It’s time to register for Great American REALTOR Days

Florida Realtors® Great American REALTOR® Days will take place Tuesday through Thursday, January 9-11, 2024, and the time for NEFAR members to register is now.

The annual “Rally in Tally” event gives REALTORS a chance to share the Realtor position one-on-one with state legislators about issues related to the real estate industry. During the event, NEFAR REALTORS® will take a bus to Florida’s state capitol and spend three days and two nights joining with real estate professionals from other associations throughout Florida to shake hands and meet face-to-face with the lawmakers who vote on legislation that directly impacts their livelihood.

The three-day event will include an open house at Florida Realtors® Office of Public Policy, legislative briefings, meetings with individual legislators, a Florida Realtors® PAC Major Investor Reception (by invitation only), and the famous Adams Street Block Party. Members who have experienced the event in past years say that it is an eye-opening and life-changing experience.

Craig Clear, a member of NEFAR’s Board of Directors in 2024, said once he joined NEFAR’s trip to Tallahassee, he better understood what RPAC is and its purpose in protecting homeowners’ property rights and the real estate industry in general.

“It wasn’t until I went to Tallahassee and saw what was really happening that it clicked for me,” Clear said. “Being part of GARD and seeing the legislators in person, I felt like we do have a voice here and that we as REALTORS are pretty important in Tallahassee,” he said.

The registration deadline is Thursday, December 7, and includes, bus ride, 2 nights hotel and Florida Realtors®’ registration. Hotel prices have been reduced and the deadline to sign up for hotel space is Thursday, December 7. As seating and hotel space is limited, send in your registration form and fee today.

Refreshments on the bus ride will be sponsored by Jeff Stoneking of Brightway Insurance.
