Florida Realtors Win Best of the Web Award
ORLANDO, FL - Florida Realtors' member website, www.floridarealtors.org, took top honors nationally in the prestigious "2010 Outstanding Realtor Association Web Site Contest," sponsored by the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) and Realtor Association Executive Magazine.

The floridarealtors.org site was named as a "Best of the Web" winner for its focus on delivering outstanding member services online. "This site seems to have a personality – it's an inviting place to visit," the judges noted, referring to the conversational tone of its content, the people photos sprinkled throughout and various interactive options for members.

"We are very proud and honored that Florida Realtors' member website has been recognized by NAR as one of the 'Best of the Web'," said 2010 Florida Realtors President Wendell Davis, a broker with Watson Realty Corp. in Jacksonville. "Everyone connected to floridarealtors.org strives to make it a place where Realtors will find the products, services and other materials they need to help their clients and succeed in their businesses. The web team is always introducing new technologies and content areas including podcasts, streaming news, video new programs and audio programs — all with the goal in mind of better serving our Realtor membership."

Florida Realtors' website was commended for representing the innovation, commitment and excellence all Realtor organizations strive to achieve. This year's website award marks the third time that floridarealtors.org has been honored by NAR since it launched in January 2007. During its inaugural year, the site was recognized by NAR as a top 2007 winner for outstanding website design. Then in 2008, its "Great Time to Buy Florida" microsite won in the NAR contest's outstanding member service feature category.

Florida Realtors CEO John Fridlington said, "Floridarealtors.org consistently ranks as one of the state association's top member benefits, and with good reason. It provides valuable tools and resources from a trusted source, and delivers information in a fun, entertaining and engaging way."

From the latest news and education offerings, to valuable research, current housing statistics and varied multimedia content, the judges found nothing lacking. "This site has numerous advantages for its members," one judge said. "They can set up their own 'My Favorites' page and customize the site to their needs. There's lots of information on building their business and being informed on what's happening."

The judging panel reviewed nearly 50 entries in the 2010 Web Site Contest, selecting only three as the "Best of the Web." Along with Florida Realtors' site, www.floridarealtors.org, the other winners included the websites of the Chicago Association of Realtors, www.chicagorealtor.com, and the Greater Rochester Association of Realtors, N.Y., www.grar.org.
