Florida ARECS: Bringing Members & Realtors® Together

Florida ARECS and The Fund are always ready to support our Real Estate Councils and their efforts to build relationships with their local Realtor® Associations.

Over the last few years, we have worked with Bay Area, Broward, Central Florida, Highlands, Jacksonville, Palm Beach, North Dade & Beaches, South Miami-Dade and Volusia RECs to host ad-hoc seminars, Law Symposiums and Legal Summits for the Realtors® Associations in their areas.  Each event provides numerous opportunities for individual REC Members to demonstrate their expertise and speak to agents who can direct business their way.

Topics have included programs provided by The Fund such as:

  • Residential Real Estate Contracts for Sale & Purchase
  • FIRPTA & 1031 Exchanges
  • Hot Spots & Cool Tips Contract Review
  • Top 10 Agent Pitfalls

You can view a complete list of our Realtor®-oriented seminars at http://www.flarecs.com/request-a-seminar.  We are also fortunate to have many REC Members who create their own custom programs on topics like:

  • Drone Law
  • Emotional Support Animals
  • Tax Implications for Foreign Investors
  • Residential Inspections & Repairs

Our next REC/Realtor® event will be held March 18th when the Bay Area Real Estate Council will host members of the West Pasco Board of Realtors® for a presentation of Residential Real Estate Contracts for Sale & Purchase by The Fund’s Linda Monaco.  BAREC and The Fund have been partnering on this event for over four years.  Linda’s presentation will be followed by a Q&A panel of local Fund Members to address the real estate agents’ specific questions.

Planning for 2021 REC/Realtor® Law Symposiums are already underway.  If you are interested in being a speaker or launching a new REC event in your area, please contact Rene’ Rutan, The Fund’s REC Relations Manager at This email address is being protected from spambots.
