Teresa King Kinney
CEO, Miami Realtors
MIAMI Association of REALTORS® (MIAMI) Chief Executive Officer Teresa King Kinney has led the nation’s largest local Realtor association for 25 years, playing an integral role in making Miami a top real estate market for both domestic and international investment. Kinney came to Miami from St. Joseph, Missouri, where she had been CEO for the Realtor association for many years. When Kinney began with MIAMI in August 16, 1993, the board had just 5,000 members. Over the past 25 years, Kinney would lead the association to unprecedented growth. Today, the MIAMI board has more than 46,000 members in four counties (Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Martin). Under Kinney’s leadership, MIAMI launched landmark and innovative global partnerships, brought an unparalleled number of new and exclusive Realtor products and services to its members and merged with several local boards. MIAMI’s first merger under Kinney was in 1997 when the association merged with the Miami Beach association, followed by mergers in 2010 and 2015.
