The National Association of REALTORS® awarded the DIAMOND Global Achievement Program Award to the Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association’s Global Real Estate Council of Orlando at the Annual Conference & Expo in Boston, MA. The Association staff and volunteer leaders have demonstrated six consecutive years of consistently high levels of achievement in the five evaluated categories: Business Plan, Marketing & Communication, Events/Education, Outreach and Benchmarking.
In addition to excelling in the above categories, the Global Real Estate Council of Orlando consistently provides education opportunities and market specific materials for their members to market Orlando, Florida to the world. This is a key piece of information for the global practitioner. In 2018, this brochure was translated into English, Portuguese and Spanish. In addition to that piece is a constant stream of communication between the association and their 14,500+ members via print magazine and e-newsletters; in addition to that, they have a robust and well-designed website that enables the public to search for a REALTOR® by language.
Expanding their reach around the world in 2018, they took delegations of members to REALTOR® Quest in Toronto, Canada and A Place in the Sun in the United Kingdom. Continuing that mindset to expose their market and their members to the world, they then opened their doors to a delegation of Belgian members for a weeklong inbound trade mission. As the Global Real Estate Council of Orlando looks forward, they have begun exploring the possibility of offering their members the Global Entry Program and interview with US Customs and Border Protection (for travel outside the US) directly at their association instead of having to go to the Orlando International Airport for that process!
In 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2013 the Global Real Estate Council of Orlando received the Platinum Achievement Award. In 2012, they received Gold.
Congrats, Global Real Estate Council of Orlando!
