Palm Beach Realtor® Is President-Elect of Florida’s Largest Professional Association
ORLANDO, Fla., February 2018 – Eric Sain, a sales associate and district sales manager with Illustrated Properties in Palm Beach, is the 2018 president-elect of Florida Realtors®, the state’s largest professional association with 180,000 members. “Our state’s real estate market will continue its strong performance in the coming year,” says Sain, who is active in residential sales. “Demand remains high for residential and commercial properties from buyers seeking a better life in Florida.”
A leader in regional, state and national real estate organizations, Sain has served as chairman of the Realtors® Association of the Palm Beaches and was its “Realtor of the Year” in 2010. He has been a director and district vice president of Florida Realtors, and served on many of its boards, forums and committees. He is also a director of the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) and is the 2018 liaison to NAR’s Realtor Party Disbursement Committee.
Sain says there have been many magical moments in his real estate career. “I recently helped a young couple find their first home,” he says. “There were challenges with financing that required special attention and delays with closing due to Hurricane Irma, but when they finally got their keys, they realized a real value in working with a Realtor. To celebrate, their entire extended family joined together to paint and personalize the home.”
In the community, Sain was appointed to a governor’s task force for housing remediation in 2009 and is vice chair the West Palm Beach Flood Plain Management Committee. He also belongs to numerous other business and civic organizations.
"In addition, advocacy is one of our most important services, and Florida Realtors will continue to serve as an effective voice for homeowners and local communities throughout the state.”"
As vice president of the state association, Sain will focus on enhancing Florida Realtors’ services, support and advocacy programs for real estate professionals. “Our industry continues to evolve, and real estate professionals can never stop learning,” he says. “In addition, advocacy is one of our most important services, and Florida Realtors will continue to serve as an effective voice for homeowners and local communities throughout the state.”
