The Greater Fort Lauderdale Realtors is now the official U.S. ambassador for the Brazilian Federal Council for Real Estate professionals, the Brazilian equivalent of the National Association of Realtors. The COFECI is the largest professional trade organization for realtors in Brazil, with more than 250,000 members, and the largest real estate organization in Latin America. According to GFLR President Stephen McWilliam, the group is working with COFECI to bring membership standards and practices that are similar to those in the United States. GFLR will also be working to link all of its MLS listings to the Brazilian marketplace through COFECI’s membership. — Alexander Britell
