The global awards honor the most active Realtor associations working internationally. Diamond, the highest level, requires platinum level 5 years in a row.
ORLANDO, Fla. – The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) honored Florida Realtors® with a 2022 Diamond Global Achievement Award for its activity in developing and promoting the state’s international real estate market. Florida is the first state association in the U.S. to receive the Diamond Award; before applying for Diamond status, Florida Realtors had to receive NAR’s Global Platinum Award for five consecutive years.
“We’re proud and honored to have NAR recognize Florida Realtors with the Diamond Global Achievement Award – our global Realtor family working together made this possible, and we thank everyone involved,” says Florida Realtors Director of Global Business Maria Grulich, CIPS, AHWD. “Florida Realtors’ Global Business Committee’s goals are to provide resources to our local global councils, promote Florida real estate to international buyers and provide a platform that helps Realtors engage and connect with real estate professionals all over the world.
“We encourage members to join us for our international events in 2023 and go global!”
NAR’s Global Achievement Program Awards recognize the most active associations in global business. Among over 110 global business councils nationwide, each of these organizations has demonstrated “exceptional commitment to building members’ awareness of the global and multicultural business opportunities in their local markets.”
Participating councils are divided into four status classifications based on their level of activity: Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. A number of local Realtor boards and associations in Florida also were recognized by NAR for their global business activities, including:
- Florida Realtors (achieved in 2022)
