Jupiter-based real estate broker and IPRE manager assumes influential statewide role
Illustrated Properties applauds Jupiter-based real estate broker and manager Patti Fitzgerald on her appointment as the new Chair of the Florida Real Estate Commission (FREC). An accomplished broker with a long history of real estate involvement, Fitzgerald is set to continue her positive impact on the industry in this new role.
FREC was created to educate and regulate real estate licenses. The commission has seven members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Florida Senate. Members are appointed for four-year terms.
Fitzgerald has served as a FREC Commissioner since 2016, most recently as Vice-Chair.
“I am humbled to take on this important position with FREC and further advance the educational opportunities for Florida real estate brokers,” Fitzgerald said. “With so much incredible real estate activity occurring throughout our state, this is a pivotal time to ensure best practices are being taught and applied by industry professionals. I greatly appreciate the support of my IPRE family.”
Fitzgerald has been with IPRE since 2010, when she sold her own successful real estate firm. At IPRE, she mentors, educates and supports the Jupiter team while serving the broader industry in many ways. Fitzgerald’s involvement has included the Executive Women of the Palm Beaches, Leadership Palm Beach County, Women of the Moose and active memberships with Miami Realtors, Florida Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.
A longtime Jupiter resident, Fitzgerald and her husband, Henry Blakiston, enjoy precious time with their three children and seven grandchildren.
“We congratulate Patti Fitzgerald on her prestigious FREC appointment,” IPRE President Daniel Dennis said. “Her decades of service to our firm and the industry inspires all of us at IPRE.”
