This year’s Educator of the Year, Steven David, accepts his award from Florida Realtors President Maria Wells at the recent 2017 convention and trade expo.
ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 28, 2017— Florida Realtors® has named Steven David as the winner of its Educator of the Year Award for 2017. The awards were presented during the state association’s recent 101st annual Convention & Trade Expo at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Fla.
A member of the Realtors® of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Lauderdale, David has spent more than 40 years as a Realtor – and during much of that time, he’s also been a popular and productive instructor.
He has served on numerous committees for both his local association and Florida Realtors, and graduated from both organization’s Leadership Academies. In fact, he served as the chairman of the very first Florida Realtors Leadership Academy.
Not only has David taught a variety of classes at the local and state level, he also has been an instructor for the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) and served as a NAR speaker. He has developed tax, risk management and leadership programs for other states – including Tennessee, Wisconsin, Virginia and North Carolina – and for low-income housing agencies. David recently taught close to 20 classes at several local associations, including contracts, negotiating skills, tax, investments, business planning, goal setting and more.
He puts his skills as an educator to work in the community. David often participates in community events sponsored by his local Realtor association, teaching area residents about responsible homeownership and how to become a homeowner. And he helps to provide counseling and housing placement for homeless families and individuals through the nonprofit, The Broward Partnership, which is committed to reducing homelessness by promoting independence and self-worth through advocacy, housing and comprehensive services.
