Local Lake Mary Realtor becomes 1st Board Certified Florida Realtor in Orlando and the surrounding areas.

Lake Mary08/20/2023 – Daniel Angel Lopez, CRB, CRS, GRI, ABR, PSA, CIPS, MRP, AHWD, a real estate agent and past board of director with Orlando Regional Realtor® Association has earned the endorsement of a Board Certified Professional from Florida Realtors®. Lopez is part of the inaugural class of 20 Realtors in Florida who now have the right to call themselves a Florida Realtors Board Certified Professional.
“A Florida Realtors Board Certified Professional is a Realtor that has earned the distinction of high competence and professionalism through ongoing work in sales, volunteerism, advocacy and ethical treatment of the public, consumers and other Realtors,” says Stacy Stahl, chair of the Florida Realtors Board Certified Professionalism Endorsement Trustee Group.
“Doctors and lawyers have distinctive board certification credentials that help the public identify and choose the provider they prefer,” says Florida Realtors President G. Mike McGraw, a broker-associate with RE/MAX Central Realty in Apopka. “But how do you easily identify the top professionals in our field? As one of the largest professions in our state, we need to promote Realtor members that work at the highest levels of professionalism – and we accomplish this with our new Florida Realtors Board Certified Professional program.”
A Florida Realtors’ advisory group on industry professionalism led to the development of the Board-Certified Professional program. With so many new licensees entering the profession each year, certification was deemed necessary, not only to honor those working at the peak of their profession, but also to create a benchmark for new Realtors to work toward. It’s currently geared toward associates, with a broker option expected as a next step.
“Taking the time and effort to increase professionalism is not only the right thing to do, it strengthens the value of being a Realtor and a member of our local, state and national organizations,” McGraw says. “Ultimately, it is for the benefit of home buyers and sellers, who gain peace of mind from knowing they’re working with consummate professionals. We’re proud of Florida Realtors’ members like Daniel Lopez for going above and beyond to demonstrate their professionalism and dedication to helping make the dream of home and property ownership come true.”
