For Realtors, By Realtors: Who We Are and What We Do
In 1916, 68 real estate brokers from 16 Florida communities gathered in Jacksonville for their first convention. That first meeting marked the beginning of a vision and an ongoing mission to serve the Realtors of Florida and the people who make their home in the Sunshine State.
Their goal: to bring order, fairness and professionalism to the real estate business in Florida.
Since that humble beginning, thousands and thousands of Realtors have helped millions of Floridians achieve the American dream of homeownership.
Florida Realtors has grown to become the largest trade association in the state with more than 187,000 members and the third-largest Realtor organization in the country.
Today, the organization's members and the management team are busier than ever, protecting private property rights and keeping a very close eye on some 3,600 pieces of legislation each year that can impact property owners in Florida.
Florida Realtors elected leadership and business management teams share a common goal. Individually, each brings to the table years of expertise in the real estate industry and proven business management skills. As partners, they seek solutions to advance specific public policy issues and meet the needs of the state's Realtor community.
Through Florida Realtors, members receive business contacts, networking opportunities, educational offerings, research and legislative representation, programs, services and experience tremendous camaraderie. The association headquarters is located in Orlando, and the legislative Office of Public Policy is located in the heart of Tallahassee.
