Cynthia Shelton, president of the Florida Association of Realtors, said legislative issues, including Amendment 4, formerly known as Florida Hometown Democracy, and Amendment 3, which effectively seeks to lower the cap on property tax increases to 5 percent from 10 percent, require a unified response from state realtors. Although numbers have shrunk statewide over the past three years, to 120,000 from 172,000, the group retains clout on government issues, she said.
