Florida Realtors' 2022 Goals: Advocacy, Leadership, Tech, Inclusivity

Get to know Florida Realtors President Christina Pappas and find out what's in store for the coming year.

In 2022, Christina Pappas takes the helm of the nation's largest state Realtor association — and her goal is to keep "Building Up Business" across the state.

 “We are a powerful voice for homeowners throughout Florida," Pappas said, as she outlined her primary focuses for the year:

2022 goals

Advocacy engagement

Realtors® are advocates by nature, they advocate for their clients, customers and communities. It is this advocacy that represents the Realtor difference. Realtors secured $100 billion in rental assistance nationally, and while you took necessary steps to protect your families and the public while continuing to sell real estate, the Realtor association secured the COVID-19 Liability protection statute to protect you from frivolous lawsuits. Realtors are advocates and the mission continues.

Leadership, building people & business

 As the largest state association in the country, we will boldly continue to lead the nation in valuable programs, products, services, events, issues and initiatives. Plus, we’ll build on these to the benefit of our more than 250,000 members and Florida’s families and businesses.

Applied tech

Florida Realtors offers the most complete set of technology tools to our members and Realtors nationwide. The association continues to innovate and improve on those tools.

 Active inclusion

Christina Pappas

We’ll strengthen our people and profession by engaging and energizing brokers, spotlighting our legal magic and muscle, galvanizing our global crusaders and honoring diversity. In 2022, the Leadership Team decided that Diversity will be a standing committee and no longer a Breakout Group under the Legislative Think Tank.
