NAR started with 300 applications, whittled that down to 50 and, on Monday, announced its final picks. Three Fla. inductees hail from Miami, Orlando and Seffner.
ORLANDO, Fla. – The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) has identified the rising stars in the real estate industry through its 30 Under 30 recognition. And of those 30, 10% live in Florida.

About 300 young real estate practitioners applied for NAR’s 30 Under 30 this year:
- In early March, judges narrowed the field to 50 finalists.
- From March 24-31, members of the public cast a total of 57,881 votes during the weeklong Web Choice Award voting period. With 5,277 votes, Kelly Carlson with Engel & Völkers in Chicago emerged at the top as the Web Choice winner, solidifying her place in the 30 Under 30 class.
- Judges then selected the other 29 honorees from the group of finalists.
According to NAR, the latest class “walks a different path than many of the 30 Under 30 honorees who have come before them. They’re forgoing platforms like Facebook in exchange for door knocking. When they’re on social media, they’re communicating with their clients through videos on YouTube or TikTok.”
NAR calls them “innovative, determined and selfless.”
