Rosana Almeida Wins Prestigious Residential Real Estate Award
Florida Connexion’s Founder Recognized for Her Years of Hard Work and Dedication
We’re delighted to announce that Florida Connexion founder Rosana Almeida has been recognized as the No.3 Agent/Broker by listings at the 2019 Orlando Business Journal Residential Real Estate Awards. Each year, the OBJ chooses only 24 individuals, projects and brokerage firms as honorees for the prestigious award, so this is incredible news for Rosana and her team.
Real estate plays an integral role in the U.S. economy. Not only does the real estate industry provide millions of people with jobs each year but it also generates billions of dollars of economic output. Plus, residential real estate investment accounts for 3-5% of the GDP.
In addition to providing housing for families, residential real estate also serves as a source of wealth and savings for people. As a company that has spent nearly a decade helping people find financially secure residential real estate investments, we at Florida Connexion are honored to be a part of such an influential industry.
The awards are in recognition of significant residential property sales or developments that were announced, transactions completed or projects under construction between January 2018-2019. They also recognize several top realtors and brokerage offices in various categories based on their 2018 production.
The Orlando Business Journal’s acknowledgement of Rosana is a testament to her years of hard work and dedication to upholding the highest standards in the real estate industry. Since getting her Realtor license in 2000, Rosana has always had a vision for a real estate brokerage company specializing in international clients. She pioneered the idea of catering to Brazilian investors and entrepreneurs after noticing their interest in the U.S. housing market following the recession.
Rosana is proud to draw on her own personal experiences when it comes to understanding the challenges faced by international investors. Born in the United States, she and her family relocated back to Brazil when she was just a year old. Her first experience purchasing a home in the U.S. was as an international buyer, before she decided to permanently relocate to the U.S. to realize her dreams.
Today, Rosana is an active member of the local real estate industry. She participates in several real estate associations, such as the Orlando Regional Realtor Association, the MIAMI Association of Realtors, Florida Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. Rosana also serves on several committees, including Global Real Estate Council, Task Force and the Broker's Council. She was instrumental in the creation of ORRA’s Gold Key Certification, helping to set a higher standard for real estate professionals.
Rosana also holds the Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS), Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI), Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA), along with the Transnational Referral Certification (TRC) that expands her network with international real estate professionals.
Backed by years of specialized experience, Rosana and the team at Florida Connexion are dedicated to helping international buyers bring their investment dreams to life, as well as educating them on how to navigate the cultural differences they’ll encounter in the U.S.
