Since that humble beginning in 1916, hundreds of thousands of Realtors have helped millions of Floridians achieve the dream of owning a home or business.
Florida Realtors' mission is to advance Florida's real estate industry by shaping public policy, teaching ethical practice and enhancing efforts of local associations to provide tools members need to succeed.
Florida Realtors is the largest trade association in the state, and its 155,000 members rely on the association for proprietary business forms, networking opportunities, education programs, market data and analysis, advocacy initiatives and much more.
