Rob Brooks

 Emerald Coast Association of Realtors ECAR Director Rob Brooks recently received an Editorial Excellence Award from Florida Realtors Magazine during the 2015 Florida Realtors Convention and Trade Expo.

“I was humbled because I didn’t think what I had accomplished was on par with the other recognition given that day,” said Brooks. “It was humbling and uplifting at the same time.”

Brooks received the award for the content he and his team provided for the Starring Your City feature article about his video series, “Where I Live,” in the January/February edition of Florida Realtors Magazine.

Brooks is known throughout the state for the Rob Brooks Realty video marketing series. It includes various updates from Brooks and his team sharing their knowledge of the local community through restaurant reviews and sneak peeks of area landmarks.

Brooks said he could have not provided the content for the series without the contributions of his team at Rob Brooks Realty.

Brooks said he was grateful to the many members of his team who contributed to the project and its success including Shawn Malcolm, Suzanne Clarke, Brenda Follis-Lengyel, Doug Bogan, Julia Holmes and Laura Gerard. Additionally, he said Kaylie Becker, his marketing manager, was instrumental in the project’s success from start to finish.

“She was always there to make sure our content in each video was both relevant and valuable,” Brooks said.

Active at Florida Realtors, Brooks has served on the Council of Real Estate Brokers (CRB) committee and also serves in numerous capacities at the local level. He previously served as chairperson of ECAR's Professional Development committee.
