Greater Tampa REALTORS® begins year-long 110th Anniversary Celebration.
TAMPA, FL – On March 18, 1911, Greater Tampa REALTORS® opened its doors as the Tampa Real Estate Board when the National Association of Real Estate Boards elected it to membership and conveyed upon it the privilege of using the designation ® “REALTORS ,” The Tampa Real Estate Board was the first real estate board in the state of Florida. That was 110 years ago as of March 18, 2021.
Over this long and illustrious history, Tampa Bay area REALTORS® have worked together to create a very special community in which private property rights, homeownership, diversity and ethical behaviors are the cornerstones of professional success, wonderful lifestyles and a powerful legacy. Through boom times, economic depressions, wars and now, even though a global pandemic, Tampa Bay REALTORS® have never lost sight of the importance of their efforts working together and the fact that their work has had and continues to have a positive impact upon the lives of many generations of Tampa Bay area families.
Over the next year, GTR will celebrate the centuries of community contributions of REALTORS®. The challenges of a new economy, changing social patterns and a vibrant real estate marketplace in transition will require the attention, professional skills and commitment of the membership that’s now approaching at 14,000 members.
Ellie Lambert, GTR’s 2021 President, stated that the “GTR leadership and staff are hard at work creating memorable moments, reflections and surprises that will lead up to a dynamic celebration in October” which will be hosted at GTR’s 2Snd Annual Convention. She further states that, “Working together, we will reimagine our roles and our marketplace as we build a stronger, more dynamic REALTORS® community.”
