If I live in Orlando, may I choose another board of Realtors that is not Orlando Board of Realtors?

Yes – The National Associaton of REALTORS(r) has long supported Board of Choice. However, before you make that decision, I would strongly encourage you to call Michael Kidd to personally share your disappointment with the Associaton. He is a great man and has an open door policy. Your feedback may go along way toward repairing any dissatisfaction that may be infecting the membership in more significant ways than he realizes. You cannot satisfy everyone all of the time, but you can try to resolve problems along the way.
