Fellow REALTORS®, Affiliates, Sponsors, soon-to-be REALTORS® and soon-to-be Affiliates!
This is my mid-year presidential letter update to say thank you for being a member of CFCAR! This has been the most unusual year in my commercial real estate career. It is not over yet! I would imagine that for my peers, this would apply to them also. On a side note, for all the younger practitioners, there is only one way to go and that is up!
COVID-19 came and gave us a reality check. With the proper precautions and being creative, there is HOPE and OPTIMISM to grow your real estate business. We are here to help you do that! “Hope is a strong word, but the true strength of its meaning starts from within. If you have hope, you have the power of facing any challenge.” “Optimism means, you can face any challenge and win!”
We are the “go to” commercial real estate organization and we work in tandem with other real estate groups, including NAIOP, CCIM, SIOR, and CREW to promote a unified approach to commercial real estate. We are the leaders in the commercial real estate world along with the support of a great staff, and we have access to the benefits of being a REALTOR®.
Our goal is to help you get more business!!! Our socials help you build your business, network with new friends, and have fun. REALTOR® Membership in CFCAR includes automatic membership in NAR and FR. You will get free legal advice, technology support, access to updated real estate forms, data systems, and special discounts with CREXI commercial listing service.
This may, also, be the time to get your CCIM, SIOR, IREM, CIPS designations and all courses can be done on-line! CFCAR can guide you through the process.
It is time to think about the Hallmark Awards in early 2021, as we honor the “Best of the Best” in commercial real estate. We include all major industry categories and the 10 Central Florida counties. Now is the time to execute your plan to have a strong second half of the year…get on the Hallmark stage and be honored for your outstanding year…doubly so…because you did not let COVID-19 get the best of you!!
Join us… you have nothing to lose except more business for you and your company!!
Call me directly at 407-341-0805 if you have any questions on joining or becoming a sponsor or call any of our board members!
Thank you for allowing me to be your President,
Paul P Partyka,
CCIM, MICP, REALTOR
Dear Fellow CFCAR Members,
As the documented cases and concerns surrounding coronavirus and COVID-19 increase, we want you to know that CFCAR’s primary goal is to serve our membership while keeping you and employees safe. CFCAR is fortunate in that we do not have any events-in-waiting that must be cancelled and rescheduled. Please watch for future announcements as circumstances change.
Florida Realtors®, and the National Association of REALTORS® have each announced changes to their schedules of classes and events. In addition, your associations are providing lots of REALTOR®-specific resources and information that we encourage you to read.
This is a critical moment in time. Please help mitigate the spread of the virus and its potential impact on us, our customers, and our economy by respecting the Centers for Disease Control’s guidelines and best practices (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html). It is crucial that we all practice recommendations for social distancing, hand washing, and other measures, in addition to following the instructions of our local governments.
Our focus will continue to be on serving you and remaining in open communications with our membership.
Paul P Partyka, CCIM, MICP
