Fioretti also served NABOR’s Dean of Orientation from 2012-2018 and was instrumental in revamping the orientation for new members.
At the state level, she served on many Florida Realtors committees, including as chair of the Research Advisory Board and of the Legislative & Regulatory Research Breakout Session. She has served on the state association’s Board of Directors from 2006-2011, and from 2014 to the present. Fioretti currently is a member of Florida Realtors Education Foundation Board of Directors.
On the national level, she has served on the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Professional Standards Committee, the Interpretations and Procedures Advisory Board, Board of Directors, and is a current member of the Research Committee. She was named a Realtor Emeritus by NAR in 2013.
