Affordable Housing

I am not just a believer, I am a contributor! I will bring the housing conversation back to Florida Realtors. We need to go beyond the Housing Trust Fund. It’s about housing supply and how we can help increase it!

a.      It’s not just about affordable housing but “affordable lifestyles”! I was instrumental in bringing 100 units of Affordable Housing to my own county of Osceola for our homeless families living in hotels and motels.

b.      Financial Literacy Programs – as 2018 Chair of the NAR Housing Opportunity Committee, I led REALTORS® across the country in recommending a policy to support Financial Literacy through NAR grants. Imagine the impact that REALTORS® can have in building the next generation of mortgage-ready homebuyers, building wealth through sustainable homeownership!

Local Associations

Let’s strengthen our relationships and support for our local associations! I will push for FR to be more locally focused.

Real estate is local. Associations are local. Let’s face it, we are at the frontlines of REALTOR® member care, not the state association. We provide member education that elevates professionalism, local advocacy, RPAC fundraising and so much more.

Global Real Estate

Let’s continue to expand Global Real Estate programs in Florida. I will advocate to provide more opportunities for member participation and education.

As a CIPS, I see the impact this has on member productivity. Considering the volume of Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) in Florida real estate, continuing to make this a priority can help improve members’ bottom line.
