Hello fellow EPCAR and Florida Realtors® District 10 member,
As we are sure you know, the Sadowski Fund was set up many years ago to help fund affordable housing initiatives through the collection of documentary stamp taxes at closing. What you might not be aware of yet is that Senate Bill 2512 was passed this past legislative session that permanently cuts the funds available for these such programs in Florida by 50%.
In response to SB 2512, Florida Realtors® will be embarking on a historic endeavor. We are launching a constitutional amendment campaign that will ask voters in 2022 to permanently prevent the use of housing trust fund dollars for anything other than the housing programs they were designed to support.
Please sign the attached petition and help us get this amendment on the ballot. You can drop it off at EPCAR's office or mail it directly to Floridians For Housing, 3515 NW 98th Street, Ste 200, Gainesville, FL 32606. Don't hesitate to ask every registered Florida voter you know to sign the petition.

Business Partner of the Week

Lynda Mattson- Amerifirst Home Mortgage


I have been in the lending industry for over 30 years assisting Realtors, builders and homeowners across Florida. The Mattson Team includes myself, my three loan managers which include Melanie Klimas, Parker Lillie and Celina Smith, loan originator Julian Davis and our dedicated processor Shenise Nelson. When you work with our team, you’ll feel the difference. We work hard to get loans to closing and provide exceptional customer service all along the way. Join us at our downtown Winter Haven office to meet with clients or we’re happy to meet them at your office.


I am a member of the East Polk County Association of Realtors, Lakeland Association of Realtors, and the Winte Haven Chamber of Commerce. I take pleasure in being very involved in the local community as a graduate of Webber University. My husband Ron and I have a son, Julian, two Golden Retrievers and two cats that are totally spoiled. We own a blueberry farm in Winter Haven and are Polk County natives. I am an avid Gator’s fan, love to go fishing and spend as much time as possible on the water boating

with my family. My motto is “God First, Family Second, Fishing & Sunsets The Rest Of The Time”.


I’m excited for many more years of working in the lending industry and assisting clients with their dream of homeownership. My team and I welcome your calls, emails, and appreciate your referrals!
