A Message from Our President
2017 is off to a productive start. Your leadership team attended Florida Realtors mid-winter meetings in Orlando and were involved in the think tank groups discussing issues relevant to home ownership. From those meetings some core issues were determined that your leadership team was able to take to Tallahassee as part of Great American Realtor Day (GARD) at the capital. We met with Representatives Raschein and Diaz as well as Senator Flores to express interest in having them support current legislation on: 1. Estoppel fee limits, 2. Affordable housing, 3. Reducing the business rent tax, and 4. clean water initiatives.
Looking forward we have an amazing line up of educational offerings thanks to the hard work of your committee chair Lea Reusch. Please make sure you are checking the education on the MLKAR Google calendar and taking advantage of these opportunities.
The District 4 conference is coming up soon and I hope to see many of our members there to participate in this event full of education and networking opportunities.
Wayne, Lori and your board all work hard to deliver you an outstanding association and member benefits. I hope you all will learn, grown and connect with each other through this year.
I am honored to be your President for 2017.
