2012 Florida Great American Realtor Days! Join us!


What Are Great American Realtor Days?

Great American Realtor Days are two days set aside during Florida’s legislative session when Realtors converge on the Capitol to voice their opinions on legislative issues.

Members are briefed on the status of pending real estate legislation and meet with and lobby legislators.

2012 GARD Dates

Every 10 years redistricting occurs and the Legislative Session is held earlier in the year.  The session dates for 2012 are Jan. 10 – March 9.  Great American Realtor Days is set for Feb. 14 – 15. Register now and don’t miss this excellent opportunity for your voice to be heard in Tallahassee.

Location!  Location!  Location!

The Legislative briefings for Great American Realtor Days will be at the Challenger Learning Center (CLC), the same as last year.  All events are within walking distance, and the CLC provides a great venue for our briefings and registration.

The CLC is just two blocks west of the Florida Realtors Public Policy office and two blocks north of the Capitol, so you’ll have an easy time getting from the briefings to those important meetings with your legislators.

Join the Party!

Half way between the CLC and Florida Realtors office on Adams Street, you’ll find the annual Florida Realtors Block Party on Feb. 14, beginning at 5:30 p.m.  Sponsor a food or drink station at the “Taste of Florida Block Party”.  Download the sponsor form here.


The parking garage at Kleman Plaza, located at the Challenger Learning Center,  and where the briefings will be held, might become full.  You will also be able to park at the Civic Center, at no charge, and take the Realtor shuttle bus to Kleman Plaza/CLC.  The shuttle will run continuously on Tuesday, Feb. 14, from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. and on Wed. Feb. 15, from 8 a.m – 5 p.m.

Briefing Location

We’ll be providing four Legislative Briefings in the IMAX theatre, which seats 287.  Two briefings will be live and two will be pre-recorded, so you can attend a briefing session that suits your schedule.

If you have questions, or need assistance, please contact Suzanne Hughes in the Tallahassee Office of Public Policy at 850.224.1400,


Due to seasonal conditions, the courtyard luncheon will not be held.  Instead, a boxed lunch will be provided on Kleman Plaza by the Challenger Learning Center on Wed., Feb. 15. Please indicate on the registration form if you would like a boxed lunch.
