We are also proud to be the only commercial association with a consumer-facing public portal. This means more international exposure and visibility for our commercial members.”
The Beacon Council and FPL partnerships are just two examples of an ongoing effort by MIAMI Realtors to market their members’ commercial listings to strategic partners and commercial real estate websites and provide the public with the best resources to make their real estate decisions.
