Miami, FL (PRWEB)December 16, 2015
For the fifth consecutive year, the MIAMI Association of REALTORS® (MIAMI) has earned the National Association of REALTORS (NAR) Platinum Award for Global Achievement. The platinum award is the highest distinction bestowed by NAR to an association for its ability to expand the global business opportunities of its members. MIAMI is the only association in the U.S. to achieve Platinum Council status each year since the program’s inception in 2011.
Among the 110 global councils operating nationwide, only 17 were named Platinum Councils in 2015. Jupiter-Tequesta-Hobe Sound Association of Realtors (JTHS), which merged with MIAMI in September, earned gold status. NAR also recognized other leading real estate associations with gold and silver classifications. Associations are evaluated for communication, outreach, member value, education and media/publicity.
“Being named a Platinum Council for the fifth consecutive year exemplifies our commitment to international business expansion and excellence,” said John Dohm, the 2015 MIAMI Chairman. “South Florida is the nation’s leading destination for international home buyers and investment. Through our Realtor education, media relations and member outreach departments, MIAMI is focused on helping its 41,000-plus members capture a larger share of the global real estate market.”
MIAMI has 136 international partnerships, which help create greater exposure for South Florida and the local real estate market, increased business opportunities and a stronger economy.
NAR made its global achievement presentations at the International Night Out Dinner at the REALTORS® Conference and Expo in November in San Diego. As part of being honored with NAR’s highest global council distinction, MIAMI will be featured with a profile on Realtor.org/global.
