Stephan Mihacevich

Stephan Mihacevich, Realtor with Pelican Real Estate & Development Company located in Destin, attended Florida Realtors 97th annual Convention & Trade Expo held Aug. 14-18 at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando.

Each year, the Convention & Trade Expo brings Realtors from around the state together to discuss and vote on key issues that shape their profession and state association. In addition to committee meetings, members attend more than 35 educational seminars on effective negotiation, property management, working with global referrals, lead generation, developing a real estate niche and more.

At the annual convention, Mihacevich participated in committee work with the Women’s Council of Realtors and was elected to the WCR Florida nominating committee. He is currently the Women’s Council of Realtors of the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors local chapter president-elect. His contributions in the Global Committee and Global Forum were received and noted by the guest speaker, Assistant Secretary for the Private Sector, Douglas Smith, Department of Homeland Security, regarding FEMA flood insurance and the Coastal Barrier Resources System (COBRA Zone).

One of this year’s highlights was a general session featuring The Property Brothers — twins Drew and Jonathan Scott, stars of such HGTV series as “The Property Brothers,” “Buying and Selling,” and “Brother Against Brother.” The Scott brothers shared inside stories about what happens on their shows and revealed their secrets for success.

Convention-goers also rocked out for “A Night in Chicago” as the band Brass Transit delivered a concert that was the ultimate Chicago experience. Meanwhile juggler, comedian and entertainer Frank Miles used his skills to illustrate how to overcome personal limits and achieve success during the Keynote Awards Luncheon. Real estate professionals across Florida also took advantage of this year’s Trade Expo, featuring more than 150 booths with the latest products, technology and other business tools.
