Miami, FL – For the third consecutive year, the National Association of REALTORS has honored the Miami Association of Realtors (MIAMI) with its prestigious Platinum Award as part of its Global Achievement Program. MIAMI, the largest local Realtor association in the nation, is the only association to achieve Platinum Council status each year since the program’s inception in 2011.
MIAMI was one of just a handful of associations to have been recognized with the NAR program’s highest honor. NAR also recognized other leading real estate associations from across the country with gold and silver classifications.
“We are honored that by recognizing MIAMI with its prestigious Platinum Award for three consecutive years, reflecting our commitment to international business expansion and excellence,” said 2013 MIAMI Chairman Natascha Tello. “Our dedication to attracting international investment to Miami is instrumental in increasing the profitability of our 30,000 members. This award is a testament to MIAMI’s leading-edge accomplishments and innovative philosophy.”
In recognizing MIAMI, the National Association of REALTORS noted MIAMI has “demonstrated exceptional commitment to building members’ awareness of the global and multicultural business opportunities in its local markets.”
NAR presented the prestigious award to MIAMI’s 2013 Chairman of the Board Natascha Tello and other MIAMI leaders and executive staff at the International Night Event during the Realtors Conference and Expo in San Francisco in November. In addition, MIAMI will be featured with a profile on Realtor.org/global and has again been invited to host a webinar for NAR members and association executives detailing the council’s case study and offering best practices.
