Helping to protect property owners and Florida as a whole.

As members of the Miami Association of Realtors, we are honored to have one of our principals Brian Sharpe, serving on their board.  As the Commercial President Elect, Mr. Sharpe has been traveling with the Association to places such as Tallahassee, FL and Washington D.C.  While there he (along with other members) have been advocating for their members, owners and renters, and the environment.

Some of the big win items this year involve the property tax cap, a cap on estoppel certificates, housing projects, environmental protection/repair, and a reduction in the business rent tax.


Passed joint resolution to preserve the 10% Cap on Non-Homestead Property Taxes and protect owners from a $725 million tax increase.


Passed SB 398 Which caps estoppel certificate fees and provides other important reforms.


$270 Million for affordable housing, the highest amount of funding in a decade.


Saved business owners $61 Million with a first-ever cut to the business rent tax.


$440 Million for Everglades restoration, beach re-nourishment and springs restoration.
