In her capacity as state director, Berkman will vote on policy matters and remain informed on issues that impact homeowners and sales associates in Florida.

According to Gutierrez, “South Florida is a unique and global market. I’ve learned so much in my time as residential president of the largest local realtor association in the United States, the Miami Association of Realtors, that will help me serve the realtors and homeowners in these markets as district vice president for Florida Realtors. There are opportunities as well as issues and it will be my honor to work with all of our realtor members towards keeping our industry and homeownership rights growing in the right direction.”

“Partners in life, business, and service, Carlos and Ellen are dedicated to their professional growth and commitment to the community just as they are to each other. Carlos and Ellen are excellent demonstrations of success and balance,” said Nancy Klock Corey, Regional Vice President, Southeast Florida Region.
