hosted international and local practitioners for a three day Pinellas County experience.
The Florida Gulf Coast Tour took place immediately following the National Association of Realtors® Annual Convention in Orlando (Nov. 12-15, 2012). It provided local Realtors® an opportunity to connect with their international peers and build professional and personal relationships. Visitors from around the world explored the arts, culture, cuisine and real estate in Pinellas County with local Realtors®. The event was an effort to expand networks, attract investment in our remarkable Gulf Coast lifestyle and encourage global understanding and communication. Speakers from Costa Rica, Belize, Mexico, The National Association of Realtors® and Florida Realtors® also provided education to our local agents.
Florida is the #1 destination for foreign investment in the United States.
