Associate Member Ana Maria Rodriguez of Miami Association of Realtors has asked that we share their new initiative; Virtual Open House Program.

Good Morning,

We hope this letter finds you, your families and your peers safe and well. With more than 52,000 members, the MIAMI Association of Realtors (MIAMI) is the largest local REALTOR Association in the nation. Our members and the real estate industry are a keystone of the business community and the backbone of the economy. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor DeSantis further evidenced the importance of the housing industry by deeming real estate an essential business in his Executive Order #20-91.

To help ensure continuity in serving local residents with their housing needs, we have created the safe and robust South Florida Virtual Open House Program where our REALTORS – and your residents – can continue to show homes in your cities and communities while adhering to the CDC’s recommended social distancing guidelines.

As fellow community leaders, we invite you to partner with us on this key initiative at NO COST to you.  As a program partner, you agree to share and display the South Florida Virtual Open House link prominently on your website, social media channels and in any email communication. This would be another way to let residents and business leaders know that we are doing our part to serve them and support the economy in challenging times. Your participation in this program will also generate local, national and global exposure and visibility for your organization through our expansive promotion to our members, the business community, consumers, and our 223 Global Partners.

While our Virtual Open Houses will be ongoing, to launch this initiative, we are hosting the South Florida Virtual Open House Week May 1 – May 10, allowing partners ample time to position the South Florida Open House links and market the program to respective audiences.

With acceptance of this great partnership, we will send you simple follow-up links and verbiage that you can post on emails, social media channels, websites and other portals.

We look forward to working with you on this important program and to jointly helping our communities continue to thrive despite the current adversity.
