ORLANDO, Fla., July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ragan Communications has announced that Florida Realtors won the top honor in Ragan's 2013 PR Daily Awards for Best External Publication (Online or Print) for Florida Realtor magazine.
"To be recognized by Ragan Communications among so many outstanding winners is a stellar accomplishment for Florida Realtors and Florida Realtor magazine," said 2013 Florida Realtors President Dean Asher, broker-owner with Don Asher & Associates Inc. in Orlando. "The unique collaborative partnership of Realtor members, leadership and staff is what makes Florida Realtors so successful, and such national recognition even possible."
Judges for Ragan's PR Daily Awards said that Florida Realtor magazine is "as eye-catching as a consumer magazine," and "grabs reader interest with lively design, tip-heavy articles and a dynamic cover that leads readers to stories."
They also said: "Florida Realtor magazine offers a fresh take on its business, providing tip-heavy features its readers surely devour, clip, and pass around. … The cover also successfully uses the front-page real estate with teasers, bright design and topics that would make it at home on any bookstore or supermarket magazine rack. While many organizational publications waste their covers with vague headlines and minimal content, Florida Realtor shouts to be opened, read and shared."
In the words of Editor-in-Chief Doug Damerst, the goal is to "pack the magazine with peer-to-peer conversations about what's working and where business can be found."
