Earlier this week, members of CFCAR and CFCREA invited the entire CRE community to "meetup" at the AC Skybar at the new Marriott AC Hotel next to Church Street Station in downtown Orlando.
While not technically a CFCAR hosted event, CFCAR and CFREA invited those in the CRE community to join in for free, gather and share a drink (or two) and help make deals.
Some future socials are going to be private members-only events and some will be a "Meetup", where we invite the whole CRE community to join us. To join that group, please click HERE.

CFCAR continues to get “Back to Business” as usual with a well-attended Social at the Dovecote Restaurant in downtown Orlando on May 12th. We had over thirty people in attendance. In addition to our Orlando brokers and affiliates, we had members that travelled from Titusville, Daytona Beach, Lake County, Osceola County and Lakeland to take advantage of this networking opportunity. This was an exceptionally charitable group raising $480 from a silent auction for the Steward Marchman Act/ Behavioral Association. Hope to see you all at our June Social in Lake Mary! Don't miss our next social at Friendly Confines in Lake Mary sponsored by Esquire Title Services on June 9th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
In case you missed it, the members of the Central Florida Commercial REALTORS Association joined together in person at the beautiful Margaritaville Resort Orlando. They were "Back To Business" with education, networking, food and fun! Check back often to see when the next CFCAR Social will take place.
