Chere Roane, a member of the Orlando Regional Realtor Association (ORRA) and the Central Florida Commercial Association of REALTORS (CFCAR), received the 2020 Commercial Realtor Achievement Award at the 2020 Florida Realtors Awards.
The Commercial Realtor Achievement Award honors a Realtor’s lifetime of contributions to commercial activities at the local, state, national and community levels.
Honored by ORRA as its 2017 Realtor of the Year and as its 2018 Presidential Award recipient, Roane has worked tirelessly with the ORRA Realtors Commercial Council from its beginning to its current member base of more than 400 Realtors. She is a mentor to many members, encouraging those interested to earn their CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) designation. Roan helped the transition team that made the Central Florida Commercial Association of REALTORS a reality, serving first as a member of the Board of Directors, then as president in 2011.
At the state level, she has served on numerous Florida Realtors committees, including Commercial Alliance, Legislative Task Force, RPAC and the Building Fund, to name a few over the years. Roane is a 2010 graduate of Florida Realtors Leadership Academy and a 15-year member of its Honor Society. She also has served the National Association of Realtors (NAR) on many committees, including Consumer Communications, Governmental Affairs, and Leading Edge Advisory Board. Currently, she is a member of NAR’s Commercial and Commercial Legislative committees. Roane also is a graduate of its JW Levin Leadership Academy.
In the community, she is a past president of the Orlando Evening Rotary Club; is part of the Golden Eagle Boy Scouts event that works closely with Boy Scout Troop 24 (her grandson is now an Eagle Scout); a member of the American Legion Post 19; and an auxiliary member with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) post 2093. Roane works closely with veterans’ groups and is a strong advocate for organizations that assist the elderly in the Orlando area.
