Although Moneycorp is very established overseas and in Central Florida, we were new to South Florida in 2014. Making the choice to align ourselves as an affiliate at the Miami Realtor Association made perfect sense and has proven to be a wonderful partnership. The staff is very accommodating and the selection of class sponsorships has provided beneficial networking opportunities that has resulted in new business. Being an affiliate member has sped up our market reach over the last year and has helped us to position ourselves as the experts in currency exchange and international transfers in South Florida.

Being an affiliated member of Miami/Broward Association is always the first line item in my annual budget. We connect with hundreds of industry partners throughout the year with all the events hosted by the association. The networking and the business we get from our affiliation membership pays for itself two times over.

Over the past few years, CORT has participated in sponsorships for several events and classes ( International Congress, Luxury Homes and Developer Showcase) and has developed relationships with your Realtor members. The Luxury Homes classes have been rewarding to sponsor - I always come away with solid leads. The Annual Inaugural Luncheon is amazing with excellent member engagement. We have also been a Corporate Partner for ancillary projects and also appreciate that exposure.

Flamingo Title Services has been an affiliate member of the Miami Association of Realtors a little over a year now. In this short period of time the Association has offered many opportunities to sponsor specialty classes, New Member Orientation and networking events such as Business After Hours. Being able to connect directly with the members' has helped our company meet new agents and start lasting relationships. We wonder why we didn't become an affiliate member sooner!
- Jennifer Yudice, Flamingo Title Services Inc. Marketing Director
“Mr. Rekey is a national company and we spend thousands of dollars every week in marketing trying to reach potential customers.  I personally spend 30 - 40 hours a week driving around south Florida trying to introduce my company to property managers and real estate professionals.  By becoming an affiliate member of the Miami Association of REALTORS, for a minimal investment in money and time, I can connect directly with the people that have a need for our service!  Last Friday I sponsored an event and walked away with 40 new contacts in just a couple of hours!  Way more time/cost effective and productive than I could be cold calling or emailing.”
-Bill Steiner, Mr. Rekey, Area Development Manager South Florida

"Our office has been involved with the Broward Council of the MIAMI Association of REALTORS for the past year. They have allowed me the opportunity to provide seminars to their members and sponsor their networking events that have allowed me to meet and work with numerous Realtors that I would have never met without the association's support. This has allowed my company to continue to grow and be successful. I look forward to working with the association for many years to come.

I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to have Citibank sponsor the Association's DBW Mexico. It was a great experience for Citi. We were able to introduce our global program and made several good contacts. In addition it was great to have one of our Home Lending Specialist and a Citi Gold Manager attend and present at this event. Carla, our Citi Gold Manager, has already received two referrals from the presentation. We look forward to a long and profitable relationship with Miami Association of Realtors."

"What a great year! On behalf of Allied Building Inspection Services, I thank you very much for the opportunity to sponsor the MAR events over the last year. Our sponsorship, particularly at the Jungle Island Installation and of the Little Havana Bus Tours has allowed us to witness excellence in action! As a sponsor, we received the opportunity to meet great people and forge lasting relationships, while attending excellent events with informative lecturers. We feel so fortunate to be affiliated with the MAR and RCA. Our sponsorship and affiliation has added credibility and allowed Allied Building Inspection Services to give a little back to the real estate community. We look forward to another great year and continued sponsorship in 2012-13 and continuing to help MAR and its members in any way we can. Your service is a role model to us and we are blessed to be here to sponsor and serve you!"
