TAMPA, FL —(August 24, 2017)—Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate’s Connie Johnson was named the Associate REALTOR® of the Year by Florida Realtors®. Johnson has been with Coldwell Banker’s Brandon Central office for more than twenty years and is a staple in the real estate industry of the greater Brandon area.

 “It is an honor to serve as the broker for Connie Johnson and have had the opportunity to work closely with such a respected individual.  I have witnessed first-hand the respect that Connie has at the local, state and national levels.  Her service to all REALTOR Associations is beyond admirable.  Connie’s love for what she does is apparent in everything she touches,” said Debbie Flanagan, managing broker, Brandon Central, Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate.

For her continued dedication and service to Greater Tampa Realtors, she received the Edward T.
