Chalice Springfield, Sears Real Estate

Chalice started at Sears Real Estate when she answered an ad on an index card to work in the mail room on the job board at the University of Northern Colorado. She was just 19 years old and seeking employment to help put her through college so she didn't have to eat ramen and could fill her car with gas. After earning her bachelor's degree at the University of Northern Colorado, while working full-time at Sears Real Estate, she plunged into the world of real estate where she still finds herself some 25 years later! Today, she is delighted to be the CEO/Managing Broker of Sears Real Estate, and independent firm with the #1 market share in the Greeley area. Chalice has sold real estate, worked in the mortgage and title industries, and currently manages over 50 people (she calls it "herding cats!"). 
Chalice is committed to being "green and growing" not "ripe and rotten" which is why she enjoys inspiring, training, and coaching individuals and teams. She has over 15 years of expertise in the field of real estate and motivational speaking. Chalice has spoken at National Conferences and in Colorado for various groups, non-profits, and businesses. 
In her free time, Chalice enjoys unleashing her creative side by making and sending homemade greeting cards, expanding her brain by reading and traveling, and spending time with her husband of 21 years, Chris and her cats, Berto and Jack (who happens to have one eye). Unlike most people in the world, Chalice actually loves public speaking (when it can be fun).
