The Polk Area Real Estate Council held its Annual Attorney/Realtor Mixer at Nineteen61 in Lakeland on October 6th.  The event, which is coordinated with Lakeland Realtors® offered over 60 area real estate agents an opportunity to network with local real estate attorneys, and to hear a presentation addressing common issues leading to closing delays and failures.  Speakers included Kyle Jensen of Clark, Campbell, Lancaster, Workman & Airth, P.A., Keith Wadsworth of Peterson & Myers, P.A and Philip Bush of Miller Troiano, P.A.

If your Real Estate Council, or you individually, present FREC-accredited seminars to Real Estate Agents, you will be interested to know that the Florida Real Estate Commission has issued an Emergency Rule,  61J2ER22-1 Use of Live Streaming Technology for Delivery of Approved In-Person Education Courses, as a result of Hurricane Ian.  The Rule provides that from October 27, 2022, until January 24, 2023 (90 days) approved in-person FREC-accredited offerings may be live-streamed.  This appears to be similar to the emergency rules issued during the pandemic.  If you have any questions, or would like a full copy of the Rule, please contact Robert Rohan, The Fund’s Regulatory Compliance Counsel at This email address is being protected from spambots.
