Florida ARECS Works to Enhance Attorney/Realtor® Relations

One of Florida ARECS’ most important strategic priorities is to promote the value of using a real estate attorney in real estate transactions to Realtors®. Since our inception in 2014 we have supported dozens of events to fulfill this objective including:

  • Florida Realtors® Convention
  • Law Symposiums
    • Orlando Regional Realtor® Association
    • Realtors® Association of the Palm Beaches
    • Greater Fort Lauderdale Realtors®
  • FRBAR Contract Update Classes
    • Tallahassee Board of Realtors®
    • Pensacola Association of Realtors®
    • West Pasco Board of Realtors®
  • New Realtor® Orientations
    • Realtors® Association of the Palm Beaches
    • Greater Fort Lauderdale Realtors®
  • Drone Demonstrations & Regulatory Review
    • Greater Tampa Realtors®
    • Orlando Regional Realtor® Association
    • Emerald Coast Association of Realtors®
    • Northeast Florida Association of Realtors®
  • Distressed Property Seminars
    • Broward Council of the Miami Association of Realtors®
    • Lakeland Association of Realtors®
    • Naples Area Board of Realtors®
    • Realtors® Association of the Palm Beaches®
    • Sarasota Association of Realtors®
  • Other Events
    • BAREC Economic Outlook Luncheon
    • Greater Tampa Realtors® Legally Speaking
    • Highland Association of Realtors® Ask the Lawyer
    • Local REC Lunch & Learns

Over the last four years these events have reached nearly 14,000 real estate agents across Florida on behalf of our real estate attorney members. The presentations are created by outside speakers, Fund members and The Fund’s Legal Education Department.

During the 2018 Florida Realtors® Convention we met with representatives of three other local Realtor® Associations who are interested in partnering with the Real Estate Council in their areas and we look forward to bringing these new opportunities to life. We also passed along dozens of leads to Fund members and Real Estate Councils.

There is no other voice in the real estate industry explaining to real estate agents that using an attorney IS better. None of this would be possible without The Fund and the considerable resources it dedicates to the cause. The Fund provides all of the operational and financial support to Florida ARECS and Fund members use that support to engage real estate agents at Real Estate Council events.

Beginning in October, The Fund is taking another step in its support of Florida ARECS. We will begin advertising in Florida Realtors’ Legal News, a bi-weekly email newsletter that reaches 105,000 Florida Realtor® members. You can leverage this opportunity to promote your own practice. As we have indicated in previous issues of Council Connections, Florida Realtors® is always seeking new articles on legal issues of interest to real estate agents. Consider publishing an article yourself!

If you want to promote your practice to real estate agents get involved in your local Real Estate Council and take advantage of what The Fund is providing. Contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to know more.
