FIU Real Estate Alumni Affinity Council (REAAC), in partnership with The Jerome Bain Real Estate Institute and the FIU Real Estate Student Association, hosted the Fifth Annual Real Estate Awards Luncheon on October 7th, 2005, at the Bankers Club in Downtown Miami. More than 100 alumni and real estate professionals gathered at this networking event to honor leaders in real estate who have supported the University’s Real Estate programs and the Institute throughout the past 2004-2005 academic year.
The event featured keynote speaker, Frank Kowalski, president of the Association of REALTORS®, who discussed the “The Future of South Florida’s Real Estate Market.”
The goal shared by Kowalski and his 2005 leadership team is to help Florida REALTORS® prosper, grow their businesses, and gain even more value from their association memberships—a goal accomplished only by a “team effort”. Kowalski is a firm believer in the strength and value of “TEAM,” reflected in his motto, “Together Everyone Achieves More!”
