The Gold Circle Awards recognize excellence in the creativity, execution and success of outstanding marketing, membership and communications programs among the association community.
“We are honored to receive this outstanding recognition for Florida Realtor magazine and excited to share it with our Realtor® members across Florida,” said Florida Realtors President G.

Earning the Gold Circle Award shines a spotlight for members on this exuberant experience and rich return on investment, which also builds community and enhances Florida Realtors’ brand.”
