate experience and creativity to her speaking and training. Instantly engaging, her students are riveted to her presentation. She delivers instant takeaways which real estate professional so desperately need when they attend training on technology. Maura brings great value to any event you hire her for.
~ Amy Chorew, VP of Platform Development at Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate
Maura [is] a pleasure to work with and provide[s] great content for the webinar. I try not to use the same speaker more than once in the same year. I try to give…a variety of speakers instead of just using the same speaker over and over again. It is a rare occasion that I have scheduled the same speaker to do multiple webinars in the same year. Maura Neill is one of those speakers that I have used multiple times. She has provided relevant, solid content and was able to explain it to our members in a fashion that they understood. She is very well spoken… She has a wide range of knowledge also. Maura is very professional and such a pleasure to work with. I cannot say enough about her as a speaker.” Read full letter here.

[Maura] is professional and knowledgeable about the topics and brings a sense of excitement to the audience that only this younger generation can bring. I have had the opportunity of seeing Maura speak to our members at a technology day and I have also seen her present at the REBar[Camp] Nashville conference. Both events were well attended and our members enjoyed her sessions.

Your Facebook Business Page is Worthless (REALTOR® University Social Media Summit 2012)
Maura Neill’s recent REALTOR® University webinar, “Your Facebook [Business] Page is Worthless,” made an impression on me. Contrary to its title, Ms. Neill’s webinar was a worthwhile endeavor; she shared how to make your time on Facebook time well spent. As social coordinator for Windermere Real Estate / Mercer Island, I’m always looking for new ways to pump up our office’s social media profile. In addition, the search for clever ideas to share, to help our agents further utilize social media in their marketing plans, is never-ending. I was so pleased that she shared doable, worthwhile (there is that word again!) action items for me to both initiate and share. My favorite take-away from Ms. Neill’s webinar: to use Facebook to create a spread sheet to track client interests, hobbies, birthdays, big life events, etc. This priceless data base gives an agent an excuse to contact clients on a daily basis. No more worry regarding what to talk about!
