RAPB + GFLR President Jeffrey Levine

Jeffrey Levine, a broker associate and productivity coach for Keller Williams Realty Services in Boca Raton, was just installed as President of the Realtors® of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Lauderdale (RAPB + GFLR). RAPB + GFLR is the third largest association in the country with 33,000 Realtor® members and subscribers.

“I appreciate the opportunity that I have received to serve RAPB + GFLR members as their President and look forward to helping our members grow their businesses in 2019,” said Levine. “As a fellow Realtor®, one aspect of the real estate industry that has always caught my eye was the importance of finding creative ways to stay at the forefront of our consumers’ minds. To thrive in this industry, you have to relate to your customers.”

Levine’s hard work in the real estate industry has led to him receiving numerous awards and recognition including Realtor® Association of the Palm Beaches’ Broker of the Year for Large Size Brokerages in 2014. In 2015, Levine was named as RPAC Chairman for the State of Florida, and in 2017, he was named the first Realtor® of the Year for RAPB + GFLR

A leader in regional, state and national real estate organizations, Levine serves on the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) and Florida Realtors® Board of Directors. He was recently named as 2019 Chair on the NAR Business Issues Policy Committee and Vice Chair of Florida Realtors® Major Investor Recognition Subcommittee.

As President of RAPB + GFLR, Levine will bring his strong work ethic to the position and plans to focus on bridging the gap between Realtors® and consumers.

My goal as President is to develop relatable stories and content that can help connect Realtors® to their community

said Levine. “Reaching out into the community and helping consumers understand what we as Realtors® can do to help make their lives easier will drastically change our industry. I’m challenging our members to tell their unique stories and center them around three questions; ‘Why did you become a Realtor®?’, ‘What did you do before real estate?’, and ‘Who inspires your business?’” continues Levine.
