RALEIGH, N.C. - Leigh Brown, a longtime successful realtor, CEO and author, announced her candidacy for North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, which comprises all or parts of Mecklenburg, Union, Anson, Richmond, Bladen, Robeson, Cumberland and Scotland counties. Brown filed in the Republican Primary at the State Board of Elections today.
Brown, a wife and mother of two, broker/owner of RE/MAX Executive and leader of the Leigh Brown and Associates team based in Concord, N.C., where she has helped people across the state -- including the 9th district -- buy and sell homes. With experience as a REALTOR® and business owner, Brown knows what it takes for businesses and communities to thrive.
“As a REALTOR®, there’s no better person to serve in an elective office than somebody like me who sits across the kitchen table from homeowners every single day and helps find solutions to their problems,” Brown said.
Primarily, Brown’s campaign is focused on implementing fiscally conservative leadership in Washington, while working with President Trump to create jobs, cut taxes and keep the economy on track by reducing regulatory overreach. Brown vows to always put North Carolina first and never back down from a fight.
A conservative outsider, Brown aims to bring a new perspective and business savvy to politics and change the way things are done in Washington. Brown will support President Trump and brings a strong pro-gun and pro-life mindset to the table.
Brown entered the real estate world in 2010, where she established one of the nation’s best real estate companies and served as an official for the National Association of REALTORS ®. Along with real estate, Brown ventured into writing where she became a bestselling author, including “Outrageous Authenticity™” and “The 7 Deadly Sins of Sales™.” She’s traveled the state and country giving inspirational speeches and helping audiences reach their goals.
Brown, born and raised in North Carolina, is a proud graduate of UNC Chapel Hill and currently raising her family in the state. She is the wife of Steve and mother of middle schoolers Cora and Timmy. Brown is no stranger to the 9th district, as most of her family is from Union and Anson counties. When time permits, Brown enjoys volunteering with Meals on Wheels.
“It’s about time we had somebody at the table who is willing to find solutions and do what it takes to get the job done. I am that person. I’m excited for the opportunity to serve the people of the 9th district.”
